St. Mary’s County Verdicts and Settlements

A few years back, the Maryland Court of Appeals collected statistics on cases in different Maryland counties. There were only 46 auto accident cases filed in St. Mary’s County Circuit Court, and only 14 civil trials. In the District Court, there were 3,689 civil cases. St. Mary’s is still mostly rural, and jury verdicts tend to be conservative in personal injury cases.

  • Miller and Zois is the best firm in the state of Maryland, and without their support, understanding, and just being there when I needed encouragement, I truly do not know how I would have succeeded without them.
