  • Howard Weintraub did a masterful job representing me.
    I contacted Atlanta criminal defense attorney Howard Weintraub while police were in my home with a search warrant and confiscating all of my computers and cell phones. I was scared and unsure about what to do and say in response to the questioning of me by the police. My call to Mr. Weintraub was at 7a.m. and I expected to get his answering service but Mr. Weintraub unbelievably answered the phone! He advised me as to how to handle the search-what to do and what to say and what not to do and what not to say. I felt a great deal better just knowing he was involved with me from the beginning of my case. It is now several months later and I am happy to say my case is closed! No arrest, no charges, no plea deal, no trial, no anything. What could have forever changed my life for the worse has become a non event. Mr. Weintraub’s handling of this matter can only be described as MASTERFUL. I can never adequately express my gratitude to attorney Howard Weintraub. If you need a great criminal defense lawyer call Howard Weintraub.

  • Son's life and career saved
    Howard and his entire team are OUTSTANDING. I can't imagine being in better hands in a court of law. He earned every penny of his fee. Howard, You saved my son's life and I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH! He put himself in a terrible position and being in the medical industry if he was convicted, in addition to facing jail time his career would have been over. I am not sure if he could have survived if that had happened. You were there for us when we most needed you. You are so compassionate that I wonder if you first went to school for social work - just kidding. You did talk me in off the ledge and and gave me confidence that you were the one to retain for my son. Your entire staff, especially Ben are OUTSTANDING. It would be my pleasure to speak to anyone who is considering you for their defense. THANK YOU MY FRIEND

  • A Great Lawyer but a Greater Person
    Lawyers traditionally have never been my favorite class of people. Fort the most part, I have found them to be arrogant, pompous, overconfident and sadly lacking in people skills. I never thought I would ever meet one that would change that perception, but Ben did, and only those people who really know me would really know what a great accomplishment that was. I was in a situation where I had to confront and deal with some truly horrible truths about people in general; I was facing things that would make most people run away screaming in terror. Ben did not turn away; he walked with me through things that, while unimaginable, were reality. He was truthful, honest, and caring and he did not judge which was very important to me. Ben's great value to me was not that he was a great lawyer, but a greater person and I now have something I never had before - a lawyer I can honestly say became my friend.

  • Stop calling other attorneys!
    I knew I had called the right law firm from the moment that Mr. Howard Weintraub answered my phone call first thing Monday morning following my DUI arrest that previous Friday night. Mr. Weintraub scheduled to see me that same day and I met the lead attorney for my case, Benjamin Alper. That meeting confirmed my feelings from the conversation. They were smart, personable, and incredibly trustworthy. I retained them immediately. Benjamin Alper’s character continually reaffirmed my initial feelings throughout the entire process. I have no doubt that the law offices of Weintraub and Alper put each and every one of their clients on the exact same pedestal - the top. The nine months leading up to us fighting this in a jury trial, we had the common continuances, the decisions to have the case heard before a Judge, take a plea, or take it to jury trial. Each step was clearly defined, discussed, recommended, and decided in my best interest. Ben NEVER failed to return a call or answer an email. I cannot thank them enough for how they handled me, my case, or the trial. Ben was always truthful, positive, and reassuring. I never felt for one second that I had hired the wrong attorney. Ben’s preparation and trial skills were so top notch that thankfully we did win. Although, I would have felt this strongly about recommending them win or lose based on the people they are and how they handled my case throughout the entire process . If you are in need of legal representation - DO NOT HESITATE to call Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper. I highly highly highly recommend The Law Offices of Weintraub and Alper!

  • For my family, Howard was that light.
    No one appreciates light more than someone surrounded by darkness. The criminal justice system is a dark room whose floor is filled with black holes that no one wants to fall into because once you do there is no way out. You need a light to navigate the room. For my family, Howard was that light. In September of this year, I saw a great attorney who walked with us through a tremendous amount of darkness and shined spectacularly when the darkness was at its worst. There was not a lot I could give him, so I gave him the best that I had, a piece of my heart. He will always have that.

  • I owe Ben and Howard so much and cannot begin to thank them enough.
    I am a former client of Weintraub and Alper, and hiring them was one of the smartest things that I could have done. Facing the wrath of the Federal Government is something that no one should face by themselves. If you find yourself in this situation, I can say with 100% confidence, that Howard and Ben will be by your side every step of the way. I was part of a high profile case and Ben was my lead attorney. However, that does not mean that Howard sat on the sidelines while Ben took over. Howard was always there to answer all my questions, and in the courtroom, he made sure I fully understood what was going on and what to expect from the Judge and Prosecution. I cannot begin to say enough about the professionalism and tenacity that Ben and Howard should during my case. They both fought for my rights and did not waiver when the Government was seeking a higher than normal prison sentence. They showed their brilliance in court and convinced the judge that the Government was being unreasonable. I owe Ben and Howard so much and cannot begin to thank them enough. They are both fantastic at what they do, and I would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone

  • Best Defense Attorney
    Ben represented me in 2013. I was facing a minimum of 10 years for armed robbery. Ben and Howard came to my rescue!! At the time, I was very naive about my charges and how much trouble I was actually in. Ben was always honest with my family and me. He would always listen to what I wanted. If he disagreed with me, he would let me know that he would go forward with my request, but it may not be in my best interest, and he would ALWAYS explain the reasons why. My case was very complicated, so it did take some time. Ben never gave up and he looked into every option possible. Ben was able to reduce my charges and I ended up serving only 2 1/2 years in prison. It couldn't have gone any better!! Ben was always on my side, and best of all, he gave me my life back.

  • I absolutely LOVE Howard!!
    Howard and Ben represented me in 2013. I was facing a minimum of 10 years for armed robbery. I absolutely LOVE Howard!! I always felt a "fatherly" vibe from him. He definitely did NOT sugar coat anything :) I don't know how Howard and Ben did it, but instead of serving 10 years in prison, I served only 2 1/2 years. Howard is the best at what he does. He won't stop until he finds the best outcome for you. I am so thankful that he represented me. I couldn't have found anyone better!

  • He has always been great to work with and is a truly admired and trusted attorney and adviser.
    I hired Weintraub in 2005 for a DUI case. Everything seemed to be settled until I learned that my case was still open with the city in 2016 - 11 years later! Within a week of contacting Howard about this, he got my case closed. He has always been great to work with and is a truly admired and trusted attorney and adviser. I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal assistance, not just for DUI's but for any situations.

  • Howard sure knows how to pick a great partner for his firm.
    My son was caught up in some Legal trouble almost 3 years ago. Possible charges where Felony's in a traffic accident. After I placed a call on a Sunday to the Law office, Howard personally called back within 10 minutes even he was out of state at the time. We discussed the situation in length. And later that day we met with his Partner Ben Alper in their Atlanta office. Now almost 3 years later and a lot of work from those 2 Lawyers our case got the best possible outcome. No record, no jail. no felony. And my son finally can move on with his life. What I truly value at this Law Firm is that you not only a case number, but a person there life's are at stake. And Howard sure knows how to pick a great partner for his firm.

  • Finally a Lawyer who understands
    Almost 3 years ago my Son was involved in an unfortunately accident. Leading to possible Felony charges and jail time.

Finally a Lawyer who understands that it is not just a job they are doing, but literally peoples lifes are in stake. Thank's so much...

  • Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper were sent by God to help me!
    In September of 2014, I appeared in Fulton County State Court to answer a calendar call on my case. I was being charged with DUI and I have had 3 prior DUI convictions over my lifetime. I am 49 years old. My case had been continued by Judge Eady and the prosecutor for me to hire an attorney to represent me. When Judge Eady called my case I stood up and when the prosecutor asked where my attorney was I stated that I had not retained an attorney, even though my case had been continued more than once for me to hire an attorney. The prosecutor became upset and stated to Judge Eady that she felt I was playing games by seeking continuances to have an attorney and then coming to court without an attorney. The Courtroom was completely full of defendants and their lawyers. There must have been 100 cases that day and maybe over 25 lawyers in the courtroom. Judge Eady asked me in front of the packed courtroom why I hadn’t hired an attorney when I had been given several continuances to hire an attorney. I answered that I couldn’t afford to hire an attorney as I had been going through a terrible emotional time in my life due to the suicide death of my teenage daughter that had occurred just a few weeks before the court date. At that moment a miracle happened!! One of the attorneys, who was sitting in the jury box which was full of attorneys appearing that day in court, stood up and said “Your Honor, Howard Weintraub, nice to see you again. I am here on my case that is on your calendar but after hearing what this gentleman has just stated, my heart goes out to him and his tragic loss and I announce that my partner, Benjamin Alper, and I will represent him pro bono, and not seek any compensation for our services.” Judge Eady thanked Howard for taking my case for fee and Howard then came over to me, hugged me in front of the packed courtroom and took me outside into an adjourning conference room to talk with me about the passing of my daughter and the facts of my case. Oh my God, I could not believe what was happening! Mr. Weintraub was sent to me by God! Now let me tell you what Howard and Ben (his partner) did for me. Howard and Ben met with me the next day and reviewed my case with me. Due to an oversight, the Department of Drivers’ Services had suspended my license. Ben contacted the Department of Drivers’ Services on my behalf and got my license reinstated that day! Given the nature of the charges and my past history, the prosecutor initially demanded that I serve 10 days in the Fulton County Jail. I decided to just take my lumps and move on with my life and do the time. However, on the day of Court, Ben spoke to the Judge and the prosecutor and got them to drop all of the jail. Another miracle! These guys are great! I cannot thank Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper enough for what they did for me. Howard and Ben are the two most compassionate people I have ever known. It is a privilege to have Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper represent me. And they did so for free and got a great result! God bless you Howard and Ben. Please hire Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to be your attorneys.

  • Howard Wewintraub and Benjamin Alper did a phenomenal job representing me.
    In 2013, I was indicted by a federal grand jury for several drug related offenses and money laundering. Because of the quantity of drugs involved in my case and my criminal history, I was facing 40 years in federal prison. Through a lawyer contact in Atlanta, Georgia I was referred to the criminal defense team of Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper. What a great team these lawyers are and I am so satisfied that I hired Howard and Ben to represent me. From my initial appearance and bond hearing through the imposition of sentencing in my case, Howard and Ben did a truly superb job representing my interests, exploring each and every defense and argument that could be raised either to exonerate me or to mitigate against my punishment should I be convicted either following a guilty plea or following a jury trial. Some three years after commencing their representation of me, Howard, Ben and I agreed that a plea of guilty would be the appropriate and judicious way to proceed. The plea protected me from receiving, in effect, a life sentence. Although I was sentenced to a period of imprisonment, the length of time that I will serve is drastically less than the 40 years I could have received. I feel Howard and Ben did not fail to do anything in my defense. Throughout the three years of being represented by Howard and Ben both of these attorneys have remained true to their word in every aspect of my representation. Their task of representing me was very difficult due to my exposure of a lengthy prison sentence. Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper never let me down and I will remain forever grateful to the both of them for defending me and helping me. I highly recommend Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to anyone needing excellent criminal defense lawyers. They truly are phenomenal lawyers.

  • He is the attorney you need on your side.
    I can tell you that Howard is a fantastic defense attorney. I was referred to him after finding out I was under investigation by a federal agency for a misunderstanding. As an attorney myself, I knew how important it was to have a top-notch defense attorney get involved from the start. Howard did just that. I called him in a frenzy after discovering my predicament on a Friday evening when his office was closed. Normally I would have never expected a call back until Monday, but his answering service passed along the message and, sensing my urgency, he called me back that evening. This set the tone for our entire relationship. He is always on top of the issues and ready to take the next step. He is a tireless worker and skillful tactician with a mastery of the law. Within a week of hiring him we had created a detailed strategy for handling my case. This set my mind at ease and let me focus on the important things instead of worrying about the "what ifs". I knew he was working hard for me, but what mattered most to me was that I knew I could trust him with my case and my life. Within a few short months everything was cleared up and I was able to move on with my life. The intricacies of the criminal law process require someone who is diligent, intelligent and can empathize with their clients, while also fighting tooth and nail for their innocence. I have not met another attorney better at this than Howard. Whether you are charged with a simple misdemeanor or capital crime, he is the attorney you need on your side.

  • Very good attorney!
    Ben is a very good lawyer, my son got into trouble in Spalding county and Ben came all the way down there to help us out. My son was facing a long jail time, he spent very little time in jail and everything got dropped later. Ben and my son were able to work well together and that helped out a lot. Very good lawyer.

  • Cannot recommend enough.
    I was charged with a felony for possession of an illegal substance, immediately found Howard and was subsequently taken care of quickly and proficiently. Not only did he and his team work to get me out quick and get all charges dismissed, but they were also incredibly kind along the way. Cannot recommend enough.

  • Best Defense lawyer!
    Howard Weintraub is one of the best defense attorneys in metro Atlanta. He recently defended my daughter in numerous cases in several counties during her wild drug escapades. He was able to coordinate and consolidate all the cases together so that she got drug treatment and rehabilitation and not time in prison. Howard is a hard working, honest and honorable lawyer. I would recommend him to anyone that needed a criminal attorney. I was very satisfied with the results of my daughter's cases.

  • Fantastic Criminal Defense Lawyers!
    In 2011 my nephew who is like a son to me was arrested in Gwinnett County Georgia for armed robbery. I am the mother of a well known National Football League player and I hoped that the fame of my son would not interfere with my nephew receiving a fair disposition of his case. Following my nephew’s arrest I hired the law firm of Weintraub & Alper to represent him. When I hired Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper I was aware that my nephew was facing at least 10 years in prison if he was convicted of the armed robbery. I prayed to God almost every day that Howard and Ben could somehow be able to spare my nephew from this long time in prison. Through constant communication with my nephew, my sister and me Howard kept us completely aware of everything he was doing over the passage of time in the defense of my nephew. Howard’s negotiations with the prosecutors and his trial preparation eventually convinced the prosecutors to drop the armed robbery charge and a plea deal was reached that spared my nephew from being in prison for 10 years or even longer. As a result of Howard and Ben’s legal skills my nephew has been home for quite a while now and he is doing very well, residing with his family. Over the several years following the day I hired Howard and Ben to represent my nephew Howard and his wonderful administrative assistant Patricia Powell have treated me as if I were a member of Howard’s family. Howard and Patti call me periodically to see how I am doing, as I have had a serious medical issue. I consider Howard and Patti to be friends of mine. Howard even invited me and members of my family to his daughter’s wedding in 2013. Howard truly is a wonderful person and a fantastic attorney. He deeply and genuinely cares for his clients and their families. I highly recommend Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to anyone in need of excellent criminal defense attorneys. Howard and Ben are a great team and they will not do you wrong.

  • Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper are the best!
    Last year I came under investigation by a federal law enforcement agency which is under the mistaken position that I am using my business to engage in criminal activity. Government agents have gone out and talked about my alleged criminal activity with companies that my business does work for. The impact of this investigation and of agents talking about me to other businesses had the potential effect of closing down my business. We are a small family run business where I employ approximately 20 people. I could not let these families who depend upon me down and I needed to hire aggressive and hard fighting experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyers to represent me and fight for me. I hired Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to be my lawyers and to help me through this nightmare. Through his efforts Howard convinced the business that I most needed to continue to work with me that I was not engaging in criminal activity as was being insinuated by the government agents in their interviews. Because of Howard’s successful efforts my business continues to operate despite the government’s efforts to close me down. Although my case is not over and I am aware the investigation into allegations about me may continue for a long period of time I have the peace of mind knowing that Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper are fighting all the way and all of the time for me. Howard has been extremely dedicated to me and speaks with me on an almost daily basis. I know that I am not the only client that Howard has but he certainly treats me as if I were his only client. Howard put in long hours over the past holiday season and on Christmas day and over the New Years holiday to finish an important aspect of my defense. Over the years I have used several lawyers and I can honestly say without any hesitation that Howard Weintraub is the best of the best. I highly recommend Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to anyone who is being accused of any type of criminal activity.

  • Howard and Ben achieved the result of having my charge dismissed!
    I hired Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to handle a criminal matter that I was involved in. When I first called the legal office of Weintraub & Alper, P.C. on a weekend, Howard immediately called me back and Howard and Ben met with me that Monday morning. They began running with my case and never looked backwards. Through the efforts of Howard and Ben my case went through the court system in an extremely efficient and expeditious manner and Howard and Ben achieved the result of having my charge dismissed and my arrest record expunged. I cannot thank Howard and Ben enough for their prompt quality representation of me. I highly recommend these two defense lawyers.

  • Mr. Weintraub saved my son!
    In July 2015 - a police officer came to my home and wanted to question my nineteen year old son . Since the Officer would not tell me the reason and had no warrant- I closed the door and immediately called Mr. Weintraub. It was the best call I ever made. Even though it was after hours -- Mr. Weintraub called me back immediately. From that point on -- Mr. Weintraub took full control of this investigation and did everything necessary to prove my son's innocence and have the investigation closed. I am so grateful that Mr. Weintraub prevented my son from being arrested and held in a county jail. As a mother - words cannot describe how attentive Mr. Weintraub was to every detail, and he followed through quickly with absolutely everything he said he would do. I truly believe it is only because I hired Mr. Weintraub that these false charges were shown to be all untruths, and my son was able to continue living his normal life.

  • Thank you Mr. Weintraub!
    I am a nineteen year old and I was helped twice this year in two cases by Mr. Weintraub. The first one was I signed a contract that I did not understand with a gym and even though I gave medical proof of reason to cancel the gym was threatening me with collections. One call to Mr. Weintraub and he told me what I needed to do. Within a couple of weeks -- the gym stopped harassing me and it was over. I also got falsely accused of something this summer that really scared me . Mr. Weintraub kept me informed which really reduced how scared I felt. He talked to me for hours and spent more hours investigating everything and proving my innocence. I was really scared and I am so happy nothing happened to me. I am really lucky my mom knew to call Mr. Weintraub for help. He is really nice and treated me with respect and made me feel a lot better about everything.

  • Best lawyer ever!
    Howard Weintraub have defended my young adult daughter on three separate felony and misdemeanor cases in Fulton County, Georgia Superior Court and State Court and in Gwinnett County, Georgia Superior Court. In each case, Howard reached an extremely successful result sparing my daughter from any jail time. Throughout my relationship with Howard, I have found he is extremely knowledgeable, professional, very accessible to my telephone calls and emails and very caring for my daughter and me. They also worked with us regarding the fees that they charged us for the three separate cases as they reduced their fees to help us with our limited financial resources to fight these three legal battles. My daughter had substance abuse problems, which was the cause of her three criminal cases. She has been sober from alcohol and free from drugs now for almost a year and she is very well in college in Florida. I truly believe that the legal efforts and successful handling of my daughter's three cases by Howard Weintraub saved my daughter and enabled my daughter to turn her life around. For this, my daughter and I are forever eternally grateful to Howard. Howard Weintraub is wonderful, caring, compassionate lawyers, and I highly recommend them to anyone needing to hire aggressive and honest criminal defense lawyers. God bless you Howard for saving my daughter.

  • Conviction Overturned, Thanks to Howard Weintraub!
    I was wrongfully convicted of child molestation in 2005 and I was sentenced to ten years in prison. After my conviction, my family hired attorney Howard Weintraub to try to get my conviction overturned. He filed for a new trial and eventually persuaded the Georgia Court of Appeals to overturn my conviction. On November 20, 2008 my conviction was reversed by the Georgia Court of Appeals. I was let out of prison on February 03, 2009. I thank God that my family hired Mr. Weintraub. I highly recommend Mr. Weintraub to anyone who needs a great attorney to fight for him.

