I am a Virginia lawyer offering a range of legal services, including criminal law, family law and immigration legal representation (Loudoun, Stafford, Fairfax, Arlington and Prince William counties).
The main reason I became a lawyer was that I didn’t see much diversity in the legal profession and I thought the lawyers I hired for my life events, did not understand the context or cultural background. Though I tried to find other lawyers, my searches were futile.
I am an immigrant from India who became a US CItizen a long time ago. My father and grandfathers were farmers and I studied Agriculture all through PhD, and later, after working in different areas of expertise including a tenured Assistant Professorship at Tamil Nadu Agricultural University and a stint in computer programming with Accenture, I took up law.
My first encounter in the United States was as a graduat research fellow with the International Food Policy Research Institute in Washington DC in 1994. I started my career as an Agricultural Economist, as a teaching Professor, and a DAAD fellow in Germany (https://www.daad.de/en/). Later after publishing a book and marriage and a beautiful daughter, I studied law. That means I bring multiarea multicultural skill set to the practice of law.
I received Rosa Parks Scholarship and studied law at the only public and affordable law school in Washington DC- the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law and became a lawyer. My team won the ABA Client Counseling Competition Championship in Region 3 (https://www.law.udc.edu/news/84579/Tobias-Brown-3L-and-Punitha-Cloud-1L-Win-Region-3-ABA-Client-Counseling-Competition.htm). We also won the second place at the Nelson Mandela Int'l Negotiations Competition. Some small law schools produce great defenders.
I encourage people to donate to UDC David A. Clarke School of Law which shapes many immigrant women and men and minority students into fierce defenders. https://www.law.udc.edu.
