What Makes Attorney Scott Weinberg Uniquely Qualified To Represent You?

Scott Weinberg is known for defending all types of criminal cases throughout the State of Michigan, from high-profile media cases to simple matters taken care of with the right phone call. He has also been licensed to practice in the State of Illinois.

He got his start in criminal law as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in Macomb County in the 1990s. He prosecuted more than 75 Capital Felony trials. In that post, he prosecuted notorious cases, including the Big Brother Big Sister sexual assault scandal.

After prosecuting the People vs. Donald Debolt case, a case covered extensively on Court TV, Weinberg went to work for the firm of Bufalino & Palazzolo working as associate counsel to partner William E Bufalino II on many high profile criminal cases. Scott Weinberg founded Michigan Criminal Lawyers Association P.C. Since that time, Weinberg has managed thousands of criminal cases including over 200 capital felonies.

Throughout his career, Weinberg has provided expert legal commentary TV and radio, including as a guest commentator on Court TV, WJR and WXYT on noted cases such as People v. Jack Kevorkian, the Jenny Jones Murder case, the People v. Donald Debolt rape trial, and People v. Watts.

Recently, Weinberg hosted Weinberg on the Law, a weekly hour-long radio show on Clear Channel Radio, where he discusses newsworthy issues in the law and interviews colleagues, community leaders, politicians and government officials about matters on the law. Weinberg also hosts the syndicated internet radio show. The nationally broadcast show discusses legal issues and affecting our legal rights through interviews with news makers and internationally renowned attorneys.

Weinberg was also the defense attorney for the only adultery case in the history of the state of Michigan. It attracted national attention, involving a defendant accused of criminal conduct for molesting his sister-in-law. Weinberg represented his client in pleading to an adultery conviction, making history with the state’s only adultery conviction since its founding, and allowing the defendant to avoid prison and the requirement to register as a criminal offender for 25 years.

Weinberg considers it an honor and a privilege to provide solid, focused legal defense and guidance to individuals in dire need of help. He believes that one of the hallmarks of freedom in our country is that everyone deserves a solid defense.
