Alla has significant experience representing victims of gun violence against gun dealers, distributors and manufacturers.
She has represented litigants against the gun industry throughout the country, including in Florida, Kansas, Missouri, New York, Oregon and Wisconsin, and at every stage of the litigation process, including investigation, briefing, trial, appeal, and settlement. Her work led to a $2.2 million settlement — the largest public settlement since the passage of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act — with a gun store that sold a firearm to a woman despite receiving a warning that she was severely mentally ill. She specializes in civil litigation involving state and federal gun industry immunity and secrecy laws, as well as dangerous gun lobby laws that trample on individuals’ rights. Her cases have been profiled in publications such as the Washington Post, USA Today, and the Kansas City Star.
Prior to joining Everytown, Alla was a Senior Staff Attorney at the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence. She began her career as a Litigation Associate at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP in New York. She is a graduate of Duke Law School and Claremont McKenna College.
