Testimonial from a client who was the target of sexual harassment at work

I used to work for a large corporation, but was forced to quit due to a sexual harassment by my supervisors. I was working and living in Southern California at the time and wanted to find a local lawyer. However, when I asked a specialist, "who was the best attorney in the state of California for a case like mine," I was told that it would be worth the trip to San Francisco to see if John Winer would handle my case.

At the time, I was anxious, depressed and extremely worried about my future. Mr. Winer refused to accept an up-front fee and agreed to take on my case on a contingency basis. He put together a legal team that left me feeling totally protected during the litigation while aggressively and successfully taking on my former company, despite its vast financial resources.

Not only did I receive a settlement which has left me financially secure for the rest of my life, but just as important, as a result of the litigation, my former company has changed its policies and procedures and no longer tolerates the type of behavior which left me so injured.

As a result of the representation of Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP, my life has completely changed for the better. I was empowered by the litigation largely because the law firm made me feel like I was part of their team.

During the time of my case, I was able to observe how Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP
handled, not only cases like mine, but also personal injury and wrongful death cases. They always put their heart into the cases and fought hard for their clients. I highly recommend Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP for anybody whose been injured as a result of the fault of another. They are the best!
