Ms. Weinstein is truly a wonderful attorney to have on your side. She knew exactly how to approach my case and plain and simple, she got things done. After the initial consultation I was truly impressed by her knowledge and outline she recommended following, which was a bit different than a few of the other attorneys I had spoken to which pretty much asked me “what do you want to go after”. She knows the law very well and approached my case based on what the law would actually allow. I think that other approach allows attorneys to spend needless hours going back and forth on unattainable outcomes, while leaving you with a larger bill.
While representing me, I felt like I had the peace of mind I needed to get me through this tough time in my life. She is very firm in her negotiations and was very aggressive in the courtroom. It was a delight seeing my ex getting picked apart on the stand as he was caught in multiple lies. It felt as if the courtroom was a chess match, and Ms. Weinstein was able to think 5 steps ahead.
I highly recommend her, not only for what she did in the courtroom, but also for being a very fair and ethical attorney. I was not hit with any surprise fee’s, over charges, or anything of that nature. In one of the toughest times of my life, it was a blessing to have Ms. Weinstein represent me.

First of all, the attorney is not very good at communication. She doesn't reply to client's e-mails, she'll instead write letters, then have it scanned by her assistant and send by email the next day but she won't reply directly to client's e-mails. She does conveniently use e-mail when she needs to reach client urgently for clarification but will not answer anything the client wants to clarify quickly over e-mail. Important case material is not forwarded to client for days at times. Since she doesn't work on Fridays, that added to my case getting delayed just due to lack of communication between me, her and the opposing counsel. Before I hired her, she sounded as though, if the case demanded, she'll work even on Fridays and weekends to get the job done but that's a complete lie as it hasn't happened once in 6 months.
I sent her over 20-30 e-mails during the case asking for case updates and how I wanted to settle the case, the issues I needed clarification on or any suggestions I had. Of those 30 e-mails maybe she responded to 5 of them. Only way to reach her is to book a phone or in-person appointment and sometimes she may not be available for days. When you talk to her, the least you expect is for her to have read your e-mails and questions. But she has no clue what you are talking about on the phone because she hardly reads any client e-mails -- then you have to explain her all over.
Regarding the case itself, I asked her to add one or two lines to the draft of final judgment, but, as usual she missed reading that e-mail or may have even deliberately ignored taking my suggestion into account and forwarded it to the other party and they signed it. When I asked about it later, she says "it's already done, sorry, cannot be modified now!"
Given all the above issues, I honestly cannot recommend her to anyone. For $350/hr you will get a lot of good, patient and down-to-earth lawyers who actually listen to what the client says and solve clients' problems the way the client wants it.

I hired Mrs. Weinstein for my child custody case two years ago and she exceeded my every expectation. She was personable, intelligent, well-organized, fast-thinking and extremely knowledgeable. I was amazed by how much detail she used and how relentless she was to ensure the best possible outcome for my daughter. This was a really difficult time in my life and both Charlotte and her assistant Melody made me feel so comfortable and confident with the process. I will forever be thankful for everything Charlotte and Melody did for me and my daughter.

I have worked with Charlotte on several cases over the years. She is an excellent attorney. She is always prepared and fights as hard for her client's as any attorney I have ever had the pleasure to have a case with. I would highly recommend her services.

Charlotte fights hard for her clients, while always remaining a true professional. Her focus is always on her client and doing what is best for them - it is never on litigating just for the sake of litigating.
