Medical Malpractice Lawyers: Maryland and Washington D.C.
We understand what it means when a loved one places their trust in a medical provider only to have that trust silenced by a serious medical mistake. Robinson & Associates, accepting medical negligence cases in Maryland and Washington DC, can help. Our experienced team of medical malpractice attorneys proudly distinguish themselves by years of defending Maryland's hospital and physicians.
We are serious about the relentless pursuit of justice for victims of medical malpractice; we invest heavily in our medical resources and have the benefit of a Board Certified surgeon on staff, working directly with our attorneys, to provide expert medical support and opinions. This is important because the defense will always have a variety of doctors at their disposal, thus it is crucial to have knowledgeable medical staff on hand to properly advise and advance our client's cases.
Our malpractice trial attorneys have extensive experience, both pursuing and defending medical negligence claims. The importance of knowing the defense playbook simply cannot be overstated. Knowing the defense trial tactics can mean the difference between whether your malpractice case is won and justice is served, or whether the case is lost and there is no recovery of desperately needed resources. Mr. Stecco, of Counsel to Robinson & Associates, formally in-house counsel at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore together with Roxanne Ward, Of Counsel, have defended a number of Maryland's hospitals including Union Memorial, Good Samaritan, Holy Cross and the Washington Hospital Center.
Rest assured our experienced and friendly trial team will meet with you face to face and answer all your questions, at no charge, in a comfortable and confidential environment. Our malpractice attorneys handle each case we accept; we do not refer your case out to other unaffiliated firms like so many other lawyers do. We understand medical negligence cases are intensely personal matters with life changing ramifications; that is why we invest heavily in our resources and maintain a high level of experienced professionals.
Contact us so we can immediately provide answers to your questions such as:
- What to do about mounting medical bills associated with a negligent and harmful medical procedure,

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all you did for me and my family. We always appreciated your patience, courtesy and compassion. We were fortunate to be your clients. My health has steadily improved and I am just about back to normal. We are also fortunate to think of you as our friend.
I felt the need to send you a note of gratitude for your excellence and professionalism in the handling of my case. Prior to contacting you about the loss of my darling daughter I was in such a low place and my heart was heavy, you lifted me up. Your assurance and commitment was truly what Ineeded to move forward in a positive way. There is a light at the end of the tunnel for me right now and how bright it shines. I will always remember you and would recommend your services to any and all individuals that have encountered the unfortunate circumstances in life that I have experienced. Again, thank you so much.
The attorneys at Robinson & Associates were very personable while at the same time clearly demonstrated and in depth understanding of the medical issues in our case. It is true their experience and on staff medical personnel really do set them head and shoulders above other malpractice attorneys.
There are quite a few malpractice lawyers on the Internet. We did not know who to choose or where to begin. I saw that Robinson & Associates experience included medical malpractice defense gleaned from Johns Hopkins. That was just the vote of confidence that we needed . Thank you .
Mr. Stecco was warm and caring with an interest in what I was saying. I would recommend Mr. Stecco to family, friends and colleagues
This is the most important question to ask. These cases are extremely technical, medically intensive, high stakes litigation. Often times cases are in the millions of dollars and malpractice insurance companies will do whatever they can to avoid having to take responsibility to pay the claim of an injured victim and their family. Robinson and Associates is acutely aware of how the insurance companies and malpractice defense lawyers operate because our chief malpractice counsel spent years assisting in the defense of doctors and hospitals. This unique experience and insight allows our legal team to provide a level of performance which is largely unparalleled by other law firms. The importance of a keen and thorough understanding of both sides of the medical malpractice playing field cannot be overstated. Unlike many law offices, you may rest assured that when our legal team accepts your medical malpractice case, we will not refer your case to another office to handle; instead we will personally apply our extensive resources to bring your case to a successful resolution.
Most malpractice lawyers only know one side of the case, few have had the opportunity and experience to work on the defense side. Our chief counsel served as in-house defense counsel for the world renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. For years, Mr. Stecco assisted in the successful defense of the hospital as well as the doctors and nurses in medical malpractice cases. He has also litigated defense cases for one of Maryland's largest defense law firms and worked for Maryland's largest medical malpractice insurance carrier. He now brings that extensive knowledge to each case we accept on behalf of injured victims and their families.
Malpractice insurance companies are a completely different breed of insurance carrier. The claims handlers are highly trained and have a thorough knowledge of medicine. They deal with large and significant injuries as a result of malpractice claims every day. They also deal with attorneys trying to obtain settlements on questionable or meritless claims; consequently, the insurance companies can be difficult to deal with. Remember, often times there are millions of dollars at stake on a given medical injury or death and the insurance company is not in the business of giving money away; they will fight hard to win every claim whether their doctor was negligent in his treatment or not. Two things become important: Does the insurance company know the attorney involved in the case and does the company have a level of trust with that attorney? At Robinson & Associates, our lead malpractice attorney worked for years at Maryland's largest medical malpractice insurance carrier.
Malpractice cases are complicated and require a specialized knowledge of medicine, what medical resources do you have available?
Our attorneys have spent decades helping victims of medical negligence and malpractice claims. Robinson & Associates has had two different cases resulting in some of the largest verdicts recorded in their respective counties. We have an in-house surgeon on staff to review our cases alongside our attorneys in order to provide our clients timely and intelligent feedback on their case. We provide our clients unparalleled experience, in-house medical staff and the resources to successfully pursue malpractice cases on behalf of our clients. Our team of experienced attorneys and medical professionals accepts cases in Maryland and Washington D.C. We also accept cases in other states on a case by case basis.
Many malpractice clients switch to Robinson and Associates after starting their case elsewhere indicating that they never had the opportunity to meet with their attorney, that their case was referred to an entirely different law office for handling or that they could not get a return phone call from their lawyer. We do not believe this is any way to prepare a malpractice case or to build a strong trust relationship with our clients. When you come in to discuss your case, you will meet with an attorney in that meeting. When your case is accepted, you will have a contact phone number and email address and you will know who is responsible for your case; you will always get a return phone call. We recognize and understand that a malpractice case is an intensely personal matter with serious ramifications to you and your family; we treat each client with that in mind.
