Nothing speaks to a lawyer and his office staff like client and peer testimonials. Don’t take it from us: read what our clients, our clients’ family members, people who came to meet with us but didn’t hire us, and fellow lawyers and criminal law professionals have to say about Mike Howard, Dallas criminal lawyer.
"I simply cannot express how grateful, pleased, blessed, and a hundred other superlatives I can't think of right now, that Mike Howard represented me during the most difficult time of my life. I was charged with two serious felonies that jeopardized my life, and really, the lives of my friends and family as well. We all went through this together and Mike was right there along with all of us on what was the most confusing and terrifying journey of my life. He made sure I understood everything about the process - what was happening and what could happen. He was patient, kind, and understanding while I asked him the same questions over and over again just so that I completely understood exactly what was going on. I could write quite a bit more about how much I appreciate Mike and his team for everything they did for me, but I'll just leave it at this - it's a beautiful morning, I'm having a cup of coffee while my dog sits next to my chair, I've read the news, and now I'm writing this review on my computer and it's all because of Mike Howard and his team. I am eternally grateful."
"Recommended to me by a friend. Mike Howard! What can you say! I will be forever indebted to him for taking good care of me. Between his staff and his personal dedication to my case, I was throughly impressed and grateful to have such an outstanding lawyer/person in my corner. His office will do everything possible to work with you financially and emotionally. As worried as I was, he helped me understand the value of the law and magnitude of what could or should be rewarded under the harshest of circumstances that I faced. His vast knowledge coupled with his desire to get you the best outcome cannot be measured. When looking for someone who actually cares about your wellbeing, the choice is a no brainer in my eyes. Obtaining a deferred adjudication in my case was awesome! Thanks Mike!
“My husband and I want to thank Mike and Trish for all of their hard work. They stood 100 percent behind my son, making sure his rights and voice were upheld in court! They not only respected my son as an individual, but were also passionate and caring for him and our family. Whenever we needed their help, their response was immediate and focused. Thanks to this wonderful team, my son is on the right path! Thank you again for all you have accomplished for our family. I would highly recommend Mike Howard’s law firm!”
-Cindy, client’s parent
“Going through an accusation of domestic violence was painful for our family. Hiring an inexperienced attorney for representation was like slamming a sledgehammer on an already broken bone! Mike Howard was the 2nd attorney we hired, and what a difference it made. We felt heard; we saw action; and we had responsiveness to our questions, calls, and concerns. Due to the diligence and expertise of Mike Howard Law Office, we received the “No Bill” at Grand Jury our family was praying for! Our ONLY regret- we should have come to Mike Howard Law office first!”
-Elizabeth, client’s wife
"This man saved my life!! I don't even want to think about what my future would have been like with a felony on my record and thanks to Mr. Howard I don't have to. This man is brilliant and if you're looking for a top notch defense attorney I would recommend Mike Howard. I hope I never need an attorney again but if I do I have Mr. Howard on speed dial. Real talk!! Best decision you will ever make I guarantee you that!!"
“At first we didn’t know what to expect when Mike Howard was appointed to represent my husband in his aggravated robbery case. We’d heard horror stories about court-appointed lawyers and worried whether he’d get a lawyer who would care and who would work his hardest for my husband. When the prosecutor made his first offer of 40 years in prison, we feared the worst. But from the beginning Mike Howard treated both my husband and me with respect: he gave us his time and made sure my husband understood his rights and his options; he and his staff always took our calls and answered all our questions. In the end Mr. Howard got the case reduced and got my husband probation. We are so thankful to Mr. Howard for all his hard work on our behalf.
-Janesha, client’s wife
“I had 1 felony and 2 misdemeanors. I was referred to Mike Howard by a friend who knew a lawyer that knew him. If I were to list off everything he did right I would have to write a book. This man is young, respectable, treated me right while walking that thin line between his client and the law. Specifically he got my felony dropped and 1 of the misdemeanors, and a plea for 9 months probation. If I ever need legal help again there is no question who I am calling.”
“I have to say that Mike is one of the best attorneys I have come in contact with. He spent over two hours explaining the legal process regarding my husbands case. Although I could not afford to hire him, I felt that if I had the resources I would hire him in a heart beat. He is kind, very knowledgeable and his secretary follows up as promised. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t had that FREE initial consultation with me. His advice sure helped me get some peace of mind and much needed sleep. He is awesome, and I felt the need to make it known. It is the least I can do after he spent so much of his time helping me. I am a real person and no one paid me to say this.”
-Luz, potential client’s wife
“Mr. Howard was referred to us and we are glad he was. He is approachable, factual and comforting.”
“We were recommended to Mike and he immediately helped us. He gave us all the details and helped get the best for us. I would highly recommend him because he helped us a great deal. I think things would be way different if we didn’t have a lawyer like Mike Howard.”
“Mr. Howard embodies all of the qualities one looks for in defense counsel, concern for his client, knowledge of the law, and respect of his opponent.”
-Brook Busbee, Criminal Defense Lawyer

-Harley Martin, Criminal Defense Attorney
“Mike is the kind of lawyer I would have represent a family member: he is smart and has a big heart! And if that’s not enough reason to hire him, he is also the kind of lawyer who gets good deals for his clients from the government and judges because he is well-liked and respected!”
Clark Birdsall, Criminal Defense Lawyer

“I cannot endorse my good friend and fellow criminal defense attorney, Mike Howard enough. Mike has been my mentor in the criminal defense arena for some time now, and he is an endless source of knowledge and a man of integrity. Mike works for each client, whether retained by that individual or appointed by the court, like the client is a relative. I have referred several clients to Mike, and they have all come back raving about the personal service and expert advocacy that he provides.”
-Chad West, Criminal Defense and Personal Injury Lawyer
