Since graduating from Washington and Lee School of Law in 2011, Seth has gained extensive courtroom experience throughout the northern Virginia area, litigating cases in the area district, circuit, and federal courts. When preparing and trying cases, Seth subscribes to the George Washington "organization is the soul of the army" approach, which is complimented by his lifelong love of healthy competition in athletics. Consequently, he has helped many clients achieve their legal and practical goals inside and outside of the courtroom.


Seth's early studies at The Hotchkiss School and education at Bowdoin College helped develop his love of classical philosophy, Greek and Roman language and culture, American history, and English literature. Prior to law school, Seth taught Latin and coached soccer and squash at Wakefield School in The Plains, Virginia.


When not litigating, Seth enjoys playing hockey, squash, and polo, freelance writing, and mixing music.
