Jamar R. Brown
Rosenberg Martin Greenberg LLP
Jamar R. Brown joined Rosenberg Martin Greenberg LLP in Baltimore last month after four years as a city prosecutor.
One particular burglary case involving a defendant charged with multiple home invasions in Charles Village sticks in Brown’s mind. The defendant had an opioid dependency and Brown worked with the Charles Village community association to structure a sentence that included treatment.
One of the home owners whose property was stolen spoke in court about the impact of the crime, but also encouraged the man to get treatment and to become a contributing member of society.
“The victim’s statement, expressing both trauma and hope, helped reinforce in me the awesome responsibility prosecutors have to not simply seek a conviction, but also support prevention and reentry efforts to deter crime and reduce recidivism,” Brown said.
Brown serves on the board for the Clarence H. “Du” Burns Memorial Fund and on the board for his alma maters, Emory University and the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.
