“It’s funny how you fall into the things in your life.” 

New York City Council Legislative Attorney Cullen Howe let his interests guide him in his career practicing environmental law. While growing up, Cullen and his family took summer vacations to National Parks, igniting his passion for this subject.

“People who follow their interests are passionate about the work they do,” 

This has always been Cullen’s motto. Throughout his career, Cullen has gravitated toward his interest in green buildings and sustainable development. Cullen is currently working on several projects for New York City, including drafting legislation with a particular focus on energy efficiency, sustainability, and solid waste issues. These projects will help the city become more environmentally responsible and will address what Cullen believes is the number one issue facing our world: climate change.

Tackling climate change is no easy job, but Cullen gladly accepts the challenge of educating lawyers and the public-at-large about this issue, as well as the enormous amount of cooperation it will take to adequately address this problem. 

In addition to his work ongoing work on climate change, Cullen is co-author of The Legal and Regulatory Landscape of Hydraulic Fracturing,which has recently been added as a resource on Lexis Advance and also available at the LexisNexis® Store.
