In my role as Executive Director of Municipal Joint Insurance Funds, I find Dave to be an excellent partner and a consummate professional. I rely on his legal counsel regularly in areas of litigation management, contract review, risk assessment, and organizational management. Dave successfully defended many cases against municipal government involving use of premises, condition of public property, recreational facilities, and police activities. His knowledge of the law, especially a respects the New Jersey Tort Claims Act and Federal Civil Rights legislation have proven invaluable in managing the attorneys assigned to defend cases against our member municipalities. In addition, Dave’s relentless efforts to obtain recoveries from parties that damage municipal property or injure our employees has led to millions in recoveries that would not otherwise have been realized.

We have used David DeWeese for many different business-related litigation issues in the past and are always very happy with his knowledge and attention to our issues. We would highly recommend David to handle any legal issues you may encounter.

I just wanted to thank Mr. DeWeese for doing such a wonderful job handling my son’s case. He walked out of court yesterday with his case dismissed because of the firm’s diligence and effort, and I can never express how thankful I am. I know if he had not had Mr. DeWeeses’ representation, it most certainly would have been a different outcome. All through his case you got him the best results we could have hoped for, and I will be forever grateful.

Thank you so much for giving him a chance to put all this behind him and to move on.


The search for an attorney is usually done in response to some unforeseen tragic event. Individuals often experience feelings of vulnerability and desperation as well as shame when finding themselves in a predicament that would warrant such help.

When I found myself in need of an attorney I was given referrals for the very best legal representation for my particular case. After speaking at length with the attorneys and their staff, I hired Attorney DeWeese not only for his experience and professionalism, but also for his integrity, compassion and ability to instill feelings of hope. David’s staff treated me with respect and compassion and I have since referred clients to his office.

While preparing for my case, David went above and beyond my expectations and became more than just our attorney. He has become a trusted friend and we will forever be grateful to this stranger who was brought into our lives at our lowest point, yet treated us as if we were the most important people he knew.

It has been both my pleasure and an honor to have known and worked with David DeWeese for the last two decades. David is confident, professional, knowledgeable, diligent and truthful. He has excellent legal acuity and understanding of complex issues. I consider David one of my “go to” people when seeking advice, on both a professional and personal level. He is truly a person who stands behind his word, is caring and delivers as promised. David has a great personal presence and a demeanor that engenders reassurance. These traits have led to his significant success in the Joint Insurance Funds in which he acts as the Fund Solicitor and the respect and admiration of the JIF members. In this role, David is accessible, creative and forward-thinking. He has a “get it done” philosophy and team-orientation that produces unparalleled, positive results.

Alice Lihou, Vice President,

I would like to thank The DeWeese Law Firm for their high level of professionalism and service. We are appreciative of the agreement that was reached in this matter!

My spouse is Active Duty military, and I’m a disabled veteran. I was facing a difficult situation which could have had a horrible effect on my family’s well being. Dave went to bat for us. The results were tremendous. Additionally, he didn’t nickel and dime us.


Thanks very much for your help in the legal matter with our son which was handled in court yesterday.
All went smoothly, and we appreciate being able to arrange such efficient representation from out of state.
Please relay our thanks to Scott, to whom our son is very grateful. He has learned a lot from this experience.

Best Wishes
