Best of the BEST...
Let me just say, Matt Howell is as good as it gets. I trust him with my whole world. I owe him everything and hope one day I'll be able to pay him back for the amazing things he did. He had my back at all hours of the night and always answered my text/calls. Id take a bullet for him anyday. I love that guy.

If you need an attorney that will handle your case as if you were a family member, Matt Howell is your man.
I live in Tennessee and needed an attorney in Kittery, Maine in a criminal misdemeanor case that involved two different charges. My brother is a longstanding attorney and I have dealt with other attorneys in matters noncriminal so I have some experience with attorneys. I can unreservedly say that Matt is one of the, if not the most honest, responsive, knowledgeable, and accessible attorneys I've ever dealt with. He immediately recognized that the charges were frivolous and he approached the case from that standpoint, even though I was technically guilty of the charges. He left me feeling from our first conversation to the very favorable resolution he obtained for me that I was the only client he had. He did everything he said he would do when he said it would be done, keeping me informed every step of the way. Our communication was conducted entirely via the telephone and email. In the resolution of the case, he had one charge dismissed outright, and the other charge was diverted for six months at which time it will also be dismissed. As to whether I would recommend Matt to anyone else, I would say with no reservation whatsoever, yes. If anyone would like to contact me personally, they need only ask Matt for my phone number. I would be glad to speak with anyone needing an excellent attorney.

Family Attorney | Apr 19
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. He's a force to be reckoned with."
Litigation Attorney | May 06
Relationship: Co-worker
"Matt is a very competent, kind and controlled attorney that means business but does it with a smile, which is not always an easy thing to accomplish. He is pleasant to work with, produces good results and communicates well with his clients and co-workers. The plain and simple fact of the matter is, Matt is a born leader, and it shows. On any given night, Matt's car is the last to leave the office parking lot but he never complains about the hours he puts in. On the weekend, if I stop in the office to check on one thing or another, I will often find Matt working. I have seen few attorneys as dedicated to their clients as Matt is and far fewer that can bring that dedication into their daily practice with the humor, grace and professionalism that Matt does."
