Thank you for reading about my experience practicing law, and other related areas. I have several decades of experience in the area of administrative law representing clients before Federal agencies like the FAA in Washington, D.C., as well as state regulatory agencies across the United States.
For many years I have represented broadcast and telecommunications clients in administrative procedures before Federal regulatory agencies, primarily involving licensing and other authorization proceedings before the Federal Communications Commission in Washington, D.C. Bob has also represented communications companies before numerous state regulatory agencies around the country. I have also practiced before the United States Department of Commerce, the Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Aviation Administration, and other Federal regulatory agencies. As in-house counsel for a NASDAQ-listed Competitive Local Exchange Carrier that provided local exchange telecommunications and Internet services in 36 major markets nationwide, I have practiced before state regulatory commissions in more than a dozen states, including California, New York and Virginia.
I formerly sat on the Board of Directors of the North American Numbering Plan Billing and Collection, Inc., an entity authorized by the Federal Communications Commission which reviews Federal regulatory policies and issues concerning billing and collection practices by telecommunications companies throughout the United States and abroad.
I currently sits on the Policy Committee of the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce, whose areas of concern include Dulles Airport. The GRCC regularly addresses economic policies to foster business development in Northern Virginia and the entire State of Virginia, including the aviation industry. Through the GRCC, I have recently participated in planning meetings with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority concerning issues surrounding possible new aviation regulations for Dulles Airport in Northern Virginia.
For more than a dozen years I have proudly served U.S. military service veterans through a federal appellate practice representing veterans in disability claims appeals before the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. I also have served as first-chair counsel for appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
I am a graduate of Colgate University, and Fordham University School of Law. I was formerly admitted to practice in the State of New York and am a current member of the Virginia, Maryland and District of Columbia Bars.
