I have known Mr. Winer for almost 20 years. During that time I have served with him as Vice President of the California Trail Lawyers Association and Vice President of the Consumer Attorney’s of California.
I can say unequivocally that John D. Winer is considered to be one of the very top plaintiff’s trial lawyers in the state of California.
Through the years, I have asked Mr. Winer to speak on various panels at large seminars given for the purpose of the continuing education of other lawyers. I have asked Mr. Winer to speak on a number of topics including damages, trial and settlement techniques in many different kinds of cases including construction litigation. Mr. Winer’s speeches are frequently attended by the very best lawyers in California and are always well received.
I have also referred a number of cases to Mr. Winer and there have been at least a dozen cases in which I represented an injured worker in a worker’s compensation case while Mr. Winer represented the same worker in a civil case seeking recovery for emotional distress, pain and suffering and other damages not covered by worker’s compensation. In working with Winer, McKenna, Burritt & Tillis LLP, I have found the firm to always be highly ethical and to take whatever steps are necessary to maximize the worker’s recovery in both the worker’s compensation action and the civil case.
It seems that at least several times a year, I hear about yet another major verdict or settlement that Mr. Winer has received on behalf of one of his clients.
Mr. Winer is considered one of the leaders of the Plaintiff’s bar in the Bay Area and California, and a seriously injured person or survivors in a wrongful death case would be well served if Winer, McKenna, Burritt & Tillis LLP agreed to take their case.”
