In life, there are few absolutes. Most of what we experience is a culmination of many factors; some in and some out of our control. Although many of the circumstances surrounding our case, and in the end, even the judge's (favorable) ruling was beyond our control, what we could control was our selection of Attorney Ann Weiss. As legal counselor in our family's recent child placement/custody hearing, Ann's many personal strengths and professional skills, thankfully lead us to a victory. Throughout the entire, lengthy case, Ann was always frank, honest and insightful. In every court room encounter, she was well prepared, confident and poised. Even when it appeared that a hearing might have been (again) delayed, and the judge demanded that a resolution be reached at that time, Ann was ready to defend, thoroughly prepared with her arguments, multicopied documents and finally, expert cross-examination. She was prepared--even for the unexpected. I believe that it was through Ann's expertise in exposing facts and evidence (that a secure and stable situation currently exists in the life of my granddaughter) that the judge was convinced in her ruling and justice was served.
Ann was expensive and gave very bad advice when it came to my child's custody case. She was terrible in court and as a result I lost my case. A complete waste of time and money and I would never recommend Ann to anyone.
Ann really helped me with my case against my ex-boyfriend who has tried to take our daughter away from me for years. She gave me good advice and it really showed in the end when we went to court!!!
