My ex-wife and I were divorced in 2004, but she has continued to maintain a regular barrage of legal action over the last nine years, and this includes a motion for modification and a guardianship issue that has taken three years to be heard. My current wife and I had been through two attorneys prior to finding Howard and his associate Elena Tsizer. We were desperate to find someone who believed in us, and who would actually fight for us. Right away we noticed a huge difference from our previous counsel. Howard and Elena were very attentive, responsive, and they actually cared. Within weeks of hiring them, positive changes began to happen. My ex-wife was denying me visitation with my son. Howard and Elena took action to ensure that I was treated fairly and, most importantly, that I can now spend regular time with my son. At first my ex-wife’s attorneys ignored them, as they usually did, but unlike most attorneys, Howard and Elena are fighters and they do not put up at all with unprofessional behavior. When they say that they take your case personally, they really mean it! The dedication of Howard, Elena, and their paralegal Julie Royle went way above and beyond anything we could have hoped for, and they successfully ended a reign of bullying that had been going on for 9 years.
For the first time, Howard and Elena got my story out there in front of the judge. If you are just starting your divorce process or if you’re feeling beaten and you’re ready to give up, you need to hire these people. Having already experienced several attorneys who tell you what you want to hear, yet ultimately do nothing for you—except take your money, give Howard and Elena a try. We almost didn’t believe all of the glowing reviews about Lewis & Leeper on this site. But here we are, writing our own. Howard’s been described in reviews as being a real human being who genuinely cares. We can honestly say that’s true—and the same goes for Elena and Julie. Thank you all for getting my son back into our lives.

Howard was recommended to us by a family friend who knew of his work. We worked with him for almost 18 months and I can honestly say he is an all-in lawyer who truly cares about his client and thier story. He asks probing questions but intently listens to the answers because you will hear him repeat it weeks down the road. Howard is an experienced knowledgable lawyer with a great team to back him up. One of the many things that I respect him for is his honesty and that he sets clear expectations. His priority is getting the client the best deal, which he did. He was a tremendous help to our family and we are grateful.

howard was my third lawyer and many people will tell you that sometimes lawyers don't take people who've had three or more lawyers. i told my first lawyer to keep it simple no need for drama or fighting but she didn't listen and rang up a big legal bill, did a lot of yelling and we got no nowhere fast- second lawyer same thing. My co-worker recommended Howard so I called him and scheduled a telephone appt. which we did on a saturday. He listened to my version of the facts and said to me this is easy lets keep it uncomplicated and get you out of this mess; i said that was what i told the other two lawyers and they couldn't or didn't want to. Howard sent me a fee agreement and the terms were fair. I hired him on the following wednesday and less than 30 days later I was divorced. He kept his word and I thank him and his whole office they were great!

I hired Attorney Lewis to handle my divorce case based on the countless positive reviews I read. I hoped to be among the long list of satisfied clients, and after a lengthy consultation with him I believed that I could count on his ample experience. I knew I needed an attorney who was familiar with the process and attentive to my individual concerns. Howard provided all of that, and in addition helped me personally by offering his advice and listening to me. He told me on more than one occasion that he sees his clients as family and I can say that he delivered on that statement. He not only helped me to secure a very favorable outcome in my proceedings, but spent more than one occasion on the phone with me late in the evening when I needed guidance. I'm happy to say that as a lawyer he suited my needs extremely well. I'm even more pleased to say that throughout the entire ordeal I felt like I'd not only secured an exceptional attorney, but added a much needed loyal friend to the process.

Howard was my attorney and even though my wife agreed to everything her lawyer didn't , howard made sure the judge heard our side and basically said to all of us settle or spend our kids college education on a trial and in my opinion attny lewis is the only reasonable person in my courtroom. Howard had the agreement drafted in advance and with two small changes we were done.
Posted by Dave, a Child Support client, Flag
My wife filed a modification seeking to change school districts, custody and requested an increase in support. Howard recommended a four way conference to see what they really wanted. They tried to bully us and scared us. Howard looked across the table and said we will happily negotiate in fairness or we can go to trial and I am confident you will not prevail a d we will seek the costs of your frivolous action. They snicker. We went to trial we won and they paid my fees since then my ex has been very respectful in front of our children and as such my kids who are my life have never done better!

howard and his office represented me twice> the first time for my divorce and custody fight which after the longest year and a half of my life I won. Then when my jerk ex (and i love saying ex) wouldn't follow the judges order and when I called Howard on Saturday he said one word "contempt" by monday we had a draft and by wednesday it was filed. We actually didn't"t even half to go to court. Howard filed a motion for costs and attorney fees and when they asked to settle he asked me and let me make the decision that is why he is my favorite professional I have ever worked with. He let me decide and told me his opinion which was always what was best for me. I have yelped about good and bad restaurants and if Howard was a restaurant he would be five stars

Howard Lewis helped really made my divorce a lot easier than I thought it would be. He made me feel like he really cared about what I was going through and made sure I got what was rightfully mine. A real pleasure to work with.

Howard represented me during my divorce and I would absolutely recommend him and his entire firm. He did an excellent job and was extremely attentive to me during a very difficult and emotional time. My husbands attorney tried to undervalue our estate and Howard very respectfully showed him our own research and that shut him and my husband up so we could settle. It's hard to speak publicly about such a private matter but I thought thanking Howard online was the least I could do. Thanks to Julie and Catherine as well they were both great too

Howard represented me as my second attorney and finished my case. My husband tried to file an annulment and avoid support and hurt me financially and legally. Howard did not give up on me and. We fought back and won. The bottom line is he kept his word on his fees and the results and he is honest and ethical. Equually important he fought for me when no one else would and gave me back my independence and self esteem.
Posted by Lorrie, a Divorce client, Flag
I hired Howard for a very simple agreed upon divorce and he promised he would keep it that way. You know what?- he did exactly what he said he would. Even though we had to go to court twice because my genius husband forgot the first date we got it done on the second date. I actually now like lawyers or at at least Howard. His firm was very supportive and made me feel very safe. I asked him for a final bill and he actually refunded money. I don't usually believe most people, but my experience has restored my faith and although I love lawyer jokes Howard and his firm are the exception. Take good care and I wish them all well!!!! Oh. Julie is very funny and extremely professional. Give her a raise Howie!

Howard represented me during my divorce and did a very good job for a very reasonable price. Then when my ex demanded I pay for things that were not in our agreement I said no and she filed a contempt against me. I rehired Howard , he put me on the witness stand and also cross examined my ex. The judge took the case under advisement and three weeks later we recieved the order that I was not in contempt and my ex had to pay my legal fees. Howard is a very good listener and an incredible advocate.

Howard represented me for a very emotional divorce. My number one priority was making sure my wife did not procrastinate and cost our family excessive expenses. Howard made sure this did not happen. He always returned my calls emails and texts no matter the day or time. He got me divorced very fast and did an excellent job. I recommend him and thank him and his office very much.

