Maryland Civil Litigation Attorney George E. Meng

Experience, excellence and integrity in the courtroom

 

George E. Meng has built a solid reputation as an aggressive attorney with knowledge in multiple areas of civil law. He has decades of experience in trials before judges and juries, as well as appeals, mediations and arbitrations. Mr. Meng has helped many individuals for over 45 years.

A military engineer with a disciplined mind

Mr. Meng graduated from the Catholic University of America with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree, majoring in Space Science and Applied Physics. In his six years at Westinghouse, he worked with the U.S. Navy on the radar and weapons control systems for the Phantom F4-J aircraft. During that time, he deployed to the Mediterranean on the USS Independence and to the combat zone in Southeast Asia on the USS Enterprise. He returned to Catholic University for law school, taking classes in the evenings. Mr. Meng received his Juris Doctorate after three and a half years, graduating in 1973 in the top 10 percent of his class and as Comment Editor on the Law Review

A dedicated lawyer with a passion for litigation

Mr. Meng’s legal career began in 1972, when he clerked for Judge Alfred L. Scanlan, a Maryland Court of Special Appeals judge. In 1973, he joined the law firm of Pitrof & Starkey as an associate. In 1979 Mr. Meng became a sole practitioner and in 1983 he formed a law firm with three other lawyers to become Greenan, Walker, Steuart & Meng. Thereafter, he was the senior partner for Meng & Urey, LLC and Meng & Alpert, LLC. In 2010, he returned to sole practice and moved from his long-time Upper Marlboro location to Prince Frederick.

A focus on estate, trust and real property litigation

Since 1973, Mr. Meng has practiced estate and trust law. In his early career he focused on family law — primarily divorce and custody litigation — followed by an emphasis on personal injury insurance defense. In 2001, Mr. Meng shifted his focus to estate, trust and real property litigation. This was a natural transition, as family law and estate law share the dynamics of handling family members under significant emotional strain.

Technically skilled and recognized for his achievements

In the early 1980s, Mr. Meng became one of the first lawyers to implement computers in the practice of law. He was the first lawyer in Maryland to use LexisNexis CDROM research and also the first lawyer in Maryland to electronically transmit a court pleading to a Maryland State court. His technological proficiency makes him more efficient and lowers costs for you.

Mr. Meng has held an AV® Preeminent Peer Review RatingSM from Martindale-Hubbell® for over 25 years and is listed in their Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. He carries a Superb rating of 10 out of 10 with Avvo. He has been included in Super Lawyers and is in the top 100 for 2018 Maryland Super Lawyers.

Committed to the integrity of the legal profession

In the 1970s, Mr. Meng was co-founder of a formal bar organization for lawyers in need of assistance due to emotional, substance abuse and other practice problems. It was one of the first such organizations in the United States. Since early in his practice he has been involved with ethical matters as a member of various panels, commissions and review boards.

I hold my integrity as most important. My ability to communicate in an honest, straightforward and complete way is a close second. —George E. Meng
