Mr. Cecil- Wanted to take this time out not only to thank you for all that you have done for us, all your hard work, especially through Covid, we want to thank you. Also we want to thank you for assigning to us a wonderful person, we really appreciated Jennifer McCartney, what a gem! we really cared for your kindness and dealing with us in our stressful situation. Every time we needed help or direction she was there to aid us. There were times when our mood wasn't the best, yet Jennifer always stayed composed and very helpful and showed us the up most respect. Also one thing we were most impressed about, when she couldn't give a direct answer and had to refer to you as our lawyer, we found that so refreshing, she didn't try to be a know it all, she new her place, but worked very hard and professional. We loved her honesty very much so. Both of you were a great team. She kept us in the loop in every aspect of Keith's case. And we knew this was not easy for her, especially when this landed in her lap. She right away introduced herself to us, and made us feel confident that things will be handle right, thought she came on the scene a little later. We loved how she handle the transition. She never made us feel that we weren't being taken care of-that meant a lot to us! We will be referring you to all our friends. And we pray and hope nothing like this happens again, but due to unforeseen occurrences we may have to use your services again, and we will! Thank you for all that Jennifer our sweet girl and you have done for us. Keith & Tammy Manago

I Would Hire Him Again
Robb Cecil and his staff were of great help to me in explaining the law as it applied to my case; dealing with auto and health insurance companies; and recovering costs expended following an auto accident I did not cause that totaled my car and sent me to surgery. His knowledge and experience assured me that I could turn over my case to him with confidence. He and his staff kept me informed, notifying me of developments as needed, responding to my calls promptly, and advocating on my behalf when required. I was pleased with the outcome of my case and have already referred a friend to him for assistance after he was struck by a car. I will continue to refer people to him and will use him again myself if needed.

Highly Recommend
I worked with McGowan & Cecil when I had a car accident and I couldn’t be happier with the service or the outcome. Mr. Cecil and his paralegal, Indira, were so pleasant to work with. They always kept me informed of the status of my case and were very responsive when I had any questions or concerns. They handled everything and made it so easy on me. The outcome of my case exceeded my expectations and I know it’s because of the work Mr. Cecil and Indira did on my case. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone needing an injury lawyer!

Best in their field
Cecil and McGowan law firm is in my opinion the only firm to call. Robb always returned my calls same day and I settled my case in 10 months. This is an exceptional law firm, always professional, but also cared about your personal life. I live in North Carolina and my case was in Maryland, it did not matter and I was attended to like I was their next door neighbor . The staff was very friendly, nice, and helpful. It was always a pleasure speaking with Indira.

Grateful for Robb
If ever you're in an auto accident, the first number you or your family member should dial, after 911, are the offices of McGowan & Cecil, LLC!!! Experiencing my first auto accident was terrifying but when I contacted Robb, he immediately stepped in and put my every need first. From the day I stepped into the office, I was grateful. He ALWAYS kept me informed on the process, answered all my questions and concerns in a timely matter and kept my mind at ease. Indria was amazing in assisting me when needed or requested. She's a gem! They were there for me 100 percent throughout the entire ordeal and I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. I felt like a family member they took under their wing to help, protect and guide. I will no doubt recommend the offices of McGowan & Cecil, LLC in Maryland to friends and family knowing they will be in good hands. Robb, I can't thank you enough. KW

Personal Injury/Traumatic Brain Injury
From my initial consultation, it was evident that Mr. Cecil is well versed in personal injury/traumatic brain injuries. He and his firm kept me well informed throughout the entire process, explaining everything in great detail. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Excellent legal help, very supportive during my recovery
J Robb Cecil and Emily Znamirowski took on my case after I sustained a brain injury. They took excellent care of my legal matters, had knowledge of the medical care I needed, and showed true compassion for my injuries. I received great service and a fair settlement.
