We have successfully defended such clients in grievance proceedings and related investigations.

In 2021, we were able to obtain nearly another million dollars for Mr. Austin as a result of the Walter Lomax Compensation statute. We have also received multi-million compensation awards in the last few years from the Maryland Department of Public Works for our clients Andrew Stewart and Melvin Thomas. In late 2023, with the aid of another law firm, our clients known as the Harlem Park 3, settled a federal civil right lawsuit against Baltimore City and the Baltimore City Police Department for $48,000,000 - one of the largest awards nationally of its kind.
