“Your service is very good. I have not had any problems yet that Howells has not dealt with. All of the staff from the switchboard to solicitors are kind and speak to me as a person.”

Criminal Client, September 2019

Howells Solicitors offers expertise and support. Chris Wong, one of its most experienced solicitors, is extremely knowledgeable and is prepared to help both clients and people who just seek advice. He was generous with his time and offered tremendous help with clarifying possible outcomes of a difficult case. Even though it was not possible to transfer the case to him in the end, he offered help and advice free of charge and showed incredible humanity that gave us faith in the justice system. This is a person who really cares for justice. I would recommend him unreservedly.
