Greta Wiessner became a lawyer to fight for justice. As an Associate in the Civil Rights and Mass Tort practice groups, Greta advocates for those who have been injured or have had their rights violated by police, the prison system, pharmaceutical companies, and more. Greta joined Robins Kaplan following two federal clerkships, one on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and the other on the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Clerking honed Greta’s legal research and writing in all areas of federal litigation.
Before clerking, Greta graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. There, she enjoyed representing clients through the Penn Law Immigrant Rights Project, Child Advocacy Clinic, Transnational Legal Clinic, and as a summer law clerk at the Hennepin County Public Defenders. Greta was also a Senior Editor on the Law Review, a research assistant to two of her professors, and won the Keedy Cup, Penn Law’s prestigious Appellate Moot Court competition.
A born litigator, Greta looks forward to zealously advocating for her clients rights and remedying the injustices they have experienced.
