    Best Defense Attorney!

    Back in September of 2014, my fiancé was notified that he was in violation of probation for leaving the state without permission. Because we knew this could mean potentially serious jail time as he is a registered sex offender, we began searching for a good criminal attorney. We found the Law Offices of Weintraub and Alper and gave them a call and we were in their office the next day which was the end of September. Howard and Benjamin were so helpful and genuinely nice we knew and had faith that they could help my fiancé. My fiancé was not taken to jail until December 2014 for the probation revocation. As soon as this happened Ben went straight to work for us by reaching out to the probation officer and gathering up all of the necessary information to explain why my fiancé did not need to be behind bars. The probation officer was going to recommend my fiancé serve six months for the violation but because Ben and Howard worked so hard the day of the court hearing (March 2015) Ben convinced the probation officer to go with three months and the probation officer said he would see what he could do. Long story short, the judge agreed to the three months and my fiancé was released a week later! Had it not been for Ben and Howard my fiancé would have had to serve six months in jail possibly more. I am forever grateful for their assistance and aggressiveness to bring my fiancé home.

    I would like to also add that my fiancé and I are working class citizens and could not afford all of the fees up front but Ben and Howard worked with us until we paid the balance in full. They were never rude about it or anything and I appreciate them for that as well.

    I would highly recommend anyone needing a criminal attorney to contact their office because they are the best!

    Happy Client

    Ben Alper is one of the best attorneys I ever met. Thorough, accessible, friendly and explained everything at every step. There's a lot more to a competent defense than I ever imagined and he turned over every rock and looked at all the relevant law to demand that the accuser make their case (which they did not and the case was dismissed). Highly recommended!!

Very grateful that he took the time to always answer my calls and to just make my life easier.... Would highly recommend them!!!!

    THE WEINTRAUB & ALPER TEAM IS PHENOMENAL !

    In reference to my previous review about 5 months ago (Review #103 on Howard's page) I had said that I would update my AVVO review as the case continued. Today I am pleased to say that I am the happiest man alive and that I owe my life and freedom to the Weintraub Team ! It has been a very long 7 months since my arrest, unsure of how my life would end up with this possible felony record hanging over my head. Throughout this time The Weintraub Team has worked tirelessly to get the results desired. A few days ago I received a call from Howard personally explaining to me that he was successful in getting the ADA to drop my case. WOW I was in complete shock ! He never made any promises to me about the case but always reassured me they would fight for me for the best result possible ! That is exactly what the TEAM has done ! I CAN'T POSSIBLY THINK OF A BETTER CHRISTMAS PRESENT AND BY FAR THE PERFECT WAY TO START A NEW YEAR ! Many THANKS go out to Howard, Ben, and Pat ! I don't believe there is another Law Firm out there that is as busy as The Weintraub Team yet stays in contact with their clients and keeps them updated as to the results of their current case as well as these guys do. If you have any question on who to hire for your criminal case, your search ends here ! I highly recommend the The Weintraub & Alper Team ! IT DOESN'T GET BETTER !!!!

    Ben and Howard are the BEST lawyers in Atlanta!

    In November 2013 I received the phone call , from my son, that no mother wants to receive. It was my 20-year-old, college sophomore, and he had been arrested in a small town in southern Georgia. He was pulled over for speeding and the officer said he smelled marijuana and searched the car. In the search a small amount of marijuana was discovered in one of the passengers back packs. Because no one claimed ownership of the drug all 5 people were arrested for possession and as the driver of the car criminal liability was placed on my son.
    My son, who is an honors student, athlete and who had never been in trouble before was in jail for marijuana possession. His goal is to work for the State Department after graduating and this arrest could have a devastating impact on his future.
    We needed a lawyer and we needed a GREAT one! Howard was recommended to us. The arrest happened over a weekend and we called and left a message on Saturday. Sunday morning bright and early Howard called us back. He actually apologized for not speaking to us on Saturday as he was at a family wedding! We talked for close to an hour and needless to say, that phone call left me with a sense of hope that I had not felt in 24 hours.
    My son, husband and I met with Howard and Ben the next day. They spent a great deal of time getting to know my son and his character. They also discussed, at length, the charges and outlined a plan to get the charges dropped and expunged from his record. There was no guarantee but we left that meeting hopeful and knew we had the best lawyers on our side. Howard and Ben made us feel confident for our son's future.
    The case dragged on for a year (small time court system) but the whole time Howard and Ben were in touch with us. We were given the best news before Christmas that our son would have to pay a speeding ticket and the drug charges were dropped and would be expunged from his record. He never even had to step foot in court. This happened just in time for him to be able to leave the country, last week, to study abroad for the semester.
    Howard and Ben you saved our son's future! We are so grateful Thank you!

