Exceptional lawyer.
Torrence Howell was direct and honest throughout the process of handling my mother's estate, which he settled with efficiency and caring. I would highly recommend him to others looking to acquire an exceptional lawyer.

Great Law Firm
My ex-wife hired an attorney which prompted me to do so for our divorce. Torrence Howell was highly recommended from a friend of mine who used Torrence’s services for a divorce just like mine. The results came out much better than he ever thought it would. With all things being equal I felt Torrence would be able to achieve the same results for me and he did. All of my correspondences were with Tiffany after the initial meeting I had with Torrence. Tiffany would always answer my questions within the next business day or less via email, or I would just call if I needed a quick answer. She was professional and easy to talk with. She would explain things to me in layman's terms so I would understand what to do and she was always very patient. Torrence got me the divorce I needed and I can sleep at night. I now know there aren’t any loose ends that can come back at me later. I think what mostly made this a success was the knowledge and experience of Torrence and Tiffany. Torrence was straightforward with me and didn’t charge a penny more than what his reasonable quote was. That is someone who I want on my side.

Best Lawyer and Staff
Torrence and his paralegal Tiffany were the absolute best. In the consultation with Torrence alone I discovered my divorce was going to leave me with much more than I had realized. If I had just went with a mediator like I had originally planned I'd have been lucky to keep my house. After Torrence delivered on everything he explained to me in the consultation am not only keeping the house but doing much better than I thought. Tiffany is absolutely sent from heaven. She was always available to explain things to me and give incredible advice. Anything she couldn't answer she'd get from Torrence and get back to me in a very timely manner. Torrence's original quote held true to the end. My attorney fees were literally one third of my ex-wife's and she wasn't satisfied with anything about her experience.

Happy customer
Tory was highly recommended to us. We needed an attorney to defend my fiancé in case against his ex-wife. As soon as we reviewed the case with Tory he put us at ease. He assured us that he was going to do everything in his power to win the case for us, especially since the ex was lying. It took 4 years but in the end we did win. Tory and his staff are all very professional and understanding. They were very patient with us when it came to payments. This was a tremendous help since we live pay check to pay check. He is an honest attorney, which is hard to find now a days. Tory allows monthly payments at a very reasonable amount. My fiancé and I both thank GOD for bringing Tory and his staff to us during this horrible situation. We will definitely be recommending him to our friends, family and co-workers. You, your staff and your families are in our prayers, always.

Best Lawyer around!
I needed a great lawyer who also charged fair prices to fight for me on my child support case, which we all know that’s hard to come across these days. I was lucky enough to have friend of mine that referred me to Torrence Howell so I called him. I scheduled and appointment to meet with him, when I met with Mr. Howell he was very nice but also seemed to know what he was talking about. So I hired Mr. Howell and he fought and got pretty much everything I was asking for. I have referred several friends to Mr. Howell and they all have been as satisfied as I’ve been. Mr. Howell and his assistant Tiffany are true professionals and well make you feel very comfortable going through a difficult ordeal which is going to and through court.
