When Tampa injury attorneys Marc Yonker and Bill Winters partnered to found Winters & Yonker, P.A., they were both motivated by the desire to provide access to the kind of personal injury attorney Tampa Bay residents deserve. In founding Winters & Yonker, the duo has ensured that anyone who has been wronged due to an injury or accident will have the support of a tireless advocate dedicated to the service of justice.
Marc Yonker, a personal injury attorney Tampa residents are proud to have on their side, grew up admiring the work of his father’s best friend, a personal injury attorney who worked on behalf of clients in Easton, Pennsylvania, where Marc grew up before relocating to the Tampa Bay Area in Florida.
Prior to founding Winters & Yonker with Bill Winters, Marc worked at a large law firm and came to realize that many of the firm’s clients were in need of much greater support and assistance. This motivated Marc to create a firm capable of providing such a level of support to clients, and he was thus inspired to build a practice of his own from the ground up.
