About Me

I have been practicing law for forty years. After serving as a clerk to Judge Alexander Harvey, II in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, I joined the law firm of Smith, Somerville & Case where I litigated all manner of cases for corporate, insurance and individual clients, for almost thirty years. In 1997, I joined Hodes, Pessin & Katz where I have continued my litigation practice.
