About Brian

Learn Brian’s areas of practice.

HAVE YOU BEEN HURT ON THE JOB? I AM HERE TO PROVIDE PERSONAL, EXPERT ATTENTION TO EACH OF MY CLIENTS

I have been practicing Workers' Comp law since first becoming an attorney in 1988. My first position was as an Attorney at the Industrial Commission of Arizona.

 

I did defense work for a short time and have been representing claimants since 1990.

I helped build the biggest claimant's firm in Arizona, leaving in April of 2013 to merge my practice as a Partner at Snow, Carpio & Weekley.

 

I have devoted my career to helping injured workers and their families put their lives back together after life altering injuries. I do not represent fakers, malingerers or people trying to " game" the system. I do represent individuals who are being taken advantage of by insurance companies and third party administrators.

 

I am a strong advocate for my clients and very competently handle cases from outset through complex hearings and appeals. I am very fortunate to have a passion for my law practice and the thousands of injured workers I have represented.

The right man for the Job!
After my workers comp case was closed, I knew I needed help with the appeal process. I contacted Brian about my case, He made me feel like everything would be ok. I was always treated like a real person and not just a number in a file. He was right there for me through the whole process, appeals, Dr. appointment, questions...I could never have made it through all the ups and downs without Brian. He was able to get my case reopened and collect all my back benefits from the insurance carrier. I am now getting ready for my surgery, that would never have been possible with out the help of Brian Weekley. I am so grateful for him and all he has done for me and continues to do. He not only became my attorney, he became a friend. I know that when I need him he will be there for me.

My Best Experience With Any Attorney, Ever!
I incurred a serious on the job injury in January, 2000. I tried to wade through the AZ Workers Comp laws myself, but due to the complexity of the system, I soon realized I'd need the help of an attorney. After almost a year, I signed with an associate of a well known firm based in Phoenix. I live in the far west of the state. After working with that attorney for a little over a year, I realized I did not trust him. The system was not being explained to me. His answers were vague. There were too many requests for dollars going out, with not much coming in. I terminated my association with that attorney, and signed with Brian Weekley in November of 2002. With Brian, I got what I wanted and needed, an honest lawyer. Right away, Brian explained how the convoluted system works, and told me, step by step, what would happen next. He answered my questions. He talked until I was satisfied, not until he was tired of talking. Brian always returns my phone calls and emails. He has never asked for extra money. Not in the 11 years of our association have I ever felt rushed, or intimidated, or lied to. That's because he has never done those things to me. Both me and my wife are very happy with his representation. Most of my case is handled through the mail, though we have been to court a few times. A great deal of my day to day issues are handled by his awesome legal assistant. I know, without a doubt, that if his assistant tells me something, then that's exactly what Brian would have told me. Between them, I don't worry about the legal side of my case. I just try to feel better. My injury will be with me for the rest of my life. With Brian's knowledge, and the thorough work of his assistant, all of my medical needs are still being taken care of, despite efforts by the insurance company to terminate that care. I am not trying to blow air up anyone's skirt. I am being honest here. The fact is, Brian has taken care of my Workers Comp case with all the dedication I would have, if I was an attorney handling my own case. I trust him completely. I consider him, and his assistant, friends of mine. In the past, I have been lied to, and thrown under the bus by other lawyers. Brian is not only a great Workers Comp lawyer, he is a really good man. I am totally comfortable with his services. This is exactly what an attorney-client relationship should be. Trust and honor. After 11 years, I am still with Brian. I wouldn't have any other attorney handle my case. Since I've known him, he has changed firms, but he is still my attorney. As long as I have a Workers Comp case in AZ, Brian Weekley will be my attorney. He's a good man and a good attorney. We have watched each other's kids grow up. Brian will always be my lawyer, and my friend. With all sincerity, my name is Dan

Mr. Weekly represented my vessel in a claim against an employer. The outcome of the case was in my favor, and was I provided remedy . Brian handled everything from start to finish, as I never had to leave my house. Highly recommended

Excellent service.
I never envisioned myself giving a review of a law firm. One hears so much negative rhetoric about lawyers. I won’t speak of the law community in general but I will say that I found excellent representation through this law firm and Mr. Weekley in particular. He was very responsive to my questions and addressing my concerns and he made me a component part of the process from beginning to end. He was very approachable and was able to break down every part of the process in such a way that a layman can understand. I can’t speak highly enough of the firm, Mr Brian Weekley and his support staff. I would recommend him highly to anyone requiring legal representation.

Highly recommend
I don't think there's enough admiration or respect I could put into words to express just how thankful I am for Mr. Weekly.... Being injured on the job is never easy, but when the workers comp insurance company decides that your mental and physical health hold no importance, and you are left mentally and physically broken, but told you can return to work, well that would leave anyone shaken... 18.5 years as a Correctional Officer, just to be left broken because of my career.... Mr. Weekly has gotten me the medical care I should have been afforded in the begin. Mr. Weekly is a very educated lawyer, and ranked highly amongst his peers. He shows empathy and compassion for his clients, but keeps it realistic. He is a hard working, dedicated, capable lawyer. His experience and knowledge handling worker's Comp claims is invaluable to my recovery. I would recommend 10 out of 10 times securing Mr. Weekly's vast knowledge and resources if you have been personally injured on the job. He will fight to get you what you should have already been given, and rest assured he will do everything in his power to make the wrong, right! I have so much appreciation and admiration for Mr. Weekly!

