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.
