As an opposing counsel in a rather complicated series of related chapter 11 cases, one being that of an individual and the other a corporation, Bill Winfield was a worthy adversary. Notwithstanding the positions taken between clients he was always civil and professional. As a follow certified specialist he stands for the distinction between those who are and those who are not. I would endorse Bill as counsel.
