New Faces and Fellows at M&S

In addition to bringing on former Government Accountability Project counsel Richard Condit to run our new whistleblower law practice, we added two new associates and two new fellows. As we approach our 15th anniversary next fall (wow!), we can’t help but be proud at the ways in which Mehri & Skalet continues to grow and find justice for individuals in new areas of the law.

Robert DePriest joined Mehri & Skalet as an Associate Attorney in August 2015. His work focuses on civil rights litigation and Fair Labor Standards Act violations. Prior to joining the firm, Mr. DePriest worked as an attorney with The Brownell Law Firm, PC, where he defended federal employees in investigations, professional responsibility matters, and disciplinary actions.

Curtis Joyner on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and worked as an Associate at Freshfields, Bruckhaus, Deringer US LLP. Read Joanna’s full bio here.
