Anna Cathleen Howard grew up in San Diego and Los Angeles, and has been service-minded from the time she was a Girl Scout. She obtained her bachelor’s degree at University of Southern California (USC). As a USC student, she served on the Academic Honors Society and mentored at-risk youth in the South Central Los Angeles community. Upon graduating, she worked in the nonprofit field, but she soon realized that she wanted to go beyond fundraising and work directly with those who needed assistance. That realization helped Anna make the decision to pursue work as a lawyer.

Anna attended University of San Diego’s School of Law. While in school, she volunteered for an immigration clinic and civil rights advocacy group, clerked for Federal Judge Michael Anello, edited the International Law Journal and worked with the Public Defender’s office, among other activities.

After graduation, Anna worked at several law firms, focusing on security transactions and assisted reproduction rights, before starting her own firm. As head of her own firm, Anna is able to spend more time getting to know her clients and crafting customized solutions to meet their personal needs. Anna gets great satisfaction from knowing that she’s used her legal expertise to help clients navigate stressful and emotionally challenging life events.

Anna lives and practices law in Carlsbad, California. She spends her free time with her close-knit family, swimming, body surfing, and volunteering.
