A. Paul Weissenstein Jr.

The origin of Weissenstein Law Firm, LLC can be traced back to law school when Paul Weissenstein enjoyed courses on estate planning and estate administration. His first job after law school was as an assistant trust officer at S.C. National Bank in Myrtle Beach where he assisted other attorneys in drafting complex Will and Trust Agreements and administering large estates and trusts.

Mr. Weissenstein left the bank to join Ackerman Law Firm in Walterboro, South Carolina, a general practice firm with an emphasis on debt collection. In a seventeen month period, Mr. Weissenstein made court appearances in 44 of the 46 counties of South Carolina and tried numerous cases before a jury and appeared in about two hundred other judicial proceedings, including roster meetings, motions hearings and non jury trials. He later had an opportunity to join the general practice firm of Bogoslow and Jones, in Walterboro as an associate in 1981. He was able to assist that firm with estate planning and administration, commercial and residential real estate closings, and personal injury, real estate and other litigation. The firm represented the Federal Land Bank and Production Credit Association, bringing mortgage foreclosure actions and representing those lenders in bankruptcy court. In 1987, Mr. Weissenstein moved to Sumter joining the Weinberg Law Firm until the end of 1997, when he left to open his own firm.
