Wesierski & Zurek LLP was founded on November 1, 1987, by Christopher P. Wesierski and Ronald Zurek. They both worked together at two prior firms as associates, then junior partners, and eventually partners. Chris Wesierski served on the executive committee and was one of the managing partners at that previous firm. The firm has been rated A-V (the highest ranking possible) by the prestigious Martindale-Hubbell organization since its inception.
Initially, Wesierski & Zurek LLP was comprised of five attorneys. The firm slowly grew and eventually reached its present size. The firm now has attorneys who handle almost any type of litigation. The firm’s attorneys are known for their tenacity and thoroughness while at the same time being mindful of maintaining control over the costs of litigation.
Currently, the firm has six members of ABOTA (American Board Of Trial Advocates), which is an organization that requires that an attorney be asked to join and then approved for membership only if the attorney has tried 20 civil cases to verdict. Those attorneys are Christopher P. Wesierski, Ronald Zurek, Thomas G. Wianecki, Terence P. Carney, Thomas B. Cummings, and Lisa McMains. Chris Wesierski, Tom Wianecki, and Ron Zurek are also approved as Advocates of ABOTA, which means that they have each tried at least fifty cases to verdict and each has over 100 trials now to verdict. Thomas B. Cummings is approved as a Diplomate, which means that he has tried at least one hundred cases to verdict. The firm is quite proud to offer this depth of trial background and experience to its clients. Christopher Weiserski was named ABOTA Trial Lawyer of the year in 2018.
