Efficient and No-nonsense
Brian Liu, Esq., Founder of LegalZoom and BizCounsel
I am an attorney myself, and I’ve worked with hundreds of lawyers in my career. I also run a small real estate fund, and unfortunately, we got into a sticky situation with title – specifically, there was an undisclosed lien, and since we already sold the property, title insurance wouldn’t defend. I hate that title company! In any case, we were almost served with a default judgment, but fortunately, Jody and the team saved us. They’re efficient, no-nonsense, and got the job done. We didn’t need to overpay, and we got a good result. I’ve worked with Jody before, and I would not hesitate to work with his firm again.
Helpful and Professional
Mark Boddy, Larry Corona Construction, Inc.
Jody Winter and his team have provided great legal service to me and my small business. I would highly recommend them.
Mr. Winter was very helpful in helping me get a final bonus from my previous employer. He wrote several letters and helped with the negotiations with my employer's attorney.
Worked Hard on my Behalf
Jody Winter and the LloydWinter, P.C. team did a great job for me in a business litigation case that we had! They took on a bigger firm and worked hard on my behalf. I would highly recommend that you use them for any litigation matter you have.
Couldn't Have Asked for Better Legal Help
I couldn't have asked for better legal help. Sean never let me give up, believing in me until the very end. I hope I never need legal counsel again, but if I do this is where I'm going.
