Brown & James Special Projects Manager Donna Howard Honored by Missouri Lawyers Weekly as Unsung Legal Hero
August 2, 2017
Brown & James announces Missouri Lawyers Weekly has named Special Projects Manager and former longtime Human Resources Manager Donna M. Howard as an Unsung Legal Hero – Firm Administrator.
The Missouri Lawyers Weekly’s honors program recognizes non-lawyer personnel of law firms who play a critical, behind-the-scenes role in a law firm’s success. The honors program recognizes those employees on whom firms rely day-in and day-out to consistently support their efforts. These unsung heroes rise to the occasion despite anonymity.
With more than 35 years at Brown & James, Donna is considered the “glue of the firm.”
“She takes a personal and abiding interest in each employee and strives to make the firm the best possible employer,” Michael Ward, Brown & James Managing Principal, wrote in her nomination. “Her loyalty and devotion to the firm are Homeric. Her service is ubiquitous. She participates as an ex officio member of the firm’s Executive Committee and is involved in every aspect of the firm.”
The firm congratulates Donna Howard on this well-deserved honor.
