Many of Howard's cases at the FDEP were against Fortune 500 companies, hazardous waste generators, and local governments. 

Prior to FDEP, Howard worked for the U.S. Senate, Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship where he developed relationships with U.S. Senators and their staff. During law school, he clerked in the U.S. Department of Justice, Environmental Enforcement Section, where he wrote the first draft of a complaint the U.S. filed against BP Products North America, Inc.
