The Lilly Law Firm is a multi-service law practice based in Columbia, Howard County, Maryland. Established in 2001, the firm provides highly personalized and effective legal representation to individuals who have been charged with major and minor criminal and motor vehicle offenses, those who have been injured in accidents of all kinds, and men and women who are going through divorce/separation. The firm's fees are reasonable and highly competitive. 

The firm specializes in criminal and motor vehicle law defense. Most of these cases are handled by the firm’s principal, John R. Lilly. A former prosecutor, Mr. Lilly has been practicing law for over 30 years and has extensive trial experience. With thorough preparation, hard work, and meticulous attention to detail, John consistently achieves outstanding results for his clients.

The firm handles a large number of personal injury cases – including auto accidents, construction accidents, trucking accidents, and slip and falls. We seek and achieve full compensation for damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We understand that helping our clients obtain all of the medical care they need, as well as thorough medical documentation, are the keys to maximum personal injury awards – and, where possible, a full recovery.

The Lilly Law Firm also handles a substantial number of family law matters. Most of these cases are handled by Attorney Lisa M. Goldblatt. During her 20 year career, Lisa has sucessfully litigated disputes involving divorce, child support, child custody, de facto parent matters and third party/grandparent visitation matters in the circuit courts of Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Carroll County, Howard County, Montgomery County and Prince George’s County. Where possible, Lisa crafts agreements on child and spousal support, custody and visitation, and division of marital assets, so as to avoid the high financial and emotional costs of litigation. She takes the time to get to know her clients and works closely with them to develop agreements on these issues that will work well for them.

The firm additionally handles employment law matters. These cases are handled by attorney Bruce Godfrey. A graduate of Princeton and the University of Maryland School of Law, Bruce has over 10 years of experience achieving significant settlements for employees contending with discrimination, wrongful termination, and other unlawful employer practices. Wage theft – when employers withhold or refuse to pay the proper pay or overtime that belongs to a worker – is a crime. If your employer has failed or refused to pay you your proper wages, minimum wages or overtime, we can help. In some cases, you may be entitled to double, triple or even (in DC) quadruple damages – plus attorneys’ fees.  Please call our office to learn more about enforcing these rights.

The firm also has expertise in preparing wills. A will or trust is the best way to ensure your property and assets are passed to the people who matter most in your life. We will carefully and meticulously articulate your wishes and desires in a will or trust.

Mr. Lilly served in the U.S. Navy Reserve for over 26 years – with nine of those years on active duty. The firm offers substantial discounts to active duty and reserve military members, veterans, and their families.
