Attorney Profile

Since 1984 I have represented and advised clients on all manner of federal and state regulation of telecommunications entities, particularly in the wireless and emerging technology areas. In addition, I have also provided counsel on transactional and public policy matters involving and affecting such entities, including due diligence, opinions and required Federal and State regulatory approvals. Additional specific regulatory matters and areas include compliance with the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and Junk Fax Act and related regulations administrered by the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC") and data privacy and security issues. I also advise service providers, applicants and consultants regarding the requirements under the Schools and Libraries Support Mechanism (E-Rate Program) administered by the FCC and the Universal Service Administrative Company ("USAC"), including general counseling and representations in appeals before USAC and the FCC. Finally, I advise clients on wireless siting issues.
