    • I do not recommend Matthew Howell.
    • I hired Matthew more than 3 years ago.
    • Matthew handled my Litigation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Hired this attorney. He was not aggressive in pursuing my case. He took a long time to file the case and stay with moving it along. A motion I requested filed was not filed, as a result certain considerations of the case were not reviewed by the Court. He however, did tell me prior to Court, that the particular motion had been filed.
    For information, I had to call and email him, and often did not receive copies of filings concerning my case.
    He demonstrated a temper if you would not settle for that he would have me accept or if I
    did not agree with him at all times.

      Lawyer Comment:

      This information is completely false. The client that posted this information purposefully misled me and gave me false information regarding his case. Once I requested payment from this client he posted this defamatory remark.

    • I recommend Matthew Howell.
    • I hired Matthew more than 3 years ago.
    • Matthew handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I live in Tennessee and needed an attorney in Kittery, Maine in a criminal misdemeanor case that involved two different charges. My brother is a longstanding attorney and I have dealt with other attorneys in matters noncriminal so I have some experience with attorneys. I can unreservedly say that Matt is one of the, if not the most honest, responsive, knowledgeable, and accessible attorneys I've ever dealt with. He immediately recognized that the charges were frivolous and he approached the case from that standpoint, even though I was technically guilty of the charges. He left me feeling from our first conversation to the very favorable resolution he obtained for me that I was the only client he had. He did everything he said he would do when he said it would be done, keeping me informed every step of the way. Our communication was conducted entirely via the telephone and email. In the resolution of the case, he had one charge dismissed outright, and the other charge was diverted for six months at which time it will also be dismissed. As to whether I would recommend Matt to anyone else, I would say with no reservation whatsoever, yes. If anyone would like to contact me personally, they need only ask Matt for my phone number. I would be glad to speak with anyone needing an excellent attorney.

  4. Matthew is a breath of fresh air relaxing and assuring
