The ruinous consequences of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related illnesses should not be borne by people who worked hard to earn a living. And for that reason, I am proud to be part of the team at Weitz & Luxenberg — a team that stands up for the victims of mesothelioma and asbestos disease by giving them an extraordinarily powerful voice against wealthy corporate asbestos defendants.

Jason Yampolsky joined Weitz & Luxenberg in 2015, intent on fighting for the rights of aggrieved individuals and to do so with the same ferocity that he brought to his former role as a Queens County, New York, prosecutor. During his years with the district attorney’s office, Mr. Yampolsky routinely conducted long-term investigations and engaged in complex legal actions — just as he does now as a member of the Weitz & Luxenberg Mesothelioma and Asbestos Litigation unit.

Mr. Yampolsky is known as an aggressive litigator who is well able to ensure that our clients’ voices are heard. He is particularly adept at early case assessment, motion practice, interrogation and cross-examination of witnesses, and courtroom trial.

Mr. Yampolsky began the practice of law in 2010, the same year he started working for the Queens County district attorney and the same year he received a juris doctor degree from American University, Washington College of Law. Mr. Yampolsky graduated magna cum laude, with grades high enough to place him in the upper 10 percent of his class. During his time at Washington College of Law, he participated in internships with the Montgomery County, Maryland, Criminal Justice Clinic, the sex-crimes unit of the New York County District Attorney’s Office, and the Intelligence Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the District of Columbia. At Washington College of Law, Mr. Yampolsky also served as publication’s editor for the Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law, was inducted to the prestigious Order of the Coif, and received the Newman Prize for Trial Advocacy.

Mr. Yampolsky enrolled at Washington College of Law after completing one year of study at Widener University School of Law. In 2005, he graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh, having majored in justice administration and minored in legal studies. Mr. Yampolsky was repeatedly named to the Dean’s List, held the post of president of the campus chapter of the American Criminal Justice Association, and participated in a study abroad program that took him to Sydney, Australia for instruction at the University of New South Wales.