  • Best Defense Attorney!
    Back in September of 2014, my fiancé was notified that he was in violation of probation for leaving the state without permission. Because we knew this could mean potentially serious jail time as he is a registered sex offender, we began searching for a good criminal attorney. We found the Law Offices of Weintraub and Alper and gave them a call and we were in their office the next day which was the end of September. Howard and Benjamin were so helpful and genuinely nice we knew and had faith that they could help my fiancé. My fiancé was not taken to jail until December 2014 for the probation revocation. As soon as this happened Ben went straight to work for us by reaching out to the probation officer and gathering up all of the necessary information to explain why my fiancé did not need to be behind bars. The probation officer was going to recommend my fiancé serve six months for the violation but because Ben and Howard worked so hard the day of the court hearing (March 2015) Ben convinced the probation officer to go with three months and the probation officer said he would see what he could do. Long story short, the judge agreed to the three months and my fiancé was released a week later! Had it not been for Ben and Howard my fiancé would have had to serve six months in jail possibly more. I am forever grateful for their assistance and aggressiveness to bring my fiancé home. I would like to also add that my fiancé and I are working class citizens and could not afford all of the fees up front but Ben and Howard worked with us until we paid the balance in full. They were never rude about it or anything and I appreciate them for that as well. I would highly recommend anyone needing a criminal attorney to contact their office because they are the best!

  • Happy client!
    Ben Alper is one of the best attorneys I ever met. Thorough, accessible, friendly and explained everything at every step. There's a lot more to a competent defense than I ever imagined and he turned over every rock and looked at all the relevant law to demand that the accuser make their case (which they did not and the case was dismissed). Highly recommended!!

  • God Bless Howard and Ben!
    After finding out I had a Failure To Appear on a citation that I had previously paid, I called Howard. Through his determination, he got the bench warrant dropped, and gave me my freedom back! It was wonderful that they kept in touch every step of the way, Howard even called me on his personal time to see how I was doing. If you want Attorney's who show genuine compassion for your situation, has your back, and will fight for you as if you were a family member, call Howard & Ben!

  • Worth it

  • Please trust these two lawyers!
    With the current state of affairs with police officers and Black American, as the parents of a young Black male that has never, ever, been in trouble with the law and had just graduated from a prestigious University in Atlanta Georgia, it was mind boggling when he was pulled over in Georgia for what I feel was being “Black and driving a nice car”, it was the most frighten thing for us to get a call from our son stating that he had been arrested. He was taken to a police station and was not allowed to call his parents. It was only through persistent calling to the police station that we found out that he needed a telephone account to make calls outside the jail to his parents. We didn’t know the charges, reason, or what was happening to our son. I immediately started to research the lawyers in that area that could handle this case and tell us what was going on with our son. We contacted the Law office of Howard J. Weintraub at 11:45 p.m. We knew it was very late and was hoping to receive a call from him the next morning but approximately 30 minutes later at 12:15 a.m., Howard called us in regards to our son. We were totally shocked that a lawyer would call us at that early time of the morning. Howard did not make any guarantees or promises to us. He explained the legal process to us and told us what to expect. He met with our son at 8:30 a.m. that same morning and went over the case with him and with us. Once again, he never made any guarantees or promises to us or to our son but he did say that he would do everything in his power to get the charges reduced and eventually dismissed. Our son was facing felony drug charges and vehicle violations (tint to dark in car). After our son returned home, we were thankful that he did not end up hurt, beaten, or worst dead as a result of what happened on interstate 85 with these police officers. Howard and Ben were a life saver and life line to us and the legal system. Howard never panicked, worried or stressed but kept us focused on taking care of our son and he and his partner, Ben, taking care of this case. Race, social economic status, education, or religion did not matter to Howard and Ben, only ensuring that our son got the best possible legal representation. They fought for our son as if he was their very own relative and they always followed up with us 2-3 times a week letting us know what was going on with his case. I know that isn’t the norm for lawyers but it was for Howard and Ben. In the end, all felony charges have been dropped and he was approved for a diversion program and once that is complete, his record will be expunged. Howard and Ben did assure us that their work would not be completed until every “I” was dotted and every “T” was crossed for our son and his record is expunged. If you want a lawyer that will speak the truth, not BS you, and fight for your rights, then you want Howard and Ben as your lawyers. It’s not a black or white thing for them, it’s the right thing. This amazing Atlanta law firm looked beyond race and saw our needs…….and we thank God every day for them. They will always be a part of our family.

  • The government stole my money. Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper got it back!
    Several months ago, I found out that the United States Government had seized my bank account and thousands of dollars of my money even though I had done nothing wrong. I had no idea what to do or how to fight back. I also feared the Government might try to bring criminal charges against me! I contacted The Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub, P.C. and quickly retained them to help me. Howard and Ben were great throughout the process. They spoke to me for hours about my case and had me put together lots of documentation in support of my defense. After all, this was my hard-earned money! Howard and Ben initially calmed my fears by convincing the prosecutor not to pursue any criminal charges against me. However, they would not settle for that and demanded that the Government return my money. After several rounds of negotiations, Howard and Ben convinced the Federal Prosecutor to return every cent of my money! I cannot thank Howard and Ben enough. They took a very stressful situation and took care of me and got me the best outcome possible. If you ever need an attorney, contact Howard and Ben immediately!

  • Fantastic Attorneys!
    I am the owner of a business that is highly scrutinized by both Federal and State of Georgia regulatory agencies. It is my obligation to be fully aware of the morass of regulations, wherein a knowing violation of a rule can expose me to both civil penalties and a criminal prosecution, that could place me in prison. Last year I found myself in a situation wherein it may have been deemed by federal government attorneys that I had violated a regulation involving my business. Although I truly believed that the regulation did not apply to the situation I had been involved in, I nonetheless realized that government lawyers could conclude otherwise. Therefore, I called Atlanta criminal defense lawyer Howard Weintraub. Over the past several years, I had been Howard’s client for civil matters and he always accomplished successful resolutions of the particular matter. There was no doubt that Howard Weintraub and his partner Benjamin Alper were the go-to attorneys for this potential criminal prosecution. After calling Howard, as is his usual and customary style, Howard and Ben immediately jumped into the case. After conferring with me to obtain a detailed understanding of the facts, Howard and Ben researched the federal and state statutes and regulations and they decided that I had not violated any laws. Howard and Ben then very quickly decided to confront the issue head on with federal government attorneys. They therefore brought the issue and my conduct to the attention of the federal government officials rather than waiting for the officials to perhaps someday notify me that I may have violated the law. A gutsy strategy to say the least, but one that I wholeheartedly endorsed as I was innocent of any knowing wrongdoing. The strategy worked brilliantly and I received a clean bill of health from the government. I cannot thank Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper enough for their incredible representation of me. Although their services came with a financial cost to me, Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper are worth every dollar of their fee! I highly recommend Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to anyone in need of highly gifted, aggressive and extremely dedicated lawyers who will fight to protect their clients. Thank you again.

  • A breath of fresh air
    I recently had a civil matter concerning my daughter. She had gotten involved with the wrong crowd, was under age, and 21 year old convicted drug felon guy decided that he was going to harrass her. I tried to work with Fayette county to obtain a restraining order. The only thing I received from Fayette county was a run around. The county was terrible and wouldn't even take the time to speak with me. They insisted that I hire an attorney in order to file for a simple restraining order. I was referred to Mr. Weintraub by a co-worker. Although Mr. Weintraub didn't practice in Fayette county, he took the time to educate me on how the legal process worked. With this knowledge, I was able to call the county and work around their incompetenance and/or lack of concern for taking care of their taxpayer. I was able to obtain a restraining order and the guy has backed away and is leaving us alone. During this process, Howard constantly followed up with me and asked how things were going. His compassion and numerious calls just to check and make sure things were okay and to see if I had any questions was some of the best customer service I have ever received. He genuinely cares about his clients. Once everything was said and done, he wouldn't even take a dime for his much needed assistance. I thank you, Mr. Weintraub, for being a kind, professional and compasionate human being and I am so greatful that you were there for me and my family.

  • THE WEINTRAUB & ALPER TEAM IS PHENOMENAL!
    In reference to my previous review about 5 months ago (Review #103 on Howard's page) I had said that I would update my AVVO review as the case continued. Today I am pleased to say that I am the happiest man alive and that I owe my life and freedom to the Weintraub Team ! It has been a very long 7 months since my arrest, unsure of how my life would end up with this possible felony record hanging over my head. Throughout this time The Weintraub Team has worked tirelessly to get the results desired. A few days ago I received a call from Howard personally explaining to me that he was successful in getting the ADA to drop my case. WOW I was in complete shock ! He never made any promises to me about the case but always reassured me they would fight for me for the best result possible ! That is exactly what the TEAM has done ! I CAN'T POSSIBLY THINK OF A BETTER CHRISTMAS PRESENT AND BY FAR THE PERFECT WAY TO START A NEW YEAR ! Many THANKS go out to Howard, Ben, and Pat ! I don't believe there is another Law Firm out there that is as busy as The Weintraub Team yet stays in contact with their clients and keeps them updated as to the results of their current case as well as these guys do. If you have any question on who to hire for your criminal case, your search ends here ! I highly recommend the The Weintraub & Alper Team ! IT DOESN'T GET BETTER !!!!

  • Ben and Howard are the BEST lawyers in Atlanta!
    In November 2013 I received the phone call , from my son, that no mother wants to receive. It was my 20-year-old, college sophomore, and he had been arrested in a small town in southern Georgia. He was pulled over for speeding and the officer said he smelled marijuana and searched the car. In the search a small amount of marijuana was discovered in one of the passengers back packs. Because no one claimed ownership of the drug all 5 people were arrested for possession and as the driver of the car criminal liability was placed on my son. My son, who is an honors student, athlete and who had never been in trouble before was in jail for marijuana possession. His goal is to work for the State Department after graduating and this arrest could have a devastating impact on his future. We needed a lawyer and we needed a GREAT one! Howard was recommended to us. The arrest happened over a weekend and we called and left a message on Saturday. Sunday morning bright and early Howard called us back. He actually apologized for not speaking to us on Saturday as he was at a family wedding! We talked for close to an hour and needless to say, that phone call left me with a sense of hope that I had not felt in 24 hours. My son, husband and I met with Howard and Ben the next day. They spent a great deal of time getting to know my son and his character. They also discussed, at length, the charges and outlined a plan to get the charges dropped and expunged from his record. There was no guarantee but we left that meeting hopeful and knew we had the best lawyers on our side. Howard and Ben made us feel confident for our son's future. The case dragged on for a year (small time court system) but the whole time Howard and Ben were in touch with us. We were given the best news before Christmas that our son would have to pay a speeding ticket and the drug charges were dropped and would be expunged from his record. He never even had to step foot in court. This happened just in time for him to be able to leave the country, last week, to study abroad for the semester. Howard and Ben you saved our son's future! We are so grateful Thank you!

  • PHENOMENAL CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYERS WHO SAVED ME
    Several months ago, while I was driving my car in Georgia, I was pulled over in the afternoon by a police officer who claimed I had an improper level of tint in my windows. After speaking with me and the passengers in my car and with the officer claiming that he smelled an odor of marijuana, my passengers and I were ordered out of my car. A search of my car then took place and the police found a quantity of marijuana in the trunk, together with a firearm and a weighing scale. Although these items did not belong to me, the officer arrested me and I was facing felony charges of being in possession of a firearm during the commission of a drug offense and possessing marijuana with the intent to distribute. Although my car was occupied with two passengers, the police placed criminal liability on me. As a young college graduate with a promising career ahead of me in the legal profession, I knew that this day had become a life-changing moment for me and I knew that I needed to retain formidable criminal defense lawyers in Atlanta to help me through this crisis. After making the dreaded telephone call from jail to my parents to advise them of my arrest (my first lifetime arrest) my parents searched for a criminal defense lawyer. At approximately 11 p.m. that evening my mother emailed the Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub in Atlanta briefly stating my situation and requesting a call from the attorneys when the office opened the next day. To my parents’ amazement and relief, they received a telephone call from Attorney Howard Weintraub himself within a few minutes from when the email had been sent! Howard Weintraub spoke with my parents concerning the legal procedure that I was facing and he took great care at the midnight hour to allay their fears and anxiety. Mr. Weintraub discussed with my parents the law concerning vehicle stops and vehicle searches, and discussed other matters with them. Mr. Weintraub also commiserated with my parents about the devastating impact of the arrest on my future career and he offered relief to my parents by generating a plan – if it worked – that would enable me to forgo a conviction and have the arrest expunged from my record. Although he was careful not to guarantee this result, he was hopeful that he could pull it off. Guess what? Howard Weintraub and his partner Benjamin Black Alper pulled it off! Howard and Ben hit the ground running the next day after I made bail and was released from jail. First, Ben and Howard met with me in their midtown Atlanta office for a conference that took several hours. At this meeting, Ben and Howard went through the facts of my case in painstaking detail. They also took the time and effort to learn about me and my background so that they could explain to the prosecutor that I was not a criminal. After the meeting I felt relieved and I was so thankful to have not one but two smart and tough lawyers in my corner. Howard and Ben routinely kept in touch with me about my case and their progress. Howard and Ben explained that the first step would be to get the felony charges reduced to misdemeanor charges. The prosecutors initially offered to let me plead guilty to the felony charges with a sentence of five years of probation. Howard and Ben would not accept that. After a few more rounds of negotiations, Howard and Ben convinced the prosecutor to drop the charges to misdemeanors. A second prosecutor then came onto my case and offered to let me plead guilty to the misdemeanors with a sentence of one year probation. Howard and Ben would not accept that. After further negotiations and a lengthy presentation to the prosecutors about my character and background, Howard and Ben convinced the prosecutors to let me resolve my case by entering a pretrial diversion program, allowing the charges to be totally dismissed and the arrest expunged from my record: the best possible outcome!!!

  • Grateful in NYC
    Two months ago, I called The Law offices Of Howard J. Weintraub with a very heavy heart. My younger brother, my only brother had been picked up in New York City for Violation Of Probation. He was subsequently extradicted to Georgia where the original conviction took place. My family and I didn't know where to turn as we live in NYC and were not familiar with any law firms in the Atlanta area. I spoke to several Atlanta attorneys - and then, I spoke to Howard Weintraub. Within 10 minutes, I knew this was the man my family and I wanted to represent my brother. I was so impressed with his sense of professionalism and his proposed strategy that I was confident he would prevail. My brother was facing serious prison time as this was his third arrest for the same criminal offense. The D.A. not only wanted a considerable amount of incarceration (up to 10 years) but he was determined to place a felony on my brother's record that would follow him for a lifetime. Howard communicated his strategy to me in detail. He made no false promises but his plan for my brother's defense was brilliant. My confidence and trust in him have proven to be right. Not only did my brother not get prison time but after the firm's presentation, the judge decided not to place a felony on his record. My family and I are very grateful to the law firm of Howard J. Weintraub. They truly deserve the excellent ratings they receive. Howard Weintraub kept us informed and calm. He has a wonderful sense of humor and a total lack of pretention but when it comes to defending his clients, he knows how to go for the jugular. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who wants the best defense possible. Thank you Howard.

  • Howard Weintraub is the Gold Standard
    As a former attorney, I have know many lawyers. Mr. Weintraub's knowledge of the law, the local legal community are unsurpassed in the Atlanta area. Further, Howard's ethics, honesty, dedication and concern for his clients, are unparalleled. Long after my need for legal assistance was over, Howard still checks on me from time to time, much like an brother would. I would recommend his services to anyone in need of counsel. Lastly, I would like to say," The Chief knows both sides!"

  • Howard Weintraub is a formidable, honest and caring lawyer.
    My daughter recently became embroiled in civil litigation concerning a very large sum of money that she received through a business venture engaged in a few years earlier. This matter involved several hundreds of thousands of dollars and my daughter was facing certain financial hardship if she would lose this litigation and would then be ordered by the court to return the money. I was aware of Mr Weintraub's reputation as an exceptional lawyer. Although this was a civil case and Mr Weintraub is a Criminal Defense Attorney, my daughter wanted Mr. Weintraub to represent her. We asked him to consider taking on our case, and he did not hesitate for a moment. Within two days of commencing his representation,Mr. Weintraub fully analyzed all the pertinent facts and documents and all the legal defenses available for my daughter. He also designed a very sound strategy that would enable her to prevail and retain the large sum of money in question. This strategy proved to be successful and because of Mr. Weintraub's excellent skills, my daughter has not been required to return even one dollar!! We are so grateful to Attorney Weintraub for helping us. We found Mr. Weintraub to be extremely professional, courteous, empathetic, and most importantly, extremely knowledgeable. Also, contrary to the belief that lawyers are out only for the money, Mr. Weintraub was not at all driven by the money, and his fee arrangement was very fair. He never promised that we would be victorious, but he did promise that he would do everything in his power to help my daughter. He kept us informed at each stage of the proceedings and delivered on his promise. I highly recommend Howard Weintraub to anyone needing a formidable advocate who is an honest and caring lawyer.

  • Knowledgable caring and supportive - great Criminal Defense Lawyer
    Last year a man I was dating unsuspecting was convicted with a felony. It was a serious offense that would dramatically affect his life and result in jail time. I contacted Howard Weintraub to see if he could help my friend who was frightened and confused about how to proceed.. Mr. Weintraub spoke to him and his family and explained much of the procedural information that the family needed in order to make decisions about how to proceed. He spent a great deal of time without any financial renumeration. We are grateful that Mr Weintraub calmed our fears and helped guide us in the right direction. I would not hesitate to call on him if we needed an extremely smart, capable and kind attorney who knows the law inside and out.

  • Howard Weintraub rescued my grandson.
    Howard Jarrett Weintraub rescued my grandson from having a felony conviction on his record and his fee was very reasonable to have my grandson come out of his criminal prosecution without a felony on his record. My grandson was stopped by the county police for a broken tail light. The officer searched his car and found a small amount of marijuana and an unmarked bottle of narcotic controlled substance pills. My grandson did not know the bottle of pills was in his car. My husband was a chronic pain sufferer and carried a bottle of his pain medicine with him at all times. He carried his pain medicine in an unmarked bottle due to past experiences with having his medicine stolen. My grandson, his daughter and my husband had been to a store and rather than carry the medicine into the store, my husband put the bottle in the glove box of my grandson’s car. My husband forgot (which was not out of character for him) to remove the bottle when they returned home. My grandson was indeed guilty of possessing the marijuana (a misdemeanor), but he was not guilty of possessing the controlled substance pills. The controlled substance pills would have created a felony on my grandson’s record and he was charged with having the unmarked bottle of controlled substance pills in his possession. Because of Howard’s quick thinking and perseverance that did not happen. At first, the prosecutor would not agree to dismiss the felony charge. Howard, however, worked with my grandson and instructed my husband to get a prescription list from his pharmacy and Howard had him write a statement for the court stating that the medication belonged to him, explaining why the bottle was left in my grandson’s car and explaining why he had them in an unmarked bottle. Because of Howard’s attention to details and his plan of action the felony charge was dismissed and my grandson does not have a felony on his record. Although Howard Weintraub handles many major federal prosecutions throughout the country and defends many people for serious charges such as murder, drugs, sexual offenses, etc., Howard treated my case as if we were his only client. Every phone call to him was promptly and courteously answered in a very timely manner. As we left the courtroom, several people commented to my grandson and to me that we had made a wise decision in choosing Howard Weintraub to represent my grandson in his case. I highly recommend Howard Jarrett Weintraub and I will be forever very thankful that he handled my grandson’s case. God bless you Howard. Thank you Howard.

