    • I recommend David Winer.

    David winer was recommended to me by my other lawyer who I used in court. He told me that David was the best of the best, and that he would be the person to go to if ever wanted to get my license back. I listened to my lawyer and decided to use David as my attorney for my secretary of state hearing. Great choice! I learned that David has very specific ways of doing things, because he knows Exactly how secretary of state hearings work. In other words, David knows which approaches work, and which approaches do not work. If you are in a situation where your license is revoked and you need an attourney to help you get your license back, I highly suggest that you use David winer!

    • I recommend David Winer.

    I spent 5 years working with David Winer. He was my chosen attorney for getting my license fully reinstated. The difference between David and other attorneys is his authenticity as a person. David proved to me that it was important for him to establish a good working relationship. David took an interest in me as a person and really cared about helping me get through very tough times. $ rarely came up with David and to be honest I thought I was going to spend a lot more than I did. At a time when I didn't deserve much respect David looked past my situation and simply wanted to help make a difference. His ability to guide me along through the process was very important in the confidence I needed to get through the Secretary of State meetings. In the end I wasn't sure what was going to happen but David assured me that everything was going to be okay. He was right. I hope I never have to see David again but if I do he will for sure be my attorney. I don't believe there is a more caring, honest, honorable and effective attorney in lake or cook county Illinois.

    • I recommend David Winer.

    I have quite a history with DUI's my license was revoked for 5 years, after 3 years I am allowed to apply for restricted driving permit. I thought for sure I would be denied for the first Secretary of State hearing, but with David's guidance & expertise he clearly explained what all I needed to do. I followed his suggestions & recommendations' to the "T". I was approved for my RDP. I am forever grateful and have already recommended a friend to call him to help him out as well. I would have to say that David is the best in the business, he knows what he is doing! Hopefully I will not have to use him again myself! I suggest him with the highest marks!

    • I recommend David Winer.
    • I hired David 6-12 months ago.
    • David handled my DUI & DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Honestly, I thought I would never get my driver's license back. My case was complex with multiple DUI's. I followed David's advice completely; counseling, evaluation, etc. and 18 months or so later my driving privileges were fully reinstated. Simply stated, David is the best at what he does. I highly recommend him.

    • I recommend David Winer.
    • I hired David 6-12 months ago.
    • David handled my DUI & DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I considered 3 attorneys before making a decision to hire David Winer. David was not the cheapest (that was $2,000) and he wasn't the most expensive (that was $6,000) but he was fair and honest. I was charged with a 2nd offense DUI and it was reduced to reckless driving. When I met with Dave he told me what I could expect, what he thought he could do - and why - and then he did it!
    If you are looking for an attorney who is honest, responsive, and doesn't promise more than he can deliver, then Dave Winer is the attorney you should hire.
    Finding yourself charged with a DUI is a daunting experience. If you are willing to accept responsibility and looking for an attorney who will help you get the best possible result - then hire Dave Winer.
