I am a female of 22 years old who made a mistake and wanted to make things right, so I was incredibly lucky to get Andrew Weisberg to represent me. He has a lot of experience in the field of law. Being a state prosecutor for some time and now a lawyer ,he has a plethora of knowledge in the representation of both the sides of the courtroom.
I had a theft case on my hands where I pleaded guilty to over $7,000.00 stolen in increments from the place I worked at. I was faced with a felony and needed representation immediately. I luckily came across Andrew Weisberg through a very knowledgeable and trusted lawyer friend who referred me to Andrew because of his expertise in cases such as mine.
To make a long story short, he successfully got my felony dropped down to a misdemeanor with probation as opposed to 2-3 years worth of jail time. Need I mention that he did this incredible feat within the tight-wad confines of the skokie courthouse with the strictest, most non-sympathetic judge imaginable.
On top of everything else, he is an incredibly nice person who will not judge but listen carefully and come up with the best game plan to reach a positive outcome. If anyone is looking for a trustworthy, extremely supportive lawyer who is always on their p's and q's, very knowledgeable from years of experience, and possesses undeniable professionalism in the courtroom, Andrew Weisberg is your guy.

Andrew has been a better attorney than I could have hoped for. He has utilized his contacts and expertise to help my son and has gotten his sentence reduced from a high numbered felony to a class 2. He is always available (even on weekends!) to talk to a client. I have not once thought he was just collecting a check and doing as little as possible. Andrew has years of experience and knows how to use it to the benefit of his client. He has helped me, as a mother, to keep it together without giving me false hope. I would recommend Andrew to anyone and know that they would not be disappointed.
