I am a native of Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and have focused my legal profession in the area of family law. After law school, I began working with law firms as an associate attorney focusing mainly on family law cases. I have successfully negotiated and resolved numerous divorce and custody cases, and I have tried numerous contested divorce cases and contested custody cases across the State of Maryland, with my primary practice in Anne Arundel County. Not only have I represented parties in divorce and custody actions, I have also been appointed by the Court as a best interests attorney for children. Additionally, I volunteer some of my time at the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County as a facilitator to help mediate cases at Scheduling Conferences.
In recognition of my standing in the legal community, I have been designated as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers and Baltimore magazines for the past three years.
