Tremendous Lawyer

I would highly recommend Evan Winer. My boyfriend was arrested on an aggravated battery charge. It was night time, so I left a message at this law office for a lawyer to call me as soon as possible. Because the police had held him over night. He called me VERY promptly, and gave me a bunch of information. The bail was very high, and all the money we had right then. He was very flexible with our financial situation. Besides that, he was an AMAZING attorney. We had a very difficult case, and he did amazing. He got the best outcome possible for our case. When someone is guilty and they have strong evidence against them, it’s hard to have a decent outcome. Especially him being black and the police weren’t treating him right from the start. Evan did amazing , and with the series of felonies my boyfriend was facing, Evan even managed to get him NO jail time. Amazing. Can’t thank him enough for everything he’s done for us. With a public defender, he would of been in jail. He helped us get through this and be able to keep our family together.

David Winer was worth every penny! He knows his field inside and out and knows how to present any situation you may have in the way that will get favorable results. But by far the most valuable resource he brings to any case is his experience and familiarity with the administrators you'll have to deal with. This rapport turns people who may look on you with harsh bias into allies who use their power in your favor to help secure the justice you deserve. Hire David and get it right the first time and over with quickly instead of failing over and over again for years costing you many times his reasonable fees

 by Jennifer

I am so happy with the result that David Winer gave me - I couldn’t be happier.

Hello everyone!

I highly recommend Evan Winer.

He is a real professional who helped me with a very complicated case that I thought was hopeless. But Evan did something unbelievable. The results exceeded all expectations. I really saw that he did a great job. He handled everything professionally, and was always friendly and positive.

I would recommend him to anyone. In the most difficult cases always go to this office and ask for Evan Winer.

You will definitely win in this case if you go to him.

 by jack

Evan took on my case with less than a day till my court appearance was required. I could not be happier with the job he did and how short of time he had with it! I would recommend him to anyone and will definitely save his number for any future legal problems.

License Reinstatement

David was very knowledgeable and really prepared me for what to expect going through this process. He's given me so much hope for the future and I wouldn't recommend any other attorney for this type of matter.

"Just Relax"

Currently on a 5 year strict permit for driving and caught a speeding ticket. Any moving violation against me will terminate my license. Mr. Winer was able to get my ticket dropped and supervision. Year later catch another speeding ticket, this time I'm freaking out, instantly call Mr. Winer and I remember him saying " JUST RELAX " after he said that, I had a sense of comfort finally. Mr. Winer was able to get the 2nd ticket thrown out. Mr. Winer is very easy to work with, communicative, responsive, and fair. Thank You Mr. Winer for your help!

 by Jeff M.
License reinstated!

David was simply awesome! Honest and friendly and made what seem like a daunting task easy. From day one a plan was put into place and the results speak for themselves. I truly appreciate the time and effort that was put into everything and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I highly recommend anyone in need of help to reach out to David and the Winer law office.

 by Ron
Great Job!

Evan was not just a lawyer, but a person. Everyone treated me like a number in the system except him. He did a great job reviewing my case and did everything he said he would. When things felt bad, he keep me positive. My case had a great outcome thanks to him!

 by R.R.
Highly Recommended!

Highly recommended! Evan is extremely professional and truly care about his client. He works for the best possible outcome for his client. He is easily accessible via text or email, highly responsive and does not mind answering any question no matter how trivial that might be. A very calm, honest and a genuine individual. I can't speak highly enough of him! Evan was able to negotiate a deal of my DUI case by the first court date. I heard that not many attorneys can accomplish that. Thank you, Evan!

 by KP
DUI Reduced to Reckless Supervision

Evan was very professional and knowledgeable about my DUI case and was able to educate me regarding the law as it pertains to my particular case. Evan was bale to guide me throughout the process to help make the process much easier and reduce the stress on myself. I would highly recommend retaining the legal representation of Evan J Winer. Evan was able to deliver the results I was looking for and helped clean up the mess I got myself in.

 by A.T.
Seasoned Professional

Evan Winer is a seasoned, capable professional who knows the ropes and delivers exactly what he promises. I recommend him highly without reservation. You can’t go wrong with him.

 by S.R.
Case dismissed!

