    Excellent results, never over-promised but delivered the best possible outcome.

    I was driving 20 miles above the speed limit and was pulled over by the police. I received two tickets, one for speeding and one for driving without a valid drivers license, I was driving with an European drivers license which in the State of Illinois could be considered a misdemeanor. I met with Mr. Wise that immediately assured me that I would not get a conviction and worst case scenario I will only have to pay the speeding ticket. On the day of the court, Mr. Wise not only kept his word and I didn't receive a conviction but he was also able to get me "off the hook" for the speeding ticket. In the end, I got the best possible outcome, no tickets or fines. Mr. Wise is a straight shooter that does not need to "sugar code" and most importantly he is available to take your call at anytime. Highly recommend his services.

    Great Attorney

    Could not ask for a better attorney. Howard is a great attorney who will tell you like it is May not be what you want to hear but this attorney will fight for you till the very end. I did not think my case would take as long as it did but Mr wise never gave up and stuck with it till the end. I can not say enough good things about this attorney. I hope I never have to do this again but if I do he is the one I want fighting for me.

    Thank you Howard for your hard work.

    Best Criminal Lawyer You Can Hire

    Mr. Wise is the hardest fighting lawyer in the courtroom! His advice was honest and solid. I had an aggrivated battery, Mr. Wise took it to trial and I was found NOT GUILTY!!!! You can not get a better lawyer then him.

    Wonderful and responsive Attorney

    My son was arrested for a residential burglary. I live out of state and called Mr Wise. From the momwnr I called and retained Mr Wise I knew my aon was in good hands. Mr Wise kept me informed throughout the case. My son says that Mr Wise impeached all the witnesses! My son was found not guilty! I highly recomment him.

    Bad attorney and extremely rude

    I paid Howard a lot of money to represent me. He was selling me dreams. The judge found me guilty, so i asked Howard if he could ask the judge to let me turn myself in at a later date so I can notify my job on whats going on, he tells the judge if I could turn myself in at a later date because we want to see what happen in probation court, so the judge asked what was i on probation for, Howard told him for the same offense. I asked Howard was he with me or against me. The judge sentence me to 200days county time and i lost my job. Thats not all...I paid him in advance for everything, so i had to see him again in front of my probation judge, the probation judge was about to give me 2years on my next court date, I told Howard to do something, he kept saying he aint going to do this and that, so i fired him, the public defender got me what Howard told me he couldnt get Hes very rude, and he do what he wants to do, once he has all your money. biggest mistake i ever mad hiring him!

    Howard Jay Wise’s response: “I represented Rollin on a Driving While License Suspended/Revoked case and a violation of probation. At trial the arresting officer testified that he personally witnessed the defendant driving and at the time his license was revoked. The officer never mentioned in his police reports that my client was driving. I asked the officer this at trial and he admitted he never put that in any police report. The Judge still found him credible and found my client Guilty. He was already on probation for the same offense. Rollin asked me to try to prevent the judge from revoking his bond. I asked the judge several times if he would consider not revoking his bond and continue the case for sentencing to get his affairs in order as there was mandatory jail time for this matter. The case took a lot longer than usual and I never asked him for any additional fee. I then went to handle his probation matter on two different occasions. On the second appearance I set the case for hearing on a certain date in the future. Somehow, the case was set on a different date than we agreed on in court. I could not appear on that date as I was engaged in a trial. I notified the State and asked that it be set to the date that we agreed on previously. Somehow the probation matter was resolved on that date while I was not present. I appeared on each and every court date and gave my client the best defense possible. I am sorry he was not satisfied with the representation but if I had to do it all over again, I would not change a thing in the way I defended him. I'm sorry he lost his job and wish him the best of luck in the future. This type of case is tough to win as all the State has to prove is that a person was driving or in actual physical control of a vehicle and that person's driver's license was either suspended or revoked. My client did not want to accept any plea bargain so I had to try the case. Please read the rest of my reviews that will show my perfect rating (all excellent).”

    Very Reassuring

    Mr. Wise was very reassuring and positive to work with. This was the first time I've ever been in trouble with the law/been in a court room and Mr. Wise showed great professionalism and knowledge of the subject. The fact that he had experience and had won cases in the past that were very similar to mine was especially reassuring. Being new to a court room he could see I was a nervous wreck. He gave me hints, tips, and jokes to put me at ease. He helped prove my innocence and was great about showing me where/how to get my expungement started.

    Driving Violations

    We've had 2 different problems of family members and in both cases Mr. Wise helped them get their licenses back. He takes away that panicky feeling when you have to go to court. He treated us with kindness and respect.
