Representation of Council, Alex Winston,
I'm an Over The Road Truckdriver for the U.S. Postal Service. I travel across country, every week, from central N.C. to Los Angels. So, my job allows for situations to happen more often than most, specifically moving violations. Working for the Federal Government, as a commercial driver, I'm constantly under strict scrutiny to maintain my position and the government! Recently, I received a citation. Not being from the area or state, I had no familiarity of any attorneys. After searching the internet, I read the very first listing's reviews; Attorney, Alex Winston. He had a 5 Star Rating and several rave reviews! And, faced with a very short time to plan for representation, I contacted Attorney, Winston. He was very cordial and assured me that he would work to achieve the best results. At which, he Thorne's explained how and what to expect, as the final result; to make sure this would not go on my driving record. With all said, I felt confident and assured I made the right decision. 2 Weeks later, results successfully achieved! Being a commercial driver, I will definitely refer any and all other truckdrivers and others to Attorney, Winston! And, if the situation ever arises again and I need representation, I will not hesitate to use him again! Thanks, Alex

Fantastic lawyer for any traffic violation
After receiving a ticket for going twice the speed limit and reckless driving, I was unsure of what to do. I called 6 different offices and Alex was extremely informative and discussed what he thought he would be able to do. Regarding the traffic violations, he was able to have the reckless driving outright dismissed and the speeding violation to be removed upon completion of driving school. I was very pleased and impressed with Alexander's performance and am very glad I hired him. If you are facing any sort or traffic violation, I highly recommend contacting Mr. Winston.

Simply the best
Alex is an amazing lawyer. He was prompt when responding, sent fool proof instructions, and provided a personal experience and got me out of my ticket to help keep my auto insurance cost down. I would recommend him to anyone needing any law services.

Reliable and Communicative
Alex Winston was the first lawyer I have ever had to use and was very satisfied with the end results. My speeding ticket was dismissed, and all that was left to do was pay court fees. I highly recommend Mr. Winston.

Great attorney for my traffic case!
Alex helped me with a moving violation (traffic) citation. He was able to get the charges dismissed with payment of court costs. He was professional in all his communications and was always quick to respond to emails or calls. I felt his rate was also very reasonable for the service he provided. Highly recommended!

Good attorney
I received a speeding citation in Blount County, I live out of state. I contacted Mr. Winston to see if I could get the ticket dismissed or reduced. I consulted with him he told me that it was a possibility to get it dismissed outright that was what he was going to try to do. He also appeared in court on my behalf so I wouldn't have to come back into town. I was contacted by him on my court date he told me the ticket was dismissed outright. Mr. Winston was well worth hiring to fight my ticket.

True Professional
Alex was an absolute professional from start to finish. I received a ticket when visiting the area and gave Alex a call after returning home. He was very polite on the phone, took down all of my information, sent me an email shortly after, and was prompt to let me know the favorable outcome of my case. I hope to never find myself in this situation again while visiting, but if I do; i'll call Alex.

Traffic violation
Mr. Winston is very professional and prompt. I felt that he handled all of my court needs in a punctual and timely manor. He was very clear and descript about my options and I feel very satisfied with the end results. I basically made one phone call and three email correspondence, and my case was handled. I will definitely be calling him back in the future if the need ever arises.

Due Care Act Traffic Citation
Alex was very professional and transparent throughout his representation of me in court, he was able to completely dismiss my due care act ticket. It took a few appearances in court, but he did not charge extra and the ticket was eventually dismissed. He did a great job and I would highly reccomend him!
