About me

An Emory University School of Law graduate himself, it was
no surprise when Mr. Weintraub hired criminal defense attorney, Benjamin Black
Alper to join his firm. With experience that encompasses nearly all aspects of
criminal defense, Ben is a natural fit and valued team member of the Weintraub
Law Firm!

Ben Alper is an experienced litigator with experience that
includes: U.S. Attorney’s Office, Northern District of Georgia, the Georgia
Attorney General’s Office, Criminal Justice Division, and the Northern Virginia
Capital Defender’s Office. As a Research Assistant for Emory University School
of Law, he is accredited for his valuable contribution to writing law review
articles in the areas of criminal procedure and corporate crimes.

Prior to attending Emory’s School of Law, Ben graduated with
Honors from Washington University in St. Louis after spending two years at the
United States Military Academy at West Point where he earned Dean’s list honors
every semester.

Knowing all too well that clients are often confused and
frustrated in contending with the particulars of an impending criminal
investigation or charges, Ben possesses exceptional communication and people
skills which help to alleviate fear and confusion that most clients often
undergo during the legal process.

    As a prosecutor, I worked a case with Ben as opposing counsel that was challenging for both of us. He handled the case intelligently, professionally, and was a great advocate for his client. It says a lot about Ben that Howard Weintraub, a renowned criminal defense attorney, promoted Ben from Associate to Partner. I endorse Ben Alper!
