The firm is well known and respected in Maryland for its extensive representation of Maryland commercial property owners in real estate tax assessment appeals. We have been engaged in the practice of real estate tax assessment appeals for many years. Every assessment cycle, we have millions of square feet under appeal. As a result, the firm has saved our clients millions of dollars. The firm’s credentials include providing lectures and writing for national publications regarding Maryland real estate tax assessment matters as well as other Maryland state and local tax matters (Sales & Use Tax, Personal Property Tax, Transfer & Recordation Tax, etc.). Click the "Publications" page for a list of some of the publications.

We represent all types of commercial property owners (REITS, institutional investors, banks, national retailers, manufacturers, the hospitality industry, and more) and all types of commercial property:

• Sports Facilities
• Nursing Homes/Long Term Care Facilities

• And More

We represent our clients in all 23 Maryland counties and Baltimore City, from the Assessor Level through the Maryland Tax Court (and beyond, if necessary). There are three levels of appeal in Maryland: Supervisor of Assessment, Appeals Board and the Maryland Tax Court. Only attorneys are allowed to practice before The Maryland Tax Court. This is a major factor to consider in retaining representation. Retaining an attorney insures continuity in the appeals process should a Tax Court hearing be necessary.

By focusing our practice on Maryland assessment appeals, we are able to provide our clients with tremendous results. First, by focusing solely on Maryland appeals, we are uniquely positioned to know and understand the market. This establishes knowledge. Second, by focusing on Maryland, we work with all of the commercial assessors in each jurisdiction on a regular basis. This establishes trust. Moreover, by focusing on Maryland, we are able to personally represent our clients at the hearings with the assessor, the various appeals boards, or the Maryland Tax Court. This establishes credibility. The combination of knowledge, trust, and credibility ultimately results in a lower assessed value and in turn a lower tax bill.

We would welcome the opportunity to represent you and minimize your Maryland tax liabilities. We believe we are uniquely positioned to do so. Please refer to the Practice Areas page to learn more about the other Maryland tax areas for which we provide representation.