I would most definitely refer Evan Winer to anybody I know in need of help. He worked with me when I explained my situation and I was more then happy with the ending results. I was pulled over for a tail light out and found my license was suspended. When I heard that I could do 1 year in jail and pay a $2500 fine plus court costs I was honestly scared. Thank God I called this guy cause both my tickets were dismissed. Thank you Evan, I would call again if ever in need of help!

 by Michael

Mr. Evan Winer was successful at clearing me of an injustice that shouldn't of happened to me. He was efficient, courteous and truthful.

 by Jun
Best lawyer in Lake County with excellent legal service

I received three traffic tickets including class A misdemeanor for speeding and the others. Evan Winer helped me out wih these tickets and those tickets were all gone. Only court supervision has remained to my record. I would recommend to my close friends and even family when they face any traffic violation issues.

 by HD
Excellent Attorney

Mr. David Winer is very professional. He helped me get out of a serious Traffic case. I will never forget what he has done to make sure I was given a fair trial. He was able to prove the case beyond any reasonable doubt and I am more than pleased with the outcome. I feel so indebted to you for your hard work.

Dedicated, Brilliant and Honest Attorney

Mr. Winer was the attorney for a close family member on a DUI case. I was so impressed with his honesty in handling the case. He is truly dedicated to his clients and strives to get the best results. He was there with my family member from the beginning of the case to the end. If you are looking for a great criminal, DUI attorney, Mr. Evan Winer is absolutely superb at what he does.

 by Robert Jones

I was without a license for 15 years because of a DUI in Illinois. I tried to do it on my own 3 times and failed. I live in Michigan now, have been for the last 8 yrs. I looked online for a lawyer in Michigan none of them would touch it because I got the DUI in Illinois. I looked for Illinois attorneys and came across David Winer. I saw the reviews and called him. He took my case and with a lot of E-mails, and phone calls David helped me get my Michigan Drivers License within under a year. It felt like forever, but he got it done. I can't say enough about David, other than he is awesome. I can't thank him enough. The best thing was that it was 3 days before Christmas that I got the approval letter to get my License. Thank you again David you are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mr. Evan Winer represented my child (minor) in a juvenile case. Mr. Winer is an excellent & extremely professional attorney. Mr. Winer is a true advocate for his clients. Mr. Winer is able to communicate effectively with not only parents but also with minors to ensure clarity and understanding. Mr. Winer is always on time for every court date.

At the end of the day he will be at your side to fight for the best possible outcome no matter the circumstance. Love this man as a lawyer and as a friend. Thank you Evan.

Failure to report an accident

I cannot say enough about David Winer. I never met him before and never needed an attorney before now. He was very confident in my case, which turned out to be more serious than I thought. There were things I did not understand about certain laws in Illinois that could have been very bad for me. He assured me that my outcome would be very favorable and it was. He is super professional and caring every step of the way. He saved me from having high insurance rates and damage to my background. He is truly a Classy Act and I will be forever grateful to this wonderful attorney. After everrything in court was over. I had to just stop and thank him so much for the good job that he did for me. I will forever praise him. Many people have careers in a profession, but not many have talent in their profession. David is a very skillful & talented person. Again, thank you for saving me.

 by CR
Saved my career

Evan is extremely professional and caring. He first met me on MEMORIAL DAY and answer my calls and emails at any time. He is understanding of your situation. He will tell all the possible outcomes and how to achieve the most favorable. He got me the absolute best possible outcome for a domestic violence case. Evan saved my career. I am forever indebted to him.

Class Act!

David Winer is truly a "Class Act".  After reviewing my case he assured me he could help me as long as took the steps that were needed . David made sure I was prepared when it was time for my hearing .  Prior to meeting Dave I had gone to a formal hearing alone, I had know idea what to expect needless to say I was denied.  David is very knowledgeable and will guide you in the right direction. I'm very grateful for his help I now have an "RDP" and will soon be fully reinstated.  Thank You David Winer.

5 Stars! With David Winer on your side, you'll never lose! Best lawyer in Lake County. I'm so greatful. Thank you again!

 by Glenda Volner

I can't really say enough good things about David. My son's case seemed hopeless with all of his driving violations. We knew that the prospect of his going to jail was a real possibility. David came highly recommended by another attorney. Today, my son has his license plus only 6 months of supervision. David's expertise, professionalism, and caring attitude are outstanding, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you so very much, David!

 by Jessica
The Most Amazing Lawyer in the World!!

