He has argued in the US Supreme Court and nearly every federal circuit, as well as the New Jersey Appellate Division and the D.C. Court of Appeals.

Super Lawyers list in 2011-2014. He has repeatedly been selected as a leading US appellate lawyer by Chambers, Legal 500, and The Best Lawyers in America.
