Myself and 2 of my children were rear-ended at 6am on a Thursday morning. Completely smashed in the back end of my suv which landed us in the ER. After speaking with a respected leader of the community, I was referred to Chatham/Gilder/Howell/Pittman aka J. Howell took over my case and handled everything from my insurance, the other partys insurance, as well as the health insurance inquiries. He frequently updated me on any movement forward and was always willing to answer any additional questions. The staff were always very pleasant throughout the process as well. Upon the release of the final settlement, I was extremely pleased with the amount and getting in and out in 15 min. The entire experience with J. Howell/staff was quick, easy and stress-free. I can honestly say, he was a lawyer that listened and got the job done!!

Personal injury case
I fell while on a commercial property. I had to have a titanium prosthetic put in my elbow. It took 4 months of grueling, time consuming painful physical therapy just so I could get the use of my arm back. It would take me a year to recover enough to function without pain. I'm now partially disabled and my life is forever changed. Mr. Howell cared about me and my family. I never once got the feeling it was about the money. He was there every step of the way and got me a great settlement. I would rather have my arm back and I'm sad just writing this review. If you're in a situation like this I highly recommend Mr. Howell.

Great Attorney- Jamie Howell
I was in a car accident and had to have surgery due to a back injury. Before meeting Jamie Howell, I hired other Law Firms, but was not pleased. I met with Attorney Jamie Howell and was pleased with his disposition. My gut feeling told me to "relax, he's the one ." I did exactly what my gut feeling said. Jamie Howell has a comforting attitude; he's professional and smart; all of my phone calls was returned in a timely manner. Attorney Howell really showed me that he cares about his clients. My confident in him never wavered. I would use him again and highly recommend him to family and friends. Thank you

Car accident
Mr. Jamie Howell handled the case of sister after she passed away in a car accident. He was more than helpful. Mr. Jamie checked on my family and I every day and also after the case was over. He made this difficult time much easier for us. Mr. Jamie is a very good person and I highly recommend him.

Jamie Howell Jr
Mr. Howell handled my minor son's accident claim with little help from me. He was able to reduce the hospital and doctors bills and obtained the maximum amount of liability from insurance.

Car Accident
I hired Mr. Howell after I was rear ended on Goodman Rd in August 2015. He settled my case in a timely manner and was very professional during the entire process.

Jamie took my case knowing due to the nature of the issue, it would provide no revenue for his firm. He and his staff worked diligently on my behalf for two years until a resolution was finally reached. I am even able to contact him now if I have questions. God lead me to Jamie and Jamie led me to some peace.
