Weitz & Luxenberg, P.C. is now airing two :30 commercials on the asbestos-related cancer featuring acclaimed actor Daniel J. Travanti of “Hill Street Blues” television fame.

The firm is known for spearheading asbestos cases, among others, winning a historic consolidated trial in 1991 involving men who had worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s. Weitz & Luxenberg had 36 clients in that case and won $75 million. Another case yielded a $64.65 million award for four asbestos plaintiffs in 1996 (NY, docket # 10893/95), and, in 2002, the firm won a $53 million verdict in New York for a brake mechanic stricken by mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). The firm has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the backbone of the victorious Allied war effort in the World War II.

Given the seriousness of the subject matter, careful consideration was given to choosing who would appear in the commercials, said managing partner Arthur M. Luxenberg. “We were very selective in choosing our spokesperson,” Luxenberg explained. “We were looking for someone who could speak to our client base and also project the stature of our firm. Daniel J. Travanti was ideal because he was someone widely known and who could also embody the kind of authority and gravitas that this issue demands.”

The hard-hitting spots, set in a courtroom, highlight the firm’s success and dedication to achieving impressive financial results for its clients. The ads seek to alert those who have been harmed by asbestos that though they may have been exposed to the carcinogen decades ago, they may still be eligible to seek legal compensation.

Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer of the lining of the lung or the lining of the abdominal cavity. Most people who develop mesothelioma have worked on jobs where they inhaled asbestos particles. Workers toiled innocently, perilously unaware that they were dealing with a deadly substance. Mesothelioma ruined their health, destroying their lives and shattering families. Weitz & Luxenberg represents numerous individuals who have serious injuries related to asbestos. These injuries include mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis (a noncancerous, chronic lung ailment), and other cancers, such as those of the larynx and kidney.
