About me

J. Neil Lanzi was born on January 10, 1960 in Baltimore, Maryland and has been practicing law for over twenty-five years. His educational background includes graduating from Calvert Hall High School in 1978 as a member of the National Honor Society. Mr. Lanzi continued his education at Loyola College and graduated in the top 10% of his 1982 graduating class with a B.A. degree in Political Science. While attending Loyola College, Mr. Lanzi lettered on the varsity lacrosse team, served in the student government and was Director of the Student Intramural Program.

After attending the University of Baltimore School of Law, Mr. Lanzi graduated in the top half of his class with a J.D. degree in 1985. While attending law school, Mr. Lanzi had the opportunity to clerk with the law firm of White, Mindel, Clarke & Foard, a highly-regarded Towson law firm. Following graduation, Mr. Lanzi was selected to serve a judicial clerkship with The Honorable Albert P. Close of the Circuit Court for Harford County. Upon the completion of the clerkship, Mr. Lanzi accepted an associate attorney position with the Towson law firm of Seiland & Jednorski, P.A., a general practice law firm where he handled a variety of legal matters from the Summer of 1986 through the Spring of 1992.

In June of 1992, Mr. Lanzi formed the law firm known as Coover & Lanzi, with offices in Towson and Ellicott City. The law practice prospered; however, after finding that the vast majority of clients preferred the Towson office for meetings, Mr. Lanzi established his own practice in Towson on October 15, 1993 and incorporated as a professional association in 1996. Mr. Lanzi has been a member of the Maryland State Bar Association and the Baltimore County Bar Association since 1986 where he is active in the State, Local Laws and Zoning Committee.
