Good litigation comes down to details. From filing a complaint to defending a win on appeal, the biggest case can turn on knowing even the smallest detail – and knowing what to do with it. Paul Wiley masters the facts of each client's case and guides it to a successful resolution.

As a member of the Advanced Administrative Litigation Clinic at Washington and Lee University School of Law, Paul represented coal miners and their families seeking federal black lung benefits. He briefed and argued the defense of a miner's award of benefits before the Department of Labor's Benefits Review Board. Paul also deposed an adverse medical expert and communicated directly with clients.

Before law school, Paul worked as the speechwriter for the British Ambassador in Washington, D.C.; as a Digital Strategy intern at the White House; and as the communications director for a nonprofit advocacy group. Paul clerked for the Honorable Donald W. Lemons, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, prior to joining Hogan Lovells. He was the Symposium Editor for the Washington and Lee Law Review and was a two-time finalist in the John W. Davis Moot Court Competition.
