This review is long overdue. It’s been a year since my father was released from prison with all charges dismissed . I’ve realized that I’ve delayed writing this review, because it’s difficult to revisit what has been the hardest time of my life. Nonetheless, I think it would be a great disservice if I did not provide a reference for our superstar attorney Joe Weimortz, and his respective team. If you are reading this, you are probably facing the most critical decision you will EVER make: who will I trust to protect my liberty and freedom? Luckily, my family and I made the right decision in trusting Joe Weimortz. Below I will list several reasons why you too should trust Joe Weimortz.
He’s a major league attorney- We initially hired a mid-tier attorney for significantly less money. However, we quickly learned that you get what you pay for. Our original attorneys did not respond to our inquiries and concerns promptly, they lacked initiative to gather evidence for the defense, and they did not command respect from the D.A and judge.Finally we decided to switch my fathers representation to Weimortz and Falangetti. Below I will list reasons on why Joe is a MAJOR League Attorney.
Customer service is First-class: One night I learned of some developments in the case. I left Joe a message at 2 AM Saturday night voicing some concerns about the case. His wonderful office manager relayed the message to Joe, and Joe called me back first thing Sunday morning, listened to my concerns, and provided a plan of action to address the new developments. At this moment, I realized that we made the correct decision in hiring Joe.
Joe understands that the best defense is offense: Immediately, Joe and his team went on offense and collected evidence to counter the prosecutions theory. They were creative in their methods, and the evidence that was produced from their investigation ultimately set my father free. Simply put, Joe is a world-class attorney. This man is SHARP!
He commands respect from the D.A and Judge: At the court appearance immediately following my father’s arrest, our original attorney was steamrolled by the judge and the D.A. He literally could not get a word in. When Joe showed up in court, the judge and D.A were almost reverent in the way they addressed him. Joe was able to articulate his positions while both the D.A and judge listened attentively. In addition, the D.A was receptive when Joe presented the evidence that freed my father. The contrast between the mid-tier attorney and Joe Weimortz was clearer than night and day. Joe’s reputation precedes him!
Joe Weimortz genuinely cares about his clients:
Joe Weimortz wept with my father during one of their meetings in prison- I was astonished to learn how invested Joe was in our family. He took time to learn about our family, and genuinely cared about our well-being. His empathy translated into a fierce and successful defense for my father.
Once my father was set free, Joe voluntarily went to my fathers employer and ensured that he was given his job back. Joe truly went above in beyond in his role as attorney, and became our life-long friend.
Joe works with the best: When hiring Joe, you aren’t only hiring an ite attorney, you’re hiring an elite defense team.
On my father’s case, Joe worked with the best criminal defense investigator in Los Angeles. The investigator tilized digital forensic tactics to uncover damning evidence against the prosecution.
Joe also enlisted the help of a top criminal pathological psychiatrist to bolster the defense, who further proved that my father did not commit the crimes he was accused of.
Although my father’s case did not require additional help, Joe has a network elite expert witnesses which are ready at his disposal.
Joe proved to be the best investment my family has ever made. At a time we were hopeless, he gave us hope. At a time that the justice system was failing us, he fought back. Thank you Joe!

My sons and I retained Joseph Weimortz to represent my husband in a very serious case. My husband was charged with 9 felony counts of Penal Code Section 288. Each count was 15 years to life totaling 135 years to life total possible sentence. He was being falsely accused and in a blink of an eye our life totally fell apart. We originally retained another law firm and we were having problems getting timely responses from the previous attorney. Being that the case was so serious, my son decided to interview new attorneys to try to get better representation. My son went to meet with Joseph Weimortz; he immediately knew and felt that the change of attorneys was a must. The response from Joe and his team was like night and day. No matter what time of the day we called or emailed, they immediately responded; we were constantly in communication with the Administrative Assistant Desi Gomez. She was awesome! Joe’s expertise in this type of case made a world of difference in our representation. He knew exactly what he had to do and took all the necessary steps needed to free my husband. Joe is the most pleasant attorney ever; very professional and always patient in court waiting for his turn. He always briefed the family after each court date and answered all our questions and concerns right there and then. I believe his character and way of conducting business made a huge difference in our outcome in my husband’s case. Joe and his team put together an awesome disposition of my husband. Not too many attorney’s take the time to do this. It was a great disposition that clearly depicted the character of my husband. It was unfortunate that my husband was incarcerated for 6 months for something he didn’t do, but thanks to God and Joseph Weimortz and his team, my husband is a free man. Case was dismissed and all 9 felony counts were dropped! Do not think twice about hiring Joseph Weimortz, you will not be sorry; he has the necessary experience needed in these types of cases to have a favorable outcome in your case. He is the best money can buy!

I was charged with 13 misdemeanors, one which carried lifetime sex registration. I hired Joe and his office to represent me after firing the first lawyer I hired trying to save a few bucks. Although Joe wasn't cheap he more than earned his fees and in the end I felt the price was actually a great deal. The work ethic displayed coupled with a razor sharp legal mind created results were nothing short of amazing. Joe got eight counts dismissed thru grueling and exhaustive motion work and earned five NOT GUILTY verdicts on the most serious charges.
I strongly endorse Joe and his team if you want the best Defense lawyer in Southern California. Joe cares and he wants to win and will go the extra mile while leaving no stone unturned; I know this because he did this for me.
Felipe Plascencia, DUI and DWI Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I first met Joe Weimortz when he was a deputy district attorney. He was opposing counsel in a felony criminal case. He was one of the most ethical, professional, fair and hardworking D.A's I had ever gone up against. Since he became a defense attorney, we have worked on numerous cases and have tried approximately four trials together. Two of the successful cases were lengthy trials. We defended a sheriff in a manslaughter case. He was accused of running over and killing a 90 year old woman as she walked in the cross-walk. The trial lasted over a month and resulted in a dismissal. We also defended a deputy district attorney accused of being passed out behind the wheel in a car that was blocking traffic five from the curb. We put on the first ever sleep drunkeness (confusional arousal disorder) defense. The trial lasted over two weeks and resulted in a 40 minute not guilty. Mr. Weimortz is one of the most talented attorneys I have worked with in criminal cases.
