Very Understanding & Straight to the point
I found Dana through AVVO. Not only is Dana a great lawyer, she’s straight to the point and upfront on her opinion and doesn’t beat around the bush. Dana and her team have been great. Every time I reached out to Dana, whether it be email or phone, if Dana couldn’t call me back, one of her amazing staff members did. She has been on top of every detail in my case and no matter the challenges are set against us due to my past medical history, Dana is fighting hard to prove my past medical history shouldn’t make it ok for those who caused my injuries to not pay for their negligence. She’s a woman who stands strong for her clients.

My experience with Dana weitz
I was involved in a slip & fall & reached out to Dana weitz for representation. Dana fought to get me the settlement that you thought that I deserved. She always took my phone call and got back to me in a timely matter. She was sympathetic to my needs and a pleasure to deal with. I got a very nice settlement thanks to Dana. I would highly recommend her and her firm!!

Very thorough & attentive!
My accident case isn’t exactly cut & dry. There are many intricate details & things that may or may not apply that heavily impacted the value on my case. From the moment I hired Schatz & Steinberg firm & my case was given to Dana Weitz, this very traumatic & difficult time has been a breeze! First I’d like to say that I received support on a very personal level which was a great help. Anytime that I had a problem & sometimes it wasn’t case related…They were there to help! More importantly, Dana has been so meticulous going over every fine detail, recognizing issues that could’ve been detrimental & went above and beyond IMMEDIATELY & fixing them! Not only that, my phone calls & emails are always answered fairly quickly, and I’m not treated just as a client, but as a friend! This firm has helped, supported, and guided me through a time where I was confused, injured, upset & not knowing where to turn. They’ve held my hand the entire way! I am more than satisfied with the outcome, and would highly recommend Dana to anyone who has found themselves in a position where you’re injured and need an attorney. Rest assured she will take very good care of you!

Dana had a relentless drive for the success of our case
From the moment I called Dana Weitz I knew my case was in excellent, knowledgeable and competent hands. Dana’s detective work from following leads to keeping us updated on twists and turns throughout the process was appreciated greatly. She is a constant professional. She diligently worked on our case and accommodated our circumstances without hesitation. The outcome of our case demonstrated her talent, her relentless drive for success and her acceptance of nothing less than what was deserved. Her education not only in the field of law but also in her knowledge of my physical condition and limitations caused by the accident was astonishing. She is a top notch professional and I would recommend her to any of my family members or friends.

Exceptional Attorney who I highly recommend
Dana took over my law suit case when another attorney left the firm. I was immediately impressed with how thorough she was in getting up to speed on the facts. She reviewed every aspect of the case with me and explained how the process would proceed and the timing of the sequence of events. This was not the same as I had expereinced with the previous attorney. Dana is very responsive, returning phone calls or emails including nights and weekends. She kept my advised frequently and was always available if I had any concerns or questions. I am a very detailed person who needed to understand how the case would be handled and what to expect. She treated me with respect and I felt as though I was am important client. Dana has an engaging personalality that puts you at ease and is truly your champion. She was empathetic about my injuries and recovery. I was grateful that she became my lawyer and the outcome of my case was very positive. I highly recommend Dana. If you hire her, you'll be glad you did.

Great Attorney
I was recommended to Dana Klayman by an attorney who told me she was "very good". As I have been in the legal field for over 20 years, I know attorneys know the difference between the "good" lawyers and the mediocre. He said he wouldn't want to come up against her in court. That told me all I needed to know for my particular situation. What I found in my experience with Attorney Weitz is that she is: knowledgeable, efficient, effective, fair, responsive and a fighter who goes above and beyond for her clients. Attorney Weitz turned my impossible situation into a favorable outcome. I realize that every case cannot be a winner but, you will know that Attorney Weitz has done everything in her power to win on behalf of her client. I highly recommend her for your legal needs. You won't be disappointed.

An Amazing Attorney
Ms. Weitz has been my attorney for the past several years. Not only is Dana professional and responsive, her confidence and knowledge of personal injury law always leave me feeling at ease that my case is in good hands. I really appreciate how Ms. Weitz takes the time to explain everything to me in "normal language" as opposed to assuming I fully understand the law. She really relates to her clients and their individual situation.