  • The most professional, caring, and compassionate attorney that I have known.
    I have known Howard Weintraub both as an employee and as a client. In both experiences, he has been the most professional, caring and compassionate attorney that I have known. In the winter of 2012, my son was in the hospital for having been stabbed by his girlfriend. He was in the hospital's area where patients who are going to be sent to jail are housed. I called Howard in a panic because my son was accused of a crime he did not commit and he was hurt badly in addition. Howard went to the hospital and spoke with my son, eventually managing to get the charges dropped. It was a terrifying experience for my family but Howard was there to walk us through the process, answer all our questions and quiet our fears. I have worked for many attorneys and I have never worked for someone who is as brilliant, compassionate and productive as Howard. He works tirelessly for every client, researching and examining every aspect of their cases. His outcomes are amazing because of the diligent work of Attorney Weintraub and his staff. Howard is highly ethical, knowledgeable, trustworthy and responsible for giving you the best representation money can buy. If you hire Attorney Weintraub you can be assured that you are with the very best attorney.

  • Fantastic Lawyer!
    A very close friend of mine recently was charged with criminal offenses in Georgia and he retained attorneys Howard Jarrett Weintraub and Benjamin Black Alper to represent him. During the course of the case, I came to know Howard very well and it became clear to me that Howard and Ben did a phenomenal job representing their client. The case was extremely challenging because of the personalities of the defendant and the State’s witnesses, including the alleged victim in the case. From first-hand knowledge of observing Howard in his office during his never-ending laborious trial preparation, as well as observing him in the courtroom during an evidentiary hearing, I certainly can attest herein to the resoluteness, endurance, and intestinal fortitude of Howard when it comes to representing his clients. I highly recommend Attorneys Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to anyone in need of tough, yet compassionate, criminal defense lawyers.
  • All of the staff at the Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub are extremely professional.
    As always, all of the staff at the Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub are extremely professional. I must, however, single out one in particular who “voluntarily” worked exceptionally hard for my son’s case functioning through countless hours for 4 years while including us in his work schedule and coming to the aid for my son and I without asking for a single penny! This is “Howard Weintraub.” My belief is that Mr. Weintraub holds firmly to the conviction that if it is worth doing, it is worth doing it right. It is fair to say that without his assistance, I wouldn’t have known what to do; this was in October, 2010. At the time we could not retain Mr. Weintraub as our family attorney due to financial issues; but that didn’t stop him from donating an unlimited amount of concern and energy for my son’s case. His unwavering assistance during our time of need have left a profound effect on me and my family and have restored faith in Humanity. Thank you for your outstanding support!

    I had a civil matter relating to a large amount of money that I was being forced to relinquish. I began researching lawyers who informed me I was dealing with a civil matter. I came upon Howard J Weintraub and though I recognized he was a Criminal Defense Attorney, and knew that my situation was a civil one, I nonetheless contacted Attorney Weintraub to determine if he could help me. I felt vulnerable and afraid that I would have to return the money. He agreed to review the information, contacted the Attorneys handling the situation, and advised me what documents to send, proving that I was not involved and should not be placed at risk. Mr Weintraub followed up with a letter outlining the reasons I should not be part of this and instructed the Attorneys not to contact me again--that anything further, would go through his firm. It has been over two years and they have not contacted me again. I am grateful I found Mr. Weintraub. He made a potentially devastating problem go away. Not only is he a great Criminal Defense Lawyer, but a Civil one too. Thank you. A Grateful Client

  • Great attorney and will fight for you.
    Mr Howard was my attorney in a case this past summer. I had an immediate need for an attorney at the most inconvenient time - on 4th of July. My friends and I combined called over 20 law offices and Mr Howard was the only one to respond immediately to the call. He not only agreed to meet the next day but also drove all the way from Alabama to Georgia to meet in person. It is very impressive to see this kind of commitment to the client and the profession. I was very satisfied with his advice throughout my case and would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a qualified law professional.

  • Our family is so grateful to have Howard and Ben on our side!
    This summer, we called Howard Weintraub on behalf our teenage son. It was a holiday weekend, but we were frantic for answers and information. We were at a loss at what to do. After reading so many positive reviews online, I called Mr. Weintraub’s answering service early on a Sunday morning not expecting a call for days. Despite that it was a holiday weekend, Mr. Weintraub, on hearing our case, reached out to us shortly on that early Sunday morning and spoke with us. Immediately, I knew that we had reached the right lawyers! The team of Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper are the best! Howard and Ben listened carefully to our son’s situation. They understood our concerns and reassured us that they would work hard to have his case dropped. It was immediately transparent from our first meeting that not only is Mr. Weintraub a personable and compassionate person, but very professional in the courtroom as well. Mr. Alper was proactive in the court and excellent in working with us to make sure all our questions were answered. Most importantly we appreciate the time both Howard and Ben took to thoroughly explain and educate our son on the process. During each step, they reached out to us with care to make sure that we were all well prepared. They are wonderful advocates! We are so very grateful to Howard Weintraub and Ben Alper for all they did to have our son’s case dismissed. Our family highly recommends them and can’t say enough at how happy are that we called their office that day!

  • True dedication for his clients!
    Howard & Ben have been very good in communicating with me about my case which is about to go to federal trial next week. I must say that it was a proof of true dedication to his client in that Howard called me multiple times on his own birthday just recently and must have spent half of his Sunday during his birthday preparing for my case. He called multiple times even though it was a holiday weekend and has continually worked hard on my case. He has called the U.S. attorney multiple times to support my case and defend me. He has also caught hidden details that were hard to find in support of my case. There are few other lawyers that will show this type of intense dedication above and beyond the call of duty on a holiday weekend. I recommend him highly because Howard & Ben are truly the best attorneys someone can have if they have criminal charges.

  • Ben is a very capable lawyer!
    Our son was killed three years ago. Ben was instrumental in helping to get us a settlement from the agency responsible for his death. Ben is knowledgeable and has a great personality. We highly recommend him!

  • We love Howard and Ben and recommend them highly.
    In 2011, our son was killed, just because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.....it was a senseless act of homicide that didn't need to happen. Howard and his partner, Ben, got involved to help us get justice for our son. We filed a lawsuit and won a large amount of money. Howard knows the law and he knows how to help you. He is also sympathetic and caring. Nothing will bring back our son, but the wrongdoers were made to pay for what they did. We will forever be grateful to Howard and to Ben.

  • Tough Federal Lawyers!
    I am posting an update on Howard Weintraub and his associate attorney, Benjamin Alper. I hired them in May of this year on a serious & complex federal case. They have both been very hard-working and have communicated with me on all aspects of my complicated case. They have reviewed all the documents they have been able to receive and analyzed them well. I am especially impressed by the numerous court motions they have filed to protect my Constitutional rights. They are a law firm that you should run to if you have an unfortunate criminal allegation because they will be ferocious in defending your rights. They have worked so hard and they are preparing even more energy & work to fight harder against the false allegations that I have been charged with in the case. My family is pleased and grateful for their efforts. I am highly educated and have researched many aspects of the law in my case. I can say that they are on top of this case and are exploring all avenues to mount a vigorous defense. I talked or met with 8 different law firms prior to raising funds to retain an attorney and I am confident I chose the right law firm here !!

  • Ben and Howard lawyers from heaven!
    I was a client of Ben and Howard, and it's two words I have to sum up and describe them both, and that's "amazing men"! Over a year ago I made a silly decision whilst traveling, not from the US, but that 's where I ended up being incarcerated. A couple of days went cross, and I hadn't heard from anyone, because it was international I couldn't even call home, and then one day I got a visit, and it was Ben, I hadn't met or seen this person in my life, but his demeanor was so comforting. About a couple of days later I met Howard, the way that he talked you knew he was experienced, he meant business, and was willing to save my life with everything in him. As we talked the look in his eyes brought me to tears, because it was one of a disappointed dad that was angry, but was going to do whatever it took to see his kid smile again. My mom picked the perfect team for me. I knew it because they generally cared. It was a scary journey through that year, at moments when I wanted to give up and give in, Howard and Ben kept telling me not to, and I kept holding on to their strength and words. God sent us a team of Angels. I would recommend Ben and Howard to anyone. They fought for my life, and now I am back home with my beautiful children and family, like they promised. All I can say is thank you and you guys are the best!

  • Best decision ever!
    I like many parents never thought they would need to hire a criminal lawyer for their child, especially one that never found themselves on the wrong side of the law, not even a speeding ticket. I for other reasons being in law enforcement myself never thought I would require the services of a defense lawyer, after all it was us that put the bad guys/girls in court & would get angry when some slick talking, tongue slinging defense lawyer would get them off or on a lesser sentence. Well last year I needed one of those lawyers and I needed one ASAP for my 24yr old daughter who made one of the most stupid mistakes whilst we were traveling back home to our country through the US. I had to return home without my daughter and find a lawyer in a country we did not live in for her. I came home & used my connections in the legal world for the best lawyers in Atlanta to deal with my daughters situation, because that is where she was arrested. They quickly got back to me with some names, but for some reason after making calls I did not get or feel what I wanted from my conversations with them. I then looked online for highly recommended criminal lawyers in the Atlanta area, and Howard J. Weintraub was one of the names that came up. I opened his web page read what he had to say, then I clicked on his video, so glad I did. It was something about the way he came across that made me reach for my phone and give him a call. At the other end of my phone I found a voice that was assuring, comforting, authoritative and knowledgeable. The most compelling words Howard could have said to me to make it clear Howard J. Weintraub was going to be the lawyer I trusted my daughter with was when he said, "I have a daughter her age, and I am going to fight for her as if she was my own." I knew then I called the right lawyers. I flew to Atlanta to meet with Howard and his team, Ben and Deb. I have to admit Ben looked a bit young to be a lawyer, but my daughter told me on one of our calls that she really liked him that he put her at ease. Immediately they put me at ease, but the one thing I appreciated the most is that they were very honest and upfront with me. I was still in shock over what had taken place, and was dreading seeing my daughter from behind a plexi glass wall, but having Howard take me to the jail in his car that fist day helped me cope. Him and Ben saw in their visits what I already knew, that my daughter was a beautiful young lady, (not talking about just the outside), and that she did not belong in jail. Howard told me those words again that helped me know I made the right choice, "don't worry I am going to take care of her like she was my own." To really show you how great Howard and his team are, I was there on my own, and after we got back from the jail that first meeting Howard asked me if I was staying by myself in a hotel, I said yes, what he did next was amazing. He told me that I could stay with him and his daughter if I wanted, so that I wouldn't have to be alone. Then his paralegal Deb offered me to stay with her and her husband at their home as well if I wanted. I thanked them both for the offer and said I would think about it. The next morning waking up alone in my hotel, realizing I was in a country which I knew no one I decided to take up the offer. I ended up staying with Deb. She and her husband not only opened up their home, but their hearts , and to this day we are friends. They were all amazing making themselves available when I needed them, keeping me updated. My daughter fell in love with them also, calling Howard and Ben her father's away from home and saying they saved her life. Ben ended up being my daughters primary lawyer on her case, but Howard made sure he knew everything that was going on with her. We went through 4 DA's each one tougher than the last, but Ben and Howard were tougher, because they never backed down and fought for her as if she was their own. She is now back home thanks to Ben and Howard.

  • Burglary Charges Dismissed - No Record, No Probation, No First Offender
    I was charged with felony burglary. The Law Offices of Howard J Weintraub got my charges completely dropped and my arrest expunged. There is zero trace of this crime on my record! No probation, no first offender. In addition to delivering the best possible outcome for my case, the Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub provided outstanding service. My calls were always answered or quickly returned. All of my questions were answered honestly and in terms I could understand, and I felt like my case was always important to my lawyer.

  • The Weintraub team is awesome!
    In late May I had a situation arise where I was set up by my soon to be ex at the time, where she made me out to be the aggressor in a domestic dispute which made it look like I physically bodily harmed her. I have no current record what so ever and when I was accused of this in Dekalb county I was charged with aggravated assault. I was extremely worried seeing that this charge can and will ruin my whole life and possibly my future career. It was a Saturday and I was desperate to find a lawyer that could represent me best and keep any charges from going on and ruining my excellent record. I went through 10 or so attorneys in the Atlanta area and most would not even answer my calls, the ones that did told me they could meet with me Monday morning. I work out of state and had to fly out Sunday afternoon. Howard called me back immediately and spoke with me for over 45 min despite it being a weekend and his extremely busy schedule. He made time for me unlike the other attorneys and set up an appointment with me for Sunday morning. There I hired him and Howard , Ben and the Weintraub team have worked tirelessly on my case gathering everything they need to properly fight for me. Howard with his years of experience and knowledge in the legal system and his fighting abilities and Ben with his PR skills taking time with me to make sure he understands everything to properly handle my case, makes a perfect team ! The feeling I get from the Weintraub & Alper team is that I am treated like family and they are there to truly help me and not just get money out of me. The case is not over but the work they have already done gives me the rest I need and lowers my stress level to help me keep my head straight and keep my life on track through this very stressful time. They are in CONTROL and have endless Resorces to help with Criminal Defense situations !!!! Thank you HOWARD , BEN, PAT and all the others that have helped during this time. I will owe my life to this firm forever. If anyone I know is in need of an attorney that will have their back, this team will be my only suggestion. Thank You Thank You

  • An advocate you can trust
    Approximately two years ago I had a bit of trouble for which I needed the professional advice and experience of a counselor. .I sought out four different firms before Howard Weintruab came highly recommended to me. During consolations he listened to my concerns and educated me about my options. I wanted to plead guilty and avoid a lengthy trail.I never felt like he was selling me or wheeling me in.He advised me according to what was in my best interest and I recognized that right away. He gave me a realistic evaluation of what he could do for me and my worst and best case scenario with my plea bargain. My case was a bit complex and all that he did not have an immediate answer for he took his time and followed up with an answer when he was sure of it absolutely. Trouble with the law can be very intimidating. I realized just how much i din’t know and how vulnerable i was when I needed help. I prayed id find an honest person who would not mislead me or take any short cuts with me Howard Weintraub was that guy. Howard Weintruab was an angel by my side through my entire process and I sincerely recommend him to all who like me are looking for an advocate you can trust.

  • We were facing a 15 year mandotory minimum. Howard Weintraub got us 30 months!
    Over two years ago, my finance's home was searched by law enforment and they found a firearm in the home. Due to his prior convictions, my finace was eventually charged with being a felon in possesion of a firearm. I immediately began searching for the right attorneys to defend him and I am so grateful I found Howard and Ben. Howard And Ben immediately were able to begin helping me with my case. They realized right away that due to my fiances prior convictions, he was looking at what was a potential madatory minimum sentence of fifteen years. I could not believe my fiance was facing such a harsh reality if he was convicted. Howard and Ben filed numerous motions challenging the search of my fiance's home. When the first judge disagreed with them following a hearing, Howard and Ben appealed that decision and got the first Judge reversed and us a new hearit ngbefore the second hearing the procesutor disclosed lots of information that should have been turned over months before. Howard and Ben filed so many motions they practically buried the govenment procesuter in paper.! . Finally , we reached a resolution where my fiance was sentenced to only 30 months. To go from looking at a mandatory 180 months to only 30 months sentence was truley remarkable. My finace will be home by Christmas and it is all thanks to the hard work and dedication of Howard and Ben. If you need a criminal defense attorney that will fight the government every step of the way, then you need to hire Howard and Ben!

  • Great defense team!
    I was arrested in February 2013 on suspicion of DUI and possession of Marijuana. I did not consent to a breathalyzer test when arrested. This not being the first time I had been arrested for DUI, I knew I had to find a great lawyer to defend my rights. I located Howarded via avvo.com and left a voicemail on a Sunday afternoon and he responded to my call within minutes. This was greatly reassuring that I had found the right lawyer as he and Ben always made themselves available when I had any questions or concerns. I met with Howard the following day at his office where he went through in great detail the facts and circumstances of my arrest. He was even familiar with the arresting officer. As far as cost goes, Howard let me know exactly the cost of your defense so there were no financial suprises throughout my case. I was able to continue driving prior to my court date as Howard and Ben were able to reach an agreement with the Officer at the administrative hearing. This was very important as I have to drive a good distance to get to and from work. When my day in court arrived Ben was able to reach a plea agreement with the prosecutor and reduced my DUI to wreckless driving. As this would have a 2nd DUI, Ben's negotiations may have saved my job and relieved a great strain on my marriage! I had to do 1 weekend in jail and 1 year of supervised probation, which I am gladly in the process of completing. I highly recommend Howard and Ben, who make a great legal team and made this proces as painless as possible!

  • The Only Law Firm You'll Ever Need!
    Howard Weintraub Law office is a great firm to have on your side. If you are EVER in the need of a Criminal Defense Attorney this is definitely with no doubt who you want! Howard and Ben are very knowledgeable. Howard is very personable but most of all very professional and I loved having him on my side. His knowledge of the law was very impressive and his resources seemed endless. I would and will recommend Howard Weintraub’s law firm to all my family and friends but most of all to anyone in the area in need of the best legal team on their side! All charges against me were dismissed due to Howard and Ben’s relentless pursuit of my case. I hope I never need to use an attorney again but if I do Howard Weintraub’s Law Office will be the first and only call I make! When I was arrested I felt so violated from being put in the position I was in, but with Howard and Ben’s superior knowledge of the law as well as their OUTSTANDING ability to vigorously argue in my defense, the trial was over before it even started. The evidence was so strong against me; I even began to second guess myself. Lastly, Howard took away nearly all of the stress and fear that came with being charged with a crime. He was worth every penny because he kept me informed, never judged me. I have never trusted attorneys’ due to the fact I worked with them closely for 16 years. I have heard their “behind the door comments” about their clients. I have watched and heard them “play” with their cases that weren’t in the best interest of their clients. God directed my family to this firm after talking with multiple lawyers first. You will not go wrong with this firm!!! They treat you more like family and not like their client.

  • The Weintraub Firm helped me avoid misdemeanor theft charges entirely
    In 2013 I was wrongfully accused of misdemeanor theft by a former employer. I had never been in trouble with the law before and was left stunned when I learned that the police were looking for me. In a matter of a day I lost my job, my apartment and my clean record. It was truly the worst moment of my life. I immediately researched defense lawyers local to Atlanta and contacted Howard Weintraub after reading glowing online reviews of the Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub. Howard Weintraub contacted me personally immediately after applying that night. Howard heard my story and immediately offered advice and guidance. While he was out of town doing defense work in New York, he assigned Ben Alper to my case. Ben actually met with me on a holiday weekend in Atlanta at their office to go over my case. He attempted to contact the officer investigating my case and negotiate a deal where I would not have to submit to an arrest warrant, but the officer refused. Ben advised me to turned myself into the police ASAP and had an advocate monitor my situation and keep my family informed of my status as I was booked. I made bail and was released the next day. Previously to this experience, Howard and Ben were constantly calling me over the holiday weekend to make sure I was okay and advised me to the letter what to do or not do, what to say or not say, and apologized that the situation had gone that way, even though it was beyond their control. I felt like I had a great defense team in my corner and the jail experience, while not pleasant, was brief. Over the next six to seven months, Ben and I worked closely to gather evidence and affidavits from co-workers attesting to my innocence. Ben presented this evidence to the prosecution and convinced them to allow for Diversion, which allowed the case to be dropped without me making a plea or incurring any official charges. I completed an online shoplifting program, registered my normal volunteering as community service and paid a few small fees to the court and was let off with a nolle prosequi as part of the deal. I was left with an arrest on my record, but the agreement allowed for expungement of the arrest to happen automatically after I was processed out. At the end of the entire series of events, I walked away with no charges, no prison time and no trace of this event on my record. As Ben said, "It was like it never happened." I owe it to Ben for recommending this path to me, as he advised that it was the smartest move. I feel that was an accurate assessment, and truly believe he has a savviness about the court system that comes from someone who does their Law homework. Overall, I was very pleased with the services, discussions and representation that Ben gave me. Whenever I had to make an appearance in court, Ben always managed to make the process as painless and quick as possible, which I am grateful for. No one who is innocent until proven guilty should have to spend hours in a court room while surrounded by strangers, and Ben prevented that from happening multiple times by ensuring we were always in and out promptly and the first to leave if present with a large group of defendants. Ben was always pleasant to talk to and seemed to actually care about my well-being. When I had a question about situations that extenuated from the chaos this situation caused me, he heard me out and offered advice and suggestions that helped me. He was also able to make recommendations for private investigators and further legal help that proved substantial. For these reasons I recommend Ben Alper and the Weintraub Firm. They are willing to work with short notice and do their best to keep you safe in the initial, hectic times an unexpected criminal charge or arrest warrant can bring. They follow through on the matter and will keep in touch with you even after their services are complete. You can't really ask for more.

