"I write to thank you and all of your lawyers and staff for achieving a substantial settlement recently. There were complicated issues of liability… I am convinced there are very few law firms that could have achieved your result and that would have fought so very hard for Joe. Your lawyers are professional and compassionate."
- W.P., Astoria, NY
"Because someone was careless with asbestos and didn’t do anything to keep people like my mom safe, I lost her and I lost my older brother both in the same day. My mom was still alive when she called Weitz & Luxenberg for help. She made the decision to call right after being diagnosed with mesothelioma. She knew what mesothelioma was, she knew how it happens, and she knew what was coming. For those reasons, she also knew that she needed to get legal representation quickly."
- John Pilla, NJ
"I’m pleased with the results Weitz & Luxenberg achieved for me in my recently settled case. I was suing a hip-replacement company that tried to act like they did nothing wrong. But the fact is they allowed a defective medical device to go out. That was incredibly wrong. This company needed to learn that their actions were incredibly wrong and that there are consequences to your bad actions."
- Barbara Zimmerman, Denver
"The loss of my husband Albert in 2009 was magnitudes of grief and tragedy. Gone was the love of my life. But also gone was the adored grandfather of a mentally and physically disabled child who had lost her own father – Albert’s and my son – just two years before. If not for Weitz & Luxenberg, what’s left of my family would never have had the opportunity to see justice done. I really believe that."
- Joan S., New York, NY
"My Weitz & Luxenberg legal team led by Mr. Peter Samberg obtained for me twice as much money as I thought I would be able to receive from my lawsuit. I was very pleased about that."
- Nina Young, CO
"I recommend Peter Samberg and his law firm, Weitz & Luxenberg. I’ve already recommended them to friends of mine who needed legal help. My own need for legal help goes back to having had arthritis in my hip. I was having trouble walking and fell a couple of times."
- James Pickard, CO
"While my dad was dying of mesothelioma, his biggest fear was that Mom wouldn’t be taken care of after he was gone. ...That’s why I’m so glad Dad got help from Weitz & Luxenberg. Were he still alive, he would be really pleased to see how things have worked out. So far, Mom has received many settlements — with more still to come. It overwhelms us, the amount of money she’s gotten. Mom’s going to be very comfortable and set for the rest of her life."
- Sue Crawford, PA
"For the longest time I’ve wanted a nice home of my own for me and my three children to live in. Weitz & Luxenberg made my dream come true by getting me enough money that I can finally have such a place. ... I came to Weitz & Luxenberg because I needed to sue some hospitals. This was the first time I ever had to sue somebody, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But Weitz & Luxenberg helped me to understand everything. After I talked to Weitz & Luxenberg, I didn’t feel like it was necessary to talk to other attorneys. Everybody who I mentioned it to, that I had talked with Weitz & Luxenberg, said they were one of the best. So I felt confident that Weitz & Luxenberg would be the right lawyers to use."
- C. J., NY
"I've dealt with counsel many times when I was able to work nine years ago as an insurance examiner. No attorney or firm displayed the efficiency and care that you have provided. But more than that you gave each of your clients a feeling that we care and count."
"Weitz & Luxenberg is not like the typical law firm. I know because I’ve been around. Weitz & Luxenberg, these guys aren’t charlatans. They aren’t greedy. They’re humanitarians. Genuine humanitarians. They’re on a quest to help people. They really are. The help I received from Weitz & Luxenberg was incredible. And it came at a time when I needed it the most because of the very bad situation I was in, both in regards to my health and finances."
- Jim Kress, PA
"My wonderful husband passed away about a year and a half ago of mesothelioma. My heart broke; he wanted to live and he was trying to do everything possible just to prolong his life for us. Financially, I don't know what we would have done if it wasn't for Weitz & Luxenberg."
"I'd like to thank W&L on behalf of myself and my deceased husband, who died of peritoneal mesothelioma, for their dedication, professionalism and compassion in their continued handling of our case."
"Kind, compassionate, understanding – made me feel completely at ease. Thank you."
"W&L has always had my best interest first and foremost. I'm glad they work for me and not the asbestos companies."
"If it wasn't for your company, we never would have gotten anything. It is greatly appreciated. Keep up the good work. Thank you very much."
"I feel confident that you are looking out for your clients. I am grateful for all the help your firm has given to us."
"W&L, a quality firm producing fast, fair and accurate results. I would choose no other."
"Without W&L, the people poisoned by asbestos would have no recourse or protection."
"We really appreciate your hard work on our behalf and the compensation checks have been nice along the way."
