Howard has been a union side lawyer since 1979.  His clients refer to him as a Pitbull with a sense of humor.  Howard has been named two years in a row as a New England “Super Lawyer” first published in the November 2009 Boston Magazine and appearing again in the November 2010 edition.  Howard has handled hundreds of arbitrations and negotiations and is known for his use of cutting edge technology in representing unions and individuals.  Howard routinely appears in state and federal court handling all aspects of labor law litigation.  Howard encourages his clients to focus on organizing memberships and conducts labor law and stewards’ training in an engaging and substantive manner.    Howard is one of the senior faculty at the Labor Guild of Boston, where he has taught for over thirty years.  He is also a self-admitted Macintosh fanatic and is often asked to speak to unions and attorneys about the use of advanced technologies in the practice of law.  Howard enters his fourth year this Fall as the lawyer coach for the amazing Wayland High School Mock Trial Team.  Howard is also one of the founders of American Jews For A Just Peace, a national organization
focusing on efforts to work for a just peace in Palestine.


A much younger Howard is pictured  here in Superior Court during the 1980 Boston City strike.



Howard served as the founding member of the American Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Technology Committee and has traveled throughout the United States speaking to lawyers groups and labor unions on using technology in the practice of labor law.  In 2002, Howard was a featured speaker at the Annual Council meeting of the ABA Labor and Employment Section in Dublin, Ireland.


Howard graduated from Hampshire College in 1975 with a B.A in Labor History and Legal Studies. In 1979,  he earned his J.D. from Antioch School of Law in Washington D.C. where he also worked for the labor firm Yablonski, Both & Edelman, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the National Labor Relations Board.  Howard worked for a union side firm in Boston before establishing his own practice in 1987.  In 2001, he joined with long-time friend and law partner, Sheilah McCarthy to form Lenow & McCarthy.
