"A Man With Great Respect"
I had the good fortune to become a client of Jeffrey Weissman many years ago. I was in a difficult time of my life an even though I had a lawyer for many years, during which it seemed that a dark cloud could not be lifted. I consider meeting him not just good fortune, but a blessing.
In our initial consultation, it struck me that while I interviewed Mr. Weissman, HE was interviewing ME. It was a very refreshing moment for me because I understood that he would take my case only if he believed in the case and the people involved. I realize that he needed to understand why, after so many years with another law firm, I was still in need for a lawyer.
This deep interest and need to understand who he had in front of him before taking the case showed me the integrity of Mr. Weissman. I was not just a pay check or just one more case. I was a person who needed help and he assumed responsibility to help me and my kids by solving the problems instead of dragging the matter on unnecessarily. The dark cloud would have just consumed me, making me unable to take care of myself or my kids.
I learned to lean on and trust Mr. Weissman completely and listen to his advice. He listed to and understood my frustrations. He is a man with great respect for values like family, empathy, courage, forgiveness. He’s extremely intelligent and caring. He can comprehend complex matters and develop innovative strategies taking in consideration his client’s background, culture, strengths and weaknesses. By really understanding me and where I was coming from, he determined the right path for a successful result. I will be honest and admit that once or twice I did not agree with his advice, but I trusted in his experience and instincts. Let me tell you, he was absolutely right and I was glad to have listened to him!
It’s nearly unheard of to feel you can trust your lawyer blindly. However, with Mr. Weissman I felt that I could and I did. I’m grateful to God that he crossed my path with Mr. Weissman. He will be my lawyer for life and I will ask him for suggestions because integrity, honor and respect are hard to find. Once you find them in a person you cherish them.