"I think W&L has done a splendid job beyond my expectations. When I receive a surprise check, it's like winning the lottery. Thank you."
"You are a great help to me and my brother firemen."
"I can't thank you enough. My 21 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren thank you. I can't believe how honest you have all been. Thanks again."
"I feel that W&L lawyers are a very professional team fighting to right a wrong that asbestos poisoning brings to me and my family. Thank you for easing the pain a little."
"W&L will work timelessly on your behalf and will get you the maximum settlements possible while requiring a minimum amount of effort on your part."
"We appreciate your hard work in keeping us on top of your list and representing us. Receiving your check at this time of our life is surely a godsend. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
"A courteous, dependable and efficient team. Money does not make you happy but it quiets the nerves. I thank you for your untiring efforts to fight for us who are powerless to do so for ourselves."
"W&L were very thorough identifying all the asbestos products I came in contact with while working at G.E. for 35 years. Thanks."
"I've never been so satisfied with legalities in my 80 years. Thank you so much for your dedication to the asbestos litigation."
"W&L have professionally and vigorously pursued my claims. I could not have gotten such positive results without them."
"If it was not for W&L, who would stand up for us? W&L really cares and are completely thorough. I only wish our compensation would come quicker. Thank you for having our backs."
"My husband worked on construction for 42 years and has been exposed to asbestos and other chemicals. As a retired member, we are glad and thankful for you working on his behalf. I feel my husband deserved much more as he was exposed to other unknown chemicals that affected his health. Thank you."
"My comment is not only about me, but also my late father. We put our claims in with W&L many years ago, and we are still receiving benefits. My cancer worsened and W&L has compensated me for my deterioration. Thank you!"
"You have been great. Your unending work allowed me and my husband to enjoy his last years of retirement. Since he's been gone it seems that whenever I have a crisis, along comes a check from you. I am now facing surgery, so this last check will greatly help me and my family. Thank you again."
"W&L provided a measure of peace for me and my family, and a measure of justice for my loving husband. Thank you so much."
"I often think of my husband Bernie. I am overwhelmed at his loss. W&L has given my family and myself an opportunity to help each other through our loss in a profound way. We hope and pray others may be protected against hazardous materials."
"Thank you for representing my husband's estate. I miss him every day and know your hard work honors his memory."
"My husband passed away from asbestos. He felt that he would not qualify for any money because half of his illness probably started in Europe. Thanks to W&L’s research, he was able to receive rewards and died happy because he knew I would be taken care of. Thank you."
"Receiving this settlement was very helpful at this time of my life! I am so thankful that my husband chose W&L to work on our behalf and obtain compensation for his illness due to asbestos exposure."
"I thank you all for what you have done. He has passed on and I am all by myself. It is hard. He told me before he passed that I could count on you all. God bless."
"Some say "Why do we need lawyers?" The answer is obvious – without professional representation i.e., lawyers getting to the truth and seeking restitutions, I would have nowhere to go. Thank you for your professional services. Keep up the good work."
"You have been great – only a phone call away. Your staff took care of everything. We could not ask for any more. Bless you for being there for us."
"Over the years W&L have done right by me. I'm very pleased to have them in my "corner.""
"It may be your pleasure to have sent me a check, it is indeed more than a pleasure to have received it."
"Thank you people, for all your help in the past and future. This means a lot to us. A retired 325 Load Electrician. God bless all!"
"I cannot bring my father back. However you have penalized those responsible for my dad's asbestos exposure. The proceeds are in better hands! W&L, you are good."
"For years I have worked with the friendly and competent staff at W&L. Their diligent efforts on my behalf have been very rewarding. Trust W&L all the way."
"I appreciate all that W&L has done to help me get what is deserved from the companies that put me in contact with the hazardous materials that have caused my medical problems."
"W&L has been thoroughly professional and courteous from the very beginning of our claim. They helped our family very much during the darkest time of our lives after the loss of our father due to the disease of mesothelioma."
"It is with great sadness that I write to inform you that my beloved husband passed away on June 8. I want you to know that both he and I truly appreciated all of the many times you went to court and fought and won settlements on his behalf for all the years he worked in the plumbing and heating field with asbestos and asbestos-related materials. Little did we know then what a toll it would take on the health of those who worked with it. My most sincere thanks go to all of you for the most helpful monetary awards you sent when it was greatly needed. I will always fondly and gratefully remember your fine firm. God bless each of you greatly!"
"In reference to the recent settlement of my husband’s asbestos case, which my family and I were more than pleased, I want to say a VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to all the staff who worked on his case. You all did a great job and you made a very stressful and emotional situation bearable and for that I am truly grateful."
