Weitz & Luxenberg, PC
For more than 25 years, the attorneys at Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. have been fighting for the rights of their clients nationwide. The largest personal injury law firm in New York state also boasts offices in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and Los Angeles, California. The firm's legal practice, made up of over 80 attorneys, is focused primarily in the area of plaintiffs' personal injury matters, with a concentration on mesothelioma resulting from asbestos exposure, defective medical devices and environmental law torts.
Since the firm's inception, its attorneys have obtained numerous multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts, including a $423 million settlement in a case in which 153 public water systems across the nation were contaminated. Other notable results include a $75 million verdict following a consolidated trial in which the firm represented men who had been employed at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s. The firm also won a $47 million verdict for its client following a jury trial in the case of a boilermaker who died from mesothelioma. One of the firm's attorneys served as lead counsel in multicounty litigation in New Jersey concerning defective hip stems and was instrumental in obtaining a settlement of more than $1 billion for the plaintiffs. The ethic of giving of one’s time and money to the less fortunate is ingrained within the partners, attorneys and staff of Weitz & Luxenberg, P.C.
The ethic of performing such acts of kindness in a quiet, unassuming manner is also part of the firm’s value system and is articulated in the many philanthropic initiatives the firm pursues. Giving to mesothelioma research is central to our firm because of the close relationship with our clients who suffer from the disease. That is why we give significant support to the mesothelioma research being conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital, a leader in mesothelioma research. In this way, we are pursuing monetary settlements for asbestos victims while simultaneously working toward an improved quality of life for our clients.
With national recognition in plaintiffs' personal injury law, the firm's attorneys often serve on committees overseeing litigation in cases across the country. Ten of the attorneys in the firm have been selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers and thirteen have been selected for inclusion in Super Lawyer’s Rising Star for their legal skill and acumen.
