Dr. Robert Weitzel
In November 2002, we represented Dr. Robert Weitzel. The State had accused Dr. Weitzel of criminally causing the death of patients in his care. The case was profiled by "60 Minutes" in March 2002. After a three-week trial, including testimony from renowned experts in palliative and end of life care, Dr. Weitzel was acquitted of all charges.
