Q & A With Attorney
How long have you practiced law?
I have been practicing law since 2006. I was admitted to the Maryland bar on December 13, 2006. When I was admitted to practice law, I was working for the Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office. As soon as I was admitted, I was sworn in as an Assistant State’s Attorney. I work there for 3 years and then started my own law practice.
What types of cases of you generally handle?
I generally handle cases that involve going to court or trial work. That means if a client has to go to Court then I would be the lawyer that would handle that type of case. I handle cases that involve personal injury or accidents. That means if you have been hurt because someone else was negligent, then I would help that client recover money for their injuries.
Who is your typical client?
I represent all types of clients, from blue collar workers to professionals. Anyone that is facing an injury from the negligence of another person.
What are the attorney fees and costs and how are they billed?
Fees and costs are based on the type of case you have. For personal injury cases, I charge based on a contingency. That means the fee is based on a percentage of the final settlement or verdict in the case.
How many cases have handled that are similar to my case?
I handle about 300-400 cases a year and have and they vary from minor fender benders to accidents that cause death.
What is your approach to winning or representing a case?
I start every case with one question; How do we win in Court? That is the end of the line and most of my cases are decided in Court. So I prepare for the case as if we are going to trial. I also think and prepare for each step in the case.
Are there other ways to resolve my legal case?
Sometimes there are other ways to resolve the case without going to Court. For example, a personal injury claim, we may be able to settle out of court with the insurance company.
How will you let me know what’s going on with my legal case?
I am available by email or phone. I advise my clients to always call me if they have a question or concern about my case. Once you hire me, you can call me at any time to discuss your case and meet with me in person to discuss the next steps.
What is the likely outcome in my case?
That all depends on what type of case you have. I can usually get in the ballpark as to some potential outcomes and I advise my clients as to the probability of each outcome for their case.
