Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum is a passionate and forceful legal representative for individuals with disabilities and their families who require services or supports from state or federal government and for those who require accommodations from employers or service providers. Sharon aggressively advocates for special education and support services for children and their families and for developmental and mental health services for adults. She is also a kind and gentle advocate for seniors and their families. Sharon serves as counsel or in an advisory capacity to disability advocacy organizations throughout the State of Maryland and is often asked to speak at annual conferences and training programs. She has served on the faculty of The National Leadership Consortium on Developmental Disabilities at the University of Delaware and speaks regularly for the Maryland Association of Community Services (MACS).
Sharon is equally passionate and forceful in her representation of non-profit and for-profit entities that provide supports and services to individuals with disabilities and the elderly, whether serving as a proactive general counsel or as an aggressive advocate for her corporate clients. In her representation of community-based mental health and addiction service providers, organizations that provide housing and support services to individuals with developmental disabilities, senior care providers (including nursing homes and assisted living), and providers of personal home care and durable medical equipment, Sharon understands and appreciates the difficult balance her clients must achieve as business entities and service providers.
As a former Assistant Attorney General for the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Sharon has built the knowledge, experience and relationships with regulators that allow her to counsel and defend health care providers effectively in actions involving licensure and regulatory compliance. She also uses this experience to represent individual health care practitioners before professional disciplinary boards and to represent parents who find themselves the subject of abuse and neglect accusations by local departments of social services.
In partnership with others at Brown, Goldstein & Levy, Sharon works to provide her clients with the legal talents that will best serve their needs, whether through advocacy, education, litigation, or negotiation. Sharon considers it an honor to serve as a member of the legal community and to serve her clients with compassion and a sense of pride in her work.
Sharon looks forward to continuing to share her extensive experience, passion, and sense of justice with her clients and welcomes others to consider her as their legal advisor.
