Jon handled my medical malpractice claim. He is extremely knowledgeable and able to communicate the laws, process and options clearly so that a lay person can understand. Early on he developed a strategy to handle the case, explained it to us for our concurrence and executed it to a tee. He is aggressive but looks for a satisfactory resolution without necessarily going to court. His extensive background in this area and innumerable contacts in the field made the process relatively painless. He and his staff (Missy) were always available to meet with us or to discuss things over the phone. As we proceeded through the process Jon kept us advised of what was happening even as things moved slowly thorough the system. One of my fraternity brothers is a lawyer who handles medical malpractice cases for hospitals (essentially Jon's opponent). When I asked him about Jon he said "he is one of the good guys". Enough said

Jon Brassel was my attorney for a wrongful death case. My husband died from aortic dissection, that could have been prevented. Jon came from his office in Annoppolis to Salisbury to meet with me. If I had to use only two words to describe Jon they would professional and companionate. You need both of those qualities when in a situation such as mine. I was 36 years old, our son was 8, devastated would be putting it mildly.
When we met he had some information I sent him. I was afraid I was going to break down at this meeting. He ask questions, let me tell my story, and with his professional and compatiante manner I got through it. Leaving that day feeling hopeful. When I would get updates from Jon he explained process and laws and circumstances and made sure understood. If I didn't I never felt rushed, if I had questions. We went to deposition, the doctor sat in the room, his two attorneys and a recorder. I did not feel intimidated, I was comfortable with Jon being on my side of the table. Some time later we closed, we won. I went to his office I met his team of professionals who worked on my case.
I still contact Jon from time to time and have sent pictures of life events. I consider him my friend. He gave me strength, hope and confidence. He is the reason I was able to carry on and live my life without financial burdens. I am so thankful to have found him to represent me.

Jon recently settled a product liability lawsuit in our favor. Jon's immense experience with these types of cases and overall knowledge of the court systems and various national law practices was vital in the successful completion of our lawsuit. We felt extremely educated about our position and satisfied with the completion of our lawsuit. I would highly recommend Jon to anyone who is injured due to someone else’s negligence.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Jon and I were on opposing sides of a complex asbestos-related property damage case, involving literally hundreds of public buidings. Although he fought hard for his corporate client and was successful in reducing the amount of my client's recovery, he was always extremely professional. Since that time, Jon and I have had occasion to work as co-counsel on matters. He is always very prepared and client-focused. This is the reason he is one of the most respected trial lawyers in Maryland.
