2006 Consumer Attorney of the Year – Awards Finalist
This prestigious award honors a plaintiffs’ lawyer who has achieved a significant result in a case that: (1) finally resolved in the years 2005/2006; and (2) assisted consumers or changed consumer law for the better in the State of California.
Mr. Winer represented two female employees in a sexual harassment case against Federal Express. Although the employees reported the harassment by a co-employee, management failed to take appropriate steps to protect them. This case is significant because its outcome will affect all of the 150,000-plus employees of FedEx and other working people throughout the United States and help guard against future discrimination in the workforce.
Million Dollar Advocates Forum – Mr. Winer was awarded membership to “the most prestigious group of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements.” Eligible since 1993 when the organization began. Member since 2001.
