Marc Reibman is a 1981 graduate of the Boston University School of Law. He began his legal career with the legendary New York firm of Costello & Shea where he handled negligence, medical malpractice, product liability and admiralty cases. In 1986 Mr. Reibman started his own firm representing the victims of negligence and people who were falsely arrested or brutalized by the police. Mr. Reibman has represented the victims of many different kinds of negligence including catastrophic motor vehicle accidents, construction site accidents, slip, trip, and fall accidents, medical malpractice, and defective products. Mr. Reibman takes pride in obtaining maximum jury verdicts or settlements for his clients. He has tried numerous cases where the jury returned verdicts in excess of a million dollars. He has the largest verdict in New York State for a short period of pain and suffering. ($10,500,000.00 for two and a half minutes of suffering in an elevator death case). In many cases defendants have settled with Mr. Reibman for millions of dollars without going to trial. Mr. Reibman handles all phases of cases personally, from the initial client interview to depositions, court appearances and trials. Mr. Reibman is most proud of obtaining jury verdicts or settlements for clients who were turned away by other firms because their case seemed too complicated or did not seem important. Mr. Reibman has a particular expertise in cases that require scientific or engineering analysis to understand the mechanism of injury. As a result of his years of success a very large percentage of the firm's new clients are referred by satisfied former clients.
Steven Weiner graduated the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in 1990 and joined the large “Wall Street” firm of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan. Before Mr. Weiner became a lawyer he graduated New York University Medical School and was a licensed practicing physician. Mr. Weiner was at Stroock for three years during which time he worked on complex product liability litigation and other general practice litigation matters. Mr. Weiner left Stroock because he wanted to help individual people instead of large corporations. Mr. Weiner joined with Mr. Reibman in 1993. Together they have established a successful partnership that builds on each other's strengths. Because of his medical background, Mr. Weiner is able to quickly read and analyze voluminous medical records -- often finding significant evidence of malpractice or injury that would be difficult for an attorney without a medical background to find. Mr. Weiner represents clients at all stages of litigation -- from initial case evaluation and intake, to jury trial or settlement. He is particularly proud of his work in the area of civil rights and police brutality litigation. Mr. Weiner has represented many people who have been unlawfully incarcerated, physically abused, or harassed by the police or other law enforcement authorities. Satisfied clients continue to refer new clients who have been injured or who have had their civil rights violated.
