Michael Stern specializes in legal issues affecting Congress, including congressional ethics, elections, investigations, and lobbying. He served as Senior Counsel to the U.S. House of Representatives from 1996 to 2004. He later served as Deputy Staff Director for Investigations for the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Special Counsel to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. He co-chairs the D.C. Bar’s Administrative Law and Agency Practice Section and serves on the ABA Task Force on Lobbying Reform. Needless to say, the views expressed here are entirely his own, and should in no way be ascribed to the DC Bar, the ABA, or, heaven forfend, the United States Congress.
