I have been a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) since 1986 and earned my law degree in 1989 from West Virginia University College of Law. In addition to West Virginia and Maryland, I am also licensed to practice law in Virginia, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia.

Your Local Attorney And Counselor

I grew up in this area, where my family operated a new and used car dealership for many years. After college and law school, I returned here to establish my own law practice. I value my reputation in the legal profession and in the local communities I serve, earned one client at a time and primarily through word of mouth.

As a solo attorney, "the buck stops here." You will meet with me personally at your initial consultation and I will handle every facet of your case myself, from drafting legal correspondence to advocating for you in a courtroom. I understand that pressing legal issues create questions and anxieties. I try to be accessible and responsive, returning phone calls and keeping my clients informed.

As both a lawyer and a CPA, I can address the financial aspects of your legal matter. Read more about my background and credentials.
