Maryland Legal Malpractice Attorney

A lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client

In a step-parent adoption case, the putative father was a practicing lawyer.  The father received notice of the step-parent adoption petition, but he filed his objection 1-day late.   The Court of Special Appeals ruled that the lawyer/father’s failure to file a timely objection to the proposed step-parent adoption constituted an irrevocable consent to the adoption of the child.  See In Re: Adoption of Seam M., Maryland Court of Special Appeals, April 27, 2012.
