Howard Comfort III was a "Godsend" - highly recommend for any and all Family or Criminal Case needs
I was a client of Mr. Howard Comfort III, on a matter involving driving. He did an excellent job representing me and was successful at getting my charges dropped to a much lesser charge. Mr. Comfort always took the time to take my calls, and was patient with me, answering my questions and concerns. He helped me to get this unfortunate incident dealt with quickly, and with minimal penalty and court fees and even more importantly fought to keep my driving record from having unfavorable charges that would have hurt me in my future endeavors. I was extremely happy and satisfied with his professional abilities and knowledge handling my case. It’s hard to find a professional that will accept a payment plan, especially for a situation such as this, however Mr. Comfort was understanding and considerate and allowed me to make a smaller retainer fee with scheduled monthly payments to pay off the balance. He was a godsend! I would highly recommend Mr. Comfort to any and all prospective clients as I know firsthand that he does an outstanding job and deserves and enjoys the respect of the entire Legal Community as well as his Clients. I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone needing representation on any FAMILY MATTER or facing CRIMINAL CHARGES. “Thank you so much! Mr. Comfort, you helped me through a very scary and difficult time and your efforts will be forever appreciated!”.

Thank you for a job well done!
I utilized Mr. Comfort's services on a family law case involving custody and visitation of my daughter. My former attorney had overcharged me by many thousands of dollars and did more damage than good for my situation. Mr. Comfort came into a nightmare case and was able to turn things around and undo some of the damage made by my prior attorney who had mis-advised me and overcharged me.

Great results!
I was very pleased with Mr. Comfort's services. He has represented me multiple times over the years and has always done an outstanding job. He has always got great results for me, and he is very personable and his assistant Prima is great as well. I would recommend his service to absolutely anyone in need of a family law or criminal law attorney.

Great Attorney and Person, Highly Recommended!
I hired Howard to represent me and dispute a restraining order. He got it dismissed and I have finished medical school with no other issues with my crazy, delusional mother-in-law. I recommend him to friends and colleagues. He is also a great person, very easy to approach, talk to, and fast at responding! He has advised me on other areas of law as well.

Wonderful Lawyer... Amazing assistant!
Howard and his assistant, Prima helped me with every step of the very long and difficult divorce process. I could not have been happier with the final outcome. After my divorce was final, I referred a friend who needed a criminal lawyer. Again, the outcome was beyond their expectations! I would highly recommend Howard to anyone in need of a GREAT Divorce or Criminal Law Lawyer!

Drug case/ weapons charge
Howard, was very informative and I would recommend him. He is quite, but when he speaks it is not all good. He will say things to make the judge think twice about what the prosecuter says. I was looking at 15 years for drug possession with intent to sale and Howard got the case dropped by those dirty police of Lakewood WA who go outside there territory to do a sting and then bust the wrong people and then plant stuff in innocent people's cars just to make the police force look good. I was very please with his ability to dig and pick apart the the prosecuting attorney. Good Job Howard.

Mr. Comfort is unprofessional, negligencent, inattentive and very unresponsive. I would not recommend him!
Howard charged us an exorbitant amount for doing nothing, but making our case worse. The two times we were in court he showed up late, once over an hour straight out of the shower with wet hair. He did not argue the points of the case, did not keep us informed, and was impossible to reach. Do not use Howard Comfort. He is not worth it. He will not represent you well and it will be nothing but a headache.
