I am a lifelong resident of Montgomery County and in the course of my general practice I have helped people with problems of almost every type.  I am a former county prosecutor and former appeals court law clerk.  I have a strong background in all of the areas of law that make up a general practice and I am able to take almost any type of case to court if attempts to settle the problem fall short.  After years practicing with one partner, I am now with the full service law firm of Eastburn and Gray, where I have even greater resources and backup to handle any kind of legal issue.
