I want to say a special thank you to Tommy Ray for the help with a homeless vet. The donation of the tv meant so much to this vet he could not believe that someone he never met would help. This vet is a Vietnam Veteran and had nothing. This is the kind of people that work at Howell and Thornhill thank you. We now have this vet with shelter .

My experience with Howell & Thornhill was beyond our expectations, Spencer and Roselia were always there when we had questions and kept us informed of anything new with the case.We can’t thank both of them enough for the services they provided. There’s honestly no better place to go.

What a great experience we had with this firm. Spencer and his team went above and beyond my expectations. Check them out if you need some legal help. Trust me when I say that these insurance company’s are get hard to deal with. You are definitely gonna need to bring your “A” game. So bring Howell and Thornhill P.A.
If you are injured by a careless driver do not even consider going it alone. PIP rules and insurance companies are  NOT USER FRIENDLY! Spencer Pastorin and Howell & Thornhill rescued me from the sticky web that no-fault has become. Recovering from a bicycle vs truck crash is certainly not easy but good personal injury lawyers can prevent a whole lot of frustration and help you get the compensation you deserve.
