Testimonial from a vocational/life care specialist.

I am a vocational/life care planning specialist frequently called upon to testify in significant legal cases on issues of loss of earnings, medical needs and attendant care needs of plaintiffs. I have been retained in cases by attorneys for both plaintiffs and defendants.

Over the last 15 years I have been retained by John D. Winer to testify as an expert on many occasions. Many of these cases have involved serious injuries or wrongful deaths involving hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars of potential losses to the plaintiffs.

My experience with work working with Winer, McKenna, Burritt & Tillis LLP has been that the firm will take all necessary steps to ensure that their clients receive full and just compensation for their losses without overreaching.

I have been consistently impressed by the way that Mr. Winer is able to come up with creative theories to overcome obstacles in cases. Although my role in legal cases is to provide a reasoned, unbiased analysis of a case I am able to observe which attorneys, whether on the plaintiff side or the defense side will go the extra mile to receive the best result possible for their client. Mr. Winer is one of those attorneys who clearly cares about his clients and spends the time, effort and money necessary to present their case in a favorable yet ethical manner.
