About Our Baltimore Office
Sanford Heisler Sharp’s office in Baltimore, Maryland is located near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The Baltimore office works closely together with the experienced attorneys in the Firm’s New York, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Nashville, and San Diego offices.
The Baltimore office is managed by Deborah Marcuse, Co-Chair of the Firm’s Title VII Practice Group. Ms. Marcuse is an experienced litigation attorney who represents employees in individual and class actions in a wide range of employment disputes, including suits alleging unlawful terminations, unlawful denials of promotions, unequal pay, wage and hour violations, and hostile work environments related to race, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, pregnancy, and disability. She has negotiated and secured significant monetary awards for clients with discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims in the legal, pharmaceutical, financial, manufacturing and commercial real estate sectors, including corporate executives.
Steven Kelly is the Chair of the Firm’s Criminal Sexual Violence Practice Group and represents plaintiffs, especially those from traditionally marginalized groups, who seek justice as victims of violence. He is one of a handful of lawyers in the country capable of fighting for a victim’s rights in both criminal and civil cases. Mr. Kelly has a lifelong commitment to improving the plight of crime victims and their families. He became a victim advocate at age 14, shortly after his older sister was sexually assaulted and murdered. His advocacy since then truly distinguishes him. In addition to representing crime victims, he has lobbied victims’-rights legislation before state legislatures and the U.S. Congress as well as provided training to victim advocates, prosecutors, and judges throughout the country. Mr. Kelly and his practice at Sanford Heisler Sharp are committed to giving crime victims a voice in court and our communities.
