Ms. Weiner has taken a leadership role in numerous large class actions and multi-district litigations in cases across the country.

A contributor to her professional community, Ms. Weiner serves on the Executive Board for Public Justice, co-chairs the Mass Tort and Class Action practice group for the Minnesota Chapter of the Federal Bar Association and serves on the Minnesota Bar Association Food & Drug Law Council.
