Good people, love this place.”

Courtney has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She represented our family during our son’s recent adoption and treated us with the utmost respect. The adoption process can be overwhelming and stressful but Courtney’s prompt responses helped put us at ease. I must make note that Debra, Courtney’s assistant, came to the hospital late one evening after hours to notarize documents for us. Their willingness to go above and beyond does not go unnoticed. This team and office really care about creating families and it was proven to us time and time again over the last few months. We are thankful that we found Courtney and Debra.”

Courtney was very detailed in communicating the steps and process of independent adoption. She responded to our questions promptly. Would highly recommend her for an adoption attorney.”

Courtney is the absolute best! She helped us finalize our adoption, which was not a normal situation. She went above and beyond, and we will be forever grateful for all she did for us. Communication was excellent and we always felt in the loop. You will not find a lawyer, or anyone in general, who will work harder for you while also being a kind and caring person. Thank you, Courtney, for making our family whole.”

“Courtney was awesome with stepparent adoption for us! She answered all of our questions quickly and was very professional. I would highly recommend her and her firm!”

Courtney was amazing handling our adoption!! It was a private adoption so it went pretty quick. Within 5 months of starting we finished today. Her and Debra was so nice, helpful and very responsive. When I first reached out to Courtney she was on vacation and she still immediately emailed me back with details of what to do while she was gone. I couldn’t be more happy with the decision of choosing Courtney to handle my case.”

“Courtney assisted me with a long, difficult, protracted divorce. She was exceptionally helpful, understanding, and a complete professional throughout. I am exceptionally pleased with her leadership and support all through the process and would highly recommend her. She has been A++!”

“Courtney was outstanding! She was very helpful and explained everything during my divorce. I would highly recommend her!”

“I contacted Courtney during my divorce. It was a very hard time for me but honestly, she made it easier with her empathy, compassion, and care. She was always responsive, responsible, and courteous. Courtney is an exemplary lawyer that cares about her client and his well-being and always acts in his best interest. She actually went above and beyond and continues to help me even after the divorce was finalized.”

I cannot recommend Courtney enough! She helped us with an adoption and after meeting many lawyers she stood out from the rest! She was professional, prompt, and delivered on her promises! She was also very enthusiastic and supportive of us during the entire process! We were trying to get the adoption finalized before a certain date and Courtney was able to make that happen! We are forever grateful to Courtney and cannot recommend her enough!”

We have used Courtney for both of our children’s adoptions and have been very impressed both times. The communication is great and she really works to get things done as quickly as possible.”
-5-Star Review by Audra

“Courtney was recommended by a local agency to assist with the adoption of our daughter. We received excellent service from both her and Debra, her assistant. Whenever we had a question about the process of adopting, Courtney was always ready to assist and calm our nerves. These two are the dynamic duo you should be seeking if you need a Family Lawyer. We appreciate everything you have done for us!”
-5-Star Review by Jeromy

“We have had such a fantastic experience working with Courtney and her team! They have easily been the most expedient, information, and generally helpful piece of the adoption process for our family. I would highly recommend their team for fairly priced and family-centered responsiveness for your family law needs!”
-5-Star Review by Chris

“Courtney Howell and her assistant, Debra, did an excellent job of helping my wife and I adopt our grandson. I talked to several attorneys before deciding to go with Courtney. She explained the adoption process and simplified it much more than other attorneys. Throughout the entire process Courtney and Debra did everything we needed and made the entire process trouble-free. I can’t thank them enough and can’t imagine anyone doing a better job.”
-5-Star Review by Gary

“I can’t recommend Courtney enough! She helped us through the adoption process from start to finish including ICPC and a very challenging and unhelpful birth parent lawyer. She advocated for us and reassured us throughout the entire process. She went above and beyond more times than I can count. She even set everything up for us in the sending state since that attorney refused. She did so many things to ensure a successful adoption and met every deadline along the way. She’s extremely responsive via email and just wonderful to work with. I recommend Courtney to every potential adoptive parent I can. If you want someone who advocates for you and gets stuff done quickly and easily – it’s Courtney!”
-5-Star Review by Kay

“Courtney was absolutely amazing. She represented us for our step parent adoption. She was on top of everything from the start. She was kind and caring. I couldn’t of found anyone better to represent us. Plus her fee is extremely reasonable. Highly recommended!”
-5-Star Review by Danielle

