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
Q. Hi, the previous tenant of my apartment entered my home two nights ago while I was sleeping. I live in Maryland.
A: You should contact the Landlord and demand the locks be changed.
Q. I am a Maryland landlord and wish to sell my rental property. Our tenant is month to month. Can we sell during pandemic?
A: That sounds very frustrating. So, provided the 30 day letter was done properly, you would need to file a Tenant Holding Over action with the District Court. This will start the process for eviction. Unfortunately, the Courts are in Phase 2 so there is no guarantee when the courts will hear it. You will also probably want to file suit against the Tenant for the unpaid rent balance. Lastly, you may want to consider offering a lower price in exchange for this being the new owners problem. Good luck!
Q. Tenant is month to month and we are selling our house. We sent certified letter to vacate.
A: At the moment, there is no law in effect that would stop you from giving 30 days notice. CARES coverage expired a while back for these types of cases. You will likely have no choice but to go through the Courts. Unfortunately, that is the only legal way to get rid of a tenant who refuses to leave. Best, -Leonard
