ig firm resources, small firm attention, and guidance: Regan Zambri Long PLLC leverages its deep bench of legal knowledge to bring more than 100 combined years of collective experience to bear for its personal injury clients, many of whom come to the firm facing extraordinary medical and financial challenges. The key, says President and Senior Partner Patrick M. Regan, is to prepare each case for trial with only one result in mind. “We position our cases for winning in the courtroom,” he says. “Our clients know we are true client advocates, not just a firm focused on quick settlements in order to drive quantity.”

What does drive the firm, of course, is quality. It is apparent at every step of the way, from case intake through resolution. Regan says his colleagues work together to aggressively pursue winning strategies, from utilizing its extensive network of experts to conducting no-stone-left-unturned investigations to build cases that are tough to beat in the courtroom. Indeed, says Regan, this resultsoriented seven-attorney boutique regularly obtains verdicts that reach into the multi-millions; in one case involving legal malpractice, a jury awarded $7.3 million—one of the largest such verdicts in District of Columbia history—to a young woman who was paralyzed in an accident and had filed suit against her original lawyer. The firm is comfortable with a broad spectrum of plaintiffs’ personal injury matters, including wrongful death, traumatic injuries, defective products, medical malpractice, and more. “It’s simple,” Regan says. “Regardless of the particulars of individual matters, each case is about seeking accountability against negligent individuals, corporations, or systems in order to trigger change.” The firm routinely goes up against well-defended, well-funded corporate behemoths— and wins. In 2016, for example, it won a $6.5 million personal injury verdict against Sam’s Club; in another matter, the firm obtained a $6.2 million verdict—eventually upheld by the Virginia Supreme Court—for a skier who suffered a traumatic brain injury. “We don’t give up,” Regan says. “We’re driven by a deep sense of justice and of right versus wrong. Each case is unique, and we find the best path to resolution depending on its individual circumstances.” It’s no wonder, then, that lawyers and judges alike frequently refer cases to Regan Zambri Long. It’s also no wonder that its attorneys are consistently recognized by their peers for their professional achievements and excellence, earning consistent placement on Best Lawyers® and Super Lawyers lists. They also collectively belong to dozens of legal and professional organizations, underscoring their commitment to promoting excellence in the legal industry. “We are advocates in the truest sense of the word,” Regan says. “Making a difference for people in need is our mission, and we will never waver from it.”

In order to collect feedback on firm and attorney work within specific regions, Best Lawyers curates “metro areas.” For research purposes, smaller and more rural cities located within a reasonable distance to larger cities are combined into single geographical regions— metro areas—to help us collect as much feedback and data for specific individuals, firms, and practice areas, as possible. We also award “Lawyer of the Year” accolades through these metro area distinctions.

For more than three decades, Best Lawyers lists have been compiled by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be included on our lists. Best Lawyers’ peer-reviewed listings are now published in almost 70 countries around the world, and our presence has grown substantially in the international legal community. In the U.S. alone, Best Lawyers lists reach more than 17 million readers through newspapers and regional magazines. The 23rd edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2018) includes 58,108 attorneys in 145 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year’s publication is based on more than 7.4 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