“Courtney was great! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a competent, professional, and affordable adoption attorney. While our case was relatively straightforward, the pandemic times made it delayed. Courtney was able to stay on our case to make sure there was a timely submission of our paperwork and for our finalization hearing. She was friendly and responsive with communications and I would love to work with her again!
-5-Star Review by Sandra

“You won’t find a kinder person! Courtney worked with my husband and me while we went through the process of him adopting my daughter. She is very professional and extremely responsive to emails/texts. She contains so much knowledge, and made the adoption go very smoothly. We also had a court date much sooner than we ever expected. If you need someone who truly cares and is there to help you, Courtney is the one!” -5-Star Review by Ashley

“Courtney was great to work with! She knows the process, always answered our questions quickly, and got everything in order for our adoption finalization. We were very impressed and would use her again!!” -5-Star Review by Maggie

Courtney was very responsive and helpful thru what was a bit of frustration that we encountered with my daughter that was adopted from China. Courtney helped us do a readoption that was seamless and completed in a timely matter. At all times responsive to questions I had and would highly recommend her.” -5-Star Review by Dawn

“Courtney is a Godsend. You will not find a nicer or more knowledgable adoption attorney. She was kind and compassionate towards our individual case, and very approachable and friendly. She helped us understand the process thoroughly as we finalized the adoption of our son, and has a wonderful presence in the court room. Her fees were very reasonable. In our opinion she is the most professional adoption attorney in the Louisville area. We will be recommending her within the adoption community for years to come.” -5-Star Review by Sarah

“Courtney was an excellent adoption lawyer. She took care of everything and made working with her stress free. She was very responsive to messages and she really knows her stuff! We would definitely work with her again!” -5-Star Review by Jessica

“I cannot possibly express enough gratitude and thankfulness for Ms. Howell and her level of expertise, professionalism, and ability to deliver on all of the areas she promised she would. After reading all of the previous reviews and speaking with several different attorneys Ms. Howell stood out far above the rest in every area! She delivered more than we discussed and was able to negotiate an agreement that was even better than I had initially requested. She helped a single father maintain joint custody with a more than fair agreement and I will forever recommend her and her firm. She was extremely precise, detail-oriented, prepared, and tenacious in getting me what I needed. I highly recommend her and her firm! Thank you again Courtney I couldn’t be happier today! You all are amazing!” LAKIN H. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“I want to express my most sincere thanks for the most professional representation. I admire Mr. Howell’s composure, work ethic, and most of all, excellent representation. I am incredibly grateful for Mr. Howell’s help and bearing with me through everything! This was hands down the best decision I made when going through my divorce and child custody case. Never an easy thing to do, but they made it simple and were super supportive every step of the way. I would recommend them to anyone looking for help with child custody or divorce. Again, thank you for helping me through this tough time and going above and beyond.” KIARA B. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Courtney was quick to respond to all questions and concerns, she was very honest with me at all times and I listened to her and did what she told me to do. This firm saved me and my children….literally. I was frustrated at times at how slow the court moves but Courtney has been there to offer calming reassurance. If you’re looking for a serious, professional attorney who will fight for you, this is the place. Without them, I don’t think this would have had such a happy ending. I definitely recommend this firm.” LISA C. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Courtney is the Best! I was relocating to Florida with my child, I didn’t know where to begin. Courtney was very informative and helped me work through the process without having to go to court. She is quick to respond and works hard to help families resolve issues and concerns. Highly recommend! A+++++++ Service.” MELISSA L. – FACEBOOK REVIEW

“When I found myself in the unfortunate position of going through a divorce, a trusted friend referred me to Courtney Howell-Kidd. After a generous free consultation, Courtney gently and eloquently walked me through the difficult divorce process. She was always quick to respond to questions and concerns, giving me the sound advice I needed. Courtney said things I needed to hear to help keep me grounded.
Everyone in the office at Howell and Kidd was professional and kind to all who walked through the doors. I highly recommend the services of Howell and Kidd Attorneys.

