  • 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.” Read More

Letter From A Former Client

I never thought I would be put in the position of having to make the torturous decision of whether to file a sexual harassment claim against my current employer. I was sexually harassed by the President of the company I worked for and after I was sexually harassed I felt because I rejected his advances I would not be given fair performance appraisals, fair pay increases, and deprived of equal employment opportunities. On the other hand, if I did nothing this would go against my personal core values and morals. I was tormented about what to do.

I started searching for an attorney that I could talk to about my situation and I found the website of Winer, McKenna & Burritt. I read the many testimonials of their clients and their success records and I was immediately drawn to calling them.

I first spoke to Claudia Glade, Intake Coordinator, and explained my situation. Claudia was so understanding and I immediately felt comfortable talking with her. She then made an appointment for me to come to their office in just a few days. After my discussion with Claudia I knew I was doing the right thing and I resigned from my position.

I then met with Shawn Tillis, Attorney, and I was very at ease talking with Shawn. Shawn explained the challenges that I might face with my case and provided me with exceptional recommendations of what I needed to do to prepare for mediation or even possibly a jury trial. I was extremely confident because I felt I would be well prepared for any step we might face and I felt safe and secure about my decision and this once again, I felt confident that I was making the right decision.

Every time I would call their office with a question or a concern at no time did they make me feel as though my case was not important. I actually felt as though I had an Angel on my shoulders and they provided me with great relief knowing that they were on my side and this was instrumental in my surviving this ordeal.

After a few months we chose to go to mediation and while waiting for mediation my financial situation became dire. I had not started working due to my health and I had no other option but to file for unemployment benefits. I had to complete the claim form to open up my claim so I called Shawn and he instructed me on what to do. My unemployment benefits were denied, we appealed the decision and I had to attend a hearing with the Employment Development Department. John Winer represented me in the appeal hearing and due to the excellent representation John provided in the hearing, the decision was reversed and I was then awarded unemployment benefits.

John Winer, Attorney, took over my case and in order to prepare for mediation John needed to talk with me and I lived over three hours away from their office. In order to accommodate me so I would not have to drive to their office, John scheduled a Skype call.

During mediation I was very happy with the representation I was provided my John Winer. We were able to settle my case during mediation and I felt some justice was served. There is absolutely no way I would have survived such a horrible ordeal without everyone at Winer, McKenna & Burritt.

Even after my case had been settled for nine months, I called their office to ask for advice on a situation and once again, I was given the same exceptional treatment. Within one day John Winer took over and provided me with assistance in how to handle this situation.

I would highly recommend Winer, McKenna & Burritt.
