Billy is originally from Long Island, NY. He first came to the DMV in 2011 to get his undergraduate degree in International Studies at American University. He later returned to get his law degree from American University Washington College of Law after a year teaching English at a primary school in Nanjing, China.
Prior to joining Melone Hatley, P.C., Billy gained valuable experiences across a broad range of practice areas, including international human rights law, environmental law, antitrust law, immigration, and mortgage foreclosure. During law school, he worked on a number of international law-related projects, which included investigating international crimes, advising UN officials, and representing clients held in prolonged solitary confinement as a student attorney. After law school, he served as a law clerk at DC Superior Court and then later joined the firm Hausfeld LLP and worked on several complex civil litigation matters, including climate change-related litigation. As a result, he has the experience to handle your matter with a strong attention to detail, as well as with the sensitivity necessary to ensure your needs are taken care of.
