Biography

With nearly 25 years of service in government, Mr. Howard is the only person in Washington to have served as a senior strategic advisor to two Speakers of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate, and as a key member of the White House staff to both President Bushes. This gives him the unique ability to advise clients from the first hand perspective of not just the House, Senate or White House alone, but all three combined.

Prior to joining Wexler & Walker, Mr. Howard served as in the White House as Deputy Assistant to President George W. Bush. He worked in the Office of Legislative Affairs where he coordinated the efforts of senior White House officials, the Cabinet Departments and agencies to secure congressional passage of President Bush’s top legislative priorities. Earlier he served in the White House under President George H.W. Bush from 1989 to 1992, also in the Legislative Affairs office, where he had similar responsibilities.

Mr. Howard also has extensive experience having worked at the highest levels of the U.S. Congress, having served as senior counsel and advisor to Republican leaders of the House and Senate, including Speakers Dennis Hastert and Newt Gingrich as well as Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott. Mr. Howard’s experience has earned him recognition as an inside leader in Washington. National Journal names him one of the “Top 50 Bush White House staff members,” while Capitol Hill’s leading newspaper, Roll Call, regularly acknowledged Howard among the “Top 50 Congressional staff members.”
