James J. Wenzel is a recent addition to Weitz & Luxenberg’s dedicated and experienced Mesothelioma and Asbestos Practice Group litigation unit in the firm’s New Jersey office. Mr. Wenzel is excited to “join such an exceptional team of attorneys who work directly on behalf of clients every day,” he says.
Weitz & Luxenberg feels equally privileged that Mr. Wenzel joined our asbestos team. He brings over 15 years of solid litigation experience to the firm, including a strong background in investigative legal research, and client and witness preparation.
“I believe my experience in taking depositions and preparing witnesses will come in handy as I move forward with my asbestos and mesothelioma litigation at Weitz & Luxenberg,” Mr. Wenzel points out. “One-on-one contact with our clients is really the foundation for the legal process.
“At this point in my career, I’m looking forward to the challenges of helping clients directly. I want to work with people who have a vested interest in the outcome. Most importantly, I want to assist them in receiving the compensation and resolution they deserve.”
For over 15 years, Mr. Wenzel has built upon and honed his skills as an attorney. He believes his knowledge and experience working with clients, taking depositions, and investigating legal matters are among the assets he brings to Weitz & Luxenberg’s mesothelioma and asbestos team of attorneys.
Immediately prior to joining Weitz & Luxenberg, Mr. Wenzel worked in the Office of the Westchester County Attorney in White Plains, New York. From September 2002 to January 2016, he was an assistant county attorney in the litigation bureau.
In addition, Mr. Wenzel responded to complaints concerning working conditions before the New York State Department of Labor, Public Employee Safety and Health Bureau.
