I hired Lyndsay desperate to get my divorce moving and finalized. I was over 6 months into a divorce battle. Even with my ex dragging his feet and his attorney refusing to respond to any calls, emails or requests with Lyndsays help the divorce was finished in 2 months. Lyndsay is incredibly professional, also very personable. I felt that every concern I had was met and taken care of to the last detail.she was quick to respond to every email and phone call. Shes great!!!

I trust and have trusted my life and my children's life with Lyndsay Howard for 11 years now and she has always came through. I am a Male with full custody of my 11 year old daughter. We were able to win full custody in a long trial when I was only 21 years old. Since then we have updated the court order several times and Lyndsay has been awesome each time. She is a pit bull with lock jaw when you need her to be and she can play nice and negotiate when it's best for the child interest. My daughters case was a child endangerment case so playing nice wasn't an option. However I have a 3 year old son and my relationship with his mother just didn't work but we have to work together for my sons best interests so sitting down and coming to agreements and compromising was the best option for my son and moving forward with his mother. Lyndsay was able to help me negotiate 60/40 joint custody where I have my son 60% of the time. Yeah that's right a man in Minnesota has full custody of his daughter and 60/40 custody of his son. Sounds unheard of in this state doesn't it?! With Lyndsay you are in great hands! My only advice is to be as organized as possible which is you helping yourself. My father and Aunt also used Lyndsay for their divorces as well and they received exactly what they asked for in their negotiations.

Had a long, drawn out divorce that was going nowhere with another attorney so I reached out to Lyndsay to get an opinion on things. Within 5 minutes of talking to her I knew I had to switch. She got things done for me and shot it to me straight. I appreciate what she did for me a lot because I can tend to be hardheaded at times and she wouldn't hesitate to get me focused on what the alternatives could be. I read these same reviews when I was shopping around and there is a reason she is rated so well. I'd give her a 6th star if I could!

I contacted them to set up a consultation to see if they could help me with my divorce . I was then called back the same day and told that they would not even have a consultation with me because there was a conflict. I asked what the conflict was and they said they couldn’t tell me. I asked if it was because I was a stay at home parent with no income and was told that they couldn’t tell me only that there was a conflict. How is there a conflict before we even have a consultation. They will not even take a look at you If you need help but don’t have the big bucks! You would get a zero rating if that was an option.

Lyndsay Howard was very efficient to work with. We were able to get right down to exactly what type of document we needed and get it completed without a lot of expensive back and forth. I was very pleased.

She completely misrepresented me; I am now reviewing the documents.

She was enabled to do so via racists projections, the consequences of which we see in the current political climate.

And she enabled the mother of my child to keep information from me, and keep information from my child about me.

She was my lawyer... though, if you're white, she probably won't do the same to you... so there's that, I guess.

She is attentive, knowledgeable and honest.
She made the whole ordeal of child custody as smooth as she could. She was in it to make sure my son and I were comfortable and happy. She worked for the results and made sure I was satisfied before buckling down anything. She also would address anything that made uncomfortable or was not to the agreement we had made. She fought for us. If you want the best Lyndsay is the lawyer you want!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Heather! She was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was kind and knowledgeable. She was very personable and was easy to connect with. She always listened to my concerns and fought hard for what I wanted. Another thing I loved, is she always kept it real. She always gave me her best advice but would support any decision I made.

I worked with Heather Hamilton at the Howard Family Law firm. She was such an amazing support during my divorce proceedings the last few months. She was very open and honest in her communication on what needs to be done and always kept me updated on any progress.I appreciate the flexibility that she had in helping me despite me not living in MN anymore as I had just moved out of state after the separation. Heather was calm, patient and understanding to my situation.I could not recommend her or the Law firm enough for it. You are in good hands under her.

Lindsay is one of the best attorneys I have ever met with. If you can afford her she would be my first recommendation for a family law attorney. Especially for any man fighting to be with his kids.

