The name for business & legal advice in the Eastern Shore and throughout Maryland
Our firm’s legal counsel and business advice is available coast to coast, but we’re headquartered in Ocean City, MD. Why Ocean City?

It’s a one-of-a-kind area that’s home to many of our business & civil litigation attorneys.
While we’re rooted in Ocean City, we understand your business and legal interests may involve another area of Maryland, another state along the Eastern Shore, or even an entirely different coast altogether. Regardless of where your issue originates, there’s one thing you can count on: a practical law firm with a client-first philosophy that understand’s your companies bottom line.

What are your rates?
As any honest lawyer will tell you, that depends. We handle projects for individuals, small businesses, and large corporations. And we always do our best to give you an accurate estimation about what we expect it’d take to resolve your matter and if that cost would be worth it to you or your business or estate.
Many of the legal business projects we take on are flat fees that depend on how long we think it’ll take to get your matter resolved.
We also take on work on a contingency arrangement — you don’t pay anything unless we win the case.
And for some matters, we can charge an hourly rate which averages around $200/hr up to $400/hr depending on the scope of work.
What if I have other questions?
You can schedule a free initial consultation to talk with our team if you have other questions. We provide free consultations for up to 15 minutes, so reach out to our team to see if we’re the right business attorneys for your next project.
