Excellent Attorney
We were fortunate to be referred to Carol from another attorney who we were using for another matter. When we first contacted Carol, she immediately responded to our inquiry regarding a criminal matter involving our teenage son. Carol explained the legal process to us in layman’s terms and quickly gave us confidence that she could guide our child through his criminal defense. Carol handled very tough situations in a calm, composed and logical manner allowing our family to stay collected. She earned the respect of others, on both sides of the table, while continually advocating for our son. On a personal level, she has been incredibly understanding and compassionate with us and our child. She was instrumental in building and leading a first-class team providing the best chance for a successful outcome. Her vast experience obviously comes through, and she performs at the highest levels. She earns the highest praise possible.

5 Star Attorney!
In 2011 I was looking for an attorney to assist me with obtaining access to my daughters court blocked trust account to pay back taxes. Her father died in 2005 at an establishment and her paternal grandfather filed a wrongful death suit and she was awarded funds; however, her grandfather never told me of these funds and my daughter was contacted by the IRS stating there were accounts earning interest and taxes needed to be paid (my daughters grandfather was resistant to providing me with any information about these accounts). I initially contacted another attorney but he was not able to assist me with this matter and he provided me with Ms. Carol Weinman's telephone number and email. From the first day I contacted her I was very impressed with her care and concern for this matter. It took a few years to get the matter resolved due to the laws surrounding minors and court blocked accounts but Ms. Weinman was successful in doing so!!! I was awarded a court order allowing me to withdraw funds from the accounts to pay my daughters back taxes and I now receive all correspondence regarding the accounts as well!!!! With regards to her fees, I found Ms. Weinman's fees to be reasonable and she worked with me and was able to set up payment plans (not sure if any attorneys these days do this). If you are looking for a dedicated, attentive and persistent attorney they don't get any better than Ms. Carol Weinman!
