I was very fortunate to have Mr. Charles Weiner, ESQ handle my case this year. Approximately eight years ago, I applied for accommodations on the USMLE Step 1 and USMLE Step CK, and was denied numerous times despite having appropriate documentation from specialists and professors. I presented my case to Charles Weiner, ESQ. He was very knowledgeable about the laws surrounding Disability Law and the expectations from the NBME. He listened to and answered all my concerns. When it became time to apply for accommodations, Mr. Weiner submitted an 11 page letter attached with my documents. Within 30 day I received a letter from the NBME, that I would be granted accommodations. I can honestly say that without Charles Weiner’s, ESQ aid this would not be possible. He is a true and invaluable expert attorney! If you are his client… you simply have the best of the best!
We hired Chuck for high stakes exams accommodations (MCAT and Medical Boards)for our child. Chuck was thorough, reviewed documentation and provided us with excellent advice,. He advocated on our child's behalf and as a result, our child received the accommodations that had been previously denied. We are certain that the successful outcome was the direct result of Chuck's expert help. We are so appreciative! He is knowledgeable, professional, and client focused. My husband and I highly recommend Charles Weiner.
Before contacting Charles Weiner, I had spent several months submitting requests and subsequent appeals (with the full support and assistance of my medical school staff) to the National Board of Medical Examiners in order to get appropriate testing accommodations for USMLE Step 2. After my appeals and supporting letters from highly qualified professional were deemed unsatisfactory by the organization, I contacted Charles Weiner for advice. He was very knowledgeable and quickly reviewed my case to devise a strategy for getting the desired outcome. Although it took a few weeks to compile the necessary supporting documentation, Charles Weiner was able to write a 7 page letter (citing various cases) to the organization and submit the supporting documentation directly contact the NBME's house counsel. He was able to accomplish the desired outcome in less than 1 week despite the fact that my numerous appeals were denied by the NBME over the previous year. He prevailed against the NBME and surprised many of the administrators at my medical school who had become used to seeing many of their students lose their appeals for testing accommodation over the previous decade. In hindsight, my only regret is that I did not contact Charles Weiner as soon as I started the process. It would have saved me lots of wasted time. It is important to get his help as soon as you begin the process of requesting for testing accommodation because you will need someone that is looking out for your interests.
Chuck Weiner is an excellent attorney! I hired Chuck to handle a disability dispute with a testing agency. Despite several letters to the agency written by Chuck, we had to go to federal court to resolve the issue. During the process, Chuck was extremely professional and prepared me very well. For instance, prior to the deposition, Chuck explained what types of questions they would ask, and that I should only answer the questions that are asked. At the hearing, he was comfortable and confident, and knew exactly what he was doing. Ultimately, thanks to Chuck, we succeeded, and I received appropriate accommodations for my examination.
Attorney Weiner was tenacious and responsive in addressing the matter on behalf of our child. He explained the process and addressed our concerns. Our calls were returned promptly. The result has made a difference in our lives.
I came to an agreement w/ the other side w/ Charles Winer. I had questions, I didn't understand things. He was very good in the inital meeting. However as time went on and once an agreement was reached he could be bothered. It seemed like he knew what $ he was getting and his job was done. Any additional questions I had or clarification - he could be bothered
