Lebau and Neuworth LLC
There are two aspects of Richard Neuworth’s job as a partner at Lebau and Neuworth LLC in Towson that he finds the most enjoyable.
He mentors young attorneys by providing feedback and discussing his own experiences to impart lessons he has learned throughout his more than 35 year career. The University of Baltimore School of Law graduate also likes helping his clients who are personal injury and employee and employment benefit cases, get justice.
Neuworth decided to be a lawyer as a way to help others and was drawn to litigation because he felt it was challenging. After working in two law firms more than seven years, he decided to open up his own practice in 1988 because he liked the aspect of having an interest in the firm’s decision making. His current firm opened its doors in 1997.
Over the years, Neuworth has been heavily involved in the Maryland State Bar Association participating in many aspects including on the Laws Committee, the Labor and Employment Law Council and the Elder and Disability Law Council. He decided to be active because “I felt that (MSBA) was the premiere legal organization in the state of Maryland that could do the most good for the most people and I still think that is the case,” he said. “It also gave me the opportunity to meet people who had opposing points of view or different points of view.”
For more than a decade, he has served as an adjunct lecturer at the University of Maryland School of Law discussing social security disability and age discrimination as a part of their elder law class. He has also given presentations at the University of Baltimore School of Law, Johns Hopkins University and Towson State University.
