“Over the last ten years I’ve had the privilege of acting as an expert witness in a number of significant cases for Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP. As a psychiatrist who has published numerous articles and books on the subjects of psychological trauma, professional sexual abuse and work place sexual harassment, I am often called upon to consult on legal cases involving these difficult issues.
I’ve had the opportunity to work on cases with some of the most prominent attorneys in America, and I can honestly say that none can compare with John Winer when it comes to understanding physical and psychological trauma and conveying the devastating effects of trauma to a jury.
Whether a case stems from physical and emotional distress, damages following an accident which causes a life changing physical injury or whether the case stems from purely psychological abuse, I am always impressed by the highly professional and effective way in which Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP represents its clients.
After testifying on behalf of John Winer’s clients at trial and watching his command of the complex psychological and legal issues in the case, I have no hesitancy recommending the law firm whenever an attorney, colleague, patient or friend asks for a referral for a trial attorney who understands psychological trauma and emotional distress and life-altering changes stemming from a severe physical injury.”
