Howard is the absolute best. I've known him professionally for over 20 years. He is a very capable, very careful lawyer. The entire focus of his practice is Estate & Business Planning and Estate Administration. He is very patient with his clients, is able to explain complicated things in a way that they can easily understand. He has over 35 years' experience, and has my highest personal recommendation.
