Oakland Personal Injury Attorneys

Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP, is one of the top personal injury law firms in California, and we are leaders in addressing sexual harassment and employment discrimination across the state. Our partner attorneys have more than 60 years of combined experience, and founding attorney John D. Winer has been in private practice since 1980.

We represent clients throughout California who have suffered injuries due to the negligent, careless or wrongful acts of others. With offices in Oakland, San Francisco and Los Angeles, we are responsive, attentive and proactive in providing our clients with one-on-one, personalized legal services.

Virtuous Representation To Empower Our Clients

We provide compassionate legal counsel and aggressive representation in state and federal courts, taking on some of the largest defense law firms in the nation. We accept cases based on merit, and we pursue results with integrity. We take the time to build accurate, complete and solid cases for each of our clients.

Resourceful Employment Lawyers

Our personal injury and employment law practices are financed by the law firm. Every verdict and settlement we have obtained — which amount to more than $140 million — has been achieved on a contingency fee basis. Unless we get you money for your injuries, you pay no attorney fees.

Our Commitment To You

We offer free initial consultations in each of our practice areas. When you work with Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP, you will remain fully informed, and you can expect consistent follow-up communication.
