During Law School, he clerked for the firm of Goldstein, Goldstein and Hilley and in 2016, after 4 years as a sole practitioner, he became the senior associate at the firm. In 2019, he co-founded the law firm of Hunter, Lane & Jampala, where his focus remains on criminal trial litigation, criminal appeals and post-conviction writs of habeas corpus.
