MacQueen & Gottlieb announced the hiring of Thomas W. Howard as a paralegal. Howard comes to M&G from the Phoenix firm Bonnett Fairbourn Friedman & Balint, PC where he worked in the same capacity for the past three years. Prior to returning to the Valley, he was an attorney with Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, LLP in New York.
Howard is a graduate of Pepperdine University School of Law and holds his Bachelors’ Degree in Asian Languages (Mandarin Chinese) from Arizona State University. He remains a member of the New York State Bar Association.
According to founding partner Benjamin Gottlieb, Howard’s experience as a practicing attorney brings a level of expertise to the firm’s paralegal corps that sets it apart from most other firms.
Having a paralegal who has practiced law for eight years is a unique benefit to our firm,” Gottlieb said. “Thomas recently assisted our firm in a 6-day jury trial in which our clients prevailed. Handling a jury trial is a lot of hard work, but having Thomas assist throughout the trial made the process go a lot smoother. We look forward to Thomas’ continued contributions to the firm.”
