I focus my practice on resolution of all forms of business and commercial disputes in state and federal courts. To a number of my clients, I also serve as an outside counsel, providing incorporation and corporate book maintenance services, registering their trademarks, and preparing agreements specific to their areas of business. I also teach business law at the University of Miami School of Business Administration.
A native of Russia, I am fluent in Russian. I earned my undergraduate degree in Political Science, with honors, from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, and my law degree from the University of Miami School of Law.
In the past, I served as a member of a Grievance Committee of The Florida Bar, investigating complaints filed against attorneys; on the Board of Directors of the Dade County Bar Association, including its Executive Committee; and as a chair of the International Law Committee of the DCBA.
I represent indigent clients on a pro bono basis for Put Something Back Project of Miami-Dade County. I often volunteer as a judge for the University of Miami School of Law C. Clyde Atkins Spring Advanced Moot Court Competition, which tests students’ advocacy skills in a simulation of arguments before the Florida Supreme Court.
I am admitted to practice in Florida state courts, as well as the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
