Top Lawyers: The Next Generation

We went looking for Baltimore’s up-and-coming legal stars and found 20 to watch

Kenneth Ravenell comes highly recommended by former Top Lawyer Billy Murphy: “His results are spectacular. He wins 93 percent of his jury trials.” That includes the one in which he represented Murphy when he was charged with trespassing and resisting arrest.

Ravenell’s other high-profile clients have included Baltimore City schools superintendent Walter Amprey, and the Reverend Maurice J. Blackwell, the Catholic priest who was shot by an alleged sexual abuse victim in May.

“A lot of high-profile people come to me when they get in trouble because I’m not one of those attorneys who tries the case in the press,” says Ravenell. His criminal practice also includes white-collar crime, narcotics, and murder cases.
