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 2023 that will showcase the most influential figures in law, higher education, health care, government affairs, financial services and other fields. At the end of the year, we’ll offer a special Power 100 List that showcases the most influential Marylanders across the entire spectrum.

You can find this and all our Power Lists here.

If you know of someone you think is a strong candidate for inclusion on our Power Lists, we’d love to hear from you. Just go to and tell us about the individual.

We hope you enjoy this publication and we welcome your feedback and suggestions.
