Mark S. Weinstein has joined Weitz & Luxenberg’s skilled Mesothelioma and Asbestos litigation unit. We are proud to welcome him to our national team of specialized attorneys, who have won more than $8.5 billion in verdicts and settlements for victims of asbestos exposure.
Mr. Weinstein has found himself in good company at our firm, where like-minded attorneys are fighting for the very same things every day: safe and healthy homes, communities, businesses, schools, and workplaces. We have dedicated ourselves to holding negligent and reckless corporations accountable.
As Mr. Weinstein points out, this fact, however, did not stop some corporations from exposing workers and consumers to asbestos for decades, never warning them of its presence or dangers, or advising them to wear protective clothing and respirators. They knew that they were putting people’s health at risk, but they wanted to make as much money as possible.
Since joining the firm, Mr. Weinstein says he feels right at home with his fellow attorneys. Like his colleagues, Weinstein is committed to and passionate about helping others, particularly those who have worked so hard for so long only to develop devastating, preventable, illnesses such as mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of lung cancer directly linked to asbestos. And, sadly, the executives of some companies involved with the use and production of asbestos chose not to safeguard the public from these toxic exposures.
Prior to joining our firm, Mr. Weinstein worked for Locks Law Firm in Philadelphia, not far from where he grew up. His focus was clear from the beginning: human health and the environment, including targeting the use and production of toxins and carcinogens, such as asbestos and benzene.
In July 2017, Mr. Weinstein became part of The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40 for Civil Plaintiffs’ Attorneys in New Jersey. This professional organization is made up of the top trial lawyers from each state or region. Membership in this prestigious group is by invitation only to those attorneys who demonstrate and exemplify superior qualifications, litigation results, and leadership as a young lawyer.
He earned his juris doctorate from the University of Wisconsin Law School, cum laude, where he received the Sonnet Schmidt Edmonds Award in Energy Law. He also served as president of the university’s Environmental Law Society, as well as managing editor of the Wisconsin International Law Journal.
