"Definition Of An Excellent Attorney"

My definition of an excellent attorney? Hugh Howerton. He is professional, responsive, communicative, ethical and get results. I had a tough personal injury case and it was apparent he was in it for the long haul. He was very impressive in court... from jury selection through closing arguments. He exceeded my expectations and I received the maximum settlement possible.

How Will Hugh Handle My Personal Injury Case?


What separates Hugh from many Houston personal injury lawyers is the personal attention you will receive.  Hugh prepares each case like it will go to trial. This aggresive strategy puts the most pressure on the insurance company to offer you a fair settlement. While Hugh settles a vast majority of his cases, he has a proven record of winning large verdicts at trial. Preparation and experience is what it takes to win a serious and complex personal injury case.

tell us what happened


Compassion, Understanding and Professionalism

In May 2009 I was in a car accident that was caused by a young women running a red light. The very next morning when I awoke I could not move the upper half of my body. I did not know what to do. I contacted a personal injury attorney, Hugh Howerton, and that was the best decision I made.

Mr. Howerton was very professional and was able to begin helping me with that first phone call. He was immediately on top of my case taking down all of the information and my statement and was able to refer me what type of doctor I should go see instead of wasting my time at some place that would not be able to help.

He guided me through the entire process with compassion, understanding and complete professionalism. He has years of experience in and out of the court room should your case go to trial as mine did. His experience paid off in the end and the jury’s verdict was very favorable for me.

I would recommend Hugh Howerton to anyone who needs a personal injury attorney for any reason.
