    • I do not recommend D. Stitzel.

    Stay far away from this lawyer. He is very unprofessional, untrustworthy and unreliable. When he handled my child custody case he was actually siding with my ex and arguing with me during my mediation (that he showed up very late for). He had just gone through a divorce and seemed to be using his personal experiences against me, his client. When I first hired him I rushed that same day as my consultation to get his money to him so he could file the paperwork for my case right away so I could file before my ex. He claimed that he would file that day if I got him the money. I later found out he didn't file until a few weeks after when he said he would, so I did not file first and ended up having to have my case handled 2 hours away. Also, he was very unkempt when he showed up for my case (late) it was very unprofessional. Not to mention this was during the time when a body was being dug up in his back yard.
    I fired him right away and received no money back and got zero results. I ended up having to pay double because I had to hire a new attorney. Terrible experience.

    • I do not recommend D. Stitzel.
    • I hired D. Stitzel 1-3 years ago.
    • D. Stitzel handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I wish I never would have hired this attorney.He doesnt show up for court, which caused me to get another arrest.Then he didnt even admit it.I already paid him, and I cant afford someone else, so I have to continue with this attorney.

    Howard is the type of person that will give you the honest truth. He tells you exactly what to expect, what is and what is not possible and treats you like a human being -not a paycheck. I have, and will continue to, recommend Howard.