“I used Howell and Kidd Attorneys at Law for my divorce and subsequent court hearings. Bronson Howell was knowledgeable and down to earth. He answered all of my questions and put my fears at rest before my court appearance. I highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of an attorney in matters of family law.” AMY B. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Courtney worked diligently to complete the arduous process of my divorce despite delays by the opposing party. I liked that she was only an email away anytime I had a question or concern. She maintained professionalism while being pleasant. Her fees are made known on day one so there are no surprises. She came recommended to me through a colleague and I highly recommend her myself” CRYSTIE B. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“I HIGHLY recommend Courtney, she may be a small package but she packs a HUGE punch! Courtney goes above and beyond for her clients. I went into the whole divorce thing completely unsure of what to expect. She was there every step of the way fighting for me and my children to make sure that we would be taken care of once it was said and done. She is quick to respond to emails and never once left me in the dark about the process. Thank you Courtney for being there when I needed you the most!” JESSICA S. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“I met with Courtney Howell-Kidd regarding a custody issue. I am very happy with the service and care I was given by both her and Bronson. Before coming to Courtney I was in the dark on what to do with a custody battle. Courtney not only talked me thru each step-by-step process but gave me valuable information on steps that we could take to prevent an actual custody battle in court. My daughter’s father and I were able to come to an agreement and come into Courtney’s office together and mediate without fighting. I appreciate all the work Courtney put into our case and couldn’t have done this without her. I recommend Howell & Kidd to everyone!” NIKALETTE B. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Courtney is amazing!! Not only was she prompt in responding to me and setting up a consultation she was very easy to talk with. I went in feeling helpless and had high anxiety and after just a few moments with her, I was at ease and knew I wanted her representing me. She actually cares and proved it when she told me she would make some calls because I might not need her services. Sure enough, she was right and notified me the next day. On top of all this, she still kept in contact with me about my situation. I am so thankful to her and glad I know an honest and caring family attorney. Thank you Courtney” S. FRANKLIN – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Courtney is amazing! She listened, advised, advocated, and kept me well-informed throughout the divorce proceedings. She understood the emotion involved and her support was so appreciated. Her confidence and experience put me at ease throughout a very difficult process. I’m thankful for her guidance, encouragement, and commitment to my case!” KATHIE P. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Courtney Howell-Kidd is an excellent lawyer. She listened to my concerns and helped me develop a strategy for dealing with my child support issue. On a personal level, I also feel that she guided me to make some good decisions for the future of my daughter and that type of genuine concern is hard to find these days. I would highly recommend that anyone seeking family law advice contact her.” MERRANDA L. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Courtney Howell-Kidd, J.D. – Wow! What an “AMAZING” attorney! I am a physician and I found Courtney to be very professional and honest, fees were reasonable, she met with me on a weekend at least 3 different times, very prompt with e-mail responses, convenient east end location, and to top it all off, my divorce was resolved quickly! THANKS Courtney, you are THE BEST !!!” JOHN O. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Both Courtney and Bronson are very professional and responsive. They will make you feel like you are their only client. They are very competent, kind, and compassionate. When things do not turn out how you thought they would, it is nice to have someone caring and compassionate in your corner.” STACIE R. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer. Courtney was regularly available via e-mail even at odd hours of the evening and morning. I am now living in the Indianapolis area and Courtney worked with my schedule so we could conveniently meet in Louisville. After 13 years separated/divorced, my ex-wife and I went through mediation for the first time. Courtney was spot on guiding me through the process. Courtney was on time, prepared, and helped negotiate fair resolutions to our differences. I cannot imagine utilizing any other attorney to protect my interests.” JOSH V. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Courtney will go above and beyond to help! Their pricing is fair and they are always accessible to answer questions you may have. Don’t be surprised if you become friends while working through your issue-its that kind of place! Recommend highly” DEBBIE H. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“I was referred to Courtney by a friend, and could not be more grateful! She is extremely professional, yet easy to talk to. From the start, she focused on my situation as unique (though I’m certain it is not;); applying her knowledge of family law with veracity, giving me a clear response as to what to expect going forward. Courtney answers every concern, every email in a timely manner. I feel much more comfortable with my ongoing situation knowing I am represented by Courtney and her firm, which means the world to me. As an added bonus, she is very expedient with the services she provides so as to keep costs down. I will recommend Howell & Kidd Attorneys to anyone!” ANGELICA B. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“When it comes to any type of family law concerns, Courtney is who you want to have in your corner! I went in for my consultation a complete mess and shed many tears, by the time I left I felt as if my troubles had all been washed away. She made me feel heard, she made me feel supported and she gave me a comfort that is hard to find when speaking with attorneys! At my mediation, she fought for me, kept me assured, and didn’t leave until I WAS comfortable (even missing her dinner reservation!). She communicates quickly and is always very friendly. I cannot recommend or praise her highly enough! If you are needing any kind of legal advice/support-contact her. You will not be sorry!” KRISTINA F. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Courtney did an exceptional job handling my custody case. She was straightforward, yet very caring. But, even more important, she’s extremely responsive when needed (even on weekends) and answered any question that I had. Courtney went above and beyond to understand my needs, and assured me throughout the process that I would be okay – and I was! When in action, she executed with strength and diligence. I will definitely use her services in the future. Thank you Courtney!

