Attorney Recommended

I highly recommend Ms. Karen Weintraub. She goes above and beyond, is professional, detail oriented, excellent in hearings and the very best attorney. She and her exceptional staff handled my custody, modification and fee hearings. I have had many attorneys but none have ever accomplished what Ms. Weintraub has.


Peer Review

These are honest and reputable family lawyers who you can trust to bill honestly and fight hard for you.


Last Minute Pre-Nup

I hired Karen Weintraub as my attorney when I had to negotiate a last minute pre-nup. It was a very stressful emotional situation and she was amazing from start to finish. She helped me to take the emotions out of it and go at it as a business proposition that worked in my favor. She worked diligently in a short amount of time and was able to get the agreement completed and executed with time to spare. I will definitely use her in the future and recommend her services.


Hire KarenHire Karen

Karen Weintraub has been my attorney since the beginning of my divorce approximately 13 years ago. My ex-wife has been through 3 attorneys over the years and I still use Karen when needed. I consider her to be a friend now.
Karen can be as amicable or as aggressive as you want her to be and need her to be. I have not lost an issue with her representing me.
Most importantly, she is not your stereotypical attorney that drags out the case to pad the bill. She truely tries to get the case resolved as quickly as possible
I recommend her to anyone I know going through this difficult process


When Only The Best Will Do

Karen and her team have represented me with post-divorce issues for almost 6 years now. With all the struggles I have had to go through, her team was professional, responsive, and eager to help in the most efficient way possible. I recommended other people to her too and they were very happy with her services as well. No representation comes without a cost. But at least you want to feel like your money is well spent. That is the case with Karen and her team. They get the job done, and at least in my case, have “won” for me every time. I sometimes refer to them as my “Iron Dome”…Protecting me from the volley of BS I get from my ex. If you want to go with the best, you go here…Plain and simple!



I love Karen Weintraub. She was a pleasure to work with and made a very painful process as painless as possible. She kept me very well informed at all times during the process and was very easy to access and communicate with. She had my best interest always as her priority and resolved any and all issues very well. I’m very happy and grateful for how everything worked out in the end. And I especially need to mention that the attorney on the other side made this case very difficult the entire time, but Karen knew exactly how to handle that. She was amazing and I highly recommend her to everyone!


Excellent Lawyer & Adviser

Karen provided carefully considered and effective legal representation, as well as thoughtful and sincere advice. She helped me focus on the best course of action for my children and for myself, on legal matters and family issues. Karen was available when needed.


Lawyer Recommended

Karen was excellent, always quick responses, she is truly the best! Could not have done it without her.


Highly recommend

I had been working with an attorney before working with Mrs. Weintraub, that had been unsuccesful after a year worth of back and forth trying to come up with a fair resolution but did nothing but rack up astronomical charges with NO results. When I decided to hire Karen she came in, and got the job done!
She was always available for any question big or small. She is very professional but most of all KIND- She really cared about me and my family, working hard to assure that we were taken care of in the end.
I would HIGHLY recommend her, as I have to many friends who have also had the same experience. I also much mention that her office staff is great also!
I feel blessed to have had her on my team.


Hire Karen and you will not be disappointed

After hiring 5 other incompetent attorneys and wasting a lot of money I hired Karen Weintraub. I was impressed with her professionalism and knowledge. She and her staff are always available to take care of the toughest cases. They are considerate and caring. I am very pleased with the outcome of my custody/ parental alienation case. Karen does what others can’t.


My excellent experience

My experience with Karen and her staff at Sidweber & Weintraub PA was as I imagined my council would represent me. Always drawing conclusive and accurate scenarios that allowed me to make decisions for the future of my family and myself. The emotional and human factor was always considered and carefully addressed by all at the office; it was a difficult time for me and they had my back every step of the way. I researched many lawyers and after considering what was at stake I decide for Karen and her staff, (they were worth every penny).


Family Law Attorney

Karen Weintraub represented me in divorce proceedings. She is an incredibly intelligent and competent attorney who puts forth maximum effort for her clients. She keeps aware of current law and always goes into court or mediation prepared. She cares about her clients and their real needs.


Always available!

I hired Karen in 2015. From the very beginning she always made herself available and quickly answered emails and phone calls.

Throughout my entire divorce process she was helpful and gave great insight. Never once did I feel pushed aside or less important.

Her office staff is just as helpful and quick to respond. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone out there looking for an attorney that will help you through the entire divorce and fight for your rights.


Insightful, Sharp and Listens

Although Karen is petite in stature (and don’t let this fool you), she’s really a giant within, she is fearless in challenges, calm, knowledgeable and sharp in her delivery. This was my first divorce rodeo and I appreciated Karen’s patience in explaining the process and what I could expect using clear facts. Was very re-assuring and I never felt I was being ‘strung-along.’ With my case, there were certain international challenges. Karen understood the complexity, strategized and conquered. I felt absolute and total confidence with her and have referred others to her. Her staff are amazing, organized and detailed. A truly magnificent individual and an attorney that LISTENS and executes.


