Gary Pitts, a retired captain in the Army National Guard, devotes much of his practice to representing the Gulf War Veterans who have been plagued with health ailments since the 1991 war. A lawsuit has been filed against the companies that built Saddam Hussein's chemical and nerve gas facilities, provided him with production materials for those facilities and their contents, and sold him chemical precursors for those weapons of mass destruction. When these facilities were destroyed during the Gulf War, the toxic chemicals were carried downwind, causing severe ailments (including a multi-symptom neurological disorder) in these veterans and even birth defects in their children.
Mr. Pitts earned his law degree at Tulane University in New Orleans. Through the affiliated Texas-based law firm of Pitts & Associates, Mr. Pitts is counsel to the New York City personal injury attorneys of McCallion & Associates LLP.
