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, Burritt and Scott, 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, Burritt and Scott, 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, Burritt and Scott, LLP for anybody whose been injured as a result of the fault of another. They are the best!
