About Me

I started my legal career in 1970 as an assistant Corporation Counsel for the City of NY in the Tort Division, where I defended the City in personal injury cases. This experience provided me with a strong working knowledge of muncipal negligence law. In 1972 I became an associate and later a partner in the law firm of Delson &


Gorden, which represented many labor unions. I represented union members who were injured in contruction accident cases. In 1983 I withdrew from this firm and started my own practice, which was limited to personal injury cases, including medical malpractice, product liability, construction accidents, premises accidents, accidents caused by defective highways and sidewalks, and motor vehicles.


In 1986 my wife Doreen Weisfuse and I formed a partnership to practice law together currently known as Weisfuse & Weisfuse LLP. Our son Jason Weisfuse is our associate.


We are currently co counsel representing retired NFL football players who suffered brain injury in their cases against the NFL and helmut manufacturers.


I have served as an arbitrator in the in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, have volunteered to represent cancer victims in claims against insurance companies denying coverage, and have volunteered to represent victims of the 9/11 attack.


I have been found to be Preeminent in personal injury litigation by Martindale Hubbell, one of the oldest attorney rating services, and I have been elected to Super Lawyers.

    I worked with Mr. Weisfuse on a complicated medical malpractice matter. He was lead counsel. There were many twists and turns in the litigation and he was able to adapt and address every issue in a professional and competent matter. I was very satisfied with his knowledgeable service and will continue referring clients to him in the future.
