Practicing for over 30 years and board certified in workers’ compensation since 1990, Glen Wieland was destined to be a lawyer.

Glen completed his undergraduate studies at Presbyterian College in South Carolina before receiving his law degree from The Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama. He returned to Orlando in 1982 and began practicing law at Walker & Buckmaster, where he remained for five years. He then left to partner with another attorney for more than 10 years before forming Wieland, Hilado & DeLattre. As one of three attorneys, Wieland prefers the personal interaction between attorneys that can be found only in a firm of this size.

He has also been recognized by Orlando Magazine as one of Orlando’s Best Attorneys and was awarded an AV rating from attorney review service, Martindale-Hubbell; their highest rating. Glen is also proud to belong to the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, devoted only to trial lawyers who have achieved a settlement or verdict of a million dollars or more.
Outside of the firm, Glen has a strong passion for community service influenced by his mother, who was personally recognized by President George W. Bush for having spent more than 50 years in continuous volunteer work for the community. Glen is a former Chairman and Trustee for the Orlando Area Trust for the Homeless, Chancellor of Anglican Diocese of the East and Anglican Province of America.

Upon settlement of my case, I felt it was a fair settlement amount and that Mr. Hilado did everything in his power to ensure this process had truly been smooth and as comfortable as possible. Every step along the way, which was a true long journey, I was kept informed of the progress, I could not have asked for more!
