Anne Marie is a support lawyer that takes all of these into account to achieve the best possible results for her clients.
Anne Marie Howells has always had a strong interest in and understanding of the law. After high school she worked in a mill (weaving factory) as an inspector. In 1990, 100 mill employees were laid off. She applied for the JTPA (Job Training Placement Act) which allowed her to apply for re-education. She used this opportunity to follow her true passion: the law.
After taking a paralegal course, receiving her certificate and getting a job as a paralegal at a corporate law firm, Anne Marie quickly discovered she wanted to go further in the legal field, and was encouraged to do so by her colleagues. After a little nudging, Anne Marie went back to obtain her undergrad, which eventually led to law school. While continuing to work as a Paralegal, Attorney Howells pursued both an Associate of Science and a Bachelor of Arts degree, completing each with honors. She graduated from Dickinson Law School in the top third of her class.
After graduation, Anne Marie began working for a local attorney, but quickly realized she wanted to run her own practice and ventured off on her own.
