Personal injuries can occur in many different ways – auto accidents, falls, injuries from defective products or medications, accidents on someone else’s property, intentional torts – just to name a few. Regardless of how you are injured, and however minor it may seem, an injury will cause a disruption of your day-to-day life and activities. When that injury is caused by negligence on the part of someone else, you may be entitled to compensation. The best way to make certain that you receive fair compensation and that all of your rights are protected is to have aggressive, qualified and experienced legal representation.
Mike Epstein has been representing personal injury clients for over two decades and he knows how to get the best results for his clients. He has extensive experience in various types of personal injury claims – auto accidents, products liability, nursing home negligence and abuse, premises liability (injury on someone else’s property), wrongful death cases, and many more. Depending on the type of case and injury, clients may be entitled to recover medical bills (past and future), lost wages (past and future), property damage, compensation for pain and suffering, compensation for loss of a family member or loved one. Our experience in dealing with insurance companies and adjusters has enabled us to reach successful settlements for our clients, when settlement is appropriate. When the client’s best interest is protected by filing suit, we file suit and try the case. We have tried personal injury cases in state and federal courts throughout Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C..
If you have suffered an injury, you need to speak with a personal injury attorney who has the expertise necessary to explain all of your options to you and to provide you with the type of forceful, aggressive legal representation you need – to fight for you – in order to achieve the best possible result.

Every criminal charge is serious. Whenever someone is charged with a crime, the client’s liberty and financial well-being are at stake. Qualified, experienced legal representation is a must.
An essential part of this representation is having an attorney who understands the criminal system, is able to guide the client throughout the entire process – from the time charges are brought until the ultimate resolution - and is familiar with the prosecutors, judges and jurors in the jurisdiction where the charges are brought. A good criminal defense lawyer needs all of these qualities to be able to give the best advice and guidance from the beginning of the process and to forcefully represent the client at trial.
Mike Epstein has tried criminal cases, before judges and juries throughout Maryland, for over 20 years. He has developed expertise in the criminal courts that has enabled him to achieve consistently excellent results for his clients.

From guiding the client on the best course of action at the outset of the case to negotiating pleas with States Attorneys, where appropriate, to aggressive representation at trial, we are uniquely qualified to provide our clients with the best criminal representation available.
Achieving the most favorable result for our client is our goal. If you need legal assistance in any type of criminal matter, call or email our office so we can provide you with the representation you need and deserve.
When you or a family member are ill, injured, or need medical assistance, you are dependent on your doctors, nurses, therapists, hospitals, and the medical community to help you. The vast majority of these healers live up to your trust. Sadly, some do not, and then you are left to live with the consequences of what they did to you or how they failed to protect you.
