Danny Weisenburger was a well-respected attorney in Portage County when I got my first lawyer job at the Portage County Public Defender's Office. I met met in the courts of Portage County frequently. Since I knew almost nothing, I frequently asked other attorneys for advice. Mr. Weisenburger was always willing to take time out of his day to assist with my cases, though he had no duty to do so. I once asked him why he was so helpful to me and he responded that I was representing the accused, they weren't his clients, but they deserved to have the best representation possible and anything he could do to make sure they received it, he was willing and able to provide it. I still see Mr. Weisenburger at OACDL seminars and participating in OACDL discussion groups. I can tell from those contacts that his passion for protecting the rights of the criminally accused has only swollen since I moved away. I whole-heartedly endorse Danny Weisenbuger for all criminal and traffic matters.
