Hyatt & Weber
Recognized for Excellence, Respected for Integrity
Based in Annapolis, Maryland, Hyatt & Weber delivers a broad array of legal services to businesses, associations, public-private partnerships, nonprofits and individuals throughout the state of Maryland, in the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia, and across the nation.
For more than 35 years, our full-service firm has advocated for plaintiffs and defendants in court; resolved disputes through negotiation, arbitration and mediation; structured complex property transactions for buyers and sellers; and helped clients protect their assets and families by advising on a vast array of business, estate planning and probate matters. Widely recognized for our extensive personal injury and medical malpractice experience, our civil litigation attorneys have successfully tried cases in local, state and federal courts, and represented clients in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) proceedings across the Mid-Atlantic region.
Combining the Best of Both Worlds
Hyatt & Weber offers the comprehensive array of legal services and impressive track record of success found in much larger firms along with the hands-on, personal attention one generally associates with smaller boutique practices. Headquartered in Annapolis with satellite offices in Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Fairfax, Virginia, we have the breath of resources and experience needed to handle both business and personal matters with efficiency and economy.
Serving a Diverse Clientele
We are one of the premier firms in the area for commercial litigation, business law, real estate, land use and zoning. Our clients include large corporations, small and family-owned businesses, retailers, restaurants, real estate developers, financial services institutions, medical practices and entrepreneurs.
Our individual clients include multigenerational families, medical professionals, property owners and company executives. Many of those we serve have turned to us again and again – for matters large or small – since the firm’s inception in 1979. We are proud that many clients refer their friends and colleagues to us with confidence, knowing our talented legal team will deliver the same high-quality personal service and goal-oriented counsel they experienced.
Both the legal community and clients regularly cite Hyatt & Weber’s practices and attorneys for excellence. We have been recognized by legal directories and organizations such as Best Lawyers, Super Lawyers, Best’s and Martindale-Hubbell, as well as respected community publications that include The Capital and What’s Up? Annapolis. While we are honored by this recognition, we are even prouder to be the firm of choice for all those who have trusted us to represent them with compassion, skill and integrity over the past three decades.
