Traffic Law

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.

Criminal Law

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.

‚Äč

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. 

Business Law

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. 

Immigration Law

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. 

PERSONAL INJURY

So let me understand this.... Someone else does something wrong and because of that, you or your loved ones, are hurt; emotionally, physically, mentally, and financially.  Then they say they don't want to compensate you?  Something about this just doesn't seem fair.  That's why I usually begin my negotiations with asking the negligent party to explain to me what would they want if they were my client.
