Mr. Howie represented me in a case where I was charged with Rape in the 2nd degree for having consensual sex even though I thought the girl was 17. I am just 18 but was in danger of having to register as a sex offender for the rest of my life because I didn’t know how old the girl was! I thought it was wrong but I learned the law was really strict in this area. With the best attorney in Alabama, Mitchell J. Howie on my side I was able to get that charge dismissed with prejudice and not have to register and not have to go to jail. I am thankful for the best Huntsville criminal defense attorney Mitchell J. Howie for saving the rest of my life!!!

Mr. Howie helped me while I was deployed overseas and kept me up to date on everything dealing with my case in a fast paced manner. He showed dedication throughout the whole process. He responds quickly to calls, emails, and text messages. I would recommend him to everyone. He was very helpful and showed compassion during this hard time in my life. I once again thank you sir.

I found myself in need of a lawyer. I had never had more than a traffic ticket and now I was faced a serious class A misdemeanor that could ruin my career. I need a lawyer that understood the ins and outs of the military legal structure. I found Mitchell Howie. I was impressed with his experience in dealing with military base JAG cases. His experience as a JAG lawyer and knowledge of Magistrate law proved to be just what my case needed. He skillfully went through the legal process getting my case dismissed before I ever had to see a judge. Mitchell is professional, skilled and always updating you on the case as things unfold. I highly recommend Mitchell for anyone needing a lawyer dealing with military or federal cases. You won't be steered wrong.

I am a caregiver to my Wounded Warrior son. Since he has Severe Traumatic Brain Injury I was appointed his Fiduciary. The VA accused me of misusing his funds. They went from $16k in May, 2015, to $66k in June to $149k in October. I began searching for someone to help me and was having a hard time finding someone. In November I found Mitchell Howie. He was a God-send!!
He led me through the process of appealing the decision. He knew things to say and ask about that I never would have known. He was able to find the right people at the VA to speak to. I never found a VA person close to being near to anyone who could help me! Mr. Howie also had to deal with the company who bonded me. The VA was going to get the money from them and they were about to pay the VA (which in turn meant the bond company would come back on me to repay them for paying the VA) until Mr. Howie told them not to pay because the amount would be reduced. I am so glad he told them to wait to pay!
Mr. Howie and I sent various documents and receipts and proof. Well actually, I just faxed or scanned items to Mr. Howie and he did the rest. The VA lowered the amount of misuse several times. At last count, the beginning of April, 2016, the amount of misuse was a little more than $15k. We were happy that the amount was lowered from over $149k to $15k!! We discussed my filing bankruptcy so I wouldn't have to pay the VA any money back. We knew how the system worked even though we knew that I was innocent.
I can't begin to describe how full of stress I was during all that time! I couldn't sleep or eat. I became depressed. I didn't want to leave the house. Even to take my son to the doctors at the VA was mentally exhausting. I was afraid everyone there would think I was abusing my son!
I had quit a job I loved and made great money at to be a full time, 24/7/365 caregiver to my son. The VA made me feel like trash by accusing me of misusing my incapacitated sons money! I knew I hadn't done anything wrong. I had every single penny accounted for but the VA wouldn't talk to me about it. But, they talked to Mr. Howie!
On April 16th, 2016, I received the "Final Misuse Determination" which stated that there was NO MISUSE found! Not only that, but the new amount I was going to owe the VA was now $0.00!!!!
If it weren't for Mr. Howie I seriously have no idea what would have become of me! He was kind, caring and concerned for me. He was always on my side. I've dealt with the VA since 2010 and I couldn't navigate the system to help myself. I know Mr. Howie won't consider himself a Hero, but that's what he is to my family! He not only saved my mind, he also saved my Spirit.

LET ME FIRST SAY, I KNOW THAT IF MR. HOWIE HAD NOT ACCEPTED MY CASE I WOULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN THE RESULTS FOR MY CASE THAT HE DID! I wanted to plead guilty but Mr. Howie told me no because he knew what was best. He even told me not to ask to plead guilty again and boy he was right! I hired Mitchell J. Howie, the best Huntsville Criminal Defense attorney after I was searching on the internet for the best attorney in Huntsville. In my research, I found that like me he was veteran and had been a military defense lawyer. After hiring him, I learned that he is one of the Top Lawyers in Alabama and One of the Best Attorneys in America. Mr. Howie was willing to work with me since I was a veteran with a brain injury even though I had limited income. He showed that he truly cares about his brothers in the military. He came through big time and got all the charges against me DISMISSED and I didn't even have to pay court costs which was tremendously helpful to me and my wife. If you want the best attorney in Alabama, hire Mitchell J. Howie today!!! He will help you and he cares about your case!

I hired Mr. Howie to represent me not only because his reviews were spot on for what I was looking for but he is a veteran. I served in the military and for me I knew Mr. Howie had great motivation to possibly get my case dismissed. He worked diligently on my case spending numerous of hours with me and my witnesses. It is because of his hard work and dedication to his job my case was dismissed without prejudice. I couldn't thank him enough for what he has done for me and my family.

Huntsville Criminal Defense Attorney Mitchell J. Howie was appointed to represent me on a Class A felony and a Class C felony. I was at first hesitant because you know how appointed attorneys can be. I quickly learned that I had been appointed the best criminal defense attorney in Huntsville when I learned that he was recognized as one of the Top 10 Attorneys Under 40 in Alabama in Criminal Defense and as one of the Nation’s Top One percent of attorneys! I didn’t have a felony record when Mr. Howie was appointed to me and he was able to successfully get not one BUT TWO felony charges dismissed. I was looking at a minimum of 20 years in prison if I didn’t get the best criminal defense attorney to help me beat the false charges! If you are looking for the best criminal lawyer then call Mitchell J. Howie today! He took care of me and kept my record clean. I am grateful for his great criminal defense!

I found Mitchell J. Howie online after I was arrest and was looking for the best criminal defense attorney. I found most of the reviews were positive and stated that Mitchell was able to get their charges dismissed. I contacted Mitchell and he immediately called me back to set an appointment. Mitchell always returned my phone calls and responded to emails. Mitchell helped me get my charges dismissed with prejudice in a short period of time.
