Baltimore Civil Litigation Attorneys

Nathans & Ripke LLP represents clients in civil litigation and administrative matters in federal and state court related to government billing, including:

  • Qui Tam whistleblowers bringing actions under the False Claims Act and parties who are subject to such lawsuits
  • Defendants or targets of criminal investigations whose rights have been violated in the course of an investigation or prosecution
  • Defendants who have been named in lawsuits pertaining to alleged criminal acts
  • Victims of criminal acts bringing lawsuits against the perpetrators of those acts
  • Federal RICO cases

Nathans & Ripke LLP has also successfully represented clients involved in state security litigation, non-compete disputes, lawsuits arising from mistreatment in hospitals and police misconduct, false arrest claims, and other personal injury claims. Our firm also acts as local counsel for out-of-state law firms and corporations in various matters in federal courts in Baltimore and Greenbelt and in state courts throughout Maryland.

Recently, in 2016, after extensive negotiation with Plaintiff’s counsel, we were able to successfully settle a large federal RICO lawsuit brought in a New York federal court against our client, his business, and his employees for a very nominal amount. The civil RICO case followed the prosecution of federal criminal charges in Maryland against eleven persons. We had also earlier managed to negotiate no criminal charges being brought against our client, his company, and his employees in the federal criminal matter.

Successful Appellate Advocates Serving the Greenbelt Region

Nathans & Ripke LLP has litigated appeals in the highest courts for Maryland and the District Court of Columbia, as well as filing Petitions for Writs of Certiorari in the Supreme Court of the United States, and arguing other appeals in the U.S. Courts of Appeal for several circuits. In civil litigation, our attorneys have argued and prevailed on both administrative appeals as well as appeals in multi-million-dollar civil lawsuits.

Recently, Booth M. Ripke prevailed for a client in the District of Columbia Court of Appeals in reversing the lower court's dismissal of a $20 million dollar legal malpractice lawsuit. The decision is published at Crawford v. Katz, et al., No. 09-CV-301.
