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!
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.
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!
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
I highly recommend Andrew Weisberg to people who, like me, find themselves in trouble with law and desperately need a knowledgeable lawyer to hold their hands and get through the turmoil! Andrew helped me with a battery misdemeanor case. He's very responsible and has tremendous knowledge about the state law and local courts. He understands the anxiety of a client and patiently answers all my questions and concerns! His presence and professionalism made me feel very ease at the court hearing date. Like many non-sense charges, the case was dismissed at the court! Anyone who deeply cares about their record, career and reputation deserves a good lawyer like Andrew!
Very professional, knowledgeable, confident, down to earth, honest and realistic.

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.

Legally speaking, however, the terms describe three different and specific types of criminal offenses. If you’re facing criminal charges related to stealing something, you need to know the legal definition of each term.
