    I endorse this lawyer. What I admire most about attorney Winchell is that he really listens for what is in his potential client's best interest. Putting the client's interests ahead of his own delivers results! He works with other colleagues all over the country, as needed to properly serve consumers in debt. Thank you for your good work on our community.
