My case did not turn out to be a very serious matter, but Mr Wisenberg deserves my review. I consulted several attorneys with my issue, so I can accurately compare the treatment from the same type of attorneys for the same type of issue. I found that the most important thing that you should be able to determine about your attorney before you move forward is that he/she possesses good, high character. I only met Mr Wisenberg for a short time, but I would say he falls into this category. Even though my issue was simple and quickly resolved, he remained behind after all the staff had gone home on Friday evening to share some stories and make me feel better, already having determined that there was no money in it for him. While others were in a hurry to hang up the phone or move on, Mr Wisenberg quickly showed me that not all attorneys are like that. This is the most important starting point in your search, so I'd highly recommend him for help with your legal issue. However, I would not recommend him for help in determining how to use all the features of your iPhone ;-)
Good luck everyone
In my eyes Sol is the top White Collar lawyer in the country. He took over my case from a group of inferior lawyers and worked tirelessly for my benefit. His dedication and knowledge ultimately resulted in the ultimate victory. I am free because of Sol Wisenberg and he has become a trusted advisor and friend.

To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Michael. I had to retain Solomon Wisenberg to represent myself in a case where my wife and I were the defendants facing charges brought against us from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. We were required to have separate attorneys. I chose Mr Wisenberg.
If you ever find yourself in these circumstances, words cannot begin to describe the emotions of fear, dread, and uncertainty one feels. You are heading into completely unknown territory, and you have no idea what lay ahead. My whole world and that of my young family was turned upside down. I wanted to write just a few sentences about Mr. Wisenberg, but that would not give him the credit that he should so deservedly have.
In my experience with attorneys, Mr. Wisenberg is by far the best at what he does. He answers the phone when you call him. If he is not available, and a message is left, he calls you back promptly. When I was going through that extremely strenuous and testing time, he was always there to offer counsel. If I was feeling entirely exhausted and overwhelmed, Mr. Wisenberg would be so encouraging and take the extra time with me until I felt more positive and certain about the upcoming proceedings. He was always straightforward with all information, and would never “sugar-coat” anything as to give me unrealistic expectations. Mr. Wisenberg also seems to be, in my humble opinion, one of the sharpest minds I have ever observed. His ability to anticipate and predict his opponents’ moves is staggering; it’s equivalent to watching an accomplished chess player.
Mr. Wisenberg worked intensely and tirelessly for myself and my family. He produced extremely favorable results, and did so with his dexterity and expertise. I know our situation would not have had the same outcome without him leading the way. This past spring, my wife, myself and our four children went to a Phillies game. After getting in our seats and watching our team play, I realized that if it was not for Sol, we would not have been there all together. I made it clear to him that the only outcome I needed was that my family would stay together, and he made it work.
In closing, I truly hope you never in the need of the services of Mr. Wisenberg. But if you find that you are in trouble, I would advise to pay him, do everything he says to do, and somehow try to get some sleep at night. The most honest thing I can say that I truly believe is someone you really can trust.
