For the last 20 plus years, I have been representing injured and disaffected individuals throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia and District of Columbia. My practice is solely dedicated to restoring the lives of those who have suffered severe personal injury or other harm as a result of another's negligence or unconstitutional conduct. Our firm's practice areas include tractor-trailer and motor vehicle collision litigation, brain injury litigation, wrongful death, personal injury, premises liability, sexual and elder abuse litigation, civil rights litigation including police and correctional misconduct, and professional malpractice.
