Background

Attorney Jordan D. Howlette established JD Howlette Law and its civil rights division, Justly Prudent, following a five-year career as a trial attorney in the Tax Division of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ).

While at the DOJ, Mr. Howlette successfully litigated dozens of civil tax cases and controversies on behalf of the United States in federal courts around the country, securing millions of dollars in favorable judgments while also advocating for equitable justice. He is intimately familiar with the procedures, strategies, and processes of litigating in federal court and with resolving multi-faceted civil disputes involving high-dollar amounts, complex statutory and regulatory provisions, and diverse parties from different jurisdictions. 

Mr. Howlette graduated cum laude from New England Law | Boston in 2016 and is a veteran of the United States Army. In 2019, while working at the DOJ, Mr. Howlette obtained a Master's in Business Administration from American University's Kogod School of Business and subsequently established MyTaxRights, LLCs—a tax information company dedicated to educating individuals about their federal tax rights and responsibilities.

In December 2020, Mr. Howlette co-founded the Center for Advancement of Tax Equity (CFATE), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that promotes tax education and outreach initiatives to improve the quality of life and economic conditions for individuals from underserved communities.