Upon meeting Atorney Lewis I immediately felt comfrotable during a very uneasy time in my life. His staff and himself made it a point to make me feel like I was a very important client and they were going to get me the outcome I wanted come my court date. They did just that! I was very pleased at not only the outcome of the court date, but also the professionalism of Attorney Lewis and his staff. He contacted me often to get all the facts, represented me well, and the outcome was successful. Every one of my emails or phone calls got returned very quickly. On a personal level I appreciated the fact that Howard was not only knowlegable and reliable, but also cared. I can remember being very upset about my case and him telling me that everything was going to be ok! That means alot during such a stressful time in ones life. Overall I would recommend Attorney Lewis a thousand times over.

Howard represented me in my original divorce 3years ago then I called him when my ex and his creepy lawyer filed a modification to change the agreement. I called Howard (actually texted) him and he responded within minutes. We stopped their modification by Howard's oral argument then we won a contempt. Howard is a great guy anda brilliant lawyer. Even my husbands lawyer said so. Thank. Everyonev at the whole office. Bhopevyou like the gift cards.

Howard was very professional,kind and sympathetic during this tough process. He went above and beyond looking out for the best interest of myself and my children. I would highly recommend Howard and his firm to anyone needing assistance during such a difficult time.

I hired howard to help me divorce my useless husband. He was always there for me and in court I truly felt that my story was fully and properly told (finally). The rest of the group was always there for me as well and made me feel protected-many thanks to raquel, lorena and especially Ann who is a great attorney. Howard not only looked out for my divorce he made sure that we didn't needlessly go to court and waste money. Howard is extremely practical, ecxceptionally honest and in my opinion the best divorce atttorney around! when i wanted to rush the case and got frustrated he told me to take a breath and yell at him if it made me feel better , but dont give in or rush for the sake of just getting it over and he was 100% right! thank you Howard and everyone else for being such wonderful professionals.

Howard represented me in my divorce. He was my third attorney and I knew after hiring him and spending time with him he would be my last and the best, it turns out I was right. He took over my case and the whole game changed. My spouse went from going after my business and my family assets to begging to settle. Howard was always there for me. Nights, weekends, by text email and on his cell. Even during the holidays he checked in on me and answered my questions. Mt wife spent 5 times what I spent and She lost. I have recommended Howard and his team to everyone at my office and my clubs. When my case was over I offered to buy him or his office a gift instead he said save the money for my family and donate something anonymously to charity which I did ,but in his name. Howard is an incredible attorney and a great person. He has a military sense of strategy, a brilliant mind and a great sense of humor. He saved my business.

When my marriage entered choppy waters, I interviewed a few attorneys who all gave the same bland answers which left me hopeless about what I wanted and felt deserved to get. Then, based on reviews in this forum, I met with attorney Ann at Howard's office and subsequently with Howard himself. Howard impressed me immediately by not only grasping the concerns I had, but also by suggesting ideas/strategies that gave me the confidence that I had a good shot at getting the outcomes I was hoping to achieve. That was a big step forward for me. From there on, trust started building and I relied on Howard to help me out with a couple of tricky situations where I found him to be both timely/responsive and creative in coming up with excellent solutions. Throughout the case, Howard provided solid legal counsel and great friendly advice (I told him that he’d make a great therapist!). He was a busy attorney but was generally accessible fairly quickly, even during weekends, which translates to “peace of mind” in difficult times. Another characteristic that stood out was that he made a conscious effort to keep the legal fees low even when he could have taken advantage of my desperation at times. How often can you say that?! All said and done, Howard was a terrific attorney and a consummate professional who genuinely cared about my case and the way he provided his services. He has my heartiest recommendation! Bravo, Howard, keep it up!

Howard was a phenomenal attorney in helping me through my divorce. He fought for what I needed and made the divorce such an easy process. He was a joy to work with through a difficult time. I wasn't sure what to expect with a legal proceeding such as this, but he made the process seem effortless and I was thrilled with the result. Thank you, Howard!

I have met Attorney Howard Lewis when I was in the middle of very difficult divorce and had lost confidence in my 1st attorney (who besides achieving almost no progress at best was making negotiations extremely difficult if not impossible). Attorney Lewis answered my email late Friday and met with me over the weekend. He listened, proposed a plan, discussed it with me in detail and, once I felt comfortable, nicely inserted himself in the case. Selecting him to replace my 1st attorney was definitely my lucky decision. Howard always made himself available to discuss and answer my questions or address my concerns, which, I confess, I had many.
Attorney Lewis is highly ethical and, besides being knowledgeable in legal matters, also is an excellent communicator. He knows and understands people. His EQ is very high. Howard was able to see through and understand issues at many levels and offered me good advice well beyond just legal aspects of the situation. All advice was given straight matter of fact but at the same time very kindly; I always felt that he cared about me and does what has to be done to protect my interests while making me feel easier and quite relieved. This was extremely important for me since I have a highly demanding and stressful job, sometimes too much when coupled with additional stress of the complicated divorce case.
My experience with other people in the office was also positive. They were always polite, professional, quickly handled all necessary tasks and were in general very supportive. I would like to specifically mention attorney Mindy Merkvan and legal assistant Raquel Camara who helped a lot.
Attorney Lewis is very hard-working – the strength I can truly appreciate. I remember him working full day on my case – on his Bday! I had no idea until he apologized for need to leave to make his own Bday dinner. I felt and still feel so much gratitude for all his efforts that helped me to survive a “marathon” divorce case. He was also very flexible with payment options, which helped a lot.

I am from Canada and my wife went back to MA to be with her parents during our separation and then she filed for divorce in MA .I hired Howard after long consideration and checking into several lawyers in the Boston MA Area. He made me feel like he could get a fair settlement and he was right. I couldn't be happier that I hired him. During this very stressful time Howard put me at ease (if he wasn't such a good attorney I would suggest he become a therapist). I hope I won't need legal help again but if I do I will definitely call Howard and his great legal team.
Thanks Howard and Ann for everything.

Howard represented me in a very unusual family matter and accomplished something unprecedented. I was constantly told by all lawyers I interviewed that there’d be no chance that what I was seeking could be obtained, but Howard had ideas, he was sharp and strategic, and his office took a personal interest in my case... they were willing to do what was important to me even though it was difficult and ambitious.
Posted by Susan, a Divorce client, Flag
I retained Howard after the working relationship with the attorney handling my divorce became a struggle. From our first meeting through to the final divorce decree, Howard remained steadfast with his approach to my case which was ultimately settled in my favor. He offered sound advice, was promptly responsive to my needs, patient with his guidance and relied on his firm grasp on the legal aspects of my case to settle it. Divorce is difficult enough to maneuver through and Howard kept the process focused and every question was worthy of his personal response. I am forever grateful of the advice he provided and the course his advice set me on for my future.

I highly recommend attorney Howard M. Lewis for all your family law needs. Mr. Lewis is an expert in his field who consistently obtains positive results for all of his clients. I know if I ever had a marital question, he would be the first person I would contact. I hope you consider him as so many do, for all of your child support, divorce and family law matters!

