Jason Weinstein joined Weitz & Luxenberg’s skilled and talented Appellate Unit in 2017. He is providing considerable assistance to our Mesothelioma and Asbestos litigation team and turning his talents to our Defective Drugs and Devices litigation unit cases as well as our Personal Injury and Malpractice litigation unit.
When Weitz & Luxenberg secures a victory in court against an asbestos manufacturing company, that asbestos company may decide to appeal the decision. Our firm’s appellate attorneys, including Mr. Weinstein, work to ensure that these decisions are upheld.
Particularly in cases involving asbestos exposure and mesothelioma, Weitz & Luxenberg attorneys feel strongly that asbestos manufacturing companies be held accountable for their unconscionable actions. In this country, we have known for decades asbestos is a carcinogen capable of causing lethal and debilitating lung diseases, including the aggressive cancer mesothelioma.
When an asbestos manufacturer exposes people to asbestos, that company is acting not only irresponsibly but also inexcusably. At Weitz & Luxenberg, we intend to hold these types of companies accountable by ensuring victims of asbestos exposure receive appropriate compensation.
The Weitz & Luxenberg Appellate attorneys, including Mr. Weinstein, are committed to justice for people harmed through the negligent, sometimes reprehensible, actions of others. As Mr. Weinstein says, “Our end goal is that victims will receive the compensation they deserve. Ideally, irresponsible companies will agree to settle out of court and acknowledge the harm they’ve caused. That’s what we’re aiming for.”
Already, Mr. Weinstein has proven he is up to the task of navigating the legal intricacies involved with appellate casework, crafting legal documents essential to our litigations. We feel privileged Mr. Weinstein decided to join our division of Appellate attorneys at this juncture in his career.
From 2010 to 2013, Mr. Weinstein served as an associate at The Hoffinger Firm, PLLC, formerly Hoffinger Stern & Ross, LLP, in New York City. One of his primary responsibilities was working as part of a team representing clients in federal and state court in complex criminal and civil litigation matters. He also spent considerable time researching and drafting legal documents.
From August 2006 until May 2010, Mr. Weinstein worked for the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office in Mineola, New York, where he was charged with representing the District Attorney’s office in postconviction and other appellate litigation.
Mr. Weinstein earned his juris doctorate in 2006 from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York, where he served as a member of the initial group of Public Service Scholars, and was a member of the Moot Court Honor Society. In addition, Mr. Weinstein worked as a legal writing teaching assistant and served as a research assistant for then-Dean David Rudenstine.
