About Me

 I still  enjoy getting up each day, spending time at home with my family and friends and practicing law.  About 50% of my work week is in court and the balance meeting with new clients and managing my office.  There is nothing to trivial for a client in need.  It is important to analyze the problem, find a solution and hopefully convey it quickly, efficiently and inexensively to a client.


Our clients come from all walks of life as referrals from other clients and other attorneys. Our firm has grown to 10 attorneys and 10 administrative assistants. If our full service law firm can assist you please contact me.

  • Brian David Lyman

    Sam Brown is an unparalleled advocate for his clients, overall. In particular, I've had the privilege of watching him practice and in assisting him in many matters involving local and administrative law, here in Anne Arundel County and Annapolis. His representation of clients in the local administrative agencies, hearings and boards of appeal is savvy and precisely calculated to maximize results for his clients.
