Law Clerk to The Honorable Carolyn D. King, United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit, 1985-86
“That’s the best tried case I have ever seen,” Federal Judge Milton Pollack told our trial team after we successfully represented a certified class of investors in a three-week jury trial against an accounting firm, receiving a 70 million dollar verdict for our clients. (The case subsequently settled.) That’s what we do at Susman Godfrey. I have achieved verdicts for both plaintiffs and defendants in jury trials. In addition, I have prevailed multiple times for my clients through summary judgment, motions to dismiss, pleas to the jurisdiction and the like.
I represent both plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of commercial matters, including securities litigation, breach of contract, fraud, and tortious interference with contract. After completing both college and law school at Yale University, I clerked for Judge Carolyn King on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, before coming to Susman Godfrey, where I am a partner.
