Howard is an extremely hard working and diligent attorney. I have seen him take phone calls from clients at all hours of the day to make sure they were comfortable and had their questions answered. There are few attorneys with the work ethic and commitment to his clients and I highly recommend him under any circumstance to anyone seeking representation for family law.
