Upon graduating from the University of Miami School of Law in 2002, Mr. Weber joined a mid-size corporate defense firm in Miami and honed his skills as a litigator, defending cases for large insurance companies and self-insured businesses for over a decade. He has litigated a wide variety of claims, including premises liability, food poisoning, automobile liability, workers’ compensation and personal injury protection, among others. Mr. Weber has also handled criminal and contract matters over the years; more recently, Mr. Weber’s practice focused on defending first party homeowners insurance actions–from the catastrophic claims of hurricane seasons to the current everyday needs of his carrier clients.
A native of the coastal Carolinas—born in Charleston, SC and raised in Wilmington, NC—Mr. Weber is a proud graduate of East Carolina University. At ECU, he majored in television production and business administration before deciding to try his hand in law. While earning a Juris Doctorate from UM, Mr. Weber was actively involved in the Student Bar Association and the Phi Alpha Delta legal fraternity. As a second-year law student, he sharpened his legal writing skills as an intern at the Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina, concentrating on criminal appellate work–gaining keen insight into the operation of state government.
A fifteen year resident of Miami Beach, Mr. Weber loves all things involving sports, the water and the outdoors. He is a member of The Florida Bar, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, the Dade County Bar Association and the American Nicaraguan Foundation.
Mr. Weber now applies his broad experience to Hayman-Woodward Corp as general counsel for the company, identifying and addressing its in-house legal needs.
