I help people who have been seriously injured by malpractice obtain justice and compensation.
My passion in life is to help children and families who have been seriously injured by the careless conduct of others. Partnered with two doctors and a registered nurse who became lawyers, I pursue this passion in the courtroom by representing birth injured children and others who have been needlessly injured by negligence. By the grace of God, my partners and I have had substantial success for our clients in Maryland and across the United States.
I have received an AV Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell. An AV rating is the highest rating available from Martindale-Hubbell for ranking a lawyer’s ethics and legal ability and reflects the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary. I have also been recognized as among "Maryland's Top Lawyers" for 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009 in Super Lawyers Magazine and was honored to receive a Maryland Daily Record, "Leadership in Law" Award in 2009.
Holding negligent people and corporations accountable for wrongfully injuring others is what I do!
