For many Marylanders, their most serious exposure to the legal system comes after they suffer an accident or injury. In the course of trying to recover – physically, emotionally and financially – they often seek legal counsel.
At the same time, businesses and health care institutions also are in need of sound legal advice to ensure their interests are fully represented in court.
The 25 men and women you’ll meet on this list are among the finest practitioners in this complex legal field in Maryland.
This list was chosen by our editorial leadership team. We reached out to readers and others in the legal community for input and perspective.
In this list we explore how these attorneys view their profession, what they would change if they could and what they might be doing if they hadn’t chosen this career. We’re hoping to offer a glimpse into the kind of people they are and how they see their accomplishments.
This list is part of a series of Power Lists throughout 2022 that will showcase the most influential figures in law, higher education, health care, business, financial services and other fields. At the end of the year, we’ll offer a special Power Book that pulls these lists together and provides other information about critical sectors of Maryland’s economy.
We hope you enjoy this publication, and we welcome your feedback and suggestions.
