FASTEST/BEST-EST MAN AROUND
We liked this man right off! His demeanor. My husband and myself were in an area we were/are ignorant about but we felt the weight come off our shoulders after meeting Steven Weinberger and his partner. We feel so fortunate that they were referred to us and that Steven was the man that would take our case. He was on top of it from the beginning and before 24 hours was up he had the situation sorted out and in order. The time needed to close the deal was dependent upon the snail-mail system. Certain original legal papers were needed. Any waiting was from that and even with that it was handled with us being informed about what was. He talked to lawyers and insurance companies to see what really was happening and what was next. Steve always returned phone calls even when he was on vacation. He dug into the situation quickly and discovered more in our favor than we ever thought possible. He made a bad situation feel better and took care of us. We can't say enough about how happy we are that Steven was introduced into our lives. He's no stuffed shirt either, just one heck of a great guy/lawyer.

Steve Weinberger Review
Steve reversed an initial claim from my insurance company where they denied my water damage claim. he was very implicit that when i reached out to him that i give him specifics to my case. He reviewed them and again asked many questions to get clarification from me..he did not want innuendos or vague input Once i completed my summary he professionally discussed each point with me so he was clear as to what actually happened. He then constructed a lefter outlining my facts and timelines. He sent the letter to State farm and initiated verbal communication with their claim department. At all intervals he kept me informed of the discussions and counseled me as to my needed steps. It was about 4 days after Steves intervention and communication with my state farm agent etc that the corporeal office reversed their initial decision. His thoroughness and follow ups were impeccable. His accessibility was amazing..very prompt and professional

Personal Injury, Business Contracts, Fraudulent Conduct Corporate Case
Dear Sir or Madam, I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Steven Weinberger for 21 years. His Los Angeles Firm first represented me in a wrongful death suit. I had been involved in an automobile accident, while six months pregnant, in which my husband was killed. This case was settled a few days into week one, of a 6 week jury trial. Mr. Weinberger has also helped me through the years constructing business contracts for real estate development partnerships and transactions. Presently, Mr. Weinberger is our referring attorney to a Los Angeles Firm and continues to oversee our Fraudulent Conduct Corporate Case against Wells Fargo. Through the years my business relationship with Mr. Weinberger easily segued into a personal friendship. He is not only incredibly knowledgeable about the law, he garners a tenacious warrior spirit. However, in addition, he has a soft underbelly that truly cares for his clients, which is not commonly heard of in correlation with the title of, "Attorney". This combination of attributes makes Mr. Steven Weinberger a brilliant choice as your representing attorney. My husband, Dr. Gary Rettig and I discuss a matter frequently, in that it is common for Doctors, Attorneys, Real Estate Agents, etc.. to use the excuse for lack of communication, "Well, I have several clients, patients, etc...", However, to that "ONE client, patient, etc...", those Representatives hold the key to the most pertinent information that affects the major course of your life moving forward. I feel that Mr. Weinberger understands this notion and is dedicated to stellar communication with his clients. In conclusion: It is an honor to write a recommendation for Mr. Steven Weinberger not only as my attorney but also as my friend. Best! Mrs. Shawn Hawthorne Rettig
