Attorney Profile

I have been representing injured people since 1980.  Prior to joining the firm,  I was a judicial law clerk to Judge William Stewart of the DC Superior Court and spent three years as an Assistant United States Attorney in the District of Columbia.  Since joining the firm,  I have represented hundreds of people injured on the job, in car/trucking accidents, in medical malpractice cases as well as people who were injured through exposure to asbestos materials.  I focus on each client as an individual who deserves quality legal representation, regardless whether the case is big or small.
