About me

I live in Fairfax County with my wife and two daughters.  I am originally from St. Louis, where I was born and raised.  After attending Duke University, I moved to the DC area. I attended Georgetown Law School and then moved to Northern Virginia in 2009.  I am a big sports fan - baseball, football, and college basketball.

  • Bradley Rittenhouse Haywood

    I endorse this lawyer. Over a decade ago, Mr. Elders clerked at the Alexandria Public Defender while I was an attorney there, and we were colleagues between defenders' offices for several years afterwards before he struck out on his own. In his time as a public defender and in private practice, he has distinguished himself as one of the brightest, most savvy and dedicated attorneys in Fairfax, so much so that he's now my go-to guy for advice about Fairfax County criminal defense practice. He believes deeply in the cause of the defense, and is committed to you -- the client -- first and foremost. I recommend him highly.
