The firm was established in 1985 and has focused on a wide range of issues as a general civil practice. We maintain a program called Lawyers for International Development, which specializes in international development.
Our firm represents businesses across a wide spectrum of issues, including business formation, general and government contracting, human resource development and regulatory compliance. We also represent individuals on issues related to estate planning: wills, health directives, trusts, etc. We have expertise in creating special needs trusts.
Our firm served as plaintiffs' counsel in a large civil rights lawsuit that requires the District of Columbia to provide appropriate services to children with special needs. In recent years, we also have represented individuals targeted by companies undertaking internet-based fraud and extortion. We have an active portfolio of cases involving government contracting, including debarment, contract disputes and regulatory compliance.

My over-arching goal is to provide quality and affordable services to clients on issues that are important to their everyday lives.
We believe that a client's best interest is served if he or she is as fully informed as possible about legal issues that affect his or her life.
This is a standard practice in our firm.
We will coach clients informally on occasion.
I have been a practicing attorney since 1985.
I have traveled widely on business to some of the poorest parts of the world. The perspective gained through travel and working with people who lead lives that are far different, and in most cases much more difficult, provide me with the humility and empathy often required of lawyers in the United States.
We focus on creative problem-solving that is responsive and timely.Personal interests:
Reading, music, travel, and outdoor activities.
