On February 16, 2022, Brown, Goldstein & Levy attorney Anthony May attended the Young Lawyers’ Division (YLD) of the Bar Association of Baltimore City’s Breakfast with the Bench event. The program, hosted by the YLD’s Continuing Legal Education Committee, featured the Honorable Brynja McDivitt Booth of Maryland’s 1st Appellate Judicial Circuit, who spoke about the under-utilization of the state constitution by practicing attorneys.
The Bar Association of Baltimore City’s YLD hosts monthly networking and community service events, with the goal of fostering a sense of community within the YLD and the City of Baltimore. It aims to provide attorneys who are 37 years or younger or have been in practice for five years or less with the resources necessary to broaden their legal horizons.
Anthony has a diverse practice comprised of various complex litigation matters, ranging from assisting employees with disabilities in obtaining reasonable workplace accommodations and fighting workplace discrimination to representing wrongfully convicted individuals and commercial litigation disputes. He has advocated for his clients in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and Maryland appellate courts in a variety of anti-poverty and civil rights matters – including a case wherein he successfully argued that a condominium association’s restrictions on a unit owner’s property rights is a form of unlawful debt collection. Anthony also obtained a consent decree with a Florida public school system that, among other things, required the district to acquire accessible technology for its educators and faculty members as mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Anthony was named to the 2022 Best Lawyers in America: Ones to Watch list for appellate practice, civil rights law and commercial litigation. He was also recognized as a 2020 and 2021 Super Lawyers Maryland Rising Star – an honor reserved for only 2.5 percent of Maryland attorneys each year. Additionally, Anthony received the Daily Record’s 2020 Generation J.D. Award, which acknowledges up-and-coming attorneys across Maryland.
