Myra is a litigator and member of Nixon Peabody’s ERISA Litigation and Complex Commercial Disputes practice groups. She represents entities and individuals in a wide range of disputed matters and is skilled in effectively resolving complex legal issues.
I represent clients in federal and state trial and appellate courts in numerous complex litigation matters, including ERISA class actions, tax disputes in state and federal courts nationwide, financial services, consumer law issues, lender liability, contracts, bankruptcy and creditor-debtor, fraud, business torts, and real estate foreclosures.
I am also experienced in advising clients and litigating complex claims brought under a variety of federal regulatory statutes, including the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Truth-in-Lending-Act (TILA), the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA).
I advise and assist clients in all phases of litigation proceedings, including negotiating settlements, drafting complaints, conducting discovery, and trial preparation. I bring this understanding and skill into all that I do to deliver high-quality client service and cost-effective representation.
Before joining Nixon Peabody, Myra was a litigation attorney in the Washington, DC, office of an Am Law 100 law firm and law clerk for the Honorable John T. Cook in Campbell County Circuit Court.
With the advent of constantly evolving technology as well as increased competition in the marketplace, we will continue to take a focused approach to promoting our clients’ interests aggressively and effectively, with a constant eye towards client satisfaction.
