Biography

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.

Legal Answers
97 Questions Answered
Q. How can I get not paid rent from a tenant after eviction?
A: You will need to file suit against the Tenant to collect the amounts owed.
Q. my lease expired April of 2023 and my landlord failed to give me a new lease to sign, do I technically owe 60 day notice
A: A lot will depend on what type of notice requirement your prior lease imposed. If, for instance, it requires 60 days notice to terminate by the Tenant as well, then yes, you would have to give 60 days notice.
Q. Can the court kick me out because I've been filed on for eviction more than once?
A: That would depend. If this is a failure to pay rent situation and your Landlord has gotten 3 judgments against you in the last 12 months, then the Landlord can request that the right of redemption be extinguished, at which point, yes, it wouldn't matter if you paid the outstanding amounts. Has your Landlord received 3 or more judgments in the last 12 months?
