Personal Injury cases require care, attention, and dedication to ensure that you recover.

Car Accidents


Slip and Fall

Tractor Trailer Accidents

If you have been injured due to another person’s actions or negligence, it’s more complicated than simply asking for compensation. Insurance companies exist to not pay you. You need a good lawyer to help you get the best deal possible. Experience makes a difference.

Family Law

Take control of your new future.




Sometimes, a partner you had planned your life with isn’t going to be there forever. We offer compassionate support and strong representation to get you through difficult family law matters.

You can find that every detail of your life together is open to the scrutiny of the court. You need an attorney that will help you fight to keep what you have worked for. Your home, your retirement, your business, and every other asset you have worked for could be split up. You need someone that will fight for your assets as if they were their own.

Bringing the custody of children into this highly emotional situation adds to the stresses above. The court will be concerned with what is in the best interests of the child. The parent who can provide a stable, loving home for them during this time of crisis will win out. You also need an attorney that will help you find a path to being able to find common ground, so you can co-parent once again. This firm has helped many families during such difficult times.

Real Estate

Protection for your real estate investment.




Real Estate deals are complicated for everyone. When things do not work out, lawyers get involved.
As a real estate agent and then broker, I understand these transactions intimately.

I’ve bought houses, sold houses, brokered deals, and represented realtors before the Real Estate Board after deals went bad. Being the agent, the broker, the buyer, and the seller over the past decades gives me insight that other lawyers often lack.

Often Buyers need help dealing with “flippers” that cut too many corners. Sellers have to deal with buyers that fail to get a loan because they misled the parties. Landlords and Tenants often have rocky relationships. Rent needs to get paid and buildings need to be maintained. I’ve experienced both sides, and we have represented both landlords and tenants in numerous tenancy related actions. Evictions. Rent Escrows. Wrongful Detainers. My experience as a landlord and a tenant helps me effectively represent clients, whether managing their properties or trying to keep their home. Commercial Tenants and Commercial Landlords have their own special sets of problems. Allow my experience to help you navigate through those murky waters.

William E. Sherwood, Esq.

William E. Sherwood, Esq.

Lived in Baltimore most of my life. Grew up in Hampden before it was cool.

I’m a born-and-bred Baltimorean.

I went to Poly and Towson University (for a B.A. in Psychology). During college and prior to law school, I held many different jobs. I eventually wound up as a real estate broker for an independent real estate brokerage. After doing that for a while, I decided to seek a law degree at University of Baltimore. After completing the Juris Doctor, I wanted to complete my education in business. I am currently seeking an MBA degree as well.

For me, lawyering is about community. I don’t work for faceless corporations and megabanks. I work for ordinary people with ordinary problems. My clients don’t try to explain how they destroyed the economy with a reckless computer program. They try to explain why their tenant should have paid his rent by the 15th. They don’t deal in the nuances of insider trading. They try to explain that it wasn’t their weed in the bag in the backseat. They aren’t getting rich off multi-billion dollar government contracts. They’re dealing with the headaches of a failed contract of sale on their house.

Some people think lawyers are wizards or vampires. Strange, dangerous, and inscrutable beasts that drain your money for the possibility of a desired outcome. And I’m not saying that the reputation is not justified.

But that’s not why I went to law school – I went to law school because I saw that my family, friends, and community needed good honest lawyering at a price they could afford. They needed it from a person they could trust. I hope I can fill that need for you.

A Pennsylvania transplant.

I graduated from Mercyhurst University in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. I also graduated from the University of Scranton with a Master of Business Administration.

I was always drawn to the legal field. As I gained experience in contract management, I realized I needed to continue my legal education. I graduated from the University of Baltimore’ School of Law in 2019. I was admitted to the Maryland bar in 2020.
