Congratulations to attorney Neel Lalchandani, who has been recognized in The Best Lawyers in America’s “Ones to Watch” list for 2024 in four categories: appellate practice, civil rights law, commercial litigation, and litigation – labor and employment. Neel was previously identified by Best Lawyers as “One to Watch” in 2023.
“It is an honor to again be listed in The Best Lawyers ‘Ones to Watch’ list alongside such a well-respected, skillful group of attorneys,” Neel said. “I am excited to grow my practice as I continue to work hard to provide my clients with the highest caliber legal services.”
Neel represents individuals, nonprofits, and companies in a diverse array of civil rights and commercial matters. Among other victories for his clients, Neel has helped secure several of the largest payments in Maryland history for victims of police misconduct, including over $15 million in state compensation on behalf of innocent men imprisoned for crimes they did not commit.
Nee’s other accolades include receiving The Daily Record and the Maryland State Bar Association’s Leaders in Law and The Maryland Pro Bono Resource Center‘s Alex Fee Maryland Pro Bono Service Awards in 2022. He was also selected as one of the 2022 and 2023 members of The National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 – Civil Plaintiff based on his outstanding advocacy on behalf of his clients and commitment to legal excellence. Neel has earned the Maryland Rising Star designation from Super Lawyers each year since 2020 – an honor reserved for no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys across the state.
