About Me


Robert Katz is one of the leading personal injury attorneys in the nation. For three decades, he has built one of the most successful personal injury practices. His practice employs six attorneys with approximately one hundred years combined experience as well as ten paralegals. He has obtained in excess of two hundred million dollars in compensation for his clients. He enjoys the highest peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell.

Mr. Katz prides himself in having developed the loyalty of many immigrant groups including the Asian, Spanish, African, Middle-Eastern, and many other populations that reside in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Mr. Katz is currently a member of the Maryland State Bar Association Committees on Medical-Legal Issues and Worker's Compensation; the Products Liability Subcommittee of the Baltimore City Bar Association; and a sustaining member of the American Association for Justice, where he serves on the Membership Committee. In 2003, Robert was named as an "Outstanding Lawyer of America," and he was also elected to the Maryland Eagles Club of the Maryland Association for Justice. In 1997, he was inducted into the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and he presently remains a member.

Prior to joining Gordon, Feinblatt, Robert was a trial attorney for the Federal Aviation Administration Office of Chief Counsel from 1973 to 1974 where he handled medical/legal cases, and for the Department of Justice, Civil Division, Torts Section as a trial attorney from 1974 to 1976, where he handled air crash cases. At the Justice Department, he received merit awards each year for his success as a trial attorney defending the United States in complex, wrongful death cases involving up to 125 fatalities from a single air crash accident. Thereafter, Robert was Counsel to The Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company of Maryland where he handled personal injury defense litigation.
