Summary

For the past two years, I've served as Greene County's Commonwealth's Attorney (chief prosecutor). I've assisted with investigating and prosecuting felony and misdemeanor offenses, from minor traffic violations to serious felonies.

From 2014-2017, I built a practice in government accountability. I represented citizens' groups and individual plaintiffs who were denied access to government records and were forced to go to court to obtain them. I litigated suits in Washington DC and Virginia under the federal Freedom of Information Act, and appeared in state courts throughout the country handling similar litigation brought under state laws.
