Share this story with anyone who believes a jail sentence is a walk in the park.  The criminal justice system is extremely unequipped to handle medical and mental illnesses.  +Seth Price +Price Benowitz LLP
Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands — especially when it's necessary to break out of prison to attend to a toothache. A Swedish inmate serving a one-month sentence at the obviously minimum-security Ostragard facility said he had complained to prison officials about the pain in his mouth, apparently to no avail.

Looks like my body is not back to full speed.  I somehow "forgot" it was black friday and went to the mall for a return.  Got so overwhelmed by the crowd that I passed out in the middle of the mall and caused quite a scene. I suppose the doctors really meant it when they said bed rest with no stress +Brighid Milan +Ed Tayter +Kush Arora

Starting "Black Friday" on Thanksgiving night is creating a controversy.  Is it taking away from time that should be giving thanks with family and friends?  What do you think? +Seth Price +Ed Tayter +Jennifer Mayer

Congrats! I am just wrapping up 4 weeks of bedrest after 4 weeks in the hospital. Liver and kidneys started shutting down at the same time. I survived on 7% body function! Every day is now a day to celebrate :)

Story
Tagline
Maryland criminal defense attorney dedicated to fighting for justice.
Introduction
I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Delaware, where I majored in Criminal Justice and participated in the Honors Program.   I later attended the University of Baltimore School of Law where my concentration was litigation and advocacy. I studied under Professor Byron Warnken, who was my instructor for Criminal Law, Constitutional Criminal Procedure I and II. 
 
Graduating cum laude and winning an award for academic excellence, I earned my JD while ranking in the top 20% of my class.   After participating in the University’s Clinical Program, I became licensed to practice law, serving as a public defender in Baltimore City.  While working for the Office of the Public Defender, I also worked in the private sector for Towson attorney Richard Karceski, handling criminal matters.  I was admitted to the Maryland Bar in December of 2007.

Following law school, I served as a law clerk to the Honorable Joseph F. Murphy, Jr.  When I began my clerkship, Judge Murphy was the Chief Judge of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. During the course of my clerkship, Judge Murphy was appointed to Maryland's highest Court, the Maryland Court of Appeals.  While working on both courts, I was responsible for conducting legal research and drafting appellate opinions, some of which have been published and now serve as Maryland law. 

Before entering private practice, I spent over two years working as an Assistant State’s Attorney for Howard County.  I became a skilled trial lawyer by handling a variety of criminal and traffic cases for the State of Maryland.  I have handled thousands of DUIs, Driving While Suspended cases, Assaults, Theft charges, and many other cases involving possible incarceration.  In November of 2008, I successfully completed the Trial Advocacy Program sponsored by the Maryland State’s Attorneys Association.

Bragging rights
After graduating cum laude in the top 20% of my law school class, I clerked on Maryland's highest court for the Honorable Judge Joseph F. Murphy, Jr. I am a member of the Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney's Association, Maryland State Bar Association, and Howard County Bar Association
