Client Testimonials

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

-Jennifer James

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.


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.


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!!!


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.


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.


“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.”


“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.”


“Howard and Justin were so prepared, efficient and tough when it came to representing my daughter in her custody case. Their experience and knowledge with the court system was amazing. The results were great and my daughter has a new sense of confidence.”
