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.
Weitz & Luxenberg has gotten for me quite a bit of money, and there is still more to come. I am extremely grateful that I will leave no debts when I depart this life, I will leave no messes behind — and that’s a good feeling to have when you reach my age.
If you ask me would I recommend Weitz & Luxenberg to a friend, I would answer that it would be my honorable pleasure to do so for the reason that Weitz & Luxenberg continuously demonstrated professional, effectual proficiency in understanding my personal deprivations.
They engaged with the resources necessary to competently resolve my legal issues. Their work on my behalf culminated in what I felt was a fair and just conclusion.
So, yes, without a moment’s hesitation, I’d encourage my friends and associates to turn to this law firm in their own times of need. Weitz & Luxenberg is a prime choice of representation.
I decided to make Weitz & Luxenberg my law firm in 2012, about five months after I was found to have stage IV asbestos lung cancer.
I was in the construction business back in the 1940s and 1950s. There was a lot of asbestos involved in that in those days.
For many years I had breathing problems that required the care of a pulmonologist. He kept giving me X-rays and one day he says he thinks he’d better send me to the cancer clinic.
When you have stage IV cancer, that’s about as serious as it gets. As it was they had to take a good chunk of my lung out and treat me with radiation. But even so they gave me a 50-50 chance of surviving.
Right around that same time, I was watching television and kept seeing commercials for different law firms talking about the millions of dollars available for people who have lung cancers that are caused by asbestos exposure.
These commercials would say that if you’re one of the people affected by this, then you should apply for help.
So I thought, OK, I’ll do that. What I did was I got hold of the first law firm whose commercial they showed when I happened to have a pen and paper handy to write down the phone number.
That law firm was not Weitz & Luxenberg. It was another firm. I contacted that other firm, and the next thing I knew I was being pushed into signing up with them. I didn’t much care for that kind of sales job being done on me.
So I kept looking around. And one reason I kept looking is because I know from experience that if you want a good result you’ve got to go with the best.
I finally found Weitz & Luxenberg, and it didn’t take me long to realize that they were the epitome of what it means to be the best.
I saw they have about a hundred attorneys in the firm, which I thought was a pretty impressive number. It told me this firm had to be strong — and successful.
I also saw that they’d handled a deluge of cases like mine.
The attorney from Weitz & Luxenberg who I worked with was a young lady by the name of Neidra Wilson. I was impressed with her caring and understanding. She was very kind, very sympathetic. She was very interested in me and in making sure that I was helped and properly taken care of.
I later found out that Neidra is typical of Weitz & Luxenberg’s attorneys.
One of the things I really liked about Weitz & Luxenberg was that they told it like it is. With these other firms, it was “maybe we’ll do this” or “maybe we’ll do that.” But with Weitz & Luxenberg, they knew exactly what needed to be done and they fully explained up front what was going to happen. They were ready to go to war for me.
I found the Weitz & Luxenberg people — whether it was attorneys or secretaries or whoever — to be very professional. I also found them to be very humble. They were always willing to take extra steps for me, which surprised me because you don’t see that kind of thing much anymore these days.
As a result, I felt very comfortable working with them. It was like the good feeling you have when things fit right into a groove.
If I have a question about anything at any time, I can call Weitz & Luxenberg and get an answer within a day at the latest. And it’s not just an answer I get – they always ask the same question, “What else can I help you with today?” The effort Weitz & Luxenberg makes to see to it that your needs are met is huge, and it’s impossible not to recognize it or appreciate it.
The work that Weitz & Luxenberg does is a lot like helping blind people get across the street safely. They helped me get across and not be run over.
