NJWEC is pleased to honor the outstanding work of Williams Cuker Berezofsky, recognizing the vital assistance the firm has provided to those facing very difficult situations.
Trenton, NJ (PRWEB) December 01, 2015
Williams Cuker Berezofsky was recognized by the New Jersey Work Environment Council (NJWEC) for its work protecting victims in environmental and toxic exposure cases. Led by name partners Mark Cuker, Esther Berezofsky and Gerald Williams, their team of twelve attorneys are nationally renowned for representing clients individually and in class action and mass torts.
Partners Mark Cuker and Gerald Williams accepted the award from NJWEC at the Rutgers University Labor Center for the law firm’s work following the 2012 Paulsboro, New Jersey train derailment and the Toms River cancer cluster.
Cuker vowed to continue to "fight the good fight" for people who find themselves in terrible situations. Williams Cuker Berezofsky has offices in Cherry Hill, New Jersey and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
“Representing people who have gotten cancer is among the most difficult tasks a lawyer can take on, but also among the most gratifying. It’s difficult because there are rich and powerful industries trying to hide the truth. It’s gratifying because we’ve shown that if we work long enough and hard enough, we can bring the truth out. We look forward to continuing to work with NJWEC and its constituents to bring out the truth, and protect people exposed to these toxic substances,” said Cuker.
This was the 13th annual awards dinner for NJWEC. The law firm of Williams Cuker Berezofsky was among five honorees that were selected based on their work to set worker and environmental policy and ensure healthy schools for our children and school staff.
“The board and staff of NJWEC are pleased to honor the outstanding work of Williams Cuker Berezofsky, recognizing the vital assistance the firm has provided to those facing very difficult situations,” said Dan Fatton, Executive Director.
NJWEC is a nonprofit alliance of labor, environmental and community groups that has played a key role in winning and defending landmark state policies for worker and environmental protection. Next year is NJWEC’s 30th anniversary.
Other 2015 honorees included NJWEC’s Founder Rick Engler; John Pajak, President, International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 877 and former NJWEC President; Trenton Healthy Schools Now Coalition; and Diana Crowder, Health Professionals and Allied Employees member and NJWEC/NJEA Healthy Schools Industrial Hygienist.