Lyndsay fought and she won SOLE PHYSICAL AND LEGAL CUSTODY of my son for me. Lyndsay Howard took my case when several other attorneys represented me and said "There is nothing we can do." She was completely upfront, and brutally honest with me about my case, my options and my chances. She literally saved my son's life. Thank you Lyndsay.

I did not choose to hire Lyndsay because of monetary reasons, however I felt very confident that she was the right person for the job. I felt more confident leaving her office after her free consultation than I did after paying a Craigslist lawyer a $1000 retainer and meeting with them. Very professional, I feel I would have gotten the results I wanted had I been able to afford Lyndsay to represent me. She knows what she is talking about and provides realistic expectations.

No one enjoys paying lawyer fees. No one enjoys getting divorced or fighting for custody. But if you have to do those things, I highly recommend Lyndsay. Executive summary: down-to-earth, very responsive and even proactive, realistic about what you can achieve, strategic about how to do it, careful about billing.

Background: I did not use Lyndsay on my actual divorce. Wish I had. I think it would have wrapped up in half the time instead of the almost two years that it took (international avoidance of service, tedious negotiations...). I discovered Lyndsay the same way you are -- through Google reviews -- when I was needing help with custody issues.

Down-to-earth. Lyndsay is very good at explaining in everyday terms what the law will and will not do, what your options are, etc. You might say, "Hey, I'm a smart guy, I can understand lawyer-speak as well as any lawyer." Yes, you could, if you spent all the time needed to digest the terms of art. That's what I had with my first lawyer. Huge waste of my time. Much better just to have a real conversation and make the lawyer do the translating work.

Very responsive and even proactive. That Lyndsay is responsive no one can deny. She usually answers emails same day -- sometimes within hours or minutes. Just as importantly, when she answers it's not "I have received your message and will think about it and get back to you." More often it's "Here's what our options are and what I think we should do." She is also strikes a good balance in proactiveness. You don't want your lawyer just running the whole show without reviewing things with you. That would run the danger of having them say things you don't want said. For me, Lyndsay was a mind-reader in terms of responding directly to the other lawyer when she knew what I would want to say, but then consulting with me first before responding to more nuanced issues.

Realistic about what you can achieve. There were many times that Lyndsay could have led me down a road of further litigation, but she advised me in each case that it would probably get me nothing and cost a lot of money. I believe she was right and respect this approach. As a non-lawyer, it's very easy for me to be misled about the law, to file a lawsuit and run up all sorts of bills in a dead-end case. It's nice to feel that your lawyer is not trying to do that to you.

Strategic about objectives. You're just going to have to trust me on this one. Too long and too many details to explain.

Careful about billing. You're really at your lawyer's mercy when it comes to billing. Did it take her five minutes to respond to that email, or half an hour? It's a big price difference! As I look through her bills, I've never felt gouged. Things seem to take about as long as I (also a consultant who tracks his hours) would expect them to take.

I like how she was caring and I really felt like she wanted to help me. Easy to talk to and very understanding. She got back to me quickly. Lyndsay fought hard to get me what I wanted. I was very satisfied with her. I would recommend her and would use her again in the future.

Lyndsay was a pleasure to work with. She clearly communicated every step of the process and demystified the whole thing. She was very patient and provided excellent guidance and worked with me toward the desired outcome. It was obvious that she was just as invested in the process as I was and I would recommend her wholeheartedly.

I strongly recommend Lyndsay of you are in need of a knowledgeable, professional, attorney. She was recommended to my by a friend and I too have recommended her to others. Lyndsay took the time to carefully listen and assess my situation. She was able to clearly explain my rights and realistic possible outcomes. The Howard Family Law staff was also friendly and professional when I contacted her office. Additionally, Lyndsay returned phone calls or email in a timely manner. In the event I need additional legal support, I will definitely not hesitate to contact Lyndsay!

