He FIGHTS! He WINS!
I had three previous attorneys who were cheaper per hour but they never fought for me. I hired Mr Howard and discovered he DOESN'T play games to run up billable hours. So in the end he was MUCH cheaper and I actually WON! He has an impeccable understanding of the Family Court system which gives him winning strategies!
