If you are looking for a lawyer who is trustworthy, knowledgeable, understanding, passionate, honest, and much more. Howard j Wise is "The One"! He help me and my fiance. Thanks to him we still have a clean record! I can't see myself working with any other attorney. He is the best! Believe me he can HELP you out!
Howard Wise is simply the best criminal defense/DUI defense attorney around. As a former prosecutor he knows the opposition and knows how to get the best results for all his clients. His dedication and tenacity are second to none and he gets results, period!
I chose to have Howard represent me for three different cases and was extremely pleased with his services. He prepared me for every case, talked me through each step, told what I had to do to get the best possible outcome and never lied to me about my chances of winning or losing a case. Further, he never made me lie or do something that was uncomfortable with, which is quite refreshing. I believe Howard genuinely cared about the outcomes of each case and how it would effect me as a person. Again, something quite refreshing that is not automatic in all lawyers. For my last case, he helped me earn my license back and luckily I have not need his services recently. I would highly recommend him.
Howard is a wonderful attorney. He is very diligent, knowledgeable, and honest. My friends and I have used Howard for many years and have received outstanding results. I have referred him to many friends and will continue to do so. Grade A+++++
I recently had a legal matter and was represented by Mr. Wise. Mr. Wise is an attorney of unparalleled distinction. There was a mistake on some of the paperwork brought before the court. I didn't notice the mistake, but Mr. Wise picked it out immediately. I spoke with two other attorney's and pointed this out to them in the interview. Both told me it was of little consequence and said it was not worth pursuing. Mr. Wise investigated the case law and used it to my benefit.Something I'd like to point out. While sitting waiting for my case to be heard, I was able to observe other attorneys try their case's before the court. None had the competence and skill I observed in Mr. Wise. Of course it's not everything, but you immediately observe that Mr. Wise has the courts respect. Because he has studied the case and he knows the law. Yes there are many attorneys that will charge you less. But you are essentially paying for someone to stand next to you and take whatever the court decides to give you. If you feel you're truly in the right and you want to win, you need a man of Mr. Wise's character, skill and demeanor.I'd be happy to speak with anyone regarding Mr. Wise.
I went to six attorneys and they all said the evidence against me was strong that I was going to lose my case I went to howard and he said he don't like to lose and if worst comes to worst he going to look for the best solution for me when we went to court he fought hard for me and won and the best thing about howard is he treats you like family I recommend him to everyone
Dear XXXXXX,I thought you would want to know that Howard did an exceptional job yesterday, meeting early with the prosecutor, getting the case moved from adult court to juvenile and eventually having the case dismissed outright. We know another co-defendant that was not so fortunate. Howard’s expertise was clear and paid huge dividends. We’re obviously very pleased with the outcome. Thank you very much for your recommendation and connecting us to the right person. Thank You,
Dear Howard,I can’t thank you enough for all your assistance. Please let me know if you ever need anything in xxxxxx. I will be running for councilman in about a year and stand a good chance of winning. Now without this skeleton in my closet my odds are even better. Just remember, you always have a friend in xxxxxx. If you ever plan on visiting the area just contact me first for it would be a pleasure to meet you. If there is anything else I need to do to process the expungement just let me know. Sincerely
Dear Howard,The purpose of this letter is first to assure you that I am deeply grateful that you were able to work out an agreement with the State’s Attorney to secure a lesser charge of reckless driving which will allow me to continue driving with a baaid device installed in my vehicle. Second, I wish to assure you that I will have the device installed well before the court date of 9 March and that the last thing that I would want to do is jeopardize the arrangement. Finally, I wish to reiterate to you that I have the utmost respect for you as an attorney and for all the efforts you have made on my behalf. I remain, Yours truly,
Thanks for being a dedicated atty and for keeping your words, that means a lot to me. W/o a doubt I would recommend you, you’re the best in the business, you’re about the people.
P.S. You helped my son get a second chance in life.
