I was arrested for a first-time DUI and I live out of state. Dave was great through the entire process- he got everything thrown out except one conviction for improper lane change. I did not have to return to Illinois for a court appearance. Close attorney friends in IL--neither practice criminal law-- both recommended Dave.
He explained everything in detail and was supportive, but did not sugar coat things. I am sure I drove him crazy with questions, especially until the police report arrived noting my BAC was well below .05, but he was responsive and patient the whole time. And while encouraging , Dave prepared me for a possible unfavorable outcome even with the low BAC. He's an honest, down to earth guy - and I've heard good things about his brother also . Highly recommend Winer & Winer.

This was a confusing and difficult process for the lifting of a discretionary revocation due to a 30 year old DUI. I had been a licensed driver in a different state during those 30 years. Due to the National Driver Registry, I was denied a renewal in my home state at my last renewal due to the presence of an IL hold. I am convinced that his expertise enabled me to shorten the time required to solve this problem and his experience in the steps that were needed and the knowledge of the "surprising unknowns" of the process helped guide me to a successful conclusion of having my revocation lifted. In addition, David's demeanor and follow-thru were everything I could possibly expect. David never hesitated to respond to questions and his help was invaluable in walking me through the Secretary of State's requirements.

David went above and beyond to make sure nothing was missed when it came to little details about my case. There were times beforehand that I was worried but he always reassured me that we had a good case. This is an experience that I will never forget and I will always recommend the Winer law office to anyone who will be in need in the future.

I was stopped by a trooper for speeding while taking my son to a ER and was given a Class B misdemeanor ticket. My job depends on my driver's license and my background check and this ticket could have ruined my life. After 3 agonizing days of feeling desperate, I found this website and David. His words on the phone eased my mind right away knowing I found someone who will help me. Each day of waiting for trial was agony on it's own and David was able to push the court date 15 days earlier so this could be done with. On the day of the court, many people also had lawyers but David stood out with his posture, confidence and overall appearance. While some lawyers were putting their ties on while waiting on the judge, David was already standing at the prosecutor's desk with my paperwork. He presented my case to the prosecutor and in less than 5 minutes worked out a plea that was overwhelmingly in my favor. We were 2nd in a row to see the judge and once up in front of the judge, we were done in under a minute. David walked me to the clerk's office where I settled the financial end of the plea and that was it. He walked me to the front door and I was home free. From the moment we met in the main lobby to leaving the building at the end, David led the way in everything, he checked me in, talked to the prosecutor, stood with me in front of judge, made sure afterwards that proper plea is entered and walked me to clerk and to exit. As nervous and anxious as I was prior to meeting David, he took away all of that soon as we walked in, he took ownership of everything and all I had to do was follow his lead and watch a true professional at work. He is very personable, confident, professional and very, very good at his job. David had everyone's respect, it was visible, from the deputy in charge of security to court personell, even the judge. I won't think twice to recommend David Winer to anyone who needs help in traffic court. Illinois is a very strict state with heavy fines, even jail time for speeding, don't take chances to have your life ruined because you made a mistake. Most people don't know this, including me. David Winer helped me go on with my life by making this go away almost painlessly. Thank you David.

Looking for a diligent, focused, no-nonsense lawyer who treats each case as if his own life depended on it? You'd be hard-pressed to find one who understands the ramifications and importance of legally protecting a client who faces serious life-altering consequences of multiple DUI convictions.
Though the circumstances of my case looked very dire and made me look worst than I am, Winer alerted me to the nuances of the law, devised a damage-control plan that had me going to drug and alcohol counseling even before I was to be sentenced, had me present personal and professional background material and had associates write character profiles.
Because of his diligent work, my sentence was reduced. I still had a fine, court costs and other conditions to meet, but they were far better than what I would have had to do otherwise. I've learned a lot from this experience and I owe it to a dedicated lawyer who also is a good teacher.
I'd highly recommend David Winer to anyone who needs a DUI/traffic lawyer.

In August, 2014 I was found guilty. My license was revoked for 5 years. Lowest point in my life. I was devastated! David was recommended to me as one of the best DUI lawyers. After one year of revocation I could attempt to obtain a RDP. I was hopeful but prepared for the worst. He didn't sugar coat anything which at first scared me. What it actually did was make me stronger. He told me what I needed to do step by step. I followed his instructions step by step.
To make a very long story short, we won! He was there for me when ever I needed him, returned all calls promptly whether from his office or from his car. I felt that he truly cared about me as a human being not just a pay check. I encourage anyone needing criminal defense with his expertise to contact David. There is never a guarantee but if you want the best chance to win, He is it.

I had the honor of having David Winer represent me in two cases. (First case was for Public intoxication/battery and my second case was for a DUI charge) Both cases were given probation, community service, classes, fines, etc..
All that I can happily deal with thanks to my lawyer.
David is down to earth, dedicated, reliable and an honorable gentlemen. He is a fighter with every case that he takes on. David 's heart is truly in his work and with the clients that he represents. This is not something you find in very many lawyers. I was extremely pleased with my outcome in both cases. If your looking for an incredible lawyer that will stand beside you and get the job done right, then look no further David Winer is the one you want!
