I have engaged in the general practice of law for 50 years and have concentrated in the family law area for the past 30 years. I have mediated civil and family law cases, with an emphasis on family law cases, for the past 29 years and have practiced collaborative law for 18 years. I am an approved mediator for the Circuit Courts of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties. It is clear that divorcing parties and their families can benefit from a healthy alternative to the sometimes damaging and inflexible litigation process of divorce. I am the divorced father of two wonderful gentlemen who have successfully survived their parents' divorce.I am a former Special Magistrate for the Circuit Court for Howard County, primarily responsible for taking testimony in uncontested divorces.
