About Matthew

Learn Matthew’s areas of practice.

I am a loving husband and father of two boys living outside of Philadelphia in the 'burbs.  We have four pets:  Rio (Russian Tortoise); Buttercup (dwarf bunny); and two cats (Oreo and Cookie).  

I concentrate my practice on financial injury-based litigation, including business disputes, legal malpractice, real estate litigation including mortgage foreclosure, and consumer fraud. Matthew also represents victims of civil rights and employment violations. A peer-acclaimed trial attorney, Matthew also represents individuals (including attorneys) in disciplinary matters.

Having numerous trials as well as having appeared before the United States and Pennsylvania Supreme Courts, I am pleased to wear the moniker:  "a true lawyer's lawyer."  

I am proud to continuously receive referrals and praise from unaffiliated attorneys (even surprisingly from those who were once  opposing counsel) and community leaders. In fact, I also regularly represent attorneys in their personal legal matters.

Excellent Malpractice Attorney
Mr. Weisberg won my case after five other attorneys turned it down because it was to complex for them & they were afraid of the other attorney who I wanted to sue for malpractice.

Provides peace of mind through bold advocacy
I was referred to Mr. Weisberg by an attorney who knows him professionally. He came highly recommended, and I quickly came to see why. I was dealing with what could best be described as vicious bullying and stalking, by someone seeking to infringe on my civil rights and personal safety. Mr. Weisberg and his team acted swiftly: pulling no punches, keeping me fully informed about my options and basically "going to the wall" for me. There are quite literally no words for the peace of mind he provided in his quick and no-nonsense approach. From the initial consult, to the letter he sent to the individual troubling me, to the assurance I continue to have that he and his team "have my back," I am impressed, grateful, and truly feel like Matthew Weisberg is in his clients' corner every step of the way. While I hope I won't have to contact him for further help (!) I am so glad to know that I can.

Did the best job that could be done
I hired Mr. Weisberg for my case. He saw it through all the way to the end. He and his team were very professional, courteous, well-prepared, and right to the point. No one would have done a better job. I highly recommend him. Thank you, Matt and Gary.

Words cannot describe how wonderful and caring Matt and his team are.
I will be forever grateful for the fabulous work on my case that Matt Weisberg and his team did on my behalf. Many a time I felt like I had fallen into a deep hole and was ready to give up. With their constant never ending support, they got justice for me. They helped me get my life back. I will always remember how empowered I felt after I testified and when the case was over (in my favor!). I would give them 10 stars if I could. I have to say it again, I will never in my life forget how they helped me.

Takes an interest and makes changes!
Weisberg Law was the only firm that took an interested in our racial discrimination suit against the local school board. Had it not been for their taking the case, we would not have been able to enforce changes in our school and community to better protect our children.

Diligent Advocate
I have known and worked with Matt Weisberg for over 20 years. I am tremendously impressed with how conscientious he is in aggressively pursuing claims on behalf of his clients. He diligently works to develop his cases, rather than wait the last minute and then do a rush, often inadequate response. When a client retains Matt Weisberg he/she gets a skilled and committed advocate.

Outstanding Attorney
Matthew Weisberg very recently represented me on a discrete legal issue and the representation was highly effective and professional. He was extremely responsive, decisive and knowledgable; he is a truly outstanding attorney. As a fellow attorney in the Pennsylvania legal community, I have referred Mr. Weisberg numerous matters as well, due to his acumen and skill, and will continue to do so.

A Superb Law Firm
A friend referred me to Weisberg Law, specifically Gary Shafkopf, when he felt that I was not being adequately represented by the attorney I had retained. I met with Gary and Matt and was advised that the lawyer I had might have committed legal malpractice. They advised the other attorney of the same and they had me make certain that my rights were being protected. Ultimately, my old attorney referred me to a colleague who will now represent me. I was extremely impressed with Gary Shafkopf and Matt Weisberg, their integrety and excellent advice. They put my needs and my protection ahead of any possible gain on their part. If, in the future, if I have the need for legal representation, I will certainly retain the superb services of Weisberg Law.

Foreclosure assistance
4 years we battled our mortgage company - Matthew won in court which overturned a scheduled foreclosure. Matthew then advised us during the entire modification application and trial period. He and his staff provided sanity when the mortgage company responded with confusion and arrogance. Matthew helped us during a very stressful time. We would recommend Matthew.

civil rights
Matthew Weisberg and his firm came to my rescue when my civil rights were violated and quickly took action for me in federal court. I would highly recommend that you call Matthew Weisberg and his firm if your civil rights have been violated.

A real knowldgable fighter
I hired Matthew about a year ago and he has proven to be a real fighter for my rights and, just as importantly, very knowledgeable in the law.

A WELL VERSED ATTORNEY
Mr. Weisberg has a quick grasp of business problems. His interests seem to lie in getting problems solved and not dragging out the case. He's very professional as is his entire office. Office support is important to any attorney and his ranks high up there. Before retaining Matt, I sought references on him and was quite pleased with the scope and amount of excellent referrals. Best reference I could give is that I would let him represent my Mother.

Attorney for the underdog.
I was extremely satisfied with Mr. Weisberg's knowledge and quick response to my problems. An excellent attorney representing the underdog.

Matthew goes above and beyond expectations - I had a negative stigma about past lawyers I've dealt with, and Matthew changed it
Matthew provides an incredible amount of knowledge and education to clients, and goes above and beyond what is expected. I spoke with a handful of lawyers, seeking a professional opinion on a legal matter that was confusing, and causing me quite a bit of stress. In a 10 minute conversation with Matthew, after being referred to him by a friend, he had given me peace of mind. In the professional and business field, it is difficult to comprehend and understand legal terms, contracts, and employee rights, and Matthew did a phenomenal job of "dumbing down" the terms in order to help me understand my options of my legal matter. I would definitely recommend Matthew for anyone seeking legal counsel for any business law, contract law, employee rights, etc.

Fantastic representation!!!
Matt was the consumate professional and is everything I had hoped for when I embarked on the scary world of litigation. He was able to explain my rights, knew the laws inside and out and more so was able to explain things to me in ways I could understand. He was compassionate but also candid about the possible outcomes. At the end of the day the result he got was more than I could have hoped for and sincerely appreciate his genuine caring.

Someone you can trust!
I highly recommend the services Mr. Weisberg. He was patient and very responsive to my case. I was very impressed with his level of professionalism, and I have recommended him without hesitation to friends and family members.

Negotiations
Helped me with a very tricky negotiation. He fully understood the issues and was able to get me what I needed while the opposition thought they did a great job. Both sides were very happy.
Posted by Lonnie | November 13, 2012
