Partner In Charge
Stacie Tobin is a litigation lawyer based in Baltimore who has devoted nearly 30 years to commercial and property liability matters, representing companies, manufacturers and financial services clients.
Tobin began her career working as a law clerk for the Hon. Deborah K. Chasanow. She later worked for the United States District Court for the District of Maryland before joining Kenny Vettori & Robinson P.A. as an associate in 1994. She joined Venable LLP in 2012 following nearly 16 years as an associate and then partner at DLA Piper LLP US.
“I made the decision with equal parts confidence and anxiety,” says Tobin. “I was confident that I had more to offer and achieve, but I was anxious about leaving a firm and a group of colleagues whom I had grown to know well for a firm that was less known to me.
” She says the move has given her a “greater sense of professional satisfaction and joy.” In her current practice, Tobin, who has committed herself to community service since high school, says she attempts to lead by example and encourage young professionals in her office to involve themselves in community and charity work.
She previously served on the board and later as president of the Special Olympics Maryland and currently serves on the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance and the Greater Baltimore Committee LEADERship program.
“I have tried to balance my non-work time between three pillars: community, charity, and profession,” she says. “For those organizations I serve, I try to engage fully so that I can devote meaningful effort toward the organization’s mission and needs and I am not just a name on the board roster.”
Tobin is a graduate of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School Law and holds a bachelor’s degree from Mount Holyoke College. Since 2013 she has been named one of the Best Lawyers in America for commercial litigation.
