Upon graduation from the Albany Law School of Union University in 1993, Ms. Herzog returned to her hometown of Buffalo, New York, where she became an experienced trial attorney, representing plaintiffs in personal injury matters and injured workers in workers’ compensation disputes.

She practiced throughout all of the Western New York State courts and the United States District Court for Western New York and had a significant civil appeal practice in the Appellate Division for the Fourth Judicial Department.

Ms. Herzog remains admitted to practice in New York.

In 2000, Ms. Herzog relocated to Baltimore, where she refocused her practice to specialize in all aspects of the defense of civil liability claims, including medical malpractice, premises liability, auto negligence, and toxic tort matters. She remains an active trial attorney and has extensive experience in successfully defending her clients in the Maryland Circuit courts and District courts as well as the United States District Court for Maryland and the District of Columbia.
