Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

Types of cases I handle: Longshore Workers' Compensation Claims, Virginia Workers' Compensation Claims, Social Security Disability Claims, Personal Injury Cases General, Civil Litigation, Drafting of Contracts Contract Based Claims. I am a lawyer and I handle the types of cases I handle because I like to help people. In workers' compensation, Social Security, and personal injury claims, I work on behalf of people who have sustained injuries or disabilities that severely impact their lives and well being. I work with them in an effort to maximize their recovery and help them move on with their lives in a positive direction. I find great satisfaction in winning and resolving cases on behalf of clients so they can do just that. In the context of contract based and general civil litigation cases, I am likewise working on behalf of clients to address difficult situations in their lives. I therefore seek the best result possible to protect each client's interests so those circumstances can be put behind them. Finally, on a more general level, I believe that our system of law, while not perfect, is a necessary instrument for protection of people in our society and our way of life, and a mechanism for positive change on behalf of people whose resources are limited. Through our system, and our system of representation within that system, if you are injured or otherwise wronged, you have a voice, and you can be heard. I enjoy working with and on behalf of people to make that happen.
