Biography

Over more than 20 years, Howard has built a successful legal practice which focuses on professional liability defense, employment litigation and public entity liability defense. A respected trial lawyer, Howard has handled hundreds of professional malpractice claims and has tried almost 100 of them to verdict, a majority of which sided with the defense. In a precedent-setting decision before the Third Circuit, Howard successfully argued that a municipality can exclude houses of worship in order to facilitate economic redevelopment.

In 1978 Howard received his undergraduate degree from American University, with honors. He then received his law degree from Rutgers University in 1981.
