FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 
 

What are your practice areas?

I limit my practice to federal law. Routinely, I represent clients in federal proceedings, such as white collar investigations and proceedings before the federal government.

What type of clients do you have?

The majority of our clients are corporations, officers, directors, health care entrepreneurs, hospitals, medical service organizations, physicians, and commercial business owners.

For how long have you been practicing in your area?

From the first day of my practice, I have focused on issues in federal and international law.

Do you handle all cases personally?

An efficient time management allows me to be fully familiar and involved in all the cases that I am jurisdictionally permitted to participate in.

If you had to describe your "Lawyer Style", what would it be?

I pursue a determined, but respectful and diplomatic approach to opposing counsel.

What are some of your most notable representations?

The list is long, very long. For example, my very first case involved a $4B liability claim that we worked on in a team of more than a hundred attorneys. In my second case, my old firm and I navigated a U.S. conglomerate through, at the time, the largest industrial bankruptcy in U.S. history. Other cases involve the representation of sovereign governments in international disputes.

How much do you charge?

A wide-spread misconception about attorney fees is to look at the hourly rate. I take pride in saying that I accomplish things in one hour that will take most lawyers five or six hours. That said, consider attorney fees an investment into a project that is important to you.

What outcome are you most proud of?

Shortly after I opened my own firm, clients were served a stack of very concerning and intimidating federal subpoenas. In a battle against one of the biggest national law firms, I, along aside my partner, was able to essentially quash fourteen federal subpoenas and, thereby, I also set a new federal precedent with respect to federal subpoena powers of attorneys.

What was your involvement with the United Nations?

I assisted the Office of the Prosecutor of the UN-War Crime Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in the prosecution of the former President of Serbia, the former Prime Minister of Serbia, the highest ranked General of the former Yugoslavian Army, and the Chief of the former Yugoslavian Secret Service.

Do you represent prominent people?

Yes, we have handled numerous high-profile cases.

What is winning a case to you?

In each case, victory is defined by the client’s objective. Some clients want to succeed as plaintiffs in litigation, while other clients may just want to avoid going to prison. Whatever drives the representation— defending, mediating, settling, litigating— we are dedicated to deliver and accomplish.

Do you prefer litigation or mediation?

I enjoy both. The context decides which one is the better fit in a certain case.

What is the most important maxim for you as a lawyer?

I believe every lawyer should be guided by determination and diplomacy.
