Awards & Honours
I earned my law degree at the Cornell Law School and have over thirty years\' experience representing individuals and employees in federal and local trial courts, and appellate courts throughout the country. I have extensive jury trial experience. In addition to the District of Columbia, I have tried cases to juries in San Diego and Oakland, California; Seattle, Washington; Nashville, Tennessee; Prince Georges County, Maryland; and in Alexandria and Richmond, Virginia. I served for eight years on the Board of Governors of the Trial Lawyers Association of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., and I am still a member of TLA and of the Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association. I started as a litigation and trial attorney with the Air Line Pilots Association, the largest pilots\' union, for nine years. After that I joined Connerton, Ray $ Simon, a small, union-side labor law firm in Washington, D.C. and was there for another nine years, becoming a partner. I left to join the law firm of Koonz, McKenney, Johnson, DePaolis & Lightfoot, one of the top personal injury firms in the area, and spent five years with that firm. In 2004 I opened my own office.
