Best lawyer I’ve ever dealt with. Handled a serious sexual harassment case and got big time results. Thank you so much. Very responsive and caring. Great staff.

Great work. Honestly, best lawyer I've ever run into. Ran into him socially and he took time to meet with me in his office and signed me up. Wrapped up the case quickly and cost effectively.

Greatest Lawyer in TN
He spent 3 years in a hard fought case, and ultimately we prevailed and won big. I am so happy. Things got bleak for a while, because the Court process was so long. But he kept his head down and kept working.

I usually don't like lawyers, but ...
Brian Winfrey is extremely knowledgable in employment law, and I had great results. I must admit, I was concerned because he looked young; however, his experience in this area is solid. He worked my case to exhaustion and was extremely responsive to my calls and concerns ... and I tend to be a bit demanding. Good work, Attorney Winfrey. By the way, the case settled for a larger amount than I could have ever hoped for. However, he is really no-nonsense and direct.

Mr. Winfrey was both knowledgeable and informative. He treats every case as if it's a million dollar case. He worked often on the weekends, and kept me abreast on everything regarding my case. Mr. Winfrey did not sugar coat anything, but gave me straight, honest answers. If you ever need a lawyer, I would most DEFINITELY recommend him.

Did not return calls
Initially, Brian called back right away but after I sent him my information he then became difficult to get in touch with and did not return my call. If he didn't want to take my case, he should have called me back to tell me. I think that says a lot about the attorney.
