Attorney Phillip Weinberg’s client was facing two serious gross misdemeanor cases and an initial indication we were looking at substantial jail time, one case with three counts (Indecent Exposure, Resisting Arrest and Obstructing Law Enforcement Officer) and one case for Assault 4 DV. Mr. Weinberg was able to show the true, unstable nature of the alleged victim, as well as her lack of truthfulness, and obtained a 2-year continuance, with no jail, after which, with alcohol treatment, the three count case for Indecent Exposure, Resisting Arrest and Obstructing Law Enforcement Officer will be dismissed, and in the other case, Phillip Weinberg got the Assault 4 DV case reduced to Disorderly Conduct and have the DV label (referred to often as the “DV tag”) removed, with only 2 days jail less credit for time served, resulting in no additional jail time.

- I have more than 20 years of experience defending my clients' rights. I handle all cases personally from start to finish, ensuring that each of my clients gains the full benefit of my many years of experience. At my firm, there are no associates right out of law school showing up in court knowing practically nothing about you or your case, I know my way around the courts and how they work. Throughout my career, I have learned that the best approach is not always the most aggressive one, though sometimes there is no other choice. My first goal in every case is the dismissal of my client's charge(s). In many situations, however, I have found that negotiation offers better opportunities for success.When you work with me your case will never be passed off to a paralegal or a less-experienced associate. I am a solo practitioner and always have been.
