Served as a member of the defense team that successfully represented one of six Baltimore police officers who were charged in connection with the death of Freddie Gray. The firm’s client faced the most serious charges among the six officers charged. Following extensive discovery, motions, and a two-week bench trial, the defense team secured acquittals on all seven counts of the indictment, including second-degree murder, three manslaughter counts, assault, reckless endangerment, and misconduct in office. In this highly publicized trial, the defense team relied on the depth of its criminal defense experience, exceptional facility with complex medical issues, and extensive trial practice. By obtaining key pre-trial evidentiary rulings combined with the team’s presentation at trial, the firm succeeded in acquiring a not-guilty verdict as to all charges.

As a member of the special litigation counsel team to the Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Trustee, successfully argued before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland in Schlossberg, Chapter 11 Trustee v. Vincent Abell et al., Adversary Proceeding No.: 14-00417-TJC, that spoliation by the defendants was so egregious that terminating sanctions were justified. The Court entered a judgment that effectively required the turnover of scores of properties and bank accounts to the firm’s client. The case is significant both for its use of the continuing concealment doctrine in the recovery of assets and for the Court’s opinion on spoliation, which provides the latest, most comprehensive judicial discussion of sanctions for the destruction of ESI.
