I have been dealing with Chris Wong, honestly it has been the best experience and communication has been exceptional. I was invited to the police station on a Saturday morning and to have someone to come out on a weekend shows the level of loyalty. Thank you again Chris

My father’s case was particularly complicated and upsetting. His solicitor, Chris Wong, provided much needed support and advice, answered my many questions, and guided us patiently through each step of the whole process to its successful conclusion. I do not hesitate to recommend Howells to anyone needing legal representation.
