After graduating from Duke Law School, I clerked for the Hon. Monroe G. McKay, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in Salt Lake City, UT. After my clerkship, I spent 3 and a half years as a commercial litigator in the Honors Program at the U.S. Department of Justice, in Washington, DC. I then moved into private practice at the large national firm, Morgan Lewis, where I focused on appellate and Supreme Court practice, commercial litigation, and trademark litigation. After two years, I returned to my roots in Boston and joined Foley Hoag, a major Boston law firm. There, I practiced primarily in the area of patent litigation, trademark litigation, and computer and Internet law. In June 2007, I decided to leave Foley Hoag and open my own practice. I now focus on business litigation, intellectual property, and appellate litigation. I draw upon my years of practice for the federal government and large law firms to provide big firm expertise and sophistication to companies and individuals with business-related disputes, at a more affordable price.
