I have over 20 years of legal and business experience. I've handled all types of criminal and civil matters, including over 8 years working in criminal prosecution, handling bench and jury trials. I've argued over 100 cases in the Ohio Supreme Court and Maryland Court of Appeals. I'll take the time to research your situation completely and bring about the most effective legal representation I can whether your case involves litigation or transactional work. In addition, I've run two successful small businesses and understand the needs of a small business owner and his or her employees.
I graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis with a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1987. I then served on active duty as a Marine Officer, which included leading a platoon of Marines in combat in Kuwait during Desert Storm. In 1992, I transitioned to the Marine Corps Reserve, retiring from the Corps in 2007 as a lieutenant colonel.
