We are pleased to announce that ten of the DeCaro Doran Attorneys have been recognized in 2019 as SUPERLAWYERS
In response to a certified question from United States District Court Judge George L. Russell, III, the Court of Special Appeals unanimously ruled that alleged victims of unlicensed lenders have a twelve (12) year statute of limitations in which to file suit after suffering injuries and damages, rather than the usual “blanket” three year statute of limitations prescribed by Maryland Courts and Judicial Proceedings §5-101.
DeCaro Doran is pleased to announce that Gerald W. Ueckermann, Jr. and Mark A. Kohl have  been elevated to Partnership.
The Maryland Court of Special Appeals recently considered when a police officer can be held liable to a crime victim for failing to protect them.  The answer:  almost never.
DeCaro Doran is proud to announce that Partner, Christopher R. Dunn has once again been named as a Top Lawyer by Washingtonian Magazine.  The final list of Top Lawyers is comprised of Washington’s best legal talent in multiple practice specialties selected by a vote of their peers and an extensive review process.
An amendment to Rule 1:1 of the Supreme Court of Virginia became effective on November 1, 2018. Rule 1:1 provides that final judgments, decrees and orders remain under the control of the trial court, and are subject to modification, for 21 days. Rule 1:1 coincides with Rule 1:2, which allows appeal of a partial final judgment, and Rule 5:9, which mandates noticing an appeal within 30 days of entry of any final judgment, decree or order.
