Summary

I am a Personal Injury Attorney, a Workers' Compensation Lawyer and a Criminal Defense Counselor. Over the course of 20 plus years, I have handled thousands of cases involving accidental injury including hundreds of car accident cases in which my clients have sustained serious personal injury, incurred huge medical bills and lost wages, and were caused to suffer from pain and endure mental anguish. I proudly handle cases throughout Maryland, focusing in Baltimore, Baltimore County, Towson, Essex, Dundalk, Middle River, Parkville, Owings Mills, Randalstown, Pikesville, Ellicot, Anne Arundel County, Glen Burnie, Annapolis, Howard County, or Columbia, Ellicot CIty, Maryland. I've secured millions of dollars in compensation for victims of the negligence. I've helped hundreds of injured workers and obtained benefits to which they were rightfully entitled, but wrongfully denied. I've defended hundreds of people accused of crimes. I've tried hundreds of cases. I'd suggest that you let me put this background and experience to work on your case. Why should you hire me? I'd offer two simple reasons why I believe someone should choose me over another lawyer: My experience and My Reduced Fee Program. I've detailed my background above. I also offer my Maryland personal injury clients a reduced fee program that features an attorney fee lower than that commonly charged by personal injury attorneys in this area. I have always believed that every accident and injury victim should have access to the services of a dedicated advocate at a fair rate. My reduced fee program gives my clients the ability to keep a greater percentage of their overall award in their pocket.

    I adamantly believe every injury victim should have access to diligent, effective representation in their quest to achieve fair compensation. I am also committed to providing that representation at a fair rate. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions about my reduced fee program. Many lawyers handle personal injury matters under what is known as a contingency fee arrangement. The "contingency" aspect means that something must occur for a fee to be earned by the attorney- specifically, a financial recovery. Usually, the lawyer will advance the costs of litigation, and, if there is a financial recovery, the lawyer will retain a percentage of that recovery as his or her fee. However, if there is no recovery obtained by the lawyer, there is no fee -and generally, no litigation costs- charged to the client. This allows the victim of negligence, who may be out of work, or disabled because of the accident, to hire an attorney to pursue the claim without having to pay a sizeable retainer or high hourly fees up-front. "Under my Reduced Fee Program, your fee percentage is always limited." Practices vary from lawyer to lawyer and jurisdiction to jurisdiction. In Maryland, a common contingency fee arrangement calls for the lawyer to retain 33.3 % of the amount recovered in the case as a fee, and, under some agreements, lawyers may retain 40% of the amount recovered as a fee if a lawsuit is filed, and the claim is litigated. Under my reduced fee reduced fee program, attorney's fees are always limited to 30% on a presuit recovery, and 35% if the case goes to litigation.

    A: You be best served by asking a lawyer in Connecticut that question.
    Q. How many years will my friend most likely serve in prison?
    A: These are obviously serious charges. If your friend has been charged as an adult, he faces in excess of 25 years in prison.

    Q. What happens if insurance company wont open a claim with a tpd order , ppd order, and penalties filed for 40% with com?
    A: It does not appear that you are represented by counsel. The the fact that you are at this stage, with the various orders you indicated, but without any worker's compensation benefits to show for it, suggests to me that perhaps it is time to change that plan of action. Many WC lawyers offer free consultations. I would strongly urge to to arrange on or more to discuss these issues. Best of luck.
    Q. How can I see discovery in a plea case?
    A: If you had an attorney, you could ask the see the file. You could file an Maryland Public Information Act request, and see what the government says in response.

    A: I'd not be inclined to give anything in writing. It is fairly common in the industry for an insurance company to ask for an 'recorded statement'. If you are confident of your story, and certain of the law that is applicable to those facts, then give a statement. If you are unsure as to how the involved legal concepts apply to your circumstances, then you should talk to an experienced personal injury attorney before giving any statement.
    Q. Can an inmate file a coram nobis in the state of Maryland?
    A: An inmate typically can file anything that a non incarcerated person could file. A Petition for Writ of Coram Nobis would be one of those documents.
    Q. are detectives supposed to read you your rights before a interview?

    Q. Can my ex-husband post an audio recording and court trial on Facebook and Youtube? I had no idea I was being recorded.
    A: There are potentially several criminal violations here as well as violations of local court administrative orders regarding the use of recording equipment in courtrooms. You should consult the State's Attorney's office. There also might be way to seek injunctive relief through the civil courts directing that these things be taken down. In that regard you should immediately consult with a seasoned civil attorney.
    Q. What types of things can I receive compensation for in a car accident lawsuit?
    A: If you sustained a bodily injury in a car accident you are entitled to recover economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages would include things like medical bills, lost wages, car rental, and any out-of-pocket expenses. Non-economic damages include things like distress, discomfort, inconvenience, pain, anguish and the like. If your vehicle was damaged, you are entitled to the cost of repair and potentially a loss of value. If you've been injured in an automobile accident, it's always best to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney.
