Mr. Weinrieb interviewed at least 10 members of his client’s family, all of whom provided statements that they did not believe the false allegations against Mr. Weinrieb’s client and that the alleged victim has a history of lying and false allegations.

RAPE CASE DISMISSED. Airport Courthouse. Mr. Weinrieb’s client was charged with raping his wife. Mr. Weinrieb worked closely with the detectives assigned to the case as well as the Department of Child Services to show the District Attorney that the alleged victim’s allegations were complete lies intended only to gain custody of the couple’s minor children.

ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON CASE DISMISSED. Pasadena Courthouse. Mr. Weinrieb’s client was charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon (a vehicle) resulting in great bodily injury to the alleged victim.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CASE DISMISSED.  LAX Courthouse.  Mr. Weinrieb drafted a detailed letter to the District Attorney’s Office before any  formal felony complaint was filed against his client who was wrongfully arrested for domestic violence.  After the District Attorney reviewed Mr. Weinrieb’s letter about his client and the false allegations against her all charges were dismissed and no case was filed allowing his client to resume her life

Mr. Weinrieb’s client was charged with domestic violence.  When Mr. Weinrieb announced “ready for trial” the prosecutor backed down and agreed to change his settlement offer from a charge of Domestic Violence to Disturbing the Peace.  Accordingly, Mr. Weinrieb’s client avoided any jail time and, most importantly, any history of violence on his criminal record.  Inglewood Courthouse.

CASE DISMISSED BASED ON ILLEGAL SEARCH AND SEIZURE OF CLIENT’S HOME. Mr. Weinrieb’s client was charged with possession of marijuana for sale and was facing substantial jail time. Mr. Weinrieb filed a motion to prevent the prosecutor from entering any evidence of the marijuana into the case because the police located the drugs when they illegally entered his client’s home without a warrant after his client was already handcuffed in a police car. The judge granted Mr. Weinrieb’s motion and the case was dismissed. Client was fee to go. LAX Courthouse.