“This brother-sister duo have been there for me, my family, and many friends since I met them in 2011. They’ve always been responsive every time I’ve needed them even if last minute and have been the best I’ve seen and heard. No one wants to go against them in court! They to this day represent me and always go after what’s best for their client’s interests and I’ll always be forever grateful!! Thank you for all you’ve done and continue to do for me and my family!!!! I’ll continue to refer anyone I find could use their services and give them the praise they so deserve!” KATHERINE H. – GOOGLE REVIEW

Don’t Let her Sweet innocent look and gentle temperament Fool you. She’s A Beast!
Courtney knows the law, and she really knows “Family Law”! I went into my divorce very scared and blind. Thinking that a male had no chance in the court system! SHE PROVED ME WRONG! As a male, I was totally amazed how she handled everything. She fixed it that I would come out of the relationship WAY better off than I imagined. She works for you! She knows people! The Opposing Attorney probably will not have a chance. I strongly recommend Courtney! I thank God for putting her in my path!

“Courtney is a phenomenal lawyer! She really shows compassion towards her clients. After I was denied to see my children I came across her name and went to speak with her. Since all that happened she has went above and beyond to help me get my kids back. She is super easy to talk to as well! I had consulted a few lawyers before her and she was the only one who I could tell was actually listening to me instead of seeing me as dollar signs. One of my favorite things about her is she is easy to get a hold of, this is a major problem I had before. Highly recommended!”  BRITT B. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Courtney drew up an agreement for me. I was in a rush and she saw me very shortly after a quick phone consultation. She was compassionate and professional. She told me what my options were and gave good advice. Courtney was always responsive and helpful when I had questions or concerns. I will continue to trust her with my business, and I will wholeheartedly recommend her to others.” SARAH N. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“Courtney did my divorce for me, and was awesome! She is very professional and made everything go great. She was so quick to answer my many emails I sent her with any questions I may have had. She also came in after office hours to meet me a couple times due to my work schedule. She is quick to get things done and great at her job! I would recommend  her to anyone needing a good attorney, and one that doesn’t just focus on taking your money like some may do.” SHANNAH W. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“I met with Courtney Howell-Kidd regarding a custody issue.  She was professional and gave me extremely helpful (and money-saving) information.  From the moment I arrived at her office, she was friendly and made me feel comfortable.  The most important thing to me is that she is honest and trustworthy.  I would not hesitate to recommend her as an attorney.”  GAIL B. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“I used them over 5 yrs ago. Courtney handled my divorce and was amazing. I still call them with questions about paperwork and I always get a same-day response. My most recent was for a child support order. I had it less than 2 hrs after I sent her an email. “BRANDON D. – GOOGLE REVIEW

“I came to Mr. Howell via my mother June 2013, on a life-changing immigration case that displaced my life for a year and a half. Mr. Howell learned I came to the USA October 23th 1976 and was NEVER documented as a child, until March of 2013. I was fired from my new job, leaving my newly college graduate child taking care of me. I’m devastated but I’m calm, I guess because Mr. Howell was a calming force that entered my life and told me everything will be okay. Long story Short, I’m now a Permanent Resident, a college student, Rehired by the same hospital that fired me, just celebrated 1 year, and I went home my birth country London England just this past February. I’m so blessed and I know Mr. Howell is partly responsible for that. God Blessed me with a great attorney who changed my life forever!! 37 years of NOT knowing, thank you for believing in me!! I love you and if I can do anything I’ll be there always!!” MARIA

