Attorney McDowell handles cases that have been appealed, which distinguishes him from many other trial lawyers. He also handles cases from the start of claim through the appeals process and back to the trial court.  This brings a unique aspect to any trial lawyer in positioning a case for its best possible outcome.  Attorney McDowell has made law five times in Maryland’s highest court, the Maryland Courts of Appeal.  He never stops fighting for his clients.
