Custody and Child Support
Fred made sure I got 50/50 custody with my daughter and fair child support amount. He was on top of everything and he was able to get a custody agreement done before we went trial. It’s a tough situation having to fight for fair custody of your child as father. He mad me feel confident that it would go through and it did. I highly recommend his services.

Would Highly Recommend
I hired Fred to assist in my divorce decree and marital separation filings. Fred was very responsive and helpful through out the entire process and made it as painless as possible. I would happy recommend him to others or hire him in the future for other legal matters. Thank you, Fred.

Fast, efficient, practical and pragmatic
Hired Fred to assist with a non-contested divorce, he had everything filed, finalized and approved by the court in only 92 days (90 day mandatory waiting period, papers filled the next day, approved the day following). I don’t think it’s technically possible to go any faster. Fred was fast, efficient and extremely responsive. He’s a practical and pragmatic attorney who can explain the legal process. He said what he was going to do, and did exactly as promised. Fees were very reasonable. I would highly recommend Fred Howe to anyone needing legal services.

Worth every penny
Fred was brutally honest in the best ways possible. He always made sure I was fully prepared for whatever situation may arise and was even more prepared himself for situations I hadn’t thought of. He is a diamond. I can’t say enough wonderful things about my experience with him and my experience as his client.

Great lawyer, and a great guy.
Fred was really honest and upfront from the beginning to the end of my custody case to get more time with my daughter. He explained my rights as a father and was very professional and had no problem answering any questions I had and very fast response times. He actually let me know that he welcomed any questions I may have and encouraged me to ask them. Fred is a good guy and a good lawyer. I will definitely use him again if the need arises.

Excellent lawyer
I recently contacted Fred regarding custody arrangements and he didn’t hesitate to make an appointment with me and my ex. He was very knowledgeable and polite through the entire experience. He explained everything in detail to make sure both parties understood what was going on and made sure we were both in agreement with everything we were signing before going through with anything. He took his time to make sure we felt comfortable with what we were doing. I can’t say enough how excellent he was to work with!

Professional Lawyer
I hired Fred 10 years ago as my divorce attorney. He is very knowledgeable of the law. He explains things in "my terms" so that I understand my rights and entitlements. He is very knowledgeable of the court system and knows how it works. He successfully followed my case through the divorce process by pushing a lagging system all the way. In recent years, I have continue to retain Fred for counsel on repeated issues with my ex-husband related to support and custody of my children. I have been satisfied with my representation and received the results I had hope for. Fred is the type of lawyer that is available when you need him and will lead you in the right direction.

Amazing Divorce Attorney
Fred Howe is an attorney you want fighting for you. He is very knowledgeable, and takes the time to explain each step of the process, ensuring you have a solid understanding of what to expect, what will come next, and how you should proceed. He is quick to reply to phone calls and emails, again taking the time to answer each question or provide guidance. He made what was a stressful time, slightly easier, knowing I had a solid understanding of what to expect and a knowledgeable attorney fighting for me throughout the process.

Helped establish a custody order for my daughter when numerous tries to figure it out between ourselves failed
Attorney Howe is very up front and explains how every aspect of custody works &what types there are. My ex and I repeatedly tried to figure out schedules ourselves and it left frustration, constant inconsistencies for my daughter, and no secure guidelines. Attorney Howe was solely focused on what was best for my daughter and helped everyone amicably come to a great resolution. Hands down, the best decision I have made, in regards to her custody, was going to him so we could have a consistent schedule!

Child custody
I don't know what my husband and I would have done, if we hadn't found Fred, in our custody battle with my son's biological father. He has been amazing! We had been to other lawyers, but Fred was the only attorney, who truly helped us. I feel he has truly been there for us, and I agree with another reviewer that he's an attorney you want fighting for you. My husband and I won't hesitate to seek him for legal advice, if other matters or questions rise in the future, or to refer those seeking an excellent attorney.

wonderful attorney
I wish there was an option of ten stars. Fred is by far the best attorney I have ever used. We adopted our Grandson and Fred was just the attorney we were blessed to have. After years of raising our Grandson with only a custody agreement, we went to see Fred with our concern. I wish we would have found him sooner. He eased our fears of losing our grandson and filed for Adoption. He was amazing! He answered every question I had and was able to put our minds at ease. He answered my calls or called me right back we I needed him. Fred worked with us financially and never brought up payment before he preceded. Because of Fred our Adoption went through smoothly.
