About me

My family migrated to United States while I was very young. As a young immigrant I was accused of a crime that I did not commit. I was arrested, handcuffed, and questioned. I understand the burden of being charged with a crime. I have been a defendant and a client myself. I know how it feels when your constitutional rights are violated. I know what it means to be innocent and yet accused of doing something wrong. I know what it means when the Judicial System seems to be deaf and blind.

Also growing up in an immigrant family has help me understand that an Immigration status is not just a status; it is a change in a family's life.

Prior to becoming an attorney I managed a company with an annual budget of over 25 million dollars and 300 employees. For 15 years I hired attorneys who represented our business in various disputes. I know how it feels to rely on your attorney to protect the business that you worked so hard to build.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from James Madison University and graduated Summa Cum Laude. I earned my Juris Doctoral degree among the top tier of my class from Howard University School of Law.

I am a member of Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity, Beta Gamma Sigma business fraternity, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, The american Association for Justice, american Immigration Lawyers Association, Fairfax Bar Association, Northern Virginia Black Lawyers Association, and several other organizations. I was selected and enlisted as an Attorney in 2009 edition of Who's Who in Black Washington D.C. I also served on the board of directors of D.C. Police Foundation. I am barred in D.C. and Virginia.
