Snyder & Wiles PC
President of Snyder & Wiles, Gladys Wiles focuses on real estate, personal injury, business, estates and probate.
Her leadership style is “transformational” and “by example,” she said. “I believe that by encouraging my team to take on tasks outside of their comfort zone, I have not only enriched that team member into developing new skills, but have also enriched our team as a whole, which is always better for business. Confidence built through experience is good for everyone.”
“Being an immigrant, moving to the USA at the age of 3 years old, I was always fascinated by law, and especially the Constitution,” Wiles continued. “I loved the fact that the law provided accountability and freedom for all. Becoming an attorney seemed like a natural … vocation for me from a young age. My first job as an associate attorney meant I got the files and cases no one wanted, so that I (could) learn and become proficient in the areas I was passionate about. I try to learn something new every day.”
Wiles is a full-time, single parent “to two amazing teens,” she said. Her daughter is a freshman at the University of Pittsburgh, and her son is a sophomore at Bethlehem Catholic. “I’m a soccer mom, and love cheering very loud at my son’s games. I dedicate my ‘outside of work’ life to my children and family because they are my ‘why’ for working hard.”
