Notes Mr. Staton, “I chose the practice of law as a profession because of a desire to serve the community and to provide equal access to justice for persons most deserving but without financial resources.”

Established in 2001 by The Daily Record, the Leadership in Law Award highlights the commitment and accomplishments of legal professionals who lead their community through exemplary legal service, mentoring, and community outreach.

Practicing since 1980, Mr. Staton has built a distinguished career of legal and community service, consistently receiving recognition and accolades reserved for attorneys who not only win cases for their clients, but display exceptional humanitarian service to others.

Mr. Staton has a compelling list of honors, appointments, and awards. He also serves as a Commissioner on the Attorney Grievance Commission and provides tireless service to the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS). He has lectured widely and has offered legislative testimony on issues of law, medicine, and tort reform.

Recognizing the second-class treatment often suffered across-the-board by the poor and indigent, Mr. Staton works hard in his professional and volunteer life to obtain justice and provide positive support even as clients face irreparable injury.

Notes Mr. Staton, “I chose the practice of law as a profession because of a desire to serve the community and to provide equal access to justice for persons most deserving but without financial resources.”

Recipients of the award are nominated by readers of The Daily Record, bar associations, area law firms, chambers of commerce, and legal and business communities at large. After being nominated, the winners of the Leadership in Law Award are chosen by a panel of legal and business leaders in Maryland.
