Michael Howard's representation far exceeded my expectations. His knowledge of the law and understanding of legal proceedings was evident the first day we consulted with him. He represented my family and I in a motor vehicle accident claim. Myself and three small children were involved in the accident. Michael Howard was referred to us after our first attorney from a different law was terminated from his position. It was the best referral we have ever had. Michael was able make sense out of months of paperwork and legal documents. He explained everything to us every step of the way. He spoke in terms my family and I could understand and he made sure we always knew exactly where in the process our claim was. Him and his staff were always sure to answer all of our questions. Michael was always available to take our call and never once did we feel like we were a burden to him. Michael shouldered ALL the weight of negotiations, while respecting our wishes. He maintained a very fair position and did not waiver. He was able to take a very emotional and stressful situation and helped us feel at ease. On our court date, he arrived prepared and on point! He did not miss a beat! He was also very well and appropriately dressed. When the claim was settled, the judge spoke off record. It just so happened there were student interns in the courtroom. The judge made special mention of them getting an opportunity to see Michael Howard in court. He spoke very highly of him. It was clear to me that Michael Howard has a well established respect within the legal community. I was proud to be represented by him. I have since referred him and will continue to do so. Our family couldn't have asked for a better attorney. He was always very friendly and we appreciated his hard work and dedication.

Mike has been very meticulous in his details to our case. From the start he has been forthright to make us aware of the uphill battle our case would require as well as the odds of us winning the case if it goes to trial which we are sure it now will. Mike was clear in laying out the steps required for us to get this to a trial date which is soon upon us. Upon observation, Mike has been a master chess master at deposition hearings and I am sure will be the same at the trial itself. Never has Mike filled our desires with a false sense of hope but with a straight forward factual reality. We have nothing but high praise with having Mike Howard represent us.
Mike did an excellent job of negotiating a settlement with an insurance company on behalf of my son. He is extremely professional, yet easy going and always so prompt I communicating. I am in the legal business myself and would highly recommend his services. Thank you, Mike!
Michael handled my our family's negligence/accident claim against a local care facility with true professionalism and skill. Michael was excellent at managing our expectations and keeping the case on track. He stayed in contact with us throughout the process. Michael was able to explain complicated facets of the law to ordinary people, he does not fill us with what we want to hear but with facts backed up with statutes. He gave us the confidence to make decisions and resolve this matter in a timely and cost effective manner. I highly recommend Mikes services to anyone in need of effective legal representation. Honest, factual, above board and good at what he does.
Have worked with Attorney Mike Howard for over 9 years on a number of insurance agent errors and omissions cases. Mike has demonstarted a proven ability to determine and evaluate key issues leading to the successful defense of insured agencies and their employees. Mike has done a fine job representing our insured's best interests while keeping us(the carrier) adequately informed, and pulls no punches in telling insureds and/or us what we need to know in order to properly assess liability and exposure.
Michael took my case and told me it was not going to be easy. He kept me informed on their progress. I was able to reach him if I had questions and he always returned my calls if I had to leave a message. Mike was always engaged and I never felt like my case wasn't important to his firm. When my case went to trial Mike did an outstanding job of presenting all the evidence.
Michael was professional in every way. He explained legal terms and ideas. He uncovered material that I never even would have thought of going after. He guided me through the arbitrator admirably.
Mr. Howard represented our insurance agency in 2011 and 2012. He provided excellent representation.
He was our defense attorney. He was able to get our case dismissed. He has many great qualities. He is very thorough and is able to figure complex legal issues that ultimately benefit his clients.
