“THE BEST PRACTICING APPLICANT’S WORKERS’ COMPENSATION ATTORNEY”
Until my retirement from active practice in June 2014, I represented insurance carriers and employers for 39 years before the Industrial Commission of Arizona. During those 39 years I had the occasion to litigate many cases with Stephen Weiss as the applicant’s attorney. The litigation process is always adversarial in nature but with Steve it was never an unpleasant one. He always presented his case adhering to the highest levels of professionalism and ethical conduct. He was always well prepared for the hearings and was respectful in his questioning of all witnesses while at the same time continuing to advance the interests of his clients.
If a disagreement rose between Steve and myself, we were always able to amicably resolve it without having to resort to the intervention of the Administrative Law judge. On a number of occasions when Steve applied for recertification as a Certified Worker’s Compensation specialist, I was asked to fill out a reference sheet on Steve. I always gave Steve the highest grades for professionalism and ethical conduct and consistently in the comment section indicated that, in my opinion, Steve was the best practicing applicant’s Workers’ Compensation attorney. Steve’s clients were always well served by him and will continue to be well served by him in the future.
In this day of consumer “problems” it’s easy to sit at the keyboard and compose a letter of complaint. Believe me, this is not one of them.
I want to take this time to thank you and everyone on your staff for the total professional service I received.
From our first meeting when you agreed to take our case, you set a game plan that your office didn’t waver from at any time.
Whenever I called with a question or concern it was answered in a timely manner, whether or not I liked the answer. Every time I met with you or one of your associates, for a deposition or in front of a judge, they not only would calm my nerves, but would handle the meeting with total professionalism.
Again I want to thank you and your associates, especially “Only Penrod” for their knowledge and understanding of the law and how they took the time to explain it to me.
“THANK YOU FOR RECOMMENDING STEVE WEISS”
I’m certain that you will recall a conversation that we had about a year ago. At that time, I was recovering from hip replacement surgery, the need for which I was certain was caused by trauma to my hip incurred in a trip and fall incident at work. When I asked you for a referral to “the best workmen’s comp plaintiff attorney in town,” you said without hesitation, “Steve Weiss is your man.”
I’m delighted to tell you that you were right! On July 2nd, Judge Eaton found my case to be credible and awarded her decision in my favor.
I want to thank you for referring me to Steve. I admire him for his calm, soft-spoken manner; the incredible recall he had concerning the facts of my case; and his timely honed, probing questions asked in direct and cross-examination. He was brilliant.
“TRUTHFUL AND UPFRONT”
Many, many thanks for your constant support to me through all these years. You were always very truthful and upfront with me about any situations concerning my Disability claim.
I know life will be fair to you, because you are so to others in your life. I wish you and yours health, happiness and God’s blessings.
Thank you for all the assistance and kindness you gave us through the years. We never would have made it without your help. Noah thought very highly of you.
When I got hurt at work, it was a very difficult time for me. Thank goodness that you were there to represent me in times of need.
Every thing has been going well and I really appreciate having you and your staff always available
I would like to say how much I appreciate the professionalism that you and your staff have given to my case and me. You have always been responsive when I had questions and needed answers. I am so grateful for all of your time and consideration.
I think very highly of you and gladly recommend you to anyone needing a lawyer. I know you are the best one I could have chosen. I wish you much success in the future.
“YOU MADE MY LIFE LOOK POSITIVE AGAIN”
The State had turned down my disability request several times. After talking to my medical doctors about my case, I was directed to you.
After you took on my case, I was awarded all my benefits plus my wheelchair, medication and other health aids. Mr. Weiss, you made my life look positive again.
You and your staff’s kindness and extra effort will always remain in my heart and mind throughout my life. Another plus of your character is showing you heart for animals as well as us humans.
Thanks again for keeping your clients’ peace of mind first on your list.
“YOU TOOK ALL THE FEAR FROM ME”
I want to take this time to tell you how much I appreciate all that you have done for me in my case against Arizona’s Workmans’ Comp. My case was a high profile case and the State was more than willing to work with me without reservations. That was until they decided I was all better. They had decided to cancel my case without notification. Until this time there was no reason why I needed an attorney.
I am very glad that you were assigned to my case. I had no idea what all this was going to bring, or how the whole judicial system worked. With you it seemed that you had taken all that fear from me and let me know what could and could not happen. You took the time to keep me in the loop and help me make some good decisions on what to do and only gave me good advice on the case. Even though many people think that you can only be physically injured there are those wounds that are deeper than that. People forget that is part of injuries and you did not let the State forget it.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
“PATIENCE AND PROFESSIONALISM”
I wanted to thank you all for all your efforts in successfully resolving my case. Your patience and professionalism were much appreciated. If there is anything I can do in the future, to assist you, please don’t hesitate to ask. I want to wish you continued success in the future.
“DEDICATED TO THE CONCERNS AND NEEDS OF HIS CLIENTS”
Steve Weiss is one of Arizona’s premier workers’ compensation attorneys. He has represented both claimants and employers, but is known primarily as an attorney for injured workers. They have long enjoyed the assistance of an attorney whose experience, skill, and professionalism are unsurpassed. As a workers’ comp specialist who represents defendants, I have defended employers and carriers against claims brought by Mr. Weiss’s clients on dozens of occasions over the years. He has never been less than completely prepared and dedicated to the concerns and needs of his clients. The Arizona workers’ comp community has long benefitted from his outstanding leadership and advocacy.
It is a pleasure working with you, not just for the excellent work, but, well, you are a good person and it is pleasure to work with a good person.

“IT SEEMED ALL HAD BEEN LOST”
I would like to take the time to thank you and your staff for everything that has been done for me, and my case.
It seemed all had been lost, and all had gone wrong with my case. I was just about ready to give up all hope of ever getting things back on track. Then I came to meet you, and you agreed to take my case. I’m so glad you did because since then my case has been reopened, and so much has turned around for me. I’m starting to feel like the person I was before this unfortunate injury occurred.
What is most important to me is that you and your superb staff have always treated me with the utmost respect and dignity no matter what. It’s such a wonderful feeling to once again be known by my name instead of just a claim number.
“CONCERNED ABOUT EVERY DETAIL”
I am glad I chose you to handle my workers’ comp case. I remember when I spoke with you for the first time on the phone to see if I would like you to represent me, it only took a few minutes to decide in favor of you. You were very serious and detailed and that is what I wanted. Throughout my case you were professional, on time, prepared and concerned about every detail. And you are just a very nice person with a lot of integrity!
“YOU MADE MY LIFE LOOK POSITIVE AGAIN”
Over 20 years ago the State of Arizona turned down my disability request several times. After you took my case, I was awarded all my benefits plus wheelchair, medication and other health aids. You made my life look positive again.
The kindness and professionalism you and your staff showed over the years will always remain with me. Thank you for keeping my peace of mind first on your list.
“STEVE WAS WITH ME THE WHOLE WAY”
I highly encourage you to call Mr. Stephen Weiss as your personal injury attorney. I have had numerous phone calls, meetings, email exchanges, as well as hearings (depositions). My case was difficult and took a long time to settle but Steve was with me the whole way and I can’t say enough good things about him.
Steve did his due diligence and I was awarded accordingly. I am very grateful for his experience, tenacity, and forethought.
