Thankful
Mr. Weinbaum resolved an ongoing issue with my ex-husband/divorce with professionalism and his knowledge of the law. He listened to my concerns and tried to work with my ex prior to going back in the courtroom. In the end, Mr. Weinbaum presented a case to the judge with all the facts. I couldn't be happier with outcome! True closure!

Won both of my cases
While providing me a rock solid plan to follow. With a wise, calm, and at times aggressive demeanor during mediations. I had no doubt in my mind that Chet was my lawyer. As a family lawyer I recommend Chet thousand times over. Above and beyond my expectations. Truly a 5 star lawyer.

Excellence in service.
I first contacted and retained Atty Chet Weinbaum back in 1998 for my divorce. He was so knowledgeable and efficient handling my case then, that I have continued utilizing his legal services to present date (2018).

Great lawyer
I hired Mr. Weinbaum to file a life insurance claim when my husband passed away. He handled all the paperwork involved so that I could concentrate on other matters. The claim was processed in a timely manner thanks to Mr. Weinbaum.

Stood up for me
I initially used Chet for a consultation. I hired him to handle my divorce after the consultation. He was always quick to return my calls and answer my questions, very professional and dedicated. He represented me well and guided me every step of the way during the process. Excellent attorney.

Great lawyer
I would highly recommend Chet. He represented me and won my case in a dv/stalking case. He was able to fight for my safety and my child's safety and the outcome was successful. Chet is very ethical and straightforward. I am glad I retained him. It was money well spent

Divorce
Mr. Weinbaum handled my case several years ago, after 1 1/2 years in court he won me my case. Long story short he could have billed me for many unnecessary hours as my ex's attorney did to him. In the end I am grateful for the way he handled my case.

Amazingly awful performance
I hired this lawyer for a criminal case after I was arrested with no warning at a beach by a rogue and careless sheriff’s deputy because someone told his colleague that I "might have committed" a crime-at a different location, and on a different day.NO crime occurred!The officer asked me nothing.The lack of an investigation and professionalism by the deputy aside, the indisputable facts are that this attorney: failed to call in a key deputy witness, a no brainer witness, who would have cleared me immediately with his testimony. This attorney failed to realize, and use to our advantage, the fact that I was charged under the wrong statute for what I was accused of in the careless rush to arrest me. He took my money to depose the alleged victim and then suddenly changed his mind about doing this deposition after getting my money, offering no reason or refund. He also kept from me other key witness depositions transcripts of detectives (who stated under oath that they had no idea if a crime even ever happened ) kept these from me for me for months despite my desperate attempts to get this from him.He failed to use this testimony which all lawyers told me should have killed the case. He conducted the briefest of depositions, failing to ask key questions of the arresting officer.He failed to turn over to prosecutors hard evidence that my private investigators established in support of my innocence.He stayed silent last minute at a crucial hearing after being paid to make a critical argument and never explained to me his silence! All this is incredulous and factual and can be proven and shows a lawyer who wanted my money and see me fail for whatever reason or was over his head as a family lawyer who should never have taken this case! Always check a professional's references and testimonials before hiring them. I sure wish I had.
