John Weiland was truly the most attentive, charismatic, on point, honest attorney I have ever come accross in all my years of screwing up. He makes you feel comfortable while telling you like it is, addressing all potential outcomes from the get go and anything you can do yourself to get ahead before your date.
I walked into the courtroom ready and prepared as I knew my attorney was as well and he definitely displayed such in front of the Judge. John Weiland’s representation is more than worth the money and I would strongly recommend him to anyone.
