Louise is a former civil engineer who is now a litigation attorney as a second career. She has first and second chair trial experience and has argued motions in state court.

Before joining the firm, Louise was able to leverage her land-use engineering experience in her chosen practice area of real estate, zoning, and construction litigation. Her first chair experience was as first chair in a zoning dispute in Loudoun County early into her second year of practicing law. Since then, she has assisted with several Loudoun County and Fairfax County Zoning and general real estate disputes. Over the past year and a half, she has expanded her practice area to include complex construction projects representing owners and general contractors. Her experience with complex construction projects includes assisting with construction related litigation in Federal and State courts and AAA arbitrations.

Louise has an active pro-bono caseload, which ranges from no-contest divorces to landlord – tenant disputes. In her spare time, she enjoys riding, boxing, and spending time with her dogs.
