In 2012, the State of Maryland approved him to practice law in its courtrooms, and he has served the state's residents since that time.

White Papers

  • Fourth Circuit Upholds Witness Testimony Privilege to Bar All Civil Liability (2019) - The Fourth Circuit's Day decision bars any civil action against a witness, including for intentionally false or conspiratorial testimony, though one can file criminal charges for instance; and Maryland state law may follow suit.

  • Gender Identity: The New Protected Class (2018) - Maryland protects people from "gender identity" discrimination in employment and housing, with gender identity defined as an expressive trait rather than a biological attribute; futher, federal case law under Title VII nationally is trending the same way and expanding under the concept of 'gender stereotype discrimination' as a form of sex discrimination, as discussed in this overview article published in the Maryland Trial Reporter (Summer 2018), reprinted at the Daily Record (July 27, 2018).

  • Failure to Regulate: Governmental Liability Under Litz (2017) - Maryland’s highest court created a new cause of action against local and state governments  for damage to private property if the damage results from a longstanding failure to regulate, the danger was well "known," and so, there arose an affirmative duty to act. See Litz v. Md. Dep’t of the Env’t, 446 Md. 254, 131 A.3d 923 (2016). While what constitutes a longstanding, known danger rendering a government liable in tort to private property owners is not strictly defined, the Litz decision and the facts discussed therein provide a guide (co-authored and published in the Maryland Trial Reporter).

  • Obtaining Attorney's Fees Through Punitive Damages (2016) - Civil plaintiffs in Maryland can present calculations of total attorney’s fees and costs to juries as admissible evidence for use in determining a punitive damages award. St. Luke Evangelical Lutheran Church v. Smith, 318 Md. 337 (Md. 1988) (published in the Maryland Trial Reporter).

  • Revising the Maryland State Bar’s Discovery Guidelines (2015) - This article examined the proposed changes in the Discovery Guidelines of the Maryland State Bar, which since have been approved and published, and some of the rationales behind the changes offered by the drafting Committee for the State Bar (published in the Maryland Trial Reporter, Special Issue 2015, pp. 17-20).

  • Peters v. Early Healthcare Giver, Inc.: Overtime Claims Can Be Brought Under the Maryland Wage Payment and Collection Law (2015) - In construing the Maryland Wage Payment and Collection Law, the Court of Appeals clarified that claims for owed overtime can be brought under this payment law as well as under the Maryland Wage and Hour Law.  The Court also outlined the process by which a trial court should consider awarding punitive damages to a wronged employee, and more strongly consider awarding attorney fees for an employee who prevails (published in the Maryland Trial Reporter).

  • ERISA - The Changing Landscape For Disability Benefit Claims (2013) - In an employee's challenge to a denial of disability benefits under private sector insurance, where the insurer making the decision also would be liable for paying that employee, the U.S. Supreme Court now permits some limited discovery of whether a conflict of interest tainted that decision, when challenging the insurer in federal court, under Metropolitan Life Ins. Co. v. Glenn, 514 U.S. 105 (2008) (co-author and published in the Maryland Bar Journal, Nov.-Dec. 2013, pp. 20-25).

  • Equitable Subrogation in Maryland Mortgages (2012) - A scholarly look at the origin of subrogation in equity from U.K. to U.S. law, and since the 1990s, as increasingly used by banks in repairing defective mortgages at court, to the disadvantage of those less aware of equitable subrogation (published in the University of Baltimore Law Review, 41 U. BALT. L. REV. 709, Summer 2012).

  • Robosigning Foreclosures (2012) - Robosigning Foreclosures: How It Violates Law, Must Be Stopped, and Why Mortgage Law Reform Is Needed to Ensure the Certainty and Values of Real Property is a scholarly article on how the mortgage-backed security industry changed the legal handling of mortgages, before, and especially during and after the U.S. financial crisis and housing depreciation of 2007-2009; with a focus on how many lenders and lender-servicers pushed through foreclosures without proper procedure.  The article has a spotlight section on what happened in Maryland (published in Western State University Law Review, 40 W. ST. U. L. REV. 31, Fall 2012).
