The Law Office Of DeCaro & Howell
Innovative Legal Solutions. A Client-First Environment.
We founded our firm with a simple but important goal: Provide our clients with innovative, effective legal strategies while maintaining a focus on making the experience of working with a lawyer as rewarding as possible. As Albert Einstein said, “You cannot solve a problem with the same mindset that created the problem.”
Our attorneys, Thomas DeCaro and Marla Howell, know that when it comes to pressing legal issues involving you, your family and/or your business, you cannot afford anything less than experienced counsel committed to results. At the same time, you deserve to receive a level of service that reflects the investment you are making in legal help. That is why at our firm:
- You will meet directly with one of our partners throughout the duration of your case, never being passed off to a less-experienced associate. When you have only routine questions, our friendly and experienced staff is also here for you.
- You will have the option to meet with us directly at your home or business instead of at our offices based on your preference. In some cases — especially when review of copious financial documents is involved — it will be easier to let us come to you.
- You will be treated both with professionalism and in a friendly manner, acknowledging that sometimes working with a lawyer can be an intimidating experience. We aim to take apprehension out of the equation beginning with our very first meeting.
