About This Firm

BTLG, Business & Technology Law Group, was created in January 2000 to address the specialized needs of business. Over 1000 clients doing business in the Mid-Atlantic region have been, and continue to be, served. These clients operate in diverse areas of industry, including retail, manufacturing, intellectual property, and other commercial products, and services.

What is BTLG?

BTLG, also known as the Business & Technology Law Group, is a full-service business law firm.

Who does BTLG represent?

BTLG represents businesses in a variety of industries. Although we represent some large, and public companies, our clients are typically small to medium-sized companies, and entrepreneurs. See Representative Clients

Does BTLG have a specialty?

The ethical rules that govern the practice of law in Maryland do not allow us to claim a "specialty". BTLG does, however, have substantial experience in a number of areas including computer technology development and licensing transactions and litigation, employer-employee issues, small business acquisitions and commercial contracts.

Why do clients choose BTLG?

Clients have come to our firm for a variety of reasons, often on the strength of a solid referral from our existing clients. Where they have had other legal counsel, new clients have made the transition to our firm because we can provide one or more of the following:

1. a business focus

2. a more rapid response

3. a higher level of communication and involvement; or

4. a more practical approach to legal issues

Does BTLG handle litigation?

BTLG has represented clients at every level of Maryland's State and Federal courts. While often these matters are small in dollar value, we are often called upon to manage, and take to trial, complex pieces of litigation involving tens of thousands of pages of documents and dozens of witnesses.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
