About Eric

Learn Eric’s areas of practice.

After attending George Washington University Law School, I worked for both small and large firms focusing on personal injury law, including heavy litigation and trial work. During those years of practice, I experienced a wide range of techniques and philosophies regarding the practice of law, and formed strong ideas about the way it should be practiced. Wanting to apply those ideas and develop my own practice, I left large firm life to launch a two-lawyer partnership. That partnership amicably ended in June 2014. I then moved my practice to Lanham, Maryland which is conveniently located a few minutes from the DC Beltway (I-495) and I-95.

I’ve tried at least 30 jury trials and 30 bench (judge only) trials in courts from Baltimore County, Maryland to Fairfax County, Virginia, and everywhere in between. I’ve litigated cases in all of the Federal District (trial level) Courts in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia, and in state courts as far north as Cecil County, Maryland, and as far south as Bath County, Virginia. These days I handle more cases arising from incidents in Prince George's County than from anywhere else.  I’ve resolved cases for clients through jury trials, bench trials, arbitrations, mediations, and settlements.

I believe that attention to the details of all aspects of my cases result in the best possible outcome for my clients. Having my own firm allows me to spend more time with my clients than I could when I worked at other firms. I think this leads to more client comfort and better results. The most gratifying part of my job is the consistent positive feedback I get from clients, who appreciate my strengths as a lawyer and the personal support I give them through the litigation process, and when necessary, trial process.

For five years, I taught trial advocacy as an Adjunct Professor at the George Washington University Law School. The process of preparing for class, discussing trial advocacy issues with students, evaluating their performances, and answering their questions has made me an even better trial lawyer.

Although I'm an attorney, I do not practice personal injury law, so I hired Eric for my personal injury claim against an insurer. I'm glad I did. Eric demonstrated remarkable expertise and strategic acumen in this area. He put together a well-thought, carefully planned case that resulted in a favorable settlement, while keeping me clearly informed along the way.

Outstanding Lawyer
After a serious car accident, we could not have done without the invaluable legal skills of Eric Stravitz. He handled all of our paperwork with Medicare and the insurance companies and took tremendous stress off of us which made our recuperation much easier. He treated us with genuine compassion and concern. We would enthusiastically recommend his services to anyone in need of a lawyer.

Excellent Lawyer
Eric did a great job in resolving my car accident case. He is very understanding, informative and capable as well as very easy to get in touch with. He took away the stress of dealing with an accident and the resulting negative effects. I was able to focus on getting better while he took care of the legal aspects.

Excellent
I rarely ever write reviews however, my experience with Eric Stravitz was amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional and patient. He took the time go over every detail of my case and though I have an extremely busy schedule where I am almost never available, he always took the time to work with me, reach out to me and find a way to communicate with me. He provided excellent advice and I never felt like I was "just another client". I will work with him again in the future if I need to and refer everyone who needs a lawyer to his firm. Thanks again for everything

Very professional, helpful and patient. It was my first time being represented buy a lawyer and Eric is very easy to work with. He never made me feel dumb even though I asked dumb questions. He was able to explain things in layman's terms. I never felt rushed.

Excellent, very highly recommended.
I cannot recommend hiring Eric enough. My wife and I were in an automobile accident in 2015 and he was referred to us by our doctor. He was always courteous, professional, and very diligent in his work for us. He helped is get  a much better settlement than we would have ever been able to get without him. You will be extremely happy if you hire him.

Knowledgeable, professional, and personable
I was involved in a car accident twice and met Eric Stravitz for legal need of my body injury. Eric walked me through all the potential issues and outcomes. I am impressed with his knowledge, his attention to detail, his proficiency, and his accomplishment. We got best results in both situations. I recommend anyone seeking good results to go no where but run to Eric and his staff.

Excellent Attorney
I was referred to Eric by friends after I was involved in an accident with an automobile while cycling. I ended up with a broken wrist among other issues. Eric was excellent and I don’t think I could have gotten better advice as well as legal support elsewhere. Eric is very professional and caring. His top priority was that I got all my medical needs taken care of before anything else. Eric and his assistant Laura were very detailed oriented and I don’t think I was capable of dealing with the aftermath on my own, specially when dealing with insurance companies, including my own policy. Throughout the process Eric communicated with me whenever there was an update as well as presented me with all possible course of actions (and the possible outcomes) so that I can be well informed and make the right decision. In the end, I was very happy with the outcome and I highly recommend Eric’s service if you have a personal injury case.

The best of the best
Eric Stravitz is a top tier attorney. Sharp as a tack, misses nothing, leaves no stone unturned, is great on his feet and is a brilliant advocate. As an attorney, I brought him in on a case in Federal Court and the results were fantastic and way beyond expectations. I recommend him most highly and would use him again in a heartbeat.

Highly Competent Lawyer
It was through pure luck that I found Mr. Stravitz on the Internet. My husband’s death was both untimely and unexpected. I was in a quandary and found it difficult to deal many financial and legal matters. Between grieving my husband’s death and understanding the financal complexities (since he had died without a will). It was with a heavy heart that I started the search for a very special lawyer. He would have to be extremely tolerant, patient, and kind, as I have both limited driving and computer skills. Since I was convinced that my husband passed away due to medical negligence, many lawyers were not willing to accept my case. However, it was fortunate that I found Mr. Stravitz. He was wonderful with his patience and perseverance and he guided me through all the intricacies of the case we had made against the doctor. It was long and laborious. He went above and beyond the call of duty and finally, after a prolonged battle, he won the case for me. What can I say but a very big THANK YOU from the bottom of his heart. I hope his practice continues to flourish and reach new heights. I would highly recommend him for his services.

Top-notch representation
Two years ago, I was broadsided by an 18-wheeler in a multi-car pileup. Though several law firms initially refused to even consider my case because authorities hadn't yet assigned blame, Eric took an immediate interest in my case and, more importantly, my health. He and his staff kept me up to date every step of the way, and we ultimately settled with the at-fault party for a sizable sum. Additionally, he and his staff helped negotiate a considerable discount for my medical and physical therapy bills. In short, having Eric in my corner provided a much-needed peace of mind during a rough time. It was a professional and pleasurable experience, and I'd certainly recommend his services to others.

It is my pleasure to write this review to recommend attorney Eric Stravitz. My son was the victim of a dog bite case and I research and found Eric online and decided to contact him, that was the best thing I did. I can honestly say the entire process was very smooth. Eric handled everything in a prompt, accurate and professional manner. My son's case was not large but I cannot imagine being treated any better. I was also very pleased with the settlement my son and I received. Eric comes highly recommended.

outstanding representation by Eric Stravitz
Eric was referred to me by my brother, a DC corporate attorney, after I was injured in a car crash. I have a law degree, and I work with attorneys on a daily basis in my profession. I probably could have handled my claim myself, however I wanted to make sure that I was adequately protected, and this was not my expertise. Retaining Eric was the correct choice. He had excellent communication skills, knew how to proceed, was always responsive, and achieved a better resolution than I would have without representation. I highly recommend Eric!
