About Me

I've been a bankruptcy lawyer in Virginia since 1993 and I've handled more than twelve thousand bankruptcies.  Bankruptcy is my business, suing debt collectors and credit bureaus is my hobby.


I graduated from law school at the University of Maryland and did banruptcies for several years for a small law firm in Baltimore and Glen Burnie.  In between, I did political and goverment work.  


I like being a bankruptcy lawyer, because bankruptcy is aobut happy endings.  I can help almost everyone I talk to-=I can help many people far more than they hoped.  When I'm finsihed, many folks say, I wish I had talked to you sooner.


I'm 64 years old, married and live with my (much younger) wife in Falls Church VA.  I'm a member of The Falls Church (Anglican).

  • Robert W Gambrell

    I endorse this lawyer. I first met Robert Weed approximately 12 years ago at NACBA convention and seminar. He impressed me then and I have followed his career since then from afar. He clearly embodies the type of person and lawyer that I would want one of my family members have represent them if they lived near him. He seems to really care about his clients, and giving them great service appears to be his first goal.
