“Hugh Is A “Personal” Personal Injury Lawyer”

Hugh Howerton is the role model for personal injury lawyers. His high ethics, knowledge, dedication and compassion are qualities rarely found in the law field today. I was serious injured in a car accident. Hugh was there every step of the way. His attention to my case made me feel as though I was his only client at the time. I am very thankful he accepted my case. Hugh isn’t just a personal injury lawyer, he is a “personal” personal injury lawyer. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

“Attentive, Helpful & Fast”

Mr. Howerton, Thank you so much for helping my mother and me settle our claim. I really appreciate your prompt responses to me when I had questions and concerns. I have worked directly with other attorneys and have never really had a fast turn around response from anyone as you have given me the attention needed for our case. I will definitely recommend you to any one in our family or friends when legal assistance is needed. We appreciate all of your help.

“Hugh did everything he said plus more!”

I have never been in an accident that required medical attention until this last August so I had no experience with any lawyers! You see all the ads on TV making all kinds of promises and I am sure that gets some people calling them. I went looking online and at all the reviews other people posted to make my decision. Hugh had really good reviews plus was extremely attentive during my consultation so I asked him to represent me based on that. Those reviews were spot on and Hugh did everything he said plus more! If you need help from a lawyer then you owe it to yourself to call him! Thanks Hugh for everything!