Howard represented me in a very difficult and emotional family law case where my spouse was trying to keep me from seeing the children through a serious of lies. We had to go to court several times and each time I could see we were making more and more progress until we finally won. In my opinion this is the best firm around, Howard is always accessible even by cell or text when I was worried and the fees were fair and the results were exactly what I dreamed of. Thank you Raquel, mindy, Ann, George and Howard.
Posted by Annya, a Divorce client, Flag
Howard handled my divorce case masterfully after my ex-husband served the divorce papers and refused to acknowledge my contribution to his business. Because I was entirely unfamiliar with the law or the divorce process, he explained each step with thoroughness and clarity. Howard has great empathy, care, and ability to communicate all intricacies of a complicated legal case. When it came time to deal with the opposing counsel -- he was courteous but very tough. You can be certain that he will fight hard for your case. There are not enough words to describe how professional, organized, and masterful he and his legal team are. A special thank you to legal assistant, Raquel, who always took time to respond promptly to many emails and questions. I can't imagine a better legal experience.

Howard represented me in my divorce. I am male. In a gender reversal from the norm I was the party to be granted alimony. Howard knew the law, wanted to try to resolve issues along the way, rather than start fights with opposing lawyers and was very helpful to me. Some things that I found made him special were his willingness to talk after hours, and sometimes on weekends when it made sense. Also the fact that he checked in on me regularly (still does). Howard will tell you if he is right for your type of case. If he is, you should give him serious consideration. He walks the walk.

My pathologically lier X-wife accused me with an interestingly fiction story. The accusation could have been worse, but Howard and his team did a fantastic job and exposed my X-wife’s made up stories to the court and the judge finally got it. I’ve to admit that Howard really knows what has to be told to the court, and always made sure the judge heard the truth. He and his team really proven to the court that all the accusation presented against me was all lies, and that made the judge to cut the divorce process short (when I short it was really short, I got divorced on the pre-trial day) with unexpected success and satisfaction results. Howard is also a kind of funny and a pleasure to spend time with. I know that I paid for the legal work but it worth it and I will always be grateful with the result and recommend Howard and his team. Last but not least, Howard’s team also did my immigration case for free of charge as a complementary which I’m indebted for the successful outcome as well.

I contacted Howard when I was served papers unexpectedly from my husband. From the start I felt that Howard was there to look out for my best interests, and he proved just that over the course of a difficult divorce, made so by my husband and his Attorney. He was very knowledgable and saw clearly what my husband was attempting to do and did not let me get taken advantage of. Howard and his staff were always there for me to answer any questions I had. I am pleased with the outcome of my divorce and I owe that to Howard, his staff and a special mention to Ann who could not have been kinder to me. I can now breath easier knowing this stressful time of my life is over and I have been protected. I would not only recommend Howard Lewis but would use him again in the future.
Thank you Howard and Staff...

Howard represented me during my entire divorce and the first thing I have to say with tears in my eyes he is my hero! my horrible ex husband tried not only to not provide for his child our beautiful little girl , he had the nerve to ask for custody ,not because he wanted her he just didn't want me to have her and he didnt want to pay. His lawyer tried to intimidate us but if you know Howard at all he isn't intimidated by anyone including the judge. We fought back and Howard blasted them in court with motions, affidavits and we even brought in witness's which scared the heck out of the other side and the court actually increased the child support amount decreased his visits and awarded me a larger percentage of the marital estate. Howard was always there for me and his whole offfice are not just incredible professionals they are caring and good people.

Howard helped me during a vey emotional time in my life and he truly was great. There were times when i said to him I dont care what it costs I want to show the court the truth- he said to me don't ever say that to a lawyer because they will take you up on it and your money is better spent on your son for his college. Howard still made sure the truth was put on the record and the judge knew it, my husband's attorney knew it and we got a huge judgment without spending a ton of money. He treated me like family and was always there for me. I have since referred two friends to him and they were very very happy! Thank you Howard, Raquel, Anne and special thanks to Deb who really was there for me right along with Howard and made me feel so special.
Posted by Jackie, a Divorce client, Flag
I was referred to Howard via a very close family friend. My divorce proceedings with a previous lawyer left me beside myself emotionally and feeling betrayed. In addition I had a child with growing special needs that had me overwhelmed. Then I met Howard who turned everything around from the prior judgment, custody, alimony, all of it. He made things right.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Howard Lewis. I've never met an attorney who showed more integrity, honesty, warmth, and genuine concern towards his clients. He is highly responsive, extremely, well versed in what he does and simply put, knows his stuff. If you want an attorney who does everything he promises and who genuinely cares about YOU. Howard is the lawyer to call. I would recommend him to anyone and to those who have used him on recommendation from me would tell you the same. They don't get any better than him or the others at his firm. He has only the best of staff. Everyone is WONDERFUL!!!!

I was referred to Lewis Leeper through my alumni network and after interviewing five firms I chose them. Howard was in charge of my trial work but the whole firm made me feel like part of a family. I am not exaggerating when I say that there were a couple of times I was worried about my case and out of no where I would get a text or an email update or just a simple "how are you doing" from Howard. I was thrilled with the results and feel very confident in unequivocally recommending Howard and his entire firm to anyone who wants a strong and aggressive attorney yet efficient and understanding of the emotional side. Great group of attorneys and staff! Special thank you to Raquel who is incredible!!!!!

I retained Lewis Leeper for my original divorce and was extremely satisfied with the quality of the legal services and the personal attention Howard gave me.

Howard was my second attorney and he finished my divorce and accomplished everything I wanted in a fraction of the time my first attorney had the case and surprisingly his final bill for doing all of the actual hard court work was less than my first attorneys and Howard worked at least four times as much. He is very honest, extremely knowledgeable about divorce law, the courts and the judges. I will always recommend him.

I hired Howard after my husband filed for a divorce. I interviewed 4 lawyers and Howard was the only one who gave me real answers and fully explained the new alimony reform laws to me and how they would afffect me. He told me exactly what would happen how much income the court and my husbands attorney said I would or could make and he prepared me for the entire case. The judge actually said to my husbands attorney that they were wrong and we were right. I always only wanted what was fair and in the end that is exactly what I recieved and it is enough to be a full time mother and have my own life.

I hired Lewis & Leeper when my husband filed a complaint for modification trying to reduce child support-Howard called me back right away and we went over the facts. He told me not to worry but I was so scared. He was right we fought back and after only two court appearances we won and the judge dismissed my ex's complaint. Howard and his office always kept me informed and I personally feel he is an excellent attorney. Money was a real concern for me and in the end he actually refunded the remaining retainer which was a nice surprise He kept his promise and protected me. I am happy to give a good review and to be referral source. Thank you!

Howard was recomended to me by our business attorney as I needed a specialist in divorce law.

Howard exceeded my expectaions, he was always accessible and produced the results I needed.

howard took over my divorce after my first attorney was being pushed around by my husband (now ex) and his attorney. Howard immediately reviewed the financials and confirmed what i knew all along that my husbands brokerage firm and their lawyers were deferrring compensation and hiding stock options. we gave them one week to come clean or howard said we could bury them but that would mean putting them out of business which wouldnt help me ! they caved in and i got a very large alimony offer which we leveraged into a great setttlement . Howard always kept his cool and he really took care of me.

Attorney Lewis represented me in the probate court for a contempt and did very good work. We won the motion and since then my husband has made all the payments on time and even sometimes early.

I have recommended him since on several other occasions and I know for certain that those I recommended him to we're equally satisfied with his legal services. Howard fought hard for me when my wife's lawyer started to panic and make up stories and he was able to show the court her lies and the judge finally got it.

