Won my trial!
I had Brad Howenstein as my attorney. He did a very, very good job. We had a jury trial for a disallowed condition. Jury was out 7 hours and we won! Congratulations to him!

Unanimous verdicts!
I had a very good experience with Brad helping me with my disallowed claim and putting such hard work for me and turning my disallowed claim into a win in front of a jury of my peers and allowing me to move forward in my life. Thank you so much.

Great lawyer
I tore my rotator cuff from a fall at work.After being turned down administratively it went to a jury trial.Mr Howenstein got the case with only ten days to prepare. Couldn't believe how much knowledge he knew about the shoulder,muscles,tendons etc.His cross exam of the defense doctor was outstanding.After forty five minutes of deliberation we won.Mr Howenstein is a true professional in every sense of the word.He's my lawyer and will recommend him highly.
