Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Steven J. Schwartzapfel

    I highly recommend Joel Weiss. He is highly credentialed and extremely well qualified to represent anyone involved in a criminal matter, especially white collar crime. He has served as Chief of the Nassau County District Attorney's Frauds and Rackets Bureaus. Joel is also AV rated by Martindale-Hubble and has been named a New York Metro Super Lawyer. He is passionate and caring. I will highly recommend anyone I know to Joel regarding any criminal matter whether Federal or State.

    I endorse this lawyer's work. We worked for the first time recently together on a difficult criminal matter and Joel was a consumate professional. Joel brings a wealth of valuable experience to the table and has an outstanding ability to put a case together and obtain excellent results for his client as a result. I endorse him without hesitation.
