"My prime responsibility is providing my client with complete, honest and professional information so that the Client can make an intelligent decision about the future of their case".
I was born and raised in Norfolk and Virginia Beach and I have been a practicing attorney in Virginia for over 30 years. I currently live in Virginia Beach with my wife, Michelle and an adorable beagle named Eleanor Digby by the Beagles. My daughter is the manager of the restaurant and catering operations of Omar's Carriage House restaurant and catering in downtown Norfolk.
For many years my practice has involved representing injured persons, ranging from those hurt in automobile and motorcycle collisions to medical malpractice patients. Over those years, I have had the pleasure of helping thousands of people in getting their lives back, in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Hampton and Newport news, as well as Richmond, Chesterfield, Fairfax. Through my membership in the American Association for Justice, I have been able to help people a number of other states throughout the country.
I feel it is important to continue specialized education in trial skills practice, and I have completed multiple courses of the National College of Advocacy at Harvard University. I truly believe that this commitment gives me the ability and the confidence to prepare your case for a trial before a jury. "If a client's case cannot be resolved by settlement, under circumstances where the client receives full and fair compensation for his or her injuries, then a trial before a jury is where we go to achieve the fairness that the client deserves. So I take the position, at the beginning of the case, that it WILL be heard by a jury, and preparation for that trial begins on day one."
I received my law degree, a Juris Doctor, from the University of Baltimore School of Law in 1982, after having received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia in 1979. I am licensed to practice in all of the courts of Virginia, including the Supreme Court of Virginia, as well as the Federal Courts in the Eastern District of Virginia and Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. I have been a long standing member of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, the Trial Lawyer's For Public Justice, the Norfolk Portsmouth Bar Association and the American Association of Justice.
I ride a Harley-Davidson Street Glide and can be found on most weekends as a sponsor of motorcycle charitable events throughout Hampton Roads. I had the pleasure of leading the Boneshaker's Social Club as its President. BSSC is a charitable biker club that has raised over $150,000 for charitable causes over the past years. Our area is blessed with a large biker community, most all devoted to improving the lives of people in need. I have made many friends and met fascinating people over the years at biker events up and down the east coast.
Always a fan of a fine glass of wine and a great meal, I have spent a lot of time as a volunteer at many wine tasting events throughout the state. The Virginia wine industry is rapidly growing and I am trying to work my way through tastings at as many wineries throughout the state as I can. I have also had a great deal of fun as a member of the Pepper Lover's Club. This organization is comprised of people who love to cook and love spicy foods. We raise funds to benefit animal welfare causes, and are an annual sponsor of a booth at the Norfolk Bayou Boogaloo Festival in June.
It would be my privilege to help you regain control of your life, after someone else's actions have caused you harm.
