We have represented those with serious and catastrophic injuries and loved ones who have suffered a loss in a personal injury accident.

Workers Compensation

You will need a workers compensation attorney if you have been injured while on company time, at a company function or on company property. These cases are extremely fact specific, vary from state to state, and have no bright lines determining who will get paid and who will not. We will take your case and make sure that you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.

As a workers comp lawyer, James Ellison has the experience and knowledge of the laws in the particular state where the claim is made. Do not attempt to handle your case alone. The compensation insurance group will make you think they have your best interest in mind but, to the contrary, they do not. They are well paid to not pay you. Only an attorney specializing in your state’s workers compensation law has your well being as their main concern.

Criminal Defense

Suddenly requiring a criminal law attorney, after being arrested for a crime that you did not commit, or being improperly charged for the wrong offense, is more commonplace than you may think. Mistaken identity, being in the wrong place at the wrong time, association with the wrong party and circumstantial evidence are all reasons why a person may be wrongfully charged.

James Ellison is an experienced criminal defense lawyer can mean the difference between having a criminal record for the rest of your life without hope of ever passing a background check, and having a spotless record. Your fingerprints, taken by local police for even a misdemeanor and placed on file with the FBI, can carry far reaching implications: they can prevent you from being hired for certain jobs, running for public office or being approved for several different state licenses. An arrest can come back to haunt you 20 or 30 years in the future in ways that you would never expect.

We have served the people of the Baltimore, Annapolis and Washington, DC areas for 25 years. We would like to be your law firm for any criminal law needs you may have.
