Excellent Lawyer and Advocate
Attorney Winter took a legitimate interest in my case and I feel that he has a real passion for making sure our rights are secure. He is the only attorney I contacted that made me feel that way. He is doing a great job for me. I am very satisfied. I hope he outlives me, so I don't have to go anywhere else!

Great honest hard working fighter!
I was charged with a crime that was a case of ignorance of the law is no excuse. I contacted 3 law firms the first 2 gave me the old "this is really bad you need to give us a huge retainer" While Eric's firm said "this is no big deal we have seen this before many times and everything is going to be fine" Of course I used Eric thank God I'm older and have retained attorneys 17 times during my life, and only three times I felt not taking advantage of. And Eric is the best of the three. (things like charging 3 hours of drive time ($900) to 3 different parties on the same day from Pottstown to Norristown is not fair. Eric didn't even charge drive time because it was in Berks! My favorite part of Eric was that after the DA gave us an offer that I thought was OK and was ready to take! Eric shot it down! it was like he was fighting for himself! He saved me thousands and also worked it out so I won't have a criminal record. I can't say enough about how impressed I am. He is a fighter! He may look mellow but trust me he is not! Too the people who wrote bad reviews, You don''t understand a good attorney is really busy (Eric phone never stopped ringing) They can't speak to you every two seconds! they would never get anything done. Write your questions down and ask when you see them.

Happy client
Mr. Winter was extremely knowledgeable about the law and very professional in the handling of my case. He returned my phone calls promptly and did a great job. I am very happy with the work that Mr. Winter did for my and I am very happy that I chose him as my attorney.

Do not use this lawyer!!!
He is unprofessional and I felt like I was his lawyer instead of him. I had to remind him numerous time about my immigration application deadline. He is not a good representation of his law firm, sad to say.

Unfortunate
Mr Winter almost certainly upon having consulted with an alternative attorney at this point has made my situation significantly worse almost to the point of there being legal repercussions. Several mishandled items in my case have come to light upon review. I am extremely displeased.

should of left it up to the public defender
I met Eric at my daughters prelim. Prior to her hearing, Eric spent about 30 minutes with her at the jail. He seemed very unprepared and uncertain about anything that was going on. While she was waiting, he stood next to the arresting detective and laughed and talked like she was of no importance. Basically, he recited to me what the detectives and judge decided. He did not fight or negotiate for her. He was the messenger between me and the judge. I fired him the very next day. The case is still going on. Im sure that Eric Winters is a nice guy, but when you are fighting something so serious.....you need tough not nice. He got my money and we got absolutely nothing.

A bad situation made worse by Mr. Winter
Eric was terribly hard to get a hold of. Promises of time were not kept. When corresponding through email (which he requests, since he is very busy), we're not replied to in a timely manner. I can not grade his knowledgeability because he did not show that to me.

Eric E. Winter's reputation for not being present for clients
Mr. Winter was never available to discuss my needs and every teleconference that was scheduled, was completely missed or rescheduled at Mr. Winter’s convenience. Mr. Winter’s demonstrated no regard for valuation of my time and efforts as a client. Mr. Winter was slow to respond to my queries or forgot that I was waiting for an answer. He further unprofessionally complained of having excessive litigations as an excuse for his slow response times. I never judge a book by its cover, but Mr. Winter was the most unkempt, poorly groomed, and sloppily dressed person I have ever witnessed in a court room.

Litigation Attorney | Dec 08

"Eric's knowledge of the law is matched only by his work ethic. Eric is tough, smart, and completely dedicated to doing what's best for his clients. I recommend his work."
Litigation Attorney | Nov 13
Relationship: Co-worker
"Eric and I have been working together on several matters in our firm. He has handled both criminal and civil matters extremely effectively, quickly and creatively. His dedication to the practice and knowledge of the law are outstanding. I strongly encourage anyone seeking advice in criminal, civil or family matters to consult with Eric."
Litigation Attorney | Dec 03
Relationship: Co-worker
"I sincerely believe that Attorney Winter is one of the best attorneys in southeastern Pennsylvania. I have had the privilege of working with Attorney Winter for approximately two years now. Attorney Winter's experience in both the District Attorney's office and private practice provides a solid foundation for the representation of his clients, regardless of whether he is tackling a criminal, family law, civil, or immigration matter. He is dedicated to the ethical representation of his clients and, despite often taking high-profile cases that attract media attention, is motivated not by short-term self-gain but by his clients' long-term best interest. He relentlessly seeks to place his clients in a position for the best possible outcome in their cases. If I ever personally had a criminal legal issue, I would call Attorney Winter for representation. In my opinion, this is the highest compliment an attorney can extend to a colleague."
