    Certified as a family law mediator by the Florida Supreme Court and trained in collaborative law, Mr. Weissman prefers to help his clients resolve their conflicts and reach favorable agreements in a manner that is far more efficient and economical and less adversarial than traditional divorce litigation.

Mr. Weissman has also received many other top rankings and endorsements from his peers, including designation as a top ranked high net worth family lawyer from Chambers and Partners, as well as numerous testimonials and referrals from his satisfied clients.

    A 1991 magna cum laude graduate of the State University of New York Albany, Mr. Weissman obtained his Juris Doctor in 1994 from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. A leader in his field, he has written extensively and conducted many lectures and continuing legal education seminars across his region on a variety of topics related to family law, and he has held numerous leadership positions in various professional legal organizations.
