GOWEN SILVA & WINOGRAD

We strive to prove in every case that our clients are the more reasonable party. This philosophy has earned our lawyers a reputation of credibility, honesty and effectiveness with the courts.

Full Service Law Firm

Gowen Silva & Winograd

Gowen Silva & Winograd PLLC is a full service law firm that represents individuals and small businesses seeking aggressive, yet reasonable approaches to the law.

The firm’s core strengths are the representation of individuals in all aspects of the law including family law, criminal law, personal injury and consumer protection litigation.

We handle cases of all sizes ranging from protecting waiters whose tips were skimmed by restaurant management to representing victims against corporate Goliaths.

One area of law that deeply concerns our firm is the epidemic of fraudulent for-profit education providers. This booming industry takes in billions of dollars from students and from federal and state governments and far too often these “education” providers are only concerned with maximizing profits which results in a lack of education and negligent supervision of students.
