About me

I practice in the areas of business, personal injury and criminal law.  I started my career in Southern Maryland clerking for the Honorable Steven G. Chappelle in the Circuit Court for Charles County.  After my clerkship I entered private practice representing the interests of insurance companies and large corporations in jurisdictions throughout Maryland and the Distict of Columbia and I have served as counsel to two federal agencies.  After eight years I returned to Southern Maryland to live and work and I have maintained a practice in Main Street in Prince Frederick, Maryland since 2002.
