Cameron Alan Boyd


Family is very important to me. I come from meager beginnings and grew up in a single parent household. My mother didn’t go to college. But she worked hard. I have huge respect for everything she did. And I have great respect for all working-class people who are doing everything they can to provide for their families. These are the people I want to help.

Weitz & Luxenberg welcomes Cameron Alan Boyd to our experienced and knowledgeable team of mesothelioma and asbestos litigators. “I’m excited to be here. I knew as a kid I wanted to be an attorney when I grew up. Having the opportunity to join Weitz & Luxenberg made me even more excited,” says Mr. Boyd.

Mr. Boyd previously worked for a corporate defense law firm. Although he quickly realized the fit wasn’t right, it was there he was initiated into asbestos exposure litigation. In fact, he managed a caseload of both asbestos litigation and products liability litigation.

“I realized I want to do plaintiff’s work. Being here is a great fit for me. The work Weitz & Luxenberg does aligns with my own values. It gives a voice to the underdog. Everyone here wants to work on behalf of individual, regular people. Not large corporations and industries,” Mr. Boyd emphasizes.

W&L Fights the Big Battles

“Weitz & Luxenberg is one of comparably few large plaintiff’s firms with a strong presence. You can find hundreds of firms representing defendants. But I knew that wasn’t for me,” he explains.

“And to fight the big battles against defendants — companies that can hire dozens of firms and the best of everything — you need to be a prestigious, powerful plaintiff’s law firm with substantial resources. The firm you choose needs to be able to stand up to those challenges. And Weitz & Luxenberg is that firm.”

Our Client Is Our Star Witness

When Mr. Boyd was working in the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, he developed crucial relationships with victims of crime. In fact, victims of abuse, neglect, and assault were often the only “evidence” he had to work with. So, you could not make your case if victims didn’t feel comfortable sharing their stories.

“Building a trusting relationship was key. You need patience and compassion. You need to be able to guide the victim through the process and be a skilled legal professional, but also be a counselor,” points out Mr. Boyd.

“Clients have each experienced a crisis moment in their life. It is my job to help you find the assistance and support you need.”

Experience in Prosecutor Offices

Prior to joining Weitz & Luxenberg, Mr. Boyd served as Deputy Attorney General in the Office of the Attorney General. It was in the Office of the Insurance Fraud Prosecutor, in Trenton, New Jersey. For nearly two years, Mr. Boyd was responsible for managing several dozen criminal cases.

He led investigations involving money laundering, medical necessity of healthcare claims, motor vehicle theft, fictious workers’ compensation claims, falsified life insurance applications, and fraudulent homeowner’s insurance claims.

In 2021, he received the Prosecutor’s Award for Outstanding Performance for leading an investigative team of stakeholders of a healthcare practitioner. The effort resulted in a 260-plus-count indictment.

At the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, Mr. Boyd served as an assistant prosecutor in the Domestic Violence Unit, Special Victim’s Unit Newark, in New Jersey. For two years, he was responsible for leading investigations of hundreds of assault, neglect, abuse, lewdness, and contempt investigations.

This experience gave him the opportunity to handle cases from complaint stage to final disposition. He advised on charging decisions, presenting before the Grand Jury, presenting oral arguments in Superior Court, developing trial strategy, drafting motions, preparing indictments, and obtaining search warrants.

Essex Vicinage

Mr. Boyd also had the opportunity to work for the Honorable Mark S. Ali, J.S.C., at the Essex Vicinage in Newark. As Superior Court Judicial Clerk, he was responsible for supervising criminal motion practice in New Jersey’s busiest vicinage. He drafted judicial orders and jury charge instructions, and conducted mediations in special civil matters. One of his post-conviction relief applications included a precedent-setting case involving the issue of a juvenile defendant sentenced to life imprisonment.

On the Personal Side

Mr. Boyd is licensed to practice law in New Jersey and New York. This includes the New Jersey Supreme Court and the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division. He earned his J.D. from Rutgers School of Law — Newark and his B.A. from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

Outside the office, Mr. Boyd loves fitness and exercise. He describes himself as a “gym rat” who enjoys weight-lifting, bike riding, and running. He also loves reading, music, and spending time with his rescue dog, a Chihuahua mix.
