I graduated from Duke Law School in 1993, and then clerked for Hon. Monroe G. McKay, on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Salt Lake City. Following my clerkship, I joined the U.S. Department of Justice as an Honors Program Trial Attorney in the Commercial Litigation Branch. After three and a half years at DOJ, I left for Morgan, Lewis & Bockius in D.C., where I focused on business and trademark/Internet litigation and appellate work before the U.S. Courts of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court. Thereafter, I moved back to the Boston area and joined Foley Hoag in Boston, where I focused on patent litigation and computer/Internet disputes. After 7 years, I left Foley Hoag to open my own practice in July 2007.
