Mette, Evans & Woodside was founded to bring together exceptionally talented attorneys, who share a commitment to providing businesses and individuals with the best possible legal representation.

Founding attorney, the late Howell Mette, explained the firm’s approach, “We do our very best to help each client. We take a proactive approach, rather than just responding to a client’s stated issues. We’re prepared to suggest alternate courses, as well as identify ancillary problems.”

We’ve been recognized as the “Best Law Firm” with “Super Lawyers,” but our greatest accomplishment is resolving our clients’ legal matters.