  • Mr. Weintraub is a very kind and super federal defense lawyer!
    I was indicted on some Federal charges. I wish to not reveal the specifics since the case is ongoing. I found Mr. Howard Weintraub on the AVVO site. I called him and he met me in his office on a Sunday !! I had to wait 2 months for my family to accumulate the funds to retain him and he still called me and always accepted my calls even though he had not been paid yet. He must have spent over 25 hours talking to me about my case not even knowing if he could be retained !! He has been very understanding and very kind as well as extremely knowledgeable about complicated rules & cases of Federal law... I just can not say enough good things about this lawyer's care & dedication for his clients. I would then have to write a short book about his great & humane qualities. He has now been officially retained by my family. The case is serious and I have been very worried and upset that these charges are unfair because other people in my past committed the actual crimes. I have been accused of alleged conspiracy among other crimes. I have complete FAITH that Mr. Howard Weintraub will spare no effort and will spend incredible amounts of time & energy to gain either dismissal or acquittal of my case. This is a rare super-lawyer in today's world because of his intelligence & dedication and his amazing ability to be reached at any time of the day. He always keeps me informed and I can reach him on his personal cell phone !!! You should NEVER get in legal trouble with the Federal Govt. !!! However if you get in any kind of local or federal legal trouble, then RUN to his office and get him on the case ASAP !!! He is worth every dollar and even more valuable in his human qualities. I highly recommend him and I am very THANKFUL that he is my attorney right now...

  • Howard Weintraub and Banjamin Alper are fantastic criminal defense lawyers!
    I have been charged in two Georgia Superior Courts with felony fraud prosecutions. I retained The Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub, P.C. and the firm's team of accomplished Atlanta criminal defense lawyers Howard Jarrett Weintraub and Benjamin Black Alper. As to my felony prosecution of income tax evasion, my attorneys convinced the prosecutor to dismiss my case! As to my other fraud case, that case is still ongoing but I know that I am in the best hands I can ever have prayed for. These attorneys are very compassionate, are always available to discuss my two cases (now the remaining one case) with my parents and me, and are completely dedicated to do their very best for their clients. If you need great criminal defense lawyers I strongly urge you to hire Howard

  • Howard Weintraub and Banjamin Alper saved me from a long prison sentance!
    A few years ago I was in dire financial straits and made terrible decision to defraud my employer of several hundreds of thousands of dollars. Having never been in trouble previously, I now found myself being prosecuted by the State of Georgia Attorney General’s Office. Luckily, while I was in jail, my mother contacted The Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub, P.C. and attorneys Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper. As soon as they were on the case, they came out to see me and worked quickly to get me out of jail on bond. I reviewed online similar cases to my own and realized that similar defendants were getting as much as 15 years in prison for the same type of crimes that I was charged with. Howard and Ben worked tirelessly to review all of the evidence in my case and keep me informed as to what was going on. After long and repeated negotiations with the Assistant Attorney General prosecuting my case, Howard and Ben were able to get me a sentence of only 4 years in prison. They even convinced the Judge to let me stay out of jail FOR A WHOLE YEAR before serving my sentence so that I could take care of my children. I couldn’t believe it! I am so grateful to Howard and Ben! They are two amazing attorneys that will go the extra mile to help out their clients.

  • The team of attorneys Howard Jarrett Weintraub and Benjamin Alper saved my life!
    Attorneys Howard Jarrett Weintraub and Benjamin Black Alper saved my life. In 2012, I had made a terribly stupid decision with another person to distribute kilograms of cocaine. Before this extremely foolish decision I had never been in trouble. In fact, the only violation I had ever done was running a stop sign. At the time I decided to distribute cocaine I was employed by the United States Postal Service as a mailman. The way the cocaine was to be transported to Georgia was to have my drug trafficking partner ship the cocaine from California in packages addressed to fictiously named persons at genuine home addresses on my mail route. The plan was that I would see the packages in my mail delivery bin and I would retrieve the packages before I left the post office building for my daily delivery of the mail and I would at the end of my work shift hand deliver the packages to the other person in Georgia. In 2012 I was arrested by federal law enforcement officials. Somehow my granmother through her prayers to God, guided me to Attorney Howard Jarrett Weintraub and Attorney Benjamin Black Alper. When I first met with Attorneys Weintraub and Alper, part of our discussion included my attorneys advising me that under the United States Sentencing Guidelines and the criminal federal drug statutes I was looking at a mandatory minimum sentence of 60 months and a possible maximum sentence of 97 months. Under the brilliant and vigorously fought representation by Attorney Weintraub and Attorney Alper, where my attorneys won all three of their critically important objections to the Presentence Investigation Report, I was sentenced to just 12 months and 1 day in prison! This meant that I would serve no more than 10 months and 7 days of incarceration! If anyone had told me when I got arrested that instead of a maximum of 97 months Attorneys Weintraub and Alper would get me a sentence of only 10 months and 7 days I would think they were out of their mind. Now, I am telling anyone who needs a great criminal defense team that if you are charged with any federal or state criminal offense you must hire Attorney Howard Jarrett Weintraub and Attorney Benjamin Black Alper. They are miracle workers who really saved my life and I am confident they would do the same for anyone else facing a criminal prosecution. Thank you Howard and Ben! God bless the both of you!

    I remain delighted to have had Mr. Weintraub and Mr. Alper represent me in my DUI case. Not only are they both clever and caring, I deeply admire them for their candidness. These two were a breeze work with. They are communicative, dependable, and each possesses the ability to put anyone at ease during the most taxing of times. From the start, they spent an immeasurable amount of time and effort on my case and offered me nothing short of the best advice for a person in my position: advice of which would later make a great impression on the judge and offer me the best possible outcome, given the circumstances. I am grateful I chose them to perform on my behalf and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal representation.

  • Outstanding Attorney
    Howard is an amazing lawyer. We've been dealing with our particular legal issue for years. After it was mishandled by previous attorneys, we finally came to Howard's office in very dire circumstances that required fast, aggressive, and thorough action. He delivered on all of these and more. Our case seemed hopeless and even making bail seemed like an impossibility. It felt like we had been thrown around by the prosecution and had no recourse whatsoever but Howard really knew his way around the drug charges that we were faced with. The prosecution had over a year from when they started acquiring evidence and building a case against my family. but Howard built a stronger case for the bond hearing within less than a week. The prosecution initially moved to deny bail for my family on the basis of their allegedly "strong" evidence but Howard was able to build a remarkably stronger argument within a few days of even being on the case. He was able to get my family members out on bail- which felt like a huge victory in light of how hopeless things were before we hired him. It's reassuring to know that he is on our side and we see this perpetual legal battle finally drawing to a close because of it. He’s a brilliant man and a hard worker that gets the job done.

  • He really cares!
    I have a federal case still ongoing that started in 2009. I contacted Howard for the first time on a Saturday night, he was driving back from SC, he spent two hours with me on the phone LISTENING to my story. He met me the next day with Ben in his office on Sunday. Since that weekend he has been with me every step of the way. From my personal experience I can tell you both Howard and Ben will go above and beyond the norm in order to defend you. I recently had a two day hearing and was so proud to say Howard and Ben were my Lawyers. They are not intimidated by the Government attorneys nor their expert witnesses. Bottom line they will fight for you like you were family! I speak to Howard quite frequently on the phone, not just about my case but about life, family etc.. Again he cares! So to sum it it up, I am proud I am being represented by Howard and Ben and no matter how my case ends up I will know They did everything they could to help me and my family! I would recommend them 100% not just because they are good! but because they care.

  • Faced 10 YEARS...Served 2 HOURS!
    My case began in the summer of 2007, and the investigation by the Feds was complete in 2012, which resulted in a Federal Felony Indictment with my name on it. In the fall of 2010, I received a “target” letter from the US Attorney’s Office which basically said the US Government is going to indict you unless you come in and plead guilty. I called several lawyers and picked one based on what I thought I could afford. That attorney had convinced me he was going to fight for my rights and freedom, but as soon as I paid him he told me I needed to “man up” and plead guilty to the Felony Charges. I knew I needed a different attorney. My gut told me that if I could find the right Attorney there was a very small chance I could get a better outcome than going to prison. I searched the internet relentlessly and found Ben and after speaking with him I knew that he was the Attorney I needed to defend me from the 10 years in prison I was facing. Without a doubt hiring Ben was the best decision I could have made to protect my rights and freedom. When Ben handed me over 2,000 pages of evidence against me I thought it was the end of the road. On the other hand, Ben saw it as an opportunity to mount a defense that would ultimately get the indictment DISMISSED. Ben isn’t afraid to fight the Government every step of the way and based on my experience you cannot afford to step in the courtroom without him. Here I am almost two years later with my freedom, no Felony conviction, and my life back. Ben made all of this possible for me and I’m forever grateful.

  • Howard Weintraub was God sent
    I was locked up with a mountain of false accusations . My retained attorneys were playing games. My children linked with Howard, explained everything to him. He saw the entire picture, understood what was going on and worked with my family. He had me released on bond. He accomplished more in three days than my previous retained attorneys did in an entire year. It feels great to have an attorney who believes you. I will gladly recommend to anybody that needs a good attorney.

  • Simply amazing!
    We have worked with several lawyers in the past but none of them even compare to what Howard has done. When we happened upon him we were in a very precarious situation to say the least, and we were very pressed for time. 1) Howard, before we even working with him officially, sat us down went over the circumstances so that we were informed of everything that was even going on. From my experience that almost never happens. 3) A lot of lawyers will do this thing when they ,forgive my language, talk out of their ass about things they know nothing about, and try to make you feel their doing more than they are actually doing to justify their cost. Howard, if you ever meet him, is very upfront and honest with you,..no surprises...no talking sideways or seemingly hidden agendas and all he asks for, in this regard, as that you do the same with him. Honestly this was probably what made us feel the most at ease initially. You don't want to work with someone ,whose work can shape your future, to be wishy-washy or half baked. 4) We knew things happened before our previous lawyer and "things happened" he was no where to be seen...we couldn't reach him for 5 or 6 hours at a time...He didn't do anything in the year that he'd been hired. There's nothing worse than needing some one you hired..and realizing that they aren't there. Howard on the other hand kept us up to date with all of the developments as they unfolded. and when he needed something we gave it to him asap. in short...He did more in 2 weeks...than any attorney did in the past year. 6) In the courtroom he clearly puts his money where his mouth is.He does his due diligence and does not try to "promise you the world" or anything but I guarantee you this...you want this guy batting for you when it comes to legal affairs....I never once...in my life thought about having a " go to attorney" but He...might just be that guy. Sometimes when you pay an attorney it feels like you're pouring money down the drain but NOT with Howard...you;re definitely getting your money's worth...AND THEN SOME

  • Howard and his team are THE gold standard.
    It is both frightening and infuriating when the government decides, without any proof, that they WANT you to be guilty. It is at this point that the difference between a highly skilled attorney and one who just practices law becomes patently apparent and critical. That said, Howard and his team are amazing. From the moment Howard was called, he hit the ground running and has never let up (the case is still ongoing). He handles many cases simultaneously (as any successful firm would), but this would never be known from the high level of attention and responsiveness he exhibits. There is never a problem getting in contact with him. If he is unavailable, he returns calls as soon as he can. In regards to his skill as a defense attorney, I could spend all day talking about it. Instead, I'll say this: he and his team only had this case for a few days at the time of the bond hearing. During that hearing, he mounted a defense so thorough, air-tight, and effective that the lead prosecutor got up and said "I'm confused", shortly followed by "everything he said is correct". She then proceeded to fumble her words as she simply couldn't do/say anything to counter Howard's skill. Needless to say, Howard amazed everyone in the courtroom that day (much to the prosecutor's chagrin). The long and short of it is this: Howard and his team are prodigiously talented. To an equal extent, he truly cares about the freedom and rights of his clients and defends them with nothing less than his all. If ever one finds themselves in legal trouble, calling Howard parallels closing your eyes when you sneeze: it should happen without a second thought.

  • 3rd DUI
    Over three years ago I was arrested for my third DUI this time with an accident. I hired Howard and Ben two years ago when it came up for trial. They were incredible. They told me that this was not going to be easy and made no promises of a great resolution. They told me some things that I could do to improve my chances. One of these was wearing a ankle monitor, which I wore for a year. I took all the classes/treatment/AA meetings they suggested. When it finally came up for court, the prosecutor reduced the DUI to reckless driving, no jail, no suspended license, a fine, a list of classes (which thanks to Howard and Ben, I've already done) and 1 year probation. I can not recommend this team enough. Through it all they were always available, whether by phone or email, and would respond quickly. If you need a lawyer do not hesitate to call Howard.

  • Thanks Howard!
    One of the poorer choices I have made in life (driving after drinking) was thankfully followed by one of the best decisions I could have made: retaining the law firm of Howard J. Weintraub. I received truly outstanding professional advice and support through a stressful and trying experience. When I had a question, communication was fast and detailed and Howard made it clear that he was always happy to discuss my case. I will also say that the entire staff at the firm were supportive and genuinely caring. They obviously fully understand the legal processes but also that you are a human being in the midst of a challenging situation. Howard's partner negotiated with the prosecutor and my potential DUI was reduced to a reckless driving charge. He also made sure that I had completed all the requirements in the plea as determined by the prosecutor ahead of the court date, so no probation. A DUI would have had a devastating professional and personal impact so this was a great outcome. Also worth noting that the judge actually asked in the courtroom if I realized that my attorney had worked out a great deal for me. Yes, I certainly did. Thank you, Howard!

  • He will fight for you until the very end!
    Howard represented me during a criminal case that could have landed me in jail for 10 years. Knowing this, it was imperative to have the best criminal defense attorney and after my first conversation with Howard, I knew he was the one! From the start, he was very informative and spent an incredible amount of time detailing what I should expect in the months to come. He was very upfront anout the possible outcomes of my case, none of which seemed appealing at the time, but he said he would do everything in his power to keep me out of prison. He did just that and, although the odds were stacked against me, he kept his promise and worked his legal "magic" to persuade the District Attorney and tje judge to sentence me only to probation and did so under the first offender umbrella. So, when I complete all of the terms of my probation, I can have my record expunged. Howard, along with his amazing colleague, Ben Alper and his extremely compassionate assistant, Debby, made an awful and extremely scary situation much better than I could have ever hoped for. The three of them, with Howard's leadership are, in my mind and heart, the true "Dream Team". Howard and his team will absolutely work tirelessly on getting you the best outcome for your case and they do it with heart. I hope to never need the services of a criminal defense attorney again, but if I do, he is my only choice. He is amazing and his team is amazing!

  • The best criminal defense attorney around!
    I have had Ben Alper represent me in two unrelated cases. During both cases, I worked closely with him and, because of his vast wealth of knowledge and his dedication to the cases, I could not have had better outcomes in both instances. Ben really cares about his clients and stays in communication throughout the duration of his cases. Even when there is nothing new to report, he checks on you to see how you're doing. He also has a very calm demeanor which I, personally, found comforting during the very stressful times during my cases. But don't let his calm demeanor and youthful looks fool you. He is a bulldog in the courtroom when he needs to be. There were, literally, times when he got going and I wanted to cheer for him! He was fierce! I cannot say enough good things about him. If you are ever in the unenviable position of needing a criminal defense attorney, call Ben. He will make it his mission to get the absolute best outcome for your case.

  • Great Defense Lawyer - DUI/Possession
    I was arrested in February 2013 on suspicion of DUI and possession of Marijuana. I did not consent to a breathalyzer test when arrested. This not being the first time I had been arrested for DUI, I knew I had to find a great lawyer to defend my rights. I located Howard and Ben via avvo.com and left a voicemail on a Sunday afternoon and my call was responded to within minutes. This was greatly reassuring that I had found the right lawyer as Howard and Ben always made themselves available when I had any questions or concerns. I met with Howard and Ben the following day at his office where he went through in great detail the facts and circumstances of my arrest. They were even familiar with the arresting officer. As far as cost goes, Howard and Ben let me know exactly the cost of your defense so there were no financial surprises throughout my case. I was able to continue driving prior to my court date as Howard and Ben were able to reach an agreement with the Officer at the administrative hearing. This was very important as I have to drive a good distance to get to and from work. When my day in court arrived Ben was able to reach a plea agreement with the prosecutor and reduced my DUI to reckless driving. As this would have a 2nd DUI, Ben's negotiations may have saved my job and relieved a great strain on my marriage! I had to do 1 weekend in jail and 1 year of supervised probation, which I am gladly in the process of completing. I highly recommend Ben and Howard, who make a great legal team and made this proces as painless as possible!

  • 2 Count Federal Felony Indictment DISMISSED!
    Mr. Weintraub is an extremely talented, aggressive and compassionate attorney. My case started in 2007, and after 5 years of investigation by several different agencies I was indicted with a two count felony indictment by a Federal Grand Jury. To this day it still amazes me how Mr. Weintraub was able to convince the Government to dismiss the indictment in exchange for a misdemeanor plea. He even convinced the prosecution to recommend an unsupervised probation and allow me to travel outside the United States in order to continue to serve in the US military. My case originated in Iraq during the peak of the war and the Military has been aggressively pursuing prosecutions and convictions regardless of the facts. If I had been convicted of any felony it would have ended my 13 year career, but Mr. Weintraub was adamant that he wasn’t going to let the Government do that to me without a fight. When I was searching for attorneys in the Atlanta area I read several posts about Mr. Weintraub on this site and I was leery of the truthfulness behind the situations, but I’m living proof that this man will leave no stone unturned and will fight your case with relentless aggressiveness. Not only did I get my life back, but I gained a friend for life and I highly encourage you to look no further because no one is going to fight for your freedom like Mr. Weintraub.

  • Absolutely Fantastic Attorney
    In life, it doesn't matter if you are competent, wealthy, healthy, or if you have opportunities when you are not lucky. In my life, fortunately, I could count on luck many times and one of those times was when I was referred to Howard Weintraub and his team, Debbie and Ben. After that I didn't need to worry about any of my problems, they were all solved! Howard is a fantastic criminal attorney with much experience in all levels. He is not intimidated by anyone, any judge. Not only is he there to take care of you, Debbie and Ben are there for you as well. Debbie is incredibly good also and will assist you with all legal and emotional support needed. She will make sure you will do and provide all documents necessary for your case and even after, if you end on probation or some kind of agreement that you made in court, she will help and make sure you did everything correct and on time until you accomplished all the steps and close your case. Ben is also a fantastic attorney, still young, but he has Howard leading him and giving him all his experience which gives you another fact you don't have anywhere, you have Howard two times. Another fact that makes Howard Weintraub Law Office the best, is that they are independent, so you are not "dealing" with a corporate office treating you like "a number" and charging you to "walk inside their own office, with Howard you know at the first meeting how much will be the cost, how long will probably take to resolve your case and a "good guess" of how it will end. Believe me, it happens exactly as you are told, no less, no more, no BS. Another fact that is very important to me, no matter if it's day or night, you need Howard, you have Howard. My wife called him once, when I had a situation, and left him a message at the office around 11pm on a holiday. Guess what? Howard called her in less then 5 minutes and, before anything, he spent a good amount of minutes calming her down, understanding what happened and began preparing to take action to provide the best assistance I needed. Where could I have the same? I don't know... Today Howard, Debbie and Ben became my friends, more than that, they are like family. As the best professionals I know here, if I need them, they will be there again taking care of their client.

