About Alison
Q&A
  • What previous experiences, prior to your work at Balch, influence your practice?

    Prior to joining Balch, I spent three years clerking for United States Magistrate Judge John C. Gargiulo. During my clerkship, I worked on a wide variety of civil discovery matters, appeals from the Social Security Administration, and dispositive motions in Section 1983 litigation. During this time, I learned the importance of thorough research and the benefit of a well-written, persuasive brief. Additionally, I was able to observe the demeanor and advocacy skills of a number of attorneys in the courtroom and other conferences with the Court, which has given me insight into what strategies best serve my clients.
