We help clients navigate the most important decisions in their business and career.


Employment disputes.

We counsel employees regarding wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation, wage issues, and other employment-related disputes.  If we cannot resolve your dispute informally, we aggressively advocate on your behalf in state or federal court, arbitration, or mediation.

Employment transition.

We help employees, including executives, transition between career opportunities.  We negotiate separation, release, and new employment agreements, and help you understand non-compete and other restrictive covenants – so you can protect your career and your future.

Protecting business rights.

We defend responsible employers against workplace claims.  More importantly, we help put the right contracts and culture in place to minimize the risk of disputes.  We also prosecute your rights against people and businesses that violate their obligations to you.

Growing Entrepreneurs.

Our ultimate goal is to help you grow and succeed. We offer a trained eye for your documents, and trusted counsel on the legal aspects of your business.  Together, we can strategize on your critical decisions, so you can reach your potential.  Our greatest reward is being your “partner in law.”

Your facts and your goals drive everything.



First, we discuss the facts of your situation.  Understanding what happened, and when, is critical to evaluating your case and constructing a strategy.

Call us at (703) 988-1460, or schedule an initial consultation.


Next, we design a strategy.  For disputes, we identify your legal claims and defenses, and often prepare a demand letter or response.  For contracts, we improve existing documents and draft new materials you may need.  For business planning, we evaluate short- and long-term goals, and how to reach them.


With a strategy in place, we move forward – with litigation, contract work, or legal counsel on business and growth.  We can also help you navigate the other issues a growing entrepreneur must consider, such as  intellectual property, estate planning, commercial real estate, exit planning, and more.


The experience to address your disputes, your documents, and your growth.

Know Your Options

I have 20 years of litigation experience. So, I know how to identity your options and choose the right strategy.  I work with clients to find ways to resolve disputes amicably, with as little cost and disruption as possible.  Sometimes that means informal negotiations, mediation, or arbitration.

Move Forward With Authority

When formal proceedings are necessary, I represent my clients with commitment and passion. I have prosecuted claims for individuals and businesses in state and federal courts, and arbitration. I have also defended challenges to corporate and individual conduct.


I help employees, including executives, with important career choices.  I guide them through separation agreements and releases, non-competes, non-solicitations and other restrictive covenants.  If you are transitioning employment, I can help you protect your rights and your future.


I work with new and established businesses on their short- and long-term goals.  I help with corporate formation and organization, as well as company growth and the resulting array of contracts.  I also work with clients to build the professional team members they need to service such growth.