IN THE HEADLINES Lewin & Lewin: Nathan Lewin (appellate practice; commercial litigation; criminal defense: white-collar; litigation – First Amendment, 1983) is defending Susan Abeles, an Orthodox Jewish woman who was punished by her employer, the Washington Metropolitan Airports Authority, after she took vacation from work to observe the final two days of Passover in 2013. Abeles followed proper protocol and received email approval to take leave for the holiday, but upon her return, she was suspended for five days and had been labeled as “AWOL.” Abeles felt a hostile work environment had been created, which forced her to retire early. Lewin has filed a Petition for Writ of Certiorari on her behalf.
Miller & Chevalier: The law firm has been awarded the Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year Award at the D.C. Bar’s Celebration of Leadership on June 14. The firm completed over 13,700 hours of pro bono work amongst its staff of 111 attorneys.
Regan Zambri Long: Patrick M. Regan (medical malpractice law – plaintiffs; personal injury litigation – plaintiffs, 2006) was representing several plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the D.C. Metro and the District of Columbia after an electrical malfunction led a train to fill with smoke in 2015. In the incident, one person died and more than 80 others became sick, making this the first fatality on the train system since 2009 when a crash killed nine people. A federal judge dismissed the case, saying that “first responders were not mandated to take any specific actions that day,” according to NBC, and that D.C. is protected by “sovereign immunity.”
Buckley Sandler: Andrew L. Sandler (banking and finance law; financial services regulation law; litigation – banking and finance; litigation – securities, 2010) welcomed Marshall T. Bell and Antonio J. Reynolds as partners to the firm. According to Citybizlist, Sandler said, “These are two outstanding lawyers who continually deliver high-quality legal work and exemplify Buckley Sandler’s core principles. We are grateful for their dedication to the firm and our clients.”
Miller & Chevalier: Anthony F. Shelley (employee benefits [ERISA] law; litigation – ERISA, 2011) has stepped down from his role as chair of the firm after 10 years serving on the executive committee, which included six years as chair. Marc J. Gerson, member and vice chair of the tax department, will take over his role.
Sedgwick: The law firm received a new honor by Chambers USA as a “Recognized Practitioner” for its construction practice in the District of Columbia.
Sidley Austin: James W. Lowe (antitrust law; litigation – antitrust, 2009) has joined Sidley Austin in its Washington, D.C., office in their antitrust/competition practice.

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump Consult with Attorneys
T H E N E W S
orton Rose Fulbright: Abbe David Lowell (criminal defense: white-collar, 2006) is representing Jared Kushner and has had a confidential relationship with Ivanka Trump as a result of that. Lowell will be representing Kushner as he testifies and is investigated by Congress and Special Counsel Robert Mueller after it was revealed Kushner held meetings with Russian officials before the election. The couple had first hired Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr’s Jamie Gorelick (bet-the-company litigation; commercial litigation; criminal defense: white-collar; government relations practice; litigation – antitrust; litigation – regulatory enforcement [SEC,
telecom, energy], 2005). Back in May, Gorelick had said Kushner will comply with Congress and share any requested information for meetings he had been a part of. Once Robert Mueller had been appointed to oversee the investigation, Gorelick said, “After the appointment of our former partner Robert Mueller as special counsel, we advised Mr. Kushner to obtain the independent advice of a lawyer with appropriate experience as to whether he should continue with us as his counsel,” according to The Hill. At this point, Kushner and Ivanka obtaining lawyers is standard procedure in moving forward in their investigations.

BANKRUPTCY AND CREDITOR DEBTOR RIGHTS / INSOLVENCY AND REORGANIZATION LAW AKERMAN William C. Crenshaw*
DEFENDING NOBLE ACTION Standing up for a principle is a difficult choice to make, especially when challenging discrimination or blowing the whistle on an employer.
STEPHEN Z. CHERTKOF was named the 2017 Best Lawyers® “Lawyer of the Year” for Civil Rights Law in Washington, D.C.
STEPHEN CHERTKOF believes that people with the courage to stand up to their employers deserve the full protection of the law. A Yale Law School graduate and co-founder of Heller, Huron, Chertkof & Salzman PLLC, Chertkof is proud that his firm represents individuals hurt by discrimination, retaliation, or harassment. “Discrimination continues virtually unchecked,” says Chertkof. “While people usually conceal racial prejudice, sex and age biases are often discussed openly in a way that other prejudices are not, and whistleblowers are also openly targeted.” With over 100 years of experience among the partners, the firm’s lawyers are known for their tenacity and creativity, resulting in favorable outcomes for most of their clients and setting many major precedents in employment and civil rights law. “There’s a saying: ‘Fish don’t see the water they’re swimming in,’ and this often applies to biased attitudes permeating the workplace,” explains Chertkof. “It’s our job to hold employers accountable when managers rely on bias and retaliation in making decisions that hurt people.”
DOUGLAS B. HURON has been recognized by Best Lawyers® for 2018.
RICHARD A. SALZMAN has been recognized by Best Lawyers® for 2018.

ith more than 50 years of collective experience and over a decade practicing together, Kelly Byrnes & Danker partners John E. Byrnes, Sean P. Kelly, and Maureen E. Danker all bring to the table an ability to handle the myriad complex issues, both legal and emotional, that go hand-inhand with domestic relations law. But they also understand that family law is not one-size-fits-all. “The key differentiator of this firm is that even though we all have a different approach and style, our goal is common,” says Byrnes. “And that is to get our clients focused on results as opposed to issues that may have brought them to us in the first place.”

