The Federal Practice Group is pleased to announce Isabel Cottrell is the newest Associate to join the firm’s ever growing Federal Employment Law Group. Ms. Cottrell is fluent in both English and Spanish and has substantive experience in federal employment law. She will provide representation for her clients by pursuing claims of discrimination at the EEOC and defending her clients against disciplinary and adverse actions.

In her first position out of law school, Ms. Cottrell began as a law clerk before being elevated to associate and served as an associate for two years at her second firm.

“We were looking to expand our federal employment practice group and we were happy about the talented candidate pool from which we had to select,” said Federal Practice Group Founding Partner Debra D’Agostino. “However, Isabel’s legal skills stood out immediately and separated her from the group. We found her reputation with both clients and attorneys to be stellar and we are very pleased she joined us.”
