The first nearly eight years of Mr. Winter’s legal career were spent prosecuting felony criminal cases in Phoenix, Arizona, specializing in complex criminal prosecutions, wiretap cases, gang and repeat offender cases, drug and methamphetamine laboratory cases.   


Since that time, Bill has spent his career helping families create powerful, loving and lasting estate plans; helping business owners, farmers and ranchers arrange their business affairs in significant and meaningful ways and to plan so that they can leave their businesses in style; and helping families salvage their life savings from the ravages of Medicaid and nursing home costs.


Bill is a popular and vibrant speaker who has taught government officials, employees of financial institutions, CPAs, attorneys, and other professionals, as well as business owners and the public at large in hundreds of meetings, workshops, seminars, and executive briefings since 1995.
