Attorney Dan Weisenburger, Founder and Principal at Weisenburger Law Offices.

Weisenburger Law Offices, LLC, was founded in 2000 by Attorney Dan J. Weisenburger, one of only a handful of Board Certified Criminal Trial Specialists in Ohio (NBTA). Our main office is in Ravenna, OH, a few minutes away from the Portage County courthouse. We service clients from Akron and Summit County from our Stow office.

What sets us apart? All lawyers proclaim experience, knowledge, and dedication. We go beyond that. Our attorneys are different from general practitioners who occasionally dabble in fifty various fields of law: they focus on just a couple of them, and, as a result, are most proficient at it. They also have an extensive knowledge of the court systems in Ravenna and Kent (Portage County), Stow, Akron, and Barberton (Summit County), and the Cleveland area.

We handle criminal defense, which encompasses feloniesmisdemeanors,DUI, juvenile delinquency. Our criminal defense clients often experience drastic changes in their lives. Due to a strong demand, we expanded into family law,  which encompasses divorcedissolutioncustody and child support, and  finally estate planningwills, trusts, and probate.

The attorneys in our firm have litigated jury trials involving murder cases, rape, vehicular homicide, burglary and most other criminal charges, and handled difficult contested divorce or custody cases in front of many judges. We relish the opportunity but also possess the wisdom to avoid such confrontation if better solutions are appropriate. They are very familiar with the court systems in Akron, Barberton, Stow, Ravenna and Kent.

Our collective experience in these two fields of law spans over fifty years and thousands of cases. We live in the trenches. We are in Ravenna, Kent, Stow, Akron, Barberton and many other courthouses nearly every single day. The crisis you are in may seem unique to you but our firm rarely encounters a problem we haven’t solved before. Whether your goal is to negotiate the best possible resolution or litigate your case to conclusion, we can help.

WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU

In a criminal or DUI case, our Akron DUI attorneys’ first goal is to explore the possibility of getting the DUI charges dismissed. If that isn’t feasible, the next goal is to get you the best possible resolution to minimize the consequences and the penalties. Then it is your decision whether to resolve the case through negotiation or have your attorney forcefully battle it out in a trial. Whether your case needs to be handled in Portage County, in Ravenna or Kent courts, or in Summit County courts in Stow, Akron or Barberton, we are here to help you get the best possible outcome.

In a family law case such as divorcedissolutionalimonychild custody or child support, it is important for our divorce attorneys to determine how to best deal with your opponent and come up with a solution that will protect you and provide you with long-term benefits. We will represent you effectively throughout all stages of your case, protecting your interests during tough negotiations or in a trial. Attorney Heather Johnston services clients in Portage County, Summit County and Cuyahoga County.

WillsTrustsEstate Planning and Probate require more than knowledge from your attorney: it requires a personalized approach to help you get your assets and property in order, and give you the peace of mind you are looking for. If necessary, your attorney will develop a powerful strategy to address inheritance-related disputes that deal with a wide variety of issues that require litigation, in Portage County courts from our Ravenna office, Summit County courts  from our Stow office, and finally in Cuyahoga and Geauga Counties from our Chagrin Falls office.

Our attorneys and staff members achieve results through thorough investigation, comprehensive preparation, personal attention and hard work. Once we are retained, we immediately begin by gathering information and evidence: witness statements, narratives, police reports, tests, call records, audio tapes, videotapes, photographs and other physical evidence pertaining to alleged criminal or DUI charges, affidavits, depositions, documentation and disclosure statements in family, estate planning and probate law.

With offices in Ravenna, Stow, and Chagrin Falls, our firm services clients in Portage County, Summit County, Cuyahoga County, Geauga County and other courts upon examination of every case.
