Financial Resources Committee Chair, Elected 2017
Bill Winters was born in Malvern, Pennsylvania, and grew up in the Tampa Bay area. He is a graduate of the University of Florida, where he received both his bachelor’s and his J.D. As a student, Bill planned on studying to be a tax attorney, however, after learning more about the law and experiencing the thrill of litigation, he turned his focus to personal injury law. Bill has never looked back and is still excited to practice personal injury law and help injured parties find justice through the civil court system.
Bill and Marc Yonker founded Winters & Yonker in 2001 to provide a more personal experience for those who have been harmed or injured. Bill and Marc have crafted a unique, supportive environment at Winters & Yonker—one that always keeps the best interests of the clients in mind. With over 30 years of legal experience and thousands of cases under his belt, Bill has taken the skills he learned at a large personal injury firm and translated them into the client-friendly model that is on display at Winters & Yonker.
In addition to serving the community through the firm, Bill is passionate about giving back to the local community. He volunteers with the Boys and Girls Club of Tampa and serves on their board of directors. In addition to his work with the Boys and Girls Club, Bill also partners with Metropolitan Ministries in Tampa during the holidays.
He and his wife Laurie have two boys, Jeffrey (’19) and Jackson (’23).
