When it comes to practicing law, attorney Vincent Howard cannot imagine himself working in any other profession.
In his practice, Howard focuses on individual cases and mass torts involving personal injury and consumer protection matters. His experience in these areas stems from his time at the venerated plaintiffs’ law firm Lopez, Hodes, Restaino, Milman & Skikos, where he handled high-profile mass tort litigation and pharmaceutical injury cases against such behemoth companies as Wal-mart, Merck & Co. and Halliburton Company.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, Howard protected the public as a military police officer in the United States Army, serving honorably during America’s first major engagement with Iraq—Operation Desert Storm.
During his time in the military, Howard received several awards, including an Overseas Medal, a National Defense Ribbon, and honors for marksmanship and good conduct.
In addition to handling cases that call out for justice, Howard supports a variety of community causes and also provides leadership to organizations that help ensure access to the legal system, such as the Orange Country Trial Lawyers Association, American Association for Justice, Consumer Attorneys of California, and Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles.
In 2012 and 2013, the Consumer Attorneys of California recognized Howard’s service to the organization by honoring him with its Presidential Award of Merit.
