About me

I am a first-chair litigator with a record of implementing creative legal and public relations strategies to minimize risk and facilitate favorable resolutions.  Clients and colleagues call on me to resolve emergent situations and disputes that often involve political or other public sensitivities that require sound judgment, discretion, and creativity.  I am a skilled negotiator, and my experience extends to an array of industries and legal disciplines, including:


* Contract disputes, business torts and trade secrets litigation
* Environmental contamination/remediation disputes
* Professional ethics and liability
* Employment and discrimination
* Civil rights investigations and racial profiling
* Securities fraud and investigations
* Police practices
* NCAA investigations and university discipline proceedings
* Federal False Claims Act (whistleblower) litigation


Attorney Advertising: Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
