Marty Weinberg

Martin G. Weinberg is a nationally prominent criminal defense lawyer, considered by many within the legal community to rank among the nation's best litigators and appellate advocates.

Super LawyersA 1971 Harvard Law School graduate, he has been recognized repeatedly for his accomplishments as a trial and appellate attorney, educator, and leader within the legal profession. As a chief trial and appellate counsel in hundreds of cases for more than four decades, Weinberg has been the lawyer of choice for industry leaders, including other prominent trial attorneys charged with crimes or misconduct, corporate executives, medical professionals and internet pioneers.

Selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers since 1988, Weinberg was honored as One of the Top 10 Lawyers in Massachusetts in 2011, and selected as a SuperLawyers since 2004.

Weinberg has represented accused defendants in over 20 federal district courts, eight U.S. Courts of Appeal, and in the U.S. Supreme Court, where he successfully argued the landmark Fourth Amendment case of United States v. Chadwick.

In 2010, he successfully challenged the Department of Justice’s reliance on the Stored Communications Act to seize the content of emails in violation of the Fourth Amendment in United States v Warshak. In 2011 alone, Weinberg led defense teams that achieved trial acquittals and pretrial dismissals for business executives charged in two separate high profile political corruption cases.

The former director of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Weinberg regularly works closely with the nation’s premier trial and appellate counsel as both a consultant and a member of case-specific litigation teams and joint defenses involving companies and their executives.

Recognized for his trustworthy, caring, and one-on-one approach, Weinberg's guidance and counsel is designed to minimize the burdens and stress on his clients.

For 40 years, Weinberg has provided his clients with experienced and
dedicated counsel — with a skillful and focused, hands-on, personal approach —
in many of the most challenging criminal law cases of our times.
