Daniel Wasserberg became a lawyer because he was motivated to assist victims of injustice by fighting corporate entities that value profit over the public’s health and welfare. Over a decade into his practice, Daniel remains firmly focused on helping people. Mr. Wasserberg’s litigation practice is driven by three guiding concerns: consumer protection, environmental advocacy, and most importantly: accountability of companies that harm people for the sake of their own bottom line. Nothing gives Daniel greater satisfaction than fighting for those who can’t fight for themselves, or who have personally selected him to advocate their cause.
Daniel Wasserberg is a 2013 & 2014 New York metropolitan area "Super Lawyer Rising Star.” This recognition is given to a limited number of attorneys who are recognized by their peers and adversaries for doing an excellent job representing their clients’ best interests in their respective field. Daniel believes that it is especially important to spend quality time with his clients so that he can get to know them and their individual needs: “Every client is different and if you don’t know them, then you don’t know what you’re fighting for.”
Prior to forming the law firm of Meirowitz & Wasserberg, Daniel was an asbestos attorney specializing in mesothelioma cases at a prominent New York plaintiff’s firm from 2010 until 2015. Prior to 2010, Mr. Wasserberg was with the Houston trial law firm of Williams Kherkher, where he served as counsel to individuals and families harmed by asbestos exposure, occupational accidents and defective drugs. Working as a litigator for two of the nation’s most organized, respected, and successful plaintiff’s trial law firms (in very different parts of the country) prepared Daniel to take on any adversary, including the biggest corporations in the world.
