Visalia Family Law and Criminal Defense Lawyer
When you are dealing with a serious legal situation, rely on experience. I am Tara K. Howard, Attorney at Law, and I am a former district attorney with more than 19 years of trial experience. From my law office in Visalia, California, I represent clients in two important legal areas: criminal defense and family law.
Tulare County Divorce Attorney
If you have a problem, whether it is a contested divorce or a criminal charge, you need a lawyer who knows the local courts and the judges in your area. I am an attorney who has in-depth familiarity with the system and the courts in Tulare County, and I will fight for your best interests.
I take a realistic, straightforward approach with my clients, keeping a high level of personal attention and communication at all times. I am thoroughly prepared, ethical and aggressive. My goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for your unique situation.
Former District Attorney With FBI Training
As a former district attorney (DA) and an experienced family law and criminal defense lawyer, I am able to handle even the most complex cases.
Due to my experience as a former DA, I bring specialized FBI training to my criminal law cases — something that other defense lawyers in Tulare County cannot offer.
When settlement is favorable, I will negotiate on your behalf toward the most optimal result. This may include representation during mediation if you are involved in a family law matter. However, if negotiations are not successful, I am always prepared for trial.
I offer free 30-minute consultations to give potential clients the opportunity to speak with me, discuss their legal matters and learn about their options. To schedule a consultation with an experienced Visalia family law and criminal defense attorney, please call 559-827-4699 or contact me online.
