About me: I am a partner with Foley & Lardner LLP and a member of the firm’s General Commercial Litigation and White Collar Defense Practices and Health Care Industry Team.
Prior to joining Foley, I was a Partner with Epstein Becker & Green, P.C.
My practice focuses on complex civil, commercial, and health law litigation and white collar criminal defense.
My experience includes counseling corporations and individuals in a wide range of industries. I have represented clients in federal and state trial and appellate courts, arbitrations and other modes of alternative dispute resolution.
My diverse litigation experience includes representation of:
I am also committed to pro bono work, and have focused on representing asylum seekers. Among other representations, I have successfully represented a tortured political prisoner from Tanzania; a gay man from Uganda; a Salvadoran woman whose family is targeted by violent gangs, a Sudanese professor who was tortured after speaking out on Darfur; a female political activist from Cameroon; and a political dissident from Haiti.
I am admitted to practice in the state of Massachusetts, and am also permitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court; U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit; U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit; and the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.
I was selected for inclusion in the 2004-2009 lists of Massachusetts Super Lawyers®. Only 5% of the lawyers in the state were selected.
I serve as the chairman of the board of directors of Temple Beth Zion in Brookline, Massachusetts and also serve as a member of the personnel committee of the Solomon Schechter Day School of Greater Boston.