Thank you Howard for all of your hard work and complete dedication to my case. I know that my divorce was very difficult and looking back you stood by me and fought for me when I didn't even want to fight for what was rightfully mine. I will forever be grateful to you,Raquel , Ann and Mindy.

I retained Howard in 2009 for my original divorce and he really did great work for me. My ex then stopped paying my support and I called the office. He immediately filed a contempt and we went to court. I won and the judge actually yelled at my ex in court. Howard's office is very well run and they treat so well.

My marriage was miserable,the court seemed medieval but it could have been worse if it wasn't for the fantastic service and hard work of Howard, Ann and Raquel, they all did a great job for me and in court Howard was like a pit bull when necessary. I felt like my side was always told. The entire office was there for me whether by phone, email or text I always felt connected and cared for. I havent felt this happy and carefree in years. I know that I paid for the legal work but it was more than that and I will always be grateful and recommend Howard.

I retained the law firm for my divorce and at the time was very scared and very vulnerable. I interviewed several firms and chose Howard's. The team of lawyers I worked with was always there for me and Raquel the paralegal assigned to my case was incredible. Howard was always there for me in court and his staff took care of me with the same care. I highly recommend them. Thank you.

I hired Howard to help take over my divorce and child custody case. He was always fully prepared for court and made sure the judge heard my side of the story (my prior counsel wasn't able to do that). There were times Howard brought associates to court to help and I was only billed for one lawyer that made me feel that they cared about me and the results not just the fees. The entire office is very accommodating and very knowledgeable about the courts the clerks and the judges.

Howard represented me in my original divorce and did a very good job. I then was served with contempt papers two years later and I had no idea what to do. I still had his number in my phone so I called him on Saturday. We talked and on Monday we filed an answer and motion to dismiss. We went to court a few weeks later and we got the complaint dismissed. Howard is a great lawyer and now a lifetime friend.
Posted by Melissa, a Divorce client, Flag
Howard was my divorce attorney and he was truly great. He always took the time to listen to me and did what I wanted. He fought back for me when my husband and his lawyer were not telling the truth and got the judge to hear the truth. We took the depositions and scared my husband so bad he settled as we found all the hidden money from his restaurants. Howard never gave up on me and even gave me his cell phone.
Posted by Terri, a Divorce client, Flag
I hired Howard after discharging my first attorney because she didn't listen to me. I was referred to him through my thesis advisor at Harvard. I was afraid that because he was fairly famous that he would be expensive and that he would pass me off to one of associates. I was completely wrong. His prices were incredibly reasonable and he was in court personally each and every time. we developed a plan and strategy together. Agreed to stick to it and it worked. Howard is by far one of the finest professionals in Boston.

Howard represented me in a contempt when my wife said I wasn't complying with the divorce judgement. We printed off the provisions in the document but they refused to listen. So we went to court and won. He also got me attorney fees and I haven't heard from ex since-Howard really did an outstanding job and I highly recommend him.

Howard handled my co workers divorce and she raved about him. So when I needed a lawyer I interviewed a few and chose Howard. He handled everything but most importantly for me he treated me like a real person and when it came to fighting for my rights he kicked but. All in all I got a very fair settlement and joint custody which means the world to me.

Howard represented me in my divorce and he was incredibly professional and always attentive. Above all else he got results without dragging the divorce out or making it worse. He solved problems right away and put my husbands attorney in her place. I then hired him to modify the agreement when my husband tried to hide his bonuses and he said a contempt was faster and less time consuming. He was right. We didn't even have to go yo court they gave in as soon as he filed. Howard is a great lawyer and a great business advisor.

Attorney Lewis is an outstanding individual, who is dedicated to his client and persistent in his handling of the case. My case was extremely complicated with a history of 5 years of heavy litigation with the other party, who is excessively difficult to deal with. Attorney Lewis took the time to get to know me as a person and a parent. He understood my interest in my chlild's well being and helped me figure out what the best plan of action would be in order to get this situation under control, and then to work toward resolution. Attorney Lewis actively and persistently pursued justice and closure in my case, which is a case that most attorneys would not have accepted in the first place. His experience as a defense attorney enabled him to swiftly protect my better interest and most importantly the best interest of my child. I have recommended Howard Lewis, without hesitation to my friends and peers and I will continue to do so.

I was unhappy for so many years but very afraid of all the stories I heard about how men like me lost everything after a divorce. I researched lawyers and my coworker at Harvard told me about his lawyer getting ruined by his wife's lawyer so I thought I should hire that person. I found Howard quite easily and after talking with him for five minutes I knew he was the real deal. He is very intelligent and also has common sense. He does what is in the clients best interests not the courts or the lawyers. I truly felt he completely absorbed himself in my case and was 100 percent there for me. We negotiated a very honest and fair settlement through strength and not fear. He was always over prepared and knew our case and there case inside out. If you need a great lawyer he is then one.

Howard represented me in probate court for my divorce and did an excellent job. He was always available when I needed him and gave me great advice.

I thought most lawyers were jerks. Howard completely changed my opinion of lawyers. I was referred to him by my professor at MIT and after meeting him I felt a thousand times better. He walked me through each part of the divorce and was always there by phone email or text. He helped me during the worst part of my life and even months after the divorce he would call to check up on me. I got a great settlement which made sure I wasn't worried about money. When my husbands attny became rude to me one day Howard absolutely destroyed him in a debate and after that we closed the case. He truly cares about his clients and I would recommend him forever. He is a great lawyer and a great soul. I hope someday I can help someone the way he helped me. If it wasn't for him and my parents I probably would have given up. If you want a referral call me. Howard is the best there is.

Howard represented me in my original divorce and did great work for me and my children. The child support was fair and the alimony made sure I could live the same lifestyle I had during my marriage. He also represented me when my husband and his psycho attorney tried to take away the deal during modification, but Howard kept calm and promised me all would be ok and it was, we got the judge to dismiss their complaint. Then he represented me when I had to file a contempt when my husband stopped paying for certain school related activities that he promised to in the separation agreement. His billing was always fair and he always returned my calls and emails right away. He is one of a kind and I recommend him very highly. In my opinion he is the best. In fact he teaches other lawyers how to handle divorces. His offices are convenient and very nice and his team is always helpful.
Posted by Stephen, a Divorce client, Flag
what can you say about a divorce attorney who always either immediately took or returned my calls and emails, night, weekends and would meet me according to my schedule day or night, weekends, holidays even with no notice. What can you say about someone who never waivered from my case even when i took my frustrations out on him and yelled, he somehow knew that I needed to vent and even thought I was paying him to protect me during my divorce he gave me just as good, if not better advice than my therapist and friends. Howard helped me make good decisions when i was about to make poor ones, in fact stupid ones, he stopped me and stood by me and made sure I understood the big picture and the small details. When it came down to the separation agreement, he took all the time I needed to fully understand each and every position. My wife broke my heart but at least working with Howard over the time period, I healed and she didn't break or take our bank accountant. In fact I came out way ahead financially. My son is enrolled in college and it is completely paid for with plenty of extra money so he can finish and I am finally seeing the light and am actually truly happy for the first time in 18 years. I wish I had more space to write because I honestly feel Howard is the best there is. In my opinion he is he greatest family law/divorce attorney in MA and I am proud to now being able not only to call him my attorney but my friend. If you don't hire him, you are making a mistake, because he is great on so many levels. He understood the trauma of the process and helped me through it with great legal advice and compassion. They don't come any better than him.

