The Experienced and Knowledgeable Skokie Criminal Defense Attorney You Need

Working with a knowledgeable attorney is a must for those facing criminal charges in Skokie. Even if you believe your charges are “minor” or know that you are innocent, it is unwise to try to go it alone.

The fact is that no matter how much you think you know about the law, most people do not fully understand its intricacies fully enough to be their own counsel. Representing yourself in criminal matters opens you up to self-incrimination and, in many cases, a guilty verdict.

This matters because the consequences you may face if convicted of a crime can be serious and hugely detrimental to your life going forward. You may have to serve time in jail or prison, pay large fines, complete community service hours, or be subject to probation. Additionally, you will have a criminal record, which can negatively influence your future long after all the other penalties have passed.

No matter how straightforward the case may seem, you need Andrew M. Weisberg if you have been arrested in Skokie. He has a broad understanding of many different kinds of criminal cases. He can put that experience to work in your favor, crafting the strongest possible defense so that you have the best likelihood of beating your charges.

Clients Rave about Skokie Criminal Lawyer Andrew M. Weisberg

Simply the best!

Andrew was my 1st and only call I had to make when my son needed an attorney. He is extremely professional, kind and knowledgeable. Andrew takes the time to explain things, and is always available on his cell to answer any question to put your mind at ease. My son was charged with armed robbery and was facing over 20 years in prison, but Andrew was able to get the charges reduced and no jail time. I am extremely grateful to Andrew for his hard work and dedication to his profession. Do yourself a favor and stop searching, you will not be disappointed!

Great Lawyer.

I am a defense attorney in Will County Illinois. Whenever I get a matter in Cook County I always refer it to Andrew. He and I have known each other since the early 1990s when we worked together as Assistant State's Attorneys in the Criminal Division of the Will County State's Attorney's Office. Andrew really knows his stuff and truly cares about his clients. I can't speak highly enough about him as a person or an attorney.

 by Christi Wondrely on Law Offices of Andrew Weisberg

Andrew Weisberg is an amazing attorney and was very quick and extremely helpful in a very stressful time for my daughter. I would highly recommend Andrew for any situation. Thank you so much Andrew!

 by Dave piekarz on Law Offices of Andrew Weisberg

Called Mr. Weisburg 2 days before my court date and he took care of everything. Went above and beyond anything I asked for. Can't get a better lawyer than Weisberg.

 by Future Nurse on Law Offices of Andrew Weisberg

This message is just to THANK YOUUU! for all your help in my case! Finally I did my background check for nursing school, and came out CLEAR! You help me to give me my life back again and pursue my dreams of becoming a nurse! I am in the Nursing Program now, and if you ever find me in an hospital as a nurse, I will make sure you and your family receive just an excellent care! I just wanted to thank you for all, since the beginning when I called you, you were so kind. I will always recommend you as one of the best lawyers in the Chicago area! Thank you so much!

I went through several meetings with prospective lawyer representation before deciding to go with Andrew Weisberg. I was wrongly charged with a crime I did not commit and Andrew had the case dismissed quickly and thoroughly upon my hearing. Andrew went the extra mile in keeping my mind at ease through the whole process and made it easy for someone like myself not well versed regarding the legal system to understand. I would HIGHLY recommend Andrew to anyone in need of a dynamite defense attorney.

I have never had a need for an attorney before I met Andrew. He was able to put me at ease with his confidence and knowledge of the law. He also explained every step of the process and he really CARED about my thoughts and feelings. He is an incredible person and professional. I would highly recommend his services!

Highly Recommend

While I am not excited about the reasons for meeting Andrew, I am glad that I was introduced to him and his abilities. When I spoke with him for the first time, he told me what to expect and what he thought might happen. Being my first offense he was confident that he could help me. In between the time of that first conversation and the time we had to go to court, any questions I had, I was able to email him and he responded back right away. Even on the weekends. I was very impressed. Once we got to court, we were thrown a curveball, but he still managed to work with the less than favorable chances of getting me free of my offense, and I walked out of court without a mark on my record. I do not plan on getting sent back to court, but I would definitely refer anyone to Andrew! He saved me and my life!

