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.

  • Michael J Palumbo

    In a nutshell, Marty is an AWESOME lawyer. Marty does not just do run of the mill general liability cases. Marty does high end, difficult, and technically challenging medical malpractice, products liability, and labor law construction tort cases. Very few lawyers and law firms have the competency to handle those types of cases. Whenever my law firm is contacted for an initial consultation by someone who has those types of cases we just refer them to Marty. He has gotten great recoveries for the clients we referred him and we have never had a complaint. If you believe that you have been harmed through someone else's negligence give Marty a call today!
