I hired him to represent me at a Temporary Orders hearing with little advance warning. He got the info he needed to present an excellent case which resulted in an award significantly below what had been offered beforehand. He was professional at all times in spite of opposing lawyers's tactics. I highly recommend him.

Howard was recommended to me by a close friend who used him for her divorce. I worked with him for almost a year and can honestly say he is an all-in lawyer who truly cares about his clients and their unique situations. He asks probing questions and intently listens, helping you work through the emotions and uncertainties that come with this process. He is no drama, tells you like it is, and does it all with extreme compassion and clarity.Time is at a premium during a divorce on many levels, and he makes it efficient and as painless as possible. Howard has done this for a long time, so has seen it all and provided a constant voice of reason. One of the many things that I respect him for is his honesty and that he sets clear expectations. His priority is getting his clients through the process as painlessly and effectively as possible - which he did for me, and my friend. He was a tremendous help to to me during a very challenging time of my life. I could not have asked for a better outcome - or process in getting to the end. He and his assistant Cheryl are top notch and will recommend them every chance I get.

Going through divorce proceedings can be an extremely emotionally traumatic experience.. with Howard, I found strength, assurance and was able to make it through, make hard decisions and hold it together. I felt that with his level of experience, he made it as painless as can be, especially so during mediation. He was able to advice and guide me through the mediation process efficiently so we accomplish a fair settlement within the allocated time and prevent the negotiations from escalating to high court. He made a seemingly difficult process as painless as can be and for that I'm thoroughly thankful.
Howard came to me as a professional referral and I'm glad I chose Howard. It was a choice between another attorney that charges approximately two thirds of Howard's rate who does not employ a paralegal and Howard who only charges his rate when he's working on the case and the majority of the time, bills at less than half his rate when Cheryl his paralegal who is also the Notary Public, is managing the communications and paperwork. I believe that had I gone with the other lawyer who was also recommended to me, I would have probably spent more overall and I'm not sure if we would have been able to come to a settlement as quickly. With Howard's "bulldog" demeanor that he unleashes on occasion, he gets things done.
I believe Howard's model is more efficient and cost effective. Cheryl, his paralegal, is a joy to work with. She's efficient, effective and very easily accessible and responsive. Everything you'll want in a supportive role that's this significant and probably more time intensive. At times, when I find myself completely at a loss, concerned for mine and other's safety, she even steps in at a personal level to offer her 2 cents.
While the entirety of severing ties with my past did drag on for years after the divorce was official, the part that Howard and Cheryl was involved with was quick and as painless as can be. I very much appreciate their expertise, usually delivered timely, which allowed me to made quick decisions and move on. I would not have moved on with my life as quickly had it not been for them and for that I owe them big. I very much respect what they do as it's certainly not easy to do what they do! With Howard, you can be assured that you have the right man for the job. He gets things done when you need it the most.
