Mr. Weissberg has been actively engaged in the practice of law since 1996.  After graduating with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Mr. Weissberg earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Florida in 1996.

In 1998, Mr. Weissberg established the law firm of Silverman & Weissberg, a Partnership of Professional Associations as a founding member.  In 2000, Mr. Weissberg then affiliated with Wermuthlaw, P.A.,  where he directed that firm’s family and civil litigation practice until re-establishing his own firm in November 2002.  In the years since, Mr. Weissberg has concentrated his efforts on the development of the firm’s family law practice.  At the same time, Mr. Weissberg continues to offer assistance to clients in a variety of other areas.

Since the firm’s inception, Mr. Weissberg has successfully represented clients in a multitude of civil and family practice matters in both original and post-judgment proceedings.  Mr. Weissberg’s representation of clients in family matters has included actions for dissolution of marriage, paternity, modification and enforcement actions dealing with specific issues of child support, timesharing and visitation, parental responsibility and parenting plan issues, relocation, alimony and spousal support, property division, and the equitable division of assets and liabilities.

Mr. Weissberg also has particular experience in advocating for children with developmental disabilities and assisting them and their families in disputes with local school systems.

In addition to advocating for his own clients, Mr. Weissberg also continues to serve as family mediator and to assist the Court by serving as a guardian ad litem in contested family law matters

Mediation, as used in law, is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), a way of resolving disputes between two or more parties with concrete effects. Typically, a third party, the mediator, assists the parties to negotiate a settlement. Disputants may mediate disputes in a variety of domains, such as commercial, legal, diplomatic, workplace, community and family matters.

The term "mediation" broadly refers to any instance in which a third party helps others reach agreement. More specifically, mediation has a structure, timetable and dynamics that "ordinary" negotiation lacks. The process is private and confidential, possibly enforced by law. Participation is typically voluntary. The mediator acts as a neutral third party and facilitates rather than directs the process.

Mediators use various techniques to open, or improve, dialogue and empathy between disputants, aiming to help the parties reach an agreement. Much depends on the mediator's skill and training. As the practice gained popularity, training programs, certifications and licensing followed, producing trained, professional mediators committed to the discipline.