Howard told me that if I was right we should stand and fight back. He was right. We fought back and won. He is one of Bostons finest attorneys and just as good a businessman. Howard saved me a lot of money and mor importantly time. Money you can make time you can never replace. I wholehearedly recommend Howard as a great divorce attorney.

I took his advice and we got a great result even though it was a difficult time for me he made it better. Thank you.

I travel a lot for my company so I had to rely on attorney referrals. My corporate counsel gave me 3 names and I chose Howard. Best decision I made in a long time. He did everything he promised and more. I value his opinion and his counsel He kept his cool when my wife's attorney started lying in court and made sure I kept mine. That alone won a major hearing and changed the whole case. He is a great lawyer and a very honorable man. Very tough and very fair. I recommend him.

Howard helped me on a modification of my divorce. He fixed my agreement so that it was fair and not as one sided as before.

He was the only attorney to finally shut my husband and his attorney up and get the judge to listen to my side of the story and when she did listen and howard made his arguments we won the case. I have recommended him to at least 5 other friends male and female and they are just as pleased. He is great.

Howard helped me prove to the court my ex was lying and making more money than he listed on his financial statements.

My daughter is now in medical school and I am so proud of her. Since then I have referred many cases to his office and we still stay in touch by email. It's not uncommon to get a quick email sometimes from Howard just asking how i am doing and you know what he really wants to know. Wish I could say more great things bit I'm not a very good writer.

Then she went to court and made up more lies. Howard was recommended to me by a woman work with and we met and developed a strategy together it was work but in the end the ro was vacated and I got to buy her out of the house. I pay a fair amount of child support which I have no problem with but the best thing is she didn't get a dime of alimony because Howard uncovered all her lies. I wish I could do more for him. If you don't hire him you better pray the other side doesn't. He is awesome.

Howard handled my divorce case from the beginning to the end with the utmost class and dignity he promised. The opposing attorney tried to make a bigger deal out of certain things and he didn't allow me to fall into that trap.

Howard is a great attorney and true gentleman. Anyone who wants a great counselor and litigator must hire Howard.

Attorney lewis represented me last year in my divorce. My wife of almost 14 years had an affair and then filed for a divorce. She tried to take our family home by filing a false restraining order and then keep my kids away from me. I called Howard on the weekend and by Monday he was already working on our plan. We won every motion and even though she lied and said she couldn't work the judge said she had to try and in the end she was forced to work like everyone else in this country. I felt our judgement was very fair. I was always happy to pay child support for my kids but I didn't have to pay alimony because she didn't need it. Howard is a great lawyer and a great person I would and I have recommended him.

The second was a contempt because my ex kept trying to control me by paying late etc. We won the contempt and since then everything has been smooth. I feel 20 years younger and I am happy. I would unconditionally and emphatically recommend attorney Howard lewis and his entire law firm. They always took my call, met with me in one of their offices which was most convenient for me and all emails were returned right away and on weekends and nights.

Posted by Karen, a Divorce client, Flag
Howard handled my divorce recently and I cannot say enough about his firm. I thought my husband's lawyer was going to be tough but Atty Lewis really put him in his place. He was also really helpful at putting the real issues in perspective for me while he handled the minutiae. I couldn't be happier with the results.

I have been married and self employed for over 20 years. You can imagine the ups and downs that I have been through. Howard has been a solid, trusworthy and patient ally to my family and businesses.
During the great times Howard has helped my businesses grow, acquire real estate and quickly remedy anyone who tried to hurt us.
When times were tougher we counted on him even more. Howard has defended my businesses, my wife and I vigorously with amazing result. Best of all when it was time for an amicable divorce Howard was impartial. He met with both of us individually then together, reviewing all options thoroughly.
Ten years later my wife and I are still together. Our business is flourishing, our assets are still ours and growing. Definately in part to Howards sound judgment and perseverence in many legal areas. Since the first day we met Howard so many years ago we have felt safe and protected, which has given us the freedom to do what we want in our lives. You can't put a price on that type of security just know that we are grateful and please accept out thanks.

Howard helped me with my divorce and did an excellent job. Althought this was a very stressful and difficult time for me and my family he always took the time to explain things to me, he always took my calls right away or returned my messages quickly, many time we spoke at night or on the weekends. He made me feel that my problems were important to him. He helped me receive a large settlement and I will always be grateful.

I went through an exceptionally difficult divorce three years ago and couldn't have made it through the ordeal without Howard's professional expertise and personal kindness. He treated the case as if it were his own. I couldn't ask for a more intelligent, hard working and well meaning attorney. I wouldn't hesitate to have Howard represent me in any legal proceeding.

Posted by Jacqueline, a Child Support client, Flag
I received the best advice from Howard and always felt that he was truly listening to me. I've had attorneys in the past that would simply ignore or dismiss what I felt were important issues to be addressed in my case. This frustrated me and made me very upset during some very emotionally charged times. On the other hand, Howard would calmly explain what issues were important and why and why some simply were not important and a waste of time and money to pursue. It was very reassuring. My case would always bring up a lot of emotion and he was the voice of reason. I never felt that he was trying to make things more complicated than they needed to be. I really appreciated that especially considering the current financial situation I am in. I just got the feeling he was really looking out for me.
Posted by Rebecca Fitzgerald, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
Mr. Lewis has been my family's attorney for multiple criminal and immigration issues. Starting with the first case, Howard knows that law, was able to quickly focus in on a winnable defense and is a shark in the court room. We have used him for several other situations since including immigration issues related to one of our most valuable employees. In addition to his legal expertise, Howard is incredibly responsive - doesn't matter if it is during the work week or on weekends/nights, Howard will always answer the phone for questions and to discuss our cases. I would (and have) recommended Howard to many business colleagues and friends.

I am pleased to recommend Attorney Lewis. He was my attorney for my divorce matter and made a very difficult situation a lot easier.

I definitely recommend this attorney.

Mr Lewis was able to settle my case in a very satisfactory manor prior to my going before the judge. My case was reduced to a trespass fine. There were other first time charges that could have had serious consequences for me down the road and those were dropped due to Mr Lewis handling my case. I would use him again without hesitation.

I was in a desperate state because my son had been arrested. I couldn't find anyone to help or even listen long enough to find out what to do. A friend referred me to Howard. He called me after hours, and I knew right away that he was different. Howard cares. He listened. He treated us as individuals, not as files. He met my son, and saw that he was a great kid, who just made mistakes, but wanted to turn his life around. Howard fought to give my son that chance. Howard is confident, and very knowledgeable. It was a very long, tough process that we went through, and Howard and his staff kept us informed. They never gave up. We wouldh't of made it through this without Howard. He gave me my son back. He's the best of the best.

