    A highly regarded trial lawyer, Samuel M. Meirowitz is the co-founder of Meirowitz & Wasserberg, LLP. Providing representation to clients throughout the New York City metropolitan area, he focuses his practice primarily on plaintiff's personal injury and wrongful death litigation, with a particular emphasis on assisting people who have been harmed by exposure to asbestos and other toxic materials. Mr. Meirowitz also handles cases involving defective products, including drugs and medical devices, and he represents employees who have been the victims of sexual harassment, workplace discrimination, whistleblower retaliation and wrongful termination.

    In 1996, Mr. Meirowitz graduated from the State University of New York at Albany with a Bachelor of Arts. He then pursued his legal education at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, part of Yeshiva University. After graduation, he joined a firm that handled bad faith insurance claims on behalf of policy holders. Mr. Meirowitz then spent several years as a prosecutor at the Office of the Bronx District Attorney and then six years as a senior trial lawyer with one of the nation's leading plaintiff firms before co-founding his current firm in 2015. Admitted to practice in New York, he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit.
