Great Attorney
Some attorneys only plead a case and never go before a judge. This attorney goes before a judge and wins. This attorney knows what she's doing. This attorney is very very good. She is a true true professional. Listen to her even if you don't understand what's going on. Let her do her job. She helped me win a seven figure case that changed my life.

Sharon Howard is an excellent attorney. She has successfully handled several cases for me, as well as my son, in the last 20 years.

Caring and Attentive
I retained Sharon and her law firm for an auto accident case. Sharon was extremely thorough with all of the paperwork and files. She was sympathetic to my situation and really fought for me as an individual, not just a client. Thanks to her and her great team, they doubled what the insurance company initial settlement offer. You never really want to be part of a lawsuit, but if you do, then I whole-heartedly recommend Sharon and her team.

Excellent team work!
We personally recommend The Howard Law Firm to anyone looking for a great lawyer, one who shows high regard for their client’s best interest. My wife and myself had the pleasure of working with Attorneys Sharon Howard and Leif Howard and their wonderful support team. They have all been very instrumental in resolving our auto accident case to my satisfaction. They worked tirelessly to resolve the many twists and turns that my case involved. They are great to work with! We thank them very much for never resting until our case was resolved. If you have a car accident case and need advocacy, my wife and I highly recommend them. Thank you Howard Law Firm for all you do.

The Best Law Firm
Even though it took years of grueling work & making sure all of my information was aligned, Mrs. Howard & her team never gave up hope. They were always in contact with me, extremely thorough & very reassuring in each step of the case. I’m extremely grateful for all of their help, as well as how informative they were (& still are). By far the greatest, and hopefully only, law firm I’ve dealt with.

Amazing Lawyer
Sharon did a phenomenal job with my case. In the beginning I was so worried and overwhelmed by the accident and my hospital bills. Then once I hired Sharon I was reassured that I was in good hands and even felt a weight lifted off my shoulders.she kept me updated on the status of my case and well informed on the various decisions and options we had to take to pursue my settlement. Very experienced very professional and I would definitely recommend.

The best lawyers in town!
The Howard Law Firm is an amazing black owned family Law Firm in Tucker Georgia. I got into an accident about a year ago and it was a very devastating and depressing experience for me but having them as my Law Firm made the process and my first experience with a lawyer very positive and very easy. They were amazing with responding back to me within a reasonable amount of time and whenever I needed to call or email them for anything I got a response almost immediately.

They made sure that when my case was finally settled that I was able to walk out of the door with my check and didn’t have to worry about any of the doctors or anyone else involved in the case. They are a Law Firm but they definitely feel like family to me as well and you would be very smart to hire them as the lawyers for your next case.

Professional & Wonderful Lawyer
I was recommended to the Howard Law Firm by a co-worker and I'm glad that I chose them! Mrs. Howard was attentive, pleasant, and thorough in explaining the process of handling my case. She and her Staff kept me abreast every step of the way! Although, she handles multiple clients I always felt that I was special as if my case was the only one at the time whenever I spoke with her.
