    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.

    I was in a bad accident on the JEA bus when it was hit my a truck. He fought for me and my case that helped me get more money. This whole situation was very stressful for me and I was getting impatient, but Butler was very patient with me. He is a nice guy and cool guy and hardworker.

    When I first saw Howard in action, I knew I didn't have to worry anymore. He had complete command of my depositiions, was so intellegent and knowledgable, and took control of the opposition, and took care of me from beginning to end. It was such a relief I didn't have the burden anymore, because I knew I was in the right hands He took a nerve-wrecking situation for me and from start to finsih got me through it and a settlement offer beyond what I could have expected. As a minister with integrity and honesty, I can gladly say that Howard is a man of character as well, which importance could not be understated for me. After two cases over a period of ten years with Howard, I would recommend him to anyone who is in a time of need.

    Mr. Butler is amazing.. his staff kept me informed.. as did he personally.. whenever I had a question he was right on it with an answer.. and fought for me from the day we met.. My experience with him is great.. and I would personally recommend him to anyone else for anything... He and his family are people I would love to deal with again should I ever have a chance.. He looked out for me and my best interest's.. I never had to worry or wonder about what was going on or the progress of my case.. He even recommended other lawyers from other fields to me for other purposes...And the best part was him calling me himself instead of having his staff do it.. although sometimes if he were on a case .. trial.. he would ask them to call me to update me.. but that was appreciated as well... So if you want the best lawyer in Jacksonville or the surrounding area's please call him.. you will not EVER regret it... He is also personable and tough.. he was ready to go to court if we had needed too.. he is not one to sign you up and settle your case in a few months.. he fights for you..he looks in to the legalities of other things that may actually apply to your individual case in other fields as well....So as a rating for him and his staff on a scale from 0-10.. He would rate a 20..Thank you Mr. Howard Butler for your help and kindness to me over these last few years.. Merry Christmas.. and God Bless You..

    My wife and I were in an accident in Florida when we were visiting from out of state. I knew I would have a difficult decision ahead of me of who to have represent my wife and me in such a predicament. I didn’t want to just go with the first lawyer that popped up on google, understanding the seriousness of my accident and case, so I went through a number of websites until I found Howard Butler and the Butler Law Group. When I saw his accolades and awards in trial, I felt confident that this would be the attorney that could represent my wife and me going forward. Wow! When I met Howard and his team for the first time, he was very sincere and honest, but he was also extremely serious, intimidating, and had a real presence about him. Although personally I would not be best friends with this personality, after going through the process I can see how fortunate I was in having someone like that in our corner. He never backed down, and had the respect of even the large insurance lawyers! He and his team prepared for our case as if it were going to trial from day 1.
    I couldn’t help but think about the costs and fees that would be coming up for my case as well. Howard’s team worked late hours preparing and created many of the presentations in house where I found out most firms outsource to expensive outfits and then expense it to the client. Not only did we get a better settlement offer than we would have if we went with another attorney, but I know our costs would have been much higher if we had gone elsewhere as well. I realize that no matter who you have represent you, they are going to take the same fees and incur (higher!) costs as you go. Might as well get a lawyer who will give you an A result and save you thousands of dollars in costs. I am very happy I chose Howard and the Butler Law Group, because I know my wife and I are in a much better position to move on from our accident than we would have otherwise.

    Attorney Howard Butler at the Butler Law Group (BLG) really established a trust relationship with my husband and I from the very beginning of our case, and guided us through the inevitably long and difficult process of bringing a case forward. This was so important, because we were from out of town and were in a bad accident, and it was so crucial for us to select the right attorney, because regardless of who represents you they are going to take a fee no matter what they are able to do for you. We looked through a number of attorneys online, but once we found Howard Butler and saw his credentials, we knew this was the direction we needed to go. We were worried at first because we did not hear much about our case at first, until we spoke with Howard directly and saw that he and his team had been preparing for our case as if it were going to trial in a week, even though we didn’t even have our first deposition at that point! We recognize that Howard Butler, although very professional and caring in dealing with us, was very intimidating and “CEO like” with the insurance companies we were dealing with. We were very impressed as we could tell that the insurance representatives and other lawyers took him very seriously, obviously because of his reputation and willingness to take things to trial if they don’t give a fair settlement and getting great results in the courtroom. Howard never backed down until they got to a point that my husband and I were happy with, and we are convinced we would not have been as happy with our settlement if we had gone to another lawyer.

