Litigation and Arbitration

I have devoted more than twenty years to developing trial practice skills in state and federal courts.  These skills not only benefit my clients when a dispute reaches trial, but also during the negotiation of settlement agreements, and throughout important dispute resolution activities such as depositions, mediation, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) meetings, and arbitration.

I represent clients before state and federal courts located in Maryland and the District of Columbia, as well as before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and federal boards of contract appeals.  I pursue cost-effective litigation strategies that are designed to achieve favorable results consistent with my clients’ objectives. I pride myself on being readily available to my clients, and in providing proactive advice designed to avoid litigation while vigorously safeguarding the legal rights of my clients.
