I was so nervous starting this whole divorce journey and very overwhelmed. As soon as I met with Michelle, I knew everything would be ok. The whole staff is fantastic, especially Kelly who was so patient with me when I would call or email with a bunch of questions or needed confusion cleared up. So happy this case is now closed, however I would highly recommend to anyone who needed a lawyer for their divorce

Awesome divorce attorney
Michelle and her staff were awesome. They gave good advice, helped me understand the process, were thorough and understanding. They also tried to keep my costs as low as possible considering the complexity of the case. I highly recommend anyone going through divorce and custody matters to schedule a consult with her ...and her consults are even free.

Went looking for a Attorney, and ended up with a Trusted Friend
Michelle and her team have been nothing but excellent. Professionalism with the human touch. From the first time I met Michelle, she was upfront, honest and made an aspect of a very difficult time in my life as easy as possible. Her caring nature was always looking out for my best interest and what I appreciated the most was no "Bull$*#$", even if it wasnt the best news. I would highly recommend Michelle.

Michelle Winter excellent lawyer review
I have referred about 5 women so far to Michelle because she handled my divorce & subsequent questions after the fact so wonderfully. She knows her stuff, as does her staff, and along with being a sharp, knowledgeable attorney she handles the emotional stuff like a pro too !! I'd feel confident referring anyone to Michelle. And will be using her again for some stuff in the near future.

Professional, competent, and empathetic
Michelle is a very solid and experienced attorney. She is client focused, but isn't reticent about painting a realistic picture of events and their consequences as the legal process unfolds. Michelle has been a great help to me during my divorce and has provided excellent advice regarding contract matters.

Understanding and concerned
Michelle was more like a friend than attorney. She got to know me and help me through the worst time of my life. I was afraid I would have to fight and claw for everything but Michelle was able to negotiate an agreement that we both could live with. She was very understanding of my financial constraints and worked with me. Her staff especially her paralegal is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Michelle A. Winter - Excellent service and legal professional
Divorce is a situation that can become financially and mentally daunting. Lawyers can make the situation more volatile and cause the expense of the process to become more expensive. The plaintiffs and defendants can also cause the expense to increase. If everyone is not working together to move towards a reasonable agreement then it can become years of distress. Michelle is not trying to increase expense and is always trying to watch out for the best interest of everyone. She collaborates with everyone and that is important!!!! She is held in high regard in the Montgomery County Court system and has a tremendous amount of integrity and she deserves that respect. Michelle wants to eliminate/minimize the drama and get the situation resolved as quickly as possible. Her staff is outstanding and have to deal with many difficult issues and they have the experience and education to support Michelle. Her paralegal is one of the best that I have met. They are all terrific people who are a team dedicated to everyone's well being. I appreciated all they did for me during such a difficult time. They were responsive, supportive, informative, collaborative, and got the job done at each step of the process.
