I hired John to help with my DUI case. John was incredibly helpful during what was a very stressful and uncertain situation for me. He thoroughly explained the entire process, was very forward with his fees, showed up to court on time, and did an excellent job representing me. After completing all necessary steps, he also helped me with the expungement of my record without a hitch. John communicated with me every step of the way to make sure I was fully aware of what was going on during this lengthy process and I couldn't be more grateful for his help. I wouldn't think twice about hiring him again should the need ever arise!

John was a fantastic lawyer, he helped me win my criminal defense case. I was very impressed and pleased with the job he did. The Criminal offense was for a DUI, with possible jail time. John not only led to a great outcome for me, but also supported me through personal advice. Thank you John very much, highly recommend this attorney!

A friend had recommended John Winicov to me . When a family matter came up and need a lawyer I went to John . I was always given updates on the status of my case and John always returned my phone calls immediately.. John was always honest and upfront . At one point I wanted an emergency court date in front of a family court judge , John could have easily charged me thousands of dollars but instead John advised me to go another route , spending less money and with a positive outcome . I would hire John again for any legal issue .I have sent several friends to John who were equally impressed with John's work
