Our Attorneys

Professional yet personal attorneys fight for you against those whose negligence caused harm to you or a loved one.

Robin L. Greenwald
Robert J. Gordon
Jerry Kristal
Gary R. Klein
  • Robin L. Greenwald
    Of Counsel
    Focus: Environmental Pollution, Consumer Protection

    "A former Assistant United States Attorney and Assistant Chief of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Environmental Crimes Section, Ms. Greenwald today heads the Weitz & Luxenberg Environmental Toxic Torts and Consumer Protection Litigation group. She joined Weitz & Luxenberg in 2005 and has since then led her team to several notable triumphs."

  • Robert J. Gordon
    Lead Attorney
    Focus: Mesothelioma and Asbestos

    "Toughness of the sort embodied by Mr. Gordon is exactly the type required to win big. Mr. Gordon’s victories through the years now cumulatively stand in excess of $405 million, mainly from verdicts against the makers and marketers of asbestos products, harm-causing medicines, dangerous medical devices, and more. In 2011, Best Lawyers named Mr. Gordon "New York Mass Torts Litigator of the Year.""

  • Jerry Kristal
    Lead Attorney
    Focus: Mesothelioma and Asbestos

    "Most of the cases in which he plays an active role are those involving either asbestos exposures (mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis) or injuries caused by dangerous pharmaceuticals and medical devices — with regard to the former, some of the verdicts he has obtained are among the highest ever brought in against U.S. asbestos defendants."

  • Gary R. Klein
    Managing Attorney
    Focus: Personal Injury and Malpractice

    "Mr. Klein is an accomplished negotiator who actively participates in settlement discussions. His involvement is one reason why Weitz & Luxenberg has been able to consistently secure such substantial sums (often reaching seven figures) from defendants who conclude that a fight in court will end badly for them."

Weitz & Luxenberg Gives Back

One of the main goals of our firm is to give back to the people and the communities that we are a part of.

Most recently we have created the iWalk4Meso project to raise public awareness about mesothelioma, a rare disease linked to asbestos exposure, and to generate funds for related research.
