When you’re facing a legal or financial concern, you generally want the matter resolved as quickly and painlessly as possible. As your legal team, we work hard to make that happen by approaching the negotiation with clear objectives and fighting hard for what you need.


One of the best things about working with a small law firm is being able to talk to your team one-on-one. We get to know our clients as people (not just case numbers), which makes us all the more passionate about doing everything we can to help them.

Joel D. Winter

An Attorney Who Gets It

Between Joel’s background in accounting and his own lingering soft tissue injury, it’s no wonder he got into the areas of law that he did. Whether it’s a mountain of debt or a pile of unpaid medical bills causing you grief, Joel understands what you’re going through. He and his team will use every tool at their disposal to put you on the path to a healthy, debt-free life.

How We Help


As your case progresses, it’s important that your legal counsel knows how to anticipate potential roadblocks and adjust their strategy accordingly. At the Winter Law Group, we strive to take this service one step farther. That is, we make a point of keeping you in the loop and taking the time to explain any changes in your case so that you always know what to expect.


When you’re overwhelmed with debt or struggling to collect payment for an injury, it’s difficult to see beyond that stressful, all-consuming question: How am I going to get past this? When you meet with us for your initial consultation, we’ll help you break down your case so that finding a solution becomes a manageable, step-by-step process — one that we’ll help you get through if you decide to stick with us.


“Trial” is a word that gets thrown around a lot in legal dramas, but in truth, it’s more common to resolve legal concerns through other forms of negotiation (which in turn saves you time, money, and unnecessary stress). That being said, you can rest easier knowing that, if you aren’t being offered a fair deal, we won’t hesitate to take a more aggressive approach.


What our clients say

Areas We Serve


You’ll find our law office located in Fresno, California. However, our bankruptcy and personal injury services extend much farther. No matter where you live in the Central Valley, don’t hesitate to give us a call.


In the heart of the San Joaquin Valley sits Merced, California. From our office, it’s just a short drive up CA-99 — a drive we’re happy to make for our clients. If you can’t come to us, we’ll come to you or plan a time to discuss your case over the phone.


Our neighbor to the south, Visalia is home to a number of clients we’ve worked with over the years. If you live there or in another nearby area along the Golden State Highway, we encourage you to reach out for legal guidance.


Throughout the Central Valley, we at the Winter Law Group strive to provide top-notch legal advice and services to anyone who is struggling with debt or has been injured in an accident. We will work hand-in-hand with you to help you recover from a personal, financial, and legal standpoint.

Clear answers. Sound counsel. Unwavering support.

At the Winter Law Group, we like to think of ourselves as part of your team. Our role isn’t to simply take over your case, but also to educate you on your rights, guide you through your options, and ultimately empower you to reclaim the future you want. In the spirit of that message, we leave you with these simple truths about personal injury claims and common misconceptions about bankruptcy.

The Truth about Personal Injury Claims

Remember, insurance companies are in business to make money, not to make large payments to those who have been hurt by their insureds. We are here to help you get the compensation you so rightly deserve so that your life can go back to normal.

What You Should Know about Bankruptcy

Financial struggles are nothing to be ashamed of. Everyone succumbs to debt sooner or later, and truth be told, many of the more serious debt concerns our clients face were caused not by irresponsible decision-making but by tough breaks like getting sick or going through a divorce. The fact is, we’re here to help you overcome your debt and move forward, not dwell on the past.

“Bankruptcy” may sound like a scary word, but it could actually give you the fresh start you need. Over the years, we've helped hundreds of families protect their homes, their businesses, and their family’s futures by offering both bankruptcy guidance and other debt-settlement solutions. Don’t let any misplaced shame or embarrassment stop you from getting the help you need. Contact us so we can begin to build the right solution for your unique situation.
