"Sometimes in life you just get lucky and find good people to do business with"

Like anyone dealing with accident claims, it is a new process and you are nervous about who to pick as your attorney.  I was not familiar with the process, did not know what to expect, and what I needed to do to help the attorney.  I am glad I found Hugh Howerton to represent me in my case.  Hugh did spend time with me explaining the process and what to expect.  The single most important thing that stood out in my mind, as a customer to Hugh, was the fact he was timely in his communication and responses.  I did not have to make numerous requests for an update.  Hugh did help me win my case and settle as expected.  Please bear in mind this is no overnight process and may take some months to fulfill, but rest assured, Hugh is by your side during the whole process.  When it involves money, most people are cautious and reserved as I was in my case, and after review of all figures, Hugh was on target.  Hugh is also a man of high moral character, and when he states he will do something, rest assured it will get done.  Sometimes in life you just get lucky and find good people to do business with and Hugh is one of those few.  I will highly recommend Hugh to any person having to deal with a personal injury case.”