  • The best possible outcome!
    January 18, 2013 My wife and I engaged Howard and his partner Ben to defend our adult son who had been charged with two felony counts as a result of a bar fight. Our son was not the assailant, but police charged him nevertheless because the other party was injured (as a result of his own actions). Conflicting witness testimony complicated our son's defense. The Assistant DA was insistent upon jail time (with multiple years required to be served!), but Howard was able to negotiate a plea that resulted in probation requiring weekends on home confinement and community service--far preferable to rolling the dice before a jury, given the conflicting witnesses. As a first offender, our son's record will be expunged of this charge upon the successful completion of his probation.

  • Howard Weintraub did a great job defending my son in three separate cases!
    I highly recommend Howard Weintraub to anyone in need of a great criminal defense lawyer. Howard Weintraub defended my son in two separate DUI cases with excellent results in both cases. Most significantly, one of the cases was disposed of with Howard Weintraub resolving it in such a way that the DUI conviction is not reflected on my son’s permanent record. A year or so after the second DUI was resolved, my son got involved in a physical altercation with his then girlfriend. Howard Weintraub got the domestic violence matter dismissed. Importantly, Howard again was successful in having my son’s permanent record not reflect any arrest entry or disposition for the domestic violence allegation. Over the three years that Howard Weintraub has been representing my son, I feel as though he has taken my son under his care and Howard has treated my son as if he was Howard’s own child. Being a single parent, this was very important to me. I strongly stand behind the talents and dedication of Howard Weintraub and his staff. I strongly urge anyone needing a tenacious criminal defense lawyer to hire Howard Weintraub.

  • DUI reduced to Reckless Driving - Thanks to Mr. Howard Weintraub and Mr. Ben Alper
    I was arrested for DUI in May 2012. I was a full refusal and did not blow into the breathalyzer. Mr Howard Weintraub and Mr Ben Alper represented me through the 3 month process and were able to reduce my charge to reckless driving. This was especially challenging because the prosecutor did not want to "award full refusals". Yet, after exposing flaws in the police report and working with the prosecution, my charge was reduced. I appreciated their honesty, availability, and diligence throughout the whole process. I would recommend this firm to anyone in a similar situation.

  • The best lawyer ever!
    While I was employed as a desk clerk in a hotel, I sold to another person credit card information of the hotel customers. I was indicted for this crime and charged in federal court. Several years ago, my brother had gotten into similar financial fraud trouble and he hired attorney Howard Weintraub to defend him in his federal prosecution. Mr. Weintraub obtained a fantastic result for my brother so my family and I again turned to Mr. Weintraub to represent me in my federal case. Mr. Weintraub and his associate Benjamin Alper did a phenomenal job representing me. Under the federal sentencing guidelines I was facing almost two years in prison and Mr. Weintraub got me a sentence of straight probation, with no home confinement or any other form of incarceration. Howard Weintraub saved my brother several years ago and he now again has saved me. Through the efforts of Mr. Weintraub and Mr. Alper I can now begin my new bakery business and I can move forward with my life. I thank God for directing my brother and me to Howard Weintraub. God answered our prayers for delivering to us an attorney who could help us. My brother and I both strongly recommend Howard Weintraub and Ben Alper to any person who needs brilliant, hard fighting criminal defense lawyers, who are totally dedicated to their clients.

  • Highly recommend!
    My 21 year old son was arrested for a DUI that also involved an accident. I was referred to attorney Howard Weintraub to represent my son. Unfortunately, within a few months of this DUI and while Howard and his associate Benjamin Alper were working on their strategy of defending the DUI, my son was arrested for another DUI that also involved an accident. To make matters even worse, my son was arrested for both of these DUI’s by the same police officer! Howard and Ben implemented a trial strategy that resulted in one of the DUI cases being dismissed. Howard and Ben worked relentlessly in negotiating with the prosecutors. My son received a very favorable disposition and he was able to continue to drive to school and to drive to work. Not only did Howard and Ben act as my legal advisors but they both personally became involved in seeing that my son underwent appropriate alcohol dependency treatment. ​As a father who was very much concerned about my son’s cases and future, on many occasions I would seek Howard’s advice by calling his law office as early as 7:00 a.m., leaving messages with his answering service to please have Howard call me back after the office had opened. On every such occasion, including weekends and holidays, Howard would call me back within five minutes of my call to his answering service and I never had to wait for hours until after the office would open for me to hear from Howard. Similarly, if I called late in the evening after the office was closed, Howard would promptly return my call. From what I have heard from other parents with children who have gotten into trouble, they never received such courteous and hands-on treatment from their attorneys. ​Howard and Ben went beyond what I had hoped for in my attorneys. If you are in need of caring, dedicated and highly talented attorneys to defend you or a family member charged with any criminal offense, I highly recommend Howard Weintraub and Benjamin Alper to be your attorneys. Trust me, you will have made the best decision when you hire The Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub.

  • The Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub Saved Me Twice!
    In 2007 I was arrested for DUI in Atlanta. I hired Howard Weintraub to represent me in my case. Without making any promises that my case would be won, Howard was able to have my DUI dismissed: no conviction, no jail, no fine, no loss of license. Howard did a phenomenal job defending me. Four years later I was arrested in Middle Georgia and charged with possessing drugs with the intent to distribute. Again, Howard and his associate, Ben Alper, came to my rescue. Again, without making any promises that my case would be won Howard and Ben were able to have my drug charges dismissed: no conviction, no jail, and no fine. Thanks to The Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub, P.C. I do not have a criminal record and I have kept my freedom from being incarcerated. I highly recommend Howard Weintraub to anyone who needs a great criminal defense lawyer.

  • Howard Weintraub and Ben Alpert are Exceptional White Collar Defenders
    I called Howard after receiving a call from the FBI informing me that they wanted to come in and talk about possible felony charges to be levied against me. I was scared to death. I called 2 other potential attorneys but after talking to Howard for about 15 minutes on the phone I was convinced that he was the attorney I wanted representing me going forward. Howard gave me the assurances that I needed to hear. I was emotionally a wreck. I scheduled a meeting with Howard and from the moment I walked into his office I felt at ease. I knew I had made the right choice. Debbie was upfront to greet me and made me feel comfortable in telling me that no one in Howard's office would cast judgement on me and this made me feel like I could be totally honest with Howard and his associate. When I met Howard and Ben they listened to me talk about my situation and how upset and confused I was. They were very honest, compassionate, understanding and treated me with the utmost integrity. We talked about what we would need to do going forward and the options that might be forthcoming. We had several meetings after that as my legal situation took over two years to resolve. Howard and his team we there with me every step of the way. I am convinced that there is no way that I could have got through this without Howard and his staff. Howard and Ben worked out a plea agreement with the U. S. Attorneys office that I believe was fair to each party. I am currently awaiting for my date to surrender myself to the federal prison system but I am ok with that today and a lot of that had to do with the fact that I know in my heart and head that had it not been for Howard and his team that I would be preparing for a much , much longer prison term. Not sure how many times that I can say thank you to Howard and his staff but I need to say it again and would highly recommend Howard and his staff for anyone needing legal representation. You will be hiring people who are the best.

  • Truly Compassionate and Dedicated
    Due to a brutal addiction to alcohol and prescription sedatives, I found myself in a tricky legal situation earlier this year. Retaining Howard J. Weintraub as my attorney was by far the best decision I made -not only because of my hearing's outcome, but because of Mr. Weintraub's concern and dedication for my well being. He always treated me with dignity and respect. Whenever I had concerns or anxieties, Mr. Weintraub was always quick to answer my questions in a reassuring and honest fashion. He kept me informed and I always felt "in the loop." I never felt like I was "just another client," and always felt as if Mr. Weintraub gave my case the attention and dedication I felt it deserved. I personally know that he worked long hours on my hearing, even preparing for it on evenings and Sunday mornings. Fortunately, my hearing concluded with a favorable outcome. Mr. Weintraub, however, wasn't merely concerned with my legal problems. Rather, he was deeply interested that I seek help for my addiction issues. He asked that I choose a treatment center that I felt comfortable with. Mr. Weintraub then persuaded both my probation officer and judge to let me complete treatment and said center, rather than sentence me to further incarceration. Since my court date, he has remained in contact with me and my family in order to check up on my progress. I am currently a member of Alcoholics Anonymous and am working the program's 12 steps with a sponsor. I am receiving a quality of care that is above par to any that I have seen in other therapeutic communities. I am taking all of this very seriously, and am aware that my life's new direction is as a result of Mr. Weintraub's iron clad work ethic. Not only has he been an amazing attorney. He's turned out to be a confidant and friend as well. Because of these reasons, I whole heartedly recommend his services to anybody needing legal representation.

  • An Exceptional trusted advisor and defender
    I initially contacted Mr. Weintraub after reviewing the ratings of other attorneys in this area. This was the first experience for my teenage son, who was charged as a minor in possession, with an open container. What a surreal experience, when I was called by my son at 3am in the morning. I called Mr. Weintraub's office later that morning and by the afternoon both my son and I were coached with advise on the legal process, alternatives, reasonable expectations and the possible outcomes. Mr. Weintraub and his legal staff provided a calming effect by explaining the process in layman terms, but I also observed how efficiently Mr. Weintraub executed his legal skills and diplomacy in the courtroom, with the solicitor and speaking with the judge. We are on track to have this matter resolved with a very positive outcome and my son has also learned a lot through this process in terms of how the legal system works. The discussions between Mr. Weintraub and my son have provided a learning experience my son will will definitely remember and appreciate in the future. Mr. Weintraub and his legal staff have gone above and beyond my expectations as both a defense lawyer and an individual who is interested in my son understanding and respect for the legal system. I highly recommend Mr. Weintraub and his legal team without hesitation.

  • Honest, Respectful, Professional, and Best in Defense.
    I highly recommend the Law Office of Howard Weintraub to anyone desiring the best criminal law defense. In my dealings with the law office, I always was treated with the utmost respect. Phone calls and e-mail communications were returned 99% of the time within 24 hours or less. Howard did not make extravagant promises about the case; however, he came through with the exact plan he proposed and my charges were dismissed. My experience with being arrested for domestic violence is not dissimilar to others I have read about. The law enforcement officers did the best they could to keep the peace, but sometimes they get the wrong people. The media did not help anyone involved. Howard saw through this and designed a defense to secure my good name and character. I still proudly serve my country, and I am working on my Masters degree with a 3.9 GPA. I honestly believe that without Howard's help I could be experiencing lesser freedoms. I am glad I found Howard Weintraub on AVVO.com. If you need an attorney, I highly recommend the Law Office of Howard Weintraub.

  • Howard Weintraub - Best Attorney in Atlanta
    I have worked with Attorneys on various Civil and Criminal issues in the past and Howard Weintraub is without a doubt, a class above the rest. In my most recent situation, Howard was asked to take over a criminal case from another attorney, who's strategy was to wait for the judicial process to wind down to the statute of limitations. This strategy resulted in Felony charges hanging on the Defendants record, blocking work and school opportunities. Howard's experience, knowledge and expertise lead the defense in a completely different direction, and the case was resolved in a timely manner and in favor of the defendant. In addition, Howard and his staff's efforts resulted in an expungement of the origional charges. Throughout the process Howard and his staff were completely candid and proactive involving the defendant and myself in every strategic decision and action. There are many attorneys to choose from, but there are few attorneys who can not only prepare a viable defense, but have the skill to present this defense in a logical, clear and persuasive way to the court. I believe Howard Weintraub is the best attorney I have ever worked with. I have recommended him to family and friends in the past, and will continue to do so in the future.

  • Howard is an excellent lawyer; he was very supportive, understanding and resolved my cases successfully. Kudos!
    Howard and team are amazing. Thanks a million to Ben and Debi; they compliment Howard very well. I hired Howard for my misdemeanor cases and was truly impressed with his service. He clearly explained the process and my options; I felt quite comfortable and confident with his expertise and backing. He is easily accessible; in person; over the phone or email. I always received a prompt response and never had trouble. Even though I left Atlanta, I was always able to communicate with Howard and Ben over the phone or email. Also, whenever I requested any clarifications or documents, I received them promptly. Howard handled my case very professionally. At the same time, he was personally caring for my situation since I was going through personal crisis. It was real nice to have someone who not only conducts business professionally, but is also compassionate. I highly recommend Howard; you can be rest assured that with his knowledge and experience he will certainly work in your best interests.

    Looking for an attorney can be a daunting task. After speaking with a few attorneys, I called the law offices of Howard Weintraub, and a woman answered. She asked intelligent questions the others had overlooked, answered my questions, and then transferred me to Mr. Alper. He confirmed a lot of the answers, had additional questions, and explained what their office could do for us. There was no sales pitch, no tactics – which others that I interviewed had used that day. My son would be facing a probation revocation hearing and a DUI. Mr. Alper came across as honest and caring. He explained Mr. Weintraub was in court, but they would both meet with me, and answer any additional questions. Again, no sales pressure. When we met everyone, Debi, the woman that had answered the phone, was there to greet us. She was motherly and kind, and reassured us. Howard Weintraub was extremely thorough during our first interview. He was forthright, and outlined a strategy that I thought was brilliant. He made no promises other than he would work tirelessly for us. Ultimately, his strategy resulted in the best possible outcome for our family. For the most part, I would hope lawyers abide by a high code of ethics and steer their clients to play by the rules. Mr. Weintraub goes beyond that. He genuinely cares for his clients. He works tirelessly for the best possible outcome. And, he makes himself personally available throughout the process. What could be more honorable than that? There are no words that can express our deep gratitude to Mr. Weintraub and his staff for their help and support during this process.

  • Great attorney!
    Mr. Weintraub epitomizes what an attorney should be....very professional, caring, skillful and a great planner. Most importantly, he truly cares about those he takes on as clients and works with all parties to find the best possible solution and outcome. His handling of our case was precisely what we expected from the first day we met him. We would highly recommend this attorney, his client relationship and legal experience and skills are excellent.

  • DUI Resolved
    In November of 2011, my son was charged with DUI after he was stopped by police and blew a .161, over twice the legal limit. We turned to attorney Howard Weintraub for help and I can’t say enough about Howard’s legal expertise and professionalism. Prior to his DUI charge, my son had been losing a tremendous amount of weight. His driver’s license listed my son as 240 pounds but the day he was stopped, he weighed only 200 and had little to eat that day. Also, my son had previously suffered several instances of sports related head trauma. Howard argued that these factors had an adverse effect on both the sobriety tests and the breathalyzer machine. The court agreed, and dismissed my son’s DUI charges! My son is a fine young man who in May, will be graduating from college with a Business Administration degree and a major in Finance. Following his graduation, he is looking to enter the corporate world and/or further his education in graduate school. Having a DUI conviction on his record would have been devastating to his educational path and future career. Thanks to Howard’s experience, my son is now free to continue his life without this legal burden hanging over his head. I would highly recommend Howard Weintraub to any individual with a legal problem.

  • Howard is the best!
    Howard was genuine and very caring in handling my case. He really listens to you as a client and makes you feel like you in extremely capable hands. He made going through the whole process as tolerable as something like that can be. I hope I don't ever need him again, but I know if I do - he's there for me!

  • Best Criminal Lawyer around!
    Howard Weintraub is masterful in the courtroom. This is as I perceived him as he deposed the arresting officer who mas moving to Afghanistan and the State moved to have his testimony preserved in my DUI/Less Safe Court case. He knew everything to ask and ascertain from the officer and was bold and aggressive in the treatment of Henry County's court system. His New York style and sense of humor made me feel like I was in the winning scene from "My Cousin Vinny". He was totally prepared and didn't hesitate to discredit the officer's testimony by any and all means. Howard wanted to take my case to court but in my best interest he was able to plea the charge down to reckless driving. I believe with a fair jury selection Howard could have won the case. He was not willing to take the chance however, that Henry County could lock me up for an extended time and impose all their punishments that they would have. The mere fact that Howard got the charges dropped to reckless driving speaks of the hard work that Howard and his associate Ben Alper had done as Henry County never wants to let anything go. Howard kept me informed throughout the affair of my case. He was always very kind and sympathetic about my case and answered all my questions and addressed my concerns through his knowledge and wisdom of the law. I would highly recommend Howard and his team to anyone who finds themselves in trouble with a DUI arrest. My only regret during the process was that I did not get to see Howard perform during a jury trial. I have no doubt that he would have made me see legal magic. Thank you to Pat, his legal secretary who called me numerous times and took many of my phone calls and relayed messages. Thanks to Ben, Howard's associate for being so cool during my plea bargain. Trust me, my stress was less. Again, a personal, heartfelt thank you, Howard for working so hard for me.

  • Great Job
    Earlier this year, I was charged with my 2nd DUI in three years, along with reckless driving and excessive speeding. After months of searching for a good DUI attorney, I was fortunate enough to find Howard J. Weintraub in Atlanta. After a few months of dealing with court and talking to the District Attorney, my case was finally over in November. Mr. Weintraub's law firm was able to get my reckless driving dropped, and get my DUI reduced to reckless driving. I did not have to spend anytime in jail, nor did I get my license suspended, therefor I do not have a 2nd DUI on my permanent driving record. All in all, it was a great effort and an incredible job by attorneys Howard J. Weintraub and Benjamin B. Alper at The Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub. My family and I are very grateful to them for all of their help.

  • An Honest, Dependable, Knowledgeable, and Caring Attorney
    Mr. Weintraub was the 3rd attorney I interviewed and he was the most affordable attorney out of the 3. Howard Weintraub is honest, dependable, knowledgeable and caring towards his clients. I was looking at 51 months in prison but because of the efforts of Mr. Weintraub and Mr. Alper, I was able to get only 36 months. Mr. Weintraub was prompt in returning calls and emails and I have nothing but the best to say about him. Thanks to Mr. Weintraub and his office, the outcome of my case turned out better than we hoped and I would strongly recommend Howard Weintraub to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney.

  • 17-year-old charged with possession/intent to distribute
    Howard came highly recommended as our family found ourselves in need of a criminal attorney. From the outset, Howard's demeanor is professional yet "down to earth." Our family immediately felt that we were in good hands. Howard is not your stereotypical lawyer. His geniune concern/attention to our case was very comforting. In addition, Howard is unique in that he is not a 9-5 type of lawyer. It was not uncommon to get a phone call from him before or after business hours on many days. He was senisitive to the urgency of our case and agreed to meet us on a holiday weekend. This spoke volumes to the type of lawyer that he is. Our son was driving someone elses car which contained marijuana, a scale and bags. Based on the fact that it was not his car coupled with a successful polygraph, Howard was able to get the criminal charges against our son dropped. I would recommend Howard highly to anyone who is looking for a criminal lawyer who will work as hard on your case, as if it was his very own.

  • The Best Team Around To Carry You To The End.
    Howard Weintraub represented me for an unfortunate accidental discharge of a weapon  while I was on school premises. During the inspection of a gun, I accidentially discharged the weapon, shooting my friend and I was arrested for carrying a gun within school safety zone, reckless conduct, and discharging a firearm in public. I was facing prison time..  Howard Weintraub worked hard to reduce the charges to a plead of Nolo contendere under the first offender act and I was fortunate to serve probationary time without any imprisonment and  restitution. I appreciate the hard work, dedication  of Howard Weintraub to grant me a second chance in life and without a record. During my probation period  I had to call on Mr Weintraub again because unfortunetly I lost my job and could not afford to pay my  restitution.  Howard and his associate Benjamin Black worked diligently again and came thru big time for me and had my  restitution cut in half ultimately ending my probation time. I am still a young man and will never forget Mr. Howard Weintraub and his associate as long I live. I am forever grateful to Mr Howard Weintraub and his associate Mr Benjamin Black. What a team!

