You focus on the victories and the good that comes of it. You know that in these situations, a client who dies of mesothelioma might not see any of the money that comes from the case, but you know they still have a family to take care of that they leave behind.

Brett Fuller joined Weitz & Luxenberg in 2015, shortly after graduating from law school. Prior to that, Mr. Fuller interned for the Bladen County District Attorney’s Office in North Carolina where he aided in the prosecution of misdemeanor crimes.
Mr. Fuller holds his juris doctor from the SMU Dedman School of Law. While enrolled at Dedman, he served as chief counsel for the SMU Civil Clinic, which focused on providing legal representation to the underprivileged. As chief counsel, Mr. Fuller secured numerous judgments in favor of his clients.
Two years before starting at the firm in 2015, Mr. Fuller worked as a summer intern and witnessed one of the greatest victories in Weitz & Luxenberg’s 30-year history. At the time, the firm was arguing a major case involving multiple plaintiffs and defendants, which he was able to track from start to finish.
The firm won an award of $190 million for five boiler workers in what is believed to be the largest consolidated verdict in New York State history. In that moment, Fuller knew what he wanted to do for a living – and where he wanted to work.
“Talk about perfect timing,” he said. “I was literally sitting in the courtroom while they read off the verdict and got to watch some of the most gifted trial attorneys at our firm, like Danny Kraft and Adam Cooper, in action.
Brett Fuller will be happy to review your case.
