Trustworthy and hardworking
"I hired Mr. Kave to handle a relatively small probate matter. He was mindful to accomplish the task for a minimal fee. I could not have asked for better. I would gladly recommend him!"

Pros: He tells it like it is
Cons: He tells it like it is
"The problem with posting reviews is that most people unfortunately do not always take the time to post the positive especially when they win. However when we loose we seem to get very vindictive and post away as a means to get back at the lawyer which in most cases is not there fault.Its those same emotions that caused you to loose your case from the start."

Ethical and Diligent Lawyer
Pros: Honest, hard working and smart.
"If hearing the truth about your case from the get go is not important to you than Mr.Kave is not your lawyer. If the sole purpose for hiring a lawyer is to punish your spouse (ex-spouse) than there are plenty of incompetent, greedy divorce/custody lawyers in Orange County who will be glad to take you on a fool's mission of litigation in exchange for all the cash you can muster. Not Howard Kave. Ask any attorney or judge in Orange County and you will be told that you are in excellent hands with Mr. Kave's representation.When some people are unhappy with the results they blame the lawyer rather than looking at the facts of the case. "

"Abrasive, incompetent, detached.
Dealing with him you feel like he is working for the other side.
He is more concerned about getting the case over with instead of actually fighting to get you the best deal.
Fees are far above the service you receive and his collection from his customers is much earlier than any attorney I have used and he becomes very abrasive and demanding.
Would not use again if he was the last attorney on earth."

If I could rate 0 I would!!
"I went to him when my son was about 2 years old seeking custody. In my opinion he was rude and did not at all stand behind me in court. His response to every issue or concern I had with my husband was "well you married the a**hole". In addition to his total lack of concern or compassion for my son he seemed as though answering his phone was more important than listening to my concerns. I would never pass his name on to anyone I cared about. "

Didn't Help Me At All
"I went to Mr. Kave for a divorce consultation. I was prepared and had all of my paper work etc organized. He basically told me I would get next to nothing for spousal support and have to split all of the marital assets. He really didn't spend much time listening to what I had to say about my situation. My visit with him was a waste of time. I found a much better lawyer who not only managed to get me spousal support, I also got to keep the house ( which I paid the down payment on with my inheritance) without having to give my ex anything. "

"Not prepared for child custody case. Won, but he really dragged the case out, out, and out... and gawd did he charge through the nose. "

"Not unlike the last poster, I was planning on using Mr. Kave's service until I realized that he seemed far too busy to pay attention to what I needed. He may be a good attorney, but he needs to avoid the phone and give me his undividided attention if I'm the one sitting in his office paying for his time and expertise. He couldn't the first time I met with him. The second time was no better. There was no third time. Sorry. "

No Personal Attention
"I made an appt. for a fee based consultation on a separation and divorce and was not given any personal attention at all. Mr. Kave kept answering his cell phone and taking calls on his office phone. His desk and business appeared to be a disorganized mess. I was convinced he was making an outright attempt to dissuade me from utilizing his services as no one could be this rude and unprofessional. I do not recommend this attorney."

" I went to Mr. Kave wanting to draw up a will. My main concern was who my son was going to go to if, God forbid, anything happened to me. So, in a nutshell, he dismissed me because I had no assets except for my 401k which already had someone listed as a beneficiary. He even had the nerve to ask me how much money I had in my savings and checking accounts.
He told me he would draw up a will if it made me feel better, but it really wouldn't help me any. After all was said and done, he basically said to me "By the way, my consultation fee is $350.00" I wanted to say "For nothing?" He didn't even ask if I could pay all of it now or if I wanted to do payments.
I left there feeling frustrated, taken for a fool and very very unaccomplished and disappointed. I will never go back to him nor will I EVER recommend him to anyone!!! "

Howard Alan Kave
"Howard Kave is an outstanding attorney. Howard has represented me on numerous matters over the last 15 years. My father, now deceased, was a leading attorney for New York State. Dad often told me how impressed he was with Mr. Kave, as a fellow attorney. Howard is best at getting results without going to court. When he does go to court he seldom loses. His rates and charges are always more than fair.
I highly recommend Howard Kave!"

A bright hardworking attorney
Pros: Smart and hardworking
"Mr. Cave has represented me several times and has always done a top-notch job. He actually listens when you speak. An intelligent, friendly, down to earth man, who does his homework, and works hard for you. I highly recommend him."

He works hard for his clients
"I know his duty is to work in his client's best interests, but he dragged me through a long, needless needless ordeal possibly knowing full-well that his client was dead wrong. I went to court without a lawyer and prevailed, despite his client's insistence in drawing the case out for a very long time (hoping that I would just give up) which I did not. Mr. Kave should have known that his client was wrong, and the judge told in just that. To his credit though, he does work very hard for his clients, and considering how many other lawyers are, I would consider this an asset."

The best in the Business
"Mr. Kave ranks at the top of the list regarding attorney services. He has represented myself and my family on several transactions. A straight sharpshooter and no surprises at the end. Very Intelligent man."

Easy to deal with
"Howard is a fine attorney who has helped me in the past with a few things. He will always lend a helping hand.
I would suggest him to anyone that needs a kind lawyer. "
