Jolie Weinberg: Distinguishing Characteristics
. Exceptional professionalism and knowledge of Family Law. Experienced.
. Genuine interest and practice of keeping client fees contained.
. Provide a realistic picture of what you need to know versus what you want to hear ( asset versus income issue)
. Ability to quickly and accurately assess your situation and provide a best case, worst case and most likely case scenario ( in my case they preformed better than their most likely case scenario).
. Will willingly & actively pursue an issue on you behalf even though Jolie may assess it has a high risk of succeeding .
. Personable & Engaging. Emotionally Intelligent. Ability to work with a wide variety of people & personalities.
. I wouldn't think twice about engaging Jolie again, if needed. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
.Given my considerable experience with family law professionals Jolie has a distinct competitive advantage to many family law practitioners.

I was recommended to W & S to take on my divorce case against my wife. It was clear from the begining that she was out to destroy me, and I wanted a firm / lawyer that would fight for me and my rights as a father. I was pawned off to an associate at the firm yet billed for quite a bit of "strategy" time with Jolie Weinberg. When it came to my first hearing with the associate, he crumbled in the face of opposing counsel during the first day of my hearing. On the second day, Jolie showed up for the first time to represent me and could fair no better. I was completely disappointed and had them withdrawl as counsel. I am now no further along in my divorce process, but in debt to the firm for plenty of "billed time" working my case.

Jolie was outstanding. She walked me through every step of the process and told me what to expect along the way. One thing that I appreciated most was that she listened to what was most important to me and helped me to achieve those goals. All in all, she helped me make the best of a difficult situation. I have recommended her to everyone I know!

I remember the first time I met Jolie, I thought she was very knowledgeable, experienced, smart, and on the ball. Everything you need in a lawyer when proceeding towards a divorce. My divorce was very difficult, and it felt comforting to know that Jolie was managing the process, countering the attacks, and thinking in behalf of my best interest. I am thankful I met Jolie and her team, to help me through this time. Life is better now, thanks Jolie!!

I retained Jolie as my family lawyer to assist with my divorce matter a few years ago and would highly recommend her to prospective clients going through the divorce process. She is an extremely knowledgable Maryland family law practitioner whose practice is solely concentrated on family law matters (custody, propery settlement, divorce, etc). She is reliable and responsive and works hard to ensure that your best legal interests are protected. Additionally, she is a strong proponent of the collaborative approach to handling divorce matters and will help facilitate a 'non-confrontational' style of settlement if the issues are fairly uncontested. Jolie is well respected within the Maryland legal community and has strong working relationships with other professionals in the family law arena (family counselors, mediators, accountants, etc).

When things didn't work out well with mediation, my attorney recommended me to hire Jolie Weinberg to handle my divorce and separation agreement. I could not have been happier. I have been going back to her each year for child support updates and other matters. The firm is first class, professional and and the support staff is wonderful to work with. I highly recommend Weinberg and Schwartz as they do a great job!

Jolie was assigned to be my child's best interest attorney. She jumped to conclusions and refused to believe the complaints my child presented to her. My ex easily deceived her and she enabled my child to continue to be verbally and emotionally abused. When she realized her mistake, she filed something to the court to get out of the case. My daughter is still hateful towards her to this day.

Getting divorced is often necessary but it is not a pleasant experience to go through. Jolie Weinberg is a specialist in "Collaborative Divorces" and she exceeded my expectations. As a male initiating the divorce and seeking a female lawyer I was questioned by my friends if I had lost my mind. I was referred to Jolie because she has a reputation for being fair, nonjudgmental and seeks the best resolution for all parties. At all times from separation to absolute divorce, I felt that Jolieâ€™s goal was not only to give me the best legal advice but also offer the best advice that would result in a fair resolution for the other party. This is what I wanted and she listened. I hope to never need her advice again in matters like this but the reality of life is we all know someone who is or will be going through a divorce. My free advice to youâ€¦ call Jolie Weinberg and she will help you make the best of a bad situation.

Jolie is a caring and professional attorney who kept my family and children as top priorities. I totally trusted her and felt she is top in her field.

She was dishonest and tried to get more and more money out of me by claiming she could not get the defendant served in my case. I hired a new attorney and the defendant was served immediately.
