Posted by a client
I am a former client of Weintraub and Alper, and hiring them was one of the smartest things that I could have done. Facing the wrath of the Federal Government is something that no one should face by themselves. If you find yourself in this situation, I can say with 100% confidence, that Howard and Ben will be by your side every step of the way. I was part of a high profile case and Ben was my lead attorney. However, that does not mean that Howard sat on the sidelines while Ben took over. Howard was always there to answer all my questions, and in the courtroom he made sure I fully understood what was going on and what to expect from the Judge and Prosecution. I cannot begin to say enough about the professionalism and tenacity that Ben and Howard should during my case. They both fought for my rights and did not waiver when the Government was seeking a higher than normal prison sentence. They showed their brilliance in court and convinced the judge that the Government was being unreasonable. I owe Ben and Howard so much and cannot begin to thank them enough. They are both fantastic at what they do, and I would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone

Howard and Ben represented me in 2013. I was facing a minimum of 10 years for armed robbery. I absolutely LOVE Howard!! I always felt a "fatherly" vibe from him. He definitely did NOT sugar coat anything :) I don't know how Howard and Ben did it, but instead of serving 10 years in prison, I served only 2 1/2 years. Howard is the best at what he does. He won't stop until he finds the best outcome for you. I am so thankful that he represented me. I couldn't have found anyone better!

I hired Weintraub in 2005 for a DUI case. Everything seemed to be settled until I learned that my case was still open with the city in 2016 - 11 years later! Within a week of contacting Howard about this, he got my case closed. He has always been great to work with and is a truly admired and trusted attorney and adviser. I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal assistance, not just for DUI's but for any situations.

My son was caught up in some Legal trouble almost 3 years ago. Possible charges where Felony's in a traffic accident. After I placed a call on a Sunday to the Law office, Howard personally called back within 10 minutes even he was out of state at the time. We discussed the situation in length. And later that day we met with his Partner Ben Alper in their Atlanta office. Now almost 3 years later and a lot of work from those 2 Lawyers our case got the best possible outcome. No record, no jail. no felony. And my son finally can move on with his life. What I truly value at this Law Firm is that you not only a case number, but a person there life's are at stake. And Howard sure knows how to pick a great partner for his firm.

In September of 2014, I appeared in Fulton County State Court to answer a calendar call on my case. I was being charged with DUI and I have had 3 prior DUI convictions over my lifetime. I am 49 years old. My case had been continued by Judge Eady and the prosecutor for me to hire an attorney to represent me. When Judge Eady called my case I stood up and when the prosecutor asked where my attorney was I stated that I had not retained an attorney, even though my case had been continued more than once for me to hire an attorney. The prosecutor became upset and stated to Judge Eady that she felt I was playing games by seeking continuances to have an attorney and then coming to court without an attorney. The Courtroom was completely full of defendants and their lawyers. There must have been 100 cases that day and maybe over 25 lawyers in the courtroom. Judge Eady asked me in front of the packed courtroom why I hadn’t hired an attorney when I had been given several continuances to hire an attorney. I answered that I couldn’t afford to hire an attorney as I had been going through a terrible emotional time in my life due to the suicide death of my teenage daughter that had occurred just a few weeks before the court date.
At that moment a miracle happened!! One of the attorneys, who was sitting in the jury box which was full of attorneys appearing that day in court, stood up and said “Your Honor, Howard Weintraub, nice to see you again. I am here on my case that is on your calendar but after hearing what this gentleman has just stated, my heart goes out to him and his tragic loss and I announce that my partner, Benjamin Alper, and I will represent him pro bono, and not seek any compensation for our services.” Judge Eady thanked Howard for taking my case for fee and Howard then came over to me, hugged me in front of the packed courtroom and took me outside into an adjourning conference room to talk with me about the passing of my daughter and the facts of my case.
Oh my God, I could not believe what was happening! Mr. Weintraub was sent to me by God! Now let me tell you what Howard and Ben (his partner) did for me. Howard and Ben met with me the next day and reviewed my case with me. Due to an oversight, the Department of Drivers’ Services had suspended my license. Ben contacted the Department of Drivers’ Services on my behalf and got my license reinstated that day! Given the nature of the charges and my past history, the prosecutor initially demanded that I serve 10 days in the Fulton County Jail. I decided to just take my lumps and move on with my life and do the time. However, on the day of Court, Ben spoke to the Judge and the prosecutor and got them to drop all of the jail. Another miracle! These guys are great!
I cannot thank Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper enough for what they did for me. Howard and Ben are the two most compassionate people I have ever known. It is a privilege to have Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper represent me. And they did so for free and got a great result! God bless you Howard and Ben. Please hire Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to be your attorneys.