Before I start my review, I want to say that I do not believe this, or any review will do David justice. I could not possibly write a strong enough review to describe how effective, amazing, and wonderful he is. My driving privileges were revoked, I had a 10 page driving abstract with over 16 speeding tickets. Every lawyer I went to said there was no hope, every time I called the Secretary of State they said there was no hope. My revocation Informal Hearing was denied, I thought I would never be able to drive again. My life, my job and son depended on me getting them back. David swooped in like a HERO and was able to get my licenses back in less then 30 days. He brought back tickets from 2010 was able to get supervision or have them completely dropped. He was effective, professional and quick. Extremely attentive and caring, not to mention the courts love him. Then after all that, the SOS made a mistake with a ticket that David was able to get dismissed, it still showed up. David went to the DMV that day and made them correct it. He called the following day and surprised me with the words, "Go get your license". He is amazing!! Not to mention, his price was very fair. Even knowing how desperate I was he was still extremely fair. Thank you David!!

 by Curtis

David Winer provided us with excellent representation on our DUI case. He was extremely knowledgeable regarding the legislation and the court process. His position as both a defense attorney and prosecutor helped give us a valuable insightful and balanced approach to defending our case. He was very responsive and was always available to answer questions. We are very happy with the outcome of our case and would recommend David to anyone else who has similar legal challenges.

 by Danny
Thank You- SO MUCH !!!

Mr. Winer is clearly an expert in his field. From day one until the end he was instantly available and this was a year long process. His counsel was perfect in every situation that required it and there were many. It may not be mandatory to have an attorney for this procedure but I can, looking back, emphatically say there was very little chance of a positive outcome without his help.

 by A client
Amazing DUI and Traffic Lawyer

David has represented me over the past year for my DUI. He is extremely knowledgeable and an excellent trial lawyer. He is always responsive to my various questions and efficient in handling my needs.

 by MG
I Highly recommend David Winer

I’d like to thank David Winer for his expertise, professionalism, and attention to detail in handling my case. My license was revoked after my second DUI, and I was very worried that with the circumstances of my case, I’d never be able to drive again. Every step of the way, David was always honest and upfront about what to expect and what would be required. He helped me navigate the process to first acquire an RDP and, eventually, to have my license reinstated. In every instance, he replied quickly to my emails and phone calls. I will always be grateful for his help, and I would recommend him without hesitation.

 by Joseph
David Winer is Simply the Best of the Best

I strongly recommend David Winer. He made my case straight forward and as easy as possible. I was able to text and call him whenever I had any questions and he answered them in a reasonable time. Over all I'm extremely happy with his performance.

A Trusted Advocate

There are a lot of attorneys who advertise that they specialize in DUI and driving related offenses, I spoke with many but ultimately chose Dave to represent me based on his confidence on specific items related to my case as well as his unwillingness to offer false promises. Dave was careful to explain the process that I could expect, he went over all of the unknowns and possible outcomes. Throughout the process Dave was willing to put in the extra effort to dig into case law related to some of the very unique characteristics of my case, which in the end was a huge benefit in securing the best possible outcome. It was Dave who came up with the plea agreement which he pushed hard to get accepted allowing me to deal with my sentence in my home state. Dave was forceful with me to ensure that I put myself in the best possible position before going into court which helped ensure the plea agreement was able to be signed on the spot.

Dave was someone who walked me through the process, did not over-commit, but kept pushing for the best outcome. In the end, I felt that Dave was by far the very best choice for my case and I am extremely relieved that I chose Dave Winer to represent me in this case. Dave came through for me with flying colors.

A Totally Great Lawyer!

Great lawyer. Very well informed and knowledgable. Was able to clearly explain everything that needs to be done and makes sure you are prepared.

 by Diana
God Bless you Mr. David Winer

i don;t have much experience with lawyers and did not know where to go for help. I called Mr. David Winer and immediately felt in good hands. In our first meeting he explained all my options and made recommendations. Thankfully everything turned out in my favor and i owe it all to Mr. Winer's experience and knowledge of the system and the respect that has earned working at his craft. Apart from his experience and knowledge working with the courts system i found him to be an totally honest and caring human being. I felt in good hands because of his integrity and his humanity. Something rare to fine in a person let alone a lawyer. God bless you Mr. Winer.

