As a private attorney I have dedicated a significant part of my practice to working with or representing victims of terrorism. In particular, I represent several family members who lost relatives in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 in a civil action against the government of Libya. Through the use of the judicial system, we are attempting to forge a new weapon for use against terrorist states as a means by which to achieve deterrence, punishment, and compensation for the victims.
