Testimonial from an attorney who has gone up against John Winer, Esq. in court.


I have practiced law for the last 25 years in the state of California. During that time period I have practiced both as a defense attorney and a plaintiff’s attorney. I have known John D. Winer for most of my career.

I have been privileged to have the opportunity to witness the way in which Mr. Winer and his law firm litigate, settle and try significant personal injury and wrongful death cases.

Having been a defense attorney who handled a significant case against Mr. Winer’s former law firm, I have always admired the way that Mr. Winer, like an expert chess player, anticipates the next move of his opponent in a case and plans his strategy to overcome that move. By the time the opponent realizes what happened, Mr. Winer and his client are already on the road to victory.

I have also had the opportunity to be in trial with Mr. Winer. During the trial he handled the witnesses and evidence masterfully and his damage argument to the jury was perhaps the most impressive closing argument I have ever seen.

Over the years I have referred a large number of cases to Winer, McKenna, Burritt & Tillis LLP

and I would have no hesitancy in recommending him to any potential plaintiff in a serious personal injury, wrongful death, malpractice or abuse case.
