Weinberg had done solely defense since graduating from Havard Law almost fifty years earlier.

NACDL Past President Martín Sabelli

Robert M. Goldstein

Marty is the go-to lawyer for those with complex legal and trial issues – there is no one better. Most importantly, he is an all-around terrific person.