 by Jeff

Great Lawyer for All Secretary of State hearings

David Winer was recommended to me by my other lawyer who I used in court. He told me that David was the best of the best, and that he would be the person to go to if ever wanted to get my license back. I listened to my lawyer and decided to use David as my attorney for my secretary of state hearing. Great choice! I learned that David has very specific ways of doing things, because he knows Exactly how secretary of state hearings work. In other words, David knows which approaches work, and which approaches do not work. If you are in a situation where your license is revoked and you need an attorney to help you get your license back, I highly suggest that you use David Winer!

 by Rachel
Best representation anyone could ask for

David Winer is an excellent attorney with excellent communication and excellent results. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for a positive outcome the first time around with the secretary of state. If ever needed again I would retain David Winer as my attorney in a heart beat!

 by Jeff
Waukegan's Truest, Most Professional and Most Caring Attorney

I spent 5 years working with David Winer. He was my chosen attorney for getting my license fully reinstated. The difference between David and other attorneys is his authenticity as a person. David proved to me that it was important for him to establish a good working relationship. David took an interest in me as a person and really cared about helping me get through very tough times, money rarely came up with David and to be honest I thought I was going to spend a lot more than I did. At a time when I didn't deserve much respect David looked past my situation and simply wanted to help make a difference. His ability to guide me along through the process was very important in the confidence I needed to get through the Secretary of State meetings. In the end I wasn't sure what was going to happen but David assured me that everything was going to be okay. He was right. I hope I never have to see David again but if I do he will for sure be my attorney. I don't believe there is a more caring, honest, honorable and effective attorney in lake or cook county Illinois.

David got my driver's license back when I thought it would not be possible!

I have quite a history with DUI's my license was revoked for 5 years, after 3 years I am allowed to apply for restricted driving permit. I thought for sure I would be denied for the first Secretary of State hearing, but with David's guidance & expertise he clearly explained what all I needed to do. I followed his suggestions & recommendations' to the "T". I was approved for my RDP. I am forever grateful and have already recommended a friend to call him to help him out as well. I would have to say that David is the best in the business, he knows what he is doing! Hopefully I will not have to use him again myself! I suggest him with the highest marks!

 by A DUI client
Exceptional representation yields excellent results

I highly recommend David Winer to handle my DUI offense and honestly, I thought I would never get my driver's license back. My case was complex with multiple DUI's. I followed David's advice completely; counseling, evaluation, etc. and 18 months or so later my driving privileges were fully reinstated. Simply stated, David is the best at what he does. I highly recommend him.

 by Richard
Attorney David Winer IS THE BEST AROUND

I would like to thank Attorney David Winer for getting me driving again after having my license revoked nearly 30 years ago, From my first meeting with Mr. Winer I knew I had made the right decision Mr. Winer was upfront and honest and answered all my questions in a way that I could understand. ON 9/13/2014 I received a letter from the secretary of state that I my driving privileges in Illinois have been reinstated and I will be allowed to drive in the state of Illinois again I would like to thank attorney David Winer.

 by DUI Client
Honest, reliable and responsive attorney

I considered 3 attorneys before making a decision to hire David Winer. David was not the cheapest (that was $2,000) and he wasn't the most expensive (that was $6,000) but he was fair and honest. I was charged with a 2nd offense DUI and it was reduced to reckless driving. When I met with Dave he told me what I could expect, what he thought he could do - and why - and then he did it! If you are looking for an attorney who is honest, responsive, and doesn't promise more than he can deliver, then Dave Winer is the attorney you should hire. Finding yourself charged with a DUI is a daunting experience. If you are willing to accept responsibility and looking for an attorney who will help you get the best possible result - then hire Dave Winer.

Great attorneys at the Law Offices of Winer & Winer!

his is a review of Evan Winer, a partner at this same law firm that David Winer is at. Evan Winer represented me earlier today for a traffic violation (of which I was admittedly guilty). My name was the first to be called after court had begun; I approached the bench, and my case was dismissed completely! I was under the impression Evan knew the judge because the only conversation exchanged had nothing to do with my case hahaha....just some quick light convo, then he looked at me and said "This case is completely dismissed, you'll owe nothing today, thank you Mrs. Hobbs." No fines, no court costs, and nothing will appear on my record; I was blown away! Evan was very professional, he was available when I called him the day of, he showed up on time, and helped me out tremendously. He saved me at least $300-$350 I would have had to pay, and I will be referring friends for sure!

 by Victoria
Thank you, David

At the beginning , I was little bit nervous about the case and got the impression that didn't get enough attention, however when the bell rang, David was in control of the situation and resolved it in the fastest and most profitable way for us.

