I have worked to build a successful family law practice over the past 20 years based on my deep belief in the importance of resolving a divorce in the most amicable and cost-effective manner possible.
I take my commitment to delivering peace of mind seriously. With an open communication approach to client relations, I am always available to answer your questions, even on nights and weekends, and I will keep you up-to-date with the latest developments in your case.
During the divorce process, I advocate for you every step of the way. I am a zealous litigator and use my deep knowledge of divorce and family law to represent your interests in the most favorable manner.
My deep business background uniquely equips me to handle financial-driven aspects of a case, including child support, alimony, and division of property. I hold an undergraduate degree in Economics and Finance and a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA). I also have experience as a real estate investor and small business owner. If your situation involves small businesses, real estate, stock options and/or profit sharing plans, I can help.
Additionally, I am certified in divorce and marital property mediation and I am trained in child custody mediation, with experience in cases that involve special needs children.
I am licensed to practice law in both Maryland and Washington, DC.
