  • Alexandra H. Deal

    Attorney Wiesner is one of the most dedicated, thoughtful attorneys with whom I have had the pleasure of working. His willingness to dig into issues and to leave no stone unturned lead to exceptional results for his clients. I frequently recommend him for employment, civil rights, criminal defense, and business litigation matters, and will continue to do so without reservation.
