What you find at Weitz & Luxenberg are experienced litigators who bring into your corner their far-ranging and cutting-edge knowledge of the law and procedure. That’s important because, as the saying goes, knowledge is power. And because success is our goal, you’ll find we’re dedicated to 24/7 service, committed to standing by your side from start to finish.
Gary Klein serves as Weitz & Luxenberg’s managing attorney — he is responsible for all day-to-day operations and for determining which prospective negligence cases to accept based on a meticulous assessment of the injuries claimed, the time frames in which they occurred and many other considerations that shape a litigation’s chances for success (the many clients with whom he meets find his kindly demeanor and ability to empathize most reassuring during this process).
Mr. Klein is also an accomplished negotiator who actively participates in settlement discussions as they arise — 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.
Mr. Klein has been associated with Weitz & Luxenberg co-founders Perry Weitz and Arthur Luxenberg since 1988, the same year he began the practice of law. Mr. Klein is admitted to practice in New Jersey and New York and before the U.S. District Court in New Jersey and in the Southern and Eastern districts of New York.
Mr. Klein studied law at Hofstra University, from which he earned a juris doctor degree in 1988. Originally from the Canadian province of Quebec, Mr. Klein is fluent in French — an invaluable ability when it comes to assisting clients for whom the Gallic tongue is their only or primary language (he also speaks Hungarian, Yiddish and limited Hebrew).
The American Association of Justice, New York State Trial Lawyers Assn., New York State Bar Assn., New York County Bar Assn., Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers, Jewish Lawyers Guild are organizations in which Mr. Klein currently maintains membership.
W&L's Medical Malpractice team has worked on more than 1,000 lawsuits for wrongful death, injury and misdiagnosis. Headed by attorney Allan Zelikovic, in 2013 they recovered $7 million for clients.
