I was arrested and charged in Theft III degree which is a gross misdemeanor in WA state. If convicted – the defendant will get up the jail time up to 364 days along and fines up to $5000 depending on the case. Also, if accused of stealing property – the individual can be arrested at any time throughout the process if any of the courts rules have not been met. At the end of the last year, being at the most depressed conditions, while struggling to find a good criminal attorney to support the case; I was able to schedule consultation with Phil Weinberg who made himself available to review the case immediately.
During the meeting – Phil offered the best options to support my case: Option 1. Compromise of Misdemeanor (COM) and Option 2. Stipulations of Continuance (SOC).
Throughout the case – Phil had presented himself as a very experienced attorney who was always available on the phone and face-to-face upon requests. Phil helped me greatly with my emotions by providing me an informational support while being able to spend more time investigating the best options and working on the statements to defend the client in front of prosecutor.
Phil spent nights/weekends working on my case while writing multiple letters to the prosecutor to negotiate the best deal even the prosecutor said “NO” to any of the options offered by Phil listed above.
At the end of case - Phil did an excellent job by negotiating the Option 2: SOC which means – if all of the court' conditions met my case will be dismissed; and better - with that I will be able to expunge all of the records (arrest/courts files) forever.
I highly recommend Phil to other clients who are struggling supporting their cases. Please don’t waste a lot of time searching for an experienced attorney as the time will be the most expensive factor at the end of the day throughout this process– contact Phil and he will represent you at your best. His flexibility, 20-25 year experience, knowledge, affordability and networking are assets that you would need.

Phil helped me turn a criminal matter into a civil matter is a very short period of time. Even though there was very little evidence to support the DA's case, Phil explained to me in detail that it was not a "winnable" case in the criminal courts. Although it did cost me a bit of money, Phil negotiated a settlement for the alleged property damages and worked quickly to turn this into a civil matter. I really appreciated Phil's dedication and professionalism throughout.

I hired Mr. Weinberg for a 4th degree domestic violence case. Throughout all the hearings he was very strong and fought very hard. On top of that he has been negotiating with the prosecutor attorney outside the court for a settlement. He did a great job by convincing the prosecutor attorney and the judge of dismissing my case a year before it was supposed to. I highly recommend him, and he is different than other lawyers, with a professional and caring attitude.

My drivers license was suspended in the first degree (habitual traffic offender) for driving under the influence. I had hired a lawyer a year prior that was unable to get a hold out on my suspension after two hearings and after that basically told me there was nothing we could do and I had to wait the remainding 3 years of my suspension without a license. After abother year of struggling without a license I decided to find a new attorney to see if anything could be done. I contacted a few attorneys and Philip L Weinberg was the only one that I could tell had a solid plan and comprehensive plan from the beginning. Mr. Weinberg is a man of action he gets things done and gets results. I was very impressed with his strategy and his ability to get me a hearing when others said it couldn't be done. My hearing went very smooth I didn't even need say much, the extensive evidence presented by Mr. Weinberg and I spoke for itself and I was granted a hold on my suspension so I can now get my license back two years earlier then I had hoped which is going to make moving forward in my life much easier. I greatly appreciate Philip Weinbergs communication always being a phone call away. His honesty in the outcomes and possibilitys. Also, his ability to think on his feet and get the desired results. I would and will in the future recommend anyone that needs legal assistance to Mr. Weinberg. Thanks again Phil!

Phillip Weinberg got me through, and out of one of the darkest realities I thought I would never need to face again.
I have been on probation for an out of state felony charge for almost 4 years. That is the number of years I would serve in prison if I violated just once; on top of that, would be sent back to my home country after completing my sentence.
I was taken into custody for a violation as such.
My family and I were fearing the facts. Weinberg took them and created an outcome we didn't think was possible. Two days after we spoke through a phone behind glass, my entire case was closed, and I was able to avoid a lengthy journey across the country. Mr. Weinberg kept consistent communication with me and my family, giving everyone peace of mind. The peace of mind that is only achieved when knowing your life and future are in good hands. Actually not good, but the best.
He is an excellent listener, non-judgemental, and worked my entire case from every angle.
Thank you again Mr. Weinberg, Your diligence and professionalism gave me my life back!

