National Lawyers Convention at the Mayflower Hotel

This past November 13-15, we were honored to photograph the annual Lawyers Convention hosted by the Federalist Society at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC. This yearly event consists of a series of panels, debates and receptions with the highlight being a sold out black tie dinner held at the Washington Marriott Marquis on Thursday evening. The keynote speaker at the reception was Supreme Court Justice, Samuel Alito. Here are some images from the convention.
