Testimonials

I was looking for an Orlando Workers’ Comp attorney to represent me in a workers compensation case and Al Hilado was recommended by a family member. Mr. Hilado is very professional and knowledgeable in this area of law. Mr. Hilado explained everything to me and would not end a meeting until he felt I understood what was happening or had happened. I was very happy with the way he handled my case. He explained everything to me and did not try to push me in any direction as far as when I had to make decisions. Whenever I had a question, Al was a phone call away. He returned my calls and emails very quickly. His staff is extremely professional and friendly. I highly recommend Al Hilado to anyone who is injured at work and needs workers’ comp assistance.

Glen Wieland is the most honest and trustworthy attorney I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. He kept me completely informed throughout the whole process of my Workman’s Comp case. Responded immediately to any emails or questions I had. I’m very appreciative for his hard work and his knowledge. He and his staff are the very best you’ll find in Orlando!
