Jeffrey A. Weissman Testimonials
Situations involving the need for a Family Law Attorney are never easy. When I was faced with divorce, the thought of my family falling apart was upsetting. I knew in my heart that regardless of the situation, I did not want to further jeopardize the health and wellbeing of my loved ones by becoming involved in a long, drawn out battle. There are no winners in a divorce. Thanks to Jeff Weissman and the rest of the courteous, patient, and caring staff at Gladstone & Weissman, my divorce was nowhere near as painful as I’m sure it would have been had I gone with another firm.
From the onset I felt at ease with Jeff and his staff. I was treated with dignity and compassion at all times by everyone I encountered at Gladstone & Weissman. Throughout the entire process I could tell that my personal situation was of genuine concern to them – they were not there to merely make money. Truth be told, I actually found a true friend in Jeff. He was very honest and the advice he gave me was always in my best interest (even if I didn’t always agree with it) rather than an attempt to log billable hours. I was always made to feel at home in their offices. My phone calls were never treated as an interruption; rather they were well received at all times – day or night.
Jeff and his colleagues are all extremely intelligent and are adept at successfully guiding you through the confusing and painful labyrinth of divorce and child custody to achieve the best outcome for the entire family. There were many opportunities that arose where Jeff could have taken advantage of the situation to make more money; however, he never took that route. Rather, Jeff honestly always had my family’s best interest at heart.
I am a successful businessman that has worked with countless law firms over the years and I have to admit that Gladstone & Weissman stands out among the crowd by far. They are the best law firm with the finest attorney’s I have ever had the pleasure of working with. There is little wonder why the firm and its staff receive accolades year after year. Jeff most certainly earned the title 2014 Family Lawyer of the Year bestowed upon him by Best Lawyers in America. I don’t think a more patient and compassionate attorney with his caliber of experience and intellect exists.
As I said before, in divorce and custody issues there is never a true winner. I am convinced that had I retained another firm to handle my situation I would have suffered disastrous results. I also would not have had the pleasure of becoming friends with someone as revered as Jeff Weissman.
A recommendation from a top family lawyer in New York led me to Jeffrey A. Weissman. I showed up at Jeff’s law office with a picture of my four teenage children, tears in my eyes and a desperate need to find someone to help me navigate through a divorce after 24 years of marriage. I had already met with two other lawyers whose main focus was on the monetary aspects of my case and I did not feel would represent me in the best way possible.
In contrast, Jeff sat with me for a couple of hours and calmly walked me through the divorce process from beginning to end, answering all of my questions and helping me to understand exactly what lie ahead. His passion, creativity and intelligence were apparent and second to none. After my “divorce tutorial,” I knew I had finally found the leader of my team.
After assembling a top notch group of professionals for my case, Jeff diligently worked on my behalf and always had my best interests at heart. Listening to my fears and concerns, Jeff was always sensitive to my needs, while still using his top notch skills to keep me focused and looking at the big picture. Although numerous events existed in my divorce that could have provoked anger and conflict, Jeff’s gift of reason throughout the process helped to keep my emotions positively focused. By following Jeff and his team I was led through a very successful and amicable mediation which resulted in a very fair and positive settlement.
Jeff and the staff of Gladstone & Weissman treated me as though I was their most important client, completed my divorce in a very timely matter and kept me informed of all correspondence pertinent to my case. Whenever I am asked who represented me in my divorce, whether it is another family lawyer, friend or other professional, I am very proud to say Jeffrey Weissman. Those who know him, even opposing attorneys, always have kind and positive things to say about him. The true test of a respected professional is the positive confirmation of his peers.
I know without a doubt, that without Jeff’s intelligence, compassion, innate ability to understand the psychology of people and superb skills in presenting my case to the opposing counsel, I would not have had as successful an outcome. Jeff was the silver lining in my divorce and I will forever be thankful.
I was very pleased with the way Jeff handled my divorce. He moved through issues quickly and reached practical resolution. He was willing to suggest and try innovative approaches to issues and sold them well to the other side. He is constantly cognizant of the relationships within his specialty and importance of keeping everyone whole. I think he has great credibility within the realm of family law practice which helps him get through difficult issues. He has put together a strong team and his firm is extremely responsive and doesn’t let time sensitive matters rest. I hold Jeff and his firm in the highest regard.
