Jamar R. Brown - Associate
Jamar joined Rosenberg Martin Greenberg as an associate in the firm’s litigation department in March 2016. In his practice, he routinely advises and advocates for business and property owners, as well as investors, on high-stakes legal matters that directly affect their livelihood. In defending these individuals in various commercial, real estate, and contractual disputes, Jamar can help them navigate inherently stressful litigation and develop strategies to protect their business interests and expectations, allowing them to more adeptly focus on the details that matter most in running a successful business. He also assists entities and business leaders who find themselves facing criminal or regulatory investigations, or other enforcement actions, and aim to remove uncertainty and unease from otherwise arduous processes.
Jamar previously served as an Assistant State’s Attorney for Baltimore City, representing the state of Maryland in prosecuting a wide array of criminal cases, including felony firearms crimes and cases involving defendants designated by law enforcement as violent repeat offenders. He also served as law clerk to the Honorable Marcella A. Holland, former administrative judge for the Circuit Court for Baltimore City.
A graduate of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, Jamar competed throughout the country as a member of the law school's nationally-ranked National Trial Team. Upon graduation, Jamar was inducted into the Order of Barristers, a national recognition for excellence in trial advocacy.
In addition to his law practice, Jamar serves on the boards of Open Society Institute - Baltimore, Job Opportunities Task Force, and Pratt Contemporaries of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. He also serves as president of the board of directors for Court Appointed Special Advocates of Baltimore.
