Jason M. Weiner has joined Weitz & Luxenberg’s highly motivated Mesothelioma and Asbestos Practice Group litigation unit. Mr. Weiner is thrilled to be working at what he says is one of the “great, premier law firms” dealing with asbestos and mesothelioma litigation.
Companies do not want to take responsibility for their actions. They know what they did is reprehensible, but they are hoping someone else will take the fall.
The truth about asbestos exposure is that disease does not happen overnight. Someone can be exposed to asbestos today and not develop mesothelioma or other asbestos-related diseases for 30, 40, or 50 years, in some cases.
As an experienced litigator, Mr. Weiner was able to negotiate a settlement for a client who worked in a smelting plant and contracted mesothelioma. Mr. Weiner was able to maintain a substantial settlement for that client; a small piece of justice.
Prior to joining Weitz & Luxenberg’s team of asbestos and mesothelioma attorneys, Mr. Weiner was with a law firm in Baltimore, Maryland. While there, he represented clients with asbestos-related diseases, including mesothelioma.
In an earlier position, also in Baltimore, Mr. Weiner managed the firm’s Maryland asbestos docket. He represented clients at hearings, engaged in settlement negotiations, and conducted depositions.
He earned his J.D. from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan, and his B.A. from Elon University in Elon, North Carolina.
