This review is from a person who hired this attorney.

Simply the best.
One time in my life, I hired a lawyer for a simple will to provide for my young children. Beyond that, in my 60 plus years, my experience with the law came from television. Then the carpet got pulled out from underneath me and I needed help. A good friend contacted Barbara Howard and I found myself living a life I never imagined or hope for. Barbara Howard could not have been a more perfect person to walk me through these unchartered waters. She tolerated my highly emotional adjustment to my new normal, all the while steering me forward. She spoke clearly and framed things in reality while making me feel hopeful about my future. I wanted her to take over my life and fix my problems and she wanted me to feel part of the process and a partner in my decisions. When it is imperative to trust someone, you want that someone to be Barbara Howard. She was the best parts of sage legal mind and kind and tolerant partner. She is brilliant and has a depth of experience and contacts you can't match any where. I was not the easiest person to work with, I was not happy with losing my life partner and watching my family unit reshape while facing retirement. I don't know if I could have come out the other side as intact with anyone else but Barbara. I don't miss the collaborative process of divorcing, but I will always miss a chance to connect with Barb and feel her strength and compassion. If you are reading this because you find yourself in a similar situation, God Bless you. Thanks, Barb, for telling me at the beginning I would make it through and guiding me there. I am all the better for knowing her.
