My motivation for being an attorney—to make a difference in people’s lives
I am Vincent Howard and I am the managing shareholder of Howard Law, PC. Helping people has always been the driving force of both my professional and personal life. I love connecting people in need with outstanding attorneys like the ones I work with at my law firm.
I served in one of the country’s most trusted professions- the United States Army- as a military police officer prior to attending law school in Southern California. As a military police officer, our motto was to protect and serve. We carried out that mission through our strength and compassion for the people we served and protected. As an attorney, that has remained my mission. I bring that same strength and compassion required as a United States Army military police officer to my law practice. I protect and serve my clients through strong and aggressive advocacy.
My law firm handles individual catastrophic personal injury cases involving spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries, and wrongful death cases. We also represent employees in labor and employment matters. Lastly, we represent people in consumer class actions.
Howard Law brings unique experiences and diverse perspectives to bear on our clients’ cases. That combination has proved quite effective when it comes to representing injury victims. I have devoted my entire life to campaigning and advocating for those in need. The cases we handle cry out for justice. Often, if it weren’t for our efforts and those of attorneys like us, our clients would not have a voice. That is why we here at Howard Law consider it such an incredible honor to stand up for people in a court of law, whether it’s in Southern California or other parts of the country.
