Mr. Weisenburger is hands down very experienced, and knowledgeable. Without a doubt I was confident in his abilities. I was so thankful that he represented me. He has a very calm demeanor, and took the time to review every detail of my case. He was able to answer any questions that I had and was very thorough when reviewing all the evidence, and case facts. I was treated with respect and I felt he truly cared about my situation. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case and I will always be greatful for his work and assistance.

Also, just a side note, his staff was exceptionally quick with getting back to me when I had questions or concerns. Thank you again!



Get Legal Help Immediately

Most people charged with a criminal offense usually have no real understanding of criminal law and the justice system. Often they feel hopeless and just want to “get it over with.” Consequently, they don’t consult with a criminal defense lawyer to evaluate their options.

In reality, very few criminal cases are open-and-shut. A savvy criminal defense attorney will be alert to the many options available to help you avoid the harsh consequences of a criminal conviction.

The first court appearance (arraignment) in a criminal case takes place before you know it. It leaves you little time for obtaining legal advice from a qualified criminal defense attorney.

Acting fast is crucial. You need to take action now.
