    • I recommend Howard Spiva.

    In August of 2009 my life was forever changed. I had been hit by a drunk driver.She had no regard for her life much less anyone else on the road that day. But there was one person whom I was very fortunate enough to know Howard Spiva and his team. They are down to Earth people. They truly have compassion and a complete personal understanding of someone not having any regard for human life.One of the things that impressed me the most was no matter how busy they were they always made me feel that my case was just as important as any other and made me feel so welcome just like family. I never imagined that I would be having to hire a law firm and take action against someone. But trust a happy client!!!You cannot go wrong when you put your trust into the hands of people who take care of EVERYTHING. The whole experience was not something I would ever want to go through again however I will always turn to a Great Team ....That will go to war for you if need be. Hat's off to the Howard E. Spiva /Lewis Law Firm... Sincerely, Very happy with everyone & the way things turned out!!

    • I recommend Howard Spiva.

    I suffered from a head injury, severe concussion, and three bulging discs due to my incident. I am a mother of six, one being severely handicapped, I worked and was a full time student. Everything came to a halt with my incident. Mr. Spiva settled my case in a very short amount of time and he settled it for the maximum.
    With that said I have every right to tell you with full confidence that Mr. Spiva is the best attorney in this area.
    My husband called him from the hospital, he and his team came straight up. They came in professional but what stood out most was their kindness and ability to ease your mind right THEN. This incident left me with no knowledge of my schooling and unable to physically take care of my daughter or work. I was so mad and out of my head with confusion from the concussion that I felt frantic and afraid. I was assigned Peter as my case manager. Peter made all of my problems solvable. He found me help, he found me doctors, he listened to me when I was crying and calmed my every worry. I cannot say enough about Mr. Spiva and his staff, I always felt important, from Maggie the receptionist on up to Mr. Spiva himself, they make you feel like you are their only client. I am so very sorry that you need an attorney but I can say with every confidence that you have found the man you need in your corner. You will not regret your decision, but the person that hurt you will.
    I am so very grateful for his handling my case. When you meet him you'll know. He is one of the smartest men I have met in his business, backed by a staff that admire him. He took my worries and stress away the first time I met him. I would say Mr. Spiva every time being asked for a great attorney. ABSOLUTELY

    It has been my great pleasure to work with Howard and his firm over the past several years. He is an extremely knowledgeable attorney with decades of service to the citizenry of South Georgia. His knowledge of the law is secondary only to his integrity and earnest desire to obtain justice for his clients.

    The Spiva Law Firm is awesome. I was involved in a hit and run and thank goodness a witness followed the person. I hired Spiva Law Firm and they are the best. They not only treated me as they had known me forever, they sent get well cards and Holiday cards. They worked so hard to get more than what I was asking. I only wanted my new purchased car paid for and all my medical bills. They took the time and every effort to make that happen plus some. No, I'm not rich, but with these wonderful ladies and gentleman they made a nightmare into a bearable situation. Stress free for me and they handle everything. I would recommended this wonderful group to anyone needing an attorney and where you are always talked and treated professionally. I hope I don't ever need an attorney again (this was my first ever needing an attorney) but I will be very proud for them to handle any case for me if I ever endure such a horrible nightmare again. P.S. I have worked with attorneys in the past but not for personal usage. They came highly recommended to me and I'm glad that I choose this practice.

    Howard and his team really go out of their way to prepare and present a case!! I was injured in a car accident and Howard really built up my case, one fact at a time, and and presented it to me in a 4" binder. I was blown away! It was so detailed and drew a perfect picture of what really happened to me in that car at the time of the wreck as well as the injuries that I struggle with every day! Howard is a fighter! He is determined and very dedicated to helping his clients until a satisfied remedy is met. He will never back down and will always stand in your corner until the final bell rings. The most important asset that Howard has is his profound and most geniune ability to CARE about his clients. Fact is, Howard Spiva and his team are the best at what they do. Hands down!!

    Howard and his team did everything they said they would, including keeping me up to date on any progress or setbacks in my personal injury case.
    Howard may not look intimidating but with his knowledge and his team behind him he can win cases that you never would expect to turn out in their favor.
