Military wife and mother of two, divorce case, Middletown, RI: “If you want commitment you want Jeremy Howe and associates. Kristy was with me every step of the way through my divorce.”
Highly Recommend Jeremy
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
“Kristy went above and beyond to help me with my military QDRO. She is very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions.”
– Client Testimonial
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.”

Child Custody Client
Mother of a now 13 year old. Dad wanted child to relocate to Colorado with him. Judge denied the Dad’s motion so the child stayed in RI with mom, Middletown, RI. “Jeremy and Kristy’s integrity is what separates them from their counterparts. Kristy was my attorney during years of child custody issues. She has the patience to listen to you and the knowledge to provide guidance in ‘what’s in the child’s best interest’. During the trial, she was prepared and performed gracefully in the courtroom. Every time I called or visited the office, you can feel that the staff genuinely cared about you. This office exudes professionalism. They are the reason I believe the court system truly does work for ‘what is in the best interest of the child’.”
