From page A1 | February 19, 2014 | 4 Comments

Joseph Weinberger of El Dorado Hills announced his candidacy for one of the two available seats on the El Dorado Superior Court bench.

Weinberger has been an advocate for people’s rights for more than 25 years. He graduated from Colby College in Waterville, Maine, with a BA in Political Science and then moved to California to attend law school, graduating from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in 1988.

While at McGeorge, Weiberger was active in student government and with the McGeorge Rugby Club. As a law student, Weinberger worked for Hartley Hansen of Hansen, Boyd, Culhane & Mounier and for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

After law school, Weinberger joined the law firm of Fonda & Garrard in Los Angeles. He represented numerous hospitals, companies and insurance companies in litigation. After several years in Los Angeles, Weinberger elected to return to the Sacramento area to rejoin the firm of Hanson, Boyd, Culhane & Watson where he represented businesses, partnerships, farmers and individuals in various types of litigation matters.

In 1993, Weinberger opened his own firm and began representing individuals and businesses in a variety of areas. Weinberger has become a seasoned litigator, having successfully tried numerous cases before jury and bench trials. He has also appeared and successfully argued before the Third District Court of Appeals.

Weinberger is an active member of the Capital City Trial Lawyers Board of Directors. He is a member of the American Association for Justice, Consumer Attorneys of California, Sacramento County Bar Association, State Bar of California, and the U.S. District Courts, among others. He has also served as a Judge Pro Tem for Sacramento County Superior Court, El Dorado County Superior Court and Placer County Superior Court.

Weinberger’s recent accomplishments also include a case involving the protection of parental rights and the successful reunification of parents and their child. Weinberger was featured on the Today Show, Good Morning America, Glen Beck and the View for his representation in this case.

Weinberger and his wife Robin moved to El Dorado County more than 16 years ago to raise their two daughters in this area. They have been active volunteers in the community, local theaters and the public schools and have also quietly volunteered time with a number of nonprofit organizations.

    Have a meet and greet with other candidates. Debate issues. This year people want to hear from everyone in person--not just the small groups of people who feel they know better than the rest. :) Good luck. I have met some really nice people running this year...however I havent heard what they believe. I have heard their back ground. I want to hear their "voice."

    Mr. Weinberger did a very nice job presenting his case tonight along side some of the other candidates for judges positions. I loved hearing them all speak...and hope to hear more from them as they meet and greet up the hill.

    It would be my absolute pleasure to meet and speak with anyone at anytime. I am an open book and will gladly discuss any issue subject to the ethical limitations placed on judicial candidates. We will be holding a fundraiser the end of March in El Dorado Hills. We will also be having a number of meet and greet oppotunities throughout the County. Check out our facebook page and our Website www.weinberger4judge.com. You can also call the campaign at (530) 206-3990 and I or a staff member will get in touch with you directly.

    Mr. Weinberger: Thank you for making an appearance on this forum. It is a real treat. One concern of mine is judicial integrity, much more than political leanings per se. A 2006 LA Times series ("In Las Vegas, They're Playing With a Stacked Judicial Deck" - HERE) states: "Some judges routinely rule in cases involving friends, former clients and business associates -- and in favor of lawyers who fill their campaign coffers." (I doubt this is true ONLY in Las Vegas.) Office seeking is expensive; many contributors "expect something in return". Could you give a judicial "NO" to friends & benefactors?
