About this pro

Our firm prides itself on providing one-on-one legal counsel to its clients--and attorneys must devote personal attention to every client to maximize recovery and compensation.  This personalized approach emphasizes strong relationships with our clients and taking the time to listen to their unique concerns.

Having spent a substantial part of my legal career with a nationally recognized trial defense firm, I defended property owners, management companies, trucking companies, product manufacturers, and the largest insurance companies in the world. I enjoy advocating for victims by now using my insight and knowledge of the inner workings of insurance companies’ claims evaluation procedures and extensive experience with defense tactics and techniques to pursue justice and protect the rights of individuals and families injured or killed.

    Joshua is great. He really cares for his clients. Even if he can’t take your case he will still give you advice on how you should handle the situation. I’m glad to have him on my team

  • Alissa

    Joshua helped explain the process and was very communicative to me on my case. It didn't matter the time or the place, Mr. Winegar would always drop what he was doing if he could and gave me his complete attention and help. I was always kept up to date of my case. He always kept me updated on my case and I never felt that I was by myself. I always thought I had someone in my team and on my side being a voice for me. He helped me get a very great result and he is someone I recommend highly if you need a true goodhearted soul who will represent you the way you deserve!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

There is an initial client consultation which is free and we conduct a thorough intake to learn all the facts surrounding the incident and the damages and injuries sustained.  Addressing the medical needs and helping clients get the medical attention they need is first and foremost.

After we identify the responsible parties, we aggressively pursue settlement negotiations to resolve the case without litigation. However, if the case cannot be settled without litigation, we will file a lawsuit to pursue recovery.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I went to the University of Florida for undergrad and the #1 ranked law school in Florida at the University of Florida Levin College of Law. 

Before founding his law firm, Attorney Winegar began his legal career with a nationally recognized trial defense firm, where he defended property owners, management companies, trucking companies, product manufacturers, and the largest insurance companies in the world.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Contingency fee basis (33.3%). We work on a contingency-fee basis — we don’t get paid unless you win — so that you can afford to hire an excellent attorney to protect your interests.

Aside from eliminating any up-front costs, working on a contingency fee also incentivizes the attorney to recover the most compensation possible on your behalf. 

Our pay is a percentage of the compensation you recover on your behalf, so you never have to worry about our firm advising you to take an inadequate settlement offer.

We recover only if you recover. If there is no recovery, no costs or fees

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Selected to be a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum serving as sole counsel in a motorcycle crash in which I successfully got a settlement of more than $1 million for a client.

I was also recognized in 2019 as “Best Personal Injury Lawyers in West Palm Beach” by Expertise who scored personal injury lawyers on over 25 variables across five categories.

I was also selected to The National Trial Lawyers top 40 under 40 – Civil Plaintiff. 


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Make sure you speak to an attorney. A lot of firms will give you a paralegal or case manager. The advertising "mills" will hardly ever have an attorney for you to speak with.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

How often is the firm updating you?

How involved are you in the decision-making process?

Will you feel like a number or an actual client that the firm cares about?

Are you chasing down the firm for information or are they constantly keeping you involved throughout the process?
