Sondra approaches the practice of law in a very practical manner, but with an an intuitive understanding of her client’s particular needs. This helps her offer and deliver creative and effective solutions.
Sondra’s clients quickly come to know that she cares not only about their case but also about them. Sondra understands how the impact of a divorce, a custody battle or a personal injury extends beyond the individual and affects entire families. She coaches her clients through each decision, ensuring that they completely understand how it may impact not only the outcome of their case but other surrounding aspects of their life. Having first developed her trial skills as a Maryland Public Defender, Sondra has built an outstanding track record for her clients, both through negotiation and through litigation.
