When I founded our firm in 1986, it was my goal to create a litigation practice that provides personalized service to individuals, families and small businesses in distress. For nearly three decades, I have remained true to this goal, developing a culture of genuine concern and commitment to our clients, the legal community of Northern Virginia and the greater Northern Virginia community.
From July 1, 2012-June 30, 2013, I served as President of the Fairfax Bar Association (FBA). During this time, I initiated a task force that successfully funded badly needed judgeship positions, and completed the formation of a mentorship program for new attorneys. I currently serve as a member of the FBA Executive Committee and as the FBA representative to the Fairfax County Domestic Violence Prevention, Policy and Coordinating Council.
I am particularly proud to have been selected as one of 30 honorees named to the “Leaders in the Law-Class of 2013” by the Virginia Lawyers Weekly for outstanding contributions to the justice system in Virginia. I am also proud to have been named as one of 38 attorneys inducted into the Virginia Law Fellows, Class of 2014, and honor “conferred on Virginia lawyers of integrity and character who are outstanding in their profession and in their communities.” The Fellows represent the top 1 percent of lawyers and retired judges in the Commonwealth.
