Spam and junk-mail filters may delay or prevent delivery of your initial e-mails to Mr. Howell. This occurs (a) until your e-mail address is recognized as a retained client, and (b) because a typical case summary includes many words that trigger spam filters. Please be patient.
Employment and business separations are emotional, and the first call to an attorney is often the first time you “vent.” Mr. Howell tries to hear out and respect all contact from potential clients. However, he has limited time, resources, and practice areas. Initial communications may not be quite as long, or as focused on details you deem important, as you would prefer. Further, Mr. Howell must decline many potential clients to preserve enough time for existing clients. Please do not read these decisions as offensive, unprofessional, or as negative judgments on you or your case.
