About Stephen L. Snyder Articles Philanthropy Home

Stephen L. Snyder is arguably one of the most successful trial lawyers in the country having settled and received complex business fraud verdicts totaling hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars during his career. Several of his victories were the largest settlements and/or verdicts at the time they were awarded.  Most recently, he was hired by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company to pursue claims against Ernst & Young regarding the failure of Superior Bank. That case recently settled with Ernst & Young paying $125 million. Another recent victory was a $276 million jury verdict against First Union National Bank (now Wachovia) after a two-month trial.

In practice for over 35 years, Snyder is the firm’s senior partner. Other major victories include $185 million settlement for the Merry-Go-Round bankruptcy estate and a settlement valued at $106 million in a claim against United Cable Company.

Among the many honors he has received, Snyder has been awarded the highest lawyer rating by Martindale-Hubbell and was featured in The National Law Journal article entitled "The Art of the Win: Ten of the Nation's Top Litigators Talk About What it Takes to Win."

As a recipient of the Baltimore Daily Record’s 2003 Leadership in Law award, he was recognized for his good work and deeds throughout Maryland. Recipients of this award devote time and energy to bettering the legal profession and the communities in which they live and work, and have also served by mentoring future professional and community leaders.
