AWARDS & RECOGNITION
Our Winning Philosophy
Readers of the Maryland Daily Record voted D’Amore Personal Injury Law their #1 choice for medical malpractice cases in Maryland.
My Proudest Moment as a Lawyer
I once agreed to defend a young mother against criminal charges of serious abuse to her 2 month old baby. She was desperate for help and could not afford a lawyer. Because of the abuse allegations, her baby and her other two children had been taken from her home and put into foster care. I fought the case at various levels for 18 months. Along the way we were able to show the State that the child had an undiagnosed medical condition that had been mistaken for child abuse.
I will never forget the day I received the phone call informing me that we had prevailed on every front. The criminal charges were dismissed, the abuse allegations were vacated, and the children were all returned home in time for Christmas!
Meet Paul M. D’Amore
Paul received a Bachelor of Science degree in business finance from Boston University’s School of Management in 1992 and a Juris Doctor from Northeastern University’s School of Law in 1997. Paul began his legal career as an Assistant Prosecutor for the State of New Jersey. Thereafter, he spent 8 years successfully defending corporations, doctors, nurses and hospitals in Maryland and Washington, D.C. against claims of negligence.
After a decade of successful practice, Paul decided he would rather help real people instead of the rich hospitals and insurance companies that once retained him. He resigned his partnership at a prestigious defense firm, and began working as a personal injury lawyer serving injured people in their fight for justice against the very hospitals, corporations and insurance companies that once retained him.
Since then, Paul has obtained tens of millions of dollars in compensation for his injured clients and their families. The results that Paul has achieved for his injured clients have earned him recognition as a Super Lawyer, a Top 100 Trial Lawyer and Life Membership in the Million Dollar and Multi Million Dollar Advocates Forums.
