Does anyone else think this guy is much too expensive & a obnoxious ass?? I hope everyone realizes his parents completely financed his entire law firm from top to bottom when he arrived. I don't think it's prudent to throw your monies after a lawyer so he can get on-the-job-training!

We have a working relationship with Jason and he has ALWAYS been professional and nice. Not sure what happened with you, but we dealt with him hundreds of times and never had an issue.
are you serious

Have you checked around for an other lawyer in Murray? They typically charge anywhere from $100-$200 per hour! And in my experience you get what you pay for.

Looks like some people are jealous of this man. I think its awesome that someone went to law school and became an entrepreneur and opened his firm. His job is not be a nice, happy go-lucky guy, he's a lawyer. I would not want to be represented by a passive pussy that wants to try to be nice, no he has a job to do and if hes being paid by someone, he probably doesn't have time to be nice.

One of my best friends is a lawyer, he the driest, rudest, most obnoxious person alive, but anyone in his hometown can testify that he is the best lawyer around.

No one is questioning his abilities to be professional &/or courteous! What we're questioning is his competence inside the courtroom & pricing of his services.
Jason Howell is no entrepreneur!! His parents bought & paid for his law firm!!! Jason has never "slogged it out" as a Public Defender or in private practice for someone else very long..lol! He's playing attorney with people's monies & lives so he can gain experience all the while charging high $$$$! It's a joke being played on the unsuspecting.

Im not defending the man because I dont know him, but...

He obviously has a law degree and passed the state Bar Exam, so he is qualified to do the job according to the State of Kentucky. Im also willing to bet that the majority of lawyers these days never see anytime as a public defender. He can also charge whatever fees he wants to. No one is forced to use his services if they dont think his fees are affordable. Not to mention the fact that someone should always research an attorneys background before signing into any agreement. I have never had the reason to employ an attorney but I sure as heck would find out about someone before signing a contract.

I'm not sure how many lawyers in private practice you believe 'slogged it out' as a public defender, or how on earth you expect someone to gain experience in private practice without having a.. well.. private practice.

Are you imply that because he doesn't do business out of a cardboard box that somehow he's misleading people?

I have certainly never looked at someone's office and seen it as any representation of their ability to perform their job.

But hey- if you pick your attorney based on the decorations dollar value of their office space- then I suppose you deserve what you get, or got from the sounds of it.

On another note- great for him and his parents, sounds like he got the education and they are giving him the best to start out his new career path. I hope when my children are older if they go after an education like that and my husband and I can write a check to get them started that we will have that chance!

Did you even read the original Topix before you replied? You're completely out-of-touch with what's being debated! Howell only worked briefly in a private practice & never worked as a Public Defender. The point being: his ascent to ownership of his own law firm is rather odd compared to the average lawyer. This is not something he readily admits I can assure you!
Howell has a since of entitlement & a disposition of man who's achieved all of his success on his own!! The truth being he's done nothing to deserve the position he's in other than being lucky enough to be born into it.

So dont friggin use his services. Why are we even debating this? Its simple, if you dont like the way he conducts business, think hes too expensive, or believe his is a momma's boy, or whatever else you can come up with, DONT USE HIS SERVICES.

If you think that every lawyer, or even the majority of them spend time as a public defender, then you are probably mistaken. Its pretty simple math, the ratio of lawyers to public defender jobs isnt even close enough to support the idea that they spend time as one. You say he doesnt deserve his position? He still had to study his way through law school and pass the Kentucky Bar Exam. Where he got his money to open his practice is irrelevant. If his family has the money to help him out starting his own practice, so what. Do you think that if he had taken out a bunch of loans and gone in debt he would have "earned" his position?

The simple fact is, if you dont like him, dont hire him. If you hire him without doing some background work, reference checks, or comparison shopping, then I guess you get what you payed for.
