Scott Robertson has practiced law on the lower Eastern Shore of Maryland since graduating magna cum laude from the University of Baltimore School of Law in 1993. His primary, and now exclusive*, area of practice has been the handling of automobile accident injury claims and cases. In addition to the vast number of cases he has handled that have settled without a lawsuit, he has been a lead attorney in approximately 150 personal injury trials, the majority of which were tried before a jury.

During the first half of Mr. Robertson's legal career, he represented major insurance carriers and their insured in the trial defense of injury cases. He also previously represented insurance companies in lawsuits against uninsured motorists who negligently caused accidents in order to recover the funds paid by the insurance companies (insurance subrogation).

Mr. Robertson's practice is now exclusively focused on the professional handling of insurance claims and cases on behalf of those injured through the fault of other drivers. Mr. Robertson and his well-trained staff are focused on achieving the best possible end result for his clients, while relieving the clients of the hassle and stress of dealing with multiple insurance adjusters and the often cumbersome coordination of benefits issues. Great communication with clients is a hallmark of Mr. Robertson's practice.

Mr. Robertson has received several legal awards and honors. He was the statewide recipient of the Edward F. Shea Professionalism Award from the Maryland Bar Foundation in 2004. In 2003 he received the Maryland Leadership in Law Award from The Daily Record, a Baltimore-Washington law and business publication. He received the Partnership Award from the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service for the 2002-03 year.

Mr. Robertson is a past member of the Board of Governors and Executive Committee of the Maryland State Bar Association. He is a past President of the Wicomico County Bar Association and has served as the county coordinator for the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service. He is a member of the Maryland Association for Justice (formerly the Maryland Trial Lawyers Association) and is a fellow of the Maryland Bar Foundation.

Mr. Robertson is actively involved in community affairs on the lower Eastern Shore. He is the 2009-2010 President of the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce. He has been appointed by the Wicomico County Council to serve in several important leadership positions. He was the Chairman of the Wicomico County Charter Review Committee that drafted the new Charter to implement the County Executive form of government. He previously served as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Wicomico County Free Library. In the early 1990's he served as the Public Safety Subcommittee Chairman of the Wicomico County Consolidated Functions Committee.

Mr. Robertson is an active member and past Chairman of the Administrative Board of Trinity United Methodist Church. He served as President of the Salisbury Jaycees in 1996-97.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
