“My brother was charged by local prosecutors with the brutal murder of a 25-year-old male. Police claimed my brother used an automatic weapon to shoot this young man more than 30 times. My brother was charged with murder, thrown into jail, and was denied any opportunity for bond.

My family and I were paralyzed with fear believing he would spend his entire life behind bars for a crime he never committed. We were not familiar with the criminal justice system and, most importantly, we knew nothing amount hiring a lawyer to represent my brother.

We talked to several attorneys who immediately started discussing some form of plea with the prosecutors for these outrageous charges. My family wanted a lawyer who was willing to fight for my brother’s freedom.

A family friend suggested that if we wanted a real fighting warrior, we should call Paul Howard. Mr. Howard got involved with the case and everything changed immediately. He never bragged about the size of his staff or how many cases he had won in the past. He never made outlandish promises about the outcome of the upcoming trial. All he did was to look us straight in the eye and suggest we get buckled up for the fight. And fight he did!

His investigation of the matter was superb. He discovered witnesses and evidence that the State had completely overlooked. His closing argument was so compelling; I saw my brother smile for the first time. In less than an hour, the jury acquitted my brother.

Mr. Howard, several years later, spoke at my mother’s funeral. This man will fight and never forget YOUR NAME.
