His clients range from small businesses and community banks to Fortune 100 publicly traded entities and large-scale lenders. He brings an innovative, practical, and solution-based approach to Howard & Howard.

Mr. VanFleet received his J.D. from the University of Illinois College of Law in 1990 and his B.S. in Finance from the University of Illinois College of Commerce and Business Administration in 1987.
