Nicholas Wise


Cases don’t only turn on facts — it also helps to have the right courtroom strategies and tactics. At Weitz & Luxenberg, we think clients deserve the strongest, most aggressive representation possible, and we’re always ready to provide it.

Nicholas Wise is a senior trial attorney who handles negligence cases stemming from defective-product design or manufacture, excessive use of police force, motor-vehicle accidents, construction accidents and violations of labor law, among others.

In addition to litigating claims, Mr. Wise also is the Negligence group’s attorney chiefly responsible for exploring alternatives to a potentially protracted legal fight, such as dispute mediation and negotiated settlement (in one illustrative accord, he obtained $1.5 million for a 47-year-old construction worker who fell from elevated train tracks along a New York City expressway).

Prior to joining Weitz & Luxenberg, Mr. Wise worked as a criminal defense attorney and was involved in several high-profile matters. He has been admitted to practice law in New York state since 1992, and is admitted to represent clients in the Southern and Eastern New York jurisdictions of U.S. District Court.

British-born Mr. Wise obtained a juris doctor degree in 1991 from Hofstra University School of Law and, earlier, in 1988, a Bachelor of Arts degree from Long Island University. His current memberships in the New York State Trial Lawyers Assn. and New York County Lawyers Assn. help ensure that he stays on the cutting-edge of practice.
