About me

With the formation of McAndrews Whittaker, PC in 2011, I have joined forces with a prominent member of the litigation bar, Terrence C. McAndrews, to provide  my clients with greater resources while maintaining the boutique nature of my practice.  Since the formation of McAndrews Whittaker, PC, I obtained an $850,000.00 verdict in the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County on behalf of a former family law client for whom I had already achieved a complete reversal of custody.  The jury found in our favor on theories of invasion of privacy, placing a person before the public in a false light and malicious use of civil process.  To read more about this case, please click on the following link:



I am a member of the Maryland State Bar, the Federal Bar for the Fourth Circuit and the District of Columbia.

  • Terrence Christopher Mcandrews

    Lorraine is the consummate trial lawyer, whether in Domestic and Family Law, Business Litigation, Personal Injury or any matter that brings her into the courtroom. She is always prepared and ready to represent her clients to the highest level of the profession. She knows the law, the facts of her case and controls the courtroom like few other attorneys that I have seen. She always has the respect of the Judges and the opposing attorneys. I have been a lawyer for over 20 years and Lorraine is the only person that I ever considered to be a worthy partner in the practice of law.
