Great experience, highly recommended!
I highly recommend Andrew Weitz. He worked very hard for the best outcome for my case, and kept me posted about what was happening throughout the process. He is also very professional, friendly and communicative. He was very easy to reach by phone or email, and was always quick to respond to any questions I had along the way. Most importantly, he is honest, kind and straight-forward, with a keen ability to explain the complexity of the law system in a way that is fully understandable for someone is not in the industry. He genuinely cares about the work he does, and it shows. My case was somewhat complicated, yet he handled it with unwavering effort, and I am very happy with the result. I highly recommend him for your legal needs, and I would not hesitate to use his services again!

Terrific Lawyer
I hired Andrew Weitz as my lawyer after I was hit by a car. Mr. Weitz was very punctual and kept me informed, and I never had any trouble getting in touch with him. I was very happy with the quick resolution of my case, and highly reccomend Mr. Weitz and his firm.

Great Attorney, Very Helpful
Mr. Weitz represented me in connection with a work related incident. He did not charge me anything to answer my questions, and always returned my calls quickly. He was very helpful, knowledgeable, and attentative to my specific concerns. Satisified with his service, I have since sent both my father and my coworker to Mr. Weitz after they were involved in car accidents, and they were both pleased with his representation and the outcome of their cases. I would definitely reccomend Mr. Weitz to anyone who has been injured or needs an attorney.
