Mr. Weinstein is the founder of The Weinstein Law Firm and has three decades of experience representing individual and corporate clients in criminal and administrative investigations and in connection with all phases of sophisticated criminal and civil litigation.
Mr. Weinstein graduated in the top 1% of his class from the Benjamin N. Cardozo Law School in 1990, where he was a member of the Law Review. Prior to graduating law school, Mr. Weinstein served as a summer associate in the Litigation department of Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom.
Mr. Weinstein’s pursuit of a successful career in litigation started even before he was admitted to the bar, when, as a law student, he obtained the reversal of a client’s manslaughter conviction and lengthy prison sentence on appeal. Immediately upon graduating from law school, Mr. Weinstein served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Charles H. Tenney, United States District Judge for the Southern District of New York.
Opting to pursue hands-on courtroom experience over a big firm practice, between 1991 and 1998 Mr. Weinstein was associated with LaRossa, Mitchell, and Ross, a boutique criminal defense firm in New York City. Mr. Weinstein's trial skills were forged while at the LaRossa firm, where he gained extensive courtroom experience representing defendants in a large number of complex, lengthy and high-profile criminal trials, working alongside his life-long mentor James M. LaRossa, considered by many to be the most accomplished and skilled trial lawyer of his generation.
Since starting his own practice in 1998, Mr. Weinstein has continued to enjoy extraordinary success on behalf of his clients and has built and developed his own highly accomplished firm dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in connection with the litigation, trial and appeal of criminal and civil cases.
