Jeffrey Howard

About Me

Jeffrey Howard was born and raised in North Carolina, just down the
highway in Fayetteville, NC.  He was the crazy kid on the bright BMX
bike doing tricks that should have killed him but miraculously failed in
their mission.  He and his wife and child live in the forests of Orange
County.


He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he
received a Bachelor's Degree with a double major in History (focus on
Dark Age England) and Peace, War, and Defense (focus on National
Security, before 9/11 and before it was the cool thing to do).


He then pursued and was awarded the degree of Juris Doctor from North
Carolina Central University School of Law, where he graduated with
Honors. Jeffrey has lived in Orange County since 1993, and is a member
of the 15B (Orange County and Chatham County) Bar, the North Carolina
Bar Association, and is admitted to practice law in North Carolina by
the North Carolina State Bar.  He has been handling almost exclusively Personal Injury claims, Workers’ Compensation claims, and traffic tickets since he was licensed to practice law in 2001, though pharmacy
prescription error claims have become a fair part of his practice as
well.  He is a certified Superior Court Mediator with the North Carolina
Dispute Resolution Commission and a Workers’ Compensation Mediator
certified by the NC Industrial Commission. His office is at the end of
Franklin Street in Chapel Hill, North Carolina but he represents clients
all over the state.


When he’s not fighting for his clients, he’s fighting for fun. 
Jeffrey trains in Gracie Jiu Jitsu as well as Progressive Fighting
Systems and enjoys training and teaching self-defense and occasionally
competing in grappling/submission competitions.


He had a Boxer named Nietzsche until he sadly left this world in
2007, going down in history as the best dog ever.  His current canine
protégés are a Boxer named Albe and a French Bulldog named Prunella. 
They’re pretty alright so far.  We’ll see how they work out.
