If you've been arrested, received a summons or Desk Appearance Ticket, or been questioned by law enforcement, it can be an upsetting experience. Your mind is likely racing over some version of the following:

  • how does the process work?

  • Am I going to jail?

  • How much is this going to cost?

most importantly, ‘What happens next?’

Not all criminal defense attorneys are created equal. What you want is someone who is going to explore all possible solutions to get you the best outcome. Since you’re not a lawyer, it really all comes down to trust, and it can be hard to know who to trust. Andy Weinstein is one of the premier criminal defense attorneys in Passaic and Essex Counties in New Jersey, and in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, in New York.

Trust is something that is earned, so inevitably if you are hiring a lawyer you don’t know, you have to take a small leap of faith with them. But if you’re here, it probably means someone you know and trust referred you. Andy Weinstein is confident he will live up to the expectations of that friend or colleague.

One way we build trust is by charging a flat rate for most standard cases. The last thing we want is clients who are fearful to pick up the phone when they have a question because they don’t want to rack up a bill. When at all possible, we charge flat fees to eliminate financial stress — you have enough to worry about. We’re not here to penny-pinch our clients, we’re here to get the best possible outcome.
