Maria Patterson has been litigating for 24 years. She has tried over 100 jury trials and hundreds of bench trials. Currently, she is accepting clients in all areas but concentrates in personal injury, criminal defense, and civil mediation including family law matters. This year, Maria constructively used her time working remotely during the pandemic to take over 100 CLE hours so she could effectively handle mediations, including divorce, child custody, financial division, and parent coordination. Maria also furthered her education with online classes earning additional college credits in Developmental Psychology and Anatomy and Physiology 1 and 2, particularly interested on the impacts of trauma and violence on the developing brains of children and young adults.
Selected as a Top 100 "Super Lawyer" in Maryland, and a Top 50 Women "Super Lawyer" in Maryland, Maria has handled numerous domestic matters, serving to obtain justice for victims but also to seek justice for those wrongfully accused of domestic violence or other crimes. Since 2014, Maria has been recognized as a "Top 100 Trial Lawyer" by The National Trial Lawyers and she has been nominated as one of the "10 Best" Attorneys in client satisfaction for the State of Maryland by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys and the American Institute of Criminal Defense Attorneys.