“I was referred to Howell and Kidd Attorneys by a friend. I was under emotional distress of preparing to deal with family court and didn’t know where to begin. I have worked mostly with Courtney, who quickly responded to my questions, gave me expert legal advice, and most importantly helped provide me with support, confidence, and courage to go through the legal matters at hand. She is incredibly fair with her prices and has always treated me with respect. I highly recommend Howell and Kidd to anyone that is looking for an attorney, as this has been the best referral anyone has given to me.” MARY – GOOGLE REVIEW

“I was already working with a divorce attorney who wouldn’t answer my questions or return my phone calls when a friend recommended Courtney. Everything my friend raved about was true- Courtney listened, answered all of my questions, thoroughly, explained my options and made me feel as comfortable as possible during the extremely stressful divorce process. It has been almost 2 years since my divorce was final and Courtney is still there for me answering any questions or concerns. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family.” ALISON – YELLOW PAGES REVIEW

“I have had the pleasure of not only doing work for Howell & Kidd on a business level but I am also a client. Their office is very easygoing and has a laid back atmosphere. Courtney Howell has a way of making a person feel very relaxed and even though I had a lot of questions and felt my situation was complicated, she managed to talk me down and I left my first visit feeling like everything was going to work out. It also has been great that she is willing to meet with me on the weekends.” STEVE – GOOGLE REVIEW

“I really enjoyed the care and service I was given. Before coming to Howell and Kidd I was given the run around by a previous lawyer and my divorce seemed to drag along and a very unproductive and costly pace. Once I retained Howell and Kidd to represent me in my divorce things moved at a very productive pace! The staff was not only fast but very efficient and prices were fair and there was progress the very next day. It was a huge weight lifted knowing that my concerns were heard and addressed.
There is nothing that I would change about my experience with this firm except for the fact that I wish I would have called them sooner. I highly recommend them.” SAUNDRA. N – SITE SURVEY SUBMISSION

“I like the fact that after contacting Courtney she was always just an email away. She is very easy to talk to and she is very understanding. Although she was an attorney I paid, she was much more than that to me. She gave me the feeling she tremendously cared about me , my son and the entire family situation. Courtney does not run a practice that is all about money, she will quote you a figure and go to work on that figure for you. I’ve heard of other law offices charge for each phone call, email, letter, any thing and you have a surprise bill of upwards of 16K. There are no surprises when you deal with Courtney, you know upfront what you owe and she goes to work for you. From my experience I can highly recommend Courtney from what she has done for me. Courtney is GREAT and only an email away” SITE SURVEY SUBMISSION

“I was referred to Courtney and family by a coworker who had recently used this office for her divorce. As a newly single mother, I was terrified to meet with a lawyer, appear in court, and work through legal and custody issues with my ex husband. She eased my mind from day one and has been an advocate for me since the day I met her. She explained all aspects of family court in detail so that I understood everything that was happening around me. Even after the divorce was final, I have had to return to her quite a few times and she always remembers me immediately. Her rates are always fair, and she understands the struggle of trying to afford a lawyer while fighting child support issues. Four years later, I still refer to her for legal advice and ongoing issues, and I feel like I am reaching out to a friend rather than a lawyer. I have met Bronson Howell in court as well and was very pleased with his support as well. I have recommended this office to 3 different friends, and no one has been disappointed.” SITE SURVEY SUBMISSION

“I recently hired Howell & Kidd after interviewing other law offices. From the moment I walked in and spoke with Courtney, I knew choosing Howell & Kidd was the right decision for me. Courtney explained the entire process, asked pertinent and pointed questions while showing genuine concern for me. She kept me informed on all developments and answered all my questions promptly. The entire experience was as quick and stress-free as possible, under the circumstances. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome as well as the service I receive. I will certainly use Howell & Kidd for any future representation I may need.” SITE SURVEY SUBMISSION

“Courtney was incredibly personable and very understanding of not just the law but also of how emotional and complicated divorce can be. She did an excellent job and stood by me through the entire process. Would highly recommend her to others.”
