San Francisco Bay Area Injury Claims Attorney Joe Nierenberg

Joe Nierenberg grew up in New York City and graduated in 1979 from the State University of New York at Binghamton. Joe prepared for law school by majoring in history and studying political science. Joe moved to California to study law at the University of San Diego, where he obtained his law degree in 1982.

While in law school, Joe Nierenberg became passionate about representing those injured by the wrongdoing of others.

“I wanted to provide injured victims and their families with quality legal representation because I knew what they were up against fighting big insurance companies and corporations that retained experienced counsel to help them avoid paying compensation to accident victims.”
Weber & Nierenberg co-founder Joe Nierenberg

Right after law school, Joe moved to San Francisco and began his career working for a prominent San Francisco firm representing injured persons against insurance companies and public entities. In 1984, through good fortune, he met Steve Weber, who shared his vision of providing clients with compassionate, personalized legal service. They formed a law firm and Mr. Nierenberg has been protecting the rights of the injured and battle insurance companies, manufacturers and public entities every day. Mr. Weber retired in 2019.

Mr. Nierenberg is admitted to practice before all federal and state courts in California. He has extensive jury trial experience throughout northern California courts.

Mr.Joseph Nierenberg currently serves as a judicial arbitrator for unlimited jurisdiction of the San Francisco courts and belongs to the State Bar of California and Bar Association of San Francisco. He is also a proud member of the American Association for Justice, Consumer Attorneys of California, San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association and Alameda Contra Costa Trial Lawyers Association — all dedicated to championing the rights of the injured.
