“David Winer treated me like a family member. From the minute I walked into his office for the first time to the minute the judge dismissed my case he made me feel extremely important. I couldn’t ask for more. I was extremely paranoid about my case. I’ve never been in trouble and felt I was arrested for no reason. Throughout the case he was calm and always prepared. He let me know each and every step he was about to take. He never kept me in the dark and always returned my calls and emails. If you hire David Winer just do what he says and trust that he always has your best interest at heart. He doesn’t represent you for the money, he represents you for the outcome. He’s a fighter and he’ll fight hard to get you the best outcome. David, I hope I never need your services again but if I do I will not hesitate to call. My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts and are forever indebted to you for not only getting my case resolved but for keeping me sane throughout the process”. ~ By a client, as written on the AVVO website.
