My experience and background reflect the hallmarks of success one must demand of a lawyer in the metropolitan area’s legal landscape. As a native of Northern Virginia, I have here focused my practice on providing sound and balanced representation to clients navigating the difficult legal waters of family (including contested divorce, custody, support, equitable distribution and estate planning), real estate (including litigation, document review/drafting, landlord/tenant, contractor disputes and settlements) and commercial law (litigation/corporate defense, structural/formational review and collections). My persuasive style has been well received in courtrooms throughout Virginia and Maryland, sustained and continually nuanced by a body of experience sufficient to deliver sophisticated results for my clients.
My formal education includes a B.A. from Hampden-Sydney College with honors in both Philosophy and Religion (1999), induction into Pi Sigma Alpha and Theta Alpha Kappa Honor Fraternities, and the Union Philanthropic Literary and Debate Society. I completed my J.D. from George Mason School of Law with a focus on litigation (2004). This academic background facilitates my forging channels of communication that bridge cultural, economic and social divides, allowing for thoughtful position development and, when coupled with my substantial trial experience, affords clients innovative and creative settlement opportunities.
My professional experience includes practicing alongside the partners of several of Northern Virginia’s most prestigious boutique firms and serving as a clerk for the judges of the U.S. Tax Court. My achievements have been recognized by my inclusion in Marquis, Cambridge and Strathmore’s Who’s Who in American Law. My practice has also enjoyed steady growth through relationships developed during my involvement with the American, Virginia, Maryland and Fairfax Bar Associations, Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Virginia Trial Lawyers Association and American Land Title Association. I am also the owner and author of a Virginia family law blog posted at www.familylawva.com and www.virginia-divorce-law.com.
