Personal Experience & Biography

Caitlin Contestable advises political action committees, candidates, non-profits, and political vendors on navigating the legal intricacies of complying with federal campaign finance regulations and reporting requirements.  Caitlin has prepared and participated in Advisory Opinion Requests, litigation brought against the FEC, and represented clients facing enforcement matters for alleged campaign finance violations.  She also oversees clients’ FEC reporting processes by regularly reviewing contributions, expenditures, and managing reporting procedures to ensure clients file required reports accurately and on time.

Caitlin also routinely works with clients who wish to use the latest texting technologies to communicate with their target audience.  Texting can be covered by both state and federal laws, including the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and a failure to abide by the requirements can have catastrophic financial consequences if the texting campaigns are not executed in a compliant manner.  Caitlin also works to ensure clients are aware of the ever-evolving landscape of privacy and data protection laws that could be implicated by their activities.  From the initial vendor process review, contract negotiations, and ultimate text deployment, Caitlin works to ensure the firm’s clients are carefully guided through the nuances of the law and are able to execute successful and effective text message campaigns with their target audience.  

Caitlin received her B.A., cum laude, from the University of Florida, where she double majored in English and Criminology.  She received her Juris Doctor from Stetson University, College of Law and is a member of the Maryland Bar.
