The legal system is trying on any client. Often a client lacks the fortitude to go to court for months until a judge or jury renders a verdict in their case. They want to give up and believe it is impossible. We applaud those with the courage to see the case to trial and appreciate those who share their journey.


Dear Mr. Wisner,

I wanted to thank you for all your assistance and success as my lawyer. Though my actions reflected a man of poor choices, you persevered for my sake. I wanted to thank you for enabling me to have a second chance to show that I am a responsible, dedicated man and that I can overcome alcoholism. In spite of that you have my gratitude for believing in me and frankly keeping me out of jail. I have chosen to live a different path, instead of throwing my life down the drain. I understand the consequences of being an alcoholic behind the wheel and I am determined that this will never happen again and I look forward to a new start in life.

Much appreciation,


Dear Attorney Wisner:

To simply say thank you, absolutely never seems to be adequate, no matter how sincerely that expression of gratitude is felt. Regardless, I do appreciate the time and effort you and your staff provided to my son. He was essentially alone and so far away from home. I know no one in Rochester. It was through the efforts of a childhood friend, a New York City Attorney that allowed me to contact your office. You called me back immediately and I thank you.

Unfortunately my "only son, my child" found himself falsely accused of legal crimes which could have distroyed his potential for a successful future and even his life. It is because of your expertise and your very kind considerations that my son will be allowed to pursue his dreams. He still has a chance for a promising future. Thank you.

With most sincere respect,
DB, M.D.


Dear Mr. Wisner,

I want to thank you for accepting me as your client. I feel like if I did not have you as a lawyer things would not have gone the way they did. I appreciate your understanding and diligence with my case. I am happy to refer anyone I know who may need a lawyer to you.

Thank you again and I hope that you continue to have success with your business.
