      "I'm giving them 5 stars because they work from a place of integrity and extreme diligence"

      Makupson and Howard's lawyer, Kraig Kibble, represented me for the last 6 months in a very complex and heart wrenching family law case regarding child and spousal support modification. I'm giving them 5 stars because they work from a place of integrity and extreme diligence- Kraig's style is soft, yet assertive-calm, yet strong- aggressive, yet fair- persistent yet non intrusive-I truly enjoyed working with him through the most difficult of times for me personally. I felt secure knowing that I had such a dignified and intelligent lawyer, on my side,representing me. Without Kraig, and the firm's advisory support, I would not have resolved this case in a manner that is beneficial and acceptable to both myself and my ex wife. Thanks to Kraig and everyone else at Makupson and Howard!

      "Thanks to the whole team for helping"

      I probably had one of the most difficult cases. Going through a divorce with no kids, no assets, should have been cut and dry. Was I wrong. Being the respondent in the case is hard when you trying to get a divorce and other party does not want to sign. The biggest turn around in my case is when Kristen had the petitioner sign the dissolution paper for the current case. Open a new case change me from respondent to petitioner. This got the ball rolling. After that I was divorced in 6 months. Thanks to the whole team for helping.

      "It was an absolute pleasure to work with Kristen Howard and her team."

      It was an absolute pleasure to work with Kristen Howard and her team. I hired Kristen after my last attorney had poor communication skills, lacked initiative and had internal staffing issues that felt like my case was not given the attention it needed when hard deadlines were approaching. Once Kristen and her team took over it was completely a different experience. I should of hired her from the beginning and I am so grateful I found her. Kristen kept me up to date on all communication from opposing counsel and made key suggestions that left me completely at ease. While the entire case was stressfull knew Kristen and her team were truly looking out for my best interest and my daughter's. The cost part was always a concern on my end, and I could tell Kristen was working efficiently and diligently on her end to keep my costs down. I was so pleased with Kristen and her team, that I rehired them for a change of orders knowing they could easily and efficiently take this on. If ever I need to hire another family law attorney I know I do not need to look anywhere else, but with Kristen.

      "They supported and guided me through the whole process"

      My divorce was horrible. They supported and guided me through the whole process. I'm glad it's over and I chose them as my representation.

      "I highly recommend Kristen for any family law necessities."

      I've dealt with my fair share of shady attorneys and Kristen is far from it. She helped me through a rough child custody case and was not only able to protect my child but also my own interests in the case. Kristen and her staff are incredibly knowledgeable and have always done their best in responding to any questions or concerns promptly. I highly recommend Kristen for any family law necessities.

      "I highly recommend the Law Offices of Makupson & Howard."

      I can't say enough good things about Kristen and her team. I was referred to her by a friend who had gotten great results for her divorce to a narcissist, and who won her custody case. I was quite reassured after working with Kristen to discover she is a solid lawyer with proven experience and expertise in family law. I had started my divorce case with another lawyer, and when I wasn't getting good results, I went in search of a new lawyer. I was concerned about making a switch and having to start over, but Kristen and her team easily picked up my case and ran with it, always making me feel like a priority. They had so much empathy and integrity throughout my entire divorce process. They were diligent in responding to my questions and concerns and tried to keep me reassured throughout the process. Divorce is stressful as is, but when divorcing a narcissist, it can feel nearly impossible with no end in sight. Kristen has a lot of experience in understanding how to deal with this personality type and manage difficult divorce cases with poise and professionalism. She helped me obtain what seemed unobtainable at the time - a settlement and custody resolution. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Makupson & Howard.

      "I highly recommend Ms. Howard."

