4.5 stars 10 totalReview Thomas Howlett
Posted by Mark
Tom represented me in a Med Mal case involving a major metropolitan hospital. I had sustained injuries following a surgery that left me disabled and which cost me my career because of a 2 year, intense rehab program required to regain my functionality. I was awarded a substantial settlement because of Tom's tenacity, legal expertise and knowledge of Medical Malpractice. He was always accessible and very patient when explaining the litigation process of my case and treated me with the utmost respect. Tom was also compassionate and supportive. Especially during some of the emotionally draining times when I was fatigued and in pain. Words can not describe what Tom Howlett has meant to my wife and I. I strongly endorse him to anyone who needs legal representation, particularly in the area of personal injury. I know a lot of attorneys, some that are good Friends, but Tom flat out is the best!!!

We greatly appreciate Tom's hard work getting our case settled.
At times it seemed very daunting, but we listened carefully to his recommendation's, thought's and advice.
I will recommend Tom to anyone that I know who might need a Malpractice Attorney.

Our daughter died in a boating accident while tubing with life-long friends. This tragic and heart rendering accident involved multiple participants, boat owner and boat driver, with multiple insurance companies. Thomas did a wonderful job, forcing the insurance companies to present an acceptable settlement. The insurance companies tried several ploys to claim they were not responsible, however Tom was always one-step ahead of them. He used the law, the legal system, and negotiation to back the insurance companies into a corner, and force them to make an offer, they did not want to make.
I strongly believe we received the best settlement possible by working with Tom Howlett.
On a personal note, Tom was wonderful to work with. The lose of our daughter devastated my wife and I. Tom was very compassionate and understanding with my wife.
In summary, Tom is a very good lawyer, who knows the law, and how to use it, to obtain the best possible outcome.
I highly recommend Tom Howlett. He is a good person and a darn good lawyer.

Tom Howlett's outstanding expertise and exceptional efficiency in a legal malpractice/breach of contract ligation provided myself with a positive result in which He recovered a personal injury award that was embezzled/stolen from me from a former lawyer.
Tom communicated in plain English rather than "legalese"
to prevent misunderstanding and wasted effort. All my concerns and questions were answered correctly and quickly when needed.

When I was looking for a legal malpractice attorney, I approached a former Circuit Judge for advice.
"Who would you hire(?)" I asked.
"Tom Howlett," the judge replied.
"He cleaned my clock!"
So I went to "The Clock Cleaner."
The judge was right.
Thomas Howlett, was thoughtful, strategic, and most importantly, always prepared.
He took several months to review my case. He went through 15 cases of documents, looking for the facts.
Tom's assessment of the undisputed damages: Ten million dollars.
He got every penny that was available.
This is a lawyer of unimpeachable integrity.
Superior work ethic.
And a strategic thinker.
He called every Friday afternoon without fail to give me an update.
He returned phone calls promptly, and responded to emails within 24 hours.
I know the other lawyers that do legal malpractice.
Tom Howlett is in a class by himself.
He is what other lawyers aspire to be: Effective.
He prepares each case for trial, and he is a fearless litigator.
If a case can be settled for maximum value, Mr. Howlett will recommend what's in the client's best interest.
He will not settle a client's case short to avoid a trial.
If you have been wronged by a lawyer, your first call should be to Thomas Howlett, a specialist in Legal Malpractice litigation.

While I can appreciate Mr. Howlett's gentle and caring style, as a client, I eventually learned that the contract he used is not typical. Mr. Howlett would receive his fee only if I settled during mediation or arbitration. If, instead, I decided to go to trial, he would receive absolutely nothing. That means that, although I would have benefitted significantly by going to trial, Mr. Howlett convinced me to agree to a settlement that was only a small fraction of the value of my case. Personally, I was surprised that the lawyer whom I thought had integrity, chose this approach. Before hiring Mr. Howlett, I advise reading the contract very carefully and comparing it to other personal injury lawyer’s contracts. Good luck.

Can't say enough about Tom. The first thing that comes to mind is GRATITUDE. Tom was first and foremost just a kind human being, supporting us through the web of confusion related to my son's wrongful death suit. I always felt my wife and I were genuinely cared about, and that the legal matters were being handled by an extremely competent and effective person., While I've heard horror stories of lawyers not communicating with clients, not so with Tom. Communication was excellent and his great written and verbal skills made the complex process crystal clear. You CANNOT go wrong with Tom on your side and he secured us a settlement well beyond anything I anticipated.

Tom Howlett is the best attorney that you could ever have in your corner! He not only is thorough and fair, but a "bull dog" when needed. He'll fight hard for you. Tom worked extremely hard on my case, and I was very impressed by his professionalism and empathy. When I retained him as my attorney; emotionally I wasn't in a good place. When we first met, I was explaining to Tom (through my tears) about my situation. I remember thinking, at that moment, he's speaking to me with such a kind and gentle voice. He allowed me time to cry and I never felt rushed to finish my conversation. Tom was very thorough in explaining how he would handle my case. He kept me posted, explained any delays or changes, and he made sure that I completely understood what would take place every step of the way. He is compassonite, professional, thorough, and truly a wonderful attorney. I highly recommend Tom Howlett!!

Mr. Howlett represented my husband in an auto injury lawsuit. He was very professional, knowledgeable and most of all genuine in his concern for my husband's well-being. Mr. Howlett was patient and explained the litigation process thoroughly to my husband and I. He provided guidance and support with all the medical/insurance paperwork that came along with the injury.
Mr. Howlett has a great work ethic and we were very pleased with the outcome of the lawsuit since it was better than what we had expected. My husband and I would highly recommend Mr. Howlett to potential clients.
