Welcome to the Maryland Injury Law Advisor — the website of Santa Maria Law Center, a Maryland law firm that concentrates on accident and injury claims. I am accident and injury lawyer Phil Santa Maria.
Whether you have come to this website seeking legal help or just information, I will do my best to make your visit worthwhile.
We handle car accident cases involving serious injuries in every Maryland county.
Look for a lawyer who concentrates on accident and injury cases. They are all we do.
Large rigs that weigh tens of thousands of pounds can cause life-changing damage in an instant.
Over more than 30 years, I have handled thousands of accident and injury cases and recovered millions of dollars for my clients.
From my experience riding motorcycles, I know that riding can be as dangerous as it is fun.
Sometimes cases turn on crucial details. We never forget that as we prepare and present your case.
Sometimes, walking down the road or across the street can be extremely dangerous.
From meetings with you in the hospital or at your home or office through regular reports and telephone accessibility, client service is an obsession with us.
As someone who has ridden bicycles long distances on the streets, I know how vulnerable riders can be.
Our former clients are the best source of information about how we do things. Be sure to read their testimonials.
Careful evaluation in advance is a key to a successful professional malpractice claim.
While past performance does not guarantee future success, we have had many successes in different types and sizes of cases.
Maryland law concerning liability for falls can be complicated. Seek a lawyer with the experience to help.
Although it is not a goal of ours, we appreciate recognition from professional organizations such as the Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
When someone's careless actions cause a death, legal claims may be part of the healing process.
We guarantee you the same caring and compassionate service we would want for ourselves and our loved ones.

Lester and Bonita Robinson

“I’m glad you don’t charge what your services are worth, because they’re worth their weight in gold.”*
“Before I hired a lawyer, I interviewed quite a few, and you stood head and shoulders above the rest. You were very knowledgeable and professional. You also were personable, and made me feel at ease. I would recommend you to anyone. Your services were a 10 out of 10!”*
“… you were able not only to represent me very effectively in court, but also to help me personally to get through some very trying times. Thanks to you, my case resulted in a positive outcome, both legally and emotionally. Your extra effort and guidance are second to none. You have earned my legal business for life.”*
"Because of defense resistance, our case dragged on for a long time. Even though we had a legitimate case, there were times we thought about giving up. But your never-give-up attitude kept us going. You were always there for us, no matter what. You did a phenomenal job! We will be forever thankful!*
Amy & Terry Anderson
“When my auto accident happened, I did not look forward to dealing with the insurance company. You took care of everything and actually made it a very pleasant experience. You were very informative. You thoroughly explained all of my options and the possible outcomes. You were excellent at communicating with me, keeping me informed about the status of my case at all times. And, you got results. The settlement you negotiated exceeded our expectations!”*
Laurence J. Laskin
“I just say thank you very much to Phil and the Santa Maria Law Center for the great help on my case. Phil was very understanding of my situation and was very easy to understand. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.”*
“Before I hired you, the insurance company told me that it would only cost me money if I hired a lawyer. Boy, were they wrong. I ended up getting much more than they had offered me, even after paying legal fees. My only regret is that I did not hire you sooner. ”*
“Over the last 15 years, you have handled a number of legal issues for me, always demonstrating a mastery of the law and courtroom strategy. Most importantly, you have gotten results. I have never lost a case that you handled for me.”*