    My family and I visited with the Butler Law Group on May 8, 2013 as my mother was confined in Orange Park Hospital in Orange Park, Florida, facing imminent death from a cardio-pulmonary arrest she suffered from the night before. It was a heart-wrenching time but it was also the culmination of a successful closure to a year and a half of work done by the Butler Law Group to pursue a claim on behalf of my family against State Farm, arising from the death of my father due to brain injuries he sustained from a vehicular homicide the morning of December 19, 2011. The final settlement which we all witnessed to and agreed upon that morning exceeded our best expectations as it was way beyond what State Farm originally offered as “just compensation”. This compensation as a “death benefit” was also in the opinion of the lawyer my elder sister originally consulted and who was supposedly her friend , the “most” the family will be entitled to. I remembered that meeting well. Two attorneys- a male and female-from a law group whose name I don’t care to remember anymore showed up in Orange Park hospital as my father was in the last throes of death. Right off the bat, the meeting did not go well. Both were annoyed that we were late at the meeting which took place in the hospital lobby. After being appraised of the facts of the case, they declined to accept the case because in their view, there is going to be very little left after their legal fees have been taken off and we as a family are better off settling for what State Farm is prepared to offer- the death benefit amounting to $ 10,000.00. I came away from that meeting with an even more profound sense of loss and injustice done to my father who passed away a few minutes ago on that afternoon of December 27, 2011. I cannot overcome my indignation at this injustice because even though there is no price tag that can be attached to the cost of life, it was a grave injustice that my father, although he was already 88 years old at the time of his death but was still strong and at the pink of his health and looking forward to several years of his life, will be reduced to a simple statistic-“deceased-worth 10K” and funds approved for release. And so upon my mother’s and family’s consent, I was tasked to explore the feasibility of appointing another lawyer to pursue the case and I became the designated Personal Representative of the family. I know it will be a difficult case to handle because there are critical factors mitigating against the claim. The crux of it all was my father’s refusal to be taken to the hospital when he was struck by the motorist who crossed the red light as my father was crossing Blanding Boulevard. This was witnessed by the ambulance and police personnel who responded at that time. I think that my father’s declination to be taken to the hospital was due to the fact that the motorist who struck him turned out to be the daughter-in-law of my father’s best friend which may have lead him to misperceive the true extent of his injuries as several witnesses later on testified that he was hit very hard. He later on collapsed that afternoon in a kennel park. My mother subsequently did not wish to press charges or claims against the motorist, again on account of family ties of friendship, and the motorist was later on issued only a citation and ordered by the court judge to complete a safety course. So it is in the context of all of these that I literally stumbled upon the Butler Law Group’s website. I remember that moment particularly well. It was a simple Google search captioned “ best injury lawyer-Jacksonville, Florida”. There was a plethora of law firms that surfaced as well as those with banners advertising their services. It was as if an unknown hand led me immediately first and last to the Butler Law Group website. As I read on the cases it successfully handled, I had no doubt at all at that moment that this is the best law firm who can best represent my family.

    Posted by a Brain Injury client

    After my traumatic brain injury, I needed a lawyer and none came more highly recommended than Howard Butler. He understood more of what I was going through than I did. Howard made sure I had the best care and proper treatment. Prior to that, it wouldn't have been possible for me to write these statements. He fought for and protected my rights for more than 11 years, until a settlement was reached. I truly believe that it cost him more to represent me over the years, with multiple court appearances, than the fee he received at settlement. Howard, I don't know what I would have done without your protection and representation. You were heaven sent. Thank You!
