John was willing to talk to me long enough to get to know my situation the first time we spoke. As an out of state client he let me know what I needed to do and what documents I needed to supply for him to best represent me. He explained all possible outcomes, promising no particular one, only that he would work his hardest to get the best outcome he could for me. He was able to get all charges dismissed as long as i passed a driving class and paid court costs.
I called many attorneys, most charging more, and some charging less, but John was the only one able to put me at ease and make me feel certain my case would get the attention it deserved.
I am so glad I was represented by John Weiland. He got me the best possible outcome for my case.
Featured Client Review
John Weiland got the best possible outcome for me (dismissed charges) when faced with a Reckless Driving charge that could have ended much worse. He was accessible and friendly from the start, and told me exactly what to do for the best chance of a dismissal - and I didn't even need to be at the hearing! I highly recommend Mr. Weiland for anyone needing a traffic attorney in the Richmond area.
