Attorney Profile

The founder of Wallace Kleid Law, Wallace Kleid divides his practice among workers’ compensation claims, criminal defense matters, and personal injury litigation. From his firm’s office in Baltimore, Maryland, he provides representation to people throughout the greater metropolitan area. Mr. Kleid attended the University of Maryland, College Park, where he majored in communications and received a Bachelor of Arts in 1967. He then remained on campus for his legal education, and in 1971, what was then called the University of Maryland School of Law awarded him his Juris Doctor.

Workers’ compensation makes up a large part of Mr. Kleid’s practice. He helps clients who have been injured in a workplace accident or who have suffered an occupational disease and who are seeking the benefits that they deserve under their employer’s insurance coverage. In this regard, Mr. Kleid assists them with the preparation and filing of the claim, strives to negotiate a favorable settlement, and appears on their behalf at subsequent hearings if the claim is disputed or denied.

In his criminal defense practice, Mr. Kleid represents people who have been charged by the state with having committed misdemeanors or felonies. His cases have included driving under the influence of alcohol, theft and traffic violations, among others, and he has successfully obtained positive results through charge dismissals or reductions as well as through bench and jury acquittals. Mr. Kleid also assists clients who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties in cases involving motor vehicle crashes, medical malpractice, and defective products. A member of the board of governors of the Maryland State Bar Association, his successful track record in all of his legal endeavors has earned him an “Excellent” peer-review rating through Avvo.
