I have been practicing law since 1993. I received my bachelor’s degree in General Studies from the University of Maryland, College Park, and then went on to earn my law degree from the University of Baltimore School of Law. I also attended the National Law Center at the George Washington University, in Washington, DC to study procurement law (Government Contracts). I was also selected to attend the United States Army Judge Advocate General’s School at the University of Virginia where I completed advanced legal training in Government Contracts Law.
As former Assistant District Counsel with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, I received 3 official Commendations from the Department of the Army for outstanding performance of my duties as an Assistant District Counsel.
I am admitted to practice law throughout the State of Maryland (1993) and Illinois (2013) as well as the following courts: the United States Supreme Court (2019), the U.S. District Court of Maryland (1994), the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit (2003), the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (1994) and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (2003), United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
I take my role as an attorney and counselor very seriously and believe that it is imperative that lawyers must hold themselves to a higher ethical standard and therefore I served on the Maryland Attorney Grievance Commission’s Peer Review Committee from 2008 – 2013 and 2018 to present.
