Stuart R. Friedman

Of Counsel


Weitz & Luxenberg champions working people — people who would otherwise be without a voice to stand up for their legal rights. I consider it a great honor to be able to help them obtain the justice they seek.

Stuart R. Friedman is one of our Of Counsel attorneys. Mr. Friedman joined Weitz & Luxenberg in 1995 and continued with the firm until 2007, at which time he began helping companies based in Israel, as well serving as the managing attorney for a law firm with offices in New York and New Jersey. In 2012, he rejoined the ranks at Weitz & Luxenberg in order to participate with us in a number of important litigations, most prominently our action against the makers of the DePuy ASR, the recalled metal on metal hip, as well as Actos — the diabetes drug blamed for causing bladder cancer. He reviewed many thousands of pages of documentary discovery files to locate key records showing corporate misconduct and product failures.

Prior to private practice, Mr. Friedman began his career as a law assistant to the Hon. William Ritholtz, a Kings County, New York, Civil Court judge. Mr. Friedman received his juris doctor degree from Western New England College School of Law in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1982. He was a member of the Western New England Law Review, a regional quarterfinalist in the National Trial Advocacy Competition, and chief trial attorney in the Barristers Society Mock Trial Program.

Mr. Friedman received a bachelor’s degree in 1978 from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where he majored in political science. He spent one of his SUNY years studying at Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel.