I had never been in any sort of legal trouble before and neither has anyone in my family. Needless to say, when I was a arrested we didn't know what to do. My Father found Andrew on a whim and he explained the legal process to us very clearly and made is very comfortable throughout the hearings. Andrew is a great guy and if you want to win your case I highly recommend him. Thank you for everything.

Andrew Weisberg is an attorney with a heart who cares about his clients. He is not only very dynamic and professional in his work but also has his clients interest very close to his heart. When I first talked to Andrew about my case, Andrew was very honest with me and laid out various outcomes that were possible and put my mind at rest. Ever since I contacted him I did not have to worry about my case as I knew I was in very good hands. Andrew got my case dismissed and that was the best possible outcome I could get. Andrew went a step further and got my case expunged. In Andrew, I have found not only the best possible Criminal attorney but also a caring human being who I now regard as a friend who I can always turn to for advice. I strongly recommend Andrew to all prospective clients and can vouch for his sincerity and professionalism.

I highly recommend Andrew Weisberg to people who, like me, find themselves in trouble with law and desperately need a knowledgeable lawyer to hold their hands and get through the turmoil!

Like many non-sense charges, the case was dismissed at the court! Anyone who deeply cares about their record, career and reputation deserves a good lawyer like Andrew!

 by Domestic Violence Client on Law Offices of Andrew Weisberg

Very professional, knowledgeable, confident, down to earth, honest and realistic. As a family member of someone who was in need of a criminal defense attorney, I am truly grateful that we were able to find Andrew. We met with several attorneys before deciding to go with Andrew. We were impressed with his knowledge of the law, the nuances of the process of court proceedings and trials, and honesty about how he anticipated the case may go (good and bad). Most importantly, he listened and truly took into consideration our feelings and concerns. He cared and understood the impact that the case had on our family member and our family as a whole. He "won" the case for us and we can't thank him enough. I would highly recommend Andrew and can't say enough good things about hi

Andrew Weisberg was wonderful during a horrible experience. He always returned my phone calls quickly and was always there for me. He was hard working and got my case dismissed.

 by Criminal Defense Client on Law Offices of Andrew Weisberg

Andrew stepped in to help with our case after we had to replace a law firm that was not providing us with the support we needed. He jumped right in and sympathized with us regarding the nature of our case. He was very straight forward and told us what we were dealing with and what we were fighting against. Andrew was super responsive and was always easily reached via his cell phone. Above all he was not motivated by money but by doing what was right for us. He is certainly one of the strongest most ethical attorneys in Illinois. You can't go wrong.

Andrew handled my domestic battery case very well. He was/is always prompt with responding to calls or emails. Always made sure to take his time in explaining everything in great detail. Very honest with you about possible outcomes and scenarios. Definitely recommend Andrew!

I was starving for advice and a good direction to help a family member, that got arrested in Chicago,IL.

I was so blessed that I contacted Andrew M. Weisberg, he was so honest, helpful and he steered me to the right direction. I was very desperate for legal advice, When I found my family member got arrested; thank you Mr. Andrew. I wish I could shake your hand.

NFL Reviews Domestic Violence Policy in Light of the Ray Rice Case

Domestic Violence

Although it took place several months ago and footage was sent to NFL security chief in April, 2014, the video of Baltimore Ravens’ Ray Rice knocking his then-fiancée unconscious and dragging her body out of a casino elevator was released to the public only last month. Initially, Commissioner Roger Goodell gave Rice a two-game suspension, but following loud protests and wide criticism, the Baltimore Ravens released him, and Goodell suspended him indefinitely.

How Is Probable Cause Established in a Shoplifting Case?

Shoplifting / Retail Theft

Shoplifting cases may have relatively lower exposure to punishment compared to other criminal offenses, but the legal, social, and personal consequences may impact a person’s life for a long time. Aside from criminal penalties that typically include fines, imprisonment, or both, the offender will get a criminal record that will be stored in the national database and accessed at any time by the police, public institutions, employers, and landlords.  The stigma carried by a shoplifting conviction, which can limit housing, [...]
