Schochor, Federico and Staton founding partner Kerry Staton has been named the 2013 Baltimore Medical Malpractice Law-Plaintiff’s “Lawyer of the Year” by Best Lawyers.
“I’m tremendously honored by this,” Mr. Staton said. “It’s all the more meaningful
to me since it’s based on the opinion of my peers.”
Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is
recognized as “Lawyer of the Year.” Mr. Staton’s selection was based on the im-
pressive voting averages he received during Best Lawyers® exhaustive peer-review assessments, and reflects the high level of respect he’s earned among other leading medical malpractice lawyers in Baltimore for his abilities, professionalism, and integrity.
“Kerry is an outstanding lawyer and an outstanding human being,” said Schochor,
Federico and Staton managing partner Jonathan Schochor. “This honor comes as
absolutely no surprise to those of us who know him best.”
Mr. Staton said it’s particularly gratifying to be recognized for his work with
plaintiff’s medical malpractice cases. “It’s an area of law I’m really passionate
about, mainly because it has touched my life, too,” he said.
When he was just two years out of law school, Mr. Staton experienced the pain
of medical malpractice firsthand when his mother received negligent surgical care
that led to severe brain damage and required her to live in a nursing facility for the
rest of her life. It was this experience that led Mr. Staton to focus his legal career
on helping the victims of medical malpractice.
“I’ve been fighting for patient rights ever since,” Mr. Staton said. “I’m humbled my peers think I’ve been successful.“
