I am a native Washingtonian. I graduated from Thomas S. Wootton High School in Rockville; earned B.S. and B.A. degrees from the University of Maryland, College Park; and received my Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, from the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. I live in Oakton, Virginia and work out of the firm’s Alexandria and Reston offices. I am admitted to practice in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
I am a trial lawyer who represents corporations and individuals in complex commercial disputes, white collar criminal prosecutions and investigations, technology and media-related litigation (including intellectual property disputes); and corporate governance/shareholder actions. I have represented nearly every local television station and newspaper in courtroom access, defamation, or news-gathering tort matters. I have also represented numerous high-profile corporate clients and individuals, including a major party candidate running for President of the United States. I have tried cases in all of the local state and federal courts, as well as in federal and state courts across the country and in international arbitrations.
I am particularly experienced as both lead and local counsel in civil and criminal trials and litigation in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, also known as the “Rocket Docket.”
