Lutherville-Timonium Tenants' Rights Lawyer

Overview

Matthew Thomas Vocci is a partner in the law firm of Santoni, Vocci & Ortega, LLC. He represents and advocates on behalf of low-income Marylanders and strives to provide high-quality legal representation for those who would otherwise not be able to afford an attorney. If there are landlords, property managers, lenders, debt collectors, employers, bail bondsman that are taking advantage of regular folks, Matt and his firm work to bring them to justice. The majority of Matt's work relates in some way to housing. He represents tenants against landlords and property managers on a variety of cases such as consumer protection and consumer debt collection issues, habitability, Fair Housing Act violations, illegal evictions, and personal injuries. Matt has served as class counsel on several class actions, including a recent case that resolved favorably for tenants against a large, out-of-state property management company. He has also successfully represented those seeking wages/commissions from their employer or principal. He is a member of the MSBA’s Delivery of Legal Services Committee Council and the ACLU of Maryland Committee on Litigation and Legal Priorities. Matt also helps those injured in motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, and dog bites.

Matt was an integral part of a trial team that represented a unit owner that suffered significant damages stemming from water infiltration and mold growth in a condominium unit. This case resulted in what is believed to be Maryland's largest judgment against a condominium board for failure to maintain and repair common elements resulting in damages to a single unit owner.

Matt is active in the community and is currently serving on the Committee on Litigation and Legal Priorities for the ACLU of Maryland. He is dedicated to the advancement of a civil and just society and has written for The Daily Record on topics involving those most vulnerable in our society. He has also published opinion pieces in The Baltimore Sun and Al Dia News.

Matt graduated cum laude from Temple University, Beasley School of Law in 2006 and served on the Editorial Board of the Temple Law Review.

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.
