    I had the distinct pleasure of working with Sol on a complex, multi-million dollar white collar criminal litigation. He is unquestionably one of the finest criminal defense attorneys in the country. His knowledge of the intricacies of criminal law, attention to detail, and devotion to his clients leads to outstanding results. Without reservation, I give Sol my highest endorsement.

  • John Henry Rooney Jr.

    I have known Sol Wisenberg for all of his professional career (and before, as law school classmates), and have great respect for his intellect and ability as an attorney. Were I to be in need of services in the area in which he practices, he would be one of the first persons to whom I would turn.