      Years ago, when I saw what my good friend went through with her custody battle, I also watched her attorney, Ms. Kristen Howard, hard at work representing my dear friend in court. Back then, I could see just how brilliant Kristen was, and I was extremely impressed by her expertise, her work ethic, and her professionalism. My friend won full custody, in no small part to the wonderful attorney she retained. Cut to the present, and my husband found himself in need of a family law attorney. I did not hesitate to contact Ms. Howard at Makupson and Howard. Let me just say that when navigating the treacherous waters of the legal system, the BEST REPRESENTATION is an invaluable investment. My many thanks to Ms. Howard on behalf of my husband, and to quote his words after his final court hearing, "Today, we got justice..." I highly recommend Ms. Howard and her colleagues at the Law Offices of Makupson and Howard, to represent anyone who should find themselves in need of an excellent attorney.

      "I highly recommend this firm to anybody looking for a divorce attorney."

      I want to thank Carolyn, Kristen & all the staff of Makupson & Howard, who did an excellent job during a very difficult and emotional time. Carolyn was recommended by a friend and co-workers who were very satisfied with their services. She became my lawyer after months of being in the hand of another attorney who did not fight for my right. Carolyn is tremendously talented family law attorney and well experienced. A special thanks to Kristen, who treated me fairly every step of the way. Kristen is an experienced, knowledgeable lawyer who won't give up, and will fight for your right. She was very responsive to me about any of my urgent matters. Kristen is very aggressive inside the court, and I felt that she cared for me as a friend, and not just a client. She went above and beyond looking out for the best interest of myself and my son. Kristen always made herself available to discuss and answer all my questions or address my concerns. She is very quick in responding to all my questions. Thank you for all your help and consideration. I am extremely happy and satisfied for all the services you've given me. I highly recommend this firm to anybody looking for a divorce attorney.

      "Listen to her, she knows what she is doing and will give you the best plan moving forward!"

      I owe Kristen more than she will ever know! After having 6 consultations with my different attorneys, each one of them claimed I would have difficulty fighting for custody of my daughter. Kristen was the only attorney who said that she fights for fathers. At that moment, I knew I would retain her services. The results of my case exceeded what I was initially expecting, Kristen went above and beyond throughout each part of it. In all her correspondence with the opposing counsel she specifically used myself and my daughters' name, not merely "my client" or "child". She was intent on making it known that I was more than a client and my daughter was more than child. You will be hard-pressed to find legal counsel that does such a thing. Kristen was also very prompt when it came back to responding to emails or phone calls. She always made time for me and I did not feel that I was hold at any time. She will always get back to you in a timely manner. You never feel like she has other priorities other than dealing with your specific case! It is also important to note that Kristen will not sugar-coat anything with you. She will give realistic expectations of what can, and mostly likely, will happen. You will always get truth and honesty in the same room with her, and that gives me the upmost confidence in her. Listen to her, she knows what she is doing and will give you the best plan moving forward! I would not have the relationship I have with my daughter today without Kristen. That, to me, is invaluable. Kristen with her legal wisdom, planning, and honest conversations with me, made it all possible to be where I am today. Finally, Kristen's great strength is compassion. This did not feel like I was just another client, but she understood how much I loved my daughter wanted to be a part of her life.

      "I thought he would be steamrolled in court, but he was calm, collected, and confident."

      This review is in regards to Kraig Kibble: After battling for a number of years before choosing to go with Kraig for my child custody/support case, I was worn out, stressed, tired, anxiety ridden, etc. I know absolutely nothing about the law and my rights. I was tired of going to "self-help" classes to fill out my paperwork and not fully understanding what I was doing. I decided to go with Kraig because I needed help. My case was a mess. At first I was nervous; Kraig has a quiet confidence about him. My ex's lawyer was loud and obnoxious and talked a big game in court and to be honest, it was very intimidating. After bringing Kraig into the picture, I was worried. I thought he would be steamrolled in court, but he was calm, collected, and confident. He is very straight forward and made me feel very reassured in his abilities. I continue to utilize Kraig for any matters that come up because I know he will keep mine and my daughters best interest in mind. It wasn't about "winning" my court case, but ensuring that we achieved the best possible outcome. HIGHLY recommend for anyone who wants an attorney they can trust.

      "I am so happy with Kraig and the whole team at Makupson and Howard for they are great representation in this arduous and stressful thing that is family law."

