Originally from upstate NY, I moved to central Texas after joining the Air Force.  Served through Operation Desert Storm.  I have a diverse background enabling me to offer insight into areas a lot of lawyers are unable to do.

 

My mission for the firm is to provide client accessibility to their cases through my case management software.  This allows clients the ability to upload files and view files immediately which greatly enhances communication and builds a positive attorney-client relationship.

Probate filing
Tammy was friendly and extremely helpful in helping me with probate issues. She set up appointment within a day of calling her office. She answered my questions and made my visit comfortable. I recommend her and I will use her in future legal issues I may have.

Professional and Compassionate
Tammy Wincott exceeded our expectations, she was professional and compassionate, meeting the needs of our family as we worked through a difficult and emotional situation. She listened to our questions providing answers and explanations in terms all could understand. Our situation was complicated as our family is spread out over several states, Ms. Wincott was there for us all. She always went the extra mile working above and beyond the typical client/lawyer relationship. Our family is truly grateful for her service, it is our pleasure to recommend Tammy Wincott as a very qualified and caring attorney who can handle any situation.

House Deed
Mrs. Wincott was amazing. Explained everything perfectly. Added my father to my house deed and it only took 2 days. Could have been faster if I emailed my documents over to her sooner. Highly recommended. Thank you Mrs. Wincott.

Best Attorney!
Tammy Wincott has been the best resource and advocate for me and my family as we faced the sudden death of my younger brother who left no will. After researching various attorneys online (and speaking with a few), I have found that Ms. Wincott proved to be the most open and honest. When other attorneys were trying to tangle the family up in a myriad of complicated and unnecessary steps, Ms. Wincott advised of the most direct (and most cost-effective) route that allowed us to get the results that we needed. In addition, I was so impressed by the fact that she took the time to listen to the needs of the family and to even take a moment to listen to my tear-ridden grief. Indeed, Ms. Wincott is not only a well-informed, top-notch attorney, she is also someone who clearly cares about her clients.

Capable, Knowledgeable, Personable
Ms. Wincott is a wonderful lady. She was always available when we needed her & interacted with us on a very personal level. For as long as our case was drawn out, she handled it diligently, effectively & thoughtfully. We would definitely refer friends/family should they need legal services.

Highly Recommended
I definitely would recommend Tammy to anyone looking for an experienced attorney who is truly passionate about and dedicated to her work. Tammy was very upfront right from the start about the amount of time and work put in that it would take to work on my case. Understanding how imminent and sensitive my case was, as it directly involved the well-being/safety of my child, Tammy took nothing 'with a grain of salt' ; I was given prompt updates every step of the way. Everything she said she would do, was done and not once was she 'too busy' to consult with me. Having an attorney in a time of desperate need who took my case to heart and spent countless hours not only preparing, but understanding my case was crucial. She went above and beyond for me and my family!!!

Response from Tammy Wincott September 29, 2015
Rachel, Thank you for your positive remarks about Wincott Law Firm and Attorney Tammy L. Wincott. We are not the cheapest firm; however, we strive to rise above others through customer service and providing the clients with online case access. The firm is located in San Antonio, Texas and can accept clients from around the world for immigration or Bexar County and surrounding counties such as Comal, Blanco, Guadalupe, Kendall, Bandera, Atascosa, Wilson, etc. for local issues like family law, divorce, wills and probate or bankruptcy. You will meet directly with the attorney and our new location in a designated historical home north of downtown San Antonio immediately puts clients at ease. Since relocating here in February of 2015, I've received nothing but positive responses and all indicate they are so much more comfortable. Please contact us should you or others you know need an attorney in the future. Please see the website as our phone number has changed. Thank you again for your kind words and your choice of Wincott Law Firm for your legal needs.
