About Me

MICHAEL L. WEISS, Esq., a member of the New Jersey and Pennsylvania Bars since 1981, achieved his first jury verdict in excess of a million dollars in 1990.


 


Mr. Weiss is certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy as a Civil Trial Advocate. He also achieved certification from the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Civil Trial Attorney in 1986, the first year in which he was eligible, and was re certified in 1994, 2000, and 2007.


 


Based on selection by polling other attorneys, Mr. Weiss has been named a "Super Lawyer" in Plaintiff's Medical Malpractice by New Jersey magazine in every year since polling began in 2005. He is also listed in Best Lawyers, the oldest peer review publication of the legal profession, under the specialty of Medical Malpractice. Best Lawyers compiles lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting peer review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.


 


"Insurance carriers defending medical malpractice cases typically spare no expense and use only very skilled and experienced attorneys. Prosecuting these cases successfully involves a huge investment of time, effort and energy. I'm very fortunate to have an incredible support team behind me each time I walk into a courtroom," Mr. Weiss said recently. "By the end of a trial, regardless of the outcome, it feels good to know I've been in there fighting for someone who needed a strong advocate, typically someone who has suffered the death of a loved one, or a serious, permanent disability." Mr. Weiss obtained a B.S. in Psychology from Syracuse University, and a Juris Doctor degree from Villanova Law School .


Pursuing a medical malpractice claim is often complicated, difficult, and expensive. We believe that in order to maintain the expertise needed to be consistently successful, we must focus 100% of our professional time on handling medical malpractice cases only. We have therefore chosen to completely limit our legal practice to representing people who have been severely injured or killed as a result of medical neglect.


 



 


It’s important that we know our medicine. That’s why in addition to an extensive network of medical experts to choose from, we have a physician on staff. Obtaining justice should not depend on whether a person has the financial resources to bring a lawsuit. We therefore investigate claims at our own expense, and our clients are not responsible for costs or legal fees unless we recover money for them.
