Andrew Weissmann, an American attorney & FBI’s former General Counsel, may not shy out from uncovering the truth of investigations but the scenario reverses if it comes to his relationship. Many wonder if Weissmann has a wife.

Well, yes, the highly esteemed law professor at NYU is a married man. So, who’s his wife? And what’s the deal with his gay rumors? Let’s get a breakdown.

Key Takeaways

  • Andrew Weissman is married to Debra Weissmann.
  • The attorney’s wife Debra is often mistaken with Deborah M. Weissmann, a law professor at the UNC School of Law.
  • Wiessmann’s son is not Benjamin, instead, he is his nephew (from sister Lisa Weissmann).
  •  Mr. Weissmann was rumored to be gay.

: Who Is She?

Weissmann is married to Debra Weissman, but the attorney cum professor likes to keep the disclosure of his personal life at bay. Neither the professional venture of his spouse nor their married life is on the outlet. Some sources cite that she has a strong orientation toward family and supports her husband’s life.

While he has not made reference to his marriage in public, Debra has also maintained a low profile. The only mention of his wife came in an obituary of Andrew’s father Dr. Gerald Weissman who died on July 10, 2019.

What’s The Possible Reason For Debra Remaining Low-Key?

Even if there are no official claims regarding it, sources allege that Debra lives under the radar for safety reasons. Given the fact that Andrew prosecutes high-profile organized crime cases, it is possible that the low-profile strategy is a great aid to it.

Professor Deborah M. Weissmann Is Mistaken As

People often mistake Deborah M. Weissmann, a law professor, as the wife of attorney Andrew. Despite having the same surname “Weissmann”, they are not related- let alone be husband & wife.

Born in July 1951, Deborah, the Chapel Hill, North Carolina resident is the Reef C. Ivey II Distinguished Professor of Law at UNC School of Law. The 72-year-old has been a member of the University of North Carolina Law faculty since 1998.

With a research interest in immigration, human rights & gender violence, she established herself as a formidable force in legal education. The Syracuse University alum even got recognition with the ACLU’s Frank Porter Graham Award for Outstanding Civil Rights Work in 2013.

Divorce Rumors Of Andrew And Debra Weissmann

On online tabloids, there are claims that Mr. Weissmann and Debra are divorced. On top of that, it is alleged that the former Chief of the Fraud Section in the Department of Justice is now married to a woman named Sharon Armon. However, neither of those claims ever became official.

Do The Weissmann Duo Share A Child?

There are no specifications if Andrew and his wife Debra share any child. Although there are mentions that the couple shares a son named Benjamin “Ben” Weissmann (born in August 1992), in reality, he is the son of the attorney’s sister Lisa Weissmann, a hematology and oncology specialist.

While the NYU Law School professor lives in New York City, his sister Lisa and nephew Ben reside in Massachusetts.

Gay Rumors Of Andrew Weissmann

Being a well-known attorney won’t make Andrew rumor-proof. He was rumored to be gay since he remained tight-lipped about his personal life, especially his relationship. Those hoaxes got down after the topic of his marriage and his wife Debra came to light.

The most widespread rumor about his alleged homosexuality certainly gained traction through the spread of other false statements. Though over those years, Weissmann never cared or addressed gay rumors- probably, he believed in the truth to answer at the right time rather than stirring the baseless claims.
