BURLINGTON, December 9, 2019:
Langrock Sperry & Wool, LLP is pleased to announce that attorneys Eric D. Jones, Suzanna C. Miller and William A. Vasiliou have joined the firm, now totaling a team of 29.
ERIC D. JONES became of counsel to the firm in December 2019, after many years of practice at another major law firm, and at his own firm. He was graduated from Northwestern University and received his law degree from Vermont Law School.
Eric has extensive experience handling labor and employment law matters and general commercial litigation. In his labor and employment practice, he handles all types of disputes – lawsuits in state and federal courts, arbitrations, and government enforcement agency proceedings.
In addition, Eric counsels employers of all types and sizes (private and public, unionized and union-free, start-ups and growing businesses) in establishing sound employment practices and policies. He also works with Human Resources professionals to handle the day-to-day employment matters that routinely arise in the workplace.
As a commercial litigator, Eric represents businesses and individuals in a broad range of disputes, including claims of breach of contract, fraud, unfair trade practices, and business torts. Eric lives in Shelburne with his wife.
SUZANNA C. MILLER joined the firm as an associate in December 2019. She was graduated from the New School for Social Research and received her law degree from Brooklyn Law School.
Suzanna’s practice focuses on estate planning, and trust and probate estate administration. Prior to moving to Vermont, Suzanna worked in both large and small law firms in New York City in the fields of estate planning and administration, litigation, and commercial real estate. Following law school, Suzanna clerked for two years for Hon. Ed Carnes of the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
Originally a California native, Suzanna moved to Vermont in 2005. She co-founded Vermont Cookie Love in 2006, which she grew from a tent at the Shelburne Farmer’s market to a thriving local brand, while simultaneously practicing New York law remotely, and raising two young children. She lives in North Ferrisburgh with her two teenage children.
WILLIAM A. VASILIOU joined the firm as an associate in August 2019 after owning and operating his own firm. He was also a partner in one of northeast Ohio’s preeminent criminal defense firms. He was graduated from Wheaton College and received his M.B.A. at the University of Akron College of Business and his law degree at the University of Akron School of Law.
William is a trial attorney, with a focus on criminal defense, personal injury cases, and family law. William also has criminal and civil appellate experience in several of Ohio’s intermediate courts of appeal and he plans on expanding this area of his practice to the Vermont Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
William has served as lead or co-counsel in multiple criminal jury trials, numerous criminal and civil appeals, and countless pretrial motion hearings, as well as family court bench trials. William is also a graduate of the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyer’s College, where he spent a month in Dubois, Wyoming refining and improving his trial lawyer skills. He lives in Vergennes with his wife.
