I was born in Miami Beach, Florida, in 1956. I graduated from Cheltenham High School near Philadelphia. I initially attended the University of Florida and received my B.A. from The American University, Washington D.C. in 1978. I graduated from Western New England University School of Law in 1982. I was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 1983, and am also admitted to practice before the United States District Court and the United States Bankruptcy Court. I am a member of the Hampshire County Bar Association, the Massachusetts Bar Association, and am a fellow of the Massachusetts Bar Foundation. I am a lecturer at the Isenberg School of Management, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and teach 'Contracts in Business Relationships' and 'Introduction to Law'. I have been a past lecturer for the Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education, Inc. in the areas of contract drafting and negotiation. I am a past member and past President of The Board of Directors of Friends of Children, Inc., a non-profit child advocacy organization, which, as part of its mission, administers the Court Appointed Special Advocates Program in Hampshire, Franklin, and Berkshire Counties. Until 2012, I was on the Board of Directors of Friends Of Hospice House, Inc. a residential hospice located in Amherst, Massachusetts and am a past President of that Board. My practice continues to focus on a variety of business transactions, commercial law, and commercial and residential real estate transactions. I represents numerous individuals and businesses in Western Massachusetts, and assist them in a variety of ways, including contract drafting and negotiation, real estate purchases and sales, commercial leasing, commercial financing, and employment agreements.

Attorney Weiss and I have worked together on a number of matters over the past 25 years. He is always thoughtful, thorough, and sensitive to the needs of his clients. His advice is clear and on point. The best endorsement I can give is that I've had him represent me for my own legal needs.

I first encountered Attorney Weiss while I was serving on a non-profit Board. He provided free legal advice to a worthy organization. I have since had the opportunity to refer him business law matters and have received calls from those clients thanking me for the referral and praising Attorney Weiss. He is dedicated and knowledgeable and I would recommend him to anyone.
