Hon. Ana C. Reyes

Judge Reyes was appointed as a United States District Judge in February of 2023, assuming the seat previously held by Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly.

Judge Reyes served as a law clerk to Judge Amalya L. Kearse on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit (2001). After clerking, Judge Reyes became a litigation attorney at Williams & Connolly LLP, where she spent her legal career from 2001 to 2023. During her time at the firm, she served as the co-chair of the firm’s International Disputes practice group and on its Executive Committee. Her practice focused on international litigation, representing foreign governments, foreign government officials, and multinational companies. Judge Reyes also worked on patent, legal malpractice, and other complex civil litigation matters. For her pro bono work, she devoted substantial time to assisting refugees and organizations that assist refugees in obtaining asylum.
