I have more than six years of experience in the field of law. As you will see from my resume, I have been consistently rewarded for effective hard work with increasingly complex cases as well as additional responsibilities. I obtained my undergraduate education at the University of Delaware and my legal education at the University of Baltimore School of Law. I graduated from law school in 2007 and was licensed to practice law in Maryland in the same year. After becoming licensed to practice law, I began employment as house counsel with Timothy S. Smith and Associates. During my time there, I would handle 60-80 cases at any given time from inception to resolution whether the resolution was settlement, ADR, trial, or appeal. I litigated 20 jury trials and more than 100 bench trials independently. During the course of my employment with Timothy S. Smith and Associates, I was assigned several instructive and managerial roles in addition to my litigation assignments. More specifically, I led several seminars for claims representatives to assist them in understanding the legal process. Also, I have trained several attorneys in litigation practice. Finally, I was responsible for a team of ten people within the office, a group that included other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries. Currently, I am the proprietor of a remote legal consulting firm. I perform tasks for individual clients such as drafting legal documents and reviewing contracts. I also provide cost-effective, reliable litigation support for attorneys.
My professional career began at NASA working as a design engineer in a laboratory dedicated to earth sciences. During 12 years I garnered two patents related to GPS technology and did original design work with radars, lasers, radiometers and (at the time) high speed data acquisition systems. I left NASA to start a .com start-up providing Internet and other networking services in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. I sold this business in 2002 and moved to Mexico with my Mexican fiancee.

During this time, I got a US law degree from Concord University (an Internet play), a Mexican law degree, a Mexican Masters in Law degree and am now working on a Doctorate in Law specializing in Governmental Transparency. I have been a litigating attorney in Mexico for the past 6 years with my specialty being "amparo" (Mexican Constitutional Law) I have also done business/consulting work for local Mexican businesses.
