Practice areas
  1. Litigation
    45%
    Civil & criminal litigation; from constitutional rights and catastrophic loss claims, to consumer fraud or class C misdemeanors, if a person has been wronged, I believe the law ought to provide a remedy, and if it doesn't on it's face, I'll do my best to persuade a judge and/or jury to craft one.

  2. Car accident
    25%
    If some fool hurts an innocent because they aren't playing by the rules the rest of us are expected to, they don't get a pass because it was "an accident." They get served with a lawsuit. That's the way it ought to be.

    22 years

  3. Speeding and traffic ticket
    20%
    My traffic ticket team works to resolve citations through deferred disposition. Our process rarely requires court attendance or an office visit. Everything is done online and via phone. We strive for affordability, convenience, and great results!

  4. Criminal defense
    5%
    I believe in holding the state to its onerous burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. That means filing motions to suppress and fighting the prosecution at every turn.

    22 years

  5. Wrongful death
    5%
    Losing a loved one due to another's negligence is heartbreaking and anger-inducing. You need a representative who is both understanding and sympathetic towards your family, while uncompromising calculating, and relentless towards the responsible party. Not only do we offer aggressive litigation services, but we also have invaluable experience dealing with complex estate matters in probate court.

A LAWYER YOU CAN RELY ON.
A lawyer owes to a client allegiance, learning, skill, and industry.
 
I take this seriously.
 
I know I owe my clients the highest duty of loyalty.
 
I believe this means they are entitled to unvarnished and unembellished communication.
 
I believe this means they are entitled to transparent billing in non-contingent fee arrangements and a clear accounting of contingent fees and costs.
 
I believe this means they are entitled to rely on me to confront their legal adversaries with every tool at the ethical litigator’s disposal.
 
This informs my practice of law.
 
If that's what you're looking for in a lawyer, why not get in touch?

Attorney you can trust
I highly recommend Winocour law if you are ever in an auto accident. I was first introduced to Jonathon Winocour about 20 years ago when my sister was hit by a drunk driver. He handled her case against him. Jonathon Winocour won my sister the full settlement. A couple years later I was in an auto accident which lead to serious spinal injury. Against all odds fighting insurance companies and adjusters, Jonathan Winocour prevailed and got the full settlement amount without even having to go to court. I was very impressed and grateful for his genius. He is a very personable and honest. He gives it to you straight, and he has your best interest at the forefront always! About ten years later I was involved in a second auto accident which cause more spinal injuries. Having my preexisting conditions, Jonathan had to prove this new accident had exacerbated my injuries. This was extremely difficult but not impossible for Winocour Law! He made the whole stressful process extremely smooth and easy for me. I knew I was in good hands and trusted Winocour Law to help me. Again, he won the settlement without going to court. I would highly recommend Winocour Law to friends and family! In fact, I have already done so. I guarantee if I am ever in need of legal counsel again, Winocour Law will be the first and only attorney I will call!

I was very happy with the whole process of getting a settlement from a not-at-fault car accident. The paralegal was extremely helpful during the 16 month process--always answering my questions. Mr. Winocour was friendly & upfront. I would reccommend them.

Easy to work with, Great results!
I had two old tickets I forgot about that entered Warrant Status. I called Winocour and someone named Bre answered the phone. She was very polite and answered all of my questions and outlined the entire process. Winocour got my warrants lifted very quickly. Though all I was hoping for was a reduction in fines, Winocour got my tickets 100% dismissed. I didn't have to show up to court or do anything. I'm beyond thrilled.

The best experience for speeding ticket
I live in California and was travelling to Dallas. I was cited by a police officer for speeding 40 over the limit in Dallas. This was my very first time hiring an attorney, I saw the reviews of Winocour and contacted them. Within a few minutes, I got an email reply with a form to fill and the actual procedure to hire them. After I filled the form which was given to me, I was immediately contacted via phone and was explained how everything works. I was also informed that I would be contacted regularly via email with my case updates. I was also told that possibly my ticket would be taken off my record. Fingers crossed! Till now, Winocour's office handled my case exceptionally well. I Will write another review with my final outcome and the full experience.

Family LAw
I went to see Jonathan, about my divorce. I found him to be very helpful very patient, very thorough when discussing my situation. Jonathan prepared me for the possible, best and worst case scenarios. Other attorney's made me feel rushed, and not listened to. Jonathan is very genuine and cares about the outcome for his clients and not just about his wallet. His office staff are very friendly and professional. Due to his advise and counsel my situation has drastically improved for all involved and I cannot recommend this guy and his associates enough. I know where to go if I need some legal help in the future. Many Thanks!

