After 27 years in and about the courts, I understand what can be done to best serve your business and personal goals. I began my work in Maryland's state and federal courts, trying cases involving maritime, railroad, construction, corporate dissolutions and wrongful death litigation. I've worked in very large law firms, and medium sized firms. Young & Valkenet is built to prevail in any court, against any one, at any time. And you get the benefit of all that experience at half the cost the "big box" firms charge their clients!
I had a debate scholarship in college, and I also played varsity soccer. More importantly, I met my wife in college, and we've raised some great kids. I unwind by studying three martial arts systems and competing in jiu jitsu. I've coached high school soccer in Baltimore, and been involved with my own boys' baseball, soccer and lacrosse teams for more years than I wish to count. I remain involved in various legal and civic organizations.
