About me

 I try cases in Maryland State and Federal Courts. I am retained by individuals seeking substantial monetary compensation as well as by corporate clients who demand a results-driven litigator.

 I am certified by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy to teach advocacy skills and have mentored attorneys from all over the country on the science and art of trying a civil case to a jury.   I currently offer continuing legal education programs and trial skills workshops through the Litigation Section of the Maryland State Bar Association and lectures through the National Business Institute.  I am the co-recipient of the 2013 MSBA Litigation Section Chair's Award for Exceptional Service.

 I volunteer as a pro bono advocate for Maryland crime victims and am a 2011 recipient of the Governor's Victim Assistance Award. I serve as a privately retained arbitrator and as a court-appointed Mediator in the District Courts of Maryland. I am also active as legal counsel to homeowners associations, condominiums, housing cooperatives and local community foundations.
