Howard Haake was created as a way to merge two passions of business law and criminal defense. Geared toward creating the comfort of being represented by a BigLaw law firm while having a close, one-on-one relationship with an attorney that puts your needs first.

Our offices are located in Clayton, Missouri and Wentzville, Missouri. Today, our firm has grown to assist in your business and criminal defense needs as well as family law, estate law, wills, trusts and guardianships.

Why Us – How Are We Different?


I’m sure you’ve seen other law firm websites where the attorneys tell you how they are aggressive with bold tactics. Every attorney should be aggressive and develop bold tactics when representing his or her client. Despite these promises we have seen attorneys take their time when dealing with client matters in a way to "pad" their bills, not focusing on the best interest of the client. We couldn’t see ourselves being that type of firm. This is one of  the reasons Howard Haake was created.


Most attorney's work on an hourly rate. This leaves the client wondering, "how much is this going to cost me" before and after hiring an attorney. Common complaints of getting their attorney on the phone is comparable to "pulling teeth." We have even seen attorneys actually avoid client calls all together. When starting Howard Haake, we sought out to change the way our attorneys handle client matters.


At Howard Haake, our fees we do have hourly rates for certain cases but we strive to bill out our services at a flat rate fee. This means, as a client, you are going to know exactly how much you’re being charged and knowing exactly what you are paying for. We strive to show you a different type of law firm and a different type of lawyer.
