"When faced with needing an attorney, Howson Law Office was recommended to me because of their outstanding reputation. Jenifer is very professional, appeared at every court hearing and definitely exceeded her reputation! Jenifer & Roy Howson work as a team. They fought hard and won both motions to suppress evidence. Due to this victory, I did not lose my license. Jenifer is very aggressive and fights hard with strong negotiations with the court and Department of Licensing. Jenifer goes the extra mile to see everything through from start to finish. She cares about her clients and it shows. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone that needs an attorney. THANKS JENIFER!" — Anonymous – 2 Time DUI client 2011
Before contacting Jenifer, I had spoken with several attorneys. They were all willing to take my money for their retainer fee, but they seemed to only want to negotiate a quick plea bargain instead of listening to my side of the story, believing in me, and taking the bull by the horns and challenging the prosecutor to the end – like Jenifer did!! Jenifer always kept me informed, sometimes more than I wanted to know, letting me know what my odds were even when they weren’t in my favor. My case involved numerous hearings, both prior and post acquittal (jury found me not guilty). Jenifer fought my case to the end, she never let me down, and was willing to put up a hard fight even when things were looking pretty dismal. With Jenifer’s persistence and experience, we prevailed. The Howson Law Office is the first number that I would call if ever in need for a great criminal defense attorney. Because of Jenifer, I am able to pursue opportunities now, which could not exist if I didn’t have the representation and outcome that I got as a result of retaining Jenifer." — L.R. 2010
Jenifer Howson is an extremely knowledgeable attorney. She went out of her way to minimize my legal issues. She always promptly returned my phone calls and/or called me to keep me posted on all my legal issues. She also takes payments unlike most attorneys which is awesome, and a big help, especially for those of us who have other fines to pay as well. She has a very powerful presence 'in' and 'out' of the courtroom. I had 2 DUI's, a malicious mischief and a domestic Violence charge all within 6 weeks. Jenfier Howson was able to help relieve me of all charges with the exception of 1 DUI conviction, with only a little bit of step-work of my own. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and would use her again in the future if I ever have legal problems again.— Kandice A. 2010
