Mr. Weisberg spent months putting together what is called a mitigation packet. This is a packet of information gathered to show the prosecutor and judge that the client is otherwise a good man. Mr. Weisberg presented this packet and met…

The Trusted Advocate You Need By Your Side from Beginning to End

A Strong Defense No Matter What Charge You’re Facing in Chicago

At what point do you want to reach out to Andrew M. Weisberg? As soon as possible after you learn you are under investigation or immediately after you are arrested or charged. The police and prosecutor are not going to hold off on their investigation until you hire an attorney, and those early hours can often prove to be some of the most important.

How can Mr. Weisberg help?

By making sure that your rights are respected. Most people only have a cursory understanding of their rights when dealing with law enforcement officials, and they know next to nothing about proper police procedure. When you decide to work with Andrew Weisberg, he will ensure your rights are always respected and that law enforcement officials stick to the letter of the law when dealing with you.

By preventing you from saying or doing anything to harm your case. You likely know from countless TV shows and movies that “anything you say can and will be used against you.” Unfortunately, people often forget this in the stress of being arrested or interrogated by the police. As your lawyer, Mr. Weisberg can advise you on how to speak to police and even act as your voice to prevent you from further incriminating yourself.

By collecting helpful evidence in a timely fashion. In criminal cases, there may be all kinds of evidence that can help your case. Certain types of evidence must be gathered quickly or it may disappear or otherwise deteriorate and become unusable in your defense. Andrew M. Weisberg is well-versed in the proper methods of collecting all kinds of evidence and how best to present it to strengthen your case.

By tracking down witnesses. Perhaps you have an alibi witness that can prove you were not actually at the scene of the crime. Or there were people close to where the incident happened who have accounts that differ from the police and support your innocence. Or there are family or friends that can speak to your outstanding character. Mr. Weisberg has experience locating witnesses and convincing them to testify.

By enlisting expert testimony. In certain types of cases, experts can be brought in to offer testimony designed to bolster your defense. Andrew M. Weisberg has worked with countless experts in a variety of fields and may be able to utilize them in your defense if the case calls for it.

Ultimately, Mr. Weisberg’s job is not to prove your innocence, but rather raise doubts about your guilt by picking apart the arguments of the prosecution. All of these things enable him to do this in one way or another, and he will be aggressive in calling their case into question to get you the best possible outcome.

TESTIMONIALS

What Clients Are Saying About Us...

Simply the best!

Andrew was my 1st and only call I had to make when my son needed an attorney. He is extremely professional, kind and knowledgeable. Andrew takes the time to explain things, and is always available on his cell to answer any question to put your mind at ease. My son was charged with armed robbery and was facing over 20 years in prison, but Andrew was able to get the charges reduced and no jail time. I am extremely grateful to Andrew for his hard work and dedication to his profession. Do yourself a favor and stop searching, you will not be disappointed!

Great Lawyer.

I am a defense attorney in Will County Illinois. Whenever I get a matter in Cook County I always refer it to Andrew. He and I have known each other since the early 1990s when we worked together as Assistant State's Attorneys in the Criminal Division of the Will County State's Attorney's Office. Andrew really knows his stuff and truly cares about his clients. I can't speak highly enough about him as a person or an attorney.

by Christi Wondrely on Law Offices of Andrew Weisberg
Superior

Andrew Weisberg is an amazing attorney and was very quick and extremely helpful in a very stressful time for my daughter. I would highly recommend Andrew for any situation. Thank you so much Andrew!

Called Mr. Weisburg 2 days before my court date and he took care of everything. Went above and beyond anything I asked for. Can't get a better lawyer than Weisberg.

THANK YOUUU!

This message is just to THANK YOUUU! for all your help in my case! Finally I did my background check for nursing school, and came out CLEAR! You help me to give me my life back again and pursue my dreams of becoming a nurse! I am in the Nursing Program now, and if you ever find me in an hospital as a nurse, I will make sure you and your family receive just an excellent care! I just wanted to thank you for all, since the beginning when I called you, you were so kind. I will always recommend you as one of the best lawyers in the Chicago area! Thank you so much!

I went through several meetings with prospective lawyer representation before deciding to go with Andrew Weisberg. I was wrongly charged with a crime I did not commit and Andrew had the case dismissed quickly and thoroughly upon my hearing. Andrew went the extra mile in keeping my mind at ease through the whole process and made it easy for someone like myself not well versed regarding the legal system to understand. I would HIGHLY recommend Andrew to anyone in need of a dynamite defense attorney.

I have never had a need for an attorney before I met Andrew. He was able to put me at ease with his confidence and knowledge of the law. He also explained every step of the process and he really CARED about my thoughts and feelings. He is an incredible person and professional. I would highly recommend his services!

