I attended law school at NSU where I graduated in the top 15% of my class. I was also a recipient of the Leo Goodwin Fellowship, worked as a faculty research assistant, held a position on the Board of Editors of the Moot Court Society, and competed on the Moot Court Society traveling team.
During law school I worked for nationally recognized jury consultant Dr. Amy Singer, where I obtained invaluable experience with juries working on such publicized cases as the State of Florida tobacco litigation, Tylenol death cases, and several aviation disasters. I joined Fenster & Faerber as a law clerk after my second year of law school and officially as an attorney in 1999.
While at Fenster & Faerber I devoted my practice to civil litigation. I spent my time helping victims of medical malpractice and nursing home abuse. I also handled all types of personal injury cases ranging from slip and falls to construction site accidents. I successfully litigated hundreds of catastrophic cases resulting in over 100 million dollars in jury verdicts.
I joined Winston & Clark in May of 2006 as an associate and became a partner in March of 2008. In 2011 I became a named partner and the firm became Winston, Clark & Wigand, P.A. While at Winston, Clark & Wigand I continued to handle all types of personal injury cases as well as expanding my practice to contingent commercial litigation.
In 2012 I started The Wigand Law Firm, which specializes in providing personalized service to select clients. In addition to my position in The Wigand Law Firm I am also partner in the law firm of Williams, Hilal, Wigand, Grande, PLLC formed in 2014, which has offices in Davie, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami and Orlando and provides a full range services for both individual and corporate clients.
I have an AV peer review rating by Martindale-Hubbell. I am admitted to practice in Florida State Court, The United States District Court Southern District, The United States District Court Middle District, and The United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
I am a former certified arbitrator for the Broward County Better Business Bureau. I am a member of the American Association for Justice, The Florida Justice Association, Broward County Justice Association, and both the Broward County Bar Association and West Broward Section. I am currently serving on the Broward County Bar Association Bench and Clerk Committee and Lawyer Referral Committee and I am also a past director of the Broward County Justice Association, member of the Broward County Bar Association Bench and Bar Committee, and Local Rules Sub Committee.
