    Default Howard Weitzman Has Passed Away





    Much love and respect to Howard Weitzman, for a life well lived. What a stalwart he has been for Michael Jackson, the MJ Estate and all of his other clients. Thoughts and prayers are with his family - thinking of their sorrow today.

    Default Howard Weitzman has died

    "...rhythms that sound out the architecture of my DNA also governs the movement of the stars. The same music governs the rhythm of the seasons, the pulse of our heartbeats, the migration of birds, the ebb and flow of ocean tides, the cycles of growth, evolution and dissolution. It's music, it's rhythm. My goal in life is to give to the world what I was lucky to receive: the ecstasy of the divine union through my music and my dance. It's my purpose, it's what I'm here for."
    Michael Jackson

    This is the condolence message from John Branca and the Estate team:

    “We are heartbroken at the passing of our friend and colleague Howard Weitzman. Howard has always been a relentless fighter for righteous causes and ferociously fought for Michael during his lifetime and after. He has been an integral part of the Estate team. Howard brought more than just his skills as a brilliant lawyer to the team; he had the uncanny ability to find ways to resolve issues outside of the courtroom – a skill not all litigators possess. And one of the truly amazing things about Howard was how he could make anyone he met – whether they were on the same side as him or opposing him – feel like a respected colleague and his friend. It is his friendship we will miss most of all.”



    Listed at the top of Mr. Weitzman's achievements in representative matters:

    The representation of The Estate of Michael Jackson in numerous litigation matters, including a lawsuit against Lloyds of London seeking to recover proceeds from a cancellation insurance policy covering Michael Jackson’s planned “This Is It” concert tour and disputes arising out of the exploitation of Mr. Jackson’s intellectual property. Mr. Weitzman provides strategic support for the Estate on an ongoing basis with respect to a variety of legal and business issues, including the administration of the Estate, the handling of creditors’ claims and the restructuring of debt obligations.

    Molly was Jon Steinsapir's daughter. Jon Steinsapir is a lawyer who worked under or beside Mr Weitzman, as a colleague in the Estate's legal team. There are good lawyers who are still a part of Mr Weitzman's firm, who can carry on the work that he was doing for the Estate. Chances are that he had stepped down from his duties and handed over to younger associates already last year or this year, considering he was 81 years old and suffering from cancer.

    Prince posted a lovely comment on his Instagram:

    I’m deeply saddened to hear of the passing of long time Estate attorney Howard Weitzman. Through the years I spoke with Howard various times over the phone and had a few in person interactions. He was a force to be reckoned with and always such a good hearted individual and just had an all around positive vibe. He was always supportive of @heallosangelesfdn and @kingssonproductions and would try to help in anyway he could. To his family, friends and loved ones I’d like to offer my sincerest condolences and my utmost gratitude and respect for a man who has given my fathers legacy as well as my siblings and I so much time and effort in his service. Thank you Howard may you Rest In Peace. My thoughts are with your family and loved ones❤️❤️
