Never in my wildest dreams could I have ever imagined that one day I would be in need of a criminal defense attorney! As a professional business woman I have worked with many outstanding lawyers, but I consider Howard Weintraub by far to be one of Atlanta’s best Criminal Defense/DUI attorneys.
Because my case en compassed a substantial amount of time, I became very familiar with his style of practice. It wasn’t long before I soon realized how special this lawyer is, not only for my case and me, but also for his other clients as well. While working on my case I noticed that he was able to structure out a successful legal strategy based on my best interest and did so by combining his infinite wisdom and legal foresight to advise me. It was truly astonishing to see that plan executed when we made our courtroom appearances!
As you would expect, Howard is very well regarded in the legal community. When we would enter the courthouse I was truly amazed how well the judges respected him, as well as, his peers.
With an unrelenting passion for the rights of his clients and an extraordinary knowledge of the law, Howard produces favorable results -- it is understandably clear why Howard Weintraub has a reputation of being an excellent attorney.
Howard possesses excellent legal skills and an extraordinary compassion for people. His legal insight coupled with his years of experience and a winning reputation, makes Howard Weintraub an outstanding lawyer in my book, and one of the top criminal defense attorneys in Atlanta.
Howard’s kindhearted nature and happy disposition makes him an extraordinary advocate. Because of his unrelenting tenacity and dedication to produce the greatest result and outcome for my case, I also consider him to be my friend.
It is with great pleasure that I endorse the services of Howard J. Weintraub, and I encourage anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney or requiring legal assistance with a DUI to contact him. Like so many clients before me, procuring the services of Howard Weintraub allowed me to discover what makes this man an excellent lawyer!

Anyone who has been charged with serious crimes by the federal government knows how stressful this can be to both oneself and especially to one’s family and loved ones. As such, I needed an attorney who I could trust my life with. This was no easy task as I only knew the negative connotations associated with attorneys.
After hiring Attorney Howard Weintraub I realized that my previously formed negative thoughts about attorneys were no longer true as I had found an attorney who did more than he promised. Not only were Howard Weintraub’s fees reasonable, and the number of hours he spent on my case well exceeded the fees he charged, but he took my case personally.
His knowledge about the federal laws and the federal sentencing guidelines is remarkable. The weeks that we spent together preparing my case for court made me realize that I had found an exceptional attorney who eased my stress and believed in me. His relentless pursuit for justice in my case resulted in a very favorable outcome for me.
As such I not only hired an attorney, but I gained a friend who my family and I will always hold very close to our hearts. I have no hesitation in discussing my experience with Howard Weintraub and I would welcome contact with anyone who is searching for an attorney who will be straight forward and honest and will give 100% of his efforts to ensure that you have the best legal representation available.

I retained Howard J. Weintraub to represent me in my case versus the United States government that dealt firsthand with the infamous McDonald's Monopoly game scandal. With this being said, I needed counsel that was competent and trustworthy to handle the case that could determine the outcome of the rest of my life. I researched attorneys thoroughly in the Atlanta area and found Howard with the best credentials from not only experience as a well known defense attorney, but also as a federal prosecutor. Throughout the course of this extensive litigation with the federal government, dealing with U.S. Marshalls and U.S. District Courts, Weintraub showed nothing short of tenacity and professionalism. Howard was always there to assist me and ensure there would be a positive outcome to my case. His expertise and comprehensive knowledge of both state and federal laws, allowed me to persevere and close my case efficiently. Furthermore, I would wholeheartedly and highly recommend Weintraub's representation as counsel.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Having worked together on a case with Mr. Weintraub, it is evident that he knows his way around a courtroom. Mr. Weintraub's knowledge of the law and eloquence of the tongue are what sets him apart from other attorneys. He also has a multitude of experience in state and federal manners. I would recommend him for any criminal or traffic matters.
