Robert Louis Wegman

About me

Our Firm handles a variety of Criminal and Traffic law issues, including the following: 

- Felonies 
- Misdemeanors 
- Sentence Modifications 
- Bond Hearings 
- Probation Violation Hearings 
- Appeals 
- Criminal Records Expungement 

- DUI / DWI; reckless driving, speeding

Mr. Wegman is an aggressive, hard-charging, honest, passionate and compassionate lawyer. Clients know that when their lives and freedom are at stake, they want him to exhaust every means to protect or preserve their rights. Mr. Wegman goes the "extra mile." 

Mr. Wegman has practiced law for over sixteen years, mostly in the criminal law area. He has served as a JAG Officer, where he has handled hundreds of criminal and administrative cases, and he has served as a Special Assistant United States Attorney, where he has prosecuted such cases as fraud, theft and sexual assault. 

Surprisingly, Mr. Wegman has witnessed how little attention people pay to their selection of attorneys. People often assume all attorneys will perform the same, so they tend to go with the person who gives them the best price, or who has the best name recognition, or has practiced in the geographic area the longest. But how much is your freedom worth? If you have been charged with an offense, it would greatly benefit you to arrange a consulation at no cost. 

The unfortunate reality is that one's choice of attorney often means the difference between a conviction and an acquittal. Everyone knows people who have paid their attorneys a lot of money and gotten little in return. No attorney can or should guarantee an outcome, and if he or she does -- run the other way. 

An attorney's zealous advocacy, negotiating skills, and raw passion make a tremendous difference in the nature and/or duration of any imposed punishment. Preparation and attention-to-detail are the hallmark of an effective attorney. Obviously, knowledge of the law is crucial. Mr. Wegman strives to be the best prepared attorney in the courtroom. 

Post-trial matters, such as appeals, sentence modifications and probation violation hearings can be equally important in maximizing one's personal freedom. The attorney you hire to represent you should know the courts, the judges, and prosecutors. Only then can you can you get a fair assessment of what you face in court. 

As basic as this sounds, Mr. Wegman will also return your phone calls in a timely manner and keep you completely apprised of your case. He is one of only a handful of attorneys who will give you his cell phone number and encourage you to call any time day or night for emergencies, or just because you need piece of mind.
