Civil Appeals Attorneys In Maryland And Washington, D.C.

The varied experience of our attorneys combines to create a powerful synergy for our clients. Steve Mercer brings more than 20 years of appellate experience to our firm while Isabelle Raquin has established herself as an accomplished oral advocate and trial attorney.
