Your editor, Jane Akre, plans to push for answers and to advance the concerns I hear from readers, concerns I’ve heard such as – When should I change lawyers?  Can my law firm really drop me?   Why does my case say I’m settled when I’m not?  What happens when I”m remanded to state court?  Why does my law firm not talk to me and what can I do about it?

Of course you can and should advocate for yourself by becoming an active participant in this Q and A session.  Please register for the Webinar and plan the questions you want answered.

About the Author:

I’m National News Editor, Jane Akre and I began Mesh Medical Device News Desk aka Mesh News Desk (MND) in the summer of 2011 just after the Food and Drug Administration issued an explicit warning to the public that complications associated with surgical mesh used for prolapse repair (POP) and incontinence (SUI) are NOT rare! That was the starting point for the litigation you see today and thousands of lawsuits have been filed by women whose lives have been altered, some permanently, by the use of this petroleum-based product.

    Just so it is clear, you do not have to appear in person. You just dial into some numbers given in advance. And no one has access to your email, just me and the other presenter. We will not share them.

    Do we have to tell our attorneys? I’m thinking that we are not allowed to be involved in anything that contains this and I cannot put my true identity up.

      Don’t use your identity….make up a name. Nothing will be made public.

    Unfortunately I was in the hospital for pain related to scar tissue surrounding current transvaginal mesh and missed the webinar. Can I get some of the highlights?

    I was sent paperwork stating that Judge Godwin was going to give really iepients of ethic on prolific made by ethicon a 5 year time frame to have repairs and removals and then the case could be revisited. My attorney has also released me as a client and says I have the option to rehire if needed. I am so confused
