About Ariel

Learn Ariel’s areas of practice.

Weissberg and Associates was founded in 1984. The firm’s business philosophy is to rehabilitate and salvage, rather than destroy; to work with clients as a team member to achieve the most cost-efficient positive results.

We reject the “volume-shop” approach to lawyering that is so common in business law.

The firm embraces the building of long-standing and broad-based relationships with its clients. Our goal is to evolve our client relationships as our clients’ needs change, and to help our clients advance their business circumstances.

Weissberg and Associates represents publicly traded and privately-held businesses, including real estate professionals, developers, banks, and telecommunication companies, and is counsel to individuals and businesses seeking financial advice and strategic planning assistance.

Our Principal, Ariel Weissberg, also serves as General Counsel to a number of businesses where he acts as part of the Management Team and as a key problem solver. We invite you to contact Ariel and explore how he might be an asset to your firm’s management team.

Experienced, Fierce, and knowledgeable. HIGHLY recommended!
As an attorney for over 23 years, I have work against (as opposing counsel) ,and with Mr. Weissberg on several matters. His ability to strategize a case from inception is unsurpassed. He is extremely well-respected by Judges and his peers, and his no nonsense approach expedites cases at great benefit to his clients. He sees what others do not see. I highly recommend him!

How much do I love Ariel and Hava?!?!?!?
From the very first meeting with Ariel, I felt like I was part of their family, had such a great conversation with him (e.g. his dog, kids, travel, common acquaintances, etc.) that it took my mind off the fact that I had to file bankruptcy, and ultimately reduced my anxiety regarding the bankruptcy. Now, I grew up in an Italian household so the interaction between Ariel and Hava during the process reminded me of my parents' interaction with one another so I was completely comfortable (if not made me more comfortable than a stuffy, fake, law office dynamic). Do not let this interaction second guess your decision to hire Ariel. Why? THEY GET THE JOB DONE. Let me repeat myself: THEY GET THE JOB DONE. Ariel was able to successfully get my Chapter 7 discharged and relieve me of 6 figure debt. Ariel (and Hava), if your read this review, please know I'm forever grateful for your services and the weight that has been lifted off my shoulders allows me to enjoy life again. I no longer wake up with a cloud of despair and impending doom over my head. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!

Superb!
Ariel and his staff at Weissberg and associates did an extremely professtional job for me. They were recommended by a friend, and I could not be happier with their services. Everything was done quickly, efficiently, and the right way. The most important thing for me was how everything was communicated to me honestly and expeditiously.

Clever Attorney Who Knows How to Litigate
Ariel is a voracious litigator and an incredibly intelligent adviser. He helped me get through a very intricate and potentially-devastating legal situation with the utmost professionalism and efficiency. I have nothing but respect for Ariel's business and legal expertise, especially in the areas of real estate and bankruptcy. If you're interested in good results, I highly recommend a consultation with Ariel.
