Extradition defeated and felony case in S. Dakota dismissed and closed.
Week of April 18, 2016 - King County Superior Court. Phil Weinberg's client was in jail in King County facing extradition for numerous alleged and real probation violations in S. Dakota. Phil convinced the S. Dakota prosecutor, warrants section and probation officer to cancel her no-bail extradition hold here and close her S. Dakota felony drug case upon payment of a nominal fine. Client was released from jail within 24 hours without posting any bail or bond and is home with her family here, happy as a clam that she retained Phil Weinberg. This was all done via persuasive negotiation sparing the client the fees and risks of a major legal battle, and avoided her return to the Midwest where she was facing 4 years in prison.

I have more than 20 years of experience defending my clients' rights. I handle all cases personally from start to finish, ensuring that each of my clients gains the full benefit of my many years of experience. At my firm, there are no associates right out of law school showing up in court knowing practically nothing about you or your case, I know my way around the courts and how they work. Throughout my career, I have learned that the best approach is not always the most aggressive one, though sometimes there is no other choice. My first goal in every case is the dismissal of my client's charge(s). In many situations, however, I have found that negotiation offers better opportunities for success.When you work with me your case will never be passed off to a paralegal or a less-experienced associate. I am a solo practitioner and always have been.
