About Michael S. Weinstock
Former New York City Prosecutor
Michael Weinstock was an Assistant District Attorney in Brooklyn. He worked in the special victim’s bureau, where he protected thousands of women and men who were the victims of sex crimes and domestic violence. He now operates the Law Offices of Michael Weinstock LLC, in Great Neck.
Michael was a volunteer firefighter and EMT for more than twelve years. He responded to the World Trade Center on the morning of 9/11 and was nearly killed, when the first tower collapsed. He was recognized for heroism by President George W. Bush and Senator Hillary Clinton.
In 2018, Michael used the skills he developed as a prosecutor to reunite Assemblyman Tony D’Urso with the Jewish family that his parents hid from the Nazis when he was a boy living in Italy. The reunion was held in Naples, Italy and it received significant media attention in the United States, Italy and Israel.
Michael is a proud graduate of St. Johns School of Law. He credits the scholarship he received from the Great Neck Student Aid Fund with allowing him the opportunity to attend college. He is a contributing author to the book “Dollars and Democracy: A Blueprint for Campaign Finance Reform” which was published by Fordham University Press.
He is a proud coach of the HAFTR high school mock trial team and a longtime volunteer with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Long Island.
