About Me

I am a dedicated personal injury attorney and
advocate for the rights of injury victims. I handle worker's compensation cases for clients who have been injured while working for their employer.


Before joining Alpert
Schreyer, LLC, I worked as an associate attorney in the
Washington D.C Metropolitan Area where I managed and negotiated
personal injury claims for over 200 clients throughout Maryland, the
District of Columbia and Virginia. Through my past legal endeavors and
accomplishments I have garnered extensive experience
assisting clients from injury to recovery.