An Outstanding Family Law attorney

I highly recommend Karen Weintraub and the Sidweber & Weintraub law firm. Karen is a dedicated attorney that consistently goes above and beyond even in the most demanding situations. My post judgment matters involved high conflict custodial issues that were unique and complicated. Karen’s knowledge, efforts, and handling of the issues were very impressive. A key distinction from other family law attorneys is that Karen has a personal interest and care for my family and me. Also an invaluable advantage is that Karen has a very good reputation and is well respected among professionals and others in the legal profession. This was most helpful when working with 3rd parties involved in my case. Karen is also backed up by an incredible team of office personnel. They are organized, friendly, prepared, and always a pleasure to speak with. I cannot offer enough thanks and appreciation to Karen and her amazing team for all they have done for me.


Best family attorney

Karen came highly recommended by a friend of mine who had an exceptional experience working with her, so I hired her as my divorce attorney.
I did not know here to go or what to do. With her incredible knowledge and professionalism, she simplified the whole process for me making it more manageable. She helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life as she was not only supportive, but incredibly compassionate and empathetic.
I cannot imagine putting my life and future in another attorney’s hands. I will highly recommend her for all divorce and family law related matters.


Knowledgeable and Professional Attorney

Karen Weintraub came highly recommended and I hired her as my divorce attorney. She definitely lived up to her reputation, as she did an outstanding job. She helped me through such a stressful time as she was not only so knowledgeable and professional, but easy to talk to and very supportive. We always had open communication and everything was done in a very timely manner. I highly recommend Karen for a divorce lawyer.


Best Family Lawyer!

Ms. Weintraub is by far the best family lawyer I have had. Not only does she know the law but is able to navigate it extremely well. She is exceptionally smart and straight forward. Don’t let her size fool you she is a pit bull in the court room. She not only won my case (successfully found my ex husband in contempt of court) but I was awarded 100% of the lawyer fees we requested. My only regret is that I wish I found her earlier.


Top Attorney Family Law

Karen Weintraub is an exceptionally professional and very effective Attorney. I had to release the first attorney I had selected who I fell irrationally ran up my bills in the tens of thousands. He was methodically slow and seemed well choreographed with my ex-wife’s attorney in creating continual delays and a lot of extra hours. I believe he intentionally made an initial unfair offer to my ex-wife and attorney that kicked of a volley of unnecessary offers and counter offers that “surprisingly” took up a lot of billable hours?? After releasing him I did a lot more homework to find Karen and she was expensive and worth every dime. She saved me a lot of money due to her very high competence and bringing in the right extra resources that brought everything to a prompt close. My best counsel in a divorce is to spend the time to find the best attorney you can find. You will know right away if they are working towards your goals or their goals.


You don’t want to face, but definitely want on your side

Ms. Weintraub is a tremendously talented family law attorney. She always gave me practical legal advice; which saved me a lot of money. Ms. Weintraub and her staff were very responsive to me with all of my matters; regardless of how insignificant or urgent they were. I would definitely have her represent me with any legal matters that I may encounter in the future; as she has already represented me in 2 different cases ( divorce & relocation). I could not be any happier with the outcome of both of my cases.

You definitely want to have her on your side of the court room. I highly recommend Ms. Weintraub. She did an excellent job for me and I am sure she would do an excellent job for you.


Hard working and ethical

I hired Ms. Weintraub to represent me in a child custody modification case. Ms. Weintraub exceeded my expectations in every way. She was on top of the law, and very aggressive in court. At the same time, she was extremely ethical and considerate of my feelings during the case. Ms. Weintraub always kept me informed of everything going on In my case. She answered my phone calls and emails in a timely manner. Ms.. Weintraub is highly respected in the community and I am grateful she was able to help me.


Excellent attorney

Karen is a straightforward and intelligent family law attorney that cares about my family. I am impressed with her knowledge and ability to help me understand the court process I find myself overwhelmed by. She has always been communicative, timely and accomodating. I appreciate the fact that she informs me as to what my best financial option is, ie., whether to continue or settle my divorce case. I feel she does this without concern for her fees. Karen is open to friendly settlement; however, she is firm with my husband’s attorney when it’s necessary. My divorce has several unique issues and she has always guided me in the right direction during this difficult time. Her service is excellent and her team is also very good, as well. I highly recommend Karen without hesitation.


Family, Child Custody, & Child Support cases

Mrs. Weintraub has represented me and my children since July 2008 until present day in Dade and Broward counties in two different cases.
She is an outstanding person and an Exceptional Lawyer. I am grateful I found her and her council has helped me beyond words that I could ever possibly find to describe her. Every occasion Mrs. Weintraub has represented me with my best interest at heart, paying attention to every single detail without prejudice. She is one the most ethical persons I’ve ever crossed paths with. I could go on for a few pages and into detail about my experience with Mrs Weintraub. However in the interest of being brief to the point I will sum it up in the following:
I trust Karen blindly; I will follow her guidance and council on any matter without question!
