Notable Cases

  • Co-counsel to three families facing foreclosure who were victims of extortion and a bid-rigging scheme. A federal jury returned a verdict on all claims, resulting in a $1.2 million damages award and permanent injunctive relief against the defendants.
  • Co-lead counsel in a federal wage and hour class and collective action filed on behalf of workers who were hired to build a solar farm. Case resulted in a settlement class.
  • Court-approved liaison counsel on behalf of a class of investors who alleged federal securities fraud arising from the termination of a company’s CEO immediately following a highly-publicized merger. The case resulted in a $146.25 million settlement.
  • Court-approved liaison counsel on behalf of a class of investors who alleged securities fraud arising from alleged material misstatements and omissions regarding the viability of the defendant’s renewable energy projects. The case resulted in a $19.5 million settlement.
  • Successfully briefed and argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, sitting en banc, that a federal gun law is unconstitutionally vague, and that conspiracy to commit Hobbs Act robbery is not a “crime of violence” as defined in that law. Both issues were matters of first impression in the Fourth Circuit, and the ruling established new Circuit precedent.
  • Represented the owner-practitioner of a behavioral health care company in a years-long Medicaid fraud investigation. The investigation was terminated without criminal prosecution.
  • Represented a woman under federal indictment for participating in a pill mill conspiracy. Presented a case of actual innocence to the federal prosecutor, resulting in the government’s voluntary dismissal of all charges.
  • Represented a man under federal indictment and facing a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence for possession of controlled substances and participating in a conspiracy to traffic controlled substances. After winning a motion to suppress, the government voluntarily dismissed all charges.
  • Filed a petition in the U.S. Supreme Court challenging a client’s sentence under a provision of the Armed Career Criminal Act that had been deemed unconstitutionally vague in another case. The petition was granted, the sentence was vacated, and the case was remanded to the district court.
