I am a Birmingham, Alabama tax attorney at Meadows & Howell, LLC. While the focus of the firm is primarily tax law, we have a diverse practice that enables us to provide a broad range of legal services. Our services cover a variety of legal financial services related to tax law, including business law, estate planning and asset protection.


I have successfully negotiated the repayment or settlement of tax debts with the I.R.S. and Alabama Department of Revenue on the behalf of individual and business clients.  I am also experienced in audits and appeals, and routinely correct assessments so that they reflect an accurate amount of taxes.

He answered a tax question
Mr. Howell is a very nice and patient man. I had some difficulty asking the question in a way he could understand the info I sought but he hung in with me and gave me a very comprehensive and easily understood answer. I would highly recommend him.

Review for Brad Howell
I had the privilege of hiring Mr. Brad Howell to provide counsel for delinquent taxes. He is very professional and knowledgeable in this area. He did a great job at relieving my stress and anxiety as far as communication with the IRS. He was able to secure an installment agreement on my behalf to satisfy the obligation. I would strongly recommend Mr. Howell and his firm for legal advice especially concerning taxes.

Attorney Brad Howell, one of the in best the business.
Attorney Howell has been assisting me with federal and state tax issues for approximately four years. His approach to my tax issues has been first, a thorough gathering of the facts followed by precise application of federal or state statures. Attorney Howell responds quickly to phones calls and keeps me informed and up to date on my tax issues.

Positive first experience
Overall a good experience. Brad knows his stuff, and his rates seem fairly reasonable. The process took longer than I liked, but I understand that unfortunately, anything with the government tends to take a lot of time. I really appreciated the in-depth email responses. It made me feel like he is truly dedicated to my needs as a client.

Easy to understand and work with
Mr. Howell was very professional, reassuring and confident in his handling of my affairs. He kept me informed, answered questions and always conducted himself in a friendly and approachable manner. He took his time to explain every step and to make sure I was always up to speed.

Brad, excellent tax lawyer
Very knowledgeable. Responds very quickly to queries and quick and aggressive with IRS. Good service with reasonable prices and all charges itemized. Brad negotiated a very favorable deal for me for a structured payoff of back taxes. I recommend him highly.

Excellent tax firm
I had a tax debt that I had been stuck with for weeks. I didn't know what to do. These guys took care of all of that for me. They set me up on a reasonable payment plan with the I.R.S. Their prices are reasonable, their work is quality, and they are extremely friendly. I'd recommend them to anyone needing legal services, especially if you owe back taxes.
