About Me
Hello, I'm a former comparative literature professor turned attorney. I specialize in litigation with the federal government and advocacy on human rights and civil liberties. I grew up in the Catskill mountains and have always loved being outdoors. I can help you find some beautiful places to walk, bike, or picnic right in D.C.

I stayed here for 9 months, and it was a great place to stay. It is a very bright and airy apartment in a quiet, secure building whose common areas have recently been updated too. It is near grocery stores and public transit options, so the location is very convenient. Kate responded to my calls/texts/e-mails very quickly. Excellent James 4/17/2018 10:58:00 AM
