Humphreys, McLaughlin & McAleer, LLC
Firm Profile and History
Humphreys, McLaughlin & McAleer, LLC, has a long history of practice in Maryland and the District of Columbia. Originally founded by the late Robert L. Humphreys, Jr. and the Honorable Jeffrey C. Herwig in March of 1991, the firm was then named Herwig & Humphreys, LLP. After founding the firm as a two-member entity in 1991, their vision was to assemble a small group of exceptionally skilled litigators concentrating in the field of workers’ compensation defense of Maryland and the District of Columbia, as well as claims under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act.
While building on an already well-established reputation for integrity and competence, Mr. Humphreys co-authored the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Handbook (Michie, ed. 1993) with the late and Honorable Richard P. Gilbert, Chief Judge of the Court of Special Appeals. Mr. Lance G. Montour has continued in Mr. Humphreys' foot steps and is a contributor and reviser for the recently published Third Edition of the Handbook.
With the appointment in 2006 of Mr. Herwig to the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission, the firm became known as Humphreys, McLaughlin & McAleer, LLC. Since then Humphreys, McLaughlin & McAleer has expanded. The firm now consists of 11 attorneys and the legal practice area has grown to include: employer's liability; insurance disputes; personal injury liability and general civil liability defense, as well as other areas of civil litigation. With an average of 15 years experience per attorney, our goal is to use that experience and knowledge to represent and promote the interests of the Employers and Insurance Carriers in both Maryland and the District of Columbia.
