Walter Laake's Retirement

December 16th, 2019

After more than four decades of serving his clients in the Washington, D.C., area, one of our founding partners, Walter Laake has decided to retire from the practice of law effective October 30, 2019.

As one of the area’s preeminent personal injury lawyers over the years, Walter won sizeable verdicts for countless individuals who suffered serious injuries and helped to establish many landmark legal precedents. He had a very creative approach to some of the legal problems our clients faced.

He served as the managing director of our Firm, for many years. In his spare time, he served as Prince George’s County Bar Association’s President as well as serving as President of the Maryland Association of Justice (known at the time as The Maryland Trial Lawyers Association)

We stand ready to continue in Walter’s footsteps and to provide the highest quality legal services to the people of Maryland and beyond.
