Jack was a political science major at Virginia Tech before graduating magna cum laude from George Mason University School of Law. While there, he was a member of the Law Review, in which his note about court decisions affecting alternative dispute resolution, What’s in a Name? Why the Judicially-Named Grounds for Vacating Arbitral Awards Should Remain Available in Light of Hall Street, was selected for publication. He was also a member of the Trial Advocacy Board at GMUSL, and his team was a finalist in the American Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Section of the New York City Regional Trial Advocacy Competition.
Jack became interested in employment law when he clerked for an employment law firm during law school. He gained experience there with Title VII, False Claims Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, and retaliation claims from initial negotiations through appeals.
Over the years, he has worked on cases ranging from multimillion-dollar breach of contract and business organization suits … to securing a neutral reference for a teacher moving from private to public school … to ensuring that a clothing designer got a severance package to open a small business. He believes in dedicating himself to whatever is necessary to do high quality work, even if it means long hours, and he maintains the strategic mindset of a trial lawyer even when he expects a case to settle. Jack is a particularly persuasive writer, especially when complex issues are involved. He has drafted winning arguments for trial court motions, as well as a successful appeal in Maryland state court.
In his spare time, Jack likes to hike and fish in the mountains surrounding the Shenandoah Valley and on the Shenandoah River. He enjoys playing golf and softball, but also likes to kick back and read a good book or watch television. His favorite author is Cormac McCarthy, and his favorite TV show is “Breaking Bad.” His favorite sport is baseball, and he has thrown warm-up pitches in the Nationals Park bullpen – alas, not as a pro baseball player but as part of a tour.
