Summary

Everyone should be able to afford justice. As a teacher for disadvantaged teens in Baltimore, it was clear to me that the lack of affordable legal representation is a problem for so many who seek a fair outcome in court. Making sure that everyone’s rights are honored, regardless of income, has always been my goal as an attorney. Starting with my work as a law student with University of Maryland’s JustAdvice Clinic, to volunteering with Legal Aid, to fighting for the rights of victims as an attorney for the nonprofit, SALI (Sexual Assault Legal Institute), I have represented clients in a variety of legal matters. Divorce, custody, peace/protective orders, immigration, housing, crime victim representation, employment law, and Title IX cases, are just some of the areas where I have successfully stood for my clients in court.

Over the years, it became obvious to me that non-profits cannot possibly fill the growing need for attorneys for those whose income is above the income and case-type thresholds for “free” help. If you need a qualified, Maryland barred lawyer who will represent you at a price that the fancy, high-overhead firms can’t match, you are the person that I had in mind when I built this practice.

You don’t have to fight the system alone.

Fees
  • Free Consultation
    I provide a free legal consultation to all potential clients, regardless of whether they choose to retain me. The average consultation will go through your basic legal options and make recommendations regarding your case. No fee will EVER be charged to a potential client. A consultation will on average take about 30-45 minutes.
  • Credit Cards Accepted
    I accept all major credit cards (ie. visa, mastercard, etc.)
  • Contingent Fees
    On certain cases, I will accept a contingency fee structure wherein I only get paid if I collect money for you. In such cases, in exchange for my services, I get a percentage of the judgment collected. The fee varies from approximately 25-35%. To put that in perspective, for every $100 I collect, I receive between $25-$35.

Q. i gave my roommate my rent she didn’t pay she left the apartment now I got a eviction notice what can I do.
A: That is very frustrating. So, you have to pay the rent or risk getting evicted. What you can do is locate your former roommate and file suit against her for absconding with the rent. Hope that helps!
Q. The defendants in our case did not appear at the hearing but have now submitted intent to defend after. Is this allowed?
A: I've seen that happen before. Basically, if they get the Notice of Intention to Defend (NOID) in at just the right moment, the Court just decides to set a court date. As counsel states, you will want to get all your documents in order and may want to consider looking into consulting with an attorney, either to represent you or at least give you some idea of how to proceed. Best of luck!
Q. What happens to me since my landlord got his rental license suspended for a violation. I have 9 months left on my lease.
A: Nothing "happens" so to speak. If your Landlord (LL) is unlicensed, you still have to pay rent and are still a tenant. The major difference lies in what your LL can do to you if you don't pay rent. In PG, if the LL doesn't have the license, he/she cannot make use of the Failure to Pay Rent (FTPR) action. Other than that, everything remains the same. Hope that answers your question.
