What Real Clients Say About Hugh


five stars

Hugh Howerton is the role model for attorneys. I was serious injured in a car accident. Hugh was there every step of the way, accurately driving the case which led to a very successful outcome. I never felt alone  in this. His attention to my case made me feel as though I was his only client at the time. I called Hugh for a case review based on his years of experience, and also because he is in the Texas top 100 trial lawyers. 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.

We contacted Mr Howerton after reading reviews here. We were nervous and didn’t know if he could help or if we had a case. From the very first phone call we knew we were with the right guy. He answers all his calls. He kept in constant contact by text, E-mail or phone. He walked us through the process step by step. He used his professional expertise to settle our case. Even the opposing attorney told us how good Mr Howerton was at getting us a fair settlement. Can’t thank you enough Mr Howerton for being on our side.
