In 1991 Mr. Weisbrod was the co-founding chair of the Birth Trauma Litigation group of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America.


He has lectured to lawyer groups across the U.S., Canada, England and Australia, and has written extensively on medical malpractice and medical product topics. He is recognized nationally and internationally as one of the top plaintiffs’ medical malpractice trial lawyers in the United States.
