Mr. Weisberg has won numerous criminal trials and has achieved hung juries
resulting in dismissals in over 80% of those cases. Speaking about how
his background in civil and criminal litigation aids him now in his work
as a family law attorney, Mr. Weisberg has this to say:
The problem with family law cases is that there is usually no clear winner.
Victories are all relative. With my past litigation experience, I have
an upper hand when it comes to using the rules of evidence and civil procedure
in family law cases. Where most family law attorneys have never done a
complex jury trial (there are no jury trials in family law), I have been
put to the test of successfully convincing a full jury of at least 12
people to see it my clients' way, and I have been doing this for nearly
a decade. In family law, I only have the task of convincing one judge
to see it my client's way. Early in my career, I had the opportunity
to handle many complex matters in the civil and criminal arena, and this
paved the way for my ability to handle the complexities, both financial
and emotional, that are involved in a family law case.
Mr. Weisberg selectively handles over 50 complex and high net worth divorce
cases per year and has handled over 300 child custody cases since 2005.
