About Us

As an experienced trial lawyer, Eric Stravitz handles claims, lawsuits and trials involving personal injuries arising from car accidents, bike accidents, pedestrian accidents, truck accidents, premises liability, a lack of premises security, sexual assaults, dog bites, medical malpractice, products liability, fires and floods. Eric emphasizes results, personal service, and integrity.

Through successfully handling thousands of cases as a Maryland personal injury attorney, Eric knows that thorough preparation and attention to the details of his clients’ cases results in the best possible outcomes. When Eric takes a case, he works diligently on it so that if it cannot be settled, he will be ready to file a lawsuit and pursue it through trial (should it not settle before trial). In short, Eric will prepare to take your case the distance whether that is a pre-suit settlement, a post-suit settlement, or a trial.

Eric personally handles each case from start to finish. This personal attention and skill is why Eric was rated a SuperLawyer (DC) from 2012-2014 and a SuperLawyer (MD & DC) from 2016-2018. Only 5% of the lawyers in a geographic area are chosen by their peers as SuperLawyers. Eric also has a prestigious “AV” rating (the highest possible for legal ability and ethics) from Martindale-Hubbell. He also has a 10.0 (superb) rating from the Avvo.com, a professional rating service for lawyers and doctors.

Eric was also chosen by the Maryland Association for Justice (a trial lawyers’ organization) to offer advice to other trial lawyers with their problem cases. In 2011, he gave a seminar on Expert Witnesses to lawyers from Maryland Attorney General’s office. Eric taught trial advocacy for 5 years at GW Law School until he decided to focus on his law practice and his family. Eric has been widely published on topics that show his expertise as a trial lawyer (his articles can be found here).

The Stravitz Law Firm is dedicated to bringing each client the strength, guidance, wisdom and skill to successfully navigate a complicated legal system. During a time when most clients are overwhelmed by their unfortunate injury, they find themselves needing to make crucial decisions that can affect their health, their case, and sometimes their entire life. This is an emotional and difficult situation to be in. At the Stravitz Law Firm, each client is treated with the utmost dignity and respect and receives realistic and valuable guidance during every step of the case. Through a one-on-one relationship with Maryland personal injury lawyer Eric Stravitz, each client is supported and well informed about necessary decisions, actions and options.

Eric works with an excellent paralegal, Laura, who has worked on personal injury cases nearly as long as Eric has. The firm also pays one or more law clerks each year to assist Eric with his practice. Most of these summer law clerks enjoy the work enough to stay on during the school year. Eric handles cases in Maryland and the District of Columbia. He will also handle Virginia cases with a member of the Virginia Bar (Eric is not a member of the Virginia Bar). Eric would be happy to discuss your potential case. Initial consultations are free. Contact Eric [here] or at 240-467-5741.

Client Reviews
"Eric did a great job preparing me for trial. This really hit home when the defense attorney cross-examined me. I felt like Eric had given me his playbook. Eric’s opening statement gave the Judge a nice preview of the case and his closing argument just nailed it. The Judge paid careful attention and included a fair amount in his decision. I highly recommend Eric Stravitz!" Brett Bradford
