Fantastic and Trustworthy

I had a very difficult personal property case where the opposing party and their counsel were very challenging to work with. Rebekah was calm and composed throughout it all. She never shied from giving me her honest advice and never led me in a direction that wasn’t in my best interest. She was always available for communication and was very diligent in her efforts to work with the other party despite their desire to litigate. In the end, we worked out a settlement thanks to Rebekah’s professionalism and skill as an attorney. – Drew

Great Job

Recently worked with Ms. Lusk and her staff on an issue with a tenant that required a calm hand to manage. She and her legal assistant Louisa were most helpful and informative. Their actions were essential to the positive outcome.. I also like that her practice offers support for a wide variety issues not just tenant/landlord. – Alexx

Highly Recommended

Thank you for giving it your all! Your dedication on the scene and behind the scenes came to life yesterday in the courtroom. The preparations of materials, the passion of which the case was delivered, and quick thinking on your feet were so impressive. Throughout our entire time working together, we felt like we were your only clients, or at least your “favorite child” – that is what we believe sets your firm apart from all the rest. Brava! – Heather

Extremely Satisfied

Rebekah’s experience in the courtroom is stellar. She has the utmost respect for the court and its proceedings. As a bystander, it was amazing to watch Rebekah skillfully battle the opponent while pleading our case to the court. Rebekah’s diligence paid off, and we won the exhaustive battle! We will continue to use Rebekah at Lusk Law. Her staff members are also amazing and extremely supportive. We highly recommend Rebekah and the Lusk Law Firm. – Karen

Superb Legal Counsel

I highly recommend Rebekah Lusk. She offered superb legal counsel and advice on our landlord tenant issue. She was professional but also relatable. When our case went to trial she represented us even better than we could have expected and won the case. In a field that is hard to find someone you feel like you can fully trust, she is a standout. Would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in need of a lawyer. If there was an option to give her more than 5 stars I would without hesitation. – Janet

Trial & Appellate Litigation

If you’ve been named as a defendant in a lawsuit, or you need to file a claim against another party, you’ll need an experienced, tenacious lawyer in your corner for the best chance of emerging with a good result.

During your initial consultation, we’ll examine the facts of your case to decide on the best course of action and determine whether litigation is necessary. Once legal proceedings have begun, we’ll get to work on building the strongest possible case in your favor, gathering as much relevant evidence as possible during the discovery process.

Being involved in litigation doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have to appear in front of a judge and jury; most of the time, we’re able to craft agreed settlements with opposing parties during pre-trial negotiations. However, if there’s no acceptable compromise to be found, we won’t hesitate to fight your case in the courtroom.

Business Law

Our business law practice focuses on the requirements of Maryland’s local communities. Our lawyers have been involved in small business in the area for decades, so we know exactly what makes local commerce tick, and we’re familiar with all the common headaches that can arise.

Whether you’re looking to expand or sell your business, incorporate a new company, settle a property-related issue, or deal with an employment dispute, we can help.

Landlord & Tenant Law

Renting a residential or commercial property from a landlord can often throw up legal issues. Say there’s a major problem with the building you’re occupying, and your landlord refuses to fix it. What can you do? Without a knowledgeable attorney on your side, you won’t have many viable tactics at your disposal.

Equally, if you’re a landlord dealing with a troublesome tenant, legal action is often the best way to solve the problem. The law in Maryland offers a lot of protection to tenants; if you’re careless in the way you respond to problems, you can end up in legal trouble. To ensure you don’t find yourself on the wrong side of the law in this area, it’s crucial that you consult with a lawyer before taking action against the occupants of your property.

Construction Law

Construction projects present a range of legal requirements. When dealing with construction companies and their subcontractors, you need to draft bulletproof contracts that clearly outline the work that needs to be done and implement safeguards to protect you in case anything goes wrong. You need to stay compliant with the onsite requirements set out by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). You need to ensure you obtain all the necessary government permits and remain in compliance with zoning laws.

We advise our clients on strategies to avoid disputes during construction projects, such as implementing effective project management practices, documenting communications and decisions, and resolving issues through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution mechanisms like mediation or arbitration.

However, sometimes disputes cannot be avoided. We can assist our clients by managing claims that arise during a project, such as delays, changes in scope, defective workmanship, or non-payment. We can assess the merits of the claims, prepare and respond to claims notices, and negotiate settlements to resolve disputes efficiently. When disputes cannot be resolved through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution, we represent our clients in litigation or arbitration proceedings.

If you’re breaking ground on a new building project, you want a lawyer you can trust to manage all this on your behalf.

Real Estate Law

Buying and selling property is a highly involved process. Whether you’re moving to a new home, upgrading your business property, or seeking to acquire a property you can rent out, you’re going to be dealing with a lot of moving parts. Mistakes here can be extremely costly, so it’s a good idea to hire an attorney with a wealth of experience in matters like these.

We provide dependable guidance on a range of real estate issues, including property transactions, disputes and litigation, land use issues, and difficulties surrounding probate and inheritance.

Equine Businesses

Lead attorneys Rebekah Lusk and Steven Bright own a horse-boarding facility right here in Frederick. We know the local equine business inside and out, and we’re familiar with the challenges people in this space often face.

If you’re a breeder, owner, or trainer, or you’re involved in the industry in some other capacity, you know how important it is to work with people who know how things operate in the world of horses. We help equine business clients deal with ownership disputes, purchase and sale agreements, business formation, employment agreements, and more.

Animal Law

Animal law is a niche area of practice, but an incredibly important one. As equine business owners and lifelong animal lovers, we feel privileged to work in this space, and we cherish the opportunity to work with clients who are as passionate about animals as we are.

We work with veterinarians, obedience trainers, farmers, dog walkers, pet owners, and others on various types of animal law cases. We’ll never pass on an opportunity to ensure that the rights of people working with animals are protected.
