Congratulations to Brown Goldstein Levy LLP attorney Andrew D. Levy on being selected 2017 Lawyer of the Year for Appellate Practice.
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and metropolitan area is honored as the Lawyer of the Year. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer-review assessments.
In addition to the Lawyer of the Year award, Andy is also listed in the 2017 Best Lawyers in America in the following practice areas:
- Bet-the-Company Litigation
- Civil Rights Law
- Commercial Litigation
- Criminal Defense: White-Collar
- Litigation – Labor and Employment
- Litigation – Real Estate
Andy is among a select group of attorneys who have been listed in Best Lawyers for over fifteen years.
Andy’s practice includes most kinds of criminal and civil litigation. His civil practice focuses on personal injury, product liability, and malpractice, as well as commercial and real estate litigation of all kinds. Andy also has significant experience representing senior executives in employment-related matters, health care providers and other professionals in administrative licensure proceedings, and students and faculty members in academic disciplinary matters. His criminal defense practice is similarly diverse, involving everything from federal death penalty and fraud cases and representation of witnesses and potential defendants during grand jury investigations to state felonies and serious traffic matters such as DWI.
The diversity of Andy’s law practice is reflected in the variety of courses he has taught as a long-time member of the University of Maryland School of Law’s adjunct faculty, including Torts, Criminal Law, Evidence, Civil Procedure, Trial Practice, and Appellate Advocacy. Andy has been voted Outstanding Adjunct Teacher of the Year three times: the 2007-2008 term (during which he taught Criminal Law), and the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 terms (when he taught Torts).
Andy is the coeditor of the leading Maryland appellate treatise, Sandler & Levy, Appellate Practice for the Maryland Lawyer: State & Federal, 4th ed. (MSBA) and lead author of Levy & Hornstein, Maryland Evidence Courtroom Manual (LexisNexis). Each year, Andy teaches an intensive, one-day Evidence “Boot Camp.” This year’s Evidence Boot Camp is scheduled for November 4, 2016.
