Bob Katz chaired and founded the personal injury group more than 40 years ago. The Bob Katz Law team currently has over 25 dedicated staff members, including attorneys and paralegals. Our team of attorneys and paralegals have decades of combined legal experience handling personal injury matters and we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for  clients.  The members of Bob Katz Law, collectively, have been recognized nationally by The National Trial Lawyers Top 100, The National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, America’s Top 100 Attorneys, and Maryland Super Lawyers. Membership in some of these of these organizations is exclusively limited to 1% of all practicing lawyers.

Bob concentrated his practice in the handling of personal injury claims, primarily plaintiff and some defense. His areas of practice included all areas of tort litigation, including, for example, auto accidents, premises liability, products liability, toxic torts, air crash accidents, railroad accidents, injury claims arising under maritime and admiralty jurisdiction, and worker's compensation. Bob is proud of the team he built within this department
