Call me now – even evenings or weekends.
I'll listen and help.
Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. There are many attorneys and you honor me by considering me to represent you.
Like many my age, I grew up watching Perry Mason on television. He was a lawyer who always won the case at the very end of the show with a “surprise” witness. From that show’s inspiration, we’d often have a trial in my house after dinners. Dad was always the judge and my sister was usually my witness. As far back as I can remember I wanted to be an attorney and fight for people.
Throughout my school years, I took on every argument and every debate. I read every book about great lawyers and famous trials I could find.
I began my practice of law in 1980 and have rejoiced every day since, because every day I get to help somebody. I passed the Bar exam and went into practice for myself, and I took on cases in many areas of law, including criminal, family law, bankruptcy, small business representation, real estate settlements, and more. After about five years, I slowly started focusing my practice in the area of personal injury law because with this focus I felt the most accomplishment for my clients.
Since the late-80’s, I have focused on personal injury work. All I do is represent people who have been injured, and the families of those who have lost a loved one. I’ve seen the devastation that an injury can bring to people, physically, emotionally, and financially. I’ve also seen what insurance companies do, and I detest that they act as if people are plastic or metal. They think that throwing a little bit of money should make things okay. Money cannot erase an injury or bring back a lost loved one. I thrive on making things as right as they can be (and as expensive as they can be for the insurance companies).
Except for my law school years, I have lived in the Washington, D.C. area my entire life. I am married and have four daughters.
