5.0 out of 5 stars

Glen Wieland is hands down the person you want in your corner when faced with all the firey hoops and pitfalls of dealing with an injury. Never did we think we would have to retain an attorney when dealing with Worker's Compensation after my husband was injured. They left us no choice. Glen Wieland came highly recommend by a friend. Now we know why. Glen and his team were very professional, knowledgeable and compassionate throughout our process. He successfully advocated for us with integrity. We felt supported every step of the way. We continue to speak highly of Glen and his team. We absolutely recommend Wieland & DeLattre without whom we would have been so helpless and lost.