Phil orchestrated and obtained the defense and results I wanted in three cases in three different courts in King County, getting all three courts to concur on an outcome with no jail despite extensive history of failure to comply, new violations, etc. All were Gross Misdemeanors carrying one-year sentences in jail and $5K fine. Phil worked tirelessly on these cases. Anyone who says he doesn’t get great results or is not an attorney you can trust with your case and your liberty and future is sadly mistaken. Phil talked to me at great length before I hired him and all through the grueling court cases. He was relentlessly effortful and accessible during my cases. He really does care and his determination is self-evident. The results of his fighting for my rights speak for themselves. Your best move for the best possible attorney is Phil weinberg. I saw other lawyers in court and there is no one like Phil. Amazingly effective, brilliant, tenacious and tactical defense attorney. He will team with you every step of the way and work hard for the best outcome. I was extremely impressed and I and my whole family are so grateful for what he accomplished for us in negotiating with the prosecutors, getting the right experts for court, and his strong performance in the courts, winning my matters before all 3 judges.

I was facing a year in jail and a $5000 fine. Phil was able to get my case dismissed and support me through a very tough time in my life. He is very respectful and understanding. He was able to explain the process and what I needed to do in a way I could understand. He was avalible to me by email or phone to answer any questions or concerns I had at almost any time of the day. I would recommend him to my friends.

It takes many abilities and characteristics to craft an excellent attorney. When I first met Phil Weinberg, I was struck by his dynamic, action-oriented personality. He listened carefully to my descriptions of the issue and gave me forthright predictions about what it would take to win my case. He was bold about contacting strangers who we needed as witnesses and courageous about approaching the opposing party. He was direct with me about what I needed to do to see continued progress with my legal matter. Mr. Weinberg proved to be a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer in that he took a difficult case and produced a favorable legal outcome in a timely fashion. This assertive advocate resolved my legal matter completely long before I expected. In that Phillip L. Weinberg provided elite-level legal counsel I feel very fortunate to have such a powerhouse attorney.

I was in jail when Phil came to see me upon the request from my family to represent me. I have never been more scared in my life by that time. He helped me to understand what was actually happening and assured me he would do everything in his power to help me through it. On my first hearing he got my bail reduced and got me out of jail which looked very unlikely in my situation. He then worked tirelessly day and night with me and my family to get the best outcome that was possible. In the end he did even better than that and got my whole case dismissed without prejudice. He was not just an attorney to me, he was my friend through all of it and after. I couldn't have wished for a better lawyer. I am extremely grateful to him for everything he did and I will never forget it. I would strongly recommend him. Thank you once again for everything Phil! You'll always have a place in our hearts for what you did for me.

I was facing multiple sentences for multiple charges recently and they were all mandatory jail sentences but after working with Phill and his colleagues and some very impressive court appearances and statements prepared by Mr. Weinberg I was granted exactly what I wanted and won't see the inside of a jail cell any time soon. Ive worked with him for 2 years now on 7 different cases and he's always kept his word asks was honest about what was going on and always kept me informed. I recommend him to anyone I know in need of a good defense attorney. Yes got decades of experience in courtrooms and that's what I wanted when I was shopping for my defense. Ive bored him on every case since I met him and at an affordable rate I might add almost half of what a lawyer 1 year out of law school would charge. Ive spent less than a thousand dollars a case and they were all pretty serious charges. 7 charges and less then 2 weeks in jail over 2 years of time is well worth it time. Unless you like having a public pretender tell you how much jail time to expect hire this guy. Not guaranteeing a get out of jail free feed but Phill will go to the edge of the world for you as long as he's your private council. It's kind of nice telling people I have a lawyer instead of more jail time coming up! Thanks for all your help Phill!
