About Me

I settled in Northern Virginia in 2005. I have lived in Arlington and Alexandria and represented clients as an attorney in Arlington, Alexandria, Fairfax, Fredericksburg, Falls Church, Loudoun, Prince William County, Spotsylvania, and Vienna. I love Northern Virginia and think of myself as an adoptive Virginian.


I graduated from the College of William and Mary and then attended George Mason School of Law. At George Mason, I managed my school’s Moot Court program, taught writing for a year as a writing fellow, and served as Secretary of the Student Bar Association and co-Editor-in-Chief of our school newspaper. I also was a member of the Federal Circuit Bar Journal.


After passing the Virginia Bar, I worked for the Prince William County Circuit Court as law clerk for Judge Craig D. Johnston. After that, I spent two years at the Prince William County firm of Zelnick & Erickson, P.C. practicing civil and criminal litigation.

I am licensed to practice law in Virginia and admitted before the Eastern District of Virginia. I run a high-tech paperless office and utilize all forms of communication. I take pride in the fact that my clients are able to reach me at any time of day, whether by phone, text, email, Facebook, or Twitter.
