Mr. Weinstein advocates for the rights of employees and minorities, and he has a track record of success in doing so.
In 2003, he convinced the PA Supreme Court to impose a duty of care on companies conducting employee drug tests. In 2006, he won a $500,000 jury verdict against the postal service on behalf of a terminated employee. In 2007, he won a sexual harassment case after a two-week jury trial which led to a $599,000 settlement. In August 2008, an apartment complex of more than 1,000 minority and elderly residents came to him after their polling place was moved for partisan political reasons. Marc got them their polling place back in time for the presidential election -- after a fierce battle in federal court. In October 2010, he won another jury verdict against the postal service - this time on behalf of an employee who was subjected to illegal retaliation. Most recently, in September 2013, he won a jury verdict on behalf of an illegally fired employee that included $750,000 for emotional distress.
For 14 years, Marc served proudly on the Board of Trustees for the Green Tree School in Philadelphia, which educates children with developmental disabilities. In 2002, the Bucks County NAACP honored him with the Rev. H.M. Satterfield award for his efforts to eradicate social injustice.
