"STANDING UP AND SPEAKING OUT ON BEHALF OF PEOPLE"

I received a Juris Doctorate degree from Loyola Law School where I originally intended to become a corporate mergers and acquisitions attorney. While attending law school, however, I discovered my passion for STANDING UP and SPEAKING OUT on behalf of PEOPLE who are often ignored by the Government and the Courts. From that point forward, I wanted nothing more than to argue in front of judges and juries, using my gifts to PERSUASIVELY WIN cases for HARDWORKING PEOPLE. You don't have to be part of "the elite" to have a five-star rated attorney STANDING IN YOUR CORNER. This has been my mission for over 18 years.

I was born in Los Angeles. I have traveled to six Continents, including 27 countries. I have a keen interest in learning languages. I am fluent in Spanish and have practiced conversational French, Italian, Farsi, Cantonese, and Korean over the past 20 years.

I have studied the Art of Persuasion in its many forms. My private library includes the following best sellers:

How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

The Art of War by Sun Tzu

The Art of Seduction by Robert Greene

The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene

Win Your Case by Gerry Spence

Trial Techniques by Thomas A. Mauet

My personal philosophy in negotiation is that, in order to achieve results, one must employ the strategy that best fits the situation. The "bulldog" approach does not always get you results and can sometimes hinder progress. I approach every case with an intellectual perspective based on logic and sound legal reasoning balanced with an understanding of psychology and human nature.

I graduated from schools ranked top 20 in the nation. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Corporate Finance from USC Business School (Marshall School of Business) and worked in the banking industry for several years before attending law school.

Devin Weisberg gets positive results
I had a complex spousal situation involving my 4 year old and significant historical info that would be helpful. Devin listened to my story, which no one had, and formulated a strategy and plan to deliver what I told him was most important to me.

Keen Intellect
Our daughter found Weisberg Law Group after contacting other attorneys in the LA area. After being pretty much dismissed by the other attorneys, she found someone in Devin Weisberg who would not only listen to her case, but also show a little a little compassion for what she was going through. Mr. Weisberg advised her that, while he couldn’t get in the middle of a Motion that she already started, he could be on standby in the event she needed him. He even offered to look over her case beforehand. It was comforting to know that Weisberg Law Group was ready to go should she need to pull the trigger- after all, things can happen quickly in a lawsuit. As it turns out, she was fortunate to have her Motion granted. Weisberg went so far as to read the judge’s ruling and suggest a few things afterward. To us, this shows a keen intellect and curiosity for the law and rulings, traits that apply to only topnotch attorneys. If you are considering someone to handle your civil case, consider Weisberg Law Group.

Could not ask for a better attorney!
I hired Devin as my divorce lawyer after consulting with many lawyers. I could not have made a better choice in who I hired. Devin is extremely professional and knowledgeable about so many different areas of law. He knew exactly what to do with my case and was able to allay all of my fears. Working with him took all the stress and anxiety of getting divorced away because he handled everything for me. My ex husband could be considered a narcissistic personality and he was able to handle that personality type very easily. Devin was always extremely timely in everything he did and always got back to me as soon as he could about any issue I asked about. His knowledge base was extensive in many areas of law and he knew exactly how to treat and file everything I needed to have filed. I also never felt like he nickel and dimed me. He charged me his rate and never billed for things that were not appropriate or that did not advance the interests of the case. I feel he is very fair. Even though it was a considerable investment for me to hire a lawyer I do not regret it one bit. He is worth every penny and you will not be disappointed if you hire Devin as your attorney.

Worth every penny
I've had a few cases and dealt with a handful of attorneys. I can honestly say that Mr. Weisberg is the best defense I've ever retained. He genuinely cares about his clients and will discuss all the options available to help you make the best decision. He is honest and doesn't make you feel pressured or cheated. I would recommend him to anyone in need of legal help.

Diligent and knowledgeable
I contacted Mr. Weisberg in regards to a legal matter that I am facing. He is very knowledgeable in law, patient, and easy to talk to. He actually had read my email, and gave me plenty of options as solutions to think about as each one having a pro and a con; also in his procedural advice he is very practical. He is genuine und realistic, and I am very grateful for his advice and time. Thank you Mr. Weisberg!

Devin is detail oriented, persuasive and very deep on his case
Devin helped me with my vacate default judgment case. A tenant who broke lease and drag me into a law suit and then put an involuntary lien under my name with the default judgment. Devin helped me vacate the judgment. He was very deep in digging into my case, maybe slightly too deep. His hourly rate is not the highest, and he is not the lowest either. He is still helping me with my crazy tenant case, and this review is an encouraging 5 star review. hope we would get this case done soon in the future.

Easy to work with
When I reached out to Devin I was freaking out because I had missed a deadline to respond to the ex husbands counsel. He was so calm and explained to me that if we responded quickly we could still turn things around. He was very thorough with the whole divorce process and I really felt he had my best interest in mind. I would definitely work with him again.

Complicated Situation - Out of state Client
I previously lived in California . I received physical custody of my son via a dependency court in San Diego in conjunction with moving to to Texas . I currently live in Texas. My son’s mother filed a case in LA county during the same time when I filed to register the case in my home county. My attorney in Texas and multiple attorneys I consulted were not sure how to handle the case . After consulting with Devin, I hired him to handle the matter in LA county after he throughly explained the law and how he would handle the matter . I have never had an attorney that was so responsive and explained every detail of the law and how it applied to the case. Fortunately, I was able to come to an agreement with my sons mother prior to actually having to go to court and we agreed to have the case dismissed . Had we gone to court I had complete confidence in Devin. I highly recommend him.

Thorough and knowledgeable in real estate!!
We were swindled by a nightmare contractor who basically ran off with a big portion of our rehab money. Devin gave us the pros and cons in getting into litigation without pressuring us into signing a contract right away and he empowered us to make the right decision based on the facts of our case and not our emotions. We won the case because I knew we were on the right side of the law and Devin Weisberg proved that in the court proceedings.
