The Best Divorce Lawyer Madison County, AL! I was going through a divorce as a federal employee and needed someone with experience navigating the federal benefits plans, and someone willing to fight for my best interests. I chose Mitchell J. Howie because of his familiarity with the federal system and his reputation within the legal community. Now that it is over, I can tell you without hesitation that I made the right choice! Mr. Howie is fantastic! The communication was better than I ever expected, he is very knowledgeable in the laws governing the issues I was facing, nothing had to be “researched”, his flexibility was very impressive when things took different turns, and in the end, everything was perfect! My interests were protected, the documents spot on, and the entire team worked aggressively for a favorable outcome! If you find yourself in the unfortunate circumstance of going through a divorce, you will find none better in Madison County, Alabama to protect you, your assets, and your future!

Best Criminal Defense Attorney in the Southeast Let's face it: if you find yourself in the unfortunate position of being charged criminally, your life gets turned upside down until the process is over. Mr. Howie has been my attorney for 2 years now. He's been with me from the very beginning. I can confidently say that he treated my case with the same care and attention that he would give a member of his own family. And when you find yourself having to do battle with the state, trust me- you WANT a legal warrior. Mr. Howie was fantastic about discussing strategy with me and also giving me the pro's and con's of each decision. He knows the law inside and out, and he is the best litigator that I've ever seen. I compared it to watching him play chess, while the state played checkers. Some attorneys are just trying to take your money- if that's what you want, more power to you. But if you're like me, and want to fight false allegations, Mr. Howie is the attorney you want. He takes his cases personally, and I am proud to call him a friend after our successful fight against the state. Do yourself a favor and hire an attorney that gives you a legal advantage. Hire someone that opposing counsel DREADS going up against in court. Hire Mr. Howie

1 Questions Answered
Q. I've recently been served a Paternity/CS summons. I'm willing to pay CS,can I avoid court, testing and visitation?
A: You will need to contact an experienced family law attorney in your jurisdiction to address the specifics of your question. However, generally you can certainly agree to pay a certain amount of child support and not pursue your visitation rights. You are going to have to respond to the summons within the time allowed by law or a default judgment may be entered against you. And I would definitely encourage you to ensure the child is yours through proper DNA testing, the testing is cheap and easy and you certainly do not want to pay child support for many many years for a child if you do not know the child is yours.
