  • Stephen Leonard Winig

    I endorse this lawyer. I just finished litigating a case with John and found him to be professional, courteous and polite, as well as a strong advocate for his client. Thanks to his efforts we were able to settle the case and save both of our clients a huge amount of money and aggravation.
