U.S. Department of Justice
Associate Deputy Attorney General
Washington, DC, USA

In October 2016, I returned to the Department of Justice in Washington as an Associate Deputy Attorney General.  Prior to that, I had spent 18 years with the Department of Justice before joining the Charleston (SC) office of Moore and Van Allen in August 2013.  From 2008 to 2013, I served in Washington, DC, as an Associate Deputy Attorney General.  In that capacity, I provided advice and counsel to the Deputy Attorney General of the United States on issues ranging from complex criminal investigations and policy matters to professional responsibility, ethics, employment, and civil rights matters.  Prior to joining the Deputy Attorney General’s office, I served as the United States Attorney in two judicial districts, the Northern District of California (2007-2008) and South Carolina (2001).  For two years (2005-2006), I served in Washington as the General Counsel of the Executive Office for United States Attorneys (EOUSA), where I advised the United States Attorneys’ Offices throughout the country on employment and ethics issues.  I served as the First Assistant U.S. Attorney in South Carolina from 2001 to 2004.  While serving in various capacities in the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of South Carolina, I tried approximately twenty-four federal criminal cases involving public corruption, health care fraud, bank fraud, mail and wire fraud, narcotics conspiracy, and homicide, including two capital cases.  In private practice, I represented individuals and entities in matters involving white collar crime, government regulatory investigations, and health care issues.
