    Personal Injury Litigation

    37 years

Many people who meet Rob Jenner know him as a tenacious trial lawyer who is uniquely committed to the personal well-being of his clients. Having tried cases in Maryland, the District of Columbia and nationwide for more than 35 years, Rob knows his way around the courtroom, and has garnered the respect of not only his peers, but also federal and state court judges. That is why he is repeatedly appointed to leadership positions in national complex litigation.


Results speak for themselves. Rob has obtained hundreds of millions of dollars for clients and for the litigations that he has lead, including those who were harmed by HIV contaminated blood and blood products; diabetes, statin and hormone therapy drugs; infusion pain pumps; transvaginal mesh; GranuFlo dialysate; Skechers toning shoes; the New England Compounding Center contaminated steroids; Essure contraceptive implants; environmental disasters; and in individual automobile, construction accident, and general personal injury cases.


A Past President of the Maryland Association for Justice, Rob now sits on MAJs Executive Committee. In May 2009, MAJ Awarded him and his co-counsel its Trial Lawyer of the Year Award for their efforts in challenging the illegal subrogation practices of Maryland’s HMOs.


Rob was honored by his peers by being inducted into the International Society of Barristers, one of the country’s most selective attorney honorary societies. He has obtained the highest rating (AV) by his peers as reflected in Martindale-Hubbell.


It is no wonder that The National Trial Lawyers selected Rob Jenner at as one of America’s 50 Most Influential Trial Lawyers (January 28, 2017). The National Trial Lawyers named him as one of America’s 50 Most Influential Trial Lawyers (2017, 2018). He is also routinely honored in the Top 100 lawyers in Maryland’s SuperLawyers®.

Simply put, Rob brings the experience and leadership necessary to maximize a recovery for you and your family.


When Rob isn’t helping clients, he and his wife, Beth, are probably scuba diving somewhere. A novice underwater photographer, Rob finds the underwater world a great balance to a busy work life. His wife is also a plaintiff’s trial lawyer, and Rob’s two kids are grown and off doing their things (Matt in Rockville, and Nikki in Boston). Living with their two Labrador retrievers, Rob and his wife also enjoy volunteering for Lab Rescue in the Baltimore/Washington area.

The lawyer's lawyer
Rob Jenner and his firm are the model for caring, compassionate, and effective lawyers. He has the credentials of a fantastic lawyer: he is a past-president of the Maryland Association for Justice (MAJ), the state-level association for lawyers representing injured victims; he is also heavily involved on the national level with the American Association for Justice (AAJ). His abilities span the breadth of the best injury lawyers: he can represent people in garden variety automobile collisions, and in multi-state litigation against the most powerful pharmaceutical companies. Perhaps most importantly, Rob is a listener. Especially for clients, Rob will make sure that he hears you, understands you, and that your voice will be heard. I have worked with him on many cases over the years, and I wholeheartedly recommend him.

Very HAAPY with Jenner Law Firm!
Hello, My name is Jeff Woodbury and your firm is representing me in a BHR case. I have been in contact with your firm since 2018. Most of that time, my contact has been with Chelsea. I am very appreciative of the way she has handled my calls and email contact over this timeframe. She always takes my call or if she missies my call, returns my call quickly. She always takes the time to answer my questions and is very sensitive to my situation. I just wanted you to hear from one of your clients that does not get treated like he is just a number to your firm. I appreciate everything you are doing for myself and my wife with our case. We are very Thankful for Chelsea and The Jenner Law Firm and we are looking forward to great results. Thank you for your time, it is greatly appreciated. Regards, Jeff & Cami

Caring...
Jenner Law is a great firm. The owner, Rob Jenner, treated me like a person, not a payday. He provided me his personal cell phone number so I could contact him directly if I wanted to. His staff were always polite and willing to help me with any questions that I had. Here's a personal experience/story that I would like to share with you about Mr. Jenner. Where I live there is an hour time difference between us...I contacted Mr. Jenner at a little after 8 pm (my time) 9 pm (his time), and left a message telling him that I was in the hospital with an unrelated health issue. He called me back within a few minutes of me hanging up. When we spoke he was sincerely concerned with my well-being and was glad that I was getting medical care. Not only that, but he text me a couple of days later to check on me to see how I was doing and asked me to keep him updated on my recovery. As I previously said, Rob Jenner, of Jenner Law Firm treats you like a person, not a payday. I highly recommend this law firm.

