In the several decades I have practiced, I have handled many different types of cases, including personal injury, land use, zoning, criminal, Wills and Estates, real estate contracts and debt resolution.

I have appeared before the Circuit and District Courts, Administrative Law Judges, Orphans Courts (Wills and Estates), Workmen's Compensation Commissions, and other administrative bodies.

I believe my diverse background has greatly aided me in many ways because of the interaction of these areas of law.

I am constantly evolving, furthering my knowledge, writing skills and refining how I practice law.

I have forged many relationships with the Courts and other agencies I practice in. Both my academic skills and practical experience are brought to bear in every case in which I am involved, all to the benefit of my clients.

In addition to extensive trial work in most jurisdictions, Circuit Court and District Court, I have extensive experience with appeal litigation. I have a number of reported decisions (a reported decision is usually done when an unclear point of law needs to be clarified or resolved). I have personally been before the Court of Appeals (the highest court in the State) on the following:

  • Koshko v. Haining, 398 Md. 404 (2007) (Establishing parameters for grandparent visitation)
  • Shanks v. Lowe, 364 Md. 538 (2001) (Establishing that food servers can be garnished)
  • Bank of America v. Schultz, 413 Md. 15 (2010) (Establishing the need for expert testimony in lawsuits with Banks)

I have also been involved in numerous cases before the Court of Special Appeals, Intermediate Appellate Courts and other cases before the United States Court of Appeals (4th Circuit ) in Richmond, Virginia.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
