On April 8, 2022, Brown, Goldstein & Levy managing partner Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum honored University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law Dean Donald Tobin during his final State of the School address via video tribute. Dean Tobin recently announced his decision to step down at the end of the 2021-2022 academic year and return to full-time teaching as a member of the Maryland Carey Law faculty after leading the school since 2014.
Sharon, a proud alum, currently serves on the University of Maryland Carey School of Law Board of Visitors, where she has worked closely with Dean Tobin throughout his tenure at the helm of the school. Sharon is also the recipient of the Maryland Carey School of Law Alumni’s 2018 Benjamin L. Cardin Public Service Award for her significant and substantial contributions to furthering ideals of public service in the law.
In her video tribute, Sharon expressed her admiration for Dean Tobin’s outstanding leadership and commitment. Sharon said, “What I love about this place is, it responds. It responds to putting courses in place or discussions in place about whatever is relevant at the time. It just seems that this school is responsive to contemporary life.”
Tobin concluded his address by expressing optimism about the law school’s future and gratitude for the “work, dedication, and care within this extraordinary community,” adding, “I am surrounded by people who recognize that it is our solemn obligation as a law school to use our strengths and advantages as lawyers to improve lives and to lift up others.”
Sharon takes great pride in her role as managing partner of Brown, Goldstein & Levy while continuing her active practice on behalf of a varied client base. She remains a passionate and forceful advocate for individuals with disabilities and their families who confront barriers in education, high-stakes testing, employment, housing, and accessing state and federal services and supports.
Her many accolades include being named Best Lawyers’ Lawyer of the Year twice and being listed in the Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Employment Lawyers of 2020 guide. Sharon serves as co-chair of the Maryland State Bar Association’s Managing Partners Committee, a forum for managing partners to share best practices in moving their firms forward.