Hard working lawyers
I was represented by this firm for a Essure lawsuit and they have spent YEARS fighting for their clients and keeping us informed of their progress. Everyone there is very nice and helpful. Also very patient with me and taking the time to answer all my questions.

An insider's opinion
I've spoken with countless clients of Mr. Jenner; that's because I worked for him. It's truly amazing the number of people and families he's helped. Clients whose cases had settled years prior would still send Mr. Jenner cards, giving him updates on how they were doing and thanking him again. Mr. Jenner, his associates and paralegals truly believe in what they do. They may represent a large number of people (mass tort), but every client was treated as an individual. Every client that calls speaks with a knowledgeable attorney or paralegal that actually works on their case. Rob Jenner is a wonderful, respected attorney. It was an honor working for him.

He's really knows how to fight the big drug companies -- a big consumer advocate!
I knew Rob when he was just starting out in practice, suing companies that distributed tainted blood products that gave people HIV. He had fire in his belly back then, and he's never lost it. My case involved the hormone therapy replacement drug Prempro. Rob and his team fought the big pharmaceutical companies and won settlements for those of us who were hurt. Not only that, but he forced the drug off the market. I have a chronic heart condition because of Prempro, but at least the settlement has given me some financial security. I can't recommend Rob enough for anyone who has had a debilitating and permanent side effect from a drug..

Lacks professional ethics and lies to his clients
Robert Jenner represented me in an Essure lawsuit and it was a HORRIFIC experience. On top of all my injuries and suffering, having my own attorney blatantly lie about facts I can prove and keeping $45,250 from me because of his lies should be illegal!
Response from Robert Jenner June 15, 2021
I’m very sorry you feel this way. Your Essure settlement, as the settlement from all our clients, is reviewed by a law school professor who specializes in mass tort settlements, ethics, and professional responsibility. Your settlement was handled according to the strictest standards of professional ethics and was processed according to the law and our contingency fee agreement with you. I’ve explained the settlement to you in writing, both by letters and emails. I’ve asked to speak with you on the phone to discuss it verbally and you have refused to speak with me. I’m not sure what else I can do to explain how a personal injury settlement works. We negotiate a settlement on behalf of a client. From that settlement amount, you must pay an attorneys’ fee, the costs of the litigation, and any health care liens you may owe. Those terms are spelled out in every contingency fee agreement we enter with our clients; your case was no exception. Rest assured we did not hold back any money from you that you were entitled to. Every person who suffers a similar injury gets the same amount of money in the Essure litigation. In other words, a person who suffers a condition that is not related to the Essure device cannot get more funds; there must be a causal relationship between the injury and the device, and there must be an expert to support such a relationship. In your case, you obtained the same amount as others in your position. Indeed, as a contingency fee law firm, we receive more when you receive more. We have every incentive to maximize your recovery. However, there must be equity to the process, and a client cannot receive more money that others in the same position. And, of course, no client is compelled to take a settlement. Any client who is unhappy with a settlement amount is certainly free to reject that settlement offer and seek other legal representation or proceed to trial. That right was available to you, as well. Again, I remain open to discussing the settlement with you, and for you to have an advisor of your choosing with you during the conversation. It’s critically important to our firm that you understand the settlement process. The online law firm reviews we have from our clients attesting to the process we use at our firm is a product of 35+ years of ethical and professional representation of injured consumers across the country. Again, we are sorry you feel the way you do and remain open to explaining the terms of the settlement with you again.
