S. Robert Winer

S. Robert Winer, March 5, 1920 – January 11, 2019

It is with sadness that Winer and Bennett, LLP learned of the loss of one of its founding partners, S. Robert Winer, who died on January 11, 2019. Mr. Winer was 98 years old. Bob started the first incarnation of what is now Winer and Bennett, LLP in 1957 with George Nelson and J. Albert Lynch. The firm has been located in its present location at 111 Concord Street in Nashua since 1976.

Robert Winer grew up in Nashua, the son of the owners of a shoe store on Main Street in Nashua during the Great Depression. He was educated in Nashua schools graduating at age 16 from Nashua High School class of 1935. Bob graduated from UNH in 1939 and started his law studies at Boston University Law School before World War II intervened, graduating from Harvard Law School after the end of the War.

First Lieutenant Robert Winer trained as a glider pilot with the Big Red One Division of the U.S. Army and flew his first mission behind enemy lines on D-Day in June of 1944. He earned an air medal of honor with an oak leaf cluster and, near the end of his life, the French Legion of Honor for his service in the liberation of France.

Attorney Winer became a respected member of the New Hampshire Bar and served Nashua area clients in a variety of matters for fifty years. He was active in both civil and municipal organizations during his career and received the Nashua Bar Association Lifetime Achievement Award after his retirement.

The attorneys and staff at Winer and Bennett, LLP owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Winer. His collegiality, vision and dedication to the interests of his clients set the example for the continued commitment to professionalism and service at Winer and Bennett, LLP. We, the current stewards of those high standards, salute Bob Winer of the Greatest Generation for his courage, sacrifice and service both at war and here at home.

One of the most experienced and successful law firms in southern New Hampshire

The attorneys of Winer and Bennett pride themselves on providing effective and personable legal counsel in matters including Personal Injury, such as Car and Motorcycle Accidents, Slip and Falls, Wrongful Death, as well as a host of other practice areas including Estate Planning and Probate, Civil Litigation, Family Law and Divorce, Workers’ Compensation, Criminal Defense, Condominium Law and Real Estate matters.

Personal Injury

Your objective, as the law provides, is to be fairly compensated for what someone has caused you.

Under New Hampshire law, a person who is injured by the wrongful conduct of another is to receive “full, fair and adequate” compensation for their losses and harms. But that doesn’t just happen. And what is “full, fair and adequate” shouldn’t be the decision of the party who has to pay. A personal injury claim is a complicated, risky and highly adversarial process. On one side is a liability insurance company with enormous resources. It is in their business interest to do whatever they can to minimize their cost. On the other side is the injured party who must have the support and backup required to receive fair payment for what he or she had suffered. The law firm of Winer and Bennett, LLP has been successfully fighting those fights for our clients at every level of the New Hampshire court system for over 60 years. We take great pride in helping others, and we’re convinced that making wrongdoers accountable for their actions makes our society a safer place for all of us.

Workers’ Compensation

Injured workers have protections under New Hampshire law. Often, however, those protections are not provided without the help of a knowledgeable and experienced advocate. The lawyers at Winer and Bennett, LLP have been fighting for injured workers for over 30 years. They know how it works and what it takes to win. Payment for their services to injured workers is not due until and unless there is a successful recovery

Family Law & Divorce

The breakdown of a marriage is a difficult life experience, and the role of a lawyer in such cases is complex. At Winer and Bennett, LLP, we consider it our fundamental objective in these matters to work with the opponent and/or the court system to achieve the best results for the client at the most reasonable cost. We believe that lawyer’s first approach should be as a problem solver, because the best and most cost-effective resolution is usually by voluntary agreement. However, when settlement simply isn’t a viable option, we will provide the thorough and no-nonsense advocacy required to successfully present the case to a judge.

Winer and Bennett’s family law attorneys have many decades of experience in all facets of family law, including: divorce, property distribution, alimony, child custody, child support, mediation. Our lawyers have counseled and advocated many hundreds of cases involving such family matters. With over 65 years of combined family law experience, the lawyers of Winer and Bennett offer an understanding of the difficulties involved in the process with the skill and experience to forcefully advocate for the client’s best interests.

Insurance Recovery

The lack of attention to insurance assets can result in not having the coverage you need or in a failure to get the full measure of financial security that you are owed.

Your insurance policies are a valuable business or personal asset just as surely as your real estate, equipment or even cash. Too often, however, after the initial expenditure to purchase the policies, they are filed away, ignored and sometimes even forgotten. When crisis hits in the form of property loss or a third party claim, your insurance is often the single most important bulwark against very serious losses.

Estate Planning and Probate
