Attorney Profile

Suffering a personal injury, such as medical malpractice or a birth injury, could be the most life-altering experience of someone’s life. As founding partner of Schochor, Federico and Staton, P.A., Philip C. Federico has guided countless clients through these situations and recovered significant awards on their behalf. He represents people in Maryland and throughout Washington, D.C., though he has also been admitted to practice in Delaware, Pennsylvania, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, New Jersey and New York.

In 1980, Mr. Federico received a Bachelor of Science from Johns Hopkins University. He then earned a Juris Doctor in 1983 from the University of Baltimore School of Law.

It was during his time playing sports at Johns Hopkins University that Mr. Federico discovered how much medical negligence can affect someone’s life. An injury he had was never properly treated, which brought his playing career to a premature end. The attorneys who took his case became mentors as Mr. Federico himself explored a career in law.

Now, Mr. Federico is credited with numerous successes both in and out of the courtroom, in individual claims and mass torts. For example, he led the steering committee in a sexual abuse case that ended in a $123 million settlement.

For accomplishments such as this, Mr. Federico has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America; he has been listed in The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100; he holds an Avvo “Superb” rating; and he has earned the highest peer rating possible of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell.

Mr. Federico is a member of the American Bar Association, The Bar Association of Baltimore City, the Maryland State Bar Association and The Bar Association of the District of Columbia. He is also highly involved in the local community.
