  • David Keith Felsen

    I strongly endorse this lawyer. I have known Mr. Helfand for many years . We have worked together on cases and represented conflicting parties. I have watched Mr. Helfand in trial and in negotiations. He is remarkable. Mr. Helfand is extremely knowledgable in the law, and even more knowledgable in the ways to deal with people. He is truly a star in the Maryland legal community. Any person chosing Barry Helfand as his or her lawyer is making a great choice.
