About Semmes, Bowen & Semmes

About Firm

Semmes, Bowen & Semmes is one of the oldest and largest full service law firms in the State of Maryland. A diversified team of 75 attorneys serves our clients through offices in six locations: Baltimore, Hagerstown and Salisbury, Maryland and in Vienna, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Charles Town, West Virginia.

Founded in 1887, the professional character of the Firm is evident in its strong business and litigation practice, its history spanning more than a century, and its deep roots in the greater Mid-Atlantic region. We represent the interests of our diverse clientele of businesses and individuals in the areas of Corporate & Business, Estate Planning, Labor & Employment, Litigation and Lobbying & Government Relations. The Firm is a leader in the practice of Maritime law with historical ties to the maritime industry of the Port of Baltimore. Having the largest private Workers’ Compensation & Employers’ Liability defense practice in the Mid-Atlantic region, our Firm represents employers, insurers, and self-insurers in the defense of workers’ compensation claims before the Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia and West Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commissions. Although our practice is regional in focus, many of our lawyers undertake transactional and litigation matters that are national and international in scope.
