Washington-area based telecommunications, media, and technology law firm Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, P.L.C. is pleased to announce that Elizabeth Craig has joined the firm as an Associate. A recent law school graduate from American University’s Washington College of Law, Elizabeth interned with the Federal Communications Commission’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau’s Mobility Division in 2018.

Elizabeth complements her intellectual rigor with a well-rounded skill set that belies her recent graduation from law school. She received her B.A. from Butler University in actuarial science; if you need to know the first 15 digits of pi, ask her – she has them memorized. Between college and law school, Elizabeth worked at a communications corporation in the legal department where she assisted with, among other things, drafting proxy statements, contest rules, employment agreements, and license renewal applications.

Bourbon lovers can banter with Elizabeth; she wrote a paper on their international trademarks while attending law school. She also served as the Finance Coordinator for the Alternative Dispute Resolution Honor Society and as blog editor for the Intellectual Property Brief (which is why we expect her to be a valuable contributor to  CommLawBlog).

“We are excited to add someone with Elizabeth’s qualifications, abilities, and enthusiasm to our team,” said co-managing member Kathleen Victory. “We are confident that she will make great contributions to the firm and to our clients, and we look forward to helping her grow her career as a telecommunications attorney.”

Elizabeth sat for the District of Columbia bar examination in July 2019 (we wish her the best of luck as she awaits her results) and plans to take the Virginia bar in February 2020.  She will be supervised by a licensed Virginia attorney until she is admitted to the Virginia Bar.

“I am delighted to be joining Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth and to continue working in the telecommunications field,” said Elizabeth. “I am looking forward to getting in gear with the great team here at Fletcher Heald and to serving our clients.”
