Earlier in his career, Levy practiced law at two national law firms. He is also a successful entrepreneur, having co-founded two companies – VarsityBooks.com Inc., an e-commerce company focused on the sale of college textbooks, and The K-12 Group, Inc., a company that provided various services to parents and teachers of school-age children.
“My proven ability in building companies from the ground up, combined with years of experience practicing law, makes me a great fit for the entrepreneurial culture that defines RCCB,” said Levy. “I look forward to joining the RCCB team and providing our clients with the counsel necessary to achieve their goals.”
Levy earned his J.D., with honors, from The George Washington University Law School and his B.A. from Columbia University. He is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania, Virginia, the District of Columbia and the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.
