Outstanding Attorney, Highly Recommended
Attorney Wiesner has represented me on an unusual and challenging zoning case, and done an exceptional job. He brings an extraordinary attention to detail, a dedication to understanding not just the case law but the broader context of the case, real collaboration with his client, and what I can can only describe as tenacity. I would highly recommend him to potential clients!

Exceptional Representation
Attorney Jeffrey Wiesner represented our son in a criminal appeals case. Through the appeals process he was able to get an eighteen month mandatory sentence overturned. He exposed crucial evidence that prior attorneys failed to present at trial. His knowledge of case law was exceptional. His dedication and attention to every detail of our son's case was outstanding. We would highly recommend Attorney Wiesner in any facet of law.
