I initially reviewed Christopher Wintter two months ago when I called him for a consultation. I now think that review was premature.
On the second phone call, his tone completely changed - he told me that he had not read the will and trust carefully enough and that he did believe now there was reason to litigate and requested a $15k retainer. Needles to say, I was very surprised by the change of tone and demeanor. He then proceeded to make fun of me saying "how could I expect him to work for free and do I not have a credit card to put $15k retainer on." Classic example of bait and switch. Beware of this kind of tactic. Completely unprofessional of him to tell me he didn't carefully read a legal document.

I called Christopher Wintter for a consultation. Mr. Wintter was not the first attorney I had spoken to. I had spoken to several others. After he reviewed my mothers will and trust, he actually gave me unexpected advice, and relieved the terrible pressure I had thinking that litigation was imminent. All other lawyers l had spoken to were pushing me to litigate. Christopher Wintter spent over an hour on the phone patiently explaining to me that things weren't as bad as I was thinking. He translated and clearly explained the legal language of the will and trust. All of this was done prior to me retaining him for anything. I felt incredibly grateful and I'm writing this letter to show my gratitude of having the luck to run into this honest attorney If you're looking for someone that's not going to take advantage of their advantage, and actually seems to have compassion and integrity, I highly recommend this gentleman. I am sure he saved me a great deal of hardship.

I highly recommend Christopher Wintter and his law firm. I was referred to Mr. Wintter by word of mouth as he is well regarded in Probate and Estate Litigation. I had a rather difficult estate issue and on my first contact with Mr. Wintter he gave me excellent legal advice while putting me at ease and giving me hope during a difficult time.
He made his fees clear to me and approached our consultation with a very practical perspective that made
it easier for me to understand the circumstances.
After retaining Mr. Wintter and his firm I found that he and his associates were very professional and knowledgeable in the practice of Estate Law. Being specialists in this area of law turned out to be a great advantage to me and I was extremely satisfied with the outcome of my case. I wish I would have found Mr. Wintter’s firm sooner as it would have saved me a good deal of time and effort.
I highly recommend this firm and I will use Christopher Wintter and Associates again in the future.

Chris is exceptionally knowledgeable on probate, trust and guardianship litigation matters. I have had the pleasure of working with him on cases and I frequently consult him on complex issues. Chris is beyond professional and is a fierce advocate for his clients. I wholeheartedly recommend him and his entire firm.
