About me

Anna W. Howard is an associate who handles a variety of civil litigation matters, including False Claims Act cases.


Anna was born in Birmingham, AL but moved with her family to the Atlanta area in 1992, where she has resided ever since. After graduating from a public high school in Roswell, Georgia, Anna attended the University of Georgia where she graduated cum laude with a degree in International Affairs from the School of Public and International Affairs and a minor in Spanish. At Georgia, Anna served in various leadership roles in the Residence Hall Association, was selected to serve on the Academic Affairs Student Advisory Council, and was initiated into the Omicron Delta Kappa and Delta Epsilon Iota Honor Societies.


After graduation, Anna worked for an insurance company for three years before returning to the University of Georgia for her law degree where she graduated magna cum laude. Anna was actively involved in Georgia's nationally recognized moot court team where she was a finalist and best brief winner at the Phillip C. Jessup International Law Southeast Super Regional Competition and tied for 17th best team in the world at the William C. Vis International Law Arbitration Moot. As a result of her academic and moot court successes, Anna was elected to Order of the Coif and Order of the Barristers and was selected to serve as a pupil in the Joseph Henry Lumpkin Inn of Court. During law school, Anna served as Notes Editor for the Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law, research assistant to Professor Peter B. Rutledge, and was a member of the Honor Court's 1L Hearing Panel. Anna also was a recipient of the Wyckliffe "Wyck" A. Knox, Jr. Law Scholarship, the ABA Section of Labor & Employment Law & The Bureau of National Affairs, Inc. Award for Excellence in the Study of Employment Discrimination Law, and the ABA Section of Intellectual Property & The Bureau of National Affairs, Inc. Award for Excellence in the Study of Intellectual Property Law.


Following law school, Anna clerked for the Honorable Richard W. Story of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. Anna and her husband Andrew now live in Virginia Highland with their dog Savannah and are active members of their church and community.
