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.

Fees
  • Free Consultation
    I extend a complimentary case evaluation, legal analysis and strategy planning session to anyone that is considering hiring me as their lawyer. In this initial meeting, I have three aims: To explore, develop and organize the operative facts surrounding the case, claim or defense To identify and analyze the legal issues involved, and To develop a plan to achieve the client's objectives. A fourth aim is to extend this service to the prospective client at no cost.
  • Contingent Fees
    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.

Q. My brother was struck by a car and killed in Baltimore Maryland the officers won't tell us anything what can we do
A: I am very sorry for your family's loss. I know that these are trying times but you must act relatively quickly here to ensure that all relevant information is preserved. You must immediately hire a personal injury attorney to pursue wrongful death and other appropriate actions. There any. Apparently there is an active investigation going on and information regarding this tragedy in the driver of the other vehicle might not be available now, but it certainly will be later and must be preserved. A lawyer retained to handle the estate would not pursue this for you as a matter of course. Again, sorry for your loss. Best of luck.
Q. Can I sue a driver hitting my parked car and run off but was caught and went back to the scene?
A: If his insurance company refuses payment or if you can't come to reasonable terms, you can sue the other driver. You may be able to make a claim for the diminished value of your automobile if you have evidence that the vehicle is worth less then it would otherwise be after having been wrecked and repaired.
Q. hello, would you happen to know the chances of someone getting house arrest or
A: First degree assault carries a maximum penalty of 25 years and second degree assault 10 years. There might be a variety of mitigating factors that a judge would consider at sentencing that are not present in your question. The person charged should immediately consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney. These are very serious charges.
