A divorce or custody dispute can be one of the most stressful and emotional experiences that a person can go through. It is important that you have an experienced divorce or custody attorney that will listen and understand your custody and economic goals, and share your passion in fighting for those goals. I will be by your side all the way, and will advise and advocate the best possible outcomes for you and your family.
Commercial litigation means any type of business controversy that is brought before a court. Commercial litigation matters can range from relatively simple and uncomplicated matters to highly complex matters that take a great deal of time and effort to resolve. I offer clients across all commercial litigation and dispute resolution services, ranging from complex fraud litigation, to relatively straightforward contract disputes. I work closely with clients both to resolve the immediate issue and to help ensure that similar issues can be avoided in the future.
I represent clients who have sustained injuries or death as a result of an automobile collision, a fall occurring because of an unsafe condition on the property of another, construction accidents, or a dangerous or defective product. I will bring the same commitment and skill to bear on behalf of persons seeking recovery for pain and suffering, medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and first party insurance benefits.
The loss of a loved one is a very trying and upsetting time. Although estate can be different, upon the death of an individual it will usually be necessary to open an estate if property has been left by the deceased. My estates and probate practice provides a broad range of services that includes the administration of trusts and estates, and the step-by-step assistance of clients through the probate and trust administration processes.
Many clients think of estate planning only in terms of end-of-life decisions, but comprehensive estate planning is much broader. In addition to transferring assets after death with wills and trusts, true estate planning includes making legal arrangements for incapacitation and asset protection at any stage of life. My wills, trusts, and estate planning practice group is passionate about helping clients to relieve their worries and lighten the burden on their families at a time of later loss.
Have you been charged with a misdemeanor criminal offense like traffic offenses, DWIs, shoplifting, property crimes, and assaults? If you have been charged with this type of crime, you do not have to sit back and take the charges. While it can be tempting to accept the charges so you can end the process as quickly as possible, doing so comes with consequences. I will work with you, advise you, and advocate for you so you can receive the best end result and have a much better future.
I have represented both contractors and home or commercial property owners in construction disputes. I routinely engage in disputes involving residential construction defects, commercial property damage, contract disputes, insurance claims, design professional claims and contractor/subcontractor disputes. My clients trust me for my knowledge, expertise and skill in guiding them through arbitration or litigation in an expedient and cost-effective manner.
I have experience representing both landlords and tenants. I assist clients to both commercial and residential leases in resolving situations in ways that allow them to enforce their rights under the law. Being able to discern your rights and responsibilities under your lease and understanding Maryland law are necessary facets in analyzing your situation and I will help you make a well-informed decision about how to protect your interests.

We had an issue with a contractor who was performing work at our home, including the construction of an addition. We ran into several problems with the contractor, who had grown very hostile, and no work was being performed at my house. Jerry was able to deal with the situation with the attorney for the contractor so that the situation resolved and the project was finished by another contractor. Jerry’s knowledge of contract law is first rate and I am grateful for his assistance in this matter. I highly recommend Jerry to anyone who needs legal assistance.

I had a payment issue with a tenant at one of my properties. Jerry moved quickly to eject the tenant from my property so I could prepare the property for future rental. He also was able to garner a judgment against the tenant for damage done to the property. I highly valued Jerry’s skill and advice.

Having his representation brought a tremendous feeling of peace to me. Jerry was always there when I had questions and I am very satisfied with his representation. Despite the turmoil I felt at the beginning, now that the matter has concluded, I now feel confident that I can get on with my life.

I was sued in my capacity as personal representative of my mother’s estate. The purchaser of my mother’s home brought suit against the estate arising of the alleged concealment of defects in the home. Jerry very aggressive in defending the lawsuit and his skill and knowledge of Maryland tort and contract law was exceptional. He was able to get the matter dismissed before trial and even recovered attorney’s fees that the estate expended to defend the litigation. I highly recommend Jerry and his firm.
