I have been with Weitz & Luxenberg since practically the very beginning. Throughout those years, in my role as a senior trial attorney, I have been able to help many people suffering from debilitating diseases and incapacitating personal injuries. I have obtained for my clients some of our firm’s largest mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer verdicts. I have also obtained some of our firm’s largest verdicts for people injured in construction and motor vehicle accidents and for those injured by defective products. I am quite proud of what our firm has been able to accomplish.


Weitz & Luxenberg is home to outstanding and supremely talented personal injury attorneys. Among them: Michael P. Roberts, recognized as a Best Lawyer and five times named a Super Lawyer.

Mr. Roberts joined Weitz & Luxenberg more than a quarter-century ago. A few years after starting with the firm, he became a member of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy – a nonprofit organization at the forefront of showing up-and-coming attorneys how to be highly effective legal advocates. NITA soon afterward began utilizing Mr. Roberts to teach law students the winning ways of trying cases.

More recently, he has taught moot-trial classes at Hofstra University School of Law. The New York State Trial Lawyers Association, too, has drawn upon the expertise of Mr. Roberts – specifically, to instruct members in the art and science of examining expert medical witnesses on the courtroom stand.

Apart from law practice, Mr. Roberts is actively involved with the Children’s Medical Foundation, United Jewish Appeal, Working Organization for Retarded Children and Adults, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and Hoops 4 Hope. He also volunteers as a coach of community soccer, basketball and baseball teams. Among Mr. Roberts’ personal pursuits are travel, golf and long-distance running – to date, he has participated in four New York City marathons.
