What Do Clients Say About Hugh

“Phenomenal Lawyer”

Hugh Howerton is a phenomenal personal injury lawyer. During our first conversation, he stated that he would deal with the legal aspects of my personal injury case and that my job was to get better. Hugh did exactly that! He responded instantly to any questions or concerns that I had. He was relentless in pursuing a positive outcome to my case. His integrity, professionalism and knowledge of the law are unsurpassed. I have complete faith and trust in his ability and recommend Hugh Howerton without any reservation.

Colleen Caulkett

“Professional and Fast”

After being involved in an accident I spoke to a friend about my concerns and she recommended I call Mr. Howerton. When I initially spoke with him to discuss what my options were, he took the time to explain how the claim process works as well as the laws concerning injury claims. If I ever had any questions I dealt with him directly, not an office clerk. He was always very courteous and professional. Mr. Howerton handled filing all the paperwork for my medical/injury claim directly with the insurance company and I had my settlement within 3 months of our initial meeting.

“Hugh Changed The Way I Feel About Lawyers”

I contacted Hugh Howerton after several months of frustrating interaction with an insurance carrier. After an initial call to Hugh, he immediately took over management of the issue and my frustration simply ended. Hugh always did exactly what he said he would and was always on schedule. I can’t recommend Hugh enough. He is dilligent, straight shooter that resolves personal injury issues justly. He has changed the way I feel about proper legal representation forever. I recommend him highly.
