So the question is should a Maryland attorney tell you that they specialize in medical malpractice cases? For that matter, should a Maryland attorney tell you that they specialize in virtually anything? The simple answer is no, and this is because Maryland does not recognize “specialists” in areas of law.
The ethics rules/Rules of Professional Conduct do not allow a Maryland attorney to hold him or herself out as a specialist. This can come to a shock for many in the public, especially if you have access to the news media and other forms of social medial.
Different states have different rules as to this issues and Maryland has decided that it is better not to allot attorneys to inform the public that they are specialists.
