This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Gary is a knowledgeable young man. In being so, however, he was not intimidating during our discussion of amendments we were considering in our trust. He recognized immediately what negative implications some of those changes might have. His explanations were clear and easily understandable. Gary also has a pleasant, efficient office staff.

Service provided by Gary L Winter
I have been very satisfied with the service provided by Gary. He is very knowledgeable, he explained what a Living Will & Trust is and how it works. He advised me that I didn't need a Special Needs Trust for my son. Gary also checks with me to see if there have been any changes in our family.

Mr Winter
Mr. Winter was helpful, honest, proffessional and treated me with respect throughout the case. He is a man of his word and if I should ever need these types of services again he would be at the top of a very short list that included only himself.

Excellent service
Gary has helped my family with several matters over the years, from forming an S-Corp to family trust & estate planning to purchasing stock in a small business. Each time, he has provided excellent service in going over applicable laws and the pros and cons of each option relevant to our situation. He is trustworthy, courteous and professional, and our work has always been completed in a timely manner. I highly recommend Gary to those seeking legal counsel.

Very Helpful and Informative
Gary was really helpful in answering my questions about my business. I like the fact that he was informative and willing to help without me feeling like the "egg timer" just started. We have signed up for a few of his company's resource services available through Lawvex Lean, which make staying in compliance really easy and affordable.

Very trustworthy and careing..
Gary is an all-around trustworthy and caring individual. His values and ethics are second to none. He helped us put together our family plan that included exactly what should happen with our kids in the event of family tragedy. I have recomended him to a number of other people/families, and all have had very positive experiences.