Thank you - David and the Winers'

You are the best, wish you the best.

He's Got Your Back

David Winer is the entire package. David is not only a very specialized skilled attorney who will keep you informed, but a great individual as well. While going though a rough time in my life, David was empathetic and understanding throughout. He's got your back every step of the way. If you want someone who will fight hard and well for you, there is none better.

 by A criminal defense client

Again, Dave saved me from losing my drivers license and also getting convicted of a misdemeanor charge of possession of a pipe. Over many years Dave has helped me a lot for all different type of cases. All the friends that I have referred to him were totally thankful for Dave as he saved them too. Dave always returns his phone calls, is on time to court and explains everything in an understandable manner. He is also extremely smart and you always feel he is on your side. Whether you have felony, misdemeanor or traffic ticket Dave is the man to hire. He also knows a lot of people in the court system, which always helps. I will always use Dave and continue to tell my friends to use him also, Believe me, he is the lawyer to go to, you won't be sorry. He is the best one I have ever used.

 by Aaron
Impressed and satisfied

I have four sons and I have hired David for every type of case from traffic tickets to misdemeanors and a couple of felony for my kids. Each and every time David did a tremendous job. He is very honest, direct and always prepared. There is no BS or boasting from him as he gets the job done with utmost professionalism and success. He is prompt to court, returns all his calls promptly and knows everybody in the courthouse. I have used his service over the course of 15 years for my four kids and have never once been disappointed and neither will you. Believe me you will be IMPRESSED AND SATISFIED.

Winner go with Dave Winer

If you're reading this because you are on the fence about who to choose for legal representation regarding reinstatement of driving privileges, do yourself a favor and go with Dave Winer. After just my first hearing I recently received full reinstatement of my driving privileges with two DUIs and a possession of marijuana charge on my record. That's amazing! Dave will assist you with the paperwork for you, explain and walk you through the process and hand you all the tools to help get your license back. Just listen to Dave and do EXACTLY what he says. The process isn't easy and there are some things that only you can do for yourself, but he takes care of the rest in a timely and professional fashion. Take my advice. If Dave Winer can't get you your license, then no one can.

 by Brian M

In 2008 I got a DUI at a road block in Wacuconda. I didn't know at the time that my DL was suspended and was arrested for a DUI and no license. The police seized my Cadillac truck due to the fact that I had no license so it was the States property As we fought the DUI, David thought we can win the truck case also. That was my first sign of hope. David did his homework and after looking into the fact that I didn't have my DL at the time didn't give the state the right to keep my vehicle. After a few months we WON the truck back. Then I had DUI to fight. This took time and it was well worth it. We went to trial and David put the State Trooper on the stand asking a multitude of questions. The officer wasn't clear on his answers. David kept asking questions and the officer still couldn't answer them with a straight answer. Then it was my turn to testify. David was very clear on what he was asking me. I felt easy going on the stand. I was scared but David made me feel welcome It sounds crazy but think about it a Judge, honesty and a lawyer who has your back for you that very moment. I answered all the question and never felt like I had lost this case. After the judge made his ruling of NOT GUILTY of the DUI. I thank you David and all the hard work. I would ask you to think about who you hire for you life because there are many snakes dressed up as lawyer's waiting to take you money. NONE have had my back like David. I also used David to get my Driving Permit and that wasn't pretty either as I picked up another DUI in Kane county and was found guilty of class 4 felony. I was looking at 4 years revoked. I asked David, nobody else to help me get a Permit. We went to the SOS office and guess what, I was granted a permit just last week. Five years with out driving do to my DUI'S. I have not had a drink in 3 years and lets say David has seen my looking my best. LOL I wanted to say THANK YOU for standing by my side each time I was in trouble. We have a long bond because of my drinking problem but like David said "I am proud of you Brian." Over the years we have grown and I wouldn't hire anyone else for this JOB. Ask yourself this do you want the best? If yes CALL DAVID ASAP. THANK YOU DAVID FOR EVERYTHING. I OWE THIS TO MY HARD WORK FOR STAYING SOBER. I OWE YOU NOT TO SHOW UP AGAIN IN COURT BUT FOR A SMILE IN YOUR OFFICE.. LOVE YA BUDDY...

