“We don’t simply provide exceptional legal services; we have the privilege and responsibility of representing and advising individuals and families facing difficult challenges – to be there when it counts most.”

Dirk Winkler

Dirken D. Winkler is the founder of Winkler Legal, LLC.  With over 22 years of legal experience, Dirk’s legal career has revolved around legal issues affecting individuals and families.  Dirk is passionate about making a positive difference for every client.  Whether it is creating an estate plan that provides care for a loved one with special needs, or a family struggling to arrange and pay for long-term care for an aging parent, Dirk will never stop until he finds the solution to a problem.

Dirk is married to his wife Lora and they are raising three wonderful children.  In his spare time, Dirk likes to exercise, fly fish, play golf and watch the Buckeyes.  Getting out and staying active is one way he clears his mind and focuses on what is important.  Dirk believes that it is the responsibility of every employee to provide our clients with exceptional legal services, coupled with compassion and understanding.

“It is great to get to work for a firm that cares first and foremost about its clients. Helping someone navigate such a confusing and stressful time in their life is so rewarding, and we genuinely want to make a positive difference in our clients’ lives each day.”
