I have used Arnold for several issues, from criminal defense to real estate and probate issues. I was so pleased with the results that I recommended him to my daughter who also had equally excellent results. Mr. Weiner knows all of the local judges and prosecutors and has a good working relationship with them. He is extremely personable and this quality serves him well.
When sought to defend both, a friend and a family member on different occasions, we found Mr. Weiner not only to be exponentially experienced in the courtroom; but after hiring him we found him to be dedicated, on top of the status of the case, and willing to keep us well-informed of the case. Even though it's not a requirement he is quite personable, which is greatly appreciated when you're already in such a distressful situation as dealing with the Courts. His expertise is unmatched. If we ever need to hire an attorney again in his practice areas of law, he will most definitely be the guy.
Attorney: Arnold L Weiner has represented myself, several family and friends over the pass decade with all positive or satisfactory results. All cases from A-Z. Criminal defense is definitely a strong suit. Could say so much more but trust me...
Mr. Weiner claims to be a 'loan modification' specialist. He charges $3500 dollars for Loan Modifications, then does NOTHING to earn said money. He'll show you some puff piece articles in a two year old newspaper, and tell you how much hes concerned about your home. Its all a lie. He is concerned with your $3500. Nothing more. You can do loan modifications yourself for free. He took the money from me, then three months later calls and says there is nothing anyone can do, I have to move out of my home in six months. I then started calling the mortgage company myself and NEGOTIATED MY OWN MODIFICATION AFTER ARNOLD WEINER SAID THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD DO AND HAD SIX MONTHS TO VACATE MY HOME. When I got the modification paperwork all completed and my home was saved, I called Mr. Weiner back and he ducked my calls for weeks, having me repeatedly send him the same documents time and again then tried to buy us off for 500 dollars while claiming that i was a bully for calling him repeatedly. . A shady guy, all the way around.
Also, he has a lady working in his office who claims to be some sort of real estate expert, Sharon Smith. She is the one who "handles" the actual modifications. Poorly. Stay away from this lawfirm for anything related to your mortgage.