Thank you, thank you, thank you

I just got a reinstatement letter from the Secretary of the state. David helped me with my 2009 2nd dui case DR reinstatement hearing. I had a lawyer who worked with me before David and was extremely unhappy with him. He was irresponsible, rude, and did not inform/prepare me at all for the hearing. I was so lost and nervous at the hearing and was denied. I was devastated and searching for a lawyer who would take over my case. I was very lucky to find David Winer. He was well organized, professional, and prepared me well of what to expect at the formal hearing. He was confident about the outcome after my second hearing and he was right. I really can't thank enough.

Thank you so much for everything! you are the best lawyer ever. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I highly recommend David Winer. He was very knowledgable in the current laws and answered all my questions. He made a difficult situation much easier to get through.

Best of the Best

David Winer is truly the best of the best. Always prompt to answer all my questions and was very informative. He was very professional and easy to talk to. He did an excellent job representing me and was always accommodating of all my needs he truly went the extra mile to ensure I get my license back. He is an outstanding lawyer who I would retain again and refer to others without hesitation.

David Winer makes time and accommodates his clients. I was recommended by another lawyer to Mr. Winer in order obtain an RDP for work and for full reinstatement of my driving privileges. He is very honest which can be hard to find with a lawyer; his preparation is outstanding. With his help I was able to get an RDP early and full reinstatement of my license on my first try. He helped me get my life back and I wouldn't think twice about referring him!

Excellent Preparation and Representation

Harold and David Winer did an outstanding job representing me in my second DUI case (Harold was also my counsel for my first offense 14 years ago).

Even though there were difficult circumstances complicating my case, Harold made sure I was thoroughly prepared for my day in court. We discussed the worst-case scenario, and he never over-promised an outcome. Through his excellent efforts, I was able to get a very favorable outcome and served no jail time, which was exceptional, considering the difficult situation.

When it came to applying for a driving permit at the Secretary of State, David met with me on several occasions to review the process in detail, ensure the supporting paperwork was in order, and prepare me to face the Hearing Officer from the Secretary of State during my formal hearing.

Both David and Hal were extremely professional, experienced, and knowledgeable. They both returned emails and phone calls promptly, so I was comfortable during every step. I’m grateful for their help and would recommend them without reservation.

Great Brothers

The best thing about Evan and David is that they are also prosecutors in addition to being defense attorneys. I consider this an invaluable resource since they know what's going on both sides of the fence.

Evan did a good job but, unfortunately, I really stacked the deck against him and accepted a revoked license after my fourth DUI. David was able to step in and get me a resticted work permit as soon as I was eligible...quite an accomplishment. He also provided excellent coaching to help me recently obtain my full reinstatement, again, as soon as I was eligible .

I was quite pleased with their work.

Perfect representation

I have had several felony cases that both Evan and David have helped me with. Each time charges were either DISMISSED or reduced. Neither brother will take no for an answer, they ALWAYS fight for thier clients. Never did one day of jail with the Winer Brothers defending me. Would recommend them to anyone.

Perfectly Prepared

I had my driver's license revoked in Illinois after receiveing a DUI in Wisconsin ten years ago. After a few failed attempts I was fortunate enough to meet and hire Dave Winer. This man knows exactly what he's doing. From our first meeting he took his time and explained to me what we had to do in order to retrieve my license. He came with a plan of action, I followed the plan and suddenly I find myself with my license reinstated! Going to an informal hearing can be nerve-racking, but Dave's instructions on how to prepare were perfect and things went as smoothly and easily as possible. The fee was completely reasonable and money well spent. If you need help, Dave knows exactly what he's doing and will take the time to make sure everything's done correctly. One more thing, Dave is excellent at returning phone calls quickly. My previous experiences with attorneys is that they did not place a high priority on returning phone calls and that was stressful. Dave is a complete professional who makes a potentially stressful process much easier!

