Jeremy Winton, a Western Kentucky native, is a four-time All American Boxer, a former South Eastern United States Kickboxing Association Champion, a former Kentucky and national Kickboxing Champion, and the 2000 NCBA Outstanding Boxer of the Year.

During his college years, Jeremy had the opportunity to work with underprivileged children through Lexington Parks & Recreation. The main focus of the center was to improve academic achievement and to help meet the social, cultural and recreational needs of the participating students and their families. He has since made it his objective to create a better future for anyone he can, when he can.

In 2015, Jeremy became a Kentucky Colonel, was honored to receive the Community Service Award from Kentucky House of Representatives and the Key to the City by Mayor Greg Fischer.

Jeremy believes the overall purpose of his firm mirrors our approach to community service showing our clients that there are positive, life affirming options available and that Winton & Hiestand and its staff are among the people who can help them get there.
