NOTE: I retired effective October 18, 2018 and no longer actively practice law.  


While an Energy Lawyer and Litigator,
 I
 defended or took over one hundred depositions around the country, tried cases before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and state agencies, negotiated settlements, appeared before multiple courts of appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court, argued in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and have been a long-time member of the Energy Bar Association.

Before entering private practice, I worked at FERC as an economist, auditor, an expert witness in accounting and rate proceedings, and trial attorney.  I served as Acting Director of the Division of Special Pipeline Rates, and as a technical and legal advisor to a FERC Commissioner.

In private practice I worked for clients large and small, including state agencies and attorney generals.  I represented clients in complex, multi-million (and in some cases billion) dollar litigation involving issues ranging from natural gas and electric rates to market manipulation and affiliate self-dealing.  I represented individuals and small companies in enforcement, hydro, QF and FOIA matters, among others.

Over the course of my career, I've worked with many terrific people — friends, colleagues, and opponents — and, to paraphrase a Jimmy Buffett lyric, "have learned much from all of your styles.”  Gratefully so.

My sincere thanks to you all!




“I believe people are well intentioned.  But I have great respect for the corrosive influence of bias, systematic distortions of thought,
the power of rationalization, the guises of self-interest, and the inevitability of unintended consequences.”
