About Steven

Learn Steven’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Administrative law
    Federal and state government agencies are required to follow certain procedures in order for their actions to be constitutional. For the federal government, these procedures are generally outlined by the Federal Administrative Procedure Act (FAPA). Each state government has its own set of administrative procedures as well, some of which are modeled after FAPA. I specialize in administrative procedures at the federal and/or state level.

  2. Bankruptcy and debt
    I can help you manage personal or professional debts you are unable to pay. Bankruptcy laws allow people and businesses to (1) get a “fresh start” by relieving most debts; and (2) repay the money owed to all creditors as fairly as possible. When you file for bankruptcy protection, all other legal actions against you are put on hold. Creditors cannot sue you, garnish your wages, repossess your car or home entertainment system, or start or continue with a foreclosure action against your home.

    13 years

  3. Family
    Family law includes laws of marriage, civil unions, same-sex relationships, domestic partnerships, divorce, separation, property settlements, alimony, spousal abuse, adoption, child abuse, child support, child custody and kidnapping. If you need help with a family-related legal issue, The Hamrick Group, LLC Law Firm can advise you in family disputes as well as represent you in lawsuits.

    13 years

  4. Immigration
    I represent people who want to come to the United States, whether it be for schooling, work, or just a visit. Immigration lawyers can also help “illegal” immigrants found living in the U.S. without permission. Immigration laws govern who can enter the U.S., how long they can stay, what they can do while they are here, and how they can become American citizens.

    13 years

  5. Insurance
    Insurance law covers the policies insurance companies can offer and the rates they can charge. Because there are so many different kinds of insurance, our service is very helpful. Personal insurance standards include auto insurance, health insurance, homeowners insurance, life insurance, and disability insurance. Business insurance standards usually include commercial liability insurance, errors and omissions insurance, malpractice insurance, and business interruption insurance.

Skill.  Honesty.  Integrity.

These are the hallmarks of Mr. Hamrick's 16 years as a practicing attorney.  Individuals and businesses have benefited from Mr. Hamrick's dedication to these principles and his devotion to his clients.  These principles serve as the bedrock for The Hamrick Group, LLC.


The Founding Member of The Hamrick Group, LLC, Mr. Hamrick emphasizes client service as the primary focus of his firm.  Whether the client is an individual involved in a divorce proceeding, or a company facing bankruptcy or immigration issues, Mr. Hamrick provides compassionate and zealous representation.  


Mr. Hamrick's skill is evidenced by his many and varied legal accomplishments.  During his career, Mr. Hamrick has attained the highest rating of an international attorney rating service.  He has successfully represented a variety of clients, be they individuals or businesses in the telecommunications, entertainment and energy industries. 


Mr. Hamrick's experience goes beyond the courtroom.  He has regularly represented clients in meetings on Capitol Hill, federal and state agencies, and the government agencies of foreign nations.  For example, Mr. Hamrick was instrumental in the Federal Communications Commission's adoption of cellular telephone rules in the Gulf of Mexico, defending his client's interests against much larger cellular carriers such as Verizon and ALLTEL.


Corporate dealings are also a specialty of Mr. Hamrick's.  He has aided startup companies in their formation and growth.  Meanwhile, Mr. Hamrick has also provided legal assistance for the creation of billion-dollar entities and mergers, such as the AOL - Time Warner merger.


A frequent speaker at industry and civic events, Mr. Hamrick has given presentations on the law before international audiences.  In addition to speaking engagements, he has also authored articles in industry publications.  Mr. Hamrick has been featured in a French magazine concerning business competition.   


Mr. Hamrick earned his Juris Doctorate from Washington College of Law in Washington, DC.  Before that, he attained his Bachelor of Arts degree from American University in the Nation's Capital, where he was also selected as the outstanding graduate of the university's broadcast journalism program.


A native of Baltimore, MD, Mr. Hamrick resides in Montgomery County, MD with his wife, Jacqueline, and their three cats (Pancakes, Marty and Rosie).  He holds licenses to practice law in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Washington, DC.  Mr. Hamrick is also admitted to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and the United States District Court for the District of Maryland.
