(February 2019, San Fernando Courthouse) – Probation granted to Mr. Weinrieb’s client charged with transporting 1 kilogram of heroin from Los Angeles to Northern California. The District Attorney’s initial plea offer was 6 years in county jail. Mr. Weinrieb filed a “motion to suppress the evidence” based on an illegal search of his client’s vehicle. Based on the motion, the Judge overruled the District Attorney and offered Mr. Weinrieb’s client probation with 1 year – not 6 years – in custody.

(January 2019) 3RD STRIKE CASE DISMISSED AT PRELIMINARY HEARING! Mr. Weinrieb's client had two strikes and was facing a life sentence on a new burglary case. The District Attorney's offer was initially at life sentence and later 12 years in prison.

(September 2018, Van Nuys Court) CASE DISMISSED.  Mr. Weinrieb's client was charged will illegally possessing a mass quantity of prescription medications.  In truth, his client was in possession of the medications because he works for a sober living facility and was holding the medications to distribute to the patients.  After carefully presenting these facts to the prosecutor, the prosecutor agreed to dismiss all charges and to return the medications, cash, phones and keys belonging to Mr. Weinrieb's client.

(July 2018, Van Nuys Courthouse) Mr. Weinrieb's client was charged with felony residential burglary AND violating probation on a prior burglary conviction.  Before Mr. Weinrieb was hired the District Attorney offered his client 32 months in state prison.  After Mr. Weinrieb has hired and he worked extensively with the District Attorney and Judge to settle the case, his client received only 180 days in county jail.  A huge victory.

(April 2018) Case Rejected! Mr. Weinrieb’s client was charged with a hit and run causing death when he unfortunately ran over a homeless individual who was intoxicated and laying in a dimly lit street.  Mr. Weinrieb worked closely with the LAPD and the District Attorney’s Office and the case was rejected for filing.  This was the correct result, as this was a tragic accident but not a criminal act.  A note of gratitude to the LAPD and District Attorney’s Office for making the correct decision to reject this case for filing.
