About Me

I'm a plaintiffs trial lawyer practicing in Washington, DC, Maryland, and West Virginia and am very proud to have the opportunity to represent individuals who have been harmed through no fault of their own.


 


I'm an avid Georgetown Hoyas basketball fan and a Washington football fan.  My baseball loyalties lie with the Washington Nationals.


 


Beyond fighting for my clients in the courtroom, I fight to keep the court house doors open through my involvment on the Boards of the American Association for Justice and the Public Justice Foundation, as well as my service as Vice President of the Trial Lawyers Association of Metropolitan Washington, DC.


 


But the most exciting thing in my life right now is my upcoming wedding in October. I am very much looking forward to marrying my perfect partner, Tracee.
