About me

Before and while I was in law school, I served as Director of Research for the Legislature of Michigan's Washington, D.C. office, coordinating federal/state legislation between the Michigan Congressional delegation and the Michigan legislature.


Upon graduating from law school, I worked as a staff attorney for the Rhode Island Supreme Court.  From 1981-1987, I was a prosecutor in the Fairfax County Commonwealth Attorney's Office.  I have been a criminal defense lawyer since 1987.


I currently serve as president of the Virginia Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys, and teach continuing legal education around the state for a number of associations and organizations.

  • Andaleeb Geloo Esq.

    This is unsolicited review of a colleague who is, in my opinion, one of the most brilliant, well read, hardworking, diligent, prepared, academic lawyers I know. She not only mentored me but numerous other attorneys coming out of law school and forward. I have seen her fight tooth and nail for her clients, passionately and intelligently and honestly. I am proud to have her as my outstanding colleague, mentor and friend. She raises the bar for excellence!
