Whether it's an auto accident injury claim or a criminal matter, each legal case has two sides. This is the very nature of our adversarial system of justice.

When you choose me as your lawyer, you will always talk to me. I will be the attorney handling all legal aspects of your case. Your file will be administered by me, not by someone you have never met. When we meet, we will discuss the nature of your case. I will then give you my opinions, explain your options, and recommend strategies to achieve the best possible outcome.

Experienced College Park and Gaithersburg College Student Defense Attorney
The Law Offices of Steven M. Jacoby have represented student clients at the University of Maryland College Park for more than 37 years. As an alumnus of UMCP and with my main office in College Park, I bring a uniquely personal and professional outlook to representing college students accused of misconduct.
I have appeared on behalf of students, in Judicial Board and Academic Dishonesty Hearings for approximately 25 years. The Judicial Board process at UMCP is daunting and frightening to both students and their families. If you are charged with violations of the Code of Student Conduct, the Residence Hall Contract, or the Honor Code (academic dishonesty), I can advise and assist you. Some of these charges may have concurrent criminal charges.
The objective is to stop or minimize these allegations from adversely affecting your entire collegiate experience, as well as your record. These charges may carry the possibility of expulsion, suspension, termination of your housing, and other sanctions. My expertise, in this very specialized area, has been invaluable to many students.

Jacoby, we are experienced in representing Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claimants, wrongfully denied their rightful benefits by the Social Security Administration. Most people who apply for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income are initially denied benefits. A denial by the Social Security office does not mean you don't qualify. With the proper help and preparation, you can appeal. My office will work hard to help you be successful with an appeal for SSD or SSI.
I can help you obtain the necessary records and medical opinions, file the appropriate documents, prepare you to give testimony and appear on your behalf at Social Security administrative hearings.
