Tomorrow, April 25 is my birthday. You and your team just gave me the best birthday gift ever in my life with such exciting news! I was expecting anywhere from $0-$25,000 on the ruling on attorney fee and cost. It is unbelievable and awesome! Your firm just saved my life!

I am very fortunate to find you from the California Bar Association to represent me and I can't thank you enough for all of the excellent work your team provided me for the past six months. Your firm is [the] most friendly and professional office I have ever visited. It is absolutely true that you are the best family law firm in [the] Inland Empire.

Thank you so much. Your whole team worked on my case and I appreciate every one in your office.

My first impression of Mr. Howington was that he definitely had a presence about him. He was big in stature, very tall and even a little intimidating. I heard his loud authoritative voice before I turned the corner to his office... but then he smiled and greeted me warmly. You could tell by his good humor and the twinkle in his eye that he had a very kind heart., but I have often said "I am glad I'm standing on the same side of the courtroom as him".

I won't say it was easy, because it was far from that. But I will say that Mr. Howington, his lovely wife, Bobbie... and all his wonderful staff got me through the most difficult time of my life. They all treated me as if I was their very own family member who was going through a divorce. Mr. Howington represented me with such fervor, you would've thought I was his very own sister! Heather and Cynthia were always so personable and caring, crossing those t's and dotting those crucial i's.

If you want an extremely knowledgeable attorney, who will tell it to you straight, who will fight for you and care about you through to the end of your case, and who is honest and forthright in laying out your options, you will have spent your money well with this attorney. Mr. Howington was worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY!

Mr. Howington has a passion for the law. As scary as it is to walk through the halls of a courthouse, as soon as I see Mr. Howington, it's like a great pressure lifted off of my heart. He is so calm and collected and very easy to talk to. I believe that Mr. Howington is an exceptional person. He will sit down and speak with you and explain over and over until you completely understand what is going to take place with your matter.

All associates to Mr. Howington are very helpful and exceptionally kind on the phone. When you are making that call to find out information it is so nice to hear a friendly voice on the other end. I have never had a bad experience with any part of this firm. I would recommend Howington and Associates without any doubt.

I consider Joe Howington to not only be my attorney, but also my friend. He has counseled me, represented me, and mentored me through one of the most difficult periods of my life and I am very thankful. His staff is courteous, thoughtful and quick to return inquiries, which eases my mind through very difficult preparations and court proceedings. He joyfully delivers positive news and doesn't sugar-coat the negatives. I appreciate that about him and vouch for his good character and ethics - and his staff reflects those characteristics as well. And most importantly, in the courtroom, Joe is second to none!

Mr. Howington was my lawyer for 4 years and represented me during a difficult divorce case. He is well-mannered, cordial, very knowledgeable with the Family Law and has a good sense of humor. He has an incredible team assisting him which helps, especially with the frustrations one goes through during those traumatic times. I highly recommend Mr. Howington and his team.

I retained Attorney Joseph Howington following sixteen years of litigating an extremely contentious divorce involving child custody issues. Mr. Howington offered excellent advice and wise counsel for my unique situation. Despite his grueling schedule, he always found the time to communicate his thoughts and strategies for my case. When I had any questions pertaining to my case, I found his office staff available to answer my questions, as well as professional, thoughtful, and considerate.

As a law enforcement officer with over 31 years on the force, it has been my experience that some attorneys are quick to litigate all aspects of each case for their financial benefit. Abraham Lincoln wrote, "Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker, the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough." Mr. Howington obviously subscribes to this sentiment as he was able to negotiate a fair settlement for my case, without any litigation.

I would strongly encourage anyone facing a divorce to retain Mr. Howington for fair representation.

Joe Howington represented me in my divorce case, and I am so glad he did! He is incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in Family Law and I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. His office staff is wonderful and always helpful whenever I needed assistance with anything. From my initial consultation through the signing of the Judgment I felt 100% taken care of and am so pleased with the results. If you are looking for an attorney who cares about you as a person, who will fight for you with everything he has, and will be there for you during the entire divorce process, then look no further. I recommend him to everyone I know!

Wow! The professionalism and the attention to detail is second to none, as member of the U.S. Coast Guard, Mr. Howington has been my lighthouse in the darkest of times and my greatest asset in a time of battle and triumph. He has shared my setbacks and my successes on and off the court never forgetting the larger picture and the objectives we've set out to accomplish. Together, he has helped me overcome, adapt and understand a legal system that often seems unforgiving. Nevertheless, Mr. Howington has kept me on track always outlining our next course of action and strategy. Often it is very easy to succumb to emotions and feelings but Mr. Howington has the unique ability to separate the emotional state from the objective at hand. And for this reason, this is what makes Mr. Howington a great Family Law attorney. He has always kept my best interest on the frontlines. Mr. Howington, as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces and a proud father, I Salute You for your unwavering integrity, honor and pursuit of justice... Thank you!

1st Class Petty Office & Father

After four years and three attorneys to assist me with the litigation in finalizing my marriage, I called upon Mr. Joseph W. Howington. At the juncture in which Mr. Howington was hired to represent me in what had become an acrimonious court case, Mr. Howington, immediately begin dedicating his time and energy in pursuing a favorable outcome for me. Through the years, these proceedings not only involved the division of marital assets, but most importantly, a fight to restore my relationship with my daughter. At this point, it was essential that Mr. Howington trusted in me, as he became inundated with information from the previous four years. Mr. Howington accepted this challenge, responding in confidence and with conviction that he will do, within his power, to achieve the ultimate goal - to revitalize a mother/daughter relationship. These proceedings continue, but the light at the end of the tunnel now shines through, ONLY because Mr. Howington did not question or abandon the needs of his client, but instead stood steadfast in achieving a propitious conclusion.

There is no doubt in my mind, that if EVER asked if I know of a family law attorney who could handle a family law matter ranging from a small issue to a greater-than-life matter, my unequivocal response would be, MR. JOSEPH W. HOWINGTON. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Mr. Howington for believing and investing in me.
