Howard represented me in a complicated white collar crime case. To make a long story very short, Howard was able to negotiate with the prosecution. He was able to resolve from 5 felonies (2 class 2, 2 class 3 and 1 class 5) into one undesignated felony, with no jail time (probation only).
Howard was honest and hard working, and as the case progressed I found he was more than just my attorney he became a trusted friend. I publicly thank Howard for his time and for his advice in this process. I would suggest Howard to anyone looking for a good criminal defense lawyer.
Howard represented me on my last felony case involving organized retail theft on top of my felony probation violation. Howard was a fact finding hound and eventually the prosecution had to amend my case to a lesser charge. I was sentenced to the minimum and was out of prison only a week later. Thank you Howard.
Mr. Snader made promises that he didn't meet, had too many clients to keep straight. Complained about his caseload & many court appearances. He shared information with us about other clients that we did not care to hear. He did not interview any witnesses in our case, got us to spend $2575 extra for an expert that resulted in HURTING our case. Howard was rude and short with us. He made representations that ended up falling very short of the outcome. We would not use this attorney again, mainly due to his hostile demeanor and lousy advice. We did everything he advised and the outcome of our case was deplorable compared to what Howard said would happen.
Mr. Snader over promised and under delivered and was extremely rude and arrogant. Oh, he was nice enough until we signed the fee documents, but after the down payment was made and the commitment completed he was very short tempered, acted very put-out when we asked questions about my case and was generally very ill-tempered. He had a case load that was too big to manage, he got names, dates, jails mixed up. The plea deal we got was NOT what Mr. Snader promised when we hired him and was nowhere near the outcome he told us to expect. He spent more time arguing and being adversarial with his clients than fighting for us. His paralegal, Merril, was very professional & helpful, but overall our experience was very disappointing and very expensive. We could have gotten the same (or perhaps a better deal) with a public defender.
The service we received from the Law Office of Howard Snader was supportive and effective. After initial consultation we better understood the case and the process. Follow-up to our inquires was generally prompt and helpful. Howard's assistant, Meryl, is very caring and attentive. Thanks for all your help!
From our initial consultation, we had complete confidence in Howard Snader's knowledge and ability. His professionalism and manner assured us he was more than capable of providing excellent representation should we need it. We would not hesitate to recommend or use his services again.
Mr Snader represented me in a criminal case; I was facing a Felony 2 with up to 10 years in Prison. Howard Snader was upfront and honest with me, not making any false promises to gain me as a client. He was the only attorney I visted that I felt was not just after my money. My case was closed just serving 15 days in jail with work release conditions. I was extermely happy with Howard Snader and highly reccommend him.
Howard was hired to be my primary attorney on an unfortunate charge I was accused of. He showed myself and my family honesty, and true compassion for my case. He worked diligently and hard on my case. He came up with different plans of actions and always made sure I was comfortable with everything before he proceeded with actions or decisions on my behalf. After each court he brought comfort to my family with willingness to take some time to address and answer any questions/concerns they may have had. He also kept close communication with my wife and mother, to keep them in the loop on any new motions or hearings that was forthcoming. During his representation I was incarcerated and I had peace of mind after he would brief me on whats going on with my case, and what to expect next. I was able to put my full trust in Howard and the work/research he was doing for my very complicated case. Howard was able to get my very serious charges dropped down to a lessor charge. Howard was my attorney for almost 2years, and without a doubt I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a true legal defense attorney, that wants justice! Howard is very passionate about what he does and will fight for your justice.
On behalf of myself and my family, it has been an honor to call you my attorney, Thank you for all that you have done for me!
I came out to Arizona on vacation from n.y. while on vacation I rented a car from herts and drove to rocky point for the weekend. To my suprise when re entering the country customs discovered 50 lbs of marijuana in the spare tire. What a nightmare!!! imagine that was you sitting in a cell trying to explain to a bunch of cops that you had no idea what was in your rental car 3000 mls. from home. Thank god for Howard Snader. He got to work as soon as he was retained and fought for justice. He sought the truth when everybody else closed there minds to the thought that I really was inocent. as a result he was able to prove the truth and the charges where dropped in a few short mounths. if you have ever had any experiance with the law you know that nothing gets resolved that fast. Unless Howered Snader is your lawer i guess.lol. If you are in a jam i can't think of anybody else that i would want in my corner. in short you've found the right lawer. good luck and stay out of the tents
