I represent clients in complex commercial and business disputes across a variety of industries, including transportation, healthcare, and banking and financial services. I also represent and counsel clients involved in government investigations. My background includes researching and drafting dispositive motions for litigations in federal and state court, coordinating discovery review and responding to discovery requests, and preparing and conducting witness interviews.
I maintain an active pro bono practice focused on immigration, criminal justice, and other human rights issues.
During my clerkship, I gained valuable insights into how courts reach their decisions, and what factors are instrumental in making or breaking a case. I also learned how to cut to the heart of an issue and resolve cases outside of the courtroom. This experience will allow me to counsel clients in alternative, cost-effective resolutions of their disputes.
