Representation
When I reached out to the law Offices of Jordan Howlette I was overwhelmed and quite frankly desperate for justice. I explained my situation to Jordan and without hesitation he agreed to take my case. Jordan’s empathy, professionalism, and patience are admirable. Jordan is a gifted attorney at fighting for justice. I am grateful for all he and his firm have done.

Employment Case
I can't say enough regarding Attorney Howlette. I had an eployment case in the State of VA and another attorney was handling my employment complaint. This attorney informed he could long mer pursue because of the changes, etc. Moving forward Attorney Howlette became licensed in the State of Virginia and call it divine intervention. Attorney Howlette accepted my case and in less than 4 months he had my case resolved. I would recommend Attorney Howlette as he has been very open and upfront regzrding my case.

Compassionate, professional and knowledgeable
I couldn’t be more pleased with the work produced by Jordan Howlette and his team. When I first contacted JD Howlette Law I was scared and felt helpless, but after my very first meeting with Jordan I knew I had someone extraordinary on my side. Jordan explained the law to me in ways that I could understand, had compassion for my situation, and executed the work quickly and efficiently. His directness and patience were exactly what I needed. If you need an attorney, I highly recommend JD Howlette Law.

Best Lawyer!
I have nothing but excellent words to say about Attorney Jordan! I was looking for a lawyer and left messages with at least six. He not only returned my call on a weekend but took the time and patience to hear me out and share. He guided me step by step which put my daughter and I at so much ease. He knows the courts knows his cases. I would hire him again and again. He took on our case and it went exactly as he said it would! We walked away happy and satisfied!

Excellent Attorney and Very Client Friendly
Jordan is a very good attorney. Very knowledgeable of the laws and know when to apply them. I found it very easy and enjoyable to work with Jordan. I unfortunately found myself having to proceed with my case as a pro se litigant. Jordan came in on a limited representation to help me proceed to the finish line. I advise anyone to get an attorney and I did, but that representation was horrible to the point I had to terminate the attorney's service. Jordan is the attorney you would want to represent you.

Defamation and Slander
I would like to share that Attorney Jordan Howlette went beyond the expected course to aid me in receiving and an award for defamation and slander. Attorney Howlette, was persistent, gallant, and delivered a presentation to the judge that was most impressive. I have recommended Attorney Howlette to several individuals and we all have had the same experience. I highly recommend him and his team.

Excellent Attorney, Excellent Person, Excellent Outcome
Beginning with the initial consultation through my entire case, Jordan exemplified the clear and concise, level-headed demeanor you want in a lawyer. His ability to strategically analyze and apply various legal elements to any situation is unparalleled. I witnessed that where other legal professionals failed, Jordan was able to dynamically overcome obstacles or see courses of action in a new light – looking past conventional doctrine. As a veteran himself, he was able to relate to many of my unique experiences and apply them to the greater picture of the situation. I would recommend Jordan to anyone in need. While he is great lawyer, he is an even better person and can be trusted and relied upon in a moment of stress. Ultimately, Jordan was able bring an unprecedent case to an amicable close, which helped prevent unnecessary financial and emotional costs.

Attentive, respectful, professional
Jordan went above and beyond what could be expected of an attorney for a civil litigation matter. He answered calls even when he was out of the country and would take time at odd hours to speak with me. Beyond providing solid legal advice, he would always take into consideration my concerns, thoughts and perspective during a very stressful time for me and my husband. The results were better than I could have expected and I am at ease knowing that I now have a trusted and capable attorney to contact in the future, if needed.

Mr. Howlett took my case extremely fast and was very helpful. He was compassionate, caring and very family friendly towards my feelings, questions and concerns. God forbid, but if I ever end up in a situation when I am in need of a lawyer. He will be the first person I call and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Legal Services Review
I must say, working with Jordan and his legal team was a dream come true. I was personally dealing with a previous business partner who tried to remove me from the company we started. The JD Howlette team stepped in swiftly, and helped me resolve this legal matter. I was able to walk away with a great settlement package that can help me provide for my family - while I transition into new business endeavors. I truly recommend JD Howlette law firm to anyone looking for great legal services.

Highly recommended lawyer for business owners
I’ve used JD Howlette a few times for different business matters. Jordan and his team are hands down the most professional and thorough lawyers I’ve ever used. I utilized their services for both business and civil matters this year and the results were great. I intend to be a long term client with JD Howlette and highly recommend them to anyone I come across who even considers starting a new business. And not only are they extremely competent and professional, but they also have great personalities, which isn’t something I can say about most lawyers I’ve come across!

JD Howlett was professional in his approach, and I did not feel rushed in our conversation. JD patiently listened to my concern and communicated to me as to whether he could help me or not. In my case he could help me. He or Assistant, Lars stayed in contact with me, as it related to updates. Everything JD said he could do, he did. I like this lawfirm.
