Howland Evangelista Kohlenberg LLP, a dedicated Trusts & Estates boutique law firm, was founded in 2014 by former Edwards Wildman (now Locke Lord) attorneys who shared a vision to focus exclusively on Private Clients' needs. We've harnessed a team of professionals with diverse skill sets and in sufficient number to address our clients' needs promptly, capably and with the personal attention they expect and deserve.

HEK brings decades of collective knowledge, experience and integrity to solving client issues - taking the time to find thoughtful solutions for each and every client.


  • Listening to and fully understanding our clients’ expressed, and sometimes, unexpressed - needs.
  • Taking the necessary time with our clients to explain things from their perspective.
  • Offering proven experience with the sophisticated legal options, and knowing which to use for each client.


Becoming “true” counsel to our clients as well as a critical “point of entry” to the entire legal profession.
