Not all cases that are filed in court go to trial.  In fact, most cases settle out of court.  Your trial attorney must know how to negotiate as well as litigate.  At Royston, Mueller, McLean & Reid, LLP, our litigation attorneys represent clients in all phases of trial preparation as well as in negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.  We discuss all of your options with you, including alternative dispute resolution, before you step foot in a courtroom.  When a case cannot be resolved out of court, we are prepared to pursue matters in jury and non-jury trials, as well as appeals when necessary.


For more than 50 years, Maryland’s families, businesses, and individuals have been trusting Royston, Mueller, McLean & Reid, LLP to represent them in court.  Contact us whenever you are considering pursuing or facing the prospect of defending a civil lawsuit or criminal prosecution.
