Business Success!!!
Neal has helped me on several different occasions with a small business dispute I was involved in. I called Neal after recommendation from a Family friend regarding my particular situation. Neal Howards professionalism and courtesy was beyond what I expected, as most lawyers are more interested in their clock. Neal would call me at home after work and give me updates. I really appreciated the level of attentiveness he showed me. Thanks again Mr. Howard.

Neal Howard is a fine lawyer
I have seen Neal Howard in a handful of capacities. I have observed him in my role as a trial judge, as co-counsel and as a mediator. Neal Howard offers superior legal service. "Caution" in this review is unwarranted in that he knows what he's doing, can try a strong case and genuinely cares for his clients, colleagues and the bench. I would trust him with any personal injury, medical malpractice, trucking, premises or wrongful death/catastrophic injury case. Neal is a fine lawyer and a good man.

Neal is very professional and honest. He is not out for what he can get from a case but has his client's best interest at heart. His knowledge and understanding of the law and his connections make him a lawyer I would always want on my team!

I will never use another lawyer if I can help it!. My case was small I am sure to him but he treated it as it was a million dollar case. I had rented a house and had made arrangement to use my deposit as the last month rent which they agreed upon BUT then sent me a 2000.00 bill accusing me of damages. I had left that house in GREAT condition. I have always heard that you never get your deposit back in that kind of business. You typically always have to pay what ever they accuse you of. Fortunately, He went to bat for me and won!!! He took my case very seriously and professionally. Also, when I would call the office I was always treated like I mattered and that IS HUGE in my book. Wonderful lawyer!! He is tenacious, reliable and honest. EXCELLENT!!

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2013.

Public Reprimand issued in GA, 2013
updated on 09/21/2016

This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Neal's comment: “In 25 years of practice law, this was due to a bank deposit oversight by staff member. Please feel free to obtain a copy of details:”
