4.5 stars 22 totalReview Howard Van Den Heuvel
From the original consult to the time in office to the time in court. They continued to exceed my expectations. When i first came to them I was in a whirlwind of chaos almost immediately was put at peace by the consult alone. Were the peace continued throughout the process. I'm finding it hard to put into words how great from start to finish my business with them has been. I will highly recommend them to everyone I meet. they are an A+++ If your reading this and you need an Attorney take my word for it THESE ARE YOUR GUYS. They set a standard for me that I don't believe I could find anywhere else I'm finally at peace.
At first started looking for a lawyer and everwhere i looked pointed to Howard, great reviews and multiple stars, this was the guy. Howard at first seems like he is going to be great. He talks this really big game and seems like he is going to fight this head first and you will win... It took two months before Howard even started working on my case. In the court room he didn't back his big talk up. In the end he kind of just gave in to the other party. He only put in a little effort into my case. I recommend to just keep searching. Better luck finding a Craigslist lawyer.
I hired Howard and his son l to look over a child support review to make sure it was done correctly. Justin said it would be a good idea to do because the court is often biased toward men. I provided all the information he asked from me on the same day because I knew there was a limited time for me to submit the paperwork for a hearing. There was about two weeks at this point. Justin had no problem with this deadline and no problem processing my credit card for the service. Several days went by and he wasn't getting back to me. I tried an email with no response and left voicemail messages. Eventually Justin responded saying Howard was working on it. Several more days went by and I was still waiting for Howard's opinion on the review. I called and spoke with Secretary Sharon who said Howard was still working on it. The deadline date came and still I heard nothing. I emailed Howard expressing my concern. At about 5:30pm on the day the court was supposed to have the paperwork to request a hearing I finally heard from Howard. However, it was too late at this point as the deadline had past and the court was closed. The paperwork I was supposed to submit to the court was supposed to have a specific reason on why I did not agree with the review, but all Howard said in the voicemail (I was working when he called most if the time) was he saw too many variables to believe the court's decision was accurate. (This says to me that he hadn't even looked at any of the paperwork) I emailed and left voicemails for Howard expressing my disappointment and requesting a refund for the hard earned money I wasted. Howard still has not replied to me and it's been close to two months. I have never felt so scammed. Do not use Howard or Justin, They do not care about your situation, no matter how important it is to you. I thought I was being very helpful by providing all the information they requested immediately after they asked for it. I'm sure they have plenty other cases making them more money so they gave mine absolutely no priority.
To top off the lack of professionalism, I received a contract agreement from their secretary, Sharon. In the agreement there were several typos including the spelling of my name and incorrect address. I emailed Sharon back about this so she would correct it and she never responded.
Please do not use this office for your legal needs. They'll be very eager to take your money, of course, but they will not give you the time of day..and good luck having to push them along with the work by calling and emailing constantly. Find an office that cares.

Howard and his associates represented us in a child custody case. He represented us professionally and aggressively. Howard takes the time to get to know his clients and his knowledge of custody laws and the court system were a huge advantage for us. Well worth the reasonable rates he charges. We could not be more pleased with his services. Thank you, Howard.

I got to meet Howard on a complimentary consultation. He was extremely respectable and informed with my legal matters and provided sound guidance.

I hired him to represent my daughter. From the beginning he kept me informed and always let me know what we needed to get ready. He was very knowledgeable and a real go after it guy. Couldn't think of a better lawyer to be represented by.

Howard represented me 10 years ago and I was pleased with the support he gave me then and recently needed a recommendation for which he once again gave me knowledgeable advice. I would recommend him and his firm to anyone! Thank you Howard!

Howard started with a very reasonable rate and continued his service with quality and dedicated time. He heard my needs and wouldn't give up. He answered my questions promptly and thoroughly. I would have anyone in need of any legal support visit Howard. He will work beyond what you expect at a rate you will be surprised by. He really cares!
