The Cherry Hill, New Jersey office of Weitz & Luxenberg was opened by attorney Jerry Kristal and an assistant in 1997. The office was needed because Weitz & Luxenberg was getting many new asbestos cases on behalf of New Jersey and Pennsylvania residents, as well as pharmaceutical product liability cases, that had to be litigated in the courts in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Since 1997, the asbestos litigation has expanded greatly and generated excellent results for the clients, including millions of dollars in recovery. We now have cases on behalf of asbestos clients from across the country, including cases filed in Delaware. Our clients were exposed to asbestos while serving in the U.S. Navy; working on construction sites; making a living as carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and mechanics.
Our office now has more than 40 employees. In 2016, we moved to a larger suite in a modern office park to accommodate our growth. We are located about one mile from the Cherry Hill mall.
