Meet the ‘W’ of KWBR law firm – Mr. Jay M. Wasserman, Attorney at Law. Jay manages all personal injury and wrongful death litigation for the Firm, as that is his scope of expertise. Jay was born and raised in South Florida – a true native of Florida; his passion lies in helping those in need close to home. Mr. Wasserman grew up in a working-class home. Jay’s mother and father worked together to raise him and his brother and sister, with emphasis on the importance of working hard, respecting others, education and integrity. Jay’s parents always made a point to put family first. They made it a daily requirement to sit down as a family each night at the dinner table and share what each had learned that day. Although Jay and his family had little money; Jay’s parents somehow found a way to support him in his educational endeavors. With their love and support, Jay attended Georgetown University for two summers while he was still in high school studying communication, debate, and argumentation. While studying, Jay worked as a busboy; washing dishes to help save for college. Jay attended the University of Chicago and studied economics. He then earned a scholarship and attended the University of Miami School of Law. Like the Firm’s co-founder, and Jay’s personal best friend, Steve Katzman, Jay understands the importance of loyalty and commitment. Jay is happily married to his wife Debbie of 31 years and has three daughters. Jay makes a point to treat all of his colleagues as family. He values spending time with his family and knows the time and dedication that it takes to be a good husband and father. Jay stresses the need for his employees to take quality time off attend family affairs. Children’s school events, dance recitals, celebrate special anniversaries, and birthdays with their families.
Many KWBR colleagues have young children, and Jay encourages them to work hard; both for the Firm and their families. Many of Jay’s staff have been with him for nearly two decades. Family is key to Jay, as well as the Firm and its staff. This dedication also extends to the Firm’s clients. Before founding the KWBR Fort Lauderdale law firm with Steve Katzman; Jay previously worked with the prestigious Firm of Weil, Gotshal, and Manges – an international law firm. Jay then formed his law firm nearly thirty years ago to focus solely on his injury practice. He is truly an expert in handling Personal Injury and Wrongful Death claims.
Prior to co-founding the Firm with Jay Wasserman, Steve was a partner in Tew Cardenas, where he was the managing partner of the Palm Beach County offices and was a shareholder co-managing the litigation department of Greenberg Traurig’s West Palm Beach, Florida office. Before that Steve practiced law with Cadwalader Wickersham and Taft.
Steve moved to Florida when he was four years old. After 50 years, he considers himself a native. Loyalty and commitment are very important to him, as evidenced by his decision to co-found the firm with his best friend since high school, Jay Wasserman. Steve has been married to his wife, Sharon, since 1986, and has two sons, Adam and Jason.
The other lawyers in the Firm have each practiced law with Steve for many years, as have many members of the Firm’s staff. This level of loyalty and personal commitment is the foundation upon which Steve practices law and defines his dedication to each client and their case.
