What makes us different

Evan and Michael previously represented insurance companies defending cases against injured persons for many years before switching sides to represent the victims of negligence. This experience has served the firm well in handling the representation of clients against insurance companies. Also, when you call Howell & Johnson, LLC, you will deal directly with either Michael, Evan or the firm’s paralegal, Meredith Schroeder. Our firm will make every effort to make your experience with the legal system as positive as we can.
