Andrew Weisberg is fantastic. I was charged with with my first felony (retail theft) in 2015. I'd called about 10 lawyers before reaching Mr. Weisberg, and they had all recommended pleading down to a misdemeanor, fighting a trial, or just pleading guilty to the felony and getting probation (since there was video footage).
Mr. Weisberg was the only one who was able to calm me down and explain to me that there were programs for first time offenders, where I would be in a probation-type setting for about a year, then the charges would be dismissed. No other lawyers had even told me about this program. I'm currently still in the program, and can expunge the charges once the program is complete.
I did miss one of my court dates while in the program, and Mr. Weisberg was able to keep me in the program with a warning from the judge. I thought I'd be kicked out, but Mr. Weisberg got in touch with the related people and with fair certainty, assured me everything would be fine. When I requested he come to court with me in case things went sour, he even rearranged his schedule to make sure he'd be there that next week for my rescheduled court date (which was in 4 days!)
Mr. Weisberg really doesn't take the easy way out. If it weren't for him, I would probably have to live with a felony/misdemeanor on my record for life or spend time in jail, especially after the missed court date. Compared to some other "top-notch" lawyers in Chicago, Mr. Weisberg knows more ways to help you and WILL fight for you without giving up, rather than just half-assing your case because you aren't their priority.
Andrew Weisberg was a phenomenal lawyer that went the extra mile to explain the law and procedures. I would highly recommend him for any case.
Andrew Weissberg effectively saved my life. I am a young, PhD-bound person who had never been in trouble with the law, and when I was falsely accused of a felony-level crime which could have meant jail time and basically ruining my life, I could not afford to get anything but the best legal defense my family could afford. Andrew was that defense. He is an experienced criminal attorney; it is an understatement to say that he knows the ins and outs of the criminal justice system. Andrew is also a kind, caring person. He is almost always instantly available; whenever you text him that you want to talk, he usually calls or texts you within minutes. Andrew started as a stranger, but he ended as a friend.
My court proceedings lasted for 1.5 years, and Andrew was always there for me from day one. He actively engages with you so that you know exactly what's going on and exactly what you need to do to get that Not Guilty verdict at trial. That's what I got because of his talent and effort. Because of Andrew, my life and my future have been restored. If you are looking for a criminal defense attorney for yourself or one of your loved ones, and you want someone who you can trust and who will be satisfied with nothing but the best possible outcome for you and your family, then please seriously consider Andrew Weissberg.

I had Andrew as a lawyer for my first felony back in 2011. He was very helpful and knowledgeable, I would recommend him for his services. He fought very hard to keep me out of the prison system.

Spoke with Mr. Weisberg regarding a criminal matter a family member is going through and really felt at ease with the situation. He called back within minutes of my call to him. Keep in mind Mr. Weisberg was not yet retained by our family for this matter but he took the time to explain everything and never once mentioned money. He was professional, very knowledgable and had the answer for every question we had. After speaking with him we immediately wanted to retain him and expected him to tell us to bring in money. But that wasn't the case. He said there would be no reason for that, unless this matter went any further. Every lawyer we spoke with immediately asked for money and didn't seem to have any interest in what we were going through! Thank you Mr. Weisberg!
Mr. Weisberg is the nicest attorney there is. Sadly, he did not handle my case but he reffered me to one of his colleagues. He called me on a Sunday afternoon, minutes after I emailed him with my question, he didnt have to but he did and that shows what a great person he is. He is the kind of attorney that not only cares about your case but cares about you too.

I was starving for advice and a good direction to help a family member, that got arrested in Chicago,IL.
I called several Lawyers unfortunately, they were not telling me the truth all they want is Money, which I did not mind if they were honest, giving a good advice and were going to do the work in fact, I almost hired one Lawyer that was going to do nothing just take the money.
I was so blessed that I contacted Andrew M. Weisberg, he was so honest, helpful and he steered me to the right direction.
I was very desperate for legal advice, When I found my family member got arrested; thank you Mr. Andrew. I wish I could shake your hand.

Andrew handled my domestic battery case very well. He was/is always prompt with responding to calls or emails. Always made sure to take his time in explaining everything in great detail. Very honest with you about possible outcomes and scenarios. Definitely recommend Andrew!

Andrew stepped in to help with our case after we had to replace a law firm that was not providing us with the support we needed. He jumped right in and sympathized with us regarding the nature of our case. He was very straight forward and told us what we were dealing with and what we were fighting against. Andrew was super responsive and was always easily reached via his cell phone. Above all he was not motivated by money but by doing what was right for us. He is certainly one of the strongest most ethical attorneys in Illinois. You can't go wrong.
