“Mr. Cornish was very helpful when we had a question about a rental property we were considering buying. We contacted him with a question and soon got a very detailed answer that was very useful. He gave us the information we needed to make a decision regarding the property. We found him professional and knowledgeable.”

“Awesome guy. He really cares about helping the people in his community and the money really isn't that big of a factor. He was willing to take on my case pro bono just to help me out. I would recommend this guy 10 out of 10.”

Johnathon

A Satisfied Client


“I contacted Mr. Cornish with a lot of questions about a legal problem I got myself into. I contacted via phone, and Mr. Cornish walked me through everything. Within days we met up to go over everything and what my options are and what my next step would be. Mr. Cornish kept me up to date with everything that was going on, every time I called Mr. Cornish he was ready and happy to help me. If I could not get a hold of Mr Cornish, he would call back within no time at all. I never had a lawyer that was there for me and would do everything in his power to help me.”

“David is an outstanding criminal defense lawyer. He is an aggressive, highly skilled trial lawyer that fights like a gladiator for his clients.”

Michael W., Criminal Defense Attorney


“Mr. Cornish has been a valuable asset when dealing with matters in Pennsylvania. Clients are lucky to have such a strong advocate fighting for them. I look forward to working with him in Maryland.”

“I endorse this lawyer. Wesley is always more than willing to provide time time it takes to evaluate a legal issue. He’s a good listener and always has his client’s best interests at heart.”

Walter Walkenhorst


“Wesley is a straight shooter unlike many attorneys I have worked with over the years. He will tell it like it is and clearly lay out your options. I personally feel confident working with someone who will set reasonable expectations rather than telling you what you want to hear. In addition to Wesley’s ethical approach to his business, he is truly a nice guy – someone you’d like to consider a friend.”
