Frank Trock began his legal career in 1991 as a civil litigator with a small firm that focused on medical malpractice, family law, bankruptcy, police brutality, and employment discrimination. Over time, Mr. Trock has expanded to have a thriving practice in which he has represented literally thousands of individuals in personal injury and workers compensation matters in the State of Maryland. Mr. Trock prepares his cases for trial and not for settlement. Accordingly, Mr. Trock, in his over twenty-three plus years of practicing law, has regularly litigated and tried cases in both the State and Federal Courts throughout the State of Maryland.
Mr. Trock also engages in appellate work by practicing before the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, the Maryland Court of Appeals (Maryland’s Supreme Court) and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
Two of the more recent reported cases that Mr. Trock was involved in (most cases are not reported opinions) were the cases of Lecronier v. United Parcel Service (UPS), 191 Md. App. 131, 7A.3d 1106 (November 2010) and Employee Retirement System of Baltimore City v. Dorsey, 430 Md. 100 (January 2013).
In Lecronier, Mr. Trock got the trial court decision on the issue of venue reversed. That opinion resulted in a new trial for Mr. Lecronier in which he was victorious and he received several hundred thousand dollars of compensation as a result of Mr. Trock’s work. Mr. Trock also assisted with the brief on behalf of Mr. Dorsey in the case of Employee Retirement System of Baltimore City v. Dorsey. In that case, the Court of Appeals, upheld Mr. Dorsey’s rights to receive a line-of-duty disability pension despite Baltimore City’s position to the contrary.
As a result of his extensive trial and appellate experience, Mr. Trock has gained a reputation as a trusted and skilled litigator. Mr. Trock has maintained an active practice through the recommendations and repeat business of his clients as well as referrals from other attorneys.
