About me


I am a trial attorney with over 18 years of legal experience.  My primary practice areas include family law, criminal defense, drunk driving, general litigation, and personal injury cases.


I practice in courtrooms throughout Southern Maryland, including Calvert, St. Mary's, Charles, Prince George's, and Anne Arundel Counties.  I also handle criminal and drunk driving cases throughout the State.


I am a zealous advocate for my clients.  Preparation and blunt advice are the hallmarks of my practice.

    I've known Mark for 13 years now and he is a great attorney in Calvert. I've referred him a number of cases in that time and have only heard great things about Mark from those clients. Mark also has a great reputation in the legal community for his knowledge of the law and the tenacity in which he represents his clients.
