Weinstein served in the U.S. Navy right out of high school, earning his undergraduate degree at the University of Rochester before going to law school at Syracuse University School of Law. After a year of experience at a Rochester firm, Weinstein partnered with Leonard Maas in 1953 and opened the law practice that evolved through several name changes to Weinstein & Randisi LLP at Linden Oaks.
Throughout his career, Weinstein handled all kinds of cases but he ultimately focused on wills, trusts and estate planning.
“VLSP staff and clients appreciate Mr. Weinstein’s vast knowledge of these subject areas, along with his exceptionally pleasant demeanor,” noted Ann Williams, VLSP attorney in charge of Health Law, which includes wills, standby guardianships, and other end-of-life-matters.
Talking about the large under-privileged population in the area, Weinstein explained: “Most inner city residents don’t have wills. The last parent dies and the adult children are interested in saving the home.”
The problem is, the home’s value may be diminished by declining property values in the neighborhood. Between unpaid mortgage and property taxes, it may not be worth saving the property.
With years of experience, Weinstein knows how to advise clients for the best result.
