Upon graduation, he worked for two years in the Gulf of Mexico oil fields. He practiced law in Galveston, Texas, from 1984 until 1988 when he returned to Huntsville, Alabama. The Law firm of Mitch Howie has been located at 107 North Side Square, Huntsville, Alabama, since 1991.


Mitch Howie is a member of the Alabama State Bar Association, the Madison County Bar Association, and and has practiced bankruptcy in all Alabama Courts and the Southern District of Texas. He is licensed to practice in state and federal Courts in Alabama and before the 11th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals in Atlanta, Georgia.

They have three children, Schuyler, Turner and Cailin who were active in film, music, gourmet cooking, horseback riding, soccer and other sports. Turner is attending junior college, working at Watercress Restuarant and Cailin is a Senior at Madison County High and has been accepted at the University of Alabama.


Mitch Howie represents individuals and small business owners in legal matters from corporate organization to dissolution and is a full service law firm. Legal business services range from determining what type of organization whether it be partnership, incorporation or a limited liability corporation. Individual legal services include adoption and divorce to estate planning and probating a will. The firm believes that a successful business or personal financial plan requires legal expertise in multiple areas. Mitch Howie successfully protected a minority shareholders rights in "squeeze-out merger" in Ex Parte Baron Services, Inc. 874 So. 2d 5445 ( Ala. 2003). In that case the Alabama Supreme Court disallowed the use of a minority shareholder discount in valuing the shareholders stock.


In representing injured individuals the law firm has successfully litigated or settled hundreds of personal injury cases with an emphasis on automobile accidents and uninsured motorists.


Mitch Howie is also licensed to practice in the Federal Bankruptcy Courts in Alabama. Debts discharged range anywhere from medical bills to car loans credit cards and pay day loan debts.


In the area of family law, the firm has attempted to obtain a fair and equitable division of marital property and the payment of child support based upon Alabama law. In Stewart v. Stewart 771 So., 2d 484 the Ala., Court of Civil Appeals overturned the Madison County Circuit Court requiring that there be a good reason for variation from judicial guidelines of child support awards.


Mitch Howie's nephew is Mitchell J. Howie. Mitchell has recently left the Judge Advocate General Corps of the United States Air Force. Mitchell is a licensed Texas attorney and is providing additional legal support on cases at the Law Office of Mitchell Howie. While both attorneys are solo practitioners, each Mitchell relies on the other for advice and counsel with respect to the most effective representation of all their individual clients. Mitchell J.

I could not be more pleased with Mr. Howie's legal services. I worked in Government Contracting for 25+ years and interfaced with attorneys on a daily basis. Mr. Howie is, by far, the most knowledgeable and pleasant lawyer I have ever worked with. My explained the seriousness and implications of filing bankruptcy. He definitely eased my anxiety about the process. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal assistance. Also, his staff (especially Kim) was friendly and responsive every time I called with questions, which was probably 7 or 8 times.

Fantastic Bankruptcy Attorney!
Mitchell's professionalism and care for my interests during a complicated legal process was exceptional. From start to finish, I could always depend on Mitchell to clearly communicate the law, my available options, and my desires to the court. All of which helped me navigate my bankruptcy. Highly recommended!

I've been lucky enough to have Steve represent me in a couple areas , both having a great outcome. I would not even waste my time contacting another attorney - he is on my speed dial list and will remain there.

"I moved to Huntsville in 2013 and met Mitch through a mutual friend. He has a good reputation in the legal community here, and he has a solid background with many years of experience. He is competent in a variety of legal areas, and if he cannot help you, he will know who can. I consider him both a colleague and a friend, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing legal advice or representation."