      I would like to highly recommend Kraig Kibble as a Family Law attorney. Without going into too much detail, I had a pretty rough experience with my case before going to him and I'm telling you, I must have met with like 5 other attorneys to consult about my options before I chose to go with Kraig. And he was the first one I felt actually listened to me at the consult and did not make me feel like my worth was wrapped up in how much of a retainer I could come up with. He validated me as I discussed my concerns about past matters and needs going into the new court date. He was open to listening but also very professional about helping me to understand how I could help out too and how to best deal with the other party in the matter. At the actual hearing, I must commend his work ethic. I arrived and he was already there and clearly preparing and reviewing the court documents. I never doubted that he was ready to represent me. I bring this up because I have had this fear in the past with other lawyers and actually felt I had to prep them and remind them of things before the hearing because they actually admitted they didn't read items I had sent them that were very important. Not so with Kraig and once our case was called, he was so very professional and knew his stuff and seemed to care that my child got the best result in his best interest. And we did. I am so happy with Kraig and the whole team at Makupson and Howard for they are great representation in this arduous and stressful thing that is family law. It's never easy but it is more comfortable when you know someone qualified has your back. I would highly recommend Kraig over and over again and I will to anyone I know who might have need in the future.

      "Having her as an attorney allowed my stress level to drop down tremendously!"

      Kristen and her team are amazing! I needed her assistance to respond and address my stressful child custody matter. We discussed my options, and she informed me of the probabilities of what could happen, depending on my actions. Having her as an attorney allowed my stress level to drop down tremendously! She navigated me through this intimidating process so that my child's father and I could create a settlement that prevents either party from returning to court unnecessarily. She was efficient, considerate, and prompt! Lord forbid, but if/when I have to address this matter again, I would contact her law firm for assistance and guidance.

      "At our court hearing Kristen conducted herself with such confidence and poise, and ultimately helped secure a favorable arrangement for our family."

      I interviewed a few lawyers while deciding who I felt would be the best fit for me, my wife and our son Brendan. The minute my wife and I walked in to meet with Kristen, we knew we had found our attorney. Everyone was so friendly and professional. Randy was an absolute pleasure to converse with while we waited to see Kristen as well. At our court hearing Kristen conducted herself with such confidence and poise, and ultimately helped secure a favorable arrangement for our family. I couldn't possibly recommend Kristen and her firm any higher. Thank you so much for all your help!

      "Makupson & Howard feels like a family firm (as it is), but the attorneys and their staff work to make their clients feel like family, too."

      Kristen Howard at Makupson & Howard handled my divorce over the 10 months. While it was a tiny case in terms of numbers, the attorneys at Makupson & Howard always treated it like a top priority. They worked with me to balance my best interests, the likely outcomes of the case, and the best course of action to help me get what I wanted without breaking the bank financially in legal costs. But more than that, Makupson & Howard feels like a family firm (as it is), but the attorneys and their staff work to make their clients feel like family, too. Having an attorney who is competent and skillful during your divorce is a godsend, but having one who you also look forward to meeting with because you know how much they care about you and your case? That's a rare thing. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

      "She was able to get me what I needed from the divorce."

      My husband of 27 years suddenly wanted a divorce and not only left me, but left the state. Carolyn was compassionate to my situation and gentle with me when I first met with her. I immediately knew she was who I wanted to get me through the divorce. She is professional, knowledgeable and thorough. She is not a "killer" lawyer and I was very appreciative of that. She was able to get me what I needed from the divorce. I highly recommend her! And her staff. All of them are wonderful and professional!

      "Thanks to Kristen and staff"

      I was frazzled, stressed out and looking for a way to reduce or completely eliminate Spousal Support payments after I retired. Kristen and her team came highly recommended. Their suggestions and strategies did not disappoint. I felt valued, heard, supported and respected as we navigated the court process with significant challenges from the other side.
      Thanks to Kristen and staff, I am now enjoying retirement without the expense of Spousal Support.
