Nearly 4 years ago when deciding to begin my own solo law practice, I spent a significant amount of time debating whether or not to open an office primarily based in Baltimore City where I had learned my trade, and had made countless connections over the prior decade in the profession, or to open my practice close to home here in Cecil County.
The decision was not as difficult as one would imagine, and it hinged almost entirely on my family. At the time my children were aged 6 and 2, and I knew I didn’t want to waste valuable time in their developing lives commuting to and from Baltimore City each and every day. I knew that financially, the decision would likely not be as lucrative as opening my practice in Baltimore City, but it was important for me to be here for my family.
The decision also came with the added benefit of being able to offer a service to my home community. Each year I help hundreds and hundreds of citizens of Cecil County with a variety of legal situations and problems. Each and everyone of these clients is a part of this local community, and I quickly developed an extra sense of pride in my work as it relates to the local community.
When I was approached to run for the House of Delegates, I quickly realized that the talents and experience that I have honed in my professional career could easily translate to aid more people, and to do so in a way that gives back to the community that has allowed me to grow my business over these years.
I have observed a tremendous amount of political banter and partisan fighting in the government spectrum. I am at times disgusted with the desire that our elected representatives have to fight each other over political agenda, and spend what seems to be almost no time fighting the problems that face our communities on a daily and ongoing basis.
I am running to be a part of the solution for the people of Cecil County. I pledge to work with the County government and their representatives, as well as local organizations here in the County, and provide a much needed voice for our county in Annapolis.
I hope that you will take the time to learn more about me, my position on issues, and do not hesitate to reach out to me with specific questions as you educate yourself on the candidates running for this office. I want to earn your vote.
