I provide guidance and leadership to my clients the following areas of Disability Benefits: federal employee and postal worker claims for disability retirement annuities, long term disability and short term disability insurance claims, including ERISA litigation, and Maryland state disability retirement claims.

 

I believe that combining legal expertise with strategic creative thinking is the best way to help my clients. I strive to do everything possible to provide assistance to my clients when they need it most. One of the most challenging times in our lives is when an injury or illness makes working impossible. When this happens, it is easy to lose hope, as our ability to work is so intimately tied to our own self-worth. My goal is to fight for and obtain disability benefits for those who are sick or injured, providing the stability necessary to get their life back.

 

I was raised in Montgomery County, Maryland, and graduated from Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Wheaton, Maryland. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts from Villanova University and attending The Columbus School of Law, at the Catholic University of America.
