Biography

I am 100% committed to my clients. I give my clients personal attention and have done so for more than 42 years in Virginia and Maryland. As an attorney in a well established Alexandria City law firm, I provide my clients with legal services and skills at a high quality level and at reasonable hourly rates in Northern Virginia, including Fairfax County. I work with individuals, as well as small and large businesses, which are foreign and domestic. I handle mostly residential and commercial landlord-tenant disputes and leases. However, I advise clients who are consumers and professionals on a range of issues, specifically, fair business practices, business contract disputes, landlord and tenant law, residential real estate matters, loan documentation, commercial leases, business acquisitions, estate planning and serving as general civil litigation counsel. I have an AV rating with Martindale-Hubbell that is the highest rating regarding competence and ethics for lawyers. I accept cases on an hourly billing basis. I do not take cases on a contingency fee basis. I served in the U.S. Marine Corps and am happy to provide professional legal advice to all current and retired military personnel in the metropolitan Washington, DC region. I am currently accepting new clients so give me a call to discuss the matter that has you concerned and how I can be of service. Please see the fields of law in which I practice. If my practice areas do not fit your needs, one of my 10 other attorneys will most likely be able to advise you. Call me today to discuss the problem that you face and to set up an office appointment so I can help you construct a resolution in your favor. You need to take the first step. Call me today at 703-684-2000.

Legal Answers
Q. Im going to be homeless because people will not leave my mobile home for me to live there.
A: You can file an Unlawful Detainer in Court and ask the Judge for an award of the rent arrearage and for possession. You may have to wait, however, to evict them, if they do not voluntarily move out, as a result of the CDC moratorium on evictions.
Q. Hi, Homeowner here. I rented a room with a lease that states it's a 3 month minimum/based month to month/share space.
A: In Virginia ,the police will not get involved with a civil dispute between the landlord and the tenant. Also in Virginia, you have the right to file an Unlawful Detainer action in the General District Court in the city/county in which the premises is located and seek an order for possession. The problem that you will face after you get the order entered by a Judge is that there is a moratorium based on the CDC guidelines that no evictions are permitted until the end of September 2021. You may want to Google evictions at the CDC website to get all the details.
Q. Is it a crime to deposit/cash a check if it is to 2 named people, he signed the back twice and she didn’t sign
A: I regret that I do not handle criminal law matters. Sorry.
