I earned my J.D. from South Texas College of Law in Houston, Texas in 1992. I started practicing with Alvin M. Rosenthal, one of the great lawyers in Houston's history. After several years of practicing together, Alvin retired and I grew the firm from a two lawyer shop to about a twenty person shop.
I have represented businesses ranging in size from one person start-up ventures to multi-national corporations employing hundreds of people in multiple countries. From 2005 through 2009, I was in-house counsel and chief operating officer of a multi-national corporation in the steel products industry. That in-house position really taught me how businesses work and what they actually need from their lawyers - both in-house and outside counsel.
In 2009, I started the The Weisblatt Law Firm, L.L.C. with the goal of creating a special law firm which could cater to a few clients and provide them the best in legal AND customer service. I am very proud that the very first customer who hired me in 1992 was also the first customer of The Weisblatt Law Firm, L.L.C. continuing a many decades long relationship.
I'm an avid bicycle rider, as well as a motorcycle buff, and have traveled to more than 30 countries. I live with my dog Sunshine who thinks I am the very best lawyer in the world.
