On November 8, 2012, The New York Law Journal wrote a cover story about Michael Weinstock and his pro bono work helping hospitalized people vote after hurricane Sandy. (see Pro Bono Scrambles to Secure Right to Vote of Patients on a 'Wild and Crazy' Election Day, page one, 11/8/12, see also http://www.newyorklawjournal.com/PubArticleNY.jsp?id=1202577637354&thepage=2) Mr. Weinstock was invited to participate in a panel discussion at the New York City Bar Association that very same day. (see photo) His accomplishment was also featured on the first page of the St. Johns School of Law website. (http://firstname.lastname@example.org%2facademics%2fgraduate%2flaw%2fpr_law_121108a.xml)

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I worked with Michael Weinstock at the Brooklyn District Attorneys office. He was not only one of the smartest and most ethical prosecutors around -- but I would frequently see him working in his tiny little office very late at night. Because he took his trial preparation so seriously, he became the trial attorney that the bureau chiefs would approach when they needed someone who was reliable. I strongly endorse him.
Robert Applebaum General practice Attorney
Mr. Weinstock is an outstanding attorney whose diverse experience ensures the highest level of service and professionalism. He has intricate knowledge of criminal law and procedure, particularly regarding DUI/DWI related matters. He is an impeccable advocate and a valuable resource in the legal community. I endorse Mr. Weinstock without equivocation.
