Gregory Lockwood recently was successful in blocking a nursing home’s effort to enforce an arbitration agreement and prevent a family from having a jury trial where their father died from infected bedsores.  In Rankin v. Brinton Woods of Frankford, LLC, 241 Md. App. 604, 211 A.3d 645 (2019), the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland reversed a decision from the Circuit Court for Baltimore City and held the arbitration agreement was unconscionable and unenforceable. This is one of the only decisions in the State of Maryland in which an arbitration decision has been deemed unenforceable.  

Greg is an avid runner, having completed 9 marathons. He lives in Baltimore with his wife and two children.
