Michael Howell is a thorough, knowledgeable, highly skilled, and detail oriented lawyer. Certified by the South Carolina Supreme Court as a specialist in Estate Planning and Probate matters, his ethical standards and professional abilities are beyond reproach. My wife and I have been estate planning clients, and we are very pleased with the work he has done for us. Additionally, he is currently representing me as the Personal Representative of an estate of a dear friend. I have worked on numerous cases with Michael ac a colleague, and find him to be a tireless and energetic advocate for his clients. He is both caring and compassionate in his dealings with clients who are often vulnerable by reason of their age or circumstances of having suffered the loss of a loved one. He is honest, forthright, and a true credit to his profession. I recommend him without reservation.
