Brown, Goldstein & Levy provides the highest quality legal services to a broad range of clients, without sacrificing our deep sense of community and social responsibility. By elevating our clients’ voices and fighting for their rights, we seek to bring about a more just world – sometimes one dispute at a time, sometimes through systemic change.
The law firm now known as Brown, Goldstein & Levy was born in 1982, when Dan Goldstein, fresh from prosecuting politicians in the Baltimore U.S. Attorney’s Office, began sharing office space with Chris Brown, a tenured professor at the University of Maryland School of Law and former Legal Aid lawyer. Dan was looking for an alternative to the large corporate law firm where he had practiced before becoming a prosecutor. Chris, who had already argued three cases in the U.S. Supreme Court, wanted to bring the passion and analytical skills he had developed as a public interest lawyer and academician to the legal problems faced by private clients.
Together, their vision was to establish a successful law firm, committed to providing top-notch legal services while maintaining a strong commitment to social responsibility. Andy Levy, one of Maryland’s top commercial litigators, joined the firm in 1990, leaving a large corporate firm for more control over his practice and more work on behalf of plaintiffs.
Brown, Goldstein & Levy has grown to more than 20 lawyers and maintains a thriving national practice in a variety of areas, from commercial litigation to civil rights to criminal defense. Our clients benefit from our collaborative approach and broad expertise, which has secured multi-million-dollar victories on behalf of individuals, corporations, and nonprofits, as well as acquittals and decisions not to prosecute.
Our talented professionals have secured multi-million-dollar victories on behalf of individuals, corporations, and nonprofits.
Above all, we work hard to tell our clients’ stories and retain the same passion, ethic, and collegiality that led Chris and Dan to begin practicing together over 35 years ago.
