When a task needs to be completed, I’ll do everything in my power to get it done quickly and get it done well. In addition to my very strong work ethic, I’ve got a real knack for uncovering and managing relevant information. With a dogged pursuit of answers, there’s nothing I can’t figure out.
With valuable experience working in both the civil and criminal legal arenas, Seth brings outstanding skills in drafting, legal writing, research, technology, and case and data management to the firm. In both state and U.S. District Court clerkships, Seth worked on a wide variety of matters, including one of the largest and most complex drug prosecutions in the history of the U.S. Department of Justice and one of the nation’s largest multidistrict litigation cases.
Seth adeptly produces virtually everything a trial court requires. He has written nearly 100 court opinions and memorandum on motions for summary judgment, motions to dismiss, and various complex discovery disputes. These also include memorandum in support of a judge’s decisions before the Pennsylvania appellate courts. Subjects include everything from constitutional and criminal issues to the resolution of complex commercial disputes.
As a clerk, Seth took ownership over the progression of his cases, keeping abreast of their status and substance and attending every court conference to assist with the speedy resolution of discovery disputes. He also wrote the focused, easily digestible opinions characteristic of the judges for whom he clerked. Prior to that, he worked as a financial research analyst for a premier New York securities fraud litigation firm and with a large international law firm as a commercial litigation paralegal focusing on contract and patent infringement actions against large pharmaceutical companies. Seth also served as a judicial intern in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
His rich background enables Seth to “read” a room and tailor communication to particular audiences. He takes an empathetic, compassionate approach, placing himself in the client’s position to gain a better understanding of their perspectives and concerns. Seth views it as his responsibility to analyze pieces of information that supervisors or clients don’t have the bandwidth to consider and clarify issues for them. He finds it gratifying to gather subsets of complex information from many places to resolve complex problems.
Additionally, Seth has a passion for pro bono service, having volunteered as an attorney for Philadelphia VIP and served on the Executive Committee for the Young Lawyers Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association.
