  • Deanna Rae Bachman

    I've had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Howie for several years. As a former co-worker I feel very confident recommending Andrew to anyone in need of an attorney for a family law related matter such as divorce/child custody or appellate case. Andrew can handle just about any type of case, no matter how complicated, and helps his clients get the best possible result. He's always been a leader in the areas of law he practices and is very dedicated to his clients.
