about us

Innocent people get accused, charged, even convicted all the time. Hundreds of wrongful convictions have proven that you can't just hope that the truth will set you or your loved one free. To have a fair chance, you need a criminal defense lawyer willing to fight for you, someone who knows the law and the system, someone who will listen and investigate.  

With 30+ years of combined legal experience, the Law Office of Mike Howard has learned that great outcomes come from focusing on each individual client as a human being, not a defendant. We have a track record of success - not guilty verdicts at trial, dismissals, and favorable plea agreements. 

In the past 5 years alone, we’ve helped hundreds of our clients avoid jail or prison and gotten 65 cases dismissed!

Many lawyers don’t freely share information with people looking for a lawyer, focusing instead on a hard sell and empty promises about what they can or will do for you. That is not who we are. When you come to us we want to make sure you fully understand your situation and your legal options. We have put together a series of informational videos on our YouTube channel that answer common questions about specific types of cases, your legal rights, and what to expect when you or someone you care about face a criminal charge.
