To provide first-rate service to clients facing civil litigation or a government investigation, you first have to understand their business and industry. That is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job: working alongside the excellent lawyers at V&E and directly with our clients to learn everything we can about their business and help solve the complex legal issues they are facing.
Appellate work is like solving a puzzle. The puzzle pieces are typically contracts, testimony and other trial evidence, cases, statutes, regulations, and rules. The skilled appellate lawyer will arrange the pieces in a way that achieves the client’s objective.
I love oral arguments. I love the courtroom. I love the constitutional issues I work on, especially in First Amendment cases. I have broad experience that benefits clients and allows me to help younger lawyers, in client work, in CLEs and in pro bono work.
