I was born in Orlando and am a second generation attorney.  I graduated from Presbyterian College in 1979 and went on to attend to obtain my law degree from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University. I became Board Certified in Workers' Compensation in 1990 and have remained Board Certified since that time. Tom DeLattre became my law partner in 2007. The firm is now known as Wieland & DeLattre, P.A. I have twice served as President of the Florida Workers' Advocates and is still a member of the Board of Directors of that organization. I served as Chairman of the Workers' Compensation Section of the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers (now known as the Florida Justice Association) and was asked to serve as an advisory to the Florida Division of Workers' Compensation on several occasions. I have served as Chair of the Executive Council of the Workers' Compensation Section of the Florida Bar from 2019-2020 and remains a member of the Executive Council. I am a Fellow in the College of Workers' Compensation Lawyers. I am a past member of the statewide Workers' Compensation Fraud Task Force. My father, Bill Wieland, served as a Judge of Compensation Claims for over 23 years. I have served his community as past Chair of the Orlando Area for the Homeless. I am very active in my church serving as the attorney for St. Alban's Cathedral, The Diocese of the Eastern United States of the Anglican Province of America and for the Anglican Province of America. I am a frequent lecturer on workers' compensation issues and serve as a faculty member for the Trial Advocacy Seminar for the Florida Bar Association Workers' Compensation Section. I am also a member of the Workers Injury Law and Advocacy Group (WILG), which is a national organization of workers' compensation attorneys. I have been married to Kennie Wieland for 40 years and we have two sons who are both attorneys handling workers’ compensation and personal injury cases.

Excellent team
Wieland & DeLattre have represented me in my workers comp case since 1999. They are top notch in their fields pertaining to my court cases.They have answered all of my questions through the years with expediency and in layman's terms, so I can truly understand the process and legality of my cases. Wieland & DeLattre & staff are to be commanded for their professionalism, straight forwardness, & no nonsense approach to the legal world. I would highly recommend them for your injury/workers comp cases, best in Orlando Fla, a top tier legal representative that truly works for the best outcome in your case.

Excellent! Head & shoulders above the rest. Best in Orlando.
Glen Wieland is hands down the person you want in your corner when faced with all the challenges of dealing with a Worker's Comp case. Never did we think we would have to retain an attorney when dealing with Worker's Compensation after my husband was injured. They left us no choice. Glen Wieland came highly recommend by a friend. Now we know why. Glen and his team were very professional, knowledgeable and compassionate throughout our process. He fiercely and successfully advocated for us with integrity. We felt heard, supported and expertly guided every step of the way. Through every twist and turn, Glen always answered our questions, made sure we understood our options and choices without all the legalese. We continue to speak highly of Glen and his team. We absolutely recommend Wieland & DeLattre without whom we would have been so helpless and lost.

Traffic accident & Workers Comp
Glen was a word of mouth referral. As I did my research with the people who referred him. Words like Honestly, Hard working and thorough was a common theme. I knew my worker comp case was extremely difficult to understand. There was more than one injury involved. As if that wasn’t complicated enough, the day I lost my job I was involved in a traffic accident. The accident was a head on collision. It totaled me truck and resulted in a traumatic head injury. Glen and his team assured me they could handle both cases. I felt like I was getting the best service available. Glen knew that the accident changed my ability to remember facts involved in my worker comp injury information. They showed a genuine concern for my well-being. Glen’s advice an guidance removed a lot of the stress one deals with in situations such as this. If things were not stressful & confusing I was diagnosed with cancer during this time. One of the things that impressed me was how willing Glen was to slow things down as I recovered. When asking for advice on how I should handle things. He would talk about options but always made sure it was my decision. His advice always took into account what was going on in my personal life. I often wonder why he worked so very hard when I couldn’t remember important details. His honesty with me may not have always been what I wanted to hear. But a the end of the day he was dead on right. The case took a few years but never left me out of the circle. He really did take care of me and looking back his advice was spot on. I pray I never get into the situation that brought us together. If you are looking for an attorney who is straight forward, honest with your best interest at the middle of all his firm does. Look no further, it was the best decision I made during the Turmoil that was my life. Thank You doesn’t seem enough to say to a man who absolutely changed my life.

Excellent Attorney
I don't have words to express my experience with Glen Wieland and his firm. Glen and his staff provided trust and dedication to me when I needed a helping hand. His fighting spirit in handling my workers comp case resulted in a satisfactory outcome. The entire staff especially Debbie his secretary, who was a channel of communication between Glen and I always provided me with professional, patient and helpful service. She made me feel confident through out the entire process. What I liked most about Glen's firm is that they treated me not as a client, but as family. Thank you Glen Wieland and firm for making a difference for me!

A truly wonderful experience
Glen represented me in a work comp claim, and I felt compelled to share my experience with others. He did an amazing job ensuring that I received the medical care that I was entitled to as well as to ensure that I was treated fairly throughout the entire process. His expertise in this area of law is impressive and was incredibly comforting to me during a very difficult time in my life. He has a wonderful office staff whom I interacted with frequently. Even more impressive was the personalized service I received from Glen himself, who called me on many occasions to discuss my case. He is an honest, caring attorney and a genuinely nice man that I feel incredibly blessed to have had represent me. Hire Glen...you won't be disappointed!

Great Attorney
Glen represented me for a workers’ comp accident. He took care of getting me the right doctor, my prescriptions filled, my medical bills paid and made sure that I was being paid properly for my wages. His staff was very friendly and always returned my calls. Glen was referred to me from a friend, having Glen represent me was the best thing I ever did.

Client
Mr. Wieland is an excellent attorney who is compassionate and ethical. He is respected by his clients and his peers. He is an attorney who actually returns his clients' telephone calls, which if you have been associated with other attorneys, you know this is rare. He answers all my questions no matter how long it takes. He is truly concerned about his clients. Too bad he cannot be cloned.

Workers compensation Attorney | Dec 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Up until 10 years ago, Glen Wieland and I were partners and our partnership lasted for for over a dozen years. While he also represented personal injury clients, he handled the worker's compensation clients in our practice. Glen always responded quickly and efficiently to any client's questions, and did an excellent job of representing his clients. He is very well respected by the local judiciary, and he consistently gets his clients everything to which they are entitled under the law. I refer any worker's compensation clients I get to Glen Wieland for representation in worker's compensation cases."
