Better Than Average Results
I was a victim in an automobile accident a few yrs ago. Attorney Citron handled the case for me, and got me a settlement from Geico. In the last two years since then I have spoken with clients and friends who are attorneys and I have reviewed with them the circumstances of my accident case. Several of these attorneys have complimented Howard Citron, saying that they would not have gotten as much for me if they had handled the negotiations with Geico instead of Howard. It is nice to know that I had chosen a superb attorney, and that even Howard's peers compliment his work and accomplishments.

A lawyer you can trust and who will work tirelessly to get you a great result!
As a fellow South Florida lawyer, there is only a small list of lawyers that I would trust to refer clients to, and Howard's is at the very top of the list. I know that he will be there to listen to the client's needs and will fight for them from start to finish. Lawsuits are tough and you need someone who knows the ropes and will stick with you until the end. Howard is that lawyer!

serious car accident
My sister was in a very serious car accident. We called Howard Citron and he was there for my family. He was able to make sure my sister got to the right doctors and helped us get the most we could from the insurance company. Thanks Howard.

Best attorney in South Florida!!
I'm in a profession that requires a wide range of legal services and Howard Citron was referred to me by a friend who's used him for years. Simply put, I've never enjoyed working with a lawyer more than Howard. He is professional in every sense of the word and his results are second to none. I've used some of the biggest firms in the past, and they can't come close to Howard in terms of attention, communication, and overall capability.
