Our Philosophy

As a firm, we believe in giving our clients an aggressive legal posture in the courtroom and the negotiating room, backed by empathy and respect in our personal dealings. In fact, we believe that our firm’s success follows from our commitment to this combination of vigorous representation and meaningful relationships with our clients.

Locations, We Are Serving For:

  • Maryland
  • Washington, DC
  • Northern Virginia

A well-informed client is an empowered client. Having worked for both large and small firms at the beginning of our careers, we strive to maintain the best of both worlds: the power and resources of a large firm combined with the more attentive approach of a small firm.

Our Services

As a client of Mesirow & Associates, you can expect all of the following:

  • A free evaluation of your case.
  • To have your phone calls answered immediately when possible, or on the same day they are received.
  • Never to be asked for legal fees unless and until we win your case, because we work for a contingency fee.
  • An appointment on the same day you call, and to have us start work on your case right away.
  • To meet with us at the hospital or at your home if you cannot travel.
  • To have attorneys, not paralegals, handle your case.
  • Never to be kept in a reception area for an unreasonably long time.
  • No charges for letters, long-distance phone calls, or use of our own copier, unlike many other law firms.
Our Reputation

We are proud to have the highest rating given by the attorney evaluation service Martindale-Hubbell, "AV." (Martindale-Hubbell ranks attorneys with surveys of judges and other lawyers in the Washington/Baltimore metropolitan area.). If you would like a personal reference, we would be more than happy to direct you to defense attorneys and previous clients who have worked with us.

John Mesirow has been named as one of the top personal injury lawyers in the Washington area by the Washingtonian Magazine for the last 6 consecutive selections.

Client Reviews
John is phenomenal! His staff immediately took me under their wing and he truly became like family to me. A couple of years ago I was involved in an animal attack that truly changed my life. They maintained integrity and humanity in every way to properly navigate my ordeal. I cannot recommend this firm enough, hands down. Tiana Mapp
John is a gem and I'm tremendously glad that I connected with him. Wanting to put my accident behind me ASAP and minimize time and energy spent toward that end, I made the rookie mistake of attempting to settle on my own. I eventually reached an impasse with the insurance company but simply couldn't bring myself to accept their settlement offer. Drained by all the back-and-forth at this point, I didn't thoroughly research options (which is, ironically, a big part of my reason for not obtaining a lawyer in the first place - there are an overwhelming number of personal injury lawyers in the area!) and simply contacted the first lawyer from whom, simply put, I got a good Google vibe - enter John. That positive impression was immediately confirmed via our first phone call (for which he made himself available that very same day) and further cemented throughout subsequent meetings. John exceeded expectations in every metric, netting me over double the initial offer despite my less-than-ideal handling of everything at the outset. He answered every question I had with ease and honesty and was always available and communicative throughout the process. John is personable, compassionate, transparent, and very good at what he does! I can't recommend him highly enough - hope to never need him again but if so, he will now be my first text!
