Testimonial from fellow attorney and past president of the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association.


I have been practicing as an attorney in San Francisco for the last 24 years. I am a past president of both the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association and the Lawyers Club of San Francisco.

I have known John Winer for approximately 15 years. During that time period I have referred cases to Mr. Winer, co-counseled cases with Mr. Winer and lectured with Mr. Winer on at least a half-dozen panels aimed at improving the litigation, settlement and trial skills of attorneys.

Whenever I refer a case to Winer, McKenna, Burritt & Tillis LLP I know that the case will be expertly handled and the client will receive the maximum amount of money recoverable for their damages.

When I co-counsel a case with Mr. Winer I know that our mutual client will have the benefit of Mr. Winer’s unique ability to be creative and aggressive while at the same time maintaining a positive relationship with the attorneys on the other side of the case, and, most importantly our mutual client.

I have also been impressed by the way that Mr. Winer has made it a point to give back to the legal community and the community at large by lecturing on a frequent basis to lawyers, health care providers and consumers and has fought for the rights of consumers, injured and abused people throughout the state of California.

I would highly recommend Winer, McKenna, Burritt & Tillis LLP to any person who needs an attorney in a serious physical or psychological injury case or in a wrongful death case.
