Respected Windsor Family & Divorce Lawyers

How did it come to this?

The challenges of marriage and family can sometimes lead down unexpected paths. Just as no one ever expects to be in a tragic accident, no one expects to find themselves in need of a family lawyer. No one expects to find themselves contemplating divorce, or having to fight for the custody of their children, but unfortunately, it does happen. If and when it happens, it helps to know where to turn.

For over a quarter-century, the team at Howie Johnson Barristers & Solicitors has been compassionately and skillfully guiding husbands and wives through the stress and strain of separation, divorce, child support and decision-making responsibility (custody). With so many years dedicated exclusively to the practice of family law, the firm has extensive experience and expertise in all areas of separation, divorce and related matters.  Jason P. Howie, the firm’s founding partner,  is certified as a Specialist in Family Law by the Law Society of Ontario and his experience and success practicing family law has earned him respect and distinction in the legal communities of Windsor and Essex County. Jason has seen enough to know that each case must be treated differently and that no single solution will work in every situation or negotiation. Jason will customize an approach to meet your specific needs.
