The articles on this site cannot and are not intended to provide legal advice on any individual legal problem. You should not take action on the basis of general informational articles found on this or any other website. To render competent legal advice, an attorney needs to consider the specific facts and apply the appropriate legal principles.

This law office undertakes no duty of any kind to a person utilizing this website until such time as we mutually decide to form an attorney-client relationship. No attorney-client relationship is formed by your use of this website, or by your e-mail message to me. If you do send an e-mail message, please do not send any confidential information; my first task is to determine whether a given representation could create a conflict of interest.  I will provide a free telephone consultation of 10-15 minutes without charge.  I don’t represent public employees in employment disputes.

I am licensed to practice in all courts in the State of Maryland, and also practice in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, both in Baltimore and Greenbelt, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.  I cannot render advice on the laws of any other jurisdiction.
