I provide a free legal consultation to all potential clients, regardless of whether they choose to retain me. The average consultation will go through your basic legal options and make recommendations regarding your case. No fee will EVER be charged to a potential client. A consultation will on average take about 30-45 minutes.
Credit Cards Accepted
I accept all major credit cards (ie. visa, mastercard, etc.)
On certain cases, I will accept a contingency fee structure wherein I only get paid if I collect money for you. In such cases, in exchange for my services, I get a percentage of the judgment collected. The fee varies from approximately 25-35%. To put that in perspective, for every $100 I collect, I receive between $25-$35.

20 Questions Answered
- Q. How long can a landlord drag out a dispute over replacement costs? Only sporadic responses from them.
- A: That would really depend on the situation. Have you moved out already and this is in regards to the security deposit or are you still living there? If you have moved out, then generally the Landlord has 45 days from the date you vacate to either return the security deposit or send you a security deposit disposition letter.
- Q. I was evicted from a MD property in December 2015. The property owner is now trying to sue me in 2020 for unpaid rent
- A: Yes, there is a statute of limitations. However, that only applies to time to file, not overall. For instance, if they filed suit against you in 2017, but only just now got you served, they would still be able to move forward. You will need to check whether or not the suit was filed within that 3 year limit. Good luck!
- Q. How can a landlord send me to collections, for repairs to property after I have moved out, after living there over 8 yer
- A: It would depend on what the damages he claimed were. If they were ordinary wear and tear, which it sounds like it might be given the length of the tenancy, then no, he cannot hold you accountable for it. If it was for damages beyond ordinary wear and tear (ie. put your fist through the drywall, etc.), then yes, he could withhold it. Regarding the security deposit, he had to send you an itemized letter explaining why he withheld it. If he didn't, you can attempt to make use of MD Real Property Art. 8-203. Hope that helps!
