MORE ON ATKINSON LAW

There’s nothing worse than turning to an attorney for help, only to receive a mess of complicated legal jargon disguised as advice. At Atkinson Law, that’s not how we do things. Instead, we strive to simplify the law by providing thoughtful guidance in plain English. If you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out. We're happy to provide clarity or seek answers.

If you need top-notch legal help but don’t want to pay big firm fees, we offer free initial consultations for personal injury and criminal defense clients. We represent personal injury clients on a contingency basis, meaning our firm won’t take a fee unless we recover damages for you.

We believe in frequent communication with our clients via telephone, text, email, or through our secure MyCase portal. We serve those who are proficient in technology but are also flexible enough to pivot to those who aren’t as computer savvy.

Whether you are facing overwhelming debt, navigating the estate planning process, or defending a criminal charge, you’re not alone. We take great pride in helping good people overcome legal obstacles.

At Atkinson Law, we want you to understand the legal issues you’re dealing with, the potential solutions, and the outcomes you might face. Client education is essential – let’s work together to make wise decisions today.

With over three decades of combined legal experience, our legal team will stop at nothing to get the job done for our clients. Put your trust in our experience and proven track record of success by scheduling your initial consultation with us today.

HEAR FROM A SATISFIED CLIENT

WORDS OF WISDOM

WE’VE LEARNED A FEW LESSONS FROM OUR THREE DECADES OF EXPERIENCE, SUCH AS:

1.

BE PRACTICAL

Our clients often want to go in with guns blazing. While it might be tempting to do this, taking the time to figure out what is truly worth fighting for will benefit you in the long run.

2.

ASK US, NOT GOOGLE

Turning to the internet for clarity in uncertainty will only lead to more stress. Consult our qualified attorneys, not your search bar, if you’re looking for reassurance or information about your legal issue.

3.

LISTEN TO WHAT WE HAVE TO SAY

Our ideal client is someone who will listen to what we have to say and will allow us to explain what’s going to happen, what might not happen, and how we will move forward.

Why it’s Never Too Early to Think About Creating a Will


With the help of a skilled lawyer, you can write up a will starting at the age of 18 in Maryland. However, when was the last time you heard an 18-year-old talking about creating a will? In our culture, speaking openly about death is viewed as morbid, and it’s something we avoid at all costs. This is especially the case when we’re young.
