Find out how Baltimore criminal defense attorney Kenneth Ravenell rose from sharecropper's son to argue before the U.S. Supreme Court--and how, in that appearance, he got a chuckle out of Justice Antonin Scalia.

Discover what assurances employment lawyer Kathleen Cahill can no longer make to her clients--and why.

Read how insurance coverage litigator Jeffrey Wothers landed Lloyd's of London as a client, and why the founder of his firm was jailed by Pres. Abraham Lincoln.

We've got an article on how business lawyer Lawrence S. Jacobs has been helping same-sex couples plan their estates for 15 years.

We find out from three attorneys--family law lawyer Susan Carol Elgin of Towson, land use lawyer Deborah Dopkin, also of Towson, and mergers and acquisition attorney John B. Frisch of Baltimore--how their practice areas have changed in the last year.

Since the inception of Maryland Super Lawyers magazine in January 2007, our top point-getter has been Andrew Jay Graham of Kramon & Graham in Baltimore, whom we profiled, in the cover feature, "The Lawyer's Lawyer," in 2009. This year it's Paul D. Bekman of Salsbury, Clements, Bekman, Marder & Adkins in Baltimore, whom we profiled in the feature, "The Gentleman," in 2008.
