  • Richard D. Lyons

    I worked with Howard on a medical malpractice case several years ago. He's a top-notch lawyer who is devoted to his craft, and I highly recommend him.

  • Judd S Nemiro

    I endorse this lawyer. Howard is an excellent lawyer and an asset to the legal community. He is my go-to person when I have a question about personal injury. Howard is very knowledgeable in his practice areas and is devoted to the highest level of representation for his clients. I never hesitate to refer potential clients to Howard when their needs fall outside of my practice area or I have a conflict of interest that prevents me from taking the case. I know that Howard will provide the same high level of service that I would want if I were hiring an attorney, and I am confident that any potential client will be in good hands with Howard.
