Smith, Currie & Hancock's Washington, DC office is located in the heart of downtown at 1025 Connecticut Avenue, NW, just blocks away from the White House, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  From its founding, the firm has had a robust practice related to federal government contracts, especially federal construction contracts.  The firm’s Washington, DC office is a natural outgrowth of this important practice area.   In recent years the office has grown through the merger of Saltman & Stevens with Smith Currie in 2012 as well as through Bill Davis’ joining the office as a partner and Evie Nichols transferring to DC as an associate in 2013.  Collectively, the attorneys associated with the DC office have over 200 years of experience in federal government contracting and construction 

Prior to entering private practice, Alan Saltman was an Attorney-Advisor at the Government Accountability Office, and thereafter has successfully prosecuted enumerable bid protests and contract disputes involving all types of contracts.  Rick Goeken, for the past 17 years, has also concentrated his practice on federal contracts including those related to the sale of natural resources, access to federal lands, forest fire litigation and compliance with federal environmental rules.  Bill Davis’ practice focuses on construction litigation, including, mechanic’s lien actions, Miller Act claims, as well as insurance and surety disputes.

Also working out of both the DC office and the firm’s Atlanta office are Steve Reed and Charles Surasky.  Steve served for 18 years as an Administrative Judge and Hearing Examiner with the Corps of Engineers and the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals.   Charles specializes in the trial and arbitration of complex construction disputes involving both private and government construction contracts.

These attorneys, in addition to the associates and of counsel attorneys in the DC office and others throughout the firm, provide unparalleled experience in the federal government arena.
