About me

I have lived in Maryland my entire adult life. I know the Courts, both State and Federal in this area. Additionally, having practiced in the same Capital city for 31 years I have come to know my fellow attorneys and can work well with the vast majority of them.


Interestingly, I was recently requested to be in a Movie being filmed in Flint Michigan about Carence Darrow and the Scopes Monkey trial. I was requested to be a "reporter" in the Courtroom and sit behind Brian Dennehey (Clarence Darrow). The producers thought having a REAL Darrow would add interest to the whole filming process. The experiance was wonderful.
