Jeffrey W. Stickle
Jeff is a member of the Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury practice groups. Jeff’s workers compensation practice recognizes that workers compensation is not “win/lose,” but more of a collaborative effort between the sides. Consequently, he is able to comfortably represent claimants, employers, and insurers and get results for all sides. He primarily represents police officers, firefighters, and other public safety officials, putting to use his expertise in occupational disease presumptions, offsets, and other government-specific issues. Jeff has tried countless thousands of cases before the Maryland Workers Compensation Commission and served as the co-chair of the Workers Compensation Section of the BAMC for 10 years. Jeff has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of his injured clients, including over $950,000 plus lifetime medical benefits for a paralyzed construction contractor, over $700,000 for a volunteer firefighter with career-ending heart disease, and over $300,000 in permenancy for an injured police officer, as well as numerous other reversals of adverse Commission awards. He takes special pride in his PTSD practice, representing and advocating for those psychologically injured as a result of their public safety service.
Jeff’s Personal Injury practice group handles civil litigation, workers' compensation, personal injury, insurance defense, and construction litigation. Jeff is a strong advocate for his clients, which have included individuals, governments, small businesses, insurance companies, and institutional and commercial clients, giving him experience from all angles. These cases have included jury and bench trials, administrative hearings, and arbitrations in the State and Federal courts of Maryland and the District of Columbia. Jeff is a member of several professional associations, is active in the bar associations for the jurisdictions in which he is licensed, and is committed to public service. He is also a qualified mediator and frequently volunteers for the Conflict Resolution Center of Montgomery County (CRCMC).
