As we reflect back on the prior year, we are very encouraged about the successful year of 2014 that we enjoyed.
Some of our successes were “legal ones.” We obtained some wonderful results for our clients. In January, we tried a very hard fought contested case in front of a jury in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. The opposing attorney wanted $330,000.00 from our client. We felt he was not at fault. After a very challenging case, our client was vindicated; the jury found he was not at fault and a verdict was entered in a favor of our client. He was extremely pleased with the result.
We also had a case that travelled all the way to the Supreme Court of Maryland, Maryland’s Court of Appeals. We won that case in the trial court; and we were also successful in the next higher court, the Court of Special Appeals. Our opponent however decided to present the case to the Court of Appeals and there were extensive briefs filed by both sides. We conducted argument before the Court of Appeals, which was broadcast online. After some deliberation, the Court of Appeals issued its unanimous decision in the case of Thompkins v. Mountaineer Investments on June 23, 2014. It was a completely successful result for our client, Mountaineer. We won on every single point. To read the opinion from the Court of Appeals, follow this link.
Many of our results though are not published. We have negotiated many very favorable results for our clients who have been pleased with the outcome. However, because of the personal nature of their cases, the ultimate resolution is not for publication. We take great personal satisfaction in supporting our clients in their times of stress and difficulty; and assisting them in navigating to the outcome for which they were striving.
Our Baltimore County divorce lawyers have continued to expand our practice in the area of family law and divorce. We are gratified that our client base is rapidly growing. We have in the last year been involved in cases involving not only divorce, but also child custody, alimony and other related issues. Our clients have not only given us favorable reviews which have been published on our website and other online sources, but also have referred their friends to us for service.
We have modernized and updated our website, including ensuring our site is responsively designed, and our new updated website was recently launched. We have received the highest possible rating from Lawyers.com, and very favorable reviews and awards from other online sources such as Avvo.
We are enjoying another successful year in 2015, and welcome the opportunity to serve all our clients!
