What Our Clients Are Saying

I Am Forever Grateful and Appreciative For Mr. Mishkind!

My family hired Mr. Mishkind over seven years ago after another law firm dropped our case. From the moment we hired him, we felt confident and secure in knowing that he would provide us with fair,compassionate and knowledgeable representation. Even after winning our case seven years ago and all of the accomplishments that Mr. Mishkind has acquired over the years I can still call him and ask for legal advice. I am forever grateful and appreciative for Mr. Mishkind coming into our lives so many years ago and continuing to provide me with sound, caring and trustworthy advice.

I Would Highly Recommend Mr. Mishkind To Anyone!

Mr. Mishkind and his firm diligently and vigorously represented my family and I following my father’s death resulting from an incidence of medical malpractice. Not only did Mr. Mishkind provide sound legal advice leading to a satisfactory legal and financial outcome but he also demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and courtesy to my family and I throughout the duration of our case. Without question, I would highly recommend Mr. Mishkind to anyone requiring top notch legal representation related to medical malpractice.

I Have The Highest Respect For Him!

Howard has built a reputation in the courtroom as a result just seeing his name leads to good things often times keeping you out of the courtroom. During my difficult time he treated me professionally but also like a friend. I have the highest respect for him.