    BENJAMIN ALPER AND HOWARD WEINTRAUB ARE PHENOMENAL CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYERS WHO SAVED ME

    Several months ago, while I was driving my car in Georgia, I was pulled over in the afternoon by a police officer who claimed I had an improper level of tint in my windows. After speaking with me and the passengers in my car and with the officer claiming that he smelled an odor of marijuana, my passengers and I were ordered out of my car. A search of my car then took place and the police found a quantity of marijuana in the trunk, together with a firearm and a weighing scale. Although these items did not belong to me, the officer arrested me and I was facing felony charges of being in possession of a firearm during the commission of a drug offense and possessing marijuana with the intent to distribute. Although my car was occupied with two passengers, the police placed criminal liability on me.
    As a young college graduate with a promising career ahead of me in the legal profession, I knew that this day had become a life-changing moment for me and I knew that I needed to retain formidable criminal defense lawyers in Atlanta to help me through this crisis. After making the dreaded telephone call from jail to my parents to advise them of my arrest (my first lifetime arrest) my parents searched for a criminal defense lawyer. At approximately 11 p.m. that evening my mother emailed the Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub in Atlanta briefly stating my situation and requesting a call from the attorneys when the office opened the next day. To my parents’ amazement and relief, they received a telephone call from Attorney Howard Weintraub himself within a few minutes from when the email had been sent! Howard Weintraub spoke with my parents concerning the legal procedure that I was facing and he took great care at the midnight hour to allay their fears and anxiety. Mr. Weintraub discussed with my parents the law concerning vehicle stops and vehicle searches, and discussed other matters with them. Mr. Weintraub also commiserated with my parents about the devastating impact of the arrest on my future career and he offered relief to my parents by generating a plan – if it worked – that would enable me to forgo a conviction and have the arrest expunged from my record. Although he was careful not to guarantee this result, he was hopeful that he could pull it off. Guess what? Howard Weintraub and his partner Benjamin Black Alper pulled it off!
    Howard and Ben hit the ground running the next day after I made bail and was released from jail. First, Ben and Howard met with me in their midtown Atlanta office for a conference that took several hours. At this meeting, Ben and Howard went through the facts of my case in painstaking detail. They also took the time and effort to learn about me and my background so that they could explain to the prosecutor that I was not a criminal. After the meeting I felt relieved and I was so thankful to have not one but two smart and tough lawyers in my corner.
    Howard and Ben routinely kept in touch with me about my case and their progress. Howard and Ben explained that the first step would be to get the felony charges reduced to misdemeanor charges. The prosecutors initially offered to let me plead guilty to the felony charges with a sentence of five years of probation. Howard and Ben would not accept that. After a few more rounds of negotiations, Howard and Ben convinced the prosecutor to drop the charges to misdemeanors. A second prosecutor then came onto my case and offered to let me plead guilty to the misdemeanors with a sentence of one year probation. Howard and Ben would not accept that. After further negotiations and a lengthy presentation to the prosecutors about my character and background, Howard and Ben convinced the prosecutors to let me resolve my case by entering a pretrial diversion program, allowing the charges to be totally dismissed and the arrest expunged from my record: the best possible outcome!!!

    Howard, David & Benjamin - Excellent Attorneys. Addition to review entiitled, ' Grateful in NYC'

    Benjamin Black Alper and David Glestrom were all instrumental in helping to exonerate my brother of serious criminal charges in Georgia. They are part of the Law firm of Howard J. Weintraub and helped to present the case that led to an outcome that my family and I were all happy with.
    Benjamin and David communicated with me on a regular basis. David Glestrom did not fail to brief me daily on strategy and answered my phone calls right away. His patience and sensitivity were invaluable in helping me and my family get through a very difficult time.
    I am grateful to the entire team of the law firm of Howard J. Weintraub for their hard work and diligence. Because of them, my brother will not have to go to prison and have a felony conviction hanging over his head.
    Thank you Howard Weintraub, Benjamin Alper and David Glestrom. You are a Godsend to you clients and a credit to the legal profession.
