He has “served as lead counsel or co-counsel in over100 major civil rights and class action cases in federal courts throughout the United States involving access to education, health and welfare benefits, administrative law, the rights of children and indigenous people, rights of immigrants and refugees, and complex individual cases involving constitutional, criminal, transnational, and corporate issues.
