I am dedicated to my clients.  I have served clients in courts throughout Virginia; from Winchester to Arlington, from Newport News to Fairfax.  I have litigated cases in both federal and state courts.  My practice areas include personal injury, civil rights, car accidents, slip and fall, business disputes, contract formation, transactions, and consultation.  

But I provide so much more than paperwork to my clients.  

In 2001 to 2005, I served in the United States Army.  After I exited the service, I attended Wayne State University and earned two Bachelors of Arts, one in Political Science and another in Philosophy.  I then graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and was admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia in 2013.  

In the past I have volunteered to assist veterans with their disability claims and appeals, and I assisted the ill and elderly with wills, trusts, and advanced medical directives.  

Presently, my primary focus is on litigation and making complex legal problems seem simple and painless for my clients.
