Peter J Weinman

also known as Pete Weinman, Staten Island Real Estate Lawyer

About me

For more than a decade, Peter J. Weinman, a lifelong Staten Islander, has been practicing law.  He has a wide diversity of legal experience, although he has focused his practice on Real Estate and General Civil Litigation.  Known among his clients and his peers for his integrity, dedication, honesty, and straight-forward thinking, Mr. Weinman personally works very closely with all his clients to keep them well informed at every step of their representation.


Working full time for Project Hospitality, Inc. (a Staten Island not-for-profit devoted to feeding and helping the homeless, the mentally-ill, and those affected by HIV/AIDS), while attending classes at night, Mr. Weinman received his Bachelor’s degree (B.A.) in English from the College of Staten Island in 1992. Eight years later, continuing to work while attending classes at night, Mr. Weinman received his Juris Doctor degree (J.D.) from New York Law School in 2000. 


While attending law school, Mr. Weinman took his personal hobby a step further and began taking freelance work as a “computer guy and law student.”  He designed and automated legal forms and office documents for many law firms located throughout the City of New York; some of which continue to use his forms to this day.  Because of his computer background, Mr. Weinman's office and files are almost entirely computerized.  


Since being admitted to practice in both New York and New Jersey, Mr. Weinman has been associated with some of Staten Island's most respected law firms, such as Lee & Amtzis, LLP, Corash & Hollender, PC, and Gaines & Fishler, LLP, where he gained invaluable knowledge and experience in all aspects of real estate and related litigation.  


In 2011, Mr. Weinman was elected to serve as one of the Directors on the Board of the Richmond County Bar Association (RCBA), and he is an active member of the Staten Island Trial Lawyers Association (SITLA), the RCBA Volunteer Lawyers Project, the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA), the Staten Island Women's Bar Association (SIWBA), the Staten Island Board of Realtors® (SIBOR), the National Association of Realtors®, (NAR) and he is an active volunteer Arbitrator at the Richmond County Civil Court, Small Claims Division, where he can be found hearing cases Friday mornings or Thursday nights, once or twice per month.  Mr. Weinman is also one of the founding board members of New World Preparatory Charter School (NWP), Staten Island's first charter middle-school, which opened its doors on September 8, 2010.  


Aside from trying to spend as much time as possible with his two children, Mr. Weinman enjoys riding his motorcycle and long-distance running; he has run the last twelve NYC Marathons, since 2000, usually finishing in around  five hours.
