Laura Covey Laszewski has joined Weitz & Luxenberg’s knowledgeable and committed Mesothelioma and Asbestos Practice Group litigation unit in the firm’s New Jersey office. Like her colleagues, Ms. Laszewski cares deeply about the individual clients she helps.
“Particularly in the case of asbestos and mesothelioma, the relationships we develop with our clients are the center of what we do. Clients are putting their lives in our hands, and we have to do everything we can legally to bring about a fair resolution.
As Ms. Laszewski stresses, “Manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors who exposed people to asbestos counted on that. They knew asbestos would make people sick. They just didn’t care.”
By the time people are diagnosed with mesothelioma or other asbestos diseases, no one can undo the damage. These diseases ravage the body. Mesothelioma is always devastating. There is no cure.
More than 30 years ago, Weitz & Luxenberg was founded specifically to help people who had developed mesothelioma. We were appalled that some companies had grievously harmed so many hard-working Americans and their families.
Before joining Weitz & Luxenberg, Ms. Laszewski worked at a law firm in Pennsylvania. From August 2011 until she joined Weitz & Luxenberg, she represented clients in court and in jury trials. She also represented minors in juvenile court.
In addition, Ms. Laszewski negotiated pleas on behalf of clients in both misdemeanor and felony cases. To perform her responsibilities successfully, she strove to maintain an excellent professional relationship with judges, court personnel, district attorneys, and opposing counsel.
Ms. Laszewski said her passions outside of work include traveling, both internationally and nationally, and watching sports. She particularly enjoys watching Yankees baseball games and Penn State football games.
Ms. Laszewski was named a Main Line Today Top Lawyer – Criminal Law in 2017 and was recognized as a National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys Top 10 Under 40 for 2016-2017. She was also named a National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 – Criminal Defense attorney in 2016.
