About Me

I thrive on developing innovative and strategic solutions that meet my clients’ needs and help them reach their individual and business goals. I evaluate clients’ legal problems from many angles, guiding them through short-term and long-term considerations that will capitalize on available resources.  I approach each matter with attention to detail and a thorough analysis of clients’ issues and objectives that allows me to focus on achieving their desired results. 


I concentrate my practice in the areas of business, employment, e-commerce, technology, real estate and civil litigation. My experience and depth of knowledge across a broad range of business-related legal matters includes commercial acquisitions, employment relations and disputes, as well as complex civil litigation. I have served as counsel to national corporations, handling matters such as computer software and systems agreements, licensing and multi-state litigation.


I frequently speak on business, employment and technology-related topics before business groups and associations throughout the region. I am also an avid sports fan and a member of the Maryland Soccer Foundation’s Board of Directors.

    I endorse Don Sperling and his firm without any reservations. I have know Don for more than 20 years and referred a number of people to him over that period when they were needed a top flight lawyer in Montgomery County, MD to handle real estate, estate planning, auto accident, criminal and corporate matters. He handled a minor real estate issue for me resulting in an excellent outcome. In addition, I've worked with Don as a fellow nonprofit board member and have been extremely impressed by his thoughtful approach to the various issues that come before the board..
