Meet Your Attorney
Hi, I’m Phil Santa Maria. Allow me to introduce myself by telling you 15 Things about my background and interests.
1. I have been a lawyer for more than 30 years. If I had not chosen this career, I don’t know what I would have done — unless, of course, I could have made it in the NBA as a 5’11” point guard!
2. I am married. My wife, Kathie, is a Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor. We have 4 adult children.
3. I graduated in the top 10% of my law school class and was a member of the Editorial Board of our Law Review. I earned the right to practice before the highest courts in Maryland, the District of Columbia and California. In addition, I have been admitted to practice in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and the United States Supreme Court. I’m even admitted to practice before the Court of Military Appeals.View full Profile
“My wife and I are extremely satisfied with the services you provided. I have never come across a lawyer who would take the time to explain in plain language what will be happening and what to expect. You are really one of a kind.
Esteban Velasquez and Leticia Murillo
My serious accident was devastating and I didn’t know where to turn for help. After another lawyer referred me to you, you guided me through the process to a great result, much better than I expected. You were always there for me… You always made me feel like I was your only client.
Over the last 15 years, you have handled a number of legal issues for me, always demonstrating a mastery of the law and courtroom strategy. Most importantly, you have gotten results. I have never lost a case that you handled for me.
Richard M. Barazotto
We had a complicated case, but your guidance and the way you thoroughly prepared us for each proceeding gave us confidence. Things happened just the way you said they would… We were very pleased with the great result.
Louise and Mike Hotovy
Although the circumstances of my accident were unusual, your expert advice, patience and superb negotiating skills allowed my case to be settled out of court for …an amount that far exceeded our initial expectations. I am deeply appreciative of your representation…
