I was born in Mobile, Alabama. My parents were both Southerners: my mother from Alabama and my father from Virginia. Because my father was in the military, I lived all over the United States and the world. I grew up in Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, Virginia, South Dakota, Montana, Germany and Spain. I attended ten schools in twelve years.
I spent four years at Harvard College and graduated with an honors degree in economics in 1979. I traveled and worked on various political campaigns and then went to Harvard Law School and graduated with honors in 1985. I came to Washington, DC and worked for several law firms and worked as a federal prosecutor in the Office of the Independent Counsel. I have been in private practice since 1990.
I have litigated cases in the local courts, in the appeals courts and in the United States Supreme Court while I was with the Office of the Independent Counsel. I don't consider any case too small or too large. I have an extremely large reservoir of experience that I can use to help you successfully solve your particular legal problem.
