Taking a Stand for Justice

When I was in high school, I came to the conclusion that the law is my calling. At that impressionable age, it wasn’t hard for me to see that the world was full of injustice. I saw the infraction of rights in the public eye turn into larger violations of well-being — or even transgressions of human rights that today become national spectacles — and knew there was something to be done.

Since the early days, I’ve been driven to do my part standing up for justice. After getting both my B.A. and J.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I set my sights on practicing and continually learning about criminal law. I wanted to make as much of a difference as possible protecting the freedoms of people whose rights had been disregarded.

Expansion Leads to Greater Opportunities and Deeper Satisfaction

Soon enough, I had the ability to expand my practice. I learned extensively about family law and started helping clients going through particularly difficult transitions such as divorce and child custody agreements. I guided them through the legal process, which demanded our time together deciding on options, talking about the best future for their families, and sharing wisdom that would help preserve everyone’s happiness.

The future’s uncertain; it takes strength and support to get through those hard times. Well, I like providing that support. I like making that difference.


It became plain that not only was I helping my clients settle on their most agreeable outcome, but I was also making sure they felt looked after. Seeing their lives transform inspired me; I expanded my practice further to include business and civil law — defending the rights to which we are entitled as American citizens.

Prominent Legal Service Throughout Maryland

Running my practice here in Rockville, Maryland has been and continues to be the most rewarding experience of my life. I’ve met and fostered professional relationships that have turned into valuable friendships, and those friendships have fed the word-of-mouth about my practice. I’ve been extremely grateful to see my reputation in Maryland grow to prominence, especially in my practice areas. In 2013 and 2014, the National Trial Lawyers named me one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers, and I’ve been rated 10 out of 10 on Avvo.

Usually, when clients come to me I can tell they’re afraid of what’s to come, and I understand — the future is uncertain; it’s terrifying. If you’re going through a family dispute, if you’ve been charged with a crime or if you’re dealing with a business or civil law matter, it’s my priority to do everything in my power to make sure you get through the process as smoothly as possible.
