Eric Wiesner joined Weinberg, Roger & Rosenfeld in 2018.  His work includes litigating wage and hour and other employment class and individual actions, as well as representing unions and workers in administrative hearings and arbitrations, and advising union leaders.

Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Wiesner spent three years in Mexico working for human rights organizations that advocate on behalf of workers, independent unions, and marginalized communities in that country, and that seek to hold multi-national corporations accountable for their actions throughout Latin America.  During his time in Mexico, Mr. Wiesner played a key role in developing a cross-border project aimed at curbing rampant abuses in the process of recruiting Mexican workers for temporary employment in the U.S. (H-2A and H-2B visa programs).  He also worked with rural communities impacted by large mining projects to file complaints with administrative agencies and courts in the U.S. and Canada.

After graduating magna cum laude from the University of San Francisco, where he was Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review, Mr. Wiesner served as law clerk to the Hon. James Ware of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.  He later spent four years as an associate in the litigation department of a prominent global law firm where he worked on matters in a wide range of substantive areas, including securities, antitrust, and consumer class actions.

Mr. Wiesner first became interested in issues of social and economic justice working as a community organizer in Montgomery County, Maryland, where he helped spearhead a successful multi-year campaign to pass one of the first suburban county-wide living wage ordinances in the U.S.   He also served in several roles for the AFL-CIO Western Regional Office based in San Francisco.

Mr. Wiesner is fully proficient in spoken and written Spanish.
