The Firm

Trial Lawyers Serving Central Maryland

Shaw, Barnes, Damiano & Ali Schneider, P.A. is exclusively a trial practice law firm representing clients throughout the Baltimore metropolitan area and Maryland. The law firm was founded in 1993 as a boutique medical malpractice defense firm. While still focused primarily on medical malpractice defense, the firm has since expanded its practice areas to nonmedical personal injury.

Attorneys at our firm have represented more than 2,000 health care providers in medical malpractice lawsuits and credentialing and licensing matters, and have tried more than 200 medical malpractice jury trials. Our attorneys have represented health care providers insured by Medical Mutual Liability Insurance Society of Maryland, as well as hospitals and hospital-employed health care providers within the University of Maryland Medical System and Johns Hopkins Medicine.

We approach every matter from the outset as if it may go to trial. We pride ourselves on pretrial preparation, including comprehensively preparing our clients for their testimony at deposition and trial. At trial, we strive to convey to the jury our clients’ superior education, experience and expertise and to make our clients as comfortable and confident as possible in a hostile and unfamiliar courtroom setting.

We recognize and give emphasis to our clients’ desires for responsive reporting of all pretrial developments, cost-effective lawyering without sacrificing aggressive and effective representation, and as prompt as possible resolution of the contested matter.
