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.

I help our clients navigate the legal system, and get the solutions they are seeking.

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.

Kevin Finson, Esq., Of Counsel

Helping Landlords and Tenants Resolve Their Differences.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts in the Liberal Arts from St. John’s College in Annapolis before attending the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, where I graduated magna cum laude with a Juris Doctor in 2014. I was admitted to the Maryland bar that year, to the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland in 2018, and to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2020. In my role of counsel to Sherwood Legal Services I practice primarily in areas of landlord/tenant law, criminal defense, and as a legal research and drafting consultant for other attorneys. Don’t hesitate to call me with your questions.
