I am a 5th generation Houstonian and proud Texan. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, I took my first job teaching social studies in Houston’s public schools and eventually became a dean of instruction at a local high school. After 14 years in education, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of practicing law.

Today, I help clients with their family, employment, probate, and civil matters. I learned to practice law at some of the most respected firms in Texas and the country. I learned a lot working at a big firm but decided to start my own firm to bring that unique experience, along with 14 years of experience as a public educator, to Texas families in need of help.

Vanessa R. Winton, PLLC is a Texas law firm that was founded to utilize big firm experience but still provide personalized service to individual clients. If you hire me, you work with me directly. I will be there with you every step of the way throughout your case. I believe that this hands-on approach is the only way to make my clients feel truly at ease with the litigation process, which can be incredibly stressful.

I have seen the toll that litigation takes on people. It is my goal to get you and your family through it as efficiently as possible, while doing everything I can to make it as easy as possible for you but still deliver the results you want and deserve.

If you are facing a family, employment, probate, or civil dispute, don’t wait or try to handle it on your own. Contact our office today for a free and confidential case evaluation.
