Robert B. Schulman, Managing Partner of
Schulman, Treem, Kaminkow & Gilden P.A., maintains a diverse and
high-profile litigation and business law practice, ranging recently from
the representation of a former Maryland State Senator against federal
criminal charges, to the negotiation and resolution of complex business

numerous professionals in contentious partnership and business disputes.
