Whether assisting crime victims as an Assistant U.S. Attorney and state court prosecutor or representing those seriously injured due to negligence or dangerous products, Bill Winingham has always been on the side of those who have suffered from others’ misconduct. His emphasis on civil litigation has evolved to include vehicle accidents, fires and explosions, products liability, and cases against insurance companies for their lack of good faith in settling claims.

Bill has been a member of Indiana’s Judicial Nominating and Qualifications Commission since 2011. This Commission interviews and selects candidates to fill vacancies on the Indiana Court of Appeals and Indiana Supreme Court, and reviews complaints against and filing charges against Indiana judges for judicial misconduct. Bill is also a past chairman and current member of the Board of Directors for the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana Foundation.
