Mr. Weinberg began his legal career in 1981 after earning his Juris Doctor from St. John's University School of Law and his approval to practice law in New York State. In 1994, the State Bar of Arizona approved him to practice law there, and The State Bar of California followed suit in 2004.

In the years since Mr. Weinberg's career began, he has established himself as a leading attorney in the entertainment industry and branding. He has represented clients in a number of high-profile matters and cases and has negotiated countless business deals for hundreds of satisfied clients.
