Jennifer Howard, Esq.

Senior Attorney

Jennifer Howard is a graduate of the Mercer University School of Law, with a Master of Laws in International Law from the University of San Diego School of Law. As an undergraduate student, Ms. Howard studied in Moldova, Romania, and Hungary, and she returned to Europe as a graduate law student to study international human rights and comparative law at the Columbia Global Center in Paris, France.

Prior to joining Joseph & Hall P.C., Ms. Howard interned with the University of San Diego’s Immigration Clinic and with the university’s Public Interest Law Center. Ms. Howard also volunteered with the Junior League of San Diego as a Legislative Liaison and with the San Diego County Human Trafficking Task Force, working as a community and policy advocate for human trafficking survivors and transition-age foster youth.

Ms. Howard’s work at Joseph & Hall P.C. focuses primarily on family- and humanitarian-based petitions and applications, removal defense, appeals, and federal litigation; however, she is also working to build her artist, athlete, and entertainer visa caseload. Ms. Howard has represented clients in matters before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), and various state and federal appellate courts; and she is a compassionate but fierce advocate for the firm’s vulnerable populations, including 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals, asylees, unaccompanied minors, and survivors of human trafficking and domestic and gender-based violence and abuse.

Ms. Howard is a member of the Colorado Bar Association’s (CBA) Spanish-Speaking Lawyer’s Committee, and she currently serves on the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) National Lawyer Well-Being Committee, AILA Colorado’s Legislative Advocacy Committee, and the CBA Immigration Council. She has presented locally and nationally on various topics, including the basics of U.S. immigration law, the intersection of immigration issues and family law, and issues of lawyer well-being.

Ms. Howard is also a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) and certified Deep Stretch & Meditation teacher, with additional training and background work in injury prevention and recovery, trauma-informed yoga and care, expressive arts healing for survivors of gender-based violence, and de-escalation tools to reduce anger, aggression, and trauma. Her work as a yoga teacher focuses on offering yoga, meditation, breathwork, and other wellness tools to help immigration professionals and staff in their high-stress work with often-vulnerable client populations, as well as using meditation and breathwork practices with her clients in preparing to testify on often-sensitive personal matters before immigration judges and officials.

In her spare time, Ms. Howard enjoys traveling, water and snow sports, live music and the arts, and exploring the outdoors with her twelve-year-old dachshund mix.
