Moss, a First Amendment enforcement issue arising out of the demonstrations in southern Oregon during President Bush's 2004 campaign visit.
 
A partner in Tonkon Torp’s Intellectual Property, Information Privacy & Security and Financial Services practice groups, Wilker was selected for The Best Lawyers in America® for 2013 for First Amendment and Commercial Litigation.
