Stephen Mark Winnick
Personal injury Attorney at Watertown, MA
Steve Winnick is a 1972 graduate of the State University of New York at Stony Brook where he was valedictorian of the Political Science Department. He graduated Boston University School of Law in 1975, and after passing the Massachusetts and Florida bars in December, 1975, he hung out a shingle concentrating in civil and criminal litigation; in particular, complex personal injury litigation including medical malpractice, products liability and wrongful death. In addition to litigation Steve’s practice includes a wide array of general practice matters and transactions including real estate and zoning; divorce and other domestic relations; trusts & estates; contracts; business planning; land use development; and environmental law. As an elected member and chairman of the Planning Board of Watertown, Massachusetts he developed specialized knowledge in zoning and municipal law.
Steve is a member of the state bars of Massachusetts and Florida; the federal bars of the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts and Southern District of Florida, and the U.S. Claims Court. Appellate cases he has handled have created new precedent in multiple jurisdictions including Massachusetts and Maine. See e.g., Vicarro v. Milunsky, 406 Mass. 777 (1990) (the landmark Massachusetts decision recognizing a right to recover for “wrongful birth” arising from negligent genetic counseling); and Ouellette v. Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc., 466 A.2d 478 (Me. 1983) (a product liability case brought in the federal district court of Maine on behalf of a Massachusetts resident severely injured in Maine by an accidental gun discharge. The precedent-setting decision of Maine law is the subject of a Maine law review article and is cited nationwide in product liability actions involving the effects of borrowing statutes and long-arm jurisdiction on applicable statutes of limitation).
