Howard Was Everything That Was Promised To Me

Howard Mishkind was referred to me through a good friend of mine who is also a professional in the legal field. “He is the best attorney that I know” my friend said to me! I called Howard and explained my situation and his response was “I believe you have a strong case and I would be happy to represent you!” As a very impatient individual that I am … Howard continued to keep me informed of any progress or updates made in the case, and never left a doubt in my mind regarding my case. In the end Howard was able to negotiate and settle the case without having have stepped foot in a court room! Howard was everything that was promised to me and I would highly recommend Mr. Mishkind to anyone needing a strong attorney for representation.

Mr. Mishkind Is A Good Attorney And A Fine Man!

Mr. Mishkind helped us when my brother was in a devastating motorcycle accident. Even though he was unable to get a large settlement for us, he worked diligently to help us get as much compensation as possible. He was always kind and caring and was in touch every step of the way so that we knew what was going on. He always returned our phone calls and emails immediately. We feel that he is a good attorney and a fine man.

Thanks For All You Did For Me!

In 2014 I suffered a severe burn during a back laminectomy surgery and I had to have 6 months of plastic surgery. I was in a lot of pain for a long time. I called most of the lawyers in the area and when they learned it happened at a hospital, not one of them would help me. I found Mishkind Kulwicki Law on the Internet and called. Howard was extremely nice and very helpful. Howard was able to get a settlement from the hospital for me in very short time! I am happy that I found him on the web and called him. If you want someone who knows the laws and cares about you as a person/client, then do as I did and pick up the phone and call Howard Mishkind at Mishkind Kulwicki Law you will not be sorry. Thanks for all you did for me!
