  • Scott D Goldberg

    I have known Attorney Weil for over a decade. He is one of the most straight-forward lawyers you will meet. He is smart, thorough, and committed to working toward the best possible outcomes for his clients. With complete trust and confidence, I have referred people to Steve. In addition, he's a really good guy. Anyone needing a family law or real estate attorney would be well-represented by him.
