About Me

I am a diehard bicycle commuter, making the 6-mile trek each way on the streets of Maryland and DC daily.  I've been commuting by bike for the past 10 years, rain or shine.  Not only does this keep me in semi-decent shape, it really gives me a good perspective for the bicycle accident cases we handle in DC, Maryland and Virginia.  I hope you will visit our website - - and check out the bicycle riders FAQs we put together.  You'll also find the local laws (DC, MD & VA) relating to cycling.  Be safe!
