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.

A consultation will on average take about 30-45 minutes.
Credit Cards Accepted
I accept all major credit cards (ie. visa, mastercard, etc.)
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. Can a landlord charge me for rent for a lease that isn’t renewed?
- A: If the lease isn't renewed, it will generally divert directly into a month-to-month lease. Provided your landlord is properly licensed and you are still living in the property, then yes, the Landlord can charge you rent.
- Q. I am a tenant and signed a lease with a married couple, lease is signed by both the husband and wife jointly. SDAT shows
- A: I would need more information to answer this fully. You mentioned that there is a automatic renewal clause in the lease that you initialed. Did that automatic renewal clause state that the lease would be renewed automatically for an additional year unless either party takes an action? If so, arguably, that is enforceable. Any ambiguity in the lease would probably be in your favor. However, there are quite a few questions that would need to be answered. I would suggest you contact a knowledgeable attorney.
- Q. Is there a specific form to file a motion to vacate judgement in Maryland District Court?
- A: You would use a general motion form. You should include any information as to why you did not show up in court, as well as any defense that you might have raised in the contract claim (i.e you didn't owe the money, you paid it already, etc.)
