RRBMDK Expands With the Addition of Three New Attorneys

RRBMDK recently added three additional attorneys to our firm. They bring a wealth of experience for our clients.

Tom Urban attended the Naval Academy and Texas A&M, with distinction, expecting to pursue a career as an aeronautical engineer. He participated in one of NASA’s early research projects dealing with a manned mission to Mars. Choosing to attend law school instead of pursuing aeronautical engineering, Tom graduated from the Georgetown University Law Center, convinced that his future looked brighter here, on earth, as an associate at Williams and Connolly rather than a life among the stars.  Tom now has more than 20 years as a trial attorney handling a wide variety of complex civil and criminal cases all over the country including RICO, antitrust, employment discrimination and whistleblower claims, white collar crimes, class actions, securities law, toxic torts, corporate fraud, banking law and financial services litigation.

Elizabeth “Liz” Csoka-Bubacz  brings to the firm a solid background in real estate transactions. Having formed and managed her own real estate settlement company, she is familiar with all aspects of real estate settlements, including financing and title insurance. She has litigated a wide variety of real estate and other claims, both in bench trials in General District Courts and jury trials in Circuit Courts, including claims involving RESPA and TILA violations, wrongful foreclosures and landlord/tenant disputes. She has also advised and represented many clients in connection with short sales, foreclosures and deficiency judgments. Liz has shared her expertise through seminars and courses dealing with Fair Housing Regulations, Ethics, and home inspections.

Mark Sullivan is our most recent addition. Before joining us, he served in the Fairfax Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office for eight years, prosecuting all types of criminal misdemeanor and felony cases. Prior to that, Mark spent seven years in private practice dealing with all aspects of negotiating commercial contracts and complex litigation, including construction and leasing issues, intellectual property rights, and employment law.

We are delighted to welcome Tom, Liz and Mark to the firm. They not only deepen our bench in areas in which we already practice — real estate, complex civil litigation and criminal defense --but they also free up time for our attorneys who concentrate on other areas of our practice — corporate and business transactions, employment law, land use, wills, trusts and estates, civil rights and family law.

Contact us if you think that we can be of any assistance to you, your family, your friends and acquaintances (we are growing and always appreciate referrals) in any of the areas in which we practice. Even if we can’t help you with a particular legal matter, we will do our best to refer you to a well-qualified lawyer who can help you.