Thankful to Mr. Winocour and his staff for helping after my auto accident!
Mr. Winocour and his staff were all very helpful, patient and understanding throughout my case. I was involved in a serious auto accident, and desperately needed someone to help with financial recovery. The other driver was underinsured, and there were other factors that made the case more complicated than it initially appeared on the surface. Communication was timely, and they always took the time to fully explain what was going on and where we were in the process. Mr. Winocour is very knowledgeable, and did a great job of negotiating with the insurance companies, hospitals, doctors, etc. I'm very pleased with the settlement he was able to get for me. I highly recommend Winocour Law!

They don't take your money, they give you back your life!!
In September of 2014 my house was destroyed by a drunk driver. Mr. Winoccour helped me recover the maximum amount allowed, all without me ever having to step into a courtroom. He also helped me clear up some tickets so I could reinstate my DL. He's fair, honest, driven, compassionate, and intelligent. He and his staff work diligently to keep you informed while they kick butt in court for YOU! If you want the best representation, call Winoccour Law... They don't take your money, THEY GIVE YOU BACK YOUR LIFE!!

One of The Best
I would recommend this law firm to anyone that is looking for a law firm that is very reasonable, fair through and follows through and handles it"s business. I had a total of 15 tickets that this law firm got 13 of those tickets DISMISSED. They are presently working on the remaining 2 tickets at this time, and I am very confident they will be successful in getting those handled fairly also. Great people to work with, and what they charged me to provide their legal service to me was more than reasonable.They are one of "The Best" at handling Traffic Ticket issues by far.

Great Attorney and one of the best that I've worked with!
First and foremost I would like to say that Jonathan and his staff provided excellent service from start to finish! One must understand that the legal process (for any case) can sometimes be long and drawn out. My case took 2 years to finish which is completely fine with me. That being said, Jonathan and his staff always kept me in the loop, were clear on every step of the process, and always provided me with the best possible advice/options available. His staff did do most of the communicating/managing of my case during the initial phase and they were phenomenal! When Jonathan's time came to represent me in person he was the best that I had seen thus far! He was passionate, very vocal, really took a personal approach, and was just an overall meticulous craftsman of his trade in my experience with him! He was great and I would definitely refer him to anyone for legal advice and representation!

Money Well Spent
I hired the firm to handle 3 traffic warrants I had from Hickory Creek, TX. They prepared me from the beginning of the different possible outcomes for my tickets. They were able to get one dismissed !! The funds were due to the court pretty quickly and they even went the extra mile by filing a motion to extend my due date. I will definitely use them in the future !

Best Choice I could have made!
We initially approached this law firm due to having been issued citations by the City of Garland Texas for violations on a commercial property that we own. These citations ranged from parking lot striping issues, parking issues, asphalt used to improve a surface without permits, and so on. We felt that this law firm was very familiar and seemed confident that they could and would represent our interests to the best of their abilities. We went to court on a few occasions and Mr. Winocour showed us that he was very well qualified and although this city's district attorney was very biased and initially completely unwilling to reduce or settle these citations, at the end Mr. Winocour prevailed and got us a sweet deal. God Bless and feel rest assured that if you are in trouble you really and truly couldn't be in better hands than with this professional and dedicated team on your side! David S.

Best Attorney in DFW!!!!!
My son recently had some legal issues involving illegal possession of a weapon. He is only 17. Of course, as a mother the last thing you want to hear is that your child might be facing a criminal record that he will have to explain for the rest of his life. He made a mistake and unfortunately the criminal justice system isn't always forgiving. This is why I am so happy to recommend Winocour Law to anyone who has any issues with the law. Not only did Jonathan Winocour appear personally on my son's case, he remained in constant communication with me and let me know all the possible outcomes so that I could prepare myself for what's to come. Well, I received great news today that my son will not be receiving probation, but instead, will be required to pay a small fine to the court, take a gun safety course, and will be on a deferral agreement with the charge disappearing from his record after six months of no more run-ins with the law. While I was hoping for this result, I certainly could not have anticipated it and I have nothing but great things to say about this firm. My son has gotten back into school and has completely turned his life around. This charge could have had severe impact on his future and thanks to Winocour Law he can focus on getting good grades in school and picking a decent college without having to worry if he will be turned away from a job in the future for something he did when he was only 17. Thank you so much, Winocour Law! You truly are an amazing firm!
