Testimonial from a psychiatrist expert witness
“Over the last ten years I’ve had the privilege of acting as an expert witness in a number of significant cases for Winer, Burritt and Scott, LLP. As a psychiatrist who has published numerous articles and books on the subjects of psychological trauma, professional sexual abuse and work place sexual harassment, I am often called upon to consult on legal cases involving these difficult issues.
I’ve had the opportunity to work on cases with some of the most prominent attorneys in America, and I can honestly say that none can compare with John Winer when it comes to understanding physical and psychological trauma and conveying the devastating effects of trauma to a jury.
Whether a case stems from physical and emotional distress, damages following an accident which causes a life changing physical injury or whether the case stems from purely psychological abuse, I am always impressed by the highly professional and effective way in which Winer, Burritt and Scott, LLP represents its clients.
After testifying on behalf of Mr. Winer’s clients at trial and watching his command of the complex psychological and legal issues in the case, I have no hesitancy recommending the law firm whenever an attorney, colleague, patient or friend asks for a referral for a trial attorney who understands psychological trauma and emotional distress and life-altering changes stemming from a severe physical injury.”
