Andrew is the best!
My 21 year old daughter has been injured by the negligence of a restaurant. Her injuries were grave and life treathing. She has now life long health issues as the result of these injuries. We've hired Andrew to sue for damages.Through all our ordeal caring for our daughter and through her painfull healing process, Andrew has been very caring and sensitive to my daughter needs. At the same time he has been hard working and tough when needed, in my daughter's behalf. Never anything less than highly professional. Because of Andrew's efforts, focuse, wit, and hard work, she has received the highest possible settlement in her case. This has made it possible for her attend to her future medical care as new technology emerges. We can only say that Mr. Andrew Winston gave our daughter back her dignity and "life" so to speak.We recommend him highly, he is the best!!

Best Attorney
I originally contacted Mr. Andrew Winston about a car accident I had 8 years ago. He was the ONLY attorney who scheduled time for me. Ultimately, he wasn’t able to assist me in that case. But I was so grateful for his knowledge, kindness, and professionalism. I appreciated the time he took in meeting with me. I had an odd car accident in the summer of 2022. Ms. Madeleine Mannello represented me in the case. I expected a much smaller settlement. They under-promised, but over delivered! Ms. Mannello went above and beyond by negotiating my medical bills. Her actions benefited me greatly so I was able to retain more of my settlement. I don’t think any other law firm would negotiate one’s medical bills. I am so grateful she was my attorney!!! Their whole team is amazing! Linda, Valentina, and Jennifer are all proactive, kind, and communicative. If you are in search of an aggressive law firm, who goes above and beyond, then reach out to Winston Law Firm! I would give them 10 Stars if I could!

Hands-down the BEST law firm in Florida!
Andrew and his lawyers and team of staff became my true "partners" in a long, hard-fought litigation. I was badly hurt when I was hit on my motorcycle by a drunk driver. Lawlor Winston got me enough money to take care of myself for the rest of my life. Thanks!
