  2. Speeding and traffic ticket
    Handling speeding or traffic violations on your own can result in increased insurance rates or a suspended license. Don't roll the dice with the DMV to save a few bucks now, you could end up paying big-time in the long run. Hire an experienced and affordable attorney to help you get the results you need without the stress.

  3. DUI and DWI
    Driving While Intoxicated is a serious traffic crime. Depending on your criminal history, it comes with a serious chance of significant jail time, as well as increased insurance rates, and the possibility of losing your drivers license. You do not have to go through this alone. Call my office to get a free consultation. I offer experienced and affordable representation, with flexible payment options available.

  4. Personal injury
    I you were injured in a car accident or as a result of someone else's negligence you have rights. The insurance companies have their attorneys, you need one yourself. You have rights.

The best in NC—PERIOD.
Mr. Howell and his wonderful mother have assisted me multiple times. Not only was Randall capable of helping me with tickets that other lawyers completely turned away in fear….but he has done it multiple times over now. I am 26 with a lead foot (something I am able to work on, because of Randall’s ability to keep me driving). I have used his services since I was in my early 20s…and every friend I know will use his services from now on. His prices are fair, his work is unmatched, and his results give the all the proof. There isn’t a lawyer out there I’d trust more with saving my future than Mr. Howell.

Mr. Howell brung my son back home to me. He told me that he was going to try to get him back home to me, and he did just that. He kept me informed all the way, and returned all my phone calls. Even answered all my questions, as well as my concerns. He is a respectable person, believable person and a amazing lawyer. I highly recommend Randall Howell for your case. If you are looking for someone, that believes in his client. Mr. Howell is the one for you.

Excellent Service
I contacted this office about a speeding ticket I got while driving through Greensboro. His office assistant was very helpful and friendly and made what could have been a stressful phone conversation quite enjoyable. I ended up being able to handle the situation without an attorney, but this office consulted with me free of charge and gave me stellar advice. Hopefully, I won't be needing these type of services again, but if I do, I would definitely call them again. I would also recommend them to anyone needing an attorney for traffic matters in the Greensboro area. My experience was top notch.

Very Professional, excellent service.
We received a speeding ticket while crossing through NC. Due to the speed it was a mandatory court appearance. We live over 3hrs away from the area, so the following week we got several letters from attorneys. We spoke to some but the letter from Randall's office stood out the most. We spoke to them via email as well as on the phone. Love that it's a family based office, and that they were straight forward with us. We hired them immediately, and have no regrets. They kept us informed of everything every step. Very professional and easy to talk to. We highly recommend them! Thank you again for helping us and giving us the best outcome possible.

Not an ambulance chaser
I received a major driving infraction and live in another state. In the week that followed I received no more than 20+ solicitations from Greensboro attorneys looking to represent me. I waited two weeks going over them and a letter from Randall Howell arrived. I decided to go with the person not so anxious or appearing desperate for business. He and his secretary have been efficient, professional and on top of my case from the outset to the conclusion. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Was honest with me and followed through
I checked out several attorneys and the reviews on Mr Howell looked the best so I called him. He gave me an immediate feeling that he could help me with my ticket. He was up front that there was a chance he would not be as successful as we hoped...BUT he was spot on with what he did for me. He is knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor - something I really needed. He took control and told me not to worry that his office would be back in touch. He absolutely took care of everything. My hero!

one of the best lawyers in nc
I have had plenty of lawyers, some of the best lawyers that money could buy. I was charged with common law robbery in 2013 and was appointed Mr.Howell and they offered me a plea that i denied. Mr. Howell told me he had no problem taking this to trial. Leading all the way up to trial Mr. Howell kept in touch quite frequently. If i called he promptly returned my calls. He is very knowledgeable in what he does. He was very personable, and made me feel like my concerns were valid. I felt that we worked as a team, even during the trial if i felt there was something that needed to be brought to the attention of the jurors, he did not hesitate to do so. This made me feel that my input was valuable. In the end i was found not guilty. We won against someone who is known to be one of the best prosecutors in Guilford County. I can't say enough about how well he represented me, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone that needs an attorney.

Highly Recommended
Randall has been my lawyer for everything that I've had issues with. He is very respectful and a very nice man. I highly recommend him.

Very happy with the reduced charge
On my way home from NC to CT in June 2013, I was pulled over in Greensboro and charged with 80 mph in a 60 mph zone, which comes with a mandatory court appearance. Unable to return to NC to answer to it, I paid The Law Office of Randall Howell a more-than-reasonable flat fee to appear for me and negotiate the charge. I got a letter from them today that they got it reduced to an improper equipment charge (which I'm sure may not be possible in all cases, depending on the circumstances of the offense and the defendant's record). I did have to contact them myself for updates, but they always responded the same day. Most of the correspondence was done by e-mail, which is great if you have a busy schedule, but they are easily contacted by phone. Yes, I will be paying plenty to the court in fees, but to keep my clear driving and criminal record, I'll take it! I will recommend him to my friends back in NC.

Outstanding Legal Services
Having been stopped for speeding in Guilford County, NC on my way home to VA I needed someone to represent me in court. After responding to all the letters I received I checked their reviews and Mr. Howell had the best reviews, the most reasonable fixed rate and the most knowledgable office staff to discuss my issues. His office kept me updated and the outcome was the best. I HIGHLY recommend him

Amazing Dismissal
Mr. Randall Howell recently represented me in court. I was very worried about the case and nervous of the outcome. However, Mr. Howell was prompt, effective, and informative. There were over 800 cases on the docket, but I was in and out of the courtroom very quickly. I am very pleased with his services as -due to him- my case was dismissed. He has helped me out immensely and therefore I recommend him highly to others!

Attorney Howell kept me well informed, making sure I understood what was going on at all times. He alway replied in a timely manner to my endless stream of questions, and concerns. His easy, and friendly manner in meetings, phone calls, and emails comforted me at the most stressful time of my life. Randall's professional, confidant, and charismatic court room demeanor makes him a master of his career! He will have me as a client for life.

Review of Randall Howell for Traffic Violation Representation
Randall Howell is the best attorney I have ever had represent me. He familiarized himself with my situation, communicated clearly and efficiently with me, and exceeded my expectations when it came to the final outcome of my court proceedings. He saved me a lot of time and money and provided a service much greater in value than what I expected to get at the extremely low rates I was charged.

Excellent communication and attention to detail.
Randall Howell recently helped my wife and I with some pressing legal needs. We found him to be both personable and extremely professional. Everything was handled exactly as he said it would be, in a very timely manor. I will recommend Attorney Howell to my friends and family in the future, should they find themselves in need of legal services.

Affordable and Effective
I hired Randall Howell for a ticket involving possible reckless driving. He was able to get the charge down to just an equipment malfunction. I only ever talked to his office via his office assistant over the phone, and she was very nice to explain to me their process. This being my first (and hopefully only) time needing this type of assistance, I was very paranoid and nervous about what might happen. I was not let down and I know he'll be able to help you as well.
