Despite her family's courtroom tug-of-war over where and how she should live, Modern Family's Ariel Winter is just fine, her attorney tells PEOPLE exclusively.
"Ariel is doing well and she has a lot of people who are loving her and supporting her at this time, and I'm pretty confident that she'll fare well through all of this," says the 14-year-old's guardianship attorney, Amir Pichvai.
"She is obviously a very smart and articulate young lady and an accomplished actress."

The mother of 14-year-old Modern Family star Ariel Winter denied Wednesday allegations she abused her daughter, who has a restraining order against her mom and has moved out of the house.
"It's all untrue, it's all untrue," Chris Workman tells PEOPLE.
According to court papers filed Oct. 3 in Los Angeles, Winter – who plays Alex Dunphy on the hit show – alleges her mother subjected her to "ongoing physical abuse (slapping, hitting, pushing) and emotional abuse (vile name-calling, personal insults about minor and minor's weight, attempts to 'sexualize' minor, deprivation of food, etc.) for an extended period of time."

There's no slowing down for Ariel Winter.
When she's not playing Alex Dunphy on Modern Family, the actress, 14, buries herself in her books.
"It's not that difficult to balance [work and school]," she told PEOPLE at Sunday's Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times Halloween carnival on the Universal Studios backlot in L.A. "I'm big into school. I really try to make it work."
In fact, she's already thinking about her future higher education.
