Once again, W&L attorneys from across the country have been selected as 2022 Super Lawyers and Rising Stars by Super Lawyers, a nationally recognized rating service. We are pleased to announce W&L attorneys from Michigan, New Jersey, and California, are listed among attorneys nationwide as some of the best in the business. These are in addition to our New York based attorneys named Super Lawyers and Rising Stars.
Super Lawyers recognizes just 5% or fewer attorneys in each state. And the Rising Stars category includes just 2.5% or fewer attorneys for each state.
“Being included in the Super Lawyers listings is an exceptional honor,” states W&L co-founder Perry Weitz. “At Weitz & Luxenberg, we are fortunate to work with such talented attorneys,” he adds.
“Both seasoned and up-and-coming attorneys at our firm have committed themselves to helping our clients across the country,” Mr. Weitz continues. “Without their dedication and tenacity, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.”
Super Lawyers Selects the Best of the Best
“It is a privilege to have our attorneys named to these lists of Super Lawyers and Rising Stars,” says W&L co-founder Arthur Luxenberg. Both he and Mr. Weitz have themselves been frequently named to the Super Lawyer and Best Lawyer lists.
Mr. Luxenberg points out, “I am fortunate to work with a number of talented and dedicated attorneys who every day commit themselves to helping our clients achieve the best possible verdicts and settlements. Their efforts dramatically change and improve our clients’ lives.”
“We are proud to recognize our attorneys’ continuing efforts to help our clients secure the justice they deserve. They do that by holding offending corporations accountable,” Mr. Luxenberg affirms. “Our clients deserve the best representation possible.”