HOWARD WEINTRAUB AND BENJAMIN ALPER DID A PHENOMENAL JOB REPRESENTING ME
In 2013, I was indicted by a federal grand jury for several drug related offenses and money laundering. Because of the quantity of drugs involved in my case and my criminal history, I was facing 40 years in federal prison. Through a lawyer contact in Atlanta, Georgia I was referred to the criminal defense team of Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper. What a great team these lawyers are and I am so satisfied that I hired Howard and Ben to represent me. From my initial appearance and bond hearing through the imposition of sentencing in my case, Howard and Ben did a truly superb job representing my interests, exploring each and every defense and argument that could be raised either to exonerate me or to mitigate against my punishment should I be convicted either following a guilty plea or following a jury trial. Some three years after commencing their representation of me, Howard, Ben and I agreed that a plea of guilty would be the appropriate and judicious way to proceed. The plea protected me from receiving, in effect, a life sentence. Although I was sentenced to a period of imprisonment, the length of time that I will serve is drastically less than the 40 years I could have received.
I feel Howard and Ben did not fail to do anything in my defense. Throughout the three years of being represented by Howard and Ben both of these attorneys have remained true to their word in every aspect of my representation. Their task of representing me was very difficult due to my exposure of a lengthy prison sentence. Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper never let me down and I will remain forever grateful to the both of them for defending me and helping me. I highly recommend Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to anyone needing excellent criminal defense lawyers. They truly are phenomenal lawyers.

I can tell you that Howard is a fantastic defense attorney. I was referred to him after finding out I was under investigation by a federal agency for a misunderstanding. As an attorney myself, I knew how important it was to have a top-notch defense attorney get involved from the start. Howard did just that. I called him in a frenzy after discovering my predicament on a Friday evening when his office was closed. Normally I would have never expected a call back until Monday, but his answering service passed along the message and, sensing my urgency, he called me back that evening. This set the tone for our entire relationship. He is always on top of the issues and ready to take the next step. He is a tireless worker and skillful tactician with a mastery of the law. Within a week of hiring him we had created a detailed strategy for handling my case. This set my mind at ease and let me focus on the important things instead of worrying about the "what ifs". I knew he was working hard for me, but what mattered most to me was that I knew I could trust him with my case and my life. Within a few short months everything was cleared up and I was able to move on with my life. The intricacies of the criminal law process require someone who is diligent, intelligent and can empathize with their clients, while also fighting tooth and nail for their innocence. I have not met another attorney better at this than Howard. Whether you are charged with a simple misdemeanor or capital crime, he is the attorney you need on your side.

I was charged with a felony for possession of an illegal substance, immediately found Howard and was subsequently taken care of quickly and proficiently. Not only did he and his team work to get me out quick and get all charges dismissed, but they were also incredibly kind along the way. Cannot recommend enough.

Howard Weintraub is one of the best defense attorneys in metro Atlanta. He recently defended my daughter in numerous cases in several counties during her wild drug escapades. He was able to coordinate and consolidate all the cases together so that she got drug treatment and rehabilitation and not time in prison. Howard is a hard working, honest and honorable lawyer. I would recommend him to anyone that needed a criminal attorney.
I was very satisfied with the results of my daughter's cases.

In 2011 my nephew who is like a son to me was arrested in Gwinnett County Georgia for armed robbery. I am the mother of a well known National Football League player and I hoped that the fame of my son would not interfere with my nephew receiving a fair disposition of his case. Following my nephew’s arrest I hired the law firm of Weintraub & Alper to represent him. When I hired Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper I was aware that my nephew was facing at least 10 years in prison if he was convicted of the armed robbery. I prayed to God almost every day that Howard and Ben could somehow be able to spare my nephew from this long time in prison.
Through constant communication with my nephew, my sister and me Howard kept us completely aware of everything he was doing over the passage of time in the defense of my nephew. Howard’s negotiations with the prosecutors and his trial preparation eventually convinced the prosecutors to drop the armed robbery charge and a plea deal was reached that spared my nephew from being in prison for 10 years or even longer. As a result of Howard and Ben’s legal skills my nephew has been home for quite a while now and he is doing very well, residing with his family. Over the several years following the day I hired Howard and Ben to represent my nephew Howard and his wonderful administrative assistant Patricia Powell have treated me as if I were a member of Howard’s family. Howard and Patti call me periodically to see how I am doing, as I have had a serious medical issue. I consider Howard and Patti to be friends of mine. Howard even invited me and members of my family to his daughter’s wedding in 2013. Howard truly is a wonderful person and a fantastic attorney. He deeply and genuinely cares for his clients and their families.
I highly recommend Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to anyone in need of excellent criminal defense attorneys. Howard and Ben are a great team and they will not do you wrong.