Howard M. Lewis has assisted us and our businesses, (retail office supplies, commercial printing, and real estate management, all corporations), with several legal issues, in both the personal and corporate areas. His understanding of the law, his ability to get to the crucial point in question, his zeal to effectively represent our position and help us prevail served us very well in all the matters which required his expertise. One aspect which clearly set him apart from other busy professionals is his usually immediate response to requests for information and updates. His ability to acquire and maintain acompetent multi-lingual staff also recommends him.

I have referred him to family members as well as co workers. I have worked with and against attorney Lewis in my deakings as a probation officer. I have found him to be hard working, honest, reliable, knowledgeable and fair. I would never recommend him to family and co workers if I didn't believe in his ability.

I was referred to Howard Lewis at a very desperate moment in my life where my son was arrested and surprisingly being criminally charged due to a untruthful act; I contacted Mr. Lewis, after business hours, where he promptly returned my call being confident, understanding and compassion able to my sonâ€™s best interest, and to the situation I was going through. When he said â€œdonâ€™t worry, everything is going to be alrightâ€, he meant it. Thanks to Mr. Lewis availability, advices, positivity, honesty, kindness, and directness to the court and to us, my son is free, and best of all, he can now see everything in a different aspect. We were treated like if we were part of the same family. I knew that my sonâ€™s life mattered to him, and as a mother, that is all that I needed.

Mr. Lewis has been my families attorney for years.. When my son found himself facing serious criminal charges in a neighboring state, Mr. Lewis was immediately available, traveling out of state to appear with him in court within 24 hours. Additionally, Mr. Lewis was able to broker a resolution that greatly reduced the sentence. He also remained committed to my son, visiting him several times, aiding in having him transferred to Massachusetts, and guiding him through a successful parole process. I found Mr. Lewis to be highly competent, completely professional, and thoroughly committed to the best interests of his client. I have recommended him for a variety of legal matters to friends and family. To a person, they all have been extremely pleased with his performance.

Howard was referred to me by a family member when I first decided I wanted to separate from my ex-husband a couple of years ago. I e-mailed Howard to introduce myself and let him know of the referral and he was back in touch with me within the half hour and we set up a meeting for that same week. I work in a law firm and I can tell you that the typical lawyer is not this responsive. Howard walked me step by step through the whole process as to how things would happen. We kept in touch through that whole first year of my separation. He was always giving me good, sensible advice as my ex and I navigated our way through this difficult process. When we were finally ready to file for divorce, Howard took care of everything. He always had my best interest in mind, despite the fact that I just wanted to get it done and was ready to give up certain things I was entitled to. He always reminded me that I had to secure my financial future for when my children were grown and out of the house. I am grateful for his sound advice. He was able to draft and negotiate a Separation Agreement that was beneficial to me and accepted by my ex. We were able to keep things amicable thanks to Howard and that is making my life and my childrens lives a lot easier and happier in the long run.
Posted by Marty, a Divorce client, Flag
Honestly, I don't know where to begin to describe Howard Lewis. I owe so much to him for turning my life around. I had been struggling since 2002, with an abusive ex-husband. I had worked, or tried to work with three divorce attorneys who were more concerned about the "hit" and then "running." They didn't care about me, and were so intimidated by my ex, who happens to be a brilliant, controlling, successful business man. The collection of their fees was paramount.
Within the last couple of years, I was introduced to Howard and his staff, and now my ex is "running." Every year a new modification is brought before the court by my ex, and Howard has thoroughly prepared for the challenge, professionally delivered his argument to the court and has won for me! The tide has changed.
Howard always has time to listen, the clock is not ticking as with most attorneys. He is the very first attorney who truly understands and cares about my life and my children. I have so much respect for him and his office. They are truly a "team" of professionals that "get it."
As a result of my experience, I have felt very comfortable recommending Howard Lewis and his office to many friends and clients. I can honestly say not one person has been disappointed. In fact, one dear friend said she could finally sleep at night... the "looking over her shoulder," has stopped.
My only regret is that I did not meet Howard sooner. The first several years of my divorce were a waste of time, money and full of negative
energy. That has all changed.
After my first meeting with Howard, I walked away for the very first time with a strong sense of SECURITY. I knew my life would be changing for the better and it has. I owe so much to him,
I had a great night's sleep that night, and it hasn't stopped!

In February 2008, I was involved in a motor vehicle accident on my way home from work. I called Howard (and his team) because I knew the great job they did for a couple of my friends in other cases.

The office environment is pleasant and hospitable.
In the end, I was VERY pleased with the settlement I received because of Lewis & Leeper's dedication and Howard's personal involvement. Would I use Howard again. YES !!! I have. I highly recommend that you call Howard first if you are in need of legal services or advice !!

You can't go wrong hiring him as your attorney.

Having worked with several other lawyers, I found Howard Lewis to be the most honest and upfront out of all of them. He response was always quick, even on weekends and he was able to answer my questions efficiently. If for some reason Howard felt there was someone who could better assist me, he was always prepared to recommend someone that he trusted and had previously worked with. Howard is always the first person I turn to for any legal advice.

Mr. Lewis was exceptional in handling my divorce case recently. I had many questions to ask since this was the first time going through a divorce. Howard took the time to review all of the different scenarios with me and help me to come to a finalization with my ex wife which was fair and reasonable. When Howard was in court in the morning and I needed to speak to him, his secretary also handled everything with expectional care and concern. I always received a callback from Howard the same day. I had a specific question pertaining to the "cooling off" period and about assets being evenly distributed. Mr. Lewis fought for me and made sure that I was not taken to the "cleaners" by my ex wife. His fees were reasonable and I never felt as though I was ever being taken advantage of during difficult times. Thank you Mr. Lewis for giving me a new beginning in life!!!

Lewis explained my charge clearly and in terms i could understand. He actually had a second lawyer in his firm on my case as well. It made me feel very secure in the fact that my case was being handled by a Pro. He recommended and put me in contact with a top notch Private Investigator. Lewis led me thru the process with a professionalism that was very reassuring. He always took my phone calls,he always answered my questions. I was never left wondering if he was actively working on my case. When we went to court each time he explained what i could expect to see happen. He never made promises or got my hopes up. He was steadfast and very confident in my outcome. On the day of trial i was completely prepared by Lewis on what was to be expected of me and how i was to be involved. .
When the Trial started i was amazed by his defense. It was apparent from the beginning that he had done his homework. It was not just lip service. I felt like Lewis actually cared about me and my outcome.
Everything he explained to me might happen at trial--did happen.
I was never caught off guard or surprised. I just can't explain in words how confident i was that i had chosen the right Lawyer. WE WON THE CASE!!
Howard Lewis is a true professional. He is smart, compassionate,and a great communicator. But most of all he actually respected the amount of money i spent to hire him.
Posted by Derek, a Litigation client, Flag
At the risk of sounding cynical, but in the interest of full disclosure, I honestly dislike attorneys because in my experience each has had a really offensive attitude of somehow being better than we mortals. In addition I have been distrustful of lawyers because, again in my experience, they seem more interested in dragging out an expensive legal process than working toward prompt resolution. I preface my remarks about Howard because he stands alone in my mind as "not your typical lawyer."
I have known Howard for nearly ten years and in that time have found him to be highly knowledgeable and honest enough to tell me when he doesn't know the answer to a question. In that rare instance he remembers to research the answer and get back to me promptly. He understands the relationship I wish to have with my attorney and has exceeded my expectations in that regard.
When it is time to "do battle" with another attorney and/or go to court, that is when I most appreciate being Howard's client. He knows law, he understand how the system works, and he knows how to get things done. It has been interesting to me over the years that someone who can be so pleasant in his dealings with me, can be so dogged in his practice when engaged in a legal matter with opposing counsel.
Howard's work ethic is second to none. It is not unusual to receive an email from him over the weekend, on holidays, or late at night. He works assiduously at his craft because I really believe he enjoys what he does for a living and enjoys helping his clients. I can recall one instance a few years agon when he was in court for one matter and happened to run into an acquaintance of mine. She was in court for a relatively routine matter, but without counsel. For no other reason than he is so kind, Howard took a break from what he was doing to accompany her to the appropriate area of the court house and assisted her through her business there. And he never sent her a bill. That is simply and precisely the kind of person he is.
I'm pleased to provide this review of Howard because I couldn't be happier being his client and knowing that he represents me. I consider him to be a first class attorney, but more importantly a friend of my family. If you are considering a new relationship with an attorney, I am pleased to recommend Howard to you without reservation. He is not "your typical lawyer."

