Los Angeles crime lawyer Peter Weiss

Peter C. Weiss, Sr.

Attorney & Senior Counsel

The firm’s lead attorney and senior counsel, Mr. Weiss has been serving the people of California with criminal defense charges for over 35 years.

Beginning as an associate attorney at his first firm in LA back in 1979, Peter has one of the most respected track records in the Los Angeles area as a defense attorney. He is well respected by both his clients and his peers, and his testimonials and awards speak directly to that. Peter’s firm has been named one of California’s Most Distinguished Defense Teams over a dozen times in his practicing history.

Peter attributes his success to both his schooling and general overall level of preparation. He is often caught mentioning to his younger associate attorneys in the office that, “they may beat me from time to time, but I won’t ever let ’em out work me!” This enthusiastic level of care of each of his clients is what shows Mr. Weiss truly cares after all of these years. He says he may look older, but is as sharp and as fierce as ever as a courtroom and behind the scenes litigator. If you have been charged with a crime in the greater LA area and want expert representation, the Defense Lawyers of LA and Peter C. Weiss, Sr. are here for representation. Trust in counsel who has more years experience than many younger attorneys have lived in their lives. We know California criminal law and how to represent our clients. Contact our team today.
