WE CAN HELP YOU WITH YOUR 9/11 CLAIM! A PROVEN RECORD OF IMPROVING CLIENTS’ LIVES. FREE CASE EVALUATION

If you were exposed to toxic dust from the World Trade Center, you may be eligible for free healthcare and financial compensation. We can help you with your 9/11 claim.

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.

Highly recommend
I contacted several lawyers regarding my accident. Marty was the first one who was more concerned about my injury than any possible settlement. This was very important to me. He guided me through no-fault insurance in order to find a doctor, and he did it knowing there might not be a lot of money in the end. I know how factory-like insurance can be. When you're hurt that's a really awful place to be. But Marty fixed the problems and I got better.

Experienced Tenacious Litigator
I hired Mr. Weisfuse after 3 other large law firms turned my medical malpractice case as they felt my case had no merit. Mr. Weisfuse and his staff left no stone unturned in researching and litigating my case. I can not over emphasize the amount of work that goes into a medical malprcatice case - it is an ENORMOUS amount of work. He was absolutely tireless and decisive throughout the handling of my case. My case took 6 years to settle from the date of malpractice to the day the jury came back with a GUILTY verdict. We went to a full 3 week jury trial with multiple witnesses and MANY twists and turns. Mr. Weisfuse demonstrated such patience and resolve throughout the entire process. He never flinches in the face of a courtroom situation - good or bad. He is as steady as a rock. His litigation and negotiations skills are second to none. I'm truly grateful for the fact that I was able to retain the services of Mr. Weisfuse and his hardworking and caring staff. I would recommend Mr Weisfuse very highly.

A Fantastic Lawyer
Mr. Weisfuse handled a very complicated medical malpractice case for me. He met with many obstacles along the way because there were multiple defendants, but he never let them stand in his way . He always kept me informed of what was happening. He never made me feel like I was just a file in his caseload. Rather, he always showed extreme consideration, compassion, understanding and flexibility and I knew he truly cared about me as a person. I never wavered in my confidence in him and his ability to settle my case in a just manner. His knowledge of the law showed in every conversation we had. When we were involved in mediating my lawsuit, he did not give up , even though the mediations were tedious. The professional mediator said to us, when Mr. Weisfuse was meeting the defendants' attorneys, " I don't where you found this lawyer, but he is the best I have seen." He was so right! I would recommend him highly to anyone .

Personal injury Attorney | Apr 10
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"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!"
