Firm Profile

Attorney-Client Privilege

The Law Office of Jason Ostendorf has a history of success in representing consumers. Located in Baltimore County, Maryland, the firm concentrates in divorce, child custody, foreclosure defense, consumer protection, personal injury and appeals.

The firm's owner, Jason Ostendorf, has significant experience with family law and consumer protection litigation. His practice focuses on representing individuals during pretrial litigation, at trial and on appeal.

Jason has served as lead counsel in numerous jury and bench trials. He has successfully helped individuals secure child custody, enforce visitation rights, uncover hidden assets in high-asset divorce litigation, and obtain substantial compensation for consumer protection violations and personal injury, including medical malpractice.

Jason also has stopped foreclosures and saved homes. Unfortunately, many attorneys who claim to be foreclosure defense advocates only advise homeowners in foreclosure to declare bankruptcy. This only stops the foreclosure temporarily. Jason goes a step further and sues the bank for violations of consumer protection laws. This often leads to a permanent loan modification.

Moreover, Jason has handled multiple appeals in State and Federal appellate courts. He has represented parties in the Maryland Court of Appeals as well as Maryland's intermediate appellate court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court. This experience has allowed Jason to protect family law and other clients at the trial level by setting up the record favorably in the event of an appeal.

Jason is licensed to practice in Maryland, the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. He regularly helps clients from Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Anne Arundel County, Wicomico County, Howard County and Carroll County.
