Serving New Jersey - Pennsylvania - Nationwide*
No one could have predicted that when Mike Weiss and Bob Paarz battled each other in a courtroom in several medical malpractice trials during the 1990's, the seeds of a future partnership were being sown. Both attorneys were certified civil trial attorneys, and handled medical malpractice claims exclusively. But while Mr. Weiss focused exclusively on helping victims of medical malpractice, Mr. Paarz defended the rights of doctors. Although the two attorneys were frequent adversaries, aggressively representing opposing parties, mutual respect developed.
A change of heart after a brief hiatus
After an extremely successful legal career devoted to defending physicians, Mr. Paarz decided something was missing from his life and chose to stop practicing law in 2001. Two years later, he decided to renew his career, no longer representing the medical community and instead choosing to help patients achieve justice. After the two attorneys teamed up to represent several patients, they decided to join forces, with Mr. Paarz joining Weiss & Paarz to create Weiss & Paarz.
A limited practice to bring you expertise
Pursuing a medical malpractice claim is often complicated, difficult, and expensive. Weiss & Paarz believes that in order to maintain the expertise needed to be consistently successful, we must focus 100% of our professional time on handling medical malpractice cases only. We have therefore chosen to completely limit our legal practice to representing patients who have been severely injured or killed as a result of medical neglect.
Knowing our medicine
It's important that we know our medicine. That's why in addition to an extensive network of medical experts to choose from, we have a physician on staff. All prospective cases go through a careful selection process and we will only pursue a case if our medical experts are convinced that medical mistakes caused severe harm to a patient.
A commitment to excellence
Our goal is simple: provide the highest quality representation we are capable of in order to help deserving victims of medical malpractice achieve justice.
*The firm handles cases in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. For cases outside those states, Weiss & Paarz works with local attorneys in the state where the medical care took place, at no additional cost to the client.