Highly Recommend

While I am not excited about the reasons for meeting Andrew, I am glad that I was introduced to him and his abilities. When I spoke with him for the first time, he told me what to expect and what he thought might happen. Being my first offense he was confident that he could help me. In between the time of that first conversation and the time we had to go to court, any questions I had, I was able to email him and he responded back right away. Even on the weekends. I was very impressed. Once we got to court, we were thrown a curveball, but he still managed to work with the less than favorable chances of getting me free of my offense, and I walked out of court without a mark on my record. I do not plan on getting sent back to court, but I would definitely refer anyone to Andrew! He saved me and my life!

I had never been in any sort of legal trouble before and neither has anyone in my family. Needless to say, when I was a arrested we didn't know what to do. My Father found Andrew on a whim and he explained the legal process to us very clearly and made is very comfortable throughout the hearings. Andrew is a great guy and if you want to win your case I highly recommend him. Thank you for everything.

Andrew Weisberg is an attorney with a heart who cares about his clients. He is not only very dynamic and professional in his work but also has his clients interest very close to his heart. When I first talked to Andrew about my case, Andrew was very honest with me and laid out various outcomes that were possible and put my mind at rest. Ever since I contacted him I did not have to worry about my case as I knew I was in very good hands. Andrew got my case dismissed and that was the best possible outcome I could get. Andrew went a step further and got my case expunged. In Andrew, I have found not only the best possible Criminal attorney but also a caring human being who I now regard as a friend who I can always turn to for advice. I strongly recommend Andrew to all prospective clients and can vouch for his sincerity and professionalism.

My son had an encounter that turned into an assault charge. I knew we needed legal help and Andrew returned my call within 30 minutes on a weekend We were clueless how to navigate the legal system and what to do next. Andrew helped us step by step and communicated with us accurately and positively. In the end it could not have worked out better. Andrew knows the system. I would call him immediately if we ever needed help. Thank you again Andrew

Very professional, knowledgeable, confident, down to earth, honest and realistic. As a family member of someone who was in need of a criminal defense attorney, I am truly grateful that we were able to find Andrew. We met with several attorneys before deciding to go with Andrew. We were impressed with his knowledge of the law, the nuances of the process of court proceedings and trials, and honesty about how he anticipated the case may go (good and bad). Most importantly, he listened and truly took into consideration our feelings and concerns. He cared and understood the impact that the case had on our family member and our family as a whole. He "won" the case for us and we can't thank him enough. I would highly recommend Andrew and can't say enough good things about hi

Andrew stepped in to help with our case after we had to replace a law firm that was not providing us with the support we needed. He jumped right in and sympathized with us regarding the nature of our case. He was very straight forward and told us what we were dealing with and what we were fighting against. Andrew was super responsive and was always easily reached via his cell phone. Above all he was not motivated by money but by doing what was right for us. He is certainly one of the strongest most ethical attorneys in Illinois. You can't go wrong.

Andrew handled my domestic battery case very well. He was/is always prompt with responding to calls or emails. Always made sure to take his time in explaining everything in great detail. Very honest with you about possible outcomes and scenarios. Definitely recommend Andrew!

I was starving for advice and a good direction to help a family member, that got arrested in Chicago,IL. I called several Lawyers unfortunately, they were not telling me the truth all they want is Money, which I did not mind if they were honest, giving a good advice and were going to do the work in fact, I almost hired one Lawyer that was going to do nothing just take the money. I was so blessed that I contacted Andrew M. Weisberg, he was so honest, helpful and he steered me to the right direction. I was very desperate for legal advice, When I found my family member got arrested; thank you Mr. Andrew. I wish I could shake your hand.

My son was in need of an attorney and I contacted Andrew over the weekend. He returned my calls on Saturday and Sunday. He was very helpful in helping us understand the legal process and taking the correct steps. His knowledge of how all of this works and advice on what to do was excellent.I would recommend him highly to anyone who needs help.

Drug Crimes | Drug Possession | Marijuana

The use of marijuana has been a controversial topic for decades.

Many have argued that the use of marijuana is a relatively harmless act and that criminalizing it is a waste of law-enforcement resources. On the other hand, even a small possession charge held severe consequences in most states. That is, until relatively recently.

Now, more and more states are beginning to review their current drug legislation and adjust policies so that they reflect modern attitudes. Illinois is one of [...]

Stealing from a Car – Even an Unlocked One – Is Burglary in Illinois

Burglary

For many, burglary and theft are two very different things – one just means taking things that don’t belong to you, while the other refers to breaking into a house or store to take those things. While there is some truth to that line of reasoning, it’s not completely correct. The legal definition of burglary can be much different, and more encompassing, than what most people often assume.

Take, for example, the case of three teenagers who were arrested in [...]
