  • A complete and swift dismissal

    I don't write reviews, yet I feel I need to put this somewhere some poor, lost soul may actually see it, because choosing an attorney is a tough decision. Mr. Winter is a clear and concise communicator in person and in the courtroom. His demeanor and expertise were a constant reassurance during the whole process and his efforts facilitated a complete and swift dismissal of my case. A reasonable, fair, and conscientious attorney, to say he comes highly recommended is an understatement. I am very thankful I was lucky enough to be referred to him. If you are as nervous as I was and you have a million doubts, just give him a call and talk to him. Thanks again Jared! Read On
