The Lincoln Law Group
We are a full-service general practice law firm headquartered in Howard County, Columbia, Maryland, with satellite locations serving the Washington, D.C./Maryland area.
We specialize in advocating for our clients in a variety of practice areas including tax controversies, family law, criminal law, immigration and personal injury. We pursue justice valiantly for clients throughout Maryland at the local, state, and federal levels. And we are not just lawyers; our background of a former U.S. Military commander projects the utmost respect at the table.
Any lawyer can evaluate a case and follow its development. However, no one can match the results of the one lawyer who is an advocate. As your advocate, we work to understand your goals and implement our proven tactics and strategies to resolve your legal concerns. Whether for a settlement or verdict, we argue the merits of your case to uphold your rights, exonerate charges, and assure vindication. No two cases are the same, thus, we put our creativity and expertise to work as we tackle the diverse, complex legal arena to yield the best results for our clients.