Our family has used Attorney Howard Lewis for several cases over the last 5-6 years with consistently positive results. We have referred several others and heard the same positive feedback. Howard Lewis is knowledgable, personable and professional. Both he and his firm have provided personal attention and were clearly dedicated to our legal and financial interests. Having worked with several other much larger law firms in the past I now know this personal attention by an individual attorney is unique. I saw that Attorney Lewis has the experience, expertise and demeanor required to excel in the courtroom when necessary and the finesse and approachability to get results through mediation when its possible to save time and money for his clients. I have worked with Attorney Lewis on different types of cases including a post nuptual agreement, several contract reviews, a minor criminal case and a liability case.

I found Howard Lewis to be extremely diligent with his efforts on getting my divorce. He saved me a great deal of money and time by combining one court visit to get my entire divorce done, he saw the opportunity and seized it. His prices were very reasonable. I was extremely surprised at the professionalism of not only him but his staff as well. He and his staff always took my call and resolved what ever issues were at hand immediately. I would highly recommend this law office and Howard Lewis as well to do the best job - quickly, diligently, efficiently and most importantly effectively. This is a lawyer that is not in it for the dollar he is in it because he cares greatly about his clients. I went and spoke with several lawyers before choosing Howard Lewis and decided to go with him because of his genuine caring and all the time he took with me at the initial meeting. He worked very hard for me and did a fantastic job. He also saved me a great deal of emotional suffering as well because of his efficiency. I am lucky that I found him, I was able to not be burdened by large legal fees. I would HIGHLY recommend him as the Best Lawyer in New England!

It is a privilege for us to review Howard Lewis on this web site.
We are semi-professional, working parents. We raised our children in a wonderful community with very good schools. Nothing could have prepared us to learn that our son had several, very serious charges against him.
A professional in the legal field recommended Attorney Howard M. Lewis to us. He told us that Attorney Lewis could help our child. He was right! Attorney Lewis has the knowledge and experience to get the job done. He is hard working. He has the skills necessary to deliver the best possible result.
From the very first moment we contacted Attorney Lewis we had a partner. We could sense that he knew what we were feeling and fearing. We felt that he shared the same goal that we had for our son: The best possible result.
The legal system can be complicated and frightening. Attorney Lewis is knowledgeable and very experienced with the law. He was able to break down the charges, explain the laws and what the impact of each one could be. He protected our sonâ€™s rights. Using his extensive knowledge and understanding of law he outlined to us the strategies he would be using. As the case continued his experience was invaluable to us. He was consistently prepared for every meeting and every court appearance. He always prepared us so that we would know what to expect. Attorney Lewis is very detail oriented and precise. He knew what to do and did it perfectly.
Attorney Lewis worked extremely hard on behalf of our son. He has surrounded himself and his clients with highly skilled and dedicated team members. His practice hosts a wide range of lawyers and support staff so that every aspect of the case is addressed. The amount of work that he and his team did outside of the courtroom is still astounding to us. On more than one occasion Attorney Lewis used his problem solving skills, called upon his vast resources and expert colleagues to help our son avoid residual complications. He consistently led us forward.
Attorney Lewis is an outstanding communicator. He was able to exchange information with us and our son. We were so pleased to see our son open up to him. It was important to have a solid working relationship during this process. His excellent communication skills were called upon several times throughout the process interacting with the other agencies involved with the case. Attorney Lewis listens.
On a more personal note, we found Attorney Lewis to be professional at all times. We could see that he is respected by his peers in the profession. In the years weâ€™ve known him, he has always conducted himself with the highest level of integrity. Hard working, he has built a successful law practice and business. He is also warm and compassionate. His personal attention to our sonâ€™s case is unprecedented in any other situation we have experienced. He responded promptly to every phone call and answered every question. We felt as though we were his only customer and that he was committed to doing his very best to help our son. We trusted him completely and he did not let us down. He delivered the best possible result.
My husband and I have and will continue to confidently recommend Attorney Howard M. Lewis to any family or individual who finds themselves in need of expert legal representation.
My husband and I are enormously grateful for all that Attorney Lewis has done for our family. We remain thankful.

Howard was referred to me by a friend. I used Attorney Lewis in a child support case and he fought for me for everything that was deserved and at no point did I doubt his ability. He did an amazing job for me and made it so I will basically never have to do this fight again. I highly recommend him and have recommended him to friends also. He is easy to talk to and listens to everything that you have to say and most importantly I never felt judged by him. I highly recommend Attorney Lewis to anyone who wants to feel 100% protected in the Court Room and wants to feel confident that this Attorney will do everything he can for you. I walked into his office a nervous wreck thinking there was no way I could win, totally stressed out and walked out feeling like the weight of the world was taken off my shoulders and he did everything he said he was able to do AND more!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Howard Lewis. I've never met an attorney (and I had 2 previous to Howard) who showed more integrity, honesty and warmth and caring towards his clients. He is highly responsive, extremely well versed in what he does and simply put, knows his stuff! In a very difficult time he put my mind at ease and accomplished more than I could have asked for. If you want an attorney who does everything he promises and who genuinely cares about YOU, Howard is the lawyer to call. I would recommend him to anyone and to those who have used him on recommendation from me would tell you the same. They don't get any better than him or the others at his firm. He has only the best of staff. Everyone is WONDERFUL!!!!

I was fortunate to have Howard recommended to me by a friend. He was willing to see me and discuss my case just days after I first called him and I never felt like the "clock was running". He made me feel completely at ease immediately, even when discussing very personal aspects of my case. I recieved a settlement that was far more than I had expected and was so well written that I, having been to court since the settlement, have found it to be iron-clad. Howard is extremely straight-forward. He is also kind, very well mannered, and extremely knowledgeable and more than capable of going against the biggest names in divorce law. Whenever I had any sort of question, it was answered almost immediately without any prejudice towards my ignorance of the lawl. I never felt rushed nor did I feel like I was being charged with abandon- much to the contrary. His entire staff quickly became a support network for me and I consider myself very lucky to have had them on my side. I truly would recommend Howard to anyone going through a divorce, especially when large amounts of money are at stake and children are involved.

