Winter served the legal needs of Oregon and Madison area families from one generation to the next.  In 2013, Winter Law Office joined hands with The Law Center for Children & Families, forming The Law Center, S.C.  As a result of the merger, the firm is able to serve more of its clients’ diverse  legal needs while continuing a tradition of personal client relationships.
