  • Cameron C Pease

    For close to twenty years I have worked with Howard. Howard has superior knowledge of the law in many areas, but in particular real estate, condominiums, and civil litigation. More importantly, Howard is extremely committed and persistent in examining, reviewing and studying the facts and evidence in a case which is one of the main reasons he consistently obtains outstanding results. In addition, Howard is cognizant of how rapidly legal fees can mount and he always uses his time productively and cost effectively. I am pleased to provide Howard with this unsolicited endorsement and would strongly recommend him without reservation.