In the course of my 23 year career as an attorney in South Florida, I have had the privilege of coming across a select few attorneys who truly understand what it means to vigorously, and ethically represent their clients, while doing so with the utmost compassion. Jeff Weissman is one of those attorneys. Jeff’s understanding of Florida law, the family law court system, and the issues that can come up in family matters is unparalleled. He is truly a great advocate for his clients, and makes a difficult time in their lives much easier to bear. I highly recommend Jeff Weissman for all of your family law matters.
Jeffrey Weissman recently represented me during a painful divorce proceeding admirably. I chose your firm because of the strategic, professional approach I felt would be taken, in the end that is the exact approach that was taken. Jeff was skillful in staying out of any petty drama and always dealt from a position of strength and leverage while minimizing exposure. Moreover, Jeff became a trusted personal friend during and remains after the process ended.
Jeff Weissman is simply, hands down, the most practical, creative and passionate matrimonial attorney in South Florida. He fights for his clients like they are his family but takes a very pragmatic approach to every case. He would rather settle than litigate, and he knows how to work with his adversaries to get the job done for his clients.
From my first meeting with Jeff Weissman and Denise Schneider, and throughout my entire divorce, I was treated as one of their family. If you’re looking for attorneys with the highest level of integrity that really care about their clients, these guys are the “real deal”. Their knowledge and experience of the legal process combined with their carefully constructed strategic and tactical planning made my divorce easier than I could have ever imagined.
Whether it was early morning or evening hours, they were always there for me when I needed questions answered or just someone to speak with.
I was treated as a human being, with dignity and respect. I was not just another client getting divorced.
Divorce is painful. Jeff and Denise helped to ease my pain.
Gladstone and Weissman’s reputation as the prominent family law practice is well-earned. The entire staff is dedicated towards producing effective results during the most trying of times. It provided great comfort knowing there was a team of caring and incredibly competent professionals working on my behalf.
Jeff Weissman was the obvious star of the team. He helped me clarify my goals and stay on track. Even when the case got contentious, I never once doubted who had my back. Jeff steered me through a mine field of complex and emotional obstacles with an obvious command of the law, the benefit of his experience, and a genuine caring which showed true compassion and empathy. I could not have ended up where I did without him, and will never forget what he did for me.
I was in a state of shock after I found out that my marriage of 20 years was about to crumble. My good friend gave me the names of two divorce attorneys. One was a woman and the other a man. I decided to interview the woman first thinking that I would be more comfortable with a female.
Then I met Jeff Weissman. He proceeded to give me a mini course on divorce 101. I chose Jeff on the spot. I could see the passion he had for his work. There was no doubt that I was in good hands.
Jeff was sensitive to my every need and answered all my questions. He was thorough, meticulous, and left no stone unturned in all aspects of the law and my particular case. When issues arose that I could not handle, he became my guide and my strength. Jeff made sure to understand ME- the woman whom he knew I could become.
My story has a happy ending. My husband and I sought counseling and we reconciled our differences. The bonus for me is Jeff Weissman- a wonderful person, and a dear friend for life!
As a trusts and estates attorney, I have worked together with Jeff Weissman and my clients on numerous occasions. I am always impressed by Jeff’s compassion, intelligence, responsiveness and professionalism. Jeff’s knowledge and expertise in sophisticated family law matters is top notch. In addition, Jeff truly listens to his clients, making them feel supported and understood. He accurately assesses their needs and helps them to make decisions that are in their best interests, as well as the best interests of their children. Jeff is respected by his peers and judges, having a reputation for zealously representing his clients while maintaining an ethical practice. Each of my clients who has worked with Jeff has thanked me for the recommendation. It is my strong belief that any individual wanting excellent representation in the area of family law should contact Jeff Weissman.
I think that one of the most complimentary things you can say about an Attorney, is that after working with him for a couple of years, and having concluded that work, he became your friend.
Jeff Weissman was recommended to me by another Attorney friend of mine. This friend saw the terrible experience I had with a previous Divorce Attorney and wanted to help me. Even though I had a very difficult divorce case, my experience working with Jeff and his team was very positive. He’s extremely capable and honest. He always had the right attitude and was fair. The fees he charged me were always reasonable and I never had the feeling of being overcharged… which is a very common feeling when dealing with Attorneys…
I felt very protected working with “Gladstone & Weissman” and I would strongly recommend them in case you must divorce… but if there is any way you can reconcile with your wife or husband , try that first…
When faced with a divorce after 13 years of marriage, I walked into Jeff Weissman’s office unsure of what I needed to do and who I could trust to guide me through this difficult time. Jeff and his associates gave me an immediate sense of comfort by wanting to know about me and my situation rather than trying to ‘sell’ me on why I should hire their firm. They asked me a lot of thoughtful questions and listened intently to each and every answer I gave them in that initial meeting. As we worked together during the stages of the divorce process, all the way through the day of my final judgment ending my marriage, Jeff and his colleagues were empathetic, quick to respond to my questions and concerns, extremely knowledgeable on all matters, and efficient which saved me time and money. Knowing that Jeff and his team were constantly looking out for my best interests and not their bottom line gave me the security and the confidence I needed and make the whole experience more bearable. I feel extremely lucky to have been referred to the firm and I know I wouldn’t have wanted to go through this without Jeff & Chris. I highly recommend Gladstone & Weissman to anyone in need of a family lawyer.

