Michael Howard

Executive Director at FIRST CHOICE IN-HOME CARE


Michael Howard was born and raised in the Chicago area before relocating to Washington State in 1989. In 1998, he received his bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Washington and then attended law school at DePaul University in Chicago, where he graduated with honors in 2001.

Prior to joining First Choice In-Home Care in 2018, he worked for over seventeen years as an attorney in Seattle, representing individuals and commercial entities in civil litigation matters, including claims as varied as wrongful death, breach of contract, workplace injuries, employment discrimination/harassment, and insurance bad faith. As a litigator, he arbitrated dozens of cases and conducted multiple jury trials in state and federal courts with consistently favorable outcomes for my clients. Most recently, he tried a property damage subrogation claim resulting in a directed verdict for his client and payment of his client’s attorney’s fees and costs through trial.

Notwithstanding the success he found as an attorney, he always aspired to do something professionally that would allow him to make a real, lasting impact in my community. That opportunity came when First Choice In-Home Care founder Jim Lord offered him the chance to succeed in his role as First Choice’s Executive Director. Although this is a monumental career change, as it turns out, it’s the best decision he has ever made and he has not looked back since.
