Stephen A. Weisbrod
Steve Weisbrod helps clients win recoveries for their losses. An experienced trial lawyer who has tried cases in seven states and the District of Columbia, Steve litigates in courtrooms across the country to obtain payments from insurance companies, product makers, service providers, fund managers, and other defendants in cases involving fraud, negligence, breach of contract, and other wrongdoing. Steve’s clients include major public companies, private equity firms, hedge funds, banks, food and consumer product companies, property owners, post-bankruptcy trusts, government entities, and many individuals.
In insurance cases, Steve represents policyholders exclusively. He never represents insurers.
Steve handles claims for many types of damage and loss. For example:
Steve has tried more than 30 cases. His clients at trial have included a defendant accused of shooting a rival gang member and attempting to kill a police officer (the defendant was acquitted), a trustee seeking to rescind a secondary market life insurance transaction (the transaction was rescinded), and a tire company seeking payments from Certain Underwriters at Lloyd’s of London, which had accused Steve’s client of submitting a fraudulent coverage claim (minutes before Steve was scheduled to cross-examine the insurer’s claims handler, the insurer agreed to pay over 90% of the claim and formally retracted all fraud accusations against Steve’s client).
Steve’s pro bono work has included:
Steve clerked for Judge James B. Moran of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois and Justice Alan B. Handler of the New Jersey Supreme Court.
