What our clients are saying...


“I am writing this letter to express my gratitude for the exceptional service Kirsten has given my family. Kirsten Howe, Attorney at Law, has been a blessing for our family in numerous ways. In late 2006 we suddenly lost my beloved father. The complicated dealings of settling my parent’s estate combined with managing the small businesses that he owned were daunting and overwhelming. We were referred to Kirsten during this difficult time and could not have asked for a better legal representative. She was emotionally supportive and took the time to educate our family throughout the process of setting up trust accounts, updating wills, gifting of assets, the dissolution of companies and establishing new businesses. Her organizational skills are excellent and she worked quickly and efficiently. Kirsten’s business is executed with the utmost professionalism yet she provides a customer service that feels comfortable and welcoming. Kirsten has become our family attorney and friend and I would again like to thank her for all she has done.”