  • Thank you Howard!
    When I was 15 years old Howard Weintraub represented my Grandfather in a murder case. My Grandfather was charged with the murder of my father. After my father’s death I went to live with my grandparents. I had just lost my dad and it seemed I was going to lose my Grandpa also “to prison.” My Grandmother called Howard and he soon became a household name around our home. He was our only hope. My mother had charges against her as well. I remember all those years ago how great Mr. Weintraub was in the courtroom. He was very sharp, he made the prosecution look foolish and a probation officer just look stupid. Because I was only 15, Howard felt it would be better for the Judge to question me in the Judge’s chambers rather than in the courtroom, so at the end of the trial Howard and I went into chambers with the Judge to answer the Judges final questions. It was hard for me at the age of 15 to face this situation. Howard made this easy for me, being by my side. He became a hero of mine keeping my loved ones from spending the rest of their lives in prison. The final verdict was 2 years of probation. Now I am 31 years old, in need of a lawyer again to help my family. My sister has a prescription drug problem and has been charged with 35 counts of forgery. We went to Howard with this situation and did not have the fee he required for a case such as this.Being the great person he is, he agreed to take the case on anyway. We are very grateful and if anyone can help her, it will be Howard Weintraub. Thank you Howard, we will keep you in our prayers.

  • The best DUI lawyer around!
    Howard Weintraub is by far the best DUI lawyer around. I found myself facing DUI charges 3 years ago and did not know where to turn. I met with Howard that week and he immediately took the stress away. I felt very confident in my choice to have Howard represent my case. Three years later my charges were reduced to Reckless Driving and I couldn't be happier. Along the way Howard kept me informed and up to date on everything. I loved his no nonsense attitude and the fact that he is very agressive in his tactics. I highly recommend that you choose Howard if you are facing any criminal charges.

  • Super Criminal Attorneys
    My case involved an extremely complicated environment that highlights the pitfalls of trusting a close, personal friend to our family that was secretly (to my lack of knowledge), involved in the illegal use of a company's patents across state lines. My personal background was one of being totally blemish free; basically, I had never, ever received a driver citation or a parking ticket in my life; to put it lightly, I was scared to death and totally stressed out. This was the type of ultra shock that leaves you breathless and totally numb for several days before picking yourself up off the ground and deciding on the available options to save your life. After discussing my case with couple of local criminal attorneys, I was quickly advised that my case was definitely for the small town or inexperienced criminal lawyer and without any hesitation, was told to seek the counsel of so-called super criminal attorneys with significant experience in dealing with a case of this magnitude. From a list of approximately (6) super criminal attorneys in the Atlanta area, Mr. Howard Weintraub was at the top of this list. This case has been simply unbelievable; the timeframe has covered approximately six years from the date I was called by an FBI agent, indicating I should seek the services of a criminal attorney. The outcome of this case was extraordinary. Simply, because of Mr. Weintraub's amazing preparation of this case and his unrelenting filing of documents with the court and prosecutor's office, Mr. Weintraub obtained a sentence for me of two years probation, rather than the 84 months of incarceration I was facing under the federal sentencing guidelines! Basically, I was sent home by the federal judge not to spend even one hour in prison! In summary, Mr. Weintraub has been by my side all the way; I simply would have been totally lost without his guidance and support as a tough-nosed litigator. After experiencing this type of a legal abyss that will try men's souls, I highly recommend Mr. Howard Weintraub to any potential client seeking the services of a first class criminal defense attorney to fight for you against federal criminal charges. I simply will never, never forget him.

  • Miracle Worker
    Howard was amazing the entire time. He took his time to listen and cared about me and my situation. He continued the case long enough so we would have all of our ducks in row so we could plea our case. He got all my citations (6 of them) including a DUI all reduce to only Reckless driving!!! Something that was called a miracle by our actual Judge!!!

  • Howard Weintraub helped my grandson!
    A couple of years ago, Attorney Howard Weintraub helped my grandson with his case. My grandson had a misdemeanor and a felony (a bottle of pain medication with no label found in his car) charge. The felony charge was dropped because Attorney Weintraub investigated and proved to the court there was a reasonable explanation why the unlabeled medication that did not belong to my grandson was in his car. I certainly would recommend him and have been very thankful for his time and effort in my grandson’s case.

  • Extremely Knowledgeable and Empathetic Attorney
    Mr. Weintraub played a pivotal role in my life when he dispensed with my case that would have involved severe immigration consequences if the desired Pre-Trial Diversion result was not achieved. As my knowledgeable, well-connected and empathetic defense lawyer, Mr. Weintraub was able to deftly negotiate with all the different parties involved in my case to achieve a result that was focused on making me a better person, but, most importantly, make myself feel to be more of an asset to the community. My lawyer would arrange an innovative TPO solution with the Superior Court that worked for my family and also maximized my protection any adverse immigration consequences. To ensure the case was handled properly, regarding immigration issues, Mr. Weintraub brought in one of the top-notch immigration consultants available, a person who had tangible experience of working for the US Immigration Service before moving into a consultant role. After the TPO issue was solved, Mr. Weintraub was able to negotiate a Pre-Trial Diversion, PTD, dispensation with the Solicitor General, and I was frankly made to feel that the Solicitor’s office was genuinely committed to helping me rather than trying to simply punish me. I had been afraid that no Solicitor would want to help me, but Mr. Weintraub soon put those fears to rest; however, he was always frank about the reality of the situation and what I had to do to make things right. One action that I really remember is that Mr. Weintraub also asked the Solicitor to have my arrest record expunged as a condition written into my PTD agreement, which is something I never would have thought to ask!! I followed through on all Mr. Weintraub’s expert instructions and the PTD was achieved to have my case dropped. A few years later, when I applied for US Naturalization, due to the nature of my past case, I sought the assistance of an expert Immigration attorney. When the immigration attorney reviewed the file on the case that Mr. Weintraub dispensed, he remarked that he has rarely seen such a clean and air-tight PTD case executed. I then had absolutely no issues at the critical Naturalization interview with the US Immigration Service.

  • Howard is a kind and caring person.
    Never in my life would I have ever thought I would ever be arrested for anything. Then after helping local Police in an investigation regarding money laundering by Arab middle easterners, I was arrested by the FBI, and charged with impersonating a government official. I couldn’t believe what was happening, My Family did their research as to who was best to help me out of this situation and Howard Weintruab was recommended by several other law firms. Howard had me out on bail within 12 hours of getting the call to help me. Howard’s experience as a Federal Prosecutor and his relationships in the Federal courthouse with Judges and current Prosecutors was invaluable in helping with my case. Due to the complicated nature of the situation Howard was able to work out a plea agreement and I was granted probation. Howard did everything in his power to get me out of the situation and we had to settle for the probation. But it was the best possible outcome to a nightmare situation. Howard is a kind and caring person, he has his moments as we all do, but we have come to be great friends and there is nothing I wouldn’t do for him if he asked. He has helped me greatly to get through this part of my life and he has been there to counsel me on other parts, my life is better for having Howard in it. He is someone who gives his word and stands by it, there are few people left in this world with the values and morality that Howard has. It is with great pleasure that I recommend the services of Howard J. Weintraub, and I encourage anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney to call him.

  • I was facing 20 years, he got me 18 months!
    Howard Weintraub did a phenomenal job representing me in a federal criminal case involving a drug conspiracy ring to distribute methamphetamine in Tennessee. I was arrested in February, 2010. When we hired Mr. Weintraub I was facing 20 years in prison with a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years. All of his decisions in representing me proved to be 100 % correct. He was able to get me a bond, so after I was arrested I stayed in jail for less than one day and I was back home with my family. Over several months, Howard Weintraub analyzed and thoroughly reviewed the government's evidence against me and planned the strategy on how to defend me. The decision was made by Mr. Weintraub and our family to have me plead guilty to conspiracy. I pled guilty in June, 2010. In this Tennessee federal court, everyone who pleads guilty is then immediately incarcerated to await sentencing. Miraculously, and to this day I don’t know how, Howard Weintraub was able to convince the Federal Judge to allow me to remain free. Of all the Defendants, it was Howard Weintraub’s client, myself, who remained out of jail free on bond after being convicted. At sentencing in February, 2011, instead of the mandatory 120 months and the maximum of 240 months, Howard Weintraub convinced the Judge to sentence me to 18 months. Incredibly, Howard Weintraub also convinced the Judge to allow me to voluntarily surrender to the place of my incarceration no sooner than June of 2011. So I continues to remain free on bond. I highly recommend Howard Weintraub to represent anyone charged with federal criminal offenses. He is highly dedicated to his clients, tenacious in representing his clients, thoroughly prepared for court, and in the courtroom he is a very effective and convincing attorney as he fights from the heart. On behalf of myself and my entire family I humbly take this opportunity to publicly thank Howard Weintraub for saving my life. Without Howard, I would not be able to watch my daughter grow up. Now I can be a part of her life. I couldn't ask for anything more.

  • Best DUI Lawyer in Atlanta
    My daughter was arrested for DUI and given numerous traffic citations three days after graduating from high school. After searching for an attorney that specialized in representing minors charged with alcohol /drug related offenses, I was referred to Howard by a friend of the family. At our first meeting, Howard agreed to represent my daughter and immediately put together a defense strategy including a 15 point action plan. The action plan included doing community service, writing a court essay, completing a psychological evaluation, and attending AA meetings. All the action items were to be completed prior to the hearing. It became very clear to me that Howard had a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience defending minors charged with DUI. He expressed a genuine concern for my daughter’s physical and mental health. While awaiting the hearing, my daughter was arrested again for minor in possession three weeks after entering her first year of college. Howard recommended we go to court; face this charge and plea bargain as soon as possible. My daughter was fined and sentenced to one year probation. One month later, she was arrested (the third time in less than six months) for minor in possession. Now in violation of probation, she should have been sent right to jail. Howard was able to convince the court to delay jail time until the break between semesters and limit the time served so she wouldn’t miss any time from school. Needless to say, this situation became very complex as it spread across multiple counties and courts within the state. As I watched him negotiate with prosecutors and speak with the court’s administrative staff, I realized how highly respected he is within the state’s judicial system. Howard was able to get the third arrest for MIP dismissed and the DUI reduced to reckless driving. I am forever grateful to Howard and highly recommend him to anyone charged with DUI or MIP. Not only did he vigorously defend my daughter as if she were his child; he provided leadership, guidance, and counsel to me through this period of time. My daughter has turned her life around! She is completing her college education, receiving the Hope scholarship, and sober while doing so.

  • I would highly recommend Mr. Weintraub
    When searching online for an attorney with experience handling federal matters, Mr. Weintraub's website and testimonials caught my attention. When you are trying to get assistance for a beloved family member especially your child, you want to seek the advice from the best. When I met with Mr. Weintraub, he and his staff were very professional and very honest with me regarding the options available. I knew immediately that I had in fact reached out to a very knowledgeable and forthright attorney. I have not made a decision at this time which option to pursue as we complete additional research. Mr. Weintraub was kind enough to waive the consultation fee since we needed to access additional materials. I would highly recommend Mr. Weintraub to any other concerned parent or individual who wants the best on your side.

I was referred to Attorney Weintraub and after our first meeting I felt I was in good hands. Mr. Weintraub thoughtfully explained the legal process for my charge and showed empathy as I shared my story.

    During the past year , I have had the privilege of consulting with Mr. Weintraub regarding several civil and criminal matters. My concerns were varied and complex and included complicated tax problems, commercial real estate foreclosure, contract disputes, and dealing with aggressive creditors and potential bankruptcy. In addition, I am involved in a contemptuous divorce and required Mr. Weintraub's advice with restraining orders . I had consulted with several other attorneys before choosing Mr. Weintraub to assist me. Mr. Weintraub was clearly superior to the other attorneys I had spoken to. From the first call , Mr. Weintraub was patient, attentive and focused. His knowledge base was superior on every matter I needed help with . I strongly recommend Mr. Weintraub because I had a positive resolution on each matter he assisted me with.

  • Mr Weintraub was very impressive--very different from other attorneys
    My son was the victum of an internet scam boasting a $500 free gift card for a quick click of a mouse to accept. Unfortunately, no gift certificate was forthcoming; instead, my son began receiving reams of magazines at his college apartment, that were neither ordered, nor wanted. His attempts at contacting the company to resolve this, went unanswered. In fact, he was unable to speak to a live person. Several months later, he received a bill for close to $2000 for magazine subscriptions. I contacted Attorney Howard Weintraub to help me resolve this situation. He composed one letter and magically, everything stopped! We were no longer billed and in fact received a letter confirming that the subscriptions would stop, with an apology. Mr Weintraub was very impressive--very different from other attorneys I have worked with professionally over the years. Other attorneys would placate me that I was in the right hands, however with Mr. Weintraub, I really felt a sense of competence, assurance and caring that the other attorneys did not possess. I felt as though my problem became his problem. Being able to assess a situation, know what is appropriate, and "right" to do to achieve a desired outcome, is obviously one of his many strong suits. I also felt his compensation was very fair. Although this was a relatively minor concern, Mr. Weintraub would be at the top of my short list of the very best legal counsel in the Atlanta area or anywhere else in the country.

    I was arrested for DUI in 2009, and Howard represented me. He is a family man, which made it easy for him to relate me and my family.

My DUI charges were reduced to reckless driving, and I was because of Howard Weintraub and his dedicated members with him.

  • Saved From 2 DUIs
    What can I say about Howard? Almost four years ago I was charged with my first DUI and I logically stressed out. I felt like I had a broken a law, but I felt like the police force stepped way out of their bounds. I immediately started researching attorneys in Atlanta, and eventually placed a call to Howard's office with the intention of comparing him to two others. I never even needed to call another attorney to determine who would be best because I already got the sense that Howard was my guy. His receptionist was very kind and accommodating, and Howard had me in immediately. While I was only in college at the time, I felt like Howard leveled with me as an adult, and I could tell he was very honest, hard-working, and knowledgeable. I had a few initial meetings, and he put me at ease. I did not question his tactics of holding off any trials and delaying any actions. Not one year went by when I got another DUI. I immediately called Howard. He did not yell at me and become condescending that I had not learned my lesson, but instead calmly talked me through our next steps. I knew that my fate was in good hands. Three years later, Howard’s tactic of waiting forced an error on the part of the prosecutor, who did not bind either case over until after the statute of limitations. I know that many nights of prayers were answered, but I believe that God answered my prayers by bringing me to a very good man who helped me out. I have definitely learned my lesson and I rarely even have a drink, but never before jumping behind the wheel. I have also made a new friend and have formed hopefully a lifelong professional relationship. Two other details that also make Howard’s small “firm” an easy choice. His new attorney assistant is great (recent Emory grad, also Howard’s alma mater) and his receptionist is fantastic. If you go in to the office for a visit and wind up chatting with the receptionist, she will keep you laughing and smiling for at least an hour!

  • Howard Weintraub Did An Absolutely Incredible Job
    I was arrested for D.U. I. in December of 2009. I had no idea of where to find a good lawyer, but luckily came across a website that featured Mr. Weintraub. Howard did an absolutely incredible job representing me and getting my D.U.I. charge lowered to a reckless driving. From the very first meeting I had with Howard, I knew I was in good hands. He was honest, up front, and straightforward with me at all stages of my case. Despite being arrested by a D.U.I. taskforce officer in Atlanta, who claimed I failed every aspect of the sobriety tests, Howard knew from the first meeting he would probably be able to get me off. He let me know exactly what I needed to do, and literally only one year later (December 2010) my entire case was resolved. I live out of state, and Howard took care of everything over the phone in such an easy manner. By Howard convincing the judge at Fulton County State Court to lower my D.U.I. charge to a reckless driving, I have no criminal convictions on my record. This was the biggest request I made of Howard at our initial meeting, because it was paramount for my career, as I have to apply to the Florida State BAR to be admitted as a practicing lawyer. Had Howard not represented me, my entire legal career would have been in jeopardy with a criminal conviction on my record. Choosing Howard to represent me literally was the best decision I have ever made. I encourage anyone who needs someone to help them out of a bad situation such as the one I found myself in to trust in Howard. Thanks Howard!!!

  • The Best Lawyer To Fight The United States Government
    I retained Howard J. Weintraub to represent me in my case versus the United States government that dealt firsthand with the infamous McDonald's Monopoly game scandal. With this being said, I needed counsel that was competent and trustworthy to handle the case that could determine the outcome of the rest of my life. I researched attorneys thoroughly in the Atlanta area and found Howard with the best credentials from not only experience as a well known defense attorney, but also as a federal prosecutor. Throughout the course of this extensive litigation with the federal government, dealing with U.S. Marshalls and U.S. District Courts, Weintraub showed nothing short of tenacity and professionalism. Howard was always there to assist me and ensure there would be a positive outcome to my case. His expertise and comprehensive knowledge of both state and federal laws, allowed me to persevere and close my case efficiently. Furthermore, I would wholeheartedly and highly recommend Weintraub's representation as counsel.

  • The greatest Christmas present I ever received!
    I was under investigation by the Internal Revenue Service and the United States Department of Justice for allegedly preparing thousands of false tax returns. If I were to be indicted and convicted, I was facing over five years in prison and the payment of restitution of between $200,000.00 - $300,000.00. I was desperate and fearful over losing my freedom, being branded a convicted felon, owing the government over one quarter million dollars and losing my life as I had known it. I prayed to God for a hard fighting, aggressive and highly respected attorney who would defend me and prevent the government from ruining my life and the lives of my children. There were so many lawyers to go to but I thank God for directing me to Atlanta Attorney Howard Weintraub. Through Mr. Weintraub’s efforts, knowledge and reputation he convinced the government that I was innocent and not to bring any charges against me. I learned of Mr. Weintraub’s victory and of the government’s decision not to indict me just 8 days before Christmas, 2010. This is the greatest Christmas present I have ever received. I highly recommend Howard Weintraub to anyone in the country in need of a fantastic, hard fighting, aggressive and highly respected criminal lawyer. Thank you Howard, and Merry Christmas to you Howard Weintraub and your family.

  • Fantastic drug case attorney.
    I was indicted by the Federal government for being in a drug conspiracy that distributed over 150 kilograms of cocaine. Because this was my second drug offense, I was facing a minimum of 20 years in prison. Friends of mine recommended that I retain Atlanta criminal defense attorney Howard Weintraub to represent me. He was phenomenal. From the very beginning of the case through my sentencing proceeding, he was correct in each of his decisions as to what we should do. First, Howard Weintraub convinced the federal prosecutors not to arrest me and to allow me to voluntarily surrender as I travelled over 2,000 miles to Atlanta. Second, Mr. Weintraub convinced the Judge to grant me a bond even though I was previously convicted of federal drug charges, I had served time in federal prison, and I was charged with being in the present drug conspiracy while I was on supervised release from my first drug conviction! Third, Mr. Weintraub correctly analyzed my chances of winning our motion to suppress the drugs and the seized money and Mr. Weintraub correctly evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of the government’s case against me. Through the efforts of Howard Weintraub, I was sentenced to 11 years, instead of the statutorily required minimum amount of 20 years. I certainly recognize that 11 years is a long time but I could have gotten twice as much time if I didn’t have Howard Weintraub as my attorney. Even after he got me ½ of the sentence I was facing, he convinced the Judge to allow me to voluntarily surrender to prison when I am told by the Marshal Service to report. Howard Weintraub cared for me and treated me with the utmost respect. I love this guy and I highly, highly, highly recommend him to anyone needing a good lawyer. Howard Weintraub is a phenomenal drug case lawyer. Thank you so much Howard Weintraub.

