Robert D. "Robb" Howell is one of the founding partners of Howell Law Firm, P.C.. He handles catastrophic and high-stakes injury cases, medical malpractice, pharmaceutical lawsuits and business litigation. From his offices in Moultrie, Thomasville, and Albany, Georgia, he represents clients throughout the state and the southeast. He also maintains an Atlanta office and as serves as Of-Counsel to the firm of Conley Griggs Partin, LLP.

Due to his dedicated representation and trial skills, Mr. Howell has obtained many seven-figure and eight-figure recoveries on behalf of his clients. Since opening in February, 2006, Howell Law Firm has recovered well over $100,000,000 for clients who were injured or harmed by the negligence of others. Robb has been particularly successful in securing large recoveries for his clients in small, rural and traditionally-conservative venues. For example, in May, 2014, Mr. Howell was lead counsel in a medical malpractice trial in Lowndes County Superior Court which resulted in a record-setting verdict of $1,811,377.09 for his client. This was the highest personal injury jury verdict in the history of Lowndes County, Georgia at the time. Mr. Howell's verdict in this trial was featured as one of the top verdicts in Georgia in 2014 by the Daily Report on July 31, 2015.

In January, 2017, Mr. Howell was lead counsel in another record-setting trial verdict in Lowndes County, Georgia. In that case, Mr. Howell secured a $10 million dollar verdict on behalf of his client who suffered a brain injury from a fall at South Georgia Medical Center. This verdict was reported as the largest ever for a plaintiff in this venue and far surpassed the previous record verdict (also Mr. Howell's) from 2014.

His successes have earned him an AV rating,* and he has been selected by his peers as a Super Lawyer/Rising Star in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 and as a Super Lawyer ever year from 2016 to 2023. Mr. Howell was also honored as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer by the American Trial Lawyers Association for the years 2010-2012 and received recognition by that organization as one of the Top 40 Trial Lawyers in the State of Georgia under the age of 40. Mr. Howell was recognized on August 31, 2012 as The Best Attorney In Moultrie Georgia by the Moultrie Observer.
