Evaluated for Professionalism and Tested for Expertise.
Al is very professional and good at what he does. He knows his business to the max and I was very satisfied with his service I would recommend him every time.
On September 29, 2015, a serious auto crash changed our lives forever. Injuries sustained by my husband and I resulted in a long hospital stay and several subsequent surgeries. Two years later, we are both still dealing with injury related issues. Within a few days of the crash, we asked a relative about getting an attorney and they recommended Tom DeLattre (Wieland Hilado & DeLattre). Tom returned my husband’s call that same day and arranged to meet with us at the hospital. He explained the process and assured us that he would handle the auto insurance companies. He explained that our job was to work on our recovery. He was always available for questions and would return calls on weekends and while on vacation. We are very happy with the fair settlement that Tom DeLattre worked out with the insurance companies. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends or other family members.
