I've had the pleasure to work with Al Hilado. He helped me get two needed surgeries and other benefits on a worker’s compensation case. He is a seasoned attorney who answered all my questions timely. My case was lengthy so I got to know Al. He is a caring person who takes his clients interests to heart. Al mediated my settlement for over 175,000.00 dollars. I can’t thank him and his staff enough.

After my claim for Social Security Disability was denied, I consulted Al Hilado. Al suggested that I handle the paper appeal myself and if I was denied again to come back and see him. His rational for this was that if my claim was awarded on appeal, that I would save the attorney fees. That's Integrity!
The claim was denied again and Al represented me in front of the
Judge. A judge that is notorious for being difficult to work with and having one of the highest denial rates in central Florida. The time for my hearing came and went and Al sat right there with me waiting for hours. At last our turn came. However, the judge spent most of the time talking and asking questions which left little time for Al to present my case facts. To make a long story short, the hearing was continued on another date months down the road. The judge was hostile from the beginning. I was in tears; but, Al presented the facts of my case in a calm and professional manner despite being treated rudely by the judge. Al ultimately won the case and I was awarded Social Security Disability. That's Skill!
I never felt like a client of Al's. I immediately felt like a friend. I felt confident in my choice of attorneys. Al showed concern not only about the case; but, about my health and medical issues. He showed genuine concern about my family. That's Compassion.
As soon as Al took my case, I felt a huge burden lift from me because I knew he would handle my case with the same attention he would a family member. He kept me informed thru the entire process. He explained things thoroughly. He is just a genuinely friendly down to earth family man. I actually looked forward to his calls and our meetings.
Al's assistant, Melody, is just as nice. She's informed and highly skilled. All calls and emails were answered promptly.
You can not make a better choice than Al Hilado. I feel like I have a friend for life.

I experienced some significant injuries while on the job in 2007. I was treated pretty horribly by my employer & was made to feel like I had intentionally done harm to myself in order to cost them financially. Obviously, I did NOT break bones & put myself through pain on purpose. Al Hilado became my lifeline in a very big way. Because of the nature of my injuries and the residual effects, I had no interest in settling my case early on (or even for the next decade). Al & Melody (his awe-inspiring secretary) saw me through every minute of the endless hassle I was thrown. They legitimately took care of me. I have been a client for 10 years (by choice) & for 10 years, I've always felt secure amidst the intentional confusion served by my (then) employer. Al & Melody are much more than my representation... They have become my friends. I have nothing but good things to say about my decision to hire Weiland, Hilado & DeLattre. They considered the future of my family, they helped me to take care of my family & they ultimately became my family. Thank you, Al & Mel! I can't thank you enough for your commitment to me, my family & my case. You're the best!

I hired Al Hilado in 2006 after suffering a back injury at work. Al helped me through the entire painstacking 11 year process until we finally settled my case. His knowledge and experience is first notch. He helped me with every step of the process. He kept me informed of what the legal process was and what my rights were. He made sure I got the best treatment possible and wasn't afraid fobget the courts involved to see that it happened. He also gave me advice about researching different medical treatments and doctors and made sure I never did anything I wasn't comfortable doing. I had several issues with doctors within the workers comp treatment process and he stood by me and made sure I always got the treatment and outcome that wanted. I never felt like I had to compromise to make things easier. He always looked out for my best interest medically and legally throughout the 11 years it took to close my case. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone I know that needs assistance in his field of practice. He is nothing like the typical ambulance chasing injury attorneys out there looking to close a quick case and take a third of your money. His reputation in his field is way more valuable to him than money. He takes pride in his work and his ethics as an attorney and treats every client as if they were his only client and only wants what is best for them. His reputation speaks for itself and you won't find a better lawyer to make sure you are taken care when legal assistance is necessary.

We went to visit Mr Hilado for a consultation, right from the start he welcomed us and answered all of our questions without judgement. We hired Mr Hilado without any intentions of monetary gains. We hired him strictly to help us get workers comp to follow through with our requests in a timely manner. Mr Hilado went above and beyond to get us results that were way above any expectations and faster than imaginable. He has been a man that has stood behind his word from square one and helped us when we didn't see an end in sight. Very honest, reliable, family oriented and truthfully a great attorney. We couldn't be happier with our end results. Given the chance to do it again, we'd 100% go with Mr Hilado.

Mr. Hilado was my attorney in a work comp case. From the very start, he was a very sincere attorney that cared about me as an individual and for the welfare of my family. Not only did he fight for me, he saved my life. Not just Al but his whole staff took the time for me and talked me through every step. I highly recommend Al Hilado and his office for any legal needs.

I went in just for a consultation regarding a situation. He was very informative and professional. Great attitude and friendly personality, which made for a great meeting. Would recommend him for anyone looking for a good lawyer , who treats you like a friend and not just another person!
