Family Divorce Lawyer
Mr. Winter diligently represented me over the course of an extremely complicated and frustrating divorce. My ex-husband tried to take sole and separate property, gain spousal support, filed multiple frivolous motions, and appealed everything. It was exhaustive to say the least. The result was that Mr. Winter defended and rightfully won those disputes and I was awarded multiple legal fees. He was professional and compassionate during the most challenging time in my life and I’m now overjoyed with the outcome.

Attorney of the year prize goes to Brian G. Winter, Esq. at Stewart Law Group
For nearly 18 months, Mr. Brian Winter and his paralegal, Ms. Stephannie Barrera at Stewart Law Group, guided me through the frustrating business of questioning the trustee of my mother’s estate about where a large portion of her assets went both before and after her death. Not once did Mr. Winter mislead me about potential costs in cases when an uncooperative trustee is involved. I am grateful that Mr. Winter had my back during this painful and difficult time of my life; he is a compassionate attorney whom I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone who is in need of representation for estate matters. Thank you kindly, Mr. Winter and Ms. Barrera!

I worked with Brian Winter from Stewart Law Group in my divorce case, and I have to say that I am fortunate to have had him represent me. He was aggressive and fought to ensure an equitable outcome. I really appreciate how he explained the processes and prepared me for every step along the way. I always felt that he had my best interests at heart and he truly listened to me.

Brian Winter and the staff at Stewart Law Group were awesome.
I reluctantly searched for a family practice lawyer on the internet because I had no referrals. I was anticipating an upcoming, potentially life changing surgery and needed to get my affairs in order as soon as possible. After my initial consult with Brian Winter, I was sold. Mr. Winter was extremely thorough, informing me of things I hadn't even thought of. He told me what all I needed to have in place, for a Will, a Living Will, a POA, and a few other things, to insure my family would have whatever they (legally) needed to manage my affairs. Mr. Winter was professional, respectful and compassionate. He assured me all the legal documentation would be ready for me BEFORE my surgery, which was only 1 week from the date of our consult. I highly recommend Brian Winter and the staff at Stewart Law Group for estate planning. It certainly put my mind at ease, knowing my medical and financial affairs are in order, and that they are exactly as I want them. I completely trusted Mr. Winter, because he demonstrated that he had MY best interest at heart. He did this by going through every single page, explaining to me what it was saying, and he wouldn't let me sign until I agreed with, and understood everything that was there. Thanks Mr. Winter!!!
