Members of our experienced team are on call 24/7 to answer questions and ensure that all your needs are met. Being able to put your trust in a strong, powerful law firm is a tremendous benefit. Weitz & Luxenberg gives families that advantage.

How We Do It

Our three decades of experience litigating against, and negotiating with, companies and their lawyers provides substantial benefits for the successful prosecution of trials and the maximization of settlements. We’ve built a reputation for excellence among judges and opposing counsel, and have developed winning methods for explaining complicated scientific and medical issues to juries.

Asbestos Trust Advisory

Companies that manufactured asbestos products in the U.S. and subsequently declared bankruptcy established trusts to compensate workers and their families. We serve on 25 corporate bankruptcy Trust Advisory Committees.

Court-Appointed Liaison Counsel

Our lawyers have served as court-appointed liaison counsel for state and federal asbestos, breast implant, hip-replacement, consumer class action, and other litigation.

Asbestos Discovery

Weitz & Luxenberg investigates each case and determines where people were exposed to asbestos, what products they were exposed to, and what companies are responsible.

Who We Help

Our firm fights for people who would otherwise be without a voice. We stand up for their legal rights. We advocate for blue-collar workers — men and women who built this country but are now devastated because of mesothelioma. We represent families who have been exposed to contaminants in the air and in water, and we champion patients whose lives were forever altered by defective drugs or devices.

Lawsuits Against 100+ Companies

Weitz & Luxenberg has evolved into one of the most comprehensive and resource-rich plaintiff’s firms in the nation, with the ability to provide top-flight legal services across a broad spectrum of practices. To date, our firm has sued many giant corporations, earning us The National Law Journal’s recognition as one of the “Elite Trial Law Firms in the United States.”

56,000 Clients Helped

Our lawyers have not only cultivated a bond of trust with thousands of thankful clients, but also have gone above and beyond to give each client complete attention and legal representation. We have helped over 50,000 people, and we expect to help thousands more. Even competing law firms refer numerous asbestos-related cases to us every year.

Who We Fight

Many of our clients went to work every day to support their families and looked forward to enjoying their retirement. Corporate greed and negligence took that away from them. Our firm is committed to holding corporations accountable for putting profits over the health of their customers and employees.

Corporations with Asbestos Liability

Job-related asbestos exposure is largely preventable, yet many American companies ignored the potentially toxic effects of asbestos. Some even hid the dangers from workers, including their own employees.

Taking Legal Action

Our firm has helped secure landmark results from a record-setting $190 million asbestos verdict in 2013 to the $7.8 billion settlement with BP in the Gulf Oil Spill litigation.
