Baltimore City Judges 2021 | Who They Are and What to Expect

Baltimore City JudgesBelow is a list of Baltimore City judges.  There is a perception among some people who are not familiar with the nuances of our justice system that judges in Baltimore City are not as impressive (for lack of a better word) that judges in the counties.  

But actually the opposite is true: there are so many good candidates in Baltimore City, probably because there are so many lawyers here, that the quality of the judges is among the best in the state.  Most of these judges are very experienced jurists who have been handling personal injury jury trials in accident and medical malpractice cases in Baltimore City for many years, either as a judge or a lawyer.

There is surely truth to this.  Whatever the reason, it is something Maryland personal injury lawyers need to consider before filing suit in Baltimore City District Court. 

Our law firm no longer handles District Court cases because our firm focuses on more significant injury and death cases that are beyond the District Court's $30,000 jurisdictional limit. But we still talk to other lawyers, and it sounds like 2021 is no different from 2011. In those days, we would ask for a jury trial before we would file a case in Baltimore City District Court (or find a way to weasel ourselves into District Court in one of the counties). 

This concern about the trial value of a Baltimore City District Court case is even more pronounced in cases where the medical treatment was rendered by medical providers who regularly treat personal injury victims and -- let's face it -- work with plaintiffs' lawyers. Clearly, there are some cases

The case settled and I got a lot more money than I expected. Ron even fought to reduce how much I owed in medical bills so I could get an even larger settlement. Nchedo Idahosa
