In any legal matter, proper representation is crucial in achieving your desired outcome. We’ve helped hundreds of clients resolve their legal issues quickly and easily. Whether you are the victim of an auto accident, a parent working through divorce or custody proceedings, or are facing bankruptcy or criminal charges, we will put our years of experience to work for you.
If you have been injured due to another person’s actions or negligence, it’s more complicated than simply asking for compensation. Insurance companies exist to not pay you. You need a good lawyer to help you get the best deal possible. Experience makes a difference.
I got my first exposure to criminal work as a lawyer while in Law School, working for the Innocence Project, where I used DNA evidence to get innocent people out of jail. I’ve since represented hundreds of clients charged with DUI/DWI, domestic violence, burglary, assault, and other serious crimes. Sherwood Legal Services is ready to stand by your side in your moment of need. Don’t take chances with your criminal defense.
Mistakes happen, and filing for bankruptcy can often offer relief. Entering into bankruptcy should be done carefully, with the guidance of an experienced attorney. If you are considering bankruptcy, our free consultation can help you decide if bankruptcy is the right path for you. Let us help you find the reset button, and put you on the path to prosperity.
You can find that every detail of your life together is open to the scrutiny of the court. You need an attorney that will help you fight to keep what you have worked for. Your home, your retirement, your business, and every other asset you have worked for could be split up. You need someone that will fight for your assets as if they were their own.
Bringing the custody of children into this highly emotional situation adds to the stresses above. The court will be concerned with what is in the best interests of the child. The parent who can provide a stable, loving home for them during this time of crisis will win out. You also need an attorney that will help you find a path to being able to find common ground, so you can co-parent once again. This firm has helped many families during such difficult times.
I’ve bought houses, sold houses, brokered deals, and represented realtors before the Real Estate Board after deals went bad. Being the agent, the broker, the buyer, and the seller over the past decades gives me insight that other lawyers often lack.
Often Buyers need help dealing with “flippers” that cut too many corners. Sellers have to deal with buyers that fail to get a loan because they misled the parties. Landlords and Tenants often have rocky relationships. Rent needs to get paid and buildings need to be maintained. I’ve experienced both sides, and we have represented both landlords and tenants in numerous tenancy related actions. Evictions. Rent Escrows. Wrongful Detainers. My experience as a landlord and a tenant helps me effectively represent clients, whether managing their properties or trying to keep their home. Commercial Tenants and Commercial Landlords have their own special sets of problems. Allow my experience to help you navigate through those murky waters.

I went to Poly and Towson University (for a B.A. in Psychology). During college and prior to law school, I held many different jobs. I eventually wound up as a real estate broker for an independent real estate brokerage. After doing that for a while, I decided to seek a law degree at University of Baltimore. After completing the Juris Doctor, I wanted to complete my education in business. I am currently seeking an MBA degree as well.
For me, lawyering is about community. I don’t work for faceless corporations and megabanks. I work for ordinary people with ordinary problems. My clients don’t try to explain how they destroyed the economy with a reckless computer program. They try to explain why their tenant should have paid his rent by the 15th. They don’t deal in the nuances of insider trading. They try to explain that it wasn’t their weed in the bag in the backseat. They aren’t getting rich off multi-billion dollar government contracts. They’re dealing with the headaches of a failed contract of sale on their house.
Some people think lawyers are wizards or vampires. Strange, dangerous, and inscrutable beasts that drain your money for the possibility of a desired outcome. And I’m not saying that the reputation is not justified.
But that’s not why I went to law school – I went to law school because I saw that my family, friends, and community needed good honest lawyering at a price they could afford. They needed it from a person they could trust. I hope I can fill that need for you.
I graduated from Mercyhurst University in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. I also graduated from the University of Scranton with a Master of Business Administration.
I was always drawn to the legal field. As I gained experience in contract management, I realized I needed to continue my legal education. I graduated from the University of Baltimore’ School of Law in 2019. I was admitted to the Maryland bar in 2020.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in the Liberal Arts from St. John’s College in Annapolis before attending the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, where I graduated magna cum laude with a Juris Doctor in 2014. I was admitted to the Maryland bar that year, to the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland in 2018, and to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2020. In my role of counsel to Sherwood Legal Services I practice primarily in areas of landlord/tenant law, criminal defense, and as a legal research and drafting consultant for other attorneys. Don’t hesitate to call me with your questions.