Indeed, keeping clients focused on that elusive light at the end of the tunnel is paramount for the firm, who rely on a variety of finely honed legal skills to distill the best results. Their exceptional legal skills have earned them the recognition of their colleagues, with placement with both Best Lawyers® and Super Lawyers, as well as repeatedly being named Tier 1 in Family Law in Washington, D.C., by U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms.” That’s not to mention their tireless service to the bar, with the partners and associates holding various positions of distinction with several legal groups. But such accolades and commendations are not what brings Byrnes and his colleagues to work every day; rather, it’s the chance to help people untangle the legalities of complex relationships—and move on.

he Susan Hicks Group understands its role during clients’ times of crisis is to keep a balanced view and offer guidance throughout these difficult periods. While each case is unique, the firm operates under the premise that achieving resolution without litigation is almost always optimal. However, when negotiations fail, the attorneys are prepared to litigate at trial and on appeal, vigorously advocating for our clients. Susan Hicks, the firm’s principal, is a seasoned trial attorney with more than 30 years’ experience arguing before courts throughout Virginia. “It is always rewarding to me when people are able to look back at the process and feel that it was not as horrendous as they had feared, and that I was able to help them get through it” says Susan, a Fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and former Chair of the Virginia State Bar Family Law Board of Governors. The firm handles a multitude of family law matters, from simple pre-marital agreements to complex divorce cases with business valuations, deferred compensation issues, and volatile custody disputes.

How did you get into your practice area? I am a tax lawyer who focuses on taxexempt organizations. I started practicing as a general tax lawyer who worked on a wide variety of tax issues. One of my first assignments involved a challenging tax question for a private foundation client that involved significant public policy issues. I found the work so interesting that I began to do as much work as possible for tax-exempt organizations, and within a few years, I was able to stay completely busy on matters for tax-exempt organizations.
Were there any particular inspirations (people or events) that spurred your interest? My tax-exempt clients were and are my inspirations. I find their work to be interesting and relevant to significant social and public policy issues. Who are your typical clients? I represent all types of 501(c)(3) organizations, ranging from some of the largest private foundations and operating charities to smaller, communitybased organizations. What is your ultimate goal in your practice? My goal is to help my tax-exempt clients achieve their missions within the constraints of applicable law. Describe one of your most interesting or memorable cases. There have been many! Here’s an early example. Many years ago, before the passage of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a foundation client had an employee who was arrested while doing foundation-related work in a foreign country governed by a dictator known for very serious human rights abuses. The employee was in great jeopardy, and the foundation had to pay a border guard to allow the employee to escape the country. I was asked to research whether the payment was permissible under the U.S. private foundation rules. Fortunately, I was able to conclude that it was! What qualities do you possess that you find particularly relevant/ necessary for practicing your area of law? My clients value advice that is both legally correct and practical. If something can’t be done the proposed way, I look for legal alternatives that will accomplish the intended objective. My clients also value responsiveness and being able to provide advice on complex issues in a concise and easy to read format. I am a big believer in being responsive and providing advice in a very client-friendly format. The days of the 10page memos are long gone! What lessons have you learned along the way? I have learned that clients value lawyers who can serve as trusted advisors to help them think through all aspects of particularly complex decisions. I have also learned that clients value lawyers who can help them “see around the corner” to identify new issues that the client has not asked about and potential consequences, good and bad, from particular transactions or decisions. What other passions/interests do you have? I love to run. Last year I ran the Marine Corp Marathon and plan to do so again this year. Please provide anything else you would like to share regarding your practice. I am blessed by a group of colleagues who love working for tax-exempt organizations as much as I do!

“We couldn’t do this work if we weren’t motivated by the right reasons.”

