Testimonials From Former Clients

  • "She fought for me and she showed the facts" There’s no words to describe how grateful I am to Kelli Burritt. She wasn’t just a lawyer through out my case, she was a damn fighter. She didn’t just put her mind into my case she put her heart into it. My case was not a short one and she stuck by me and won this. There was multiple men as defense lawyers and then there was Kelli. She fought for me and she showed the facts because she knew me, she knew the case, she as INVOLVED in it with me. And she put them all to shame. The strangest thing is I didn’t know how to pursue a case… I felt like what happened was my fault, I was ashamed, I was at a loss… I would have never ever gotten to where I am today without her and I hope she remembers that every damn day. Thank you Kelli & John! Sincerely, you both know damn well it’s sincere! You’re so badass at what you do. - K.S.

Specializing in sexual harassment, personal injury and employment cases, I would recommend them to any of my closest friends or relatives.

They are a great team of individuals that all play their part in organizing a plan to build solid cases deserving of maximum compensation.

  • "This firm was compassionate, calming and the fiercest advocate around to hold negligent therapists accountable for the harm they caused me. John Winer and I spoke for 3-4 hours before he offered to represent me. He listened, shared disbelief in hearing the circumstances and thoughtfully explained the strategy he would embark on and the value of the case. His partner Shawn Tillis took the litigation lead. Shawn is a silent giant. I had no idea what to expect and found a friend and advocate who understood the heinous acts foisted on me by unethical professionals and held them accountable resulting in a favorable conclusion while the two licensing agencies for the bad actors meted out the harshest disciplinary action one could. It gave me closure not otherwise attainable. I would only recommend this firm for therapist abuse." - Anonymous
  • "I was extremely happy with Winer and Burritt & Tillis's services. John, Ericka, and Melanie were very professional, knowledgeable, and efficient.

  • "The support staff is exceptionally professional. They were responsive to requests for information including a statement of accounts. They were transparent about the rates and fees and had integrity throughout the process of working through my case.

I felt she was forthright about process and potential outcomes" - Anonymous
  • "Testimonial from a client who was involved in a car accident. My experience as a client to Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP has been a very pleasant, hopeful, and fair one. About three years ago I was driving home from work in my brand new car when my car stopped accelerating on the highway almost during the peak of traffic times. I pulled over to call for some help while black smoke appeared to be spilling out of the hood of my car and gasoline fumes filled the inside of my vehicle. I was stuck inside my vehicle for what seemed like hours breathing in the toxic fumes completely oblivious to the fact that I was sitting in a car on fire. I was finally helped out of the vehicle by an undercover officer who pulled over to assist me. I could have died this day stuck inside my burning vehicle due to a malfunction and defect in the 4-month-old car that I bought zero miles off the lot." - B.H.

The next thing I knew, a car pulled in front of me, and even though I was not speeding, I was not able to stop in time to avoid an accident. As a result of the accident I broke my leg and it just would not heal. The case was originally handled by another law firm, but when it became clear that my injury was serious, my original lawyers knew to refer the case to Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP, who specialize in serious personal injury cases." - Tom Greathouse

  • "Testimonial from a client involved in a medical malpractice/assault case. There are two things one should always have in reserve. One is a good doctor; the other is a good attorney. I married the good doctor, but until I became involved in a complicated malpractice/assault case against a plastic surgeon several years ago, I did not realize the importance of having a skillful lawyer to help me reach a fair and equitable settlement." - Gretchen Haskin
  • "Testimonial from the parent of a 10 year old child who suffered serious injury in a medical malpractice incident. Our ten year old son, Timmy, nearly died during a routine heart surgery several years ago. As a result of a bad surgeon, Timmy lost the blood supply to most of the muscles and tissues on his leg. As a result he can not run and play with the other kids and will not be able to work as a manual laborer when he grows up. Timmy can barely walk a block because of his pain and weakness. After the surgery we suspected that there had been malpractice, but four different law firms refused to take on the big public institution who we believed had committed medical negligence. After being turned down a fourth time, we finally asked the lawyer who is in Los Angeles, “Who handles the really tough cases in the state?” He told us that Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP has a state wide reputation for taking on seriously injured plaintiffs against large corporations, including doctors and hospitals and obtaining exceptional results for their clients." - P. Guillian

However, when I asked a specialist, “who was the best attorney in the state of California for a case like mine,” I was told that it would be worth the trip to San Francisco to see if John Winer would handle my case." - Kristi Bain
  • "Testimonial from a former client who was seriously injured at 8 years of age. “When I was eight years old, I was crossing the road in a cross walk to get to my school when a motor vehicle failed to see me and ran into me, throwing me 30 or 40 feet in the air. I landed on my head and my back. People told me that I was unconscious for a period of time." - Grover “Rocky” Reece
