Firm History 

In 1923, T. Brooke Howard founded our Firm in Alexandria, Virginia. “T. Brooke”, considered one of the most accomplished, skilled and respected criminal defense attorneys in the history of the Commonwealth, was joined in the Alexandria office by our Senior Partner, Blair D. Howard, in 1964, subsequent to Blair’s graduation from Mr. Jefferson’s University, and The American University School of Law. It did not take long for Blair to follow in his father’s footsteps, quickly stepping out of his Father’s shadow as a dominant force in the criminal courtrooms of Northern Virginia. The legendary Fairfax Commonwealth’s Attorney, Robert F. Horan, distinguished T. Brooke and Blair perfectly, stating that "The old man was a big bear. He was country. He would lay more traps for witnesses than they knew what to do with. Blair is very smooth. He's got great style." After achieving 50 years of service to the Virginia State Bar and the citizens of the Old Dominion in 2013, he continues to enjoy his reputation as one of the preeminent criminal defense attorneys, not only throughout the Piedmont and Northern Virginia, but the United States. Falling in love with horse country, Blair moved his family to Fauquier County in 1984, and his practice here in 1996.

Partner, John C. Clark, began his career as a civil, commercial and intellectual property litigator in 1999. While interning at the prestigious and nationally recognized Carlton Fields, P.A., he passed the U. S. Patent and Trademark Office Bar before even finishing his third year of law school. After graduation, he returned to work at Carlton Fields as an associate until he met his future Wife, Jeanne, in 2000.  After they were married, John moved to Casanova, Virginia in January of 2002 to be close Jeanne’s family in Fauquier County. John became a member of the D.C. Bar and took a position at the D.C. based Venable, LLP, one of the top firms in the United States, and an AmLaw 100 firm. There, he practiced as an IP litigator, focusing on patent infringement litigation, requiring extensive travel all over the country. Despite incredible success, after the birth of his first child in 2003, John realized he could not maintain the high-stress life of a corporate litigator, and be the father he wanted to be. He left Venable to begin practicing in Warrenton, Virginia, and has not looked back.

In 2013, Partner, T. Brooke Howard II, a lifelong resident of Fauquier County, joined Blair’s practice here in Warrenton. In doing so, Brooke became the third generation of the Howard family to practice law. Driven by the same passion and dedication to his clients that T. Brooke and Blair have displayed for over 90 years, Brooke has achieved on behalf of those he serves, both in the criminal and civil realms.

Today, Blair, John and Brooke come together in the heart of Warrenton to provide you and your family with over 75 years of criminal and civil litigation experience and expertise. As your team, their legal knowledge, achievements, and combined track record are unmatched in Virginia Hunt Country.
