Allison Jones Rushing, a Williams & Connolly partner nominated to the Fourth Circuit, fended off questions about her relatively short time as a lawyer in a confirmation hearing Wednesday, after a Republican senator raised concerns over her “life experience.”

Rushing, if confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, would be among the youngest federal judges serving on the bench.