"W&L has greatly improved the quality of life for me and my family. While I sincerely wish I never had lung cancer, knowing that my family would be provided for gave me peace of mind and made me less fearful of the future. Thank you."
"W&L has been extremely thorough in determining what firms were responsible for my asbestos disease. They deserve all of the praise that I give to them. Thanks for all your help and care."
"With all the loss of my quality of life, due to my problems from asbestos, the awards from your efforts make life so much better. And it’s providing a nest egg for my wife after I'll be gone. Thank you."
"I have been my parents' executrix for many years and W&L has helped me sort out all these complicated issues with the lawsuits. They are always responsive and clear with these complex situations and do a great job of keeping me current on the status of everything. A great job."
"I appreciate the fact that you people have the interest in the people who worked to keep our country strong."
"I have recommended W&L to many people since 2010! I lost my husband of 54 years to mesothelioma in 2010. Nothing, no amount of money, can make up for that loss. However, W&L has been aggressive to help me, and has worked diligently and steadily to help ease my pain. I cry every time I receive a check, but I’m grateful to W&L."
"I think W&L are the best attorneys you can ever find. Thank God for them."
"We have been so pleased with W&L representing us in our asbestos claim. They have always been available to answer any questions we had and guided us on all issues. We are so thankful."
"W&L = responsive and attentive to client phone calls. They "take care of business" promptly and have a professional and friendly staff. This is so important to us, as we live many miles away from their NY or LA main offices!"
"W&L is passionate about their work and compassionate with their clients."
"Glad to have W&L with all their knowledge working on my side."
"Thank you W&L you came to my assist when no one else could!"
"As a former employee from the New York City area working in various segments of transportation, I was exposed to harmful chemicals. W&L has worked hard to recover compensation on my behalf and I would not hesitate to recommend their services."
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank your company for representing me in my asbestos law suit. This has certainly been a windfall for me and my family. I never would have dreamed that I would see results so quickly. For this I am thankful, considering my lung problems. Again, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart- thanking you and your wonderful company for helping me and others like myself in similar circumstances."
"Thank you and whoever has anything to do on any of my claims. I appreciate your efforts. ."
"I want to thank you for the care and understanding you have shown to us during the very difficult past two years. You presented the case and facts in such a way that assured John’s dignity and integrity. Your skill and expertise has brought the law suit to a very successful conclusion."
"I appreciate all you have done for me on my behalf. My lungs aren't getting any better but it helps cover the cost of medicine. Thank you."
"I'm so grateful to you all for your hard work. Thank you for giving me some means of independence in my advanced age, without my dear husband. God bless you all."
"You guys are wonderful!! You have made it possible for me to do things that I wouldn't have been able to do without your help. Thank you so much."
"Professional. Sensitive. W&L’s Allan Zelikovic personified both. He managed to successfully guide our bereaved family through its trauma."
"My children and I would like to thank you for helping and guiding us during our time of need. For fighting for justice for my wife. Allowing us to grieve and without worrying about the details of the case. We really appreciate your legal services, and would like to give a special thanks to Allan Zelikovic and his assistant Antoinette Waite for going out of your way and taking time to come visit my kids and explaining the case to them."
"We just wanted to extend our deepest thank you to all the people who are working on our case, the diligence of everyone involved is appreciated. The last check was a blessing with the oxygen bills to pay. Thank you all and God Bless. We will be looking forward to other monetary settlements from other companies."
"I wanted to take this opportunity to send a big "Thank You". I received my settlement check last Thursday for my claim against Bayer for my mother's death caused by Baycol. In my opinion your firm is great and you are providing a valuable service by giving ordinary people a voice against the abuses of large companies."
"We would like to thank you and your staff for the outstanding Baycol Case. Your hard work and professionalism paid off. Again, thanks for everything. May God Bless you all."
"I would like to thank the law firm of W&Land their whole staff for the excellent work you all did with the Baycol settlement. May the year… bring all of you good health and happiness and all the years to come."
"This has given me a much brighter future. I was able to pay off all my bills and have some money left to fill one of my goals in owning my own home."
"Thank you for all your work on my recent diet drug case. You have helped me to close a very difficult chapter in my life, both emotionally and financially, and I am incredibly grateful to you. About a day after I received my check and had deposited it, the reality of what you and your firm accomplished on my behalf finally sunk in -- I cried. I feel victorious and that in some small way justice has prevailed for the little guy (gal) over the corporate giant. Thanks for leveling the playing field."
