Jesse specializes in medical malpractice, wrongful death, and nursing home negligence cases. Jesse has been licensed since 1994. He is a graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law, and holds a Master’s Degree from Harvard University Extension School. He was involved in one of the most high profile cases in Maryland legal history — the billion dollar lawsuit against ExxonMobil Corporation which resulted in a jury verdict for $150 million. Jesse has successfully represented plaintiffs in medical negligence cases, such as: the failure to timely diagnose a misplaced endotracheal tube resulting in hypoxic brain injury ($14 million settlement), and negligent perforation of the carotid artery during the attempted removal of a brain tumor resulting in left hemiparesis, cerebral herniation, and seizure disorder ($9 million settlement).  Jesse successfully argued the case of Transcare Maryland, Inc., et al. v. Bryson Murray, et al., 431 Md. 225 (2013), at the Court of Appeals, whose ruling set a precedent in Maryland by holding that the Good Samaritan Act and the Fire and Rescue Act did not provide immunity to a commercial ambulance company.
