Office of the Attorney General of Maryland
Ryan Dietrich has filed over 350 briefs and argued 75 cases before appellate courts in Maryland, but the key to his success lies in always moving forward and striving for constant improvement.
As senior counsel for federal habeas corpus litigation for the Office of the Attorney General of Maryland, Dietrich’s role in the judiciary system is to make sure justice was achieved by trial prosecutors throughout the appellate process.
“No matter what is on the line, each case will be meticulously researched and written and be treated as if it was the most important,” he said.
A Maryland native who attended law school at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, Dietrich involved himself in all aspects of the law as a student. It’s a commitment he maintains today, for instance, in continuing a class service project to record incarcerated fathers reading to their children he began as a fellow in the Leadership Academy of the Maryland State Bar Association, said retired Court of Appeals Judge Glenn T. Harrell, Jr.
He’s also active in the Bar Association of Baltimore City. In 2018-2019, he’ll serve as the chairman of the group’s Government & Public Interest Lawyers Committee.
At home in Pigtown, Dietrich remains active in his community association, having served on the board for the past 12 years. He’s a member of the board of Pigtown Main Street, a nonprofit dedicated to the historic and economic revitalization of the historic neighborhood.
