About me

I have represented and advised homebuilders and land developers, both national and local, as well as other construction entities and professionals such as owners, contractors, architects, engineers and subcontractors, for most of mylegal career. While principally involved with civil litigation matters, my experience includes many and various issues related to the construction/homebuilding industry.  Among the many different types of builder/developer- and construction-related matters with which I have been involved, I have dealt with cases involving contract compliance/breach (including bulk/lot purchase agreement disputes, customer outsale contracts and contractor agreements), mechanic's lien, delay, defect, EIFS (synthetic stucco), mold, fraud and consumer protection. These cases have ranged in size and scope from post-closing customer warranty disputes to multi-million dollar disputes with condominium unit owners' associations. Outside of the litigation arena, I have also drafted, reviewed and negotiated contracts and consumer disclosure documents, and been engaged in various other forms of dispute avoidance avenues.  In addition to my client counsel and representation, I also volunteer my time acting as a conciliator for the Fairfax County Circuit Court, and working on projects for Habitat for Humanity.
