Story
Tagline
Attorney focusing on small government contractors, author of The Small-Business Guide to Government Contracts, publisher of the SmallGovCon Blog, and proud daddy of two amazing kids.
Introduction
I am an attorney whose practice focuses on the unique needs of small businesses dealing with the federal government.  I guide small businesses on government contracts compliance issues (and wrote a book, The Small-Business Guide to Government Contracts, about compliance with the FAR, SBA regulations, and similar matters).  

I also take care of the special (and often confusing) paperwork many small government contractors need, such as 8(a) joint venture agreements, SDVOSB joint venture agreements, 8(a) mentor-protege applications, DoD mentor-protege applications, teaming agreements, subcontracts, consulting agreements, 8(a) program applications, VA CVE applications, HUBZone program applications, and so on.  

When the rubber hits the road, I help small government contractors resolve disputes.  I am experienced in GAO bid protests, SBA size protests, SBA OHA appeals, SDVOSB protests, and many other forums for resolving government contracts matters.

I love working with small government contractors, but I believe that there should be more to life than time at the office.  When I am not practicing law, you can find me spending time with my wonderful family, cheering on the Duke Blue Devils and Kansas Jayhawks (hey, they're in different conferences, so there's no conflict!) and dominating my fantasy football leagues.
