About
I began my career in litigation, focusing primarily on employment discrimination, civil rights, and family litigation—and appeals. My legal writing won me awards at Columbia Law School and the Columbia Law Review, an adjunct faculty position at New England Law, and many many appeals and dispositive motions.

After my father's small technology company was sued by a patent troll, I shifted my practice to defending businesses from patent trolls and helping small and non-U.S.-based tech and medical device companies navigate the world of commercial contracts, U.S. employment law, and regulatory compliance.

"As a small technology firm, we have relied on Attorney Cummings to draft and negotiate our service agreements, SaaS agreements, terms of service, and privacy policy—and defend us in a patent infringement suit. She is reliable, economical, and provides top-notch work. Highly recommend!"

"I contracted Mrs. Cummings for some advice on employment law. Even though she didn't have expertise in the specific area of employment law I needed help with, she produced a thorough, concise, and well-researched memo that far exceeded the results I've gotten from other boutique employment lawyers and is better than 95% of the work product I've received from white-shoe firms I've worked with in the past (that charge $800/hr or more!). Highly recommended"