"I am very satisfied with the outcome of the settlement for my case. I want to thank each and every one who was involved in this settlement."
"Thank you very much for the outstanding job you did representing me in my diet drug case. The professionalism and courtesy shown by your staff is second to none."
"Please thank everyone that worked on my husband’s case for everything. It does not bring Bob back, but it is somewhat of a comfort to know he was watching over us to make sure Nick and I will be financially OK."
"You recently sent a large settlement check and blew me away. How can I thank you and the others for this nice surprise. So much work goes into a case and I was fortunate to pick the right firm to represent me."
"As a retired New York City fireman, I am very grateful to W&L, as my attorneys, for obtaining compensation for my medical conditions (cancer)."

"W&L has been very efficient in all your research and caring and sharing in my behalf. Many, many thanks."
"I would like to acknowledge how grateful I am to Weitz & Luxenberg for their dedication and ability to persevere and finally win a case my wife and I were involved in. Their name, and power in that name, and their hard work paid dividends for us. Thank you so much to the good people at Weitz & Luxenberg for not only representing us but also for being a friend to us."
"My experience with Weitz & Luxenberg was a smooth one. It was great to have an experienced team like them in my corner."
"The firm genuinely cared about my family and diligently worked hard on our case and saw it through to the end."
"You have worked very hard for my husband. It's been such a pleasure and relief knowing you are there. Thank you again. I want to take a little time on behalf of my ailing husband and myself to thank you so very much to keep working for us. When he gets a check in the mail it's a blessing. We're living from check to check. God bless you. You are wonderful."
"You and your staff are to be commended. I have never been involved in a litigation before and had no idea what would happen. You relieved that tension."
"We were very happy to receive this check, it sure helped us with the Sandy Storm Hurricane. We’re still trying to fix up. Thank you for your help, we appreciate it."
"This is to say thank you for all your people and you for the work you have done for us. May you all have a wonderful year... You have made mine."
"Thank you very much for the recent check you sent for my asbestos case. I am very happy with the results W&L have accomplished so far."
"Thank you for making people aware of asbestos poisoning, and finding some compensation for all the pain and suffering that occurs in the lives of people and families that have this happen in their lives."
"It is because of W&L as attorneys acting on behalf of Robert's estate that allowed his wife, my sister, to live the rest of her life in a dignified manner."
"W&L has done the right thing by me. I am a Navy vet and retired steamfitter NYC LU 638. Thank you."
"The efforts by the staff at W&L have been stellar. Our claim has enabled us to financially take care of our mother and all her medical and housing needs! W&L took a huge burden off of us. Thank you."
"You have been so thorough and wonderful about everything. I really appreciate the time you took to talk to me and explain everything in detail. You really stand behind your clients. Thank you for so much, for everything."
"The concern and professionalism flowed together to bring an acceptable conclusion to a devastating situation. I am extremely happy we chose W&L."
"I heard from Vinnie this morning that we are officially at the close of my case. I wanted to thank you both for all of the great work you did for me over the past few years. Although it did not turn out the way we had anticipated at the start that does not lessen the value of all of the work you both did and my gratefulness for that.
You were both professional, very prompt at getting back to me when I had questions, and took the time to explain everything along the way. That is so very valuable to a client as we are so unfamiliar with these processes. I feel you both did your best for me and I appreciate that so much. I am happy that I chose Weitz & Luxenberg to represent me and especially pleased that I was able to work with both of you on my case. Wishing you both the best."
"If it wasn't for your kindness and long hours of hard work on our behalf, I don't know where we would be. Thank you hardly seems enough. Our family will forever be indebted to you."
"I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for being so kind and patient with me. This has been a tough path to go down. I don't know what I would do without my faith in God or the help you have given me."
"My father, Clarence Condran, was diagnosed with mesothelioma back in March. He started in the steel mill in 1950. That exposure was the main exposure Dad received as a bricklayer. I called Weitz & Luxenberg and they showed a unique sense of caring for him. It was a no-brainer; I needed to go with that law firm. I can tell you firsthand that Weitz & Luxenberg is with you every step of the way. "
"Please know that I am a client that is very grateful to have come under your umbrella. Your follow-through was so reassuring and nurturing at all times. I hope you will continue this path for many years to come. "
"I'm very grateful for all. Without you I would be in a very serious financial problem. With the money I received, I was able to pay back the creditors, got a nice used car, also had the implants removed, that was a great relief needless to say they were leaking."
