Frequently Asked Questions

Call the office, complete the contact us form, or email an attorney and that attorney will get back to you promptly.

Each case is different, but we try to assess the issues in our first conversation to set up clear expectations before any payment would become due.

For phone consultations, we are usually available that day or the following day. For in person meetings, it depends on what type of case and the office location requested.

Initial phone consult is free at the Law Offices of Howe & Garside, LTD.

Where married people work out the terms of their divorce together at the Law Offices of Howe & Garside, instead of a Judge making the decision for them.
