Biography

I am a Personal Injury Attorney, a Workers' Compensation Lawyer and a Criminal Defense Counselor. Over the course of 20 plus years, I have handled thousands of cases involving accidental injury including hundreds of car accident cases in which my clients have sustained serious personal injury, incurred huge medical bills and lost wages, and were caused to suffer from pain and endure mental anguish. I proudly handle cases throughout Maryland, focusing in Baltimore, Baltimore County, Towson, Essex, Dundalk, Middle River, Parkville, Owings Mills, Randalstown, Pikesville, Ellicot, Anne Arundel County, Glen Burnie, Annapolis, Howard County, or Columbia, Ellicot CIty, Maryland. I've secured millions of dollars in compensation for victims of the negligence. I've helped hundreds of injured workers and obtained benefits to which they were rightfully entitled, but wrongfully denied. I've defended hundreds of people accused of crimes. I've tried hundreds of cases. I'd suggest that you let me put this background and experience to work on your case. Why should you hire me? I'd offer two simple reasons why I believe someone should choose me over another lawyer: My experience and My Reduced Fee Program. I've detailed my background above. I also offer my Maryland personal injury clients a reduced fee program that features an attorney fee lower than that commonly charged by personal injury attorneys in this area. I have always believed that every accident and injury victim should have access to the services of a dedicated advocate at a fair rate. My reduced fee program gives my clients the ability to keep a greater percentage of their overall award in their pocket.

Fees
  • Free Consultation
    I extend a complimentary case evaluation, legal analysis and strategy planning session to anyone that is considering hiring me as their lawyer. In this initial meeting, I have three aims: To explore, develop and organize the operative facts surrounding the case, claim or defense To identify and analyze the legal issues involved, and To develop a plan to achieve the client's objectives. A fourth aim is to extend this service to the prospective client at no cost.
  • Contingent Fees
    I adamantly believe every injury victim should have access to diligent, effective representation in their quest to achieve fair compensation. I am also committed to providing that representation at a fair rate. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions about my reduced fee program. Usually, the lawyer will advance the costs of litigation, and, if there is a financial recovery, the lawyer will retain a percentage of that recovery as their fee. However, if there is no recovery obtained by the lawyer, there is no fee -and generally, no litigation costs- charged to the client. "Under my Reduced Fee Program, your fee percentage is always limited." In Maryland, a common contingency fee arrangement calls for the lawyer to retain 33.3 % of the amount recovered in the case as a fee. Under my reduced fee reduced fee program, attorney's fees are always limited to 30% on a presuit recovery, and 35% if the case goes to litigation.

Legal Answers
Q. What to do if suspected drugs that was found on person wasn’t tests at the spot or in a lab
A: If the State cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt the seized item was a controlled dangerous substance [CDS] they cannot convict. Seized items are rarely, if ever, tested on at the scene, and typically sent out to a lab, or tested internally, depending on the size of the jurisdiction.
Q. Was making a u turn in a 35 mile an hour zone in a residential are, another driver was going well above the speed limit
A: Anytime a fact pattern is presented that includes someone making a U-turn- there's a substantial possibility that they minimally contributed to the accident. If you wish to contest decisions that might have gone against you you should consult with a lawyer in a confidential setting.
Q. If you have a bench warrant will you for failure to appear in court..
A: If there is a warrant for your arrest, I do not think that your application for the public defender will make any difference to arresting officers. If the PD obtains an order recalling the warrant for you, you should keep a copy of that order, and show that to any arresting officers.
