Vincent Cheng is Counsel in the Mass Tort/Class Action group at Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer, P.A. Mr. Cheng focuses his practice on asbestos litigation, personal injury, and products liability. For over a decade, he has represented injured victims who have suffered from different exposures to asbestos in their lifetime, which lead to serious health problems, including mesothelioma and lung cancer.
Mr. Cheng’s accumulated knowledge and extensive litigation experience have allowed him to successfully litigate numerous asbestos-related personal injury cases in both state and federal courts. He has secured significant victories for his clients and their families and has helped them obtain the justice they deserved. Over the years, Mr. Cheng has collectively obtained total recoveries in excess of $10 million for his clients. Results achieved in prior matters are not meant to be a guarantee of success as the facts and legal circumstances vary from matter to matter.
Mr. Cheng is passionate about the representation he provides to his clients. “In my role as an attorney I speak on behalf of people involved in personal injury, products liability and asbestos litigation. I offer a quote from a client to help demonstrate that the most rewarding aspect of what I do is achieving deserved closure, and the ensuing peace of mind, for each of my clients and their families. My practice focuses on representing injured victims – some who simply went to work to do their jobs and provide for their families, all while unknowingly being harmed by asbestos exposure. Through my accumulated knowledge and litigation experience, it has been my privilege to have successfully helped numerous mesothelioma and lung cancer victims and their families obtain the justice they deserve in state and federal courts. I am emotionally committed to the people I represent; from initial client contact, up through and including trial, I offer careful guidance throughout the ordeal with the compassion, dignity and respect each of my clients warrant.” In 2014, Mr. Cheng was selected in the Lawyers of Color’s Hot List (Eastern Region).
In addition to his asbestos litigation practice, Mr. Cheng is also a member of the firm’s Cannabis Law practice group and has assisted clients with applying for a vertically integrated license to operate medical marijuana alternative treatment centers in New Jersey. His guidance involves handling all aspects of the complex application process, from initial start-up through the actual application filing. Additionally, he has represented entities involved in hemp and cannabidiol (CBD).
Prior to joining Wilentz, Mr. Cheng practiced law in New York City, primarily working on large-scale and complex asbestos claims.
