Thank you for representing my seven year old daughter against the owner of the German Sheppard dog that attacked her. The money will be used for her college tuition. God Bless You!

My friend told me that [MyPhillyLawyer] was a very reliable company and that they take care of everything. Attorney Dean I. Weitzman was always on top of everything. He was very efficient and he made me really comfortable. I didn't know what to do and how it all works. He was very helpful. I did not have to worry about anything. They did it all very professionally. There were no problems whatsoever.

What impressed me most is that I called him [Dean I. Weitzman] and told him I wanted to come and see him. He said "No, you were in an accident and I will come and see you." He came the next day. We've been friends ever since. I call him if I have a problem, and he calls me back. I tell him you are like my son. I never had to go anywhere on my own. He always said "I will pick you up and take you there." That's what I love about him.

After talking with him [Dean I. Weitzman] on the radio, he gave me some good insights on what could happen next. As a person, he just seemed like he knew you for a long time. He made you feel like he was raised up in your neighborhood. He had someone from his office contact me periodically to let me know what was happening.
