    Looking for a diligent, focused, no-nonsense lawyer who treats each case as if his own life depended on it? You'd be hard-pressed to find one who understands the ramifications and importance of legally protecting a client who faces serious life-altering consequences of multiple DUI convictions.
    Though the circumstances of my case looked very dire and made me look worst than I am, Winer alerted me to the nuances of the law, devised a damage-control plan that had me going to drug and alcohol counseling even before I was to be sentenced, had me present personal and professional background material and had associates write character profiles.
    Because of his diligent work, my sentence was reduced. I still had a fine, court costs and other conditions to meet, but they were far better than what I would have had to do otherwise. I've learned a lot from this experience and I owe it to a dedicated lawyer who also is a good teacher.
    I'd highly recommend David Winer to anyone who needs a DUI/traffic lawyer.

    In August, 2014 I was found guilty. My license was revoked for 5 years. Lowest point in my life. I was devastated! David was recommended to me as one of the best DUI lawyers. After one year of revocation I could attempt to obtain a RDP. I was hopeful but prepared for the worst. He didn't sugar coat anything which at first scared me. What it actually did was make me stronger. He told me what I needed to do step by step. I followed his instructions step by step.
    To make a very long story short, we won! He was there for me when ever I needed him, returned all calls promptly whether from his office or from his car. I felt that he truly cared about me as a human being not just a pay check. I encourage anyone needing criminal defense with his expertise to contact David. There is never a guarantee but if you want the best chance to win, He is it.

    I had the honor of having David Winer represent me in two cases. (First case was for Public intoxication/battery and my second case was for a DUI charge) Both cases were given probation, community service, classes, fines, etc..
    All that I can happily deal with thanks to my lawyer.
    David is down to earth, dedicated, reliable and an honorable gentlemen. He is a fighter with every case that he takes on. David 's heart is truly in his work and with the clients that he represents. This is not something you find in very many lawyers. I was extremely pleased with my outcome in both cases. If your looking for an incredible lawyer that will stand beside you and get the job done right, then look no further David Winer is the one you want!

    I feel very privileged to write this recommendation for Attorney David Winer. He is an excellent lawyer. I was facing two similar felony charges --- one in Lake County and the other from another county in IL---these were for financial/check deception related crimes. Attorney Winer not only represented me with the utmost professionalism and skill in my Lake County case, but also communicated with my legal representation in the other county to formulate an effective strategy to deal with both offenses concurrently resulting in a successful and fair disposition of both cases. He not only met all of my expectations, but exceeded them. He gained my full and complete trust. Attorney Winer made certain I was kept informed of each and every development. He stayed in constant contact with me (I was incarcerated) as well as my family to answer any and all questions, and was never too busy to take the calls or see me. His assistant did a superb job as well, answering any questions and making sure concerns were addressed and communicated to Mr. Winer --- regardless if they came from myself or family. Attorney Winer truly cares and I knew I could rely on him for a fair and proportioned disposition of my case. Had it not been for Attorney Winer's exceptional skills and compelling arguments, I believe without a doubt I would be incarcerated at this very moment, quite possibly for many years. I am so grateful, thankful and truly blessed that I retained his services, and he accepted me as a client. In closing, my unsolicited advice is for everyone to obey all of the laws of this great country and not get into trouble. However, in the event you find yourself, as I did, having made a horrible mistake(s) and the worst decisions imaginable, in need of a highly skilled and extraordinary attorney, then do not hesitate to contact David J. Winer.

    We hired David for a felony driving case.. Our situation is tough as we have a family who will suffer financially should my fiancé committed a crime that requires a minimum jail time. David fought for a home confinement sentence until the end. The case dragged on for a while but at every court date, David came calm, well-prepared with supporting documents and information and ready to argue with the prosecutors who wanted nothing less than 18 months of prison time for my fiancé. At sentencing day, we were at awe at how well David argued our case. He was professional and compassionate at the same time however, the judge still sentenced my fiancé to work release which was unattainable because we live in a different county and there will be no transportation available to get around. David immediately filed for a motion to reconsider after the sentencing. On the next court date, David was successfully able to get my fiancé home confinement for the entirety of his sentence. Even though the case dragged on for a while, we are very happy with the result. David is a lawyer who will fight for you until the end. He could've quit at sentencing day but he didn't. Instead, he continued to strive to get us the sentence that would best fit our situation. David is someone you would want to have by your side when you are facing a battle against the law because this battle alone is tough as it is. You want somebody who is well-informed; someone who would take no for an answer. There are plenty of lawyers out there who will tell you that they possess these traits but there are very few who can back it up with experience and resources and will actually follow through even when the case gets tough like ours case did when the prosecutors would not budge at all. If you are looking for a lawyer, we would highly recommend David. We not only plan to hire David in the future but we will also recommend to family and friends.
