Many personal injury and civil litigation lawyers go into their cases seeking a quick a resolution. At The Weitz Firm, LLC, we do not believe this approach is necessarily in the clients’ best interest.
Eric H. Weitz, our lead attorney, is a seasoned trial lawyer in Philadelphia, having litigated hundreds of cases across the country, including in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, since 1992. Having become battle-tested in the rigors of the courtroom, he believes that trial is the best tool for the average citizen or business owner to get justice for themselves in the United States, especially when they have been harmed by a powerful corporation.
Beyond obtaining compensation for his clients’ damages, Mr. Weitz uses litigation as a tool for change, especially when it comes to health care. Medical malpractice remains the third most common cause of death in the U.S. One of the most effective ways to bring this issue to the public’s attention and try to change it is to hold negligent hospitals and physicians publicly accountable for preventable harm. Building public awareness leads to momentum toward reducing medical malpractice. Protecting victims by holding wrongdoers accountable is a major reason Mr. Weitz practices law.
It also benefits our clients. Mr. Weitz’s reputation as a trial attorney is well-known. Knowing that he is always willing to take a case to trial makes defendants more likely to consider a good settlement offer. And if negotiations fail, clients have the benefit of Eric’s decades of litigation experience. His skill in the courtroom will give you the best possible chance of success.
