I concentrate my practice in the areas of personal injury, civil rights, divorce, child custody, and labor and employment litigation. I have tried dozens of jury trials throughout Virginia and the District of Columbia, and have particular experience in cases of traumatic brain injury. I have been frequently retained, or consulted by other law firms, to assist in traumatic brain injury cases, and given speaking engagements on the topic. I have spoken and authored articles on various areas of the law, and appeared as a legal analyst on television.
Before coming to Richmond, I was honored to serve for two years as an Assistant Attorney General for the District of Columbia as one of the city’s first Honors Program litigators. In that capacity, I defended the District of Columbia and various government officials, including Mayor Anthony Williams and Chief of Police Charles Ramsey, in civil rights, habeas corpus, tort, and labor and employment matters.
I earned my undergraduate degree in business from the College of William and Mary, and graduated cum laude from the George Mason University School of Law. While in law school, I was Managing Editor of the George Mason Law Review, and worked as a summer associate and third-year law clerk for the Washington, D.C. boutique firm of Stein, Mitchell & Mezines. After law school, I clerked for Judge John H. Bayly, Jr. of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. As a law clerk, I worked with all three major divisions of the Superior Court: Family, Civil, and Criminal.
I'm a native of Vienna, Virginia. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, following current events, and watching sports, especially the Washington Redskins.
