Travis was very helpful in resolving a legal matter for us! He is very knowledgeable and guided us appropriately. We will certainly use his services in the future should a need arise.

Travis handled my Agreed Entry regarding my daughter. We had to establish a new child support order, iron out Parenting Time issues, and settle legal and physical custody questions. Travis was very knowledgeable and answered my questions in a timely manner and even (many times) shared in my frustration at trying to get everything settled fairly and as quickly as possible.

Mr Van Winkle is an excellent attorney. His counsel was superb during my divorce proceedings while keeping me abreast of any sudden developments that occured. During this difficult time in my life, he always listened to my concerns and addressed them accordingly of the best course of action to take. I would recommend Mr Van Winkle to anyone.

Travis helped me in 3 different situations involving guardianship and with an uncontested adoption. He was very helpful. I felt very blessed to have him as my attorney in the situations I needed counsel for. He was very professional and prompt with communicating. I've dealt with lots of different attorneys before from prior matters and he was definitely the best. I highly recommend Travis.

Travis went above and beyond for our case. It was a very complicated situation without many precedents to use for arguments. He spent hours researching and networking with other attorneys to achieve the best possible outcome for us. We won! We got everything we asked for and couldn't be happier.

Mr. Van Winkle did an excellent job. I would highly reccomend him to anyone. He is both hard working and very skilled. I don't think you will find a better attorney.

Mr.Van Winkle was a good listener without verbal nor non verbal judgements. He advised and gave other helps in prevention and or helps to clear debt as my health was beginng to show much wear and my goal was to get out of debt. I did a service without any faults before nor after and paid over one half off before the step I did finally take. This was uncomfortable for me but he made it as simple as could be.
When calling and or meeting with him he gave multiple options to help me select other potential remedies. He also, informed me of Indiana law,court procedings, what to expect prior to and after the proceding. He alerted these and followed through with informations requested by debtors. He spoke of the affects on credit default and clearing. He used proper launguage both verbally and legally. He returned my phone calls seeking clarification and just to discuss-listen to my complaints of shame/guilt that I felt.
He praised my sucess in my repayment history. He was very informative, nonjudmental, he taught/educated me and totored how to proceed. While waiting the length of scheduling months he kept me informed of his stepts. This was helpful to know what was going on on his end while waiting ( in the dark on my side) so to speak. He was not short with me when I asked questions that I am sure hes heard many ,many times . That is what he is getting paid for ? No I think it is more than getting paid for as he extented himself enough that I know it was client care.
He as many legal representives, alike deal with people, good, bad, poor, victims, discord, and those the system sometimes fail, and keeps a realistic attitude. Servant to the people, yes. Was he called to this stressful life work that seldom leaves his mind, I would say yes. I believe there is growth for anyone living and he, and this organization will learn from one another. Hopefully, laws , human care, and this noble , respected profession will serve him and you well. Yes, I have recommended this attorney.

I hired Travis at a difficult point in the life of my family. His knowledge/skill led us through the maze of legal issues. He was able to clearly instruct each step of the process. I have referred to him and will continue to do so.

Travis Van Winkle went above and beyond helping us during a very stressful case that involved family in an inheritance dispute. Travis managed to keep our best interests forefront. At the same time, he managed to keep our communication open with opposing family members, engaged appropriate counsel, overcame obstacles the ineptness of the opposing attorney posed, and ultimately orchestrated coming to a settlement out of court that benefited all and kept our family relations in tack. Legal confrontations are always a very emotional issue, and Travis shone with a gifted ability to keep us focused on the right "legal" path to save us time and money, while at the same time showing how caring he is about our rights and the emotional toll such a situation took us thru. The law is not always in our favor, but Travis was great at communicating what our options were every step of the way, so we could make decisions based on the facts and kept us from losing time and money due to
emotions. We highly recommend Travis to anyone who has to navigate legal issues.

Travis was referred to me by a friend. He proved to be all she promised and more. He was ethical, professional, aggressive and willing to fight for me. I have and will continue to refer him to my friends and family.

Travis is very knowledgeable and put peace in my mind, in more than one case he has worked on for me. Travis is honest and up front about what could happen, and does what is best in your personal case. Travis is very professional in all areas. Travis has helped me in many cases personal and professional. If you want an attorney that will fight for you higher then Travis is the attorney for you. Travis is just not my attorney I consider him a friend.

I first met Travis in 2001. He was at a law firm we used to do our Bankruptcy. When we first met with him he was so caring and knowledgable about what we were going through. The process went so smoothly. I have dealt with other attorneys in the past and they just took my money for every little thing and that is something Travis doesn't do. He is always such a big help and there when you need him. I feel like I trust him in so many ways. Honesty is very important to me and being able to trust and he is that. I again used him in 2006 and 2011 for other cases. He knows what he is talking about. Family law is another part he is very good in. If your looking for an attorney that gives 100% that's Travis . He now has had his own practice for several years and if I ever need an attorney or advice he is the first I call. Since I have known him for several years I fully trust him. He seems to make you feel comfortable about the situation your going through.
