Where we stand
The attorneys and staff of Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck are sickened by the senseless deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others whose deaths were caused by systemic racism, discrimination, and injustice in our country.
We denounce this racism, discrimination, and injustice, as well as the continued violence by people and public institutions against the Black community and other minorities, that continues to plague the United States.
We stand in solidarity with our fellow Black Americans who have historically been the victims of pervasive racism, and whose Constitutional rights have been frequently violated.
We support our fellow Americans’ efforts to peacefully protest this country’s broken law enforcement and justice systems.
And we share with the Black community a hope that their voices, joined by their supporters’ voices (including ours), will be heard and bring about the change that is needed to once and for all eradicate the systemic racism, discrimination, injustice, and violence that has victimized Black Americans for more than three centuries.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said that “Without justice, there can be no peace. He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetuate it.” We are committed to working to bring about meaningful changes to society that are necessary to put an end to this country’s shameful history of institutional racism, discrimination, injustice, and violence against Black communities and other people of color.
Co-founder and senior shareholder of our law firm, Philadelphia medical malpractice attorney Kenneth M. Rothweiler began his career as a legal clerk for the Superior Court of Pennsylvania. Dedicated to complex personal injury litigation, he has tried more than 100 jury trials. These cases resulted in some of the largest verdicts in Pennsylvania.
