BREIF STATEMENT ON WHAT WE DO
Many people who are unfamiliar with the legal system are surprised by how quickly a driving offense can result in significant issues to their daily lives. The failure to consult with an experienced attorney can result in people finding themselves owing thousands of dollars, warrants for their arrest, jail time, and the suspension of driving privileges for indefinite periods of time.
My job is to defend you against the harshest of charges regardless of what has happened. You deserve to have someone you trust on your side. I continually work to ensure that your rights are upheld and your dignity remains intact.
This is the number one area of my focus in practice of law. This is the number one reason why I became a lawyer. This is where more than any other area I must realize that my client has trusted me with his/her life in my hand and I MUST do all that I can do to bring credit to that decision.
Although most of my practice in this area focuses on representing licensees and license applicants before the District of Columbia Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Board and Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR), I have assisted with “start to finish” legal representation of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and other types of businesses. Included in my range of services are assistance with the business acquisition, entity formation and organization, leasing, business licensing and permitting and litigation needs of our clients.
Given the climate of Immigration laws and enforcement post Trump Administration, our focus of practice in this area of law has been to inside the U.S. cases such as Citizenship, Green card through marriage, Asylum, withholding, and CAT.
Most people have a general practitioner doctor who is called their primary care physician. This should be true for your legal needs as well. Day to day many run into legal questions. They either have to try to figure it out themselves or they seek the attention of a professional. I have several families who I act as their family attorney. Issues that can be solved in-house we will deal with together. Issues that needs the attention of a specialist, then I refer them to the attorneys who are focused primarily on the issue at hand while having that attorney report to me so that I can monitor and explain all to the family. This ensures that the family is being taken care of without being over charged and more importantly the family has me to ensure the legal mambo jumbo presented to them is simplified and analyzed so that they can make the best informed decision.