I had the good fortune to become a client of Jeffrey Weissman many years ago. I was in a difficult time of my life an even though I had a lawyer for many years, during which it seemed that a dark cloud could not be lifted. I consider meeting him not just good fortune, but a blessing.
In our initial consultation, it struck me that while I interviewed Mr. Weissman, HE was interviewing ME. It was a very refreshing moment for me because I understood that he would take my case only if he believed in the case and the people involved. I realize that he needed to understand why, after so many years with another law firm, I was still in need for a lawyer.
This deep interest and need to understand who he had in front of him before taking the case showed me the integrity of Mr. Weissman. I was not just a pay check or just one more case. I was a person who needed help and he assumed responsibility to help me and my kids by solving the problems instead of dragging the matter on unnecessarily. The dark cloud would have just consumed me, making me unable to take care of myself or my kids.
I learned to lean on and trust Mr. Weissman completely and listen to his advice. He listed to and understood my frustrations. He is a man with great respect for values like family, empathy, courage, forgiveness. He’s extremely intelligent and caring. He can comprehend complex matters and develop innovative strategies taking in consideration his client’s background, culture, strengths and weaknesses. By really understanding me and where I was coming from, he determined the right path for a successful result. I will be honest and admit that once or twice I did not agree with his advice, but I trusted in his experience and instincts. Let me tell you, he was absolutely right and I was glad to have listened to him!
It’s nearly unheard of to feel you can trust your lawyer blindly. However, with Mr. Weissman I felt that I could and I did. I’m grateful to God that he crossed my path with Mr. Weissman. He will be my lawyer for life and I will ask him for suggestions because integrity, honor and respect are hard to find. Once you find them in a person you cherish them.
I had the pleasure of working with Jeffrey Weissman regarding a postnuptial agreement for one of my significant estate planning clients. Not only was I completely impressed with his knowledge of the law which I absolutely expected, but Jeff has a unique ability to convey the law and the work required to be done in a manner for a layperson to understand. When the client’s signing ceremony for the postnuptial agreement (which should have been a standard signing) took an unexpected turn, Jeff adeptly handled the meeting, preserved the series of events for the formal record and scheduled all parties to reconvene for a signing at a later date. Everything was strategically done in a manner which shows his experience and complete advocacy for his client in order to accomplish the desired result. My client was very pleased with the outcome and how Jeff made this difficult and emotional situation something that was painless. Jeff and his staff responded to every email with promptness and precision and he took as much time as was necessary to ensure my client was fully informed and understood all documentation prepared. I will absolutely refer any of my clients who need a family law attorney to Jeff and will feel comfortable that they will receive top notch legal representation. The honor of 2013 Family Law Attorney of the Year could not be awarded to a more deserving attorney!

I wanted to express how much I appreciate everything you and the rest of your team has done for me. Divorce is an emotionally charged event and, in my case, fairly complex. Throughout this entire process, you and your crew have been not only professional and thorough, but also a calming and compassionate influence that has helped me stay on course and focused on what is important. Thank you for all your help and support. I am extremely fortunate to have in my corner a team that has earned my absolute trust and gratitude.
As Chief Executive and Chairman of a large public company, I was accustomed to dealing with many different attorneys throughout my life. Jeffrey Weissman and his team at Gladstone & Weissman, P.A., however, were definitely among the best.
My former wife and I had been separated for 30 years before we decided to legally divorce. It was not an overly-emotional matter, and our biggest concern was avoiding all of the stress and time usually associated with divorce proceedings. Jeff Weissman and his team ensured that my divorce progressed smoothly and concluded as soon as possible–saving us time and money. The attorneys and staff were very professional and polite, and my ex-wife even commented on how gracious they were. Overall, I am very happy with the result of my case and highly recommend Mr. Weissman’s legal services.
