Attorney Mishkind and his Staff Took Exceptional Care of me During my Legal Process

Attorney Mishkind and his staff took exceptional care of me during my legal process. The initial conversation regarding my case was breathtaking. There wasn’t a moment of doubt during the legal process that he wasn’t one of the country’s top 100 lawyers. What a fantastic person. He’s a champion. I received a settlement in record time. I can’t say enough; I highly recommend this law firm.

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.
