O’s win! Client wins! Young man with muscular dystrophy enjoys greater independence.

BGL client, Beckley Lorenz, had a wonderful time with friends when he enjoyed the firm’s seats at Camden Yards for the Baltimore Oriole’s 3-0 triumph over the Tampa Bay Rays on July 28.

Managing Partner Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum recently secured a win enabling Beck, who requires assistance with all aspects of daily living due to muscular dystrophy, to enjoy greater independence and reside with peers through a licensed community living program. The victory was a reversal of a decision made by the Maryland Department of Health, Developmental Disabilities Division that initially deemed Beck ineligible for community living in a licensed setting because he uses a BiPAP at night and a CoughAssist twice a day.

Beck’s day at Oriole Park was especially meaningful as the game fell on the inaugural “Mo Gaba Day”, exactly two years after 14-year-old Orioles Hall of Fame Honoree, Mo Gaba tragically passed away from cancer.
