Biography

A member of the firm’s Litigation Group, Howard has represented both self-insured and insured entities in medically-related claims, as well as representing injured parties in medical malpractice and other personal injury lawsuits. His current focus is on the broad range of claims brought against nursing homes, as well as other personal injury matters, civil rights, municipal law and alternative dispute resolution. Over the course of his almost 40-year career, he has distinguished himself in the courtroom and is recognized not only for his skills as an advocate, but also for his high ethical standards. In addition, Howard previously worked at a plaintiff's personal injury firm where he represented injured parties in medical malpractice and other personal injury claims.

With that combination of skills, a trial lawyer representing both plaintiffs and defendants, Howard has offered his services as an arbitrator and mediator in the civil litigation field for more than 20 years. He is often chosen by his peers as a mediator in all areas involving claims for personal injuries, including product liability cases, medical malpractice suits, slip and falls or automobile accidents.
