At Portner & Shure, P.A., we litigate cases on behalf of clients who have been seriously injured in automobile and truck accidents or by the medical malpractice of a doctor. With over twenty-five years of experience litigating personal injury cases all over Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C., our firm is well-positioned to participate in Lawyer to Lawyer Referrals and fee-sharing agreements with referring attorneys and co-counsel.

Portner & Shure, P.A. is dedicated to providing all clients with excellent and personable service, and we treat co-counsel with the same respect and responsiveness.

We have successfully concluded many cases on split-fee agreements and continue to obtain excellent outcomes for referring attorneys and their clients. While the past is no guarantee of future results, we have recovered over $300 million dollars for our clients. In this past year alone, we are thought to have three of the highest recoveries in three different jurisdictions in Maryland and Virginia. Each month we recover millions from the different insurance carriers. Most recently, we settled a pedestrian accident case for 2.15 million, which was referred to Portner & Shure from an out-of-state attorney.

Portner & Shure is committed to aggressively advocating on behalf of our injured clients. We treat every case like it is the only one and commit our time and resources to it. Since 1994, we have resolutely refused to settle for less compensation than our client deserves.

This practice has enhanced our credibility with insurance carriers and has ultimately caused our settlement numbers to rise. In fact, many personal injury litigation departments were closed or suggested clients merely “stay home” or “be safe” during this COV-ID 19 period. In contrast, we were battling the carriers and resolved cases during this same time for 2.15 million, $969 thousand, $750 thousand, and $445 thousand dollars.

The Portner & Shure Team

Our law firm includes highly-rated trial attorneys and a large support staff that is fluent in Spanish, Korean, Chinese, and Vietnamese. Our attorneys have obtained 10.0 ratings by Avvo with results supported by hundreds of five-star Google reviews. We have attorneys who have been recognized by the “Multimillion-Dollar Advocacy Forum,” “Best Attorneys in America,” “Super Lawyers,” “Lawyers of Distinction,” and “American Institute of Trial Lawyers 2020 Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year.”

The attorneys at Portner & Shure are trial lawyers with successful records both in, and out, of the courtroom. Our litigators have tried hundreds of jury trials and countless district court cases in nearly every jurisdiction in Maryland and Virginia. Our strong record at trial gives teeth to our threat to litigate when insurance companies low-ball our clients. Insurance companies, and their lawyers, know us.

Our collective experience, and resources, make us well-suited to handle complex personal injury cases including claims of wrongful death.

Our team is familiar with the defense perspective and use this insight to maximize our recoveries. Our litigators, in fact, have previously worked as trial attorneys for GEICO, as well as in-house counsel at regional boutique defense law firms. There, they defended bodily injury lawsuits from settlement through trial on behalf of national insurance companies, fortune 500 companies, and Top 50 Trucking Companies. Our attorneys have also worked at the country’s top American law firms and Maryland/Virginia’s largest blue-chip law firms.

Our distinctive background includes not only vast courtroom experience but also a sophisticated discovery and motions practice, in both state and federal court. Superior writing ability is a requisite in this practice group. This routinely permits strong settlement negotiations through early mediation or arbitration. We recognize the importance of tireless advocacy both in and out of the courtroom.

Framework & Resources To See The Toughest Cases Through To The End

Personal injury is our primary focus. All of our resources are dedicated to representing suffering accident victims and their families.

Many lawyers refer cases to us because they realize that a case has merit, but it is difficult and expensive to take on.

We have a claims department staffed by approximately 40 paralegals and/or legal assistants. Members of our professional staff speak Spanish, Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), and Vietnamese. A language barrier is never a limitation for us. Our professional staff works closely with our attorneys to ensure effective client communication and representation.

Our experienced claims team ensures that cases are properly developed so we can hit the ground running if a suit is filed. We have the resources to support complex litigation, including medical malpractice cases, from start to finish. We also have relationships with experts in the field.
