About Paul

Having learned to practice law in a wide range of areas, Paul developed a strong awareness of the interplay between the rules of court, the human side of dealing with judges and jurors, and fashioning relief specific to his clients.  Paul seeks new challenges posed by changes in the law, complex procedural hurdles, and unusual facts.

Each individual has facts and needs specific to the client, and Paul is focused on figuring out how best to meet each client's unique needs.

In addition to trial litigation, Paul's experience in appellate matters spans both federal and state courts.  He is a former adjunct professor of law in appellate writing at George Mason University School of Law.

Paul is a writer on civil procedure and political issues, and is at the forefront of monitoring and utilizing legislative changes.

Paul lives with his wife and son in western Fairfax County.