Attorney Lewis did an extraordinary job with regard to my very, very complicated divorce case, in which there was much-at-stake: assets, reputation (I, myself, am an attorney), and so on!

I hired Mr. Lewis to handle 2 separate cases for me. One case involved a dispute with my previous employer over an employment contract and compensation. The other involved a case with a hired contractor who failed to perform the work agreed upon. Both cases were handled with utmost professionalism and settled very quickly. It was very apparent early on in my dealings with Mr. Lewis, that he is a knowledgeable attorney with lots of professional contacts in all areas of the law. He is very quick to respond to his clients and will not lead you into any sort of false pretenses, he is excellent at explaining all angles of your case, and potential outcomes. I would absolutely hire him to do any further legal work for me. I have 20 years of experience in Risk Management working for some of the largest Wall Street firms in the U.S., and have extensive dealings with inside and outside counsel....lots of which were the largest and most powerful law firms in the country. None of which compared to Mr. Lewis' professionalism, client courtesy and depth of legal knowledge. He truly is an outstanding attorney.

I have known Atty Lewis for several years. It has been my absolute pleasure to have found an attorney that honestly listened to what my problem was and took action before I ever left his office. His immediate phone call and follow-up written response was all it took to resolve the issue and thus save me alot of money .
Because of the way he handled my case I have sent several friends to Atty Lewis. Every single one of them has been more than pleased with how they were treated by himself and his very professional staff .One friend had a marrital issue and had seen several attorneys which caused her to spend thousand upon thousands of dollars and the issues were not resolved until I introduced her to Atty Lewis. Every time I see her she tells me how grateful she is for my introducing her to Howard.
I would recommend Atty Lewis to everyone I know whether there problem was civil, marrital, criminal or any type of litigation. Once you meet him you will be immediately impressed with his sincerity, honesty and intelligence.

I have to thank Howard for helping me through a difficult process - I was dealing with a divorce decree which was totally unjust - took care of one child and not the other! And, who wants to go back to court! Howard and his team were right on top of it - Howard knew what steps to take to get in front of the judge - helped me through a modification that I was dragging my feet on - and has a great demeanor in court, with his clients and with other attorneys - yet he knows how to find the achilles heel! Highly recommend him - he does really care about his clients - and he is a bright attorney!

Being an attorney myself, I am highly selective with who I hire as counsel and to whom I refer cases. Howard is the attorney I trust with my own legal matters as well as those of close friends and colleagues. He has a plethora of knowledge and is a zealous advocate. I would highly recommend him.

I have worked with Howard Lewis and his firm, Lewis & Leeper, on several occasions, for both business and personal matters. Howard uniquely combines intelligence in matters of the law with practical solutions and street smarts, a formula that really delivers for his clients.
Howard is honest when assessing a situation and will not lead a client on, simply to bill hours. He is an true advocate for his clients and continually exceeds client expectations. I have always found Howard perfectly prepared, having conducted extensive research on what ever legal matter he is addressing. He is smart and competitive, which gives him an edge over his competition.
Howard is great about communicating with his clients and works hard to be sure his clients are fully prepared for difficult court appearances. He is a compassionate defender of his clients and a formidable opponent in court. He also knows when compromise is going to benefit his client in the long term, and is not afraid to counsel his clients accordingly.
Howard also manages a strong team of attorneys and paralegals who serve clients, all of whom possess a remarkable combination of strong legal and interpersonal skills.
I have recommended Howard and his firm on several occasions and look forward to continuing to do so in the future.

Howard was a wonderful attorney while I was going through a terrible divorce. He was very kind and compassionate to me in addition to being very knowledgable about the system.He took me step by step through the process and made sure I understood every point before moving forward to the next. I have referred a couple of friends to talk to him.

I was fortunate enough to hire Howard to handle my divorce. How luck was I?! He was extremely supportive, listened to my concerns, always made himself available to me when I needed questions answered and helped me to get a great resolution.

Attorney Lewis helped me with my divorce and basically saved my life. I have my home, my children and enough child support and alimony to live a nice life.

Howard helped me with my divorce during the worst time of my life. I thought that I was going to lose everything including my mind. He guided me through the process, explained everythign to me and gave me a sense of hope and strength which allowed me to fight back and collect enough child support and alimony to keep my home for my kids. He always returned my calls even on the weekends and made sure that each decision I made was my decision and that I was not rushed or felt bullied by the other side. He changed my life.

Attorney Lewis answered all of my divorce questions, worked with my wife's attorney and made sure to solve our problems without making them worse. He made sure that my wifes's attorney did not create more legal work than was necessary and his fees were very reasonable and worth every dollar. I highly reccommend him.

I hired attorney Lewis after my first lawyer was losing my case. Howard came in, fought hard for me, pushed the other attorney back and we were able to get the results I had hoped for.

Attorney Lewis fought very hard for me during my divorce process when I was very emotional and I needed good advice. He gave me excellent advice and protected me from my ex and myself, and he made sure I recieved the maximum alimony and child support.

Howard represented me during a criminal investigation for manslaughter and if he wasn't there, I know I would have said something that would have made it worse, the charges were serious but I knew in my heart I didn't do anything wrong, but there was an accident and someone was killed. If it wasn't for Howard I would probably be in jail now.

Attorney Lewis represented me before a federal grand jury and his presence and advice allowed me to remain calm and answer the questions the U.S. Attorney asked without getting in trouble. I was never charged after the testimony.

I am an attorney myself, but, could never, myself, have handled the difficulties that Mr. Lewis helped me with. I was married once before, for 17 years, with no issues when I separated the first time. However, my second marriage separation was frought with difficulties, of which, only Howard could help me out with. Since then, he has become the only litigating attorney (whether for criminal, divorce, personal injury, or, other) that I refer all of my own clients, and, other personal contacts, for excellence in his field.

Our son made a mistake and was charged with Traficking Drugs, he fell in with the wrong people and was now facing mandatory jail time. Howard worked with our whole family for almost two years and eventually the case was dismissed. He saved my son's future and we are very thankful.

I was being threatened by many sources one of which was my own federal government and was subpoened before a federal grand jury. From the moment I hired Howard, he took control and ownership of the case, slowed everyone's momentum so that we could breath and work on a solution and we ultimately resolved everything. Thanks again.

I was going through a difficult divorce and fired my first two attorneys, I hired Attorney Lewis and he organzied a plan to attack the other side, prepared for trial, and we actually tried the divorce case my other attorneys were pushing me to settle. After trial I received double what was offered me and got to keep my home. Thanks

Attorney Lewis took over my divorce case, fixed all of the mistakes my first lawyer made and made sure that i was financially protected. He always returned my calls and was prepared for court each time. He was clearly more experienced and more aggresive than the other attorney my spouse hired and the court new that.

I was accused of a very serious crime involving a lying girlfriend and facing sex offender registration, loss of my career and my freedom, he believed me when no one else would and when we went to trial, she took the stand and the jury could tell she was lying. I was found not guilty after two weeks of hard work and trial. He even allowed me to pay over one year on a payment plan with no interest.
