Jared Christian Winter

About me

I have practiced criminal defense for my entire legal career because I enjoy what I do.  I have successfully represented clients charged with just about any type of crime you can think of -- murder, armed robbery, sex crimes, bank robbery, fraud, embezzlement, DUI, domestic violence -- just to name a few.
