Great Lawyer
Choosing Howard was the best decision I made when I was involved in a car crash that was not my fault. Howard and Drew made sure I always knew what was going on and never failed to answer any of my questions. They listened to me and helped me get through some of the toughest parts of my life. I am forever grateful for them.

Satisfied
Posted by TeresaSeptember 12, 2021 My husband and I hired the Butler Law Group after my car accident which I was not at fault. They were very professional but yet treated us like family. Drew was very good at finding loopholes. They researched everything and helped us in anyway they could. I called them with questions and they always had the answers or they would find out and get back to me very quickly. I would recommend this Law Group to anyone!!

Attention To Detail
Howard was very up-front and descriptive about all the ins and outs of my case throughout the entire process. He left no question unanswered. My case was extended through the covid pandemic and he remained hard at work to make sure everything proceeded smoothly while also reassuring and making sure my family and I were comfortable throughout the process. I couldn't say enough about him and his office and I'm extremely grateful for the work he did. I couldn't be more pleased with my decision to choose him to represent me.

Attention to detail
The Butler Law Group looked at every aspect of my case and made it a personal mission. I felt reassured knowing they had my back. I went out of my way to seek out a law firm that was focused on my situation and was not disappointed. Glad to bypass the billboard and radio ads, to find a firm that cares.

Amazing Lawyer and Firm
Mr. Butler was amazing at settling my case. When I first inquired about Mr. Butler he allowed me to meet with him in the same week, and took on all the information he needed to start my case. He took the time to not only ask about case information but also how I was doing in life overall, making a personal connection, and making sure I felt confident with acquiring him as my lawyer. His firm took the time to give me any updates in my case as they came up, making sure I knew exactly what was going on in my case and how it was progressing. Being a newly graduated college student and having to worry about all the medical expenses, Butler was always there to help calm me down and ultimately settled my case. Butler and his group have given me a hopeful start at my life after college. He is the best lawyer I have had the honor to know, with his professionalism and his compassion for his clients.

Amazing
Howard was professional, and kind. He took care of my case in a timely manner and it had a fantastic outcome. He is kind , knowledgeable and understanding. He made me feel like family. I couldn't have asked for a better representation in my case. To see him doing his job was truly a work of art. He is someone you can trust , and makes you feel like you matter, you do not feel like just another case to him. You can tell that he cares, not only on a professional level but on a personal level.

Amazing Attourney and Caring Friend
I'm so fortunate to have had Howard represent me in two separate cases. From each case I recieved a settlement that was beyond my expectations. These cases created a significant deal of stress in my life, but Howard kept me calm. He was always prompt to respond to any questions I had, and showed a genuine interest in how I was doing as a result of the accidents I was in. I can honestly say that he is a good and caring person. He helped me when I needed help the most.
