Our Message


Getting a divorce after 21 years of marriage is obviously a difficult process. Attorney Michelle Winter and her staff, particularly Kelly Pilkington, were phenomenal. The team is responsive, professional, and provide a valuable service. I had lost a great deal of money and months of time to another attorney before retaining Michelle. Within minutes of phoning her office (which I simply found on-line), I was on the phone with Attorney Winter and felt immediate relief at her knowledge, ability to communicate, and clear professionalism. The team guided me through the process, answered all communication promptly, and I found their analysis to be very accurate. Perhaps most important: This firm has respect for my hard earned dollars. They do not nickel and dime, and I never felt that billable hours were their priority. I can attest, this was refreshing, and if there can be anything positive about a divorce experience, it's having this team represent me.

I have referred about 5 women so far to Michelle because she handled my divorce & subsequent questions after the fact so wonderfully. She knows her stuff, as does her staff, and along with being a sharp, knowledgeable attorney she handles the emotional stuff like a pro too !! I’d feel confident referring anyone to Michelle. And will be using her again for some stuff in the near future.
Wonderful! I was so nervous starting this whole divorce journey and very overwhelmed. As soon as I met with Michelle, I knew everything would be ok. The whole staff is fantastic, especially Kelly who was so patient with me when I would call or email with a bunch of questions or needed confusion cleared up. So happy this case is now closed, however I would highly recommend to anyone who needed a lawyer for their divorce
I hired Liam Duffy several years ago to represent me for both my custody case and divorce. As my divorce has been exceptionally nasty, he's been with me to custody hearings, support conferences, etc.. more than 30 times. Its been worth every penny. My kids are with me full time and I've got my life back. I've dealt with a number of other attorney's in the past on a variety of issues and been largely disappointed. Liam is a true professional. He gets back to me when I have questions, does what he says he's going to do, and he knows his stuff. I plan on having him handle my estate plan once my divorce is finalized. If you're looking for a great attorney then look no further. Hire Liam to be your guy.

After 18 years of marriage, I had finally come to terms that we had hit a point of no return in our relationship and I was absolutely miserable, it was time to make changes and quickly. I knew I needed a great lawyer because my soon to be ex husband is a spiteful man plus I have 2 children, 2 dogs, and lots of questions and concerns so I reached out to google to start checking out my options. After a bunch of free uncomfortable consultation conversations with attorney’s and tons of emotions, I spoke to Liam Duffy. Our consultation was not rushed nor uncomfortable, he listened to me, answered my questions and advised me in how the process was about to unfold, maybe mother’s instinct but my gut told me that I could trust him and he had our best interest in mind. I am glad I listened to intuition because it was right ... every step in the process and/or crazy soon-to-be-ex-husband scenarios that needed immediate attention, Liam was just a call or email away and “had my back” I went to the firm’s office the other day to sign the final divorce papers, and FINALLY had the honor to meet Liam in person (since so many changes had to be made due to Covid and all of my battles were handled outside of the courtroom) and I must say he is just as awesome in person! To anyone who is reading this, I want you to know that I highly recommend Liam Duffy to represent you in all your unfortunate family matters. He is an extremely professional, knowledgeable and an all around genuine great guy whom you can trust to be on your side and get results! To Liam, thank you for all of your time, your patience, your support and encouragement, your wise and beneficial advise and favorable results. It has been a pleasure. To Pam and Stephanie, your assistance does not go unrecognized. Thank you ladies!
Divorce is a situation that can become financially and mentally daunting. Lawyers can make the situation more volatile and cause the expense of the process to become more expensive. The plaintiffs and defendants can also cause the expense to increase. If everyone is not working together to move towards a reasonable agreement then it can become years of distress. Michelle is not trying to increase expense and is always trying to watch out for the best interest of everyone. She collaborates with everyone and that is important!!!! She is held in high regard in the Montgomery County Court system and has a tremendous amount of integrity and she deserves that respect. Michelle wants to eliminate/minimize the drama and get the situation resolved as quickly as possible. Her staff is outstanding and have to deal with many difficult issues and they have the experience and education to support Michelle. Her paralegal is one of the best that I have met. They are all terrific people who are a team dedicated to everyone’s well being. I appreciated all they did for me during such a difficult time. They were responsive, supportive, informative, collaborative, and got the job done at each step of the process.
Michelle and her team have been nothing but excellent. Professionalism with the human touch. From the first time I met Michelle, she was upfront, honest and made an aspect of a very difficult time in my life as easy as possible. Her caring nature was always looking out for my best interest and what I appreciated the most was no “Bull”, even if it wasnt the best news. I would highly recommend Michelle.
Absolutely amazing law firm right here! Liam Duffy has been representing me in a very long custody matter and I couldn't be happier with how things are progressing. Mr. Duffy is not only a great attorney but the entire staff at Winter Law is exceptional. Knowing I have such an incredible legal team in my corner really is priceless. I highly recommend this firm!

Family Attorney
I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle as opposing counsel in a family law case. Most importantly, Michelle is upfront and honest. She is extremely pragmatic and realistic with her requests and because of this her clients tend to think about a case logically as well. All in all, Michelle is a pleasure to work with.
Family Attorney
An extremely talented and well respected attorney in the legal community, I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a lawyer who knows the law and truly cares about protecting the rights of her clients and getting them the most favorable result possible.