A Small Firm with Colossal Success Regan Zambri & Long and its attorneys go the distance to deliver justice to all their clients.
atrick Regan and the six other attorneys at Regan Zambri & Long have collectively spent decades helping individuals and families recover from devastating injuries and tragedies. While each case is about bringing justice so that a life can return to normal, Regan, whose f irm is one of the go-to plaintiffs’ practices in the midAtlantic, says the f irm’s work has farreaching impacts that spread far beyond one individual. Two cases immediately spring to mind. In one, the f irm’s work helped force a recall of certain models of Chrysler-made Jeeps because the automaker placed the vehicles’ gas tanks behind the rear axle causing explosions even in minor collisions. In another, says Regan, the f irm played
a major part in changing a Maryland law that requires smoke detectors to be wired into a home’s electrical system. For one client’s family, having no such safety backup ended in tragedy when a f ire broke out after the candles they had lit during a power outage burned unattended, resulting in the deaths of two children with another suffering devastating injuries. “We took a special bill to the legislature that was enacted into law in Annapolis,” says Regan, adding that the change requires inexpensive installation of safety battery backup systems. But like many of the fights Regan Zambri & Long is involved in, the smoke detector case was a hard-earned victory, with losses being handed down in three appellate courts. “We don’t give up on
our cases, because we are fully committed to them,” Regan says. “That’s one of the founding principles of our firm, and it’s how we approach each case. We’re prepared to go the distance in every case and for every client.” In a practical sense, that means preparing every case as if it was going to end up at trial, a hallmark of the firm’s approach and one that has led to its success. Success, of course, is also a product of passion and conviction, and is what has driven Regan (along with his partners Salvatore Zambri, Victor Long and Paul Cornoni) for decades, and what will continue to push them forward in their methodical quest for justice. “We couldn’t do this work if we weren’t motivated by the right reasons,” Regan says. “There’s great satisfaction that comes with knowing you have a hand in forcing accountability on companies and on systems that have tried to cut corners and get away with it.”

M ARC SORINI FOOD & BEVERAGE LAW
How did you get into your practice area? In the late 1980s and early 1990s, I fell in love with the then-very small “microbrewery” (as small brewers were Washington, D.C. known then) scene. Shortly after graduating law school in 1994, it occurred to me that I could combine my legal career with my love of interesting drinks. Were there any particular inspirations (people or events) that spurred your interest? First and foremost, Raymond Williams, who recruited me to McDermott in 1999 after a two-year “courtship.” Others include Gary Nateman (the “beer lawyer around town” back in the 1990s), Bob Maxwell (a colorful ex-ATF official), and Mark Rodman (a lovable curmudgeon who represented wholesalers). Who are your typical clients? Supplier-tier alcohol beverage companies (breweries, wineries, distilleries, and importers) and non-beverage alcohol users (often very big companies but with more limited needs for my services), with a smattering of big and/or unique retailers thrown in. What is your ultimate goal in your practice? To provide excellent, business-friendly counsel. We want (and have) long-term clients, with relationships spanning years and often decades. Describe one of your most interesting or memorable cases. In the early- to mid-2000s, we represented a coalition of flavored malt beverage producers (products like Mike’s Hard Lemonade and Smirnoff Ice) in a nationwide project to keep these products from being classified and taxed as distilled spirits (instead of beer). The work involved was with the primary federal agency, in Congress, at the state houses and alcohol agencies of several dozen states, and even included a few pieces of litigation. One of the more memorable moments came late in the lifecycle of the issue when my coalition overturned a California regulation as contrary to statute in a California Court of Appeals. The oral argument went so well (for us—the state’s lawyer surely thought differently!), I’ll never forget how good it felt walking out of that courthouse. What qualities do you possess that you find particularly relevant/ necessary for practicing your area of law? You need to be versed in many areas of law. Our work includes supporting transactions, litigation and quasi-litigation, marketing work that feels a lot like what IP lawyers do, and excise tax work, to name a few. You also need to juggle a ton of small matters in my practice and treat each one like your most important case. What lessons have you learned along the way? There is no substitute for diligence. Please provide anything else you would like to share regarding your practice. It has been a blessing to combine my interest in great drinks with my legal profession.
