Since that time, Ms. Gold has taken and defended numerous depositions in various cases, drafted appellate briefing and assisted in preparation for oral argument, and successfully brought and/or defended several case dispositive motions.

She more recently served as second-chair in a multi-week jury trial in Maryland. Ms. Gold was named a partner of the firm in January of 2013.