As good as they come

5 stars out of 5

I was looking at 3 Felonies and 2 misd. and could have served many years in prison had I not found David Winer. I had a unique case with many issues from the start and had many fears I wouldn't receive a fair chance at freedom but from the moment I met David Winer (my second attorney because I fired the first one) I knew immediately he was going to do everything in his power not only to keep me free but to get the best outcome possible. David spent almost an hour with my wife and I, and our daughter, discussing the case. He took his time and was as professional as they come. He actually made my wife happy too! 😉 (not always easy in these situations) The fact that the state had video footage of myself not being the most tasteful person, that alone could have caused many problems for us considering the facts. I had a Felony DUI, 2 Driving Revoked charges, Aggravated Battery to a police officer, 1 other Felony and 1 more Misdemeanor. We had several options of attack but none of them were very good. We ended up getting the state to drop the Felonies, including the DUI for an offered plea (No Contest) to 1 Driving While Revoked and 1 reduced charge of Simple Battery(Misdemeanor). Simple Battery was much, much better obviously. I ended up with a total of only fifteen days in county jail. You must understand that the driving revoked is a mandatory ten days and the second one is more. We had to actually take our plea to 3 (THREE) different judges on my trial date because 2 other judges denied the plea! The 3rd judge accepted and gave me a lecture about just how well thought out and excellent my plea actually was. (Thanks David, you are the man) We definitely dodged a bullet with this case. My family and myself are extremely thankful for the representation we received and we would all definitely not only refer David Winer but we would say it would be a terrible idea NOT to hire him. You only get one chance at freedom and I would never risk it. David treated me with respect and told me exactly how it was at all times, no BS. He called me the day before court EVERY court date and even did a follow-up after my case was finished. He is as professional and thorough as he could possibly be and I would give him 10 Stars NOT 5!!!

Thank you again David for your outstanding performance!

re: son, ishar hernandez

from a very greatful mom,

thank-you very much to Mr. Evan J. Winer. My 19 yr old son was scheduled to appear in court for driving on a suspended license for the second time. I made different calls to different lawyers and decided to go with Mr evan for three reasons: lowest rate, offered to meet us on court day an hour earlier so I wuldnt have to drive all the way to his office in wauconda since it was abit far and for me a single mom exhausted and broke it meant a lot, and then he made it sound easy like he really new what he was talking about.

Now, lowest rate? most think: you get what you pay for. not at all, THIS WAS TRULY , REALLY TOP NOTCH LAW KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE. Listening to him talk I new I gad nothing to worry about and that my son was in good hands. I new I could trust him and he did not dissapoint me a bit, to the contrary when everything was done and over I could not help but to admire the man even more. He made everything seem so easy and made it go so smoothly. DEFFINETLY I WILL RECOMEND HIM TO EVERYONE!

Greatful mom.

Revoked License Reinstated After 12 Years Of Not Driving

I was recommended to David Winer's office by my DUI evaluator. He had high regards of David's performance and success rate. Since I had already been denied driving priveledges my first go around with the Secretary of State with no legal representation, I decided that I did not want to waste any more of my time and frustration and was willing to take a financial risk in David's services.

Since I currently reside in Iowa, Mr. Winer's advice and instructions through the phone call process was very helpful in preparing me for the upcoming formal hearing. He was very patient with my lack of knowledge of the process and formalities and was instrumental in my eventual success.

I cannot describe in words the full extent of my appreciation and joy in knowing that I will soon be behind the wheel, soon being able to enjoy the freedom that comes with being able to drive wherever and whenever I want. It has been a long 12 years of walking and riding my bike to the places I needed to go. Now I have the luxury of experienceing the open road once again.

Thank you David and staff for your professional and courteous service that you provided me.

Absolutely Top Notch

I recently contacted David Winer after having him recommended to by one of my classmates in risk education. I had met with three lawyers already, but did not really feel comfortable with what they were telling me. As soon as I met with David, I knew that I was in competent hands. He told me exactly everything that I needed to get prepared and I followed to the letter. I could not believe how quickly we were able to get in to see the hearing officer. I was nervous, but knew I was well prepared. I went into this process hoping to get a work permit, with the best case scenario being one without a BAIID requirement. When I received my decision back from the Secretary of State, my jaw almost hit the floor. I was granted full reinstatment! I didn't even think that was possible. I just got back behind the wheel for the first time in 13 months and it felt so good. It is great to have my freedom and my life back. David I cannot thank you enough for the quality of representation that you provided. I am so glad that I was choosy in the process and got the best. I would HIGHLY recommend your services to anyone that asked. Thank you again, Joe
