About Me

For over 25 years, I have helped individuals, families and small businesses navigate our civil justice system with a focus on achieving positive results for my clients through hard work, experience and attention to detail. I spend myself for my clients!!



I am proud to say that in 1989 I earned the AV-Peer Review rating from Martindale-Hubbell for the highest achievement in the areas of legal ability and ethical standards.



I also believe in giving back through community service. In 2008 and 2009, I served as National Board Chair for the nationwide American Lung Association. In 2009, Governor Martin O'Malley appointed me to a five year term on the Board of Trustees of the Community College of Baltimore County, the largest community college system in Maryland.
