Michael C. Lind Associate
Michael Lind joined Ashcraft & Gerel’s Baltimore office in 2010, where he represents clients in a wide variety of personal injury and workers’ compensation cases, including motor vehicle accidents and other negligence cases against insurance, corporate and individual defendants.
Mr. Lind provides his clients with ongoing support and readily makes himself available for their calls and inquiries, as he understands the legal issues in a case can be difficult for clients to understand. Through each step of a case, he takes the time to check in with his clients to make sure their concerns are addressed to the best of his ability.
Mr. Lind has a reputation for succeeding where others have failed.
After their workers’ compensation claims have been denied, individuals come to Ashcraft & Gerel seeking Mr. Lind’s assistance with having unfavorable decisions overturned after an appeal.
His work on complex personal injury matters has also helped our clients secure significant verdicts and settlements.
Presenting one such complex case to the firm, one client lost control of his motorcycle after striking water utility construction debris left in the roadway, then flipped over the handlebars, and sustained a serious neck injury. Mr. Lind persevered through a lengthy and tedious discovery process, investigating and reviewing extensive records produced by the water utility contractor, which ultimately, resulted in a very favorable settlement with the insurance company for the water utility contractor responsible for the debris left in the roadway.
Following two years of practice in the area of insurance defense litigation, Mr. Lind began representing injured individuals and continues with this focus today.
Outside the Courtroom
Mr. Lind enjoys an active lifestyle when not at work. He enjoys playing basketball, beach volleyball, golf and running. On April 21, 2013, he completed the Mid-Atlantic Spring Tough Mudder event, which was a 12 mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to test an individual’s all around strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie.
