Keith graduated from SUNY Binghamton in 1989 with a B.A. in Political Science.  Keith obtained his J.D. from American University, The Washington College of Law in 1992.  Keith was admitted to practice in the State of Maryland in 1992 and the District of Columbia in 1993.  In addition to being admitted to practice before the local courts in the State of Maryland and the District of Columbia, Keith is admitted to practice before the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, the United States Circuit Court for the Fourth Circuit, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia and the United States Circuit Court for the District of Columbia.

Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

I represented a couple who had been caring for two young children for over five years. The mother and father had abandoned the children. The mother suddenly appeared and demanded custody of the children. When my clients refused, she called the police. Recognizing the situation, the police refused to force my client to turn over the children. We filed an emergency petition for custody and my clients were awarded temporary custody. Ultimately, my clients were awarded legal and physical custody of the children.

How did you build a successful practice?

I started my practice in 1995 with a semi-full bankers box of files from a small law firm at which I worked. From the beginning, I have had a commitment to a client centered approach to the practice of law. By focusing on the needs of my clients, I am able to evaluate their situation holistically and come up with the plan that best serves the needs of my clients.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

Someone who is going to give it to them straight. The last thing a client wants, or deserves, is a lawyer who makes promises that the lawyer cannot deliver.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?

A knowledge of the bench and, more importantly, the bench's knowledge of a lawyer is critical. If a judge knows that a lawyer is honest and forthright with the bench, he or she is going to give more weight to the arguments and representations of that lawyer.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?

Whether we handle that type of matter. If we do not, I try to refer the person to another lawyer with a solid reputation. The amount of the initial retainer.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

A brief explanation of the situation.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?

We provide excellent service for a reasonable fee. As someone who has been practicing for over 28 years, I have handled a wide variety of matters and my clients benefit from that breadth of experience.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

I enjoy helping people work through a difficult and sometimes the most difficult problems that they will face in their lives.

What are your other interests in addition to law?

I enjoy travelling, hiking, and attending sports events.

Are you involved in your community?

I have coached many youth sports teams.

  • Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished award 10 years in a row.
  • Mason v. Herb - Circuit Court of Maryland for Wicomico County (11/4/11): Dispute between parties regarding the boundary of their respective lots. Masons (my clients) acquired the property in an auction. The property was suveyed in anticipation of the auction. Herb claimed that the survey erroneous showed a portion of her property as being that of the Masons. Herb alleged that she had acquired the property through adverse possession. Herb had installed a fence and bushes along the line that she alleged was the correct lot line. Masons filed suit to have the fence and bushes removed. Herb countersued alleging that the court should award her title to the disputed parcel. After a two day trial, the court ruled in favor of the Masons (my clients) on all claims.
