$356,382.21 Recovered for Injured Workers’ in June

As we do every single month, Warnken, LLC posts, to the extent we can, our recoveries in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases.  See below for specific examples.  Just because one client got one dollar amount does not mean another will get the same or similar, even if the injury is similar or other facts are similar.  No two personal injury or workers’ compensation cases are the same.  There are simply too many variables.

Warnken, LLC Attorneys At Law

Warnken, LLC started more than 20 years ago.  The senior member of the firm, Byron L. Warnken, Esq., has been an attorney for more than 35 years.  He is also a full-time law professor at the University of Baltimore School of Law.  In the early 1990’s, Warnken, LLC consisted of Byron L. Warnken and his wife Bonnie L. Warnken, who handled mostly medical malpractice and personal injury cases.  In 1997, the firm began to expand, with more lawyers being hired to handle the work associated with representing the Maryland Troopers Association.  Since then, the MTA has been Warnken, LLC’s focus.  The past decade has seen the firm gain great expertise in personal injury matters and workers’ compensation cases.


Warnken, LLC has handled more than 2000 litigation matters in more than 20 years of practice.   This includes numerous kinds of litigation and includes trial work, post-verdict work, and appeals.

Warnken, LLC’s civil litigation practice handles personal injury cases and workers’ compensation cases.  We also handle truck accidents, negligence, wrongful death, catastrophic personal injury, medical malpractice, and other injuries or disputes.

Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation is by far the fastest growing practice area at Warnken, LLC.  A decade ago, Warnken, LLC had less than 20 comp files at any given time a few years ago.  Today there are more than 300.

Our comp practice grew from serving law enforcement.  Being one of the most dangerous jobs, police officers and other public safety employees often need counsel for workplace injuries.  In order to serve our existing clients, we gained the expertise.

Law Enforcement

Since 1997, Warnken, LLC has been general counsel to the Maryland Troopers Association.  We handle administrative discipline, trial boards, disability retirement, grievances, and generally anything else active or retired law enforcement personnel face.  We take great pride in the work.
