PERSONAL INJURY | ACCIDENTS | AUTOMOBILE

From handling thousands of personal injury cases over the last three decades, what I have learned is that folks need to get their automobile repaired as soon as possible. They need a rental car to get to work or childcare, they need appropriate and caring medical attention, and they need a lawyer who can pick up any loose ends and guide them to a fair settlement.

You want a lawyer who will return your calls and an office that keeps you informed about how your case is going. Most of all, whether it is a construction accident case or an auto accident, you want results and a lawyer who is not afraid to fight the insurance company in court.

I have settled or tried automobile accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice and product liability.

No lawyer can win all of his cases, but looking back over 35 years, I can tell you that we have settled or won for our clients the vast majority of these cases, including some cases no one thought we would win. If you want to know what I think about your case, give me a call.

CRIMINAL DEFENSE

A criminal indictment or a warrant for your arrest can be very frightening, whether you are a doctor, businessman, a union worker, a single mother, a retiree, a college student or a homeowner. If convicted, you can be sent to jail or lose the opportunity to hold a good job. In some cases, you can be fined many thousands of dollars or be deported.

The best way to deal with a criminal indictment or arrest warrant is to face it head on. Even if you made a mistake, under Maryland law it is still possible to clear your name and record. Get a good, experienced attorney who will fairly and responsibly advise and fight hard for you.

We take pride in doing a good job for our clients and helping to set the record straight for a good person who has made a mistake. Being arrested or charged with a crime can be scary, but you shouldn't be frightened. You may have more options than you realize. Give our firm a call and we will be happy to discuss your case.

DIVORCE | CUSTODY | FAMILY LAW

Many years ago, an older man—someone who would now be about my age—came into my office for a divorce. He was a successful businessman and had married a younger woman. After only a few months of marriage, he caught her in bed with another man. The man was upset and worried. He wanted to know if she could get alimony. Could she get part of his 25 year old business? He would pay me anything to fight his case.

I told him to write me a retainer for $25,000. He took out his checkbook and wrote me a check. I accepted the check and told him to take a deep breath. Then I tore up the check.

I explained to him that he did not have to spend $25,000. Under the facts of his case, his wife was not eligible for alimony or a share of his business. They had not been married long enough. As it turned out, all she wanted was a divorce. The fee was $2,000.

It goes without saying that divorce and custody cases can be emotionally explosive. I think that the most important thing in family law practice is not to throw oil on the fire. You don't want to spend $10,000 in legal fees fighting over a $2,000 interest in a timeshare.

But when the issue is a spouse who wants to deny you the right to see your child or wants to control when and where you see your child, then I spare no effort in fighting and securing justice for mothers and fathers. There is a time to compromise and there is a time to fight. A good lawyer will help you choose the right path. The one thing I know is that you should not have to sell your home to pay your lawyers' fees. Feel free to call us. The consultation is free.
