Our Team

Committed to Providing Personal and High-Level Legal Representation That’s Cost-Effective

The lawyers who came together to form MDSW did so because of shared values and complementary practices. We have decades of experience serving both national clients and the Eastern Shore communities we call home, and we built this firm to continue providing all those who live, work and do business here with personal, high-level representation. Having worked for years in various legal disciplines at the Eastern Shore offices of a large, regional law firm, we concluded that we could provide outstanding client experience in a more intimate, agile setting. The breadth of our capabilities is matched by our efficiency and cost-effectiveness. This translates into the resources and caliber of legal services expected at a large firm with the affordable rates and personal attention of an established, local firm.

We take pride in the long-term relationships we have developed with so many of our clients and take great satisfaction in identifying and implementing effective strategies to help our new and existing clients grow, respond and thrive.