Lyndsay Howard was a wonderful attorney for me. She took on my case that was high stress for me and was very clear about expectations. She made me understand the details of my situations and was an advocate for my son and me, and our rights. She also was realistic about likely outcomes. Lyndsay was quick to respond when I contacted her and always addressed my concerns. She had high ethics, in and out of court. She was highly organized and professional. I would strongly recommended her.

I hadn't used an attorney for my divorce, but now that I have worked with Lyndsay, I wish I had known her back then. She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and made things easy to understand. She definitely knows her stuff and was very cognizant of my time and kept fees down by doing so. I would highly suggest that anyone considering a divorce see Lyndsay first!!

Smart, practical, accessible and careful with my feelings and my funds, Lyndsay Howard is an amazing ally in your legal process. She did not waste my time or my money, had good practical advice, while having no tolerance or patience for nonsense. She did all this while being compassionate and available to me in a confusing and emotionally difficult time.

I couldn't recommend her more highly.

I tried another lawyer before choosing Lyndsay and I found myself in a mess with the custody of my son hanging in the balance. In what seemed like an inevitable loss I dropped all the information I had on her desk, hoping at the very least to be represented and at best save some semblance of whatever custody could be salvaged. Lyndsay was a game changer. She got out in front and was aggressive and tireless in her duties. Lyndsay gave me options as we went along, gave me counsel regarding similar types of situations and gave me payment options that worked for me. Her demeanor in court, with the opposing lawyer(s) (yes, they switched mid-case) and the Judge gave me confidence and assurance that my case was in good hands. I dug a deep hole before this case ever got to Lyndsay but now I’m enjoying my time with my son and my restored custody. I would recommend Lyndsay, I will go back to Lyndsay (although I hope I never have to) and I trust Lyndsay, you should too.

Lyndsay was an amazing lawyer, she helped me out tremendously when i was going thru my child support/custody case and fought for what i wanted and what was fair. She was always willing to answer any questions i had no matter what and was always brutally honest with me. She explained everything to me and told me what to expect when we went to court she made an extremley scary time seem not so scary. Without her i dont think i would have had as good of an outcome as i did. I have recommended her several times and will use her in the future if i ever need legal advice.

Lyndsay did a great job leading me through the divorce process, while helping maintain focus on that what was most important to me, my kids. She kept them centric to my dealings with my now ex. Lyndsay offered great advice, and helped me navigate through a painful process. She was fair in her billing, and allowed me to do as much of the work as I was willing/able to. She was also successful in helping me avoid court when possible, as well as be successful in court when I was left with no alternative. She helped to calm me down on more than one occasion, when emotions were over-taking logic. I am glad she was representing me during this part of my life!

I really hope that the "1 star" review would not dissuade you from looking into Lyndsay Howard Family Law. She will do right by you. I love the fact that when I walk into her office she will make me feel like she has no other case files and I am her only concern. Which is why I will pay her travel expense's to drive an hour for court. She is worth every penny. Plus a lunch afterwards. She is a great person and I feel Lyndsay is the best family practice from the Metro to Southern Mn. :O)

Lyndsay Howard is an awesome attorney. She has the approach of a best friend and will defend you like there is no tomorrow. I have had Lyndsay as my lawyer for 6+ years. My case has been long since been on a cease fire, with the excellent communication she provides to the other party, BUT she is willing and able and to go to bat and fight for me, her smile is more of a warning to the other side of "see I have teeth, and not afraid to bite.

Lyndsay has a nice guy approach she is smart and clever. She will make all attempts to resolve outside of the court room. But as a warning DO NOT under estimate her. She will go down fighting. She was originally a replacement for my lawyer when he could not make it. I was shocked to find this seemingly nice lady go at war in the court room for my case. Right then and there my original lawyer was fired and she was hired on the spot.

I would recommend Lyndsay for any issue you have esp for family law. She is excellent in her field of expertise.

I hope this helps, Who ever you choose I wish you the best of Luck, but do not pass up Howard Family Law. At least check her out and see what she has to say regarding your case. I promise you, you will not be disappointed. Be truthful and trust she has your best interests at heart.