  • He saved my life!
    I was recently charged with a federal crime. Mr. Weintraub visited me immediately and assured me of a speedy resolution. True to his word, my resolution was more than I expected. I was discharged. I spent 36 hours in Fulton County to come before the judge, then to be dismissed. Thank you Howard! I recommend to any and all the expertise of Mr. Weintraub! Sincerely, thank you!

  • Treated Me Like I Was His Own Son!
    Howard Weintraub is an excellent attorney and has represented me in two different DUI cases. I was 19 at the time, and he knew how to handle this type of case. He sat down with me and we went over many options and scenarios. My family was in crisis at the time of my arrest, and Howard actually sat me down as a “father figure” and talked with me about my situation and helped me get my life back on track. I was not just another client to him. He gave me his phone number and told me to call him if I just needed to talk. Most of the attorneys I interviewed with were not easy to talk with and didn’t really understand my situation. He is a father of two and he could relate to what I was going through. I think this made a huge impact on my life. I am now still in college and will graduate soon. I would highly recommend Howard to anyone who wants an attorney who is truly a “real” person. He knows the laws and is an expert in his field.

  • I will be forever grateful
    I will forever be indebted to Howard Weintraub for representing me in my DUI case. I will refer him to anyone who is need of a criminal lawyer without hesitation. Howard Weintraub is a patient, honest man, who is intelligent, creative and knows the law. And no matter how bad you feel your circumstance is Howard will make you laugh. My whole life could have taken a rotten turn in 2007 when I was stopped for making an illegal U-Turn and then arrested for suspicion of DUI . I refused the breathalyzer test, which could have suspended my license for a year. I am a single mother of two young children and I have a job that requires me to travel outside of Georgia, which means I either drive my car out of state or rent a car, of which if found guilty I would not be able to do either with a suspended license and I would have lost my job. I was also frightened that I might lose custody of my children. I was absolutely terrified. I met with Howard the very next day. He listened to my story and understood what I was afraid of and what was important to me. He shared with me the whole legal process and my possible outcomes. I walked out a calmer me and knew that I was in good hands. Two years later I would go to trial. When it was time to prepare for my trial, Howard treated me like I was his only client, and better yet, he treated me like part of his family. He didn’t leave any stone unturned; he hired and prepared expert witnesses and personal witnesses to help us win. When we got into the courtroom I remember feeling confident Howard had given me his best. I enjoyed watching Howard work the room. He talked to everyone the police, prosecutor, the bailiff, and the judge during our breaks and recesses. It was obvious that Howard is very respected and known within the legal community. Howard had a rebuttal for every derogatory statement that the prosecutor made about me during the trial and after several hours, the judge made a decision to stop the trial before it was finished and declare me not guilty. In the end, I kept my job. Thanks Howard.

  • A #1 Attorney
    Howard Weintraub has represented my family with several different cases. He is an expert in his area and is a very strong and dedicated attorney. Howard went beyond the call of duty for my family. He went as far as letting me contact him after hours and always returned my calls immediately. Many of the other attorneys I have worked with did not do this and it was very frustrating. I have gotten to know his entire office staff and they have always been very helpful and friendly. They were very compassionate about my situation. Howard was very easy to work with and kept me updated every step of the way. I have become friends with him over the years, and I can honestly say that Howard is intelligent, relentless and truly cares about his clients. He is dedicated to what he does and is out to win every case. He is truly the best attorney in Atlanta.

  • Howard Weintraub is a great lawyer!
    I was accused by the Federal Government of accepting kickbacks from suppliers for over $1.4 million dollars. I was facing up to 30 years in prison if convicted. I had never been in any kind of trouble and had no idea where to turn. I hired Howard Weintraub in August of 2007 to represent me in this case. I was searching for a lawyer on the internet and found Howard’s web site. God must have been helping me push the buttons on my computer that day because I could not have found a better lawyer in the world to represent me. From the very beginning Howard was up front with me about what I was facing. He explained in detail what could happen if I fought the charges and what would happen if I plead guilty to the charges. Howard guided me in the right direction and helped me make the decision to plead guilty to the charges and to start a new life. My potential sentence of 30 years was dropped down to 27 months and $500 thousand in restitution. Howard went above and beyond what I expected him to do and became a friend of mine over the 4 years he worked on my case. He honestly cared about me and knew that I was struggling with my decision. He called me countless times to update me on my case and to see how I was doing. If you are reading this I can tell you without a doubt that there is no better lawyer that you can hire to handle you legal matter better than Howard Weintraub.

  • We are Fortunate that We Hired Atty Weintraub
    The words that best describe Mr. Weintraub and his staff are: highly reputable, intelligent, compassionate, thorough, proactive, professional, empathetic and available. We feel fortunate that he decided to help us. Our college-aged son was afforded a second chance in life after a lapse in judgment. With Mr. Weintraub's assistance, we are pleased with the outcome. Our son will be graduating from college soon and will be able to put his past behind him.

  • Attorney Howard Weintraub Saved My Job And Also Probably My Marriage
    I had two DUI charges when I sought Howard Weintraub's representation. As soon as I met him I knew he was a quality attorney. He was upfront with me and never promised anything that he knew he couldn't guarantee. I was facing losing my license for one year, at least 10 days in jail and a number of additional charges, penalties, etc. If I would have received all of the sentencing that comes along with two DUI's I would have undoubtedly lost my job and possibly my marriage. Mr. Weintraub was able to get me off with one DUI and one reckless driving charge, which saved me from losing my license. Mr. Weintraub went above and beyond to help me throughout the entire process and I felt as though he truly cared about the outcome of my situation. I must say that I owe my job and probably my marriage to Mr. Weintraub and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a trusting, top-notch attorney. He is a true professional that will treat his clients with the highest respect and attention.

  • Howard Weintraub is a fantastic lawyer!
    One whose profession is to give legal advice and assistance to clients and represent them in court or in other legal matters is a definition I found online of a lawyer. Howard Weintraub is all this plus more. Our relationship began Oct 9, 2008 after I found his website. The DEA had just caught me and my father in the act of selling marijuana, and I was desperate for some help. I actually left a message with his answering service at midnight; he called me within minutes. He has been there for me ever since. He is much more than a lawyer, but a personal role model of mine. It showed my family a lot about his character that he called me that night, and I am honored to tell others of his performance. He saw to it that I did less than 24 hours in jail, and got my Dad the most reasonable sentence within his power. Also because of him we got to keep our house, and I was able to go pick up several guns that got seized at the time of his arrest, which is very unusual. I am pregnant, and he calls me to check on the baby; which in my opinion goes above and beyond his job. He also bought me and my boyfriend lunch one of the times we had to go to court, and I also think this proves his good nature. This is a compassionate man who knows about the law and truly cares about his clients. God forbid I get into anymore trouble, but if I do… I have his number on speed dial. It was truly a privilege to meet Howard, and I would recommend him to anyone.

  • Weintraub will defend your position as a mand who is accustomed to doing battle.
    There are two distinct types of defense attorneys; winners, and those who, try as they may, are not winners. If H. Weintraub believes in your case then you may rest assured that he will defend your position as a man who is accustomed to doing battle. One who proceeds with a plan and the necessary equipment to lead the charge to further your objectives. If you are in need of a defense attorney be sure to pick one who believes that the best defense is to proceed offensively. As a non-resident of Georgia I can say, without hesitation, Attorney Weintraub protected my interest with vigor for 2 full years until he felt that the time and venue for my case were aligned in my best interest. His decisions were correct. Need I say more.

  • Not Guilty - Twice the legal limit!
    My experience with Howard Weintraub Law Offices was terrific! I was arrested for a DUI and a reading of double the limit in Georgia. I have a medical condition that interfered with the reading of the breathalyzer and Howard and his expert staff were able to prove to the Judge this disconnect and the verdict was Not Guilty!! Howard was always available whenever I needed him and returned my calls as quickly as possible.I would have lost my job and company car if it wasn't for the expertise of Howard and his staff. I would recommend Howard J Weintraub, PC. in Atlanta, GA. for any personal attorney needs.

  • Howard Jarrett Weintraub is the Absolute Bulldog, the Power, the Brain I Needed
    My name is Peter and I'm a small business owner from Germany and I do not write English very well. I become a client of Howard Weintraub by coincidence shortly after I was charged and accused with the offence of family violence battery. If I was convicted, I would be deported. This would have ruined my life. A friend of mine gladly recommended Howard Weintraub as a defense lawyer. This was an excellent recommendation because: 1. Howard demonstrated excellent knowledge of the overall situation in my case. Timing of the events and the proper sequence what needs to be done. 2. His secretary vividly demonstrated urgency of administrative steps. She was very polite at all times. Returned calls when busy to answer all of my additional concerns. 3. Howard showed good strength in setting up the strategy for my case (even he was undergoing a difficult medical operation - hip replacement). 4. Team up with forensic scientists and got evaluations scheduled and got results quickly. 5. Howard coordinated very successfully a major team work with my divorce and immigration attorneys. 6. He demonstrated power and knowledge, made the additional steps, additional phone calls, homework and lot extra ground work to ensure my case win. He orchestrated and coordinated all actions. I even met with him in his office on the weekend to set up a new even better strategy to pursue after some of the inconclusive forensic results. 7. Simply Howard showed extreme commitment on a small case like mine. He delivered the best possible results and outcome. Howard Jarrett Weintraub is the absolute bulldog, the power, the brain I needed because my future depended on the result of this case. He proves his talent and focus as a defense attorney. I have no criminal record thanks to Howard. The result was very important because of my immigration status in United States and my future. After my case was over Howard even invite me to have a lunch with him and his staff on one of the nice fall early afternoons. If you have the money, you are serious and in trouble don't waste your time with yellow pages looking for defense attorneys an call Howard's office.

  • Was Facing Prison. . NOW in Law School!
    UPDATE: This testimonial is provided as an update to a previous review, it is important for people to know that there are other positive outcomes as a result of Mr. Weintraub's representation! I've been accepted to Pace Law School, where I'll be studying environmental law beginning this fall. I could not be happier about that. Pace's environmental law program is ranked third in the nation, and I'm certain that it will prepare me well for a career in the field. I am grateful for every one of you and the help you provided, whether it was writing a letter of recommendation, preparing me for the LSAT, giving (invaluable) feedback on my essay, or just providing support to me in this pursuit in general--I could not have done it without you, and I could not be more appreciative of all of the help that you gave. Thank you, and best wishes. Conviction Expunged, Mr. Weintraub is Incredibly Talented and Effective! I first met Howard Weintraub in January 2006. From that first meeting until the termination of my case in December 2009, Mr. Weintraub demonstrated complete professionalism and a thorough determination to have my case proceed with as little damage to me as possible. He knows the legal system inside and out, and worked diligently to ensure every option available was pursued. I was comfortable with Mr. Weintraub from the first meeting, and was always made to feel confident but realistic about potential outcomes. I did a lot of research on my own, and I had many questions and concerns, and Mr. Weintraub always answered my questions and addressed my concerns promptly. In my case, a conviction carried a minimum mandatory sentence of one year in prison. Mr. Weintraub was able to work with the prosecutors and judge to get me a sentence that allowed me to avoid any jail or prison time. The value of that outcome is immeasurable. Now, less than three years after reaching this deal, the conviction is expunged and Mr. Weintraub is working to get the arrest expunged as well. It's possible that I'll be able to carry on with my life without so much as an arrest appearing on my record. As it is, my conviction will not appear on background checks, which means I will not be affected by my conviction in any meaningful, lasting way. Mr. Weintraub worked with probation officers to successfully get my sentence terminated early, and his willingness to work on my behalf at every stage of my case, even post-sentencing, was expressed from the beginning. Simply put, Mr. Weintraub showed a commitment to my case that I would not have received from most attorneys, and as a result, I received what I believe is the best possible outcome in my case—indeed, I could not have anticipated an outcome as positive as mine has been. Mr. Weintraub is incredibly talented and as effective as I believe anyone could be. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a defense attorney.

  • Great Lawyer-Knows His Stuff-No Sugarcoating
    If you are looking for a lawyer that sugarcoats and gives his/her clients unreasonable expectations, Howard James Weintraub is not for you. Upon review of my case, Mr. Weintraub provided me with a thorough, understandable and law based prognosis that immediately relieved my anxiety as to the final disposition of the case, all this before I even retained him. He kept me abreast of every single detail on the case and provided a shoulder to bare my burdens. He was not only my lawyer throughout, but to this day and henceforth a friend. His ability to set forth the facts of my case and engage both the Judge and the prosecutor, led to the most desirable result we could image, not a single day in jail and the least possible fine. He made it possible that I was never handcuffed nor treated like a common criminal throughout my ordeal. I highly recommend Howard Jarret Weintruab to anyone who needs not just an attorney, but also a defender.

    I had put myself in an extremely bad situation where I could have been going to jail for a very long time. I prayed to God to point me in the right direction in choosing a lawyer in Atlanta. He guided me towards Howard Weintraub. Howard treated me like a daughter and helped me in more ways than I could have imagined. I was terrified of what the outcome would be, never having been through anything like it before. Howard made it very easy, keeping me calm through the whole process and the outcome couldn't have been better. Thanks to Howard, I got off with no time, no record, and no probation. It was like the entire situation never happened. I thank God for guiding me to Howard Weintraub!

  • Howard Weintraub, Tops My ‘Super Criminal Attorney’ List!
    My case involved an extremely complicated environment that highlights the pitfalls of trusting a business acquaintance that was secretly (to my lack of knowledge), involved in the illegal use of a company’s patents across state lines. My personal background was one of being totally blemish free; basically, I had never, ever received a driver citation or even a warming; to put it lightly, I was scared to death and totally stressed out. This was the type of ultra shock that leaves you breathless and totally numb for several days before picking yourself up off the ground and deciding the available options to save your life. After discussing my case with couple of local criminal attorneys, I was quickly advised that my case was definitely “not” for the small town or inexperienced criminal lawyer and without any hesitation, was told to seek the counsel of so-called super criminal attorneys with significant experience in dealing with a case of this magnitude. From a list of approximately (6) super criminal attorneys in our area, Mr. Howard Weintraub was at the top of this list! Although the outcome of this case is still pending, Mr. Weintraub has been by my side all the way; I simply would have been totally lost without his guidance and support as a tough-nosed litigator. After experiencing this type of a legal abyss that will try men’s souls, I will highly recommend Mr. Howard Weintraub to any potential client seeking the services of a first class criminal attorney. I simply will never, never forget him. Client in Atlanta, GA

  • Life Without Parole in Federal Court - Murder Charged DROPPED!!!
    In 2006, my son unfortunately became involved with two other young men and found himself charged with aiding and abetting in the robbery and killing of a taxicab driver. Because this crime occurred at a military base, my son, who was in his early twenties at the time, was prosecuted in federal court and was facing a life sentence without parole, if he were to be convicted of this murder. I hired Howard Weintraub to represent my son. Saying thank you to Mr. Weintraub does not come close to expressing how much my family and I appreciated his professionalism, hard work and dedicated support throughout my son’s case. It is without a doubt, Mr. Weintraub showed a commitment to the case that we feel my son would not have received from most attorneys and surely not a court appointed attorney. As a result, based on similar cases, my son received what we believed to be a better than normal outcome as Mr. Weintraub persuaded the federal government to drop all the charges but robbery. My son pled guilty to robbery and was sentenced to 180 months and not life imprisonment. He will serve 153 months and come home to us. We are forever grateful to Mr. Weintraub and I strongly recommend anyone in need of a top shelf attorney to seek the services of Howard J. Weintraub!

  • Exceptional Representation for Out of State Client
    I am forever grateful for Howard Weintraub and his legal team. Beginning with my initial call to his law office and ending with his courtesy call after my case, I continually felt that Howard was not only interested in winning the case, but also interested in my general welfare. My case was different in that I was living in Chicago, IL but needed representation in Atlanta, GA. I did not meet Howard until the day before my case; all previous correspondence was via phone and email. His professionalism made distance a non-issue. He was thoroughly prepared for my day in court and was very candid about legal possibilities and ramifications throughout my two month ordeal. I never imagined that I would have to defend myself in a court of law; Howard is the only reason that my outcome was successful. He is the FIRST person that I will call should I ever again need legal advice or representation. - Chicago, IL

  • This man is worth the money.. you can call me for a reference!
    I hired Howard after making the very stupid decision of placing a bomb in my girlfriends car ( Dont worry it was unoccupied, and I meant it to be like a cherry bomb in a mailbox - believe me I know there is no justifying this very stupid decision). I had the ATF breathing down my neck hot and heavy. Not the group of individuals you want after you, if they think your there man, they'll fix the case, and the evidence, believe me I know, they are trouble. At any rate, the ATF discovered that I was a Felon, and that I had possessed a couple of guns, even though I honestly thought I was not!! At any rate the law does not care what you think about your criminal history, a felon in possession is a for sure your doing time. I refused to accept that label, and insisted to Howard that we go to trial. It took some PI work, and alot of leg work, and a damn good lawyer to present it to the Jury. But, I write here to tell you that Howard Wientraube got a NOT GUILTY verdict from the Federal Grand JURY on all the counts of possession. I did no time for those guns.. I was warned not to ever possess one again, and let go!!!!!!!! People, I have read your posts about money. It is a very expensive task to go up against the State, and an overwhelming task to go up against the FEDS, they print the money. But, this is your only shot. Wait till your doing ten plus years in Prison, and getting quotes of 25,000 dollars plus to file an appeal. An appeal is just paper writing, no PI work, interviews, depositions, trial time.. Don't be stingy, spend the money- your freedom is worth every penny. Take it from someone who has experienced the entire process. I'm now married to that girl who's car I damaged, have two kids, a house, a great job.. I'm happy, and I consider Howard a great friend. This man is worth the money.. you can call me for a reference!

  • Weintraub Superbly Delivered Results
    My 18 year old daughter lives in Atlanta and was charged with possession of marijuana. Living in Florida I did not know any Atlanta lawyer who could help my child. A friend of mine recommended that I hire Howard Weintraub. I am so grateful for his suggestion. Logistically I could not be with my daughter during each court proceeding and I wanted an attorney who would “hold my daughter’s hand.” I also wanted a tough-nosed litigator to get her out of this situation with no criminal record. Mr. Weintraub superbly satisfied my needs. Mr. Weintraub was extremely kind to my child, paid special attention to her case as if it was his own child’s case, and kept me abreast of everything he was doing. Mr. Weintraub convinced the prosecutor to dismiss the charge as he argued the search of my daughter’s residence was illegal. Because of Mr. Weintraub my child does not have any criminal record. I highly recommend Howard Weintraub to anyone needing an excellent, professional and caring attorney.

  • Because of Mr. Weintraub’s skills my son’s nightmare ended
    In our house we call Atlanta attorney Howard Weintraub the “mailman” because he delivered in representing my son Waltrant Cash. In 2005 my son was wrongfully convicted by a jury in Carroll County Superior Court of aggravated child molestation and he was sentenced to ten years. After sentencing I replaced his trial lawyer with Howard Weintraub. Mr. Weintraub filed for a new trial but the judge denied any relief. Mr. Weintraub appealed to the Court of Appeals of Georgia and on November 20, 2008 they reversed my son’s conviction. My son’s case is reported at Cash v. State, 294 Ga. App. 741, 669 S.E.2d 731 (2008). Because of Mr. Weintraub’s skills my son’s nightmare ended on February 03, 2009 when he was released from prison. I thank Mr. Weintraub for saving my son’s life and for reuniting my family. I highly recommend Howard Weintraub to anyone needing an excellent criminal defense lawyer who will vigorously and ethically fight for his client.