"It is not often that one "beats City Hall" and it is with some satisfaction that I tell you how grateful I am and how grateful my dear Phyllis would have been, had she been alive to see it. "
"A bad experience in my past left me with a distaste for lawyers. I'm happy to say you have renewed my confidence in the legal profession. Without your patience & dedication I'm sure my case would not have turned out so well."
"It has been a long road. I know many of you worked hard and put in many hours and for that I am grateful. I am appreciative of the settlement you have obtained for me and although it has been an emotional road please do not take that as an under-appreciation. "
"Thank you for all your hard work. You can never put a price on a person’s life. I know my husband would be happy you're giving me some security for the rest of my life."
"Kind, compassionate staff who will take care of all your needs and answer any of your questions you may have."

"When we filed with W&L, our family had no idea the research, support, and eventual returns would be so professionally provided. While we can never replace our father, your efforts ensured the care of our mother. Thank you so much."
"The most pleasant experience I have had with a most unpleasant situation. W&L has been wonderfully competent, caring and courteous. Thank you so much."
"I am thankful and appreciative of how well W&L handled our case, and smoothly, too. Their expertise, help and guidance through it all, also, was outstanding. Thank you."
"Your company has helped me so much in the last 8 years of my husband Philip's death. Your kindness to help with even the smallest question was handled and still is with consideration. I feel as if I was talking to friends rather than a law firm."
"I want to thank W&L for the thousands of dollars they have gotten for me. It has helped me so much after my husband passed away."
"If I had the choice of using your firm, which I didn't as executor, I would have chosen your firm. You handled this lawsuit with such professionalism and concern. I would hire you if I had to do it again."
"Thank you so much for your competent representation. At my age, I can use all the help I can get. I am an old WWII vet of the 101st Airborne Division. Thank you and have a good day."
"When the union notified us that W&L was going to be testing for lung disease, many of us jumped at the chance to receive some recognition for our years of working with little or no protection, and for working with products that were detrimental to our health. I want to thank you for helping those of us with no voice. Thank you, also, for the compensation we have received."
"Thank you for your continued work on my dad's settlement. My sister, brother, and I feel like our deceased father and mother are still taking care of us even when they are not here anymore."
"You are very professional. Whenever I needed advice you gave it to me right away. I have complete trust in you. Thanks for all your help through the years. Also, the money has helped me though these hard times."

"Thank you W&L for being a true fighter for the little guy in the asbestos claims."
"I appreciate your kindness and concern in your efforts to bring some peace of mind after the passing of my husband from asbestos. Thank you again for all your work and kindness at this difficult time."

"You folks have done an excellent job on my behalf in recovering for me money from the asbestos companies. Money I never would have received otherwise!"
"As a retired 638 Steamfitter, it is comforting to know you are still out there working for me after all these years. Thank you."
"I am very pleased to have W&L to represent me because without your firm I would have never been able to challenge all these asbestos companies on my own, paying out of my pocket. Thank you!"
"W&L was successful in handling my case, even though I didn't have a case. I had lung cancer and thought that's just my bad luck. I didn't realize it was caused by asbestos exposure in the navy. W&L are #1 in my book."
"It has been my good fortune to have you folks looking over my shoulder and leaving no stone unturned on my behalf. Your steadfast commitment to seek all the money that I should receive for my condition is gratefully appreciated."
"Thank you for your efforts on our behalf. I wish you were magic and could bring my husband back. Short of that, I am glad your works holds accountable the companies who knew asbestos causes cancer and held the lives of exposed people in such disregard."
"When my spouse passed away, W&L was there to help me in setting up an estate account. Answering all my questions has helped me every step of the way. Without them I wouldn't have been able to continue the asbestos-related actions. Thank you for standing by me."
"I have been very pleased with the results I have received. In the beginning I felt it was a waste of time, but I know I have been greatly surprised. Thank you for a great job."
"You helped more than I ever expected. The checks have been coming in over a period of 5 years now, and the amounts are significant."
"When I saw the W&L television advertisement, I called them and from the very beginning the lawyers and employees have given me personal and friendly attention, which has been excellent. W&L live up to their excellent reputation."
The loss of my husband Albert in 2009 was magnitudes of grief and tragedy. Gone was the love of my life. But also gone was the adored grandfather of a mentally and physically disabled child who had lost her own father -- Albert's and my son -- just two years before. If not for Weitz & Luxenberg, what's left of my family would never have had the opportunity to see justice done. I really believe that.
We won a settlement of $500,000 for a woman whose uterus was damaged during a surgical procedure.Personal Injury and Malpractice
