He has presented more than two dozen appellate arguments, including six times before the U.S. Supreme Court and three times before the en banc courts of appeals. He has briefed and argued cases covering a wide range of subject matters, with particular experience in the areas of the Commerce Clause, preemption, the Social Security and Medicare Acts, ERISA, the Bankruptcy Code, and the antitrust laws.

He is routinely involved in cases challenging the constitutionality of state legislation and the legality of federal administrative actions.