  • Howard Weintraub by far to be one of Atlanta’s best Criminal Defense/DUI attorneys.
    Never in my wildest dreams could I have ever imagined that one day I would be in need of a criminal defense attorney! As a professional business woman I have worked with many outstanding lawyers, but I consider Howard Weintraub by far to be one of Atlanta’s best Criminal Defense/DUI attorneys. Because my case en compassed a substantial amount of time, I became very familiar with his style of practice. It wasn’t long before I soon realized how special this lawyer is, not only for my case and me, but also for his other clients as well. While working on my case I noticed that he was able to structure out a successful legal strategy based on my best interest and did so by combining his infinite wisdom and legal foresight to advise me. It was truly astonishing to see that plan executed when we made our courtroom appearances! As you would expect, Howard is very well regarded in the legal community. When we would enter the courthouse I was truly amazed how well the judges respected him, as well as, his peers. With an unrelenting passion for the rights of his clients and an extraordinary knowledge of the law, Howard produces favorable results -- it is understandably clear why Howard Weintraub has a reputation of being an excellent attorney. Howard possesses excellent legal skills and an extraordinary compassion for people. His legal insight coupled with his years of experience and a winning reputation, makes Howard Weintraub an outstanding lawyer in my book, and one of the top criminal defense attorneys in Atlanta. Howard’s kindhearted nature and happy disposition makes him an extraordinary advocate. Because of his unrelenting tenacity and dedication to produce the greatest result and outcome for my case, I also consider him to be my friend. It is with great pleasure that I endorse the services of Howard J. Weintraub, and I encourage anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney or requiring legal assistance with a DUI to contact him. Like so many clients before me, procuring the services of Howard Weintraub allowed me to discover what makes this man an excellent lawyer!

  • Brilliant Legal Representation
    I was arrested for DUI in September, 2006. After searching for a good lawyer to represent me, a friend of mine highly recommended that I use Howard Weintraub as my attorney. What a wonderful choice that was! According to the Georgia State Patrol trooper who pulled me over because I was speeding, I had a strong odor of alcohol on my breath, my eyes were watery and bloodshot, and I stumbled when I walked outside of my car. Also, the trooper claimed that I had 6 out of 6 clues on the eye examination and that I swayed very badly during that test. I also registered .141 on the alcosensor. After the trooper arrested me, I agreed to take the breath test at the police station and I blew almost 1 1/4 times the legal limit. After representing me for over 2 1/2 years, in December, 2008 Howard Weintraub was successful in convincing the judge in Fulton County State Court to dismiss my entire case. Because of Howard Weintraub’s efforts I was not found guilty of anything: not even of speeding (which I clearly was guilty of). Because of Howard Weintraub’s representation of me I never lost my license and I continue to have a clean record, free of any criminal convictions. Thank you Howard Weintraub for being a caring and wonderful attorney.

  • Wholeheartedly Recommend Howard Weintraub
    One morning, at approximately 1:30 a.m., I was pulled over by a police officer in DeKalb County for supposedly speeding and failing to pull over when passing a stationary police vehicle that had activated emergency lights. The officer asked me how much I had to drink that night and after I responded he proceeded to investigate me for DUI. The officer concluded that I didn’t do well on the eye test and the two balancing tests and he said that I tested positive on the hand-held breath testing device. I then was arrested for DUI and I took a breath test at the police station where I registered 1 1/2 times the legal limit, as I tested at .124. My job duties required me to drive outside of Georgia and a DUI conviction would have cost me my job. I needed a real good lawyer to get me out of this mess. After speaking with several attorneys who handled DUI cases, I decided to hire Howard Weintraub. I certainly made the right decision and retained the right lawyer. Mr. Weintraub did a fantastic job in defending my case. He filed a motion asking the judge to throw out all of the evidence gathered by the officer: including the officer’s observations of me (such as his claims that I was speeding, did not yield to the officer’s stationary vehicle, had an odor of alcohol, bloodshot eyes, slurred speech); my admission that I had been drinking; my performances on all of the field sobriety evaluations; and my .124 breath test result. The judge held a hearing and agreed with all of Howard Weintraub’s arguments, disagreed with the arguments of the prosecutors, and then suppressed all of the evidence against me. The prosecutors appealed my case to the Georgia Court of Appeals and, in January of 2009, the Court of Appeals agreed with the judge and affirmed the ruling that threw out all of the evidence. My nightmare is over. Because of Howard Weintraub I was not convicted of anything arising out of the incident, much less a DUI. Now I can live with no suspension of my Georgia driver’s license. Because of Howard Weintraub I was not convicted of DUI and still have a clean record. I wholeheartedly recommend Howard Weintraub to anyone needing an excellent, well learned, dedicated, hard working and honest criminal defense lawyer and especially to anyone looking for a great lawyer to defend them in a DUI case.

  • Excellent Federal Attorney
    Anyone who has been charged with serious crimes by the federal government knows how stressful this can be to both oneself and especially to one’s family and loved ones. As such, I needed an attorney who I could trust my life with. This was no easy task as I only knew the negative connotations associated with attorneys. After hiring Attorney Howard Weintraub I realized that my previously formed negative thoughts about attorneys were no longer true as I had found an attorney who did more than he promised. Not only were Howard Weintraub’s fees reasonable, and the number of hours he spent on my case well exceeded the fees he charged, but he took my case personally. His knowledge about the federal laws and the federal sentencing guidelines is remarkable. The weeks that we spent together preparing my case for court made me realize that I had found an exceptional attorney who eased my stress and believed in me. His relentless pursuit for justice in my case resulted in a very favorable outcome for me. As such I not only hired an attorney, but I gained a friend who my family and I will always hold very close to our hearts. I have no hesitation in discussing my experience with Howard Weintraub and I would welcome contact with anyone who is searching for an attorney who will be straight forward and honest and will give 100% of his efforts to ensure that you have the best legal representation available.

  • Masterful Representation Saved Me From Prison
    Several years ago while I was a high school teacher I was wrongfully accused of sexual misconduct with a 15 year old student. I hired Howard Weintraub to be my lawyer. Because of the masterful job that Mr. Weintraub did in pretrial hearings in attacking my accuser’s story, the State offered me a deal that if I pled guilty to a lesser charge and surrendered my teaching license I would get probation. The judge told Mr. Weintraub and me that if I turned down this deal and went to trial the judge would give me at least 20 years in prison if the jury said I was guilty. I turned down the deal and placed my life and the lives of my wife and children in the hands of Mr. Weintraub. Mr. Weintraub did a fantastic job of representing me during my two week long trial and the jury found me to be not guilty of all of the false charges brought against me. I owe my life to Mr. Weintraub and I highly recommend him to anyone needing a hardworking, honest and aggressive attorney.

  • Atlanta's best lawyer!
    In 2008, my daughter found herself in need of a lawyer. Since this case was especially personal to me, it was vital that the lawyer we retained have a thorough knowledge of the law and that he would be able to resolve this matter in the best interest of my daughter. Because time was essential in our case, he responded quickly and professionally. Recognizing that Mr. Weintraub was a former prosecutor and U.S. Attorney, it gave me great comfort and peace of mind knowing that he possessed the experience and knowledge of both sides of the legal system. It is impossible for me to adequately express the gratitude, respect and trust that my family and me feel towards Mr. Weintraub; he is an outstanding lawyer!

  • Weintraub Superbly Delivered Results; Daughter Is Free From Criminal Record!
    My 18 year old daughter lives in Atlanta and was charged with possession of marijuana. Living in Florida I did not know any Atlanta lawyer who could help my child. A friend of mine recommended that I hire Howard Weintraub. I am so grateful for his suggestion. Logistically I could not be with my daughter during each court proceeding and I wanted an attorney who would “hold my daughter’s hand.” I also wanted a tough-nosed litigator to get her out of this situation with no criminal record. Mr. Weintraub superbly satisfied my needs. Mr. Weintraub was extremely kind to my child, paid special attention to her case as if it was his own child’s case, and kept me abreast of everything he was doing. Mr. Weintraub convinced the prosecutor to dismiss the charge as he argued the search of my daughter’s residence was illegal. Because of Mr. Weintraub my child does not have any criminal record. I highly recommend Howard Weintraub to anyone needing an excellent, professional and caring attorney.

  • Howard Weintraub, Tops My ‘Super Criminal Attorney’ List!
    My case involved an extremely complicated environment that highlights the pitfalls of trusting a business acquaintance that was secretly (to my lack of knowledge), involved in the illegal use of a company’s patents across state lines. My personal background was one of being totally blemish free; basically, I had never, ever received a driver citation or even a warming; to put it lightly, I was scared to death and totally stressed out. This was the type of ultra shock that leaves you breathless and totally numb for several days before picking yourself up off the ground and deciding the available options to save your life. After discussing my case with couple of local criminal attorneys, I was quickly advised that my case was definitely “not” for the small town or inexperienced criminal lawyer and without any hesitation, was told to seek the counsel of so-called super criminal attorneys with significant experience in dealing with a case of this magnitude. From a list of approximately (6) super criminal attorneys in our area, Mr. Howard Weintraub was at the top of this list! Although the outcome of this case is still pending, Mr. Weintraub has been by my side all the way; I simply would have been totally lost without his guidance and support as a tough-nosed litigator. After experiencing this type of a legal abyss that will try men’s souls, I will highly recommend Mr. Howard Weintraub to any potential client seeking the services of a first class criminal attorney. I simply will never, never forget him.
  • Life Without Parole in Federal Court - Murder Charged DROPPED!!!
    In 2006, my son unfortunately became involved with two other young men and found himself charged with aiding and abetting in the robbery and killing of a taxicab driver. Because this crime occurred at a military base, my son, who was in his early twenties at the time, was prosecuted in federal court and was facing a life sentence without parole, if he were to be convicted of this murder. I hired Howard Weintraub to represent my son. Saying thank you to Mr. Weintraub does not come close to expressing how much my family and I appreciated his professionalism, hard work and dedicated support throughout my son’s case. It is without a doubt, Mr. Weintraub showed a commitment to the case that we feel my son would not have received from most attorneys and surely not a court appointed attorney. As a result, based on similar cases, my son received what we believed to be a better than normal outcome as Mr. Weintraub persuaded the federal government to drop all the charges but robbery. My son pled guilty to robbery and was sentenced to 180 months and not life imprisonment. He will serve 153 months and come home to us. We are forever grateful to Mr. Weintraub and I strongly recommend anyone in need of a top shelf attorney to seek the services of Howard J. Weintraub!
  • Exceptional Representation for Out of State Client
    I am forever grateful for Howard Weintraub and his legal team. Beginning with my initial call to his law office and ending with his courtesy call after my case, I continually felt that Howard was not only interested in winning the case, but also interested in my general welfare. My case was different in that I was living in Chicago, IL but needed representation in Atlanta, GA. I did not meet Howard until the day before my case; all previous correspondence was via phone and email. His professionalism made distance a non-issue. He was thoroughly prepared for my day in court and was very candid about legal possibilities and ramifications throughout my two month ordeal. I never imagined that I would have to defend myself in a court of law; Howard is the only reason that my outcome was successful. He is the FIRST person that I will call should I ever again need legal advice or representation.
  • Howard Weintraub is a Fantastic Lawyer!
    One whose profession is to give legal advice and assistance to clients and represent them in court or in other legal matters is a definition I found online of a lawyer. Howard Weintraub is all this plus more. Our relationship began Oct 9, 2008 after I found his website. The DEA had just caught me and my father in the act of selling marijuana, and I was desperate for some help. I actually left a message with his answering service at midnight; he called me within minutes. He has been there for me ever since. He is much more than a lawyer, but a personal role model of mine. It showed my family a lot about his character that he called me that night, and I am honored to tell others of his performance. He saw to it that I did less than 24 hours in jail, and got my Dad the most reasonable sentence within his power. Also because of him we got to keep our house, and I was able to go pick up several guns that got seized at the time of his arrest, which is very unusual. I am pregnant, and he calls me to check on the baby; which in my opinion goes above and beyond his job. He also bought me and my boyfriend lunch one of the times we had to go to court, and I also think this proves his good nature. This is a compassionate man who knows about the law and truly cares about his clients. God forbid I get into any more trouble, but if I do… I have his number on speed dial. It was truly a privilege to meet Howard, and I would recommend him to anyone.

    I had put myself in an extremely bad situation where I could have been going to jail for a very long time. I prayed to God to point me in the right direction in choosing a lawyer in Atlanta. He guided me towards Howard Weintraub. Howard treated me like a daughter and helped me in more ways than I could have imagined. I was terrified of what the outcome would be, never having been through anything like it before. Howard made it very easy, keeping me calm through the whole process and the outcome couldn't have been better. Thanks to Howard, I got off with no time, no record, and no probation. It was like the entire situation never happened. I thank God for guiding me to Howard Weintraub!

  • Howard Jarrett Weintraub is the Absolute Bulldog, the Power, the Brain I Needed Because My Future Depended on the Result of My Case!
    "My name is Peter and I'm a small business owner from Germany and I do not write English very well. I become a client of Howard Weintraub by coincidence shortly after I was charged and accused with the offence of family violence battery. If I was convicted, I would be deported. This would have ruined my life. A friend of mine gladly recommended Howard Weintraub as a defense lawyer.
    This was an excellent recommendation because:
    1. Howard demonstrated excellent knowledge of the overall situation in my case. Timing of the events and the proper sequence what needs to be done.
    2. His secretary vividly demonstrated urgency of administrative steps. She was very polite at all times. Returned calls when busy to answer all of my additional concerns.
    3. Howard showed good strength in setting up the strategy for my case (even he was undergoing a difficult medical operation - hip replacement).
    4. Team up with forensic scientists and got evaluations scheduled and got results quickly.
    5. Howard coordinated very successfully a major team work with my divorce and immigration attorneys.
    6. He demonstrated power and knowledge, made the additional steps, additional phone calls, homework and lot extra ground work to ensure my case win. He orchestrated and coordinated all actions. I even met with him in his office on the weekend to set up a new even better strategy to pursue after some of the inconclusive forensic results.
    7. Simply Howard showed extreme commitment on a small case like mine. He delivered the best possible results and outcome.
    Howard Jarrett Weintraub is the absolute bulldog, the power, the brain I needed because my future depended on the result of this case. He proves his talent and focus as a defense attorney. I have no criminal record thanks to Howard. The result was very important because of my immigration status in United States and my future. After my case was over Howard even invite me to have a lunch with him and his staff on one of the nice fall early afternoons.
    If you have the money, you are serious and in trouble don't waste your time with yellow pages looking for defense attorneys and call Howard's office."

    UPDATE: This testimonial is provided as an update to a previous review, it is important for people to know that there are other positive outcomes as a result of Mr. Weintraub's representation! I've been accepted to Pace Law School, where I'll be studying environmental law beginning this fall. I could not be happier about that. Pace's environmental law program is ranked third in the nation, and I'm certain that it will prepare me well for a career in the field. I am grateful for every one of you and the help you provided, whether it was writing a letter of recommendation, preparing me for the LSAT, giving (invaluable) feedback on my essay, or just providing support to me in this pursuit in general--I could not have done it without you, and I could not be more appreciative of all of the help that you gave. Thank you, and best wishes.

  • Conviction Expunged, Mr. Weintraub is Incredibly Talented and Effective!
    I first met Howard Weintraub in January 2006. From that first meeting until the termination of my case in December 2009, Mr. Weintraub demonstrated complete professionalism and a thorough determination to have my case proceed with as little damage to me as possible. He knows the legal system inside and out, and worked diligently to ensure every option available was pursued. I was comfortable with Mr. Weintraub from the first meeting, and was always made to feel confident but realistic about potential outcomes. I did a lot of research on my own, and I had many questions and concerns, and Mr. Weintraub always answered my questions and addressed my concerns promptly. In my case, a conviction carried a minimum mandatory sentence of one year in prison. Mr. Weintraub was able to work with the prosecutors and judge to get me a sentence that allowed me to avoid any jail or prison time. The value of that outcome is immeasurable. Now, less than three years after reaching this deal, the conviction is expunged and Mr. Weintraub is working to get the arrest expunged as well. It's possible that I'll be able to carry on with my life without so much as an arrest appearing on my record. As it is, my conviction will not appear on background checks, which means I will not be affected by my conviction in any meaningful, lasting way. Mr. Weintraub worked with probation officers to successfully get my sentence terminated early, and his willingness to work on my behalf at every stage of my case, even post-sentencing, was expressed from the beginning. Simply put, Mr. Weintraub showed a commitment to my case that I would not have received from most attorneys, and as a result, I received what I believe is the best possible outcome in my case—indeed, I could not have anticipated an outcome as positive as mine has been. Mr. Weintraub is incredibly talented and as effective as I believe anyone could be. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a defense attorney.

  • Great Lawyer-Knows His Stuff-No Sugarcoating
    If you are looking for a lawyer that sugarcoats and gives his/her clients unreasonable expectations, Howard James Weintraub is not for you. Upon review of my case, Mr. Weintraub provided me with a thorough, understandable and law based prognosis that immediately relieved my anxiety as to the final disposition of the case, all this before I even retained him. He kept me abreast of every single detail on the case and provided a shoulder to bare my burdens. He was not only my lawyer throughout, but to this day and henceforth a friend. His ability to set forth the facts of my case and engage both the Judge and the prosecutor, led to the most desirable result we could image, not a single day in jail and the least possible fine. He made it possible that I was never handcuffed nor treated like a common criminal throughout my ordeal. I highly recommend Howard Jarrett Weintraub to anyone who needs not just an attorney, but also a defender.

  • You Could Do Worse… I Love This Guy!
    I hired Howard after making the very stupid decision of placing a bomb in my girlfriends car ( Don’t worry it was unoccupied, and I meant it to be like a cherry bomb in a mailbox - believe me I know there is no justifying this very stupid decision). I had the ATF breathing down my neck hot and heavy. Not the group of individuals you want after you, if they think your there man, they'll fix the case, and the evidence, believe me I know, they are trouble. At any rate, the ATF discovered that I was a Felon, and that I had possessed a couple of guns, even though I honestly thought I was not!! At any rate the law does not care what you think about your criminal history, a felon in possession is a for sure your doing time. I refused to accept that label, and insisted to Howard that we go to trial. It took some PI work, and a lot of leg work, and a damn good lawyer to present it to the Jury. But, I write here to tell you that Howard Weintraub got a NOT GUILTY verdict from the Federal Grand JURY on all the counts of possession. I did no time for those guns.. I was warned not to ever possess one again, and let go!!!!!!!! People, I have read your posts about money. It is a very expensive task to go up against the State, and an overwhelming task to go up against the FEDS, they print the money. But, this is your only shot. Wait till your doing ten plus years in Prison, and getting quotes of 25,000 dollars plus to file an appeal. An appeal is just paper writing, no PI work, interviews, depositions, trial time.. Don't be stingy, spend the money- your freedom is worth every penny. Take it from someone who has experienced the entire process. I'm now married to that girl who's car I damaged, have two kids, a house, a great job. . . I'm happy, and I consider Howard a great friend. This man is worth the money. . . . you can call me for a reference!

    I was a client of Ben and Howard, and it's two words I have to sum up and describe them both, and that's "amazing men"! Over a year ago I made a silly decision whilst traveling, not from the US, but that 's where I ended up being incarcerated. A couple of days went cross, and I hadn't heard from anyone, because it was international I couldn't even call home, and then one day I got a visit, and it was Ben, I hadn't met or seen this person in my life, but his demeanor was so comforting. About a couple of days later I met Howard, the way that he talked you knew he was experienced, he meant business, and was willing to save my life with everything in him. As we talked the look in his eyes brought me to tears, because it was one of a disappointed dad that was angry, but was going to do whatever it took to see his kid smile again. My mom picked the perfect team for me. I knew it because they generally cared. It was a scary journey through that year, at moments when I wanted to give up and give in, Howard and Ben kept telling me not to, and I kept holding on to their strength and words. God sent us a team of Angels. I would recommend Ben and Howard to anyone. They fought for my life, and now I am back home with my beautiful children and family, like they promised. All I can say is thank you and you guys are the best.
