During that time, he handled thousands of District Court misdemeanor cases, Juvenile Court matters, traffic court matters (including hundreds of DUIs) and many high-profile Circuit Court jury trials.

His interest in Entertainment Law and protecting the rights of performing artists led him to Emory University School of Law in Atlanta where he had planned to pursue a career in the field of Sports and Entertainment Law.

He was also named the Best Orator and won the Best Brief award for his writing skills. He was named to the National Moot Court team where he represented his law school against other top law schools on a national level. He also finished first in his class in Sports and Entertainment Law. However, it was his exposure to litigation inside the criminal courtroom as a student prosecutor which changed his career path and upon graduation he accepted a position with The Department of Justice in Wilmington, Delaware. The next year, he accepted a position as an Assistant State's Attorney with the Montgomery County State's Attorney's office in Rockville, Maryland.

He also held the positions of Director of Professional Development where he created, organized and presented training programs for all new Circuit Court attorneys.
