Michael A. Carvin for Bush

Carvin served as a deputy assistant attorney general in the Reagan administration from 1983-1988. His firm, Cooper, Carvin & Rosenthal, has represented Bank of America and Fleet Financial Group.

Known as a trial and appellate litigator, Carvin has argued several cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. He represented a group of private citizens who wanted to urge the justices to reject a Census Bureau plan to adjust its data to compensate for an expected undercount of minorities.

Carvin's other high-profile cases include his representation for Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, who sued a Democratic colleague, Jim McDermott of Washington, for allegedly distributing an illegally intercepted cellular telephone conversation between Boehner and then-Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Carvin received his bachelor's degree from Tulane University and his law degree from George Washington University.

David Boies for Gore
