Regent-trained attorney dedicated to the cause of individual liberty for America’s workers
Washington, DC (April 26, 2012) – The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation has hired Nathan McGrath, a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as an addition to its legal staff.
McGrath is an active member of the Bar of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and 2010 graduate of the Regent University School of Law in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
"Nathan brings to the Foundation energy and dedication to defending and advancing individual liberty against the injustices of compulsory unionism in the workplace," said Ray LaJeunesse, vice president and legal director of the National Right to Work Foundation.
"He will assist the Foundation's cutting-edge legal team in defending America's workers from Big Labor's growing influence in the government sector, enforcing individual employees' rights against compulsory unionism, and establishing new precedents to increase workplace freedom for America's workers."
As the newest of the Foundation's 12 staff attorneys, McGrath will help build on the Foundation's litigation record for union-abused workers that includes 15 cases argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. Currently, National Right to Work Foundation attorneys represent thousands of workers in nearly 200 active cases nationwide.
Before joining the Foundation, McGrath was an Associate Attorney for Lawlor & Lawlor, P.C., in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and served as an intern for a Virginia Court of Appeals judge, the Honorable Robert J. Humphreys. Prior to starting his legal career, McGrath worked at the National Right to Work Committee, advocating for legislation across the country to roll-back Big Labor's forced unionism powers.
Additionally, McGrath spent several years as a legislative assistant for U.S. House Representative Donald A. Manzullo (IL-16), during which time he handled Rep. Manzullo's labor policy, in addition to other policy issues.
While at Regent, McGrath participated in a variety of activities and organizations and was the Symposium & Senior Editor of the Regent University Law Review, and Vice Chairman of the Trial Advocacy Board. He holds a bachelor's degree in Communications with a minor in Business from Grove City College, where he graduated in 2004.
