Garrett County

Garrett County, the westernmost county in Maryland, sits below the Mason-Dixon line. Invisible to most of Maryland, this county is an outdoor enthuasists delight. It is also bigger than most people realize, with about 30,000 residents.

This county has historically been a conservative jurisdiction for civil tort claims. But the sampling size of jury verdicts is very small. There are not a lot of jury trials in Garrett County. In fact, no one can remember a malpractice verdict ever in Garrett County.

But we believe can get great results with an Oakland jury in serious cases. The county is not much different from Allegany. The juries are essentially the same breed of people. They may not throw money around carelessly but these are real, regular people that do understand human suffering. If you have a smaller car accident cases with minor injuries, you are not going to get very far. But in a serious injury or death case, you can expect a jury to award fair compensation.

Some smaller cases go before judges in District Court. It is hard to assess how these cases are being valued because there is no District Court judge.

Garrett County Circuit Court Judge James L. Sherbin is the only circuit court judge the county has. But Judge Sherbin just announced in 2014 that he will step down after 18 years on the bench. He will remain on the job until the Governor nominates a replacement. The county also has a special master, Daryl T. Walters.
