Knowledgeable. Aggressive. Results.
I hired Drew to help resolve a family dispute. The other party was being very difficult and mean. Drew took an aggressive approach to immediately stop the other party from some of their illegal actions and create a balance. Drew was always available to us, showed a great understanding of the law and the legal procedures, and was very understanding and encouraging. Drew is a fine attorney and I would hire him any time there is a dispute in the future. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for real results.

Key asset to our team
We are grateful to have Drew as our legal counsel since 2014. Drew always sincerely listened to our problems, did preliminary research and provided valuable advice. During our consultations, we received detailed analysis of the issue and what action steps we should take moving forward. As a small business owner, it is a godsend to have someone as compassionate as Drew. He is trustworthy and is truly invested in our success. We continue to work with him on various projects and see him as a key asset to our team.

Fantastic Lawyer - Can trust both his word and his work product.
Drew has helped me with an on-going property dispute and has been absolutely amazing to work with. Over the last year, my case has become increasingly complex (and stressful). Throughout I've been continually impressed by his ability to efficiently guide us. This has shown both his breadth/depth of legal knowledge and also his ability to quickly assess an unknown. While working with Drew, it is also very clear that his main priority is to help me find a resolution. Given the frustrations of my legal dispute, I have found it to be such a relief to have a kind, accountable, and clever lawyer by my side. I would hire Drew again in a heartbeat. Definitely can trust both his word and his work product.

Smart and understanding
Drew helped me with a very tricky, drawn-out landlord issue in SF. He was always sharp in understanding all the angles and clearly laid out our options in a way that we could easily grasp and make the right decision. He was very understanding as to our situation and what we could/couldn't do and set up every negotiation and interaction with opposing counsel in a way that ensured our best interests. Whenever he wasn't absolutely certain about something, he effectively found the top expert in his network and got the additional advice we needed. I'd trust Him with any case.

Knowledgeable and nice!
I consulted with Drew on a housing contract. He offered perspective to protect me as a landlord and helped me understand the intricacies of liability related issues. All around great guy. Would not hesitate to reach out to him again.

Clear, appropriate, direct advice
I met Drew as part of his volunteer work at the San Mateo Law Library. At that time I was self-representing myself in a larger lawsuit and had done extensive research for my case. Drew quickly helped me focused on the relevant points and highlighted some risks I had not seen. His opinions were very useful and practical.

Knowledgable and friendly professional
Drew advised me on an insurance claims issue. Not only was he honest in explaining that it would not be wise to pursue litigation, he still went out of his way to give me personal advice and references on how to address my insurance issue (in my case, small claims court). He was very friendly and responsive, and I am sure he would be as brilliant a litigation attorney as he was a generous and intelligent source of advice.

Easy to work with, helpful, and honest.
Much like Denzel Washington says in Philadelphia "explain to me like I'm a four year old", Andrew walked me through a difficult (and somewhat scary) case. He knocked out each alternative and what I was to look forward to. This was my first big/scary legal experience and he allayed many of my fears right off the bat, and answered the myriad questions I had, and even waited for me to ask more once I had exhausted them. He was patient for this newbie and gave very detailed explanations. He worked fast when necessary, and stood back to let me evaluate my options as well. No pressure, just down-to-earth help.

Reliable, Quality Legal Support
Mr. Winghart was truly a pleasure to work with and he efficiently handled all of my legal needs. Andrew advised me of my various options and walked me through the potential reactions to each of those directions. His direction empowered me with the necessary insight to make an informed decision in terms of my legal action. My business affairs were straightened out and I quickly received the money I was due. Throughout the legal process I was kept abreast of any developments with friendly and informative phone calls / emails from Andrew. I highly recommend his services.

Great experience
I had an breach of contract case. I looked up attorneys on yelp. Andrew Winghart came up with very high rating and great reviews. I set up an appointment with Drew. We went over the documents I had, and talked about options. Drew was very honest about the potential outcomes and costs. In the end, I decided not to pursue the case. Drew was very understanding. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience.

Intellectual Property Settlement
As someone seeking legal representation for the first time, I felt assured when Drew meticulously walked me through all available options. Once I decided on the course of action, Drew successfully worked out a settlement with the plaintiff that was to the satisfaction and protection of all parties concerned. In particular, I recommend Drew for his knowledge and trustworthiness.

Satisfied Client
When my boyfriend and I sought out Mr. Winghart's assistance, we had never before dealt with a lawyer and were frankly quite worried about the prospect of being named in a lawsuit. As college students, the prospect of hiring a lawyer is daunting for financial reasons as well, and this led to some serious stress. Mr. Winghart, however, was very kind, considerate of our financial needs, and candid in his advice on how to proceed. He was knowledgeable and informed without being pretentious or overwhelming. Although we have yet to receive notice on the results or dismissal of our case, I am confident that, regardless of how we proceed, Mr. Winghart will be able to assist us in handling whatever processes are necessary.

An excellent attorney
Drew represented me in a contract with a corporation for over one year. I was emotionally distraught by the actions taken against me by that corporation. In his communications with me Drew was always calm and kind and legally wise in his actions with the corporation. He showed me respect and guided me in understanding the legality and practicality of my situations. He grounded me in my expectations while at the same time strategically pushing my legal demands against the corporation. He also worked expeditiously. I have no doubt that the success that we achieved would not have occurred without Drew's wise representation. I have confidently recommended Drew to other people.

Honest Attorney who actually cares about his clients!
Right from the start, Attorney Drew Winghart impressed me with his efficient, professional manner - an approach that not only inspired confidence about my case, but generated the results we were looking for. We needed an effective solution to the problem of defending a suit from a major corporation. By obtaining Attorney Winghart, I have been able to mitigate my risk of the exploitation of “Big Company” corporation.
