I represent businesses and individuals in commercial, bankruptcy, employment and insurance disputes. In 2010, I was named one of the state's 50 Leading Women by the Maryland Daily Record.
I am a Past President of Maryland Defense Counsel, Inc. and the Baltimore Women's Bar Association. I serve on the board of the Women's Bar Association of Maryland and am the co-chair of its statewide Judicial Selections Committee. Additionally, I am a peer review panel attorney for the Attorney Grievance Commission of Maryland, and I have been named a Maryland Super Lawyers Rising Star by Baltimore Magazine.
My experience includes the trial of complex insurance coverage declaratory judgment and bad faith actions; the successful defense of a sprinkler company in suit concerning the destruction by fire of a building under construction; and the successful defense, in trial and on appeal, of malpractice lawsuits dealing with tax, medical and accounting issues. I have defended real estate agents and brokers in actions alleging breach of contract, fraud and other claims in connection with the sale of property.
