2013-14 Sidore Lecture Series: Whatever Happened to Ethics?
Mark Howard and David Ruoff, Howard and Ruoff, PLLC, former prosecutors providing criminal defense, personal injury, and civil litigation legal services
Attorneys Howard and Ruoff discuss the constitutional principle behind the right to counsel, even when you know the defendant is guilty, and the role of attorneys as teachers in geopolitics.
Mark Howard’s career in law spans more than 25 years, during which time he has worked for private law practices and served publicly, first as assistant attorney general, and later as chief of appeals for the District of New Hampshire. Over the years he has prosecuted hundreds of violent crimes, drug offenses, and white-collar crimes.
David Ruoff launched his career as staff attorney for the New Hampshire Public Defender, and subsequently joined the Rockingham County Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted numerous high-profile cases. Following a six-and-a-half-year stint with the state attorney general’s office, where he prosecuted homicides, environmental, and public integrity crimes, he entered into private law practice. Ruoff’s practice is focused primarily on state and federal criminal defense, as well as civil litigation.
