When a problem arises that you cannot solve alone, you trust a trained professional to help. Whether in the healthcare, legal, insurance, accounting or another field, these professionals are bound by a standard of ethics and owe you a particular level of care. When they violate that standard of care and cause any kind of harm to you — physical, financial or in reputation — we help you get justice.
Malpractice cases are extremely complex and require specific knowledge of the law and strong relationships with trusted members of professional communities. The Law Offices of Markey & Orsi has served Maryland clients for more than 20 years. Our firm regularly consults with experienced professionals to determine the strength of your claims in the following areas:
We trust doctors and healthcare workers to make the right choices for us and to treat our medical conditions properly and effectively. Tremendous responsibility accompanies any position in healthcare, and even a small mistake can cause a serious injury.
But some errors are not mere mistakes — they are negligent acts that no other healthcare professional would do, and these errors are legally actionable, such as delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis, prescription error, surgical mistakes, hospital errors, unnecessary procedures and left surgical instruments.
Medical malpractice occurs more frequently than it should. Our lawyers help malpractice victims and their families recover compensation from injuries caused by the recklessness of healthcare professionals:
Lawyers are not immune to error. For the most part, attorneys recognize their mistakes and are willing to reach a reasonable settlement without consuming too much of your time with a full lawsuit. Sometimes, however, an unethical attorney may vehemently deny any error or negligence and fight aggressively against your claim.
At The Law Offices of Markey & Orsi in Towson, we are not intimidated. We assist our clients in reclaiming what they have lost and getting justice against those they initially trusted to get justice for them. Common legal malpractice issues include:
Certified professionals are held to a standard when it comes to using their skills to assist clients. When they fail to meet the standards of conduct demanded by their industry, it is often within your rights to hold them legally responsible for the negligence and recklessness if it harmed you, your finances or your good name.
The Law Offices of Markey & Orsi has represented clients throughout Maryland in professional malpractice claims against the following workers:
We represent your best interests in negotiation, before licensing boards and in court in your professional negligence case.
Still, not all cases that seem to be medical malpractice actually are. Contact the firm to explain your issue. We consult with medical professionals to determine if your healthcare provider acted negligently. We are honest with you about your potential for financial recovery and explain your options. We advise you on the best course of action and allow you to choose which avenue to pursue your claim. If our professionals feel you do not have a case, we will let you know why.

Since 1987, when Steve Markey was first appointed to the Board of Directors and was General Counsel to PACA (People Against Child Abuse), The Law Offices of Markey & Orsi has been handling civil lawsuits on behalf of victims of sexual abuse. To date, the firm has recovered millions of dollars for victims and has been able to hold abusers, and their employers and enablers where appropriate accountable, when the criminal justice system often fails. In addition to suing the perpetrator for intentional assault and battery, we have often been successful in holding employers or supervisors for negligent hiring, failing to adequately check backgrounds, failing to supervise, failing to investigate complaints on suspicious activity, failing to have a nurse present during exams and failing to report suspected or known abuse. Most of the perpetrators had been engaging in inappropriate activity for years with multiple prior victims and almost always with warning signs available to employers and institutions that put profit over safety.
The recent case of Dr. Nikita Levy from Johns Hopkins is all too familiar to Steve Markey. Based on what has been published to date, it appears Dr. Levy has a long list of victims, most of who do not yet know that he inappropriately videotaped and photographed gynecological exams. The investigation by the police is ongoing so it is too early to identify all the victims. However, if history and experience are repeated, there will be multiple persons and institutions responsible. The Law Offices of Markey & Orsi has been asked to investigate possible claims against Dr. Levy and others. While Dr. Levy can no longer be held criminally responsible because he committed suicide, the victims will be able to pursue his estate and anyone or institution with culpability.
