Client Testimonials

Here are some things our clients have to say about us.


Very knowledgeable

-Matt DeKoster


I had some questions about adoption and Howard answered them without hesitation or making me feel uncomfortable or rushed. I believe He truly cares for his clients and would recommend this office if you want an attorney who actually listens to your needs and would help you.

-Debra Lawson


Very satisfied with the outcome and reduced points on my license.

-Bogdan N


Excellent Law Office to work with. They are friendly, knowledgeable and answer questions in full so you can understand what is going on. I would highly recommend reaching out for any legal needs you have.

- Eric Cross


-Joe Patterson


-Jill Ellerbroek


Our teenage relative needed an attorney like Howard to manage two offenses he had gotten into in two counties within a couple weeks. Howard was extremely helpful and prepared, with strong experience, knowledge and relationships within Ottawa County. He advised our relative on what to say and not to say, what his options were, and the best possible outcome, which he achieved for us. He also helped us manage the MIP issues in another Michigan county to minimize the potential for either judge to double whammy our relative. Thanks to Howard and his team, our relative learned his lesson and received the best possible results from his two incidences. We would and have recommended Howard to friends and neighbors looking for a competent, experienced, fair lawyer to represent their needs. Thank you Howard!

I contacted Van Den Heuvel Law regarding a child custody issue. Howard listened to our problem and provided excellent advice. I would not hesitate to contact Van Den Heuvel Law for any future matters.

Very helpful.

-Josiah O'Brien


I had a brief consultation with Howard. While I did not retain his services, and thus cannot state his qualifications as a trial lawyer, I can state that he is a thorough, up front and honest individual. We discussed my situation and came to the conclusion that there was a very unlikely chance that the outcome would be in my favor and that retaining his services would simply be throwing good money after bad. Don’t get me wrong, he was willing to take on the case, but also stated that it might not be the most effective use of my funds.

He’s realistic and straightforward, and I would most certainly consider him for future legal services.

-Client


Howard and Justin were excellent. They had answers for all my questions. Very easy to talk to and very understanding. Their office was very prompt on making and rescheduling my consultation. Overall they did an excellent job!!!

-Joshua


I felt they were very friendly, gave great advice, and very knowledgeable of my concerns, issues and repairs I needed to do with the job I had. It was a pleasure to work with them and I know where to go in my future for great legal counsel.

-Shelley


I was charged with an OWI and it looked like I was going to lose my license for a long time, but then Van Den Heuvel Law Firm stepped in and saved my life. With their professional work and integrity, I was able to have my charge reduced from an OWI to a small traffic violation.

The Van Den Heuvel’s were always there the every step of the way, and they’re the ones who I owe all the credit to. They stepped up and went above and beyond the call of lawyers. If I would ever need an attorney again, they’re gonna be the ones I call.

-Bruce


“In 2012 I came to Van Den Huevel law office looking for help with child custody and divorce. Howard Van Den Huevel took me in as a client and helped me in the beginning with much of my divorce and custody. In 2015 Justin Van Den Heuvel took over and I became his client as he helped me with my on going custody battles. He has been very helpful and treated me like family when I had very little money.  I was able to make payment arrangement with the Van Den Huevel law office to pay so I could acquire their services. I was very pleased with that in fact when no other office would take my case without a huge lump sum. I would recommend Justin Van Den Huevel to anyone.  Justin is very smart and a knowledgeable person of the law and was able to help me get my kids fast. When I have or have had a problem, he is right there to give me advice and guide me down the right path. I have been very happy and pleased with Justin’s and Howard’s services. They are great attorney and even better people. I will always keep them on retainer, as I am very pleased with their work and how they have handled my case. I couldn’t have asked for better attorneys or friends, especially when I needed them the most. I give Justin my highest recommendation.”

-Monty


“Amazing Attorneys I would look no further, I am with them all the way.  From the original consult to the time in office to the time in court. They continued to exceed my expectations. When I first came to them I was in a whirlwind of chaos almost immediately was put at peace by the consult alone. Were the peace continued throughout the process. I’m finding it hard to put into words how great from start to finish my business with them has been. I will highly recommend them to everyone I meet. they are an A+++ If your reading this and you need an Attorney take my word for it THESE ARE YOUR GUYS. They set a standard for me that I don’t believe I could find anywhere else I’m finally at peace.”

Professional team got my ticket reduced to a non point ticket without even going to the court hearing. Which is great as a CDL driver.

-Terry Stapler


Very helpful in creating my personal will, would recommend to anyone needing law advice.

-Brian Marshall


During my initial consultation Howard answered all my questions and offered helpful pointers. I did not require his services at that time but, if I ever do, he’s an attorney I will be working with.

-Client


I hired the Van Den Heuvel law firm to represent. Me in a theft case, the lawyers Justin & Howard were attentive, able to articulate the situation Both with the evidence and storyline, were easy to get in touch with and responded quickly, I would use them again and recommend others to do the same.

-Mike abort


Howard and his associates represented us in a child custody case. He represented us professionally and aggressively. Howard takes the time to get to know his clients and his knowledge of custody laws and the court system were a huge advantage for us. Well worth the reasonable rates he charges. We could not be more pleased with his services. Thank you, Howard.

-John S


Howard had a very reasonable rate and he was a quality lawyer. He dedicated a lot of time to my case. He was more aggressive than my past attorney. He answered my questions promptly. I would have anyone in need of any legal help visit Howard. He will work beyond what you expect at a rate you will be surprised by. He really cares.

-Chris Biegun


I had the divorce from hell. My husband took all of my stuff and locked me out of the house when I was at work. Then the judge would not let me back in to get my stuff or see my children. Howard hammered those SOB’s and I even got joint legal and physical of our children.

Howard was a good friend though all of this and an aggressive fighter for me. I don’t know what I would have done without him.

-Elizabeth Baines


I needed an LLC for my lawn and landscaping business. Went in and talked to Howard, and he took care of the rest. I am no legal scholar and I just wanted to get the legal stuff right. Can’t say that I agree with BJM, Howard was good to me and I would recommend him to any of my friends.

-Client


I felt that Howard Van Den Heuvel really cared about me and my case. When I first met him, he started asking me all about myself and my family. He was more than willing to help me with everything! I’m so glad that I actually followed up with the recommendation from a relative. He is such a good, kind, hardworking man. I would recommend him to anybody!