Someone you can trust completely
I was injured at work, and without Brian Weekly, I would have been lost. Workmans Comp and the company I worked for was accusing me of everything. My first meeting with him, he said don't worry. He was truly my defender, always there for me, and believed in me. Thanks Brian for being there in a dark moment of my life.

Literally Amazing
Brain has been helping me with my case for the last for years, I feel bad because from the beginning he said he will only take me on as a client if there is an issue and I haven't had an issue, whenever I wasn't sure what to do I called him and he told me what to do. So like I said i feel bad because he has been helping me but hasn't been paid for helping me for the last four years. But if there is an issue or if I know someone that needs a lawyer I always refer them to Brian. Really I thank you Brian for all the help you have no idea.... #honestlawyer=Brianweekley

Excellent communication!
It is still early in the process and there has not been much to do as we wait for a response. Before I met Brian I had no idea who to turn to all I knew is I needed help badly. I contacted Brian through Avvo and he responded immediately. He reviewed my situation for a few days and contacted me and took my case. Brian has been very nice and informative. I feel relieved and fortunate to have Brian as my attorney. His high reviews are well deserved.

Brian Weekley is the attorney you need to represent you
I would recommend Brian for handling any workmen's compensation claim. He is very knowledgeable about the complex set of workmen's compensation laws in our state of Az. He answers every question you have, and you know he really cares for you as a person. He always returns your phone calls as soon as possible and tells you the truth about each issue. I am very happy that Brian is my attorney and how he is handling my case.

Recommendation for a great attorney
I had interviewed with several attorneys before deciding Brian was the best, in my initial interview, he was not only knowledgeable of cases similar to mine - he was retrieving information as well as creating a log of my case on his PC - as we discussed all the options that I would have to cover. Trying to find the right attorney is difficult at best when you have no contacts to help, I feel I was very fortunate in finding Mr. Weekley and his services. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs his service.

Brian Weekly has been a God send for my husband. He is professional and outstanding at his job. We appreciate very much!!!!!!
From the consultation upto this day Mr. Weekly has been a great help. He explains each process to the fullest so that you understand each step. He is very trustworthy and responsive to our needs. He is very knowledgeable about the Workman Compensation process and kept us very informed at each step. Every question I asked he had an answer for and I was always satisfied with his responses. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a Workman's Compensation Lawyer .... he will get the job done and represent you to best of his abilities. Very pleased beyond words !!!

Absolutely Amazing!
I asked this question for my husband and he went to meet with Brian. He came home and said that Brian was honest, friendly, sincere, very knowledgeable and was more than helpful addressing my husbands questions/concerns. It is amazing that Brian spoke with my husband for NO COST at all. Yup, you heard it right, NO COST. It is so wonderful that there are people out there who truly care and who are willing to offer their professional advice at not cost. Thank you Brian for all of the service you provide to everyone out there.

Brian Weekley
I was recommended to Brian by my physical therapist after workmans comp became increasingly more and more difficult to deal with. The day after I hired Brian I had no more issues getting my appointments and he has been there to answer every question I have ever had. I would highly recommend him.

Would NOT recommend
What a HORRIBLE experience. DO NOT use this lawyer. Not only did he stop fighting for me after he was retained and getting a portion of my checks, but he switched me to a different lawyer in the middle of my case. They did not tell me when the hearings were so I couldn’t even be apart of my own case (after I told them I wanted to). Then when my new lawyer quit the firm, I was put back with the Mr. Weekly and not even told about it. I received an email a few days later saying I lost the case (I am an injured front line Covid nurse who’s now unable to work). When I asked to appeal the decision, my lawyer withdrew as my attorney. He promised to fight for me. Initially he said, "as a nurse you take care of everyone else, now let me take care of you." He did not even try. He got his money, hook, line, and sinker, and went on his way. Very unprofessional, heartless, non caring, & disorganized. Please, please find better representation!

Response from Brian Weekley December 6, 2022
With 34 years practicing at and before the Industrial Commission of Arizona, I can tell you that cases are won and lost overwhelmingly on the strength of the supporting medical evidence. The injured worker has the burden of proof, so their evidence must be substantial in order to meet this burden. My response to this former client is the following. We took the case, we took it through hearings ( both myself and my associate, whom I worked with for the hearings that he handled) and presented the supporting evidence in the best light possible. We did not stop " fighting for" the client. Clients typically do not attend further hearings and in fact I never recommend it. The losing Decision came in after the associate left our firm and I informed the client. I explained that appeals on resolved medical conflicts do not bear fruit and are an exercise in futility. When a client insists on moving forward, our only recourse is to withdraw as attorney so that they can proceed on their own or with other counsel. I believe that we have an upset ex-client, which I understand. The ALJ resolved the underlying medical conflict against her. I hope that she can find peace with the ICA Decision and move on with her life. As in all cases, we did our very best to represent her.
