Civil Litigation

At Stein Sperling, we are trial attorneys who enjoy the challenge of the courtroom.

The attorneys who make up our Civil Litigation practice are experienced and well tested, representing clients at the federal and state levels in trial and appellate courts, as well as before administrative agencies and boards of appeal. When other avenues to resolve a dispute have failed, we are prepared to aggressively pursue judicial relief in the courts or defend any claims brought against our clients.

As litigators who have earned a reputation for creative and effective representation, we tailor our strategies to both our clients’ needs and the changing dynamics of each case. Our attorneys work closely with clients to define the “end goal” so as not to unnecessarily prolong litigation. It is an approach that defines success not only as coming out on top, but doing so in the most efficient and cost-effective ways possible.

We strive to be the most prepared litigators in the courtroom. Our attorneys consider every fact and facet of a case when designing clients’ litigation strategies and approaches. We communicate very closely with our clients and each other in order to establish a sound base of knowledge, efficiently allocate resources and quickly respond to new developments in clients’ cases. Our focus on preparation plays a major role in Stein Sperling’s successful trial record handling fact-driven cases in complex civil litigation matters.

Representative Matters

After a Circuit Court Judge appointed him as Successor Special Administrator, senior litigation principal David C. Driscoll, Jr. successfully defended a Petition to Caveat in a jury trial in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. The petition was filed by certain heirs who challenged the validity of the amendment to a Last Will and Testament. Mr. Driscoll acted both as the appointed administrator of the estate and as the attorney for the litigation. Stein Sperling provided representation to the Estate through the skill and experience of its Estates and Trusts department and members of its Civil Litigation team.

We look for creative ways to address clients' needs, placing them in a position of strength.
