"Let me first say, I know that if Mr. Howie had not accepted my case, I would not have gotten the results for my case that he did! I wanted to plead guilty but Mr. Howie told me no because he knew what was best. He even told me not to ask to plead guilty again and boy he was right! I hired Mitchell J. Howie, the best Huntsville Criminal Defense attorney after I was searching on the Internet for the best attorney in Huntsville. In my research, I found that like me he was veteran and had been a military defense lawyer. After hiring him, I learned that he is one of the Top Lawyers in Alabama and One of the Best Attorneys in America. Mr. Howie was willing to work with me since I was a veteran with a brain injury even though I had limited income. He showed that he truly cares about his brothers in the military. He came through big time and got all the charges against me dismissed and I didn't even have to pay court costs which was tremendously helpful to me and my wife. If you want the best attorney in Alabama, hire Mitchell J. Howie today!!! He will help you and he cares about your case!"

Brian Williams, Retired Disabled Veteran

"Mitchell J. Howie is the best military defense lawyer! I was having very little luck on the internet finding an attorney that knew the military justice system. Huntsville Military Defense Attorney Mitchell J. Howie far exceeded my expectations. His professional assistance during my Article 15 hearing was highly influential and very much appreciated as he helped save my career in the Army! I would recommend him as a Huntsville Military Defense attorney to any Soldier facing any administrative action, Article 15 or Court Martial."

SSG D. Harper, Military Member

“I contacted Huntsville Criminal Defense Lawyer Mitchell J. Howie because I knew he was a recipient of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers Award in 2014 and he was highly recommended as one of the best criminal lawyers in Huntsville.  I had never been in trouble before but after hiring Huntsville criminal defense lawyer Mitchell J. Howie, I knew I was in good hands.  He promptly returned my phone calls and e mails and was able to get all charges against me dropped within 2 weeks of hiring the best criminal defense firm.  If you are in trouble with a  misdemeanor or a felony I highly recommend Mitchell J. Howie because he is clearly the best criminal defense lawyer in Huntsville!”

Jonathan Sanford, Huntsville, AL

“Mitchell is a highly skilled trial attorney! As a senior trial counsel in the United States Air Force I have tried over 100 cases and worked with countless military and civilian trial attorneys and Mitchell is absolutely one of the most gifted litigators. He is very effective for his client's position."

Roberto Ramírez, Senior Trial Counsel


"Mitchell Howie provided me with top notch legal representation as a skilled and prominent criminal defense attorney in Huntsville, Alabama. As a former military lawyer, Mitchell intimately understands military law. Although the charges against me were false, as a military member, I was potentially facing a court martial for the false allegations. With Mitchell as my dedicated advocate and zealous Huntsville trial lawyer, I did not have to defend myself at a court martial or even defend against an Article 15 under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Mitchell knew the potential criminal and administrative actions that I was facing. He understood the potential damage to my military career from any administrative reprimand or UCMJ action and helped achieve the best possible outcome without any stain on my official military record. He ensured justice was served and that I could continue serving in the United States Military, he really cared about the outcome of my case! I know I had the best Huntsville trial attorney to represent me in this matter. I recommend Mitchell Howie to any other military member who is in need of a good Huntsville military defense attorney." Don Hunter, Military Member, Huntsville, Alabama

"Mitchell J. Howie has advised me and my construction company since it's inception as General Counsel to my business. As my business attorney he has drafted Residential Construction contracts. Recently, he assisted in a debt collection matter for my company. Due to his intensive negotiations over a 6 month period and his assistance in properly filing a Mechanic's Lien in court, I received the full amount owed which totaled over $20,000 dollars. I highly recommend Mitchell as general counsel and a business attorney."

Nicholas Lankford, President of Lankford Custom Homes

"Mitchell Howie is a skilled and prominent Huntsville criminal defense attorney, because of his dedication to my case, his aggressive litigation strategy, and understanding of the law, he persuaded the city attorney's office to dismiss all of the false charges brought against me. My case wasn't a simple matter to deal with and it also had a bearing on my employment. Mitchell truly expressed his integrity and commitment to ensure justice was done and showed that he personally cared for my welfare. I recommend his work as a Huntsville defense lawyer to everyone."

Teresa Smith, Huntsville Alabama


"As a screenwriter, I recently signed on to have Mitchell as my literary agent and entertainment attorney, and so far I couldn't be happier. As soon as I signed with him, he kicked it into gear and I was blown away by his work ethic, diligence, and efficiency. He's already opening doors for me that will lead to a promising career as a professional screenwriter. I highly recommend Mitchell as an agent and entertainment attorney to anyone who's either in or wants to be in the entertainment business."

Mr. Josh Rochkind, President of Tre Side Kennels

"Mitchell's dedication to the law is outstanding. I have worked with Mitchell as a prosecutor and opposed him as a defense counsel in the Air Force. As a prosecutor he brought skill, knowledge, and gut instinct to the table. When I opposed him as a defense counsel, I knew I had my work cut out for me. I have tried over 30 cases in the Air Force and worked against many military and civilian trial attorneys. Mitchell is absolutely one of the most effective litigators I have ever faced. In court, I would want Mitchell on my side giving the closing argument!"

Damon Scott, Former Area Defense Counsel

"I have known Mitchell since he was a law student in 2003. I have watched him do excellent work as a legislative intern and as Chief of Staff at the Texas State Capitol. I have also had the pleasure of working with him directly on political campaigns and at the same law firm. In all realms he is a devoted professional who has an admirable work ethic and is extremely dedicated to his clients!"

Jermaine Thomas, Attorney at Law, Houston


"I was a jury member on a military court martial where Capt Howie was the prosecutor. He was a great asset to the Air Force legal system.

Gregory Jackson, Senior Trial Counsel


"Mitchell is a highly regarded and remarkable trial attorney! I have had the pleasure of sitting as a voting member on two of his military hearings where he skillfully represented the government's interest. He vastly outshines the military defense attorneys he faces in court. Mitchell presents his client's case in an extremely PERSUASIVE manner. Out of all the courts and hearings I have been a voting member, hands down, Mitchell is the best military attorney and trial advocate I have seen in the courtroom! I would hire him as a civilian defense attorney in a civil or criminal matter should the need ever arise without hesitation."

William G. Smith, Jury Member

Through his zealous representation of my acquaintance and Mitchell Howie's admirable advocacy skills, he successfully persuaded the district attorney to drop the charges COMPLETELY! I would trust him to defend myself and anyone in my family should the need ever arise. Based on his diligent and effective representation as a Huntsville criminal defense attorney I would most definitely hire him as a Huntsville business attorney and for other civil law matters."

"Mitchell is a spectacular advocate! I was a voting board member in one of his hearings. He did the singularly best job out of all the JAG prosecutors and military defense attorneys I have ever seen.
