Weinberg & Weinberg LLP was founded by Steven J. Weinberg and Michael Weinberg in 2001. The firm is, in many ways, a merger of its principals' backgrounds and experiences. Steven Weinberg's entire career has been dedicated to the representation of people injured or killed as a result of someone else's negligence or wrongful conduct. Michael Weinberg started out his career at a prominent Houston trial firm, where he primarily represented defendants in a wide variety of civil litigation matters, having later practiced with one of the largest firms in Texas, where he primarily represented clients in a variety of commercial litigation matters.

Drawing on Steven Weinberg's experience in prosecuting personal injury, catastrophic injury and death cases, and Michael Weinberg's experience in general civil litigation matters, the firm was formed, combining the intimacy and hands-on responsiveness of a small firm with the depth and range of experience and ability more typically found in firms several times our size. Thus, while the core of the firm's practice lies in the prosecution and trial of personal injury, catastrophic injury and wrongful death disputes, the firm also represents individuals and businesses, as plaintiffs and defendants, in a wide variety of commercial litigation and other civil litigation matters.

We have the talent and resources to handle virtually any type of case, yet we are small enough to give each and every client the personal and attention they deserve. Our clients do not spend hours on the telephone talking to a battery of paralegals or "legal assistants." Our clients talk to us, the lawyers. In our brief history, we have developed a reputation for aggressively and tenaciously representing our clients' interests in an efficient, cost effective manner, whether it's a simple automobile accident or slip and fall case, a serious automobile or industrial accident involving serious injury or death, or a complex business dispute.
