Words cannot express the professionalism you and your staff had given us in our time of need. I’m a retired law enforcement officer who was injured in the line of duty. I’m very pleased with the performance, support, professionalism and determination throughout my case. Everyone was quick to respond to my questions, available during times that most would consider after hours and always patient in explaining the details and developments of my case.

Mr. Wieland is an excellent attorney who is compassionate and ethical. He is respected by his clients and his peers. He is an attorney who actually returns his clients’ telephone calls, which if you have been associated with other attorneys, you know this is rare. He answers all my questions no matter how long it takes. He is truly concerned about his clients.
