Jeremy represented me and a co-guardian in a guardianship case for my brother. It was a long (4 year) case and had several twists and turns including educating the guardians on our responsibilities, the involvement of multiple families, sale of real estate and finding a good financial adviser. At every step of the way Jeremy provided sound, professional and reasonable advice that demonstrated his great experience and knowledge. He listened to our questions and provided quick responses and was always willing to talk things through. His calm and steady approach was very appreciated. The staff in his office shared his professional yet personal approach. I would highly recommend Jeremy and the Law Offices of Howe & Garside.
Kristy went above and beyond – Client Testimonial
“Kristy went above and beyond to help me with my military QDRO. She is very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions.”
We Guided the Family Through Redemption of the Tax Sale, Probated the Mother’s Estate and Leased the Property.
Case: A client was referred to our office by an attorney. Her case was regarding a parcel of real estate owned by five brothers and sisters who were heirs to their mother’s estate. The property was about to be lost at a tax sale, there was no organization to their “family partnership” and little family communication at all. Results: We guided the family through a redemption of the tax sale, probated their mother’s estate, leased the property to a church group with an option to purchase the property which eventually led to a sale of the building and we ran the family partnership during this long process. Testimonial: After concluding the transaction and distributing the net proceeds to the brothers and sisters our client wrote the following: “Our hearts thank you” said the card to which she added: For your sincere, honest, heartfelt help with our family problems. Without your help we could not have worked things out. Then she added a blessing to Jeremy, to the office and to his family.”

“You were able to answer my questions and I am confident that I have covered all of my bases. How do people manage if their attorney doesn’t bother to admit they don’t do enough military and civil service work to know all the nuances?”
Quote from an Attorney regarding a Military Qualifying Court Order to divide a pension of a military member in reserves:
“Your office is prompt as always; I have already heard from Kristy in regard to the two QDROs. You were a big help to me on this same case last spring, and it is very appropriate that your office receive a thank you.”
