Our Firm

"The greatest win for us has always been winning our clients’ trust."

Jeffrey A. Wothers, Partner

Firm Profile

At Niles Barton, the trust of our clients is our greatest asset. In fact, the history of our firm has been built on it. We’ve earned and kept that trust by finding the right, most practical answers to clients’ problems and legal issues, providing candid advice, keeping them informed every step of the way and being responsive to their needs.

Trusted for our Experience

We know how to get matters done for our clients because, after all, we’ve been doing it for a very long time. Throughout our law firm’s history, “experienced” is one of the most common words used by clients to describe us. While a senior partnership with broad and deep experience across a variety of practices is a given, our attorneys’ experience is also gained and maintained through our best practices, hiring and training programs. Our supervised, hands-on approach to training incorporates real cases and real responsibility from the start. This immediate experience translates into extremely seasoned, knowledgeable lawyers who are familiar with both the courtroom and the boardroom, able to jump in and handle clients’ matters quickly and effectively.

Trusted for our Character

Doing something that’s right as opposed to doing something because you can is becoming a lost art—but its practice is alive and well at Niles Barton. Our clients never have to worry about professionalism or ethics when we represent them. In fact, more than half of our clients come to us because of the reputation of our firm and lawyers. The way we conduct ourselves in court and in meetings benefits clients because we establish credibility with others in the legal community, which is another reason why many of our attorneys are AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell, a peer review rating that indicates very high to preeminent legal ability and ethical standards.

Trusted for our Commitment

Our client commitment stems from our roots as one of Baltimore’s most established law firms. It is part of our culture, running throughout every level of our firm. From our legal secretaries to our paralegals to our attorneys, you will know that you are a valued client. Our partners stay closely involved and in contact throughout the entire legal process. It’s why over 98% of our clients rate the availability and accessibility of the firm’s lawyers as very good to excellent.
