Since 1994, I've been working as a full time Professional Title Abstractor doing title searches for real property, serving Washington DC and Maryland. During those years, I've gained a wealth of experience, both in commercial and residential searches. 


My education background is as follows: JD Degree, Northwestern California University School Of Law; Bachelor of Science in Law Degree, Northwestern California University School Of Law;  Bachelor’s Degree with Honors in Criminal Justice and Associate's Degree with honors in Paralegal Studies. 


In addition to doing title searches, I've conducted title searching training; prepared notices for foreclosures; examined title searches; processed title claims and reviewed potential estate claims. 


The above combined experience, among other things, has provided me with a much-needed broader view of what the settlement process entails, and in effect, the necessary tools tailored to meet the needs of my customers; a product that is timely, efficient, and second to none.


I've always brought an abundant amount of energy, creativity, dedication, experience and professional knowledge to my work.
