Best Foreclosure Attorney. The assistance that I received from Attorney Weidner was invaluable. At all times, he made me feel as if I was his only client. The personal attention that my case received proved beyond a doubt very effective. He always took the time to speak with me when I called and made sure that I was aware of all my options and assisted me in making informed decisions about my case. I had a very favorable outcome when Attorney Weidner was able to get my case dismissed. Additionally, his office staff was always very courteous and helpful when I would call or email the office. Attorney Weidner made a bad situation less painful and produced spectacular results.~ Foreclosure Client
Always in the know. Mr. Weidner has been handling business and personal legal matters for me for a little under 8 years. I've worked with many attorney's prior to working with Mr. Weidner, and none have ever been as knowledgeable, and certainly none have ever kept open lines of communication in the same fashion Mr. Weidner has. When it comes to legal matters, Matt is always my first call. ~ John
