About Me

Sharon is a passionate and forceful legal representative for individuals with disabilities as well as for those organizations that support people with disabilities. Sharon aggressively advocates for special education and support services for children and their families and for developmental and mental health services for adults. Sharon is also a kind and gentle advocate for seniors and their families.  She serves as counsel or in an advisory capacity to disability advocacy organizations throughout the State of Maryland and is often asked to speak at annual conferences and training programs.


 


Sharon is equally passionate and forceful in her representation of non-profit and for-profit entities that provide supports and services to individuals with disabilities and the elderly, whether serving as a proactive general counsel or as an aggressive advocate for her corporate clients. In her representation of community-based mental health and addiction service providers, organizations that provide housing and support services to individuals with developmental disabilities, senior care providers (including nursing homes and assisted living), and providers of personal home care and durable medical equipment, Sharon understands and appreciates the difficult balance her clients must achieve as business entities and service providers.


 


As a former Assistant Attorney General for the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Sharon has built the knowledge, experience and relationships with regulators that allow her to counsel and defend health care providers effectively in actions involving licensure and regulatory compliance. She also uses this experience to represent individual health care practitioners before professional disciplinary boards and to represent parents who find themselves the subject of abuse and neglect accusations by local departments of social services.


 


Sharon is a member of Network 2000, an organization that promotes the placement of women on corporate boards and in executive suites and educates the public on the benefits of having women in decision-making positions. In addition, members serve as role models and mentors to mid-level professional women seeking to achieve their full professional potential. Members must be sponsored and accepted in order to join.
