Fredric G. Antenberg is an attorney with significant legal experience who has achieved outstanding results for his clients. Fred has demonstrated strong case management and organizational skills through handling over 4000 cases both in and out of courts throughout Maryland and he has briefed and argued cases in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals.
Having an extensive working knowledge of family law, personal injury law, and business law, Fred has a proven ability to advocate and advise clients with integrity and dedication.
Fred's philosophy is always to seek resolution before litigating. Establishing realistic goals with clients is a skill that Fred has developed over many years of experience. Litigating should only be utilized when the other tools such as mediation, collaboration, and negotiation have not succeeded. Often the expenditure in time and money necessitated by litigation may win the case--but at what cost?
Fred clerked in a personal injury firm while attending law school. He worked his way through college and law school in full-time positions including but not limited to: sole owner of business which sold used college texts and books, working in clothing factories, being a Santa Claus in a department store, and becoming both a vocational rehabilitation counselor and an administrator of rehabilitation facilities for the Maryland State Department of Education. This diversity of employment has provided Fred with an understanding of the importance of developing relationships, establishing realistic and achievable goals, recognizing the influences of family and friends toward reaching goals, and becoming resourceful in fulfilling goals. Recognizing that although other persons say ‘‘no’’ to an idea or objective, he learned that it is often possible to keep going back until you finally obtain a ’’ yes “.
Fred established his law firm in 1974 after being sworn in as a lawyer before the Maryland Court of Appeals.
