Weinberg began his career as a U.S. Treasury Bond Trader at the Chicago Board of Trade in 1989. In 1991, he was appointed as Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in Macomb County, Michigan’s third largest county.[1] While in that position (1991–1994), Weinberg prosecuted more than 75 capital felony trials and became Chief of the Criminal Sexual Conduct Unit.[citation needed] In that post, Weinberg prosecuted People of the State of Michigan v. John Wisniewski, the 1993 conviction of a man involved in the Big Brother Big Sister program who molested his little brother and was convicted with a 10-year prison sentence. Weinberg was the lead prosecutor on more than 100 trials, including People vs. Donald Debolt, a case covered extensively on Court TV. In that 1994 case, a Sterling Heights psychologist was accused of having sex with a patient being treated for mental illness. After the case ended, Weinberg joined the law firm of Bufalino and Palazzolo, P.C., in Clinton Township, Michigan, where he practiced from 1994 to 1997.

In 1997, Weinberg formed Michigan Criminal Lawyers Association P.C., and served as its managing partner representing many notable cases throughout the State of Michigan[2] [3] [4] [5] .

In 2000, Weinberg was the defense attorney for the only adultery case in the history of the state of Michigan. The case attracted national attention, involving a defendant accused of criminal sexual conduct for molesting his sister-in-law..
