Bolstering the firm’s litigation and white-collar practices in South Florida, Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to welcome Joseph A. DeMaria as a partner to the firm’s Miami office.

“South Florida is a key region where we wanted to expand our footprint to better serve our clients. We’re thrilled to be gaining this team, who shares our approach to providing excellent client service,” said Fox’s Firmwide Managing Partner Mark L. Silow.

“Joseph further expands Fox’s litigation and white-collar criminal defense practices – which have all gained an increasingly national profile in the past year -- and gives our clients added resources for their needs in the dynamic Miami region,” Silow said.

An active member of the Miami legal community, he serves as an adjunct professor for the University of Miami School of Law, is a past chair of the Business Litigation Certification Committee of the Florida Bar and serves on the Florida Bar’s Federal Practice Committee.

DeMaria earned his J.D., cum laude, from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Law and his B.A., magna cum laude, from St. Bonaventure University.
