Experienced & successful real estate & business attorney. Free consultation.
I grew up in Virginia Beach and graduated from Kempsville High School. I attended Old Dominion University where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. From there I decided to stay at Old Dominion University and work on my Master's Degree in Urban Studies & Planning because I was interested in how government could make people's lives better through adaptive reuse and redevelopment.
Upon obtaining my Master's Degree in Urban Studies & Planning I went to work for the City of Williamsburg as a Zoning Officer and helped the city manage a huge growth in real estate development in the late 1990's.
I graduated from the University of Richmond, T.C. Williams School of Law in 2003. I then had the good fortune of obtaining a year-long Clerkship with the Judges in the Circuit Court of the City of Portsmouth. It was a great honor to work for such a great court and hard-working staff.
While working at the court I met many attorney's and members of the community and upon completion of my clerkship I entered private practice.
The primary focus of my practice has been on real estate and real estate finance issues connected to the financial collapse of mortgage banking industry. I began representing real estate investors and developers as the economy grew in the mid-2000’s. When the real estate bubble burst I helped those same individuals stabilize their real estate portfolios. Since mid-2009 my firm has been at the vanguard of developing the law in Virginia on Loan Modifications and Foreclosure Defense. I also handle a wide variety of civil matters including insurance matters, personal injury, wills and estates, business law and entity creation.
I believe in a fair and realistic outcome to most legal problems. You will always get the truth from me- I will not tell you want to hear to take your money.
I have two beautiful children, Truman and Pippa.
