Attorney Profile

Attorney David J. Weiland is a partner at the Fresno law office of Coleman & Horowitt, LLP. At the Northern California firm since 2014, Mr. Weiland heads the litigation department, along with representing professionals and company leaders from throughout the United States and the rest of the world who need skilled, experienced representation as they face challenges in the following areas:

• Business and tort litigation
• Employment law
• Construction law and litigation
• Public agency
• Real estate and land use
• Professional liability defense
• Arbitration and mediation services

Mr. Weiland began his professional career in 1972 as a civil engineer after graduating from California State University, Fresno. After nearly 20 years as an engineer, he decided to further his education. He earned his Juris Doctor from San Joaquin College of Law in 1992, and The State Bar of California approved him to practice later that same year. The real-world experience that he gained during his years in engineering gives him an insight into the worlds of business, construction, professional liability and land use that few attorneys have.

During his 20-plus years as an attorney, Mr. Weiland has earned a reputation for possessing outstanding legal abilities and extensive knowledge, as evidenced by the number of representative cases on which he has served as counsel. He is peer-rated as AV Preeminent* according to Martindale-Hubbell, and he holds an "Excellent" Avvo rating. In addition, his experience in business and his rational approach to solving legal problems led to his appointment to San Joaquin College of Law's Board of Trustees.

*AV Preeminent and BV Distinguished are certification marks of Reed Elsevier Properties Inc., used in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell ratings fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.
