High Swartz LLP is pleased to welcome commercial litigation attorney Roxanne Zhilo to the firm. Roxanne joins the firm after previous experiences at law firms in Ocean, New Jersey, and Philadelphia.
Much of Roxanne’s practice focuses on business litigation and complex civil litigation matters. She also works as SMB counsel, has experience with employment law and small contract matters. She regularly advises multiple non-profits and businesses in risk mitigation, liability assessment, procedural and protocol framework, and employee policies.
Roxanne received her J.D. from Villanova University School of Law in 2014. During her time there, she authored her 3L thesis on the intersection of Social Media and E-Discovery within the realm of Litigation. This exploration delved into how the standard for invading privacy evolves within specific legal domains and would shape Roxanne’s subsequent interest in the technology space. Her role as a liaison was further cultivated in her work with extensive data sets, electronic discovery, and various aspects of litigation technology. In recognition of her work, Roxanne was included in the Legal Intelligencer’s Lawyers on the Fast Track and Super Lawyers Rising Stars lists.
Roxanne was born and raised in the Bustleton section of Northeast Philadelphia and is an active member of her community. She has helped to form and advise non-profits for school programing, town watches, and even a music festival. Roxanne is fluent in Russian and works with various religious and immigrant groups.
