With 19 years of experience as an attorney I am well-qualified to provide a number of quality legal services. I specialize in the following areas:
I am a former employee of the US Department of Labor. If you've been discriminated against by the federal government or by an employer in the District of Columbia as an employee, there are a number of legal avenues you can pursue. I have handled many such cases and I am prepared to help you today. Call me today to schedule an initial consultation. Most Employment Discrimination representation is provided on a hourly fee basis, however there are some limited exception to the hourly fee basis. Typically, there is also an initial consultation fee.
In the last year the DC Human Rights Office has expanded civil rights protections in the workplace regarding two areas. First the DC Human Rights Act makes it very clear that an employee may not be discriminated against in the workplace because of gender choice or dress. If you feel as though you are being discriminated against based on your gender, please make an appointment with my office. The second area of new law under the DC Human Rights Act is the DC Pregnancy Act, which prevents an employer from discriminating against a woman who has just given birth or who needs to care for a newborn in the workplace. If you feel as though you are being discriminated against because you have a new baby that you need to care for in the workplace please call my office at (202)669-5880.

If you believe your disabled child is not receiving the appropriate education that he or she deserves and is entitled to under the Federal Special Education Laws, call me today. Services may include Consultations, Individualized Education Program (IEP) representation, representation at due process hearings, and representation during litigation.
Prior to the enactment of Federal Laws mandating educational rights for disabled children, it was up to individual parents, like my mother, to fight tooth and nail to ensure that their disabled children received an appropriate education. Growing up as a child with a physical disability, watching my mother struggle for my own education, I saw many doors slammed in her face. These experiences shaped my strong commitment to ensure that no other child would be denied a free and appropriate education. Today my commitment to disabled children and to their parents is to be the strongest possible advocate for their educational rights. While I cannot guarantee a success in every case, I can promise you that I will be fully committed to your case. Special Education representation is provided on a hourly basis, and there is an initial consultation fee. Contact me for more information.
