  • Suzann Leigh Beckett

    I have known Howard Stross for many years. We originally met through a professional organization we belonged to, and saw each other frequently at educational events. Since then, I have worked with Howard on several real estate and estate planning matters. I have always found Howard to be professional, thorough, and caring. He is a true gentleman, which is reflected by his well trained and compassionate staff. I endorse Howard for both real estate and estate planning, and would recommend him to any friend or family members in his area. He is my "go to" attorney for Florida matters.
