Clifford J. Shoemaker

Cliff Shoemaker graduated from the Drake University Law School in1973 with a law degree (J.D.) and a masters in business administration (M.B.A.). He received a Masters of Law from the George Washington University Law School in 1977 and has been practicing law for over 32 years.

Cliff's specialties of practice are drug and product liability, personal injury litigation, and vaccine injuries. He has represented hundreds of petitioners under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act. Prior to his involvement in these cases, he specialized, since 1978, in vaccine litigation, including DPT, MMR, polio, influenza and other vaccines. He has developed considerable medical expertise and knows numerous medical experts in the field. He has been involved in putting on seminars for other attorneys in this field.

Cliff spent several years representing victims of swine flu vaccines (given in 1976-77). He tried cases in federal district courts all over the country and was responsible for numerous settlements and verdicts, including verdicts of $5 million, $3.9 million, $2.4 million and $1.9 million, among others. Cliff also represented hundreds of victims of the Dalkon Shield IUD. Other cases have included medical malpractice, product liability (such as winning hundreds of thousands of dollars in an escalator accident case), improper prescriptions cases, and automobile accident cases.

Today, Cliff is one of the lawyers focusing his attention on the national disaster that occurred in the 90's when we poisoned a substantial number of our children with mercury, creating an autism epidemic.
