Summary

I am a tenacious Roanoke lawyer who puts my clients' interests first. As a general practice attorney, I have extensive experience in many different areas of the law, including: business formation and corporate governance, general civil litigation, family law (divorce, support and custody), plaintiff's personal injury, GAO protests and federal procurement law, bankruptcy (Chapters 7 and 13), construction litigation, civil rights and s. 1983 cases, protective orders, and alternative dispute resolution. This broad experience allows me to bring a different perspective to bear in my practice. I have won jury and bench trials in Virginia, and have been victorious at the appellate level in both state and federal courts.

I also have a number of published opinions and notable cases under my belt, including:

Collins v. Solomon, 500 B.R. 747 (2013)
Wiencko v. Takayama, 62 Va. App. 217, 745 S.E.2d 169 (2013)
