Andrew Dansicker represents employees and employers in virtually every facet of employment law in Maryland, including sexual harassment, wrongful termination, job discrimination, wage and overtime issues, failure to pay bonuses and commissions, failure to pay wages, and disability and leave issues. He has represented clients in administrative agencies and state and federal courts across Maryland and neighboring jurisdictions, and he has represented clients in numerous arbitrations and mediations. While his legal work primarily encompasses employment law, he also handles cases involving nearly every type of civil litigation, including constitutional law, civil rights issues, breach of contract and various tort and negligence issues.

He also devotes substantial time to pro bono matters relating to important criminal and constitutional law issues, including successfully representing a group of Eastern Shore high school students forced to submit to illegal drug testing, a defendant whose farm was improperly forfeited by the government, a farmer accused of felony drug charges based on his use of marijuana for medicinal purposes, a woman charged with various crimes for sending "harassing" emails, and a group of blind voters denied the ability to cast their ballot in a confidential manner.

In addition, in the past few years, he has garnered notice for the following cases:

  • Represented employees in a federal wage and overtime case and retaliation case involving cutting-edge legal issues concerning compensation for travel time;

  • Represented Thomas Perez, a former high-ranking official in the Clinton Administration, in a constitutional challenge concerning his eligibility for the office of Attorney General of Maryland;

  • Successfully represented a local real estate agent in a three-week jury trial involving fraud and conspiracy allegations;

  • Represented various individuals in sexual harassment, racial discrimination, age discrimination, national origin discrimination, family and medical leave act, and wrongful termination lawsuits in federal and state court in Maryland;

  • Represented a New York marketing company against claims that it violated Maryland's Anti-Spam statute in a case of first impression in Maryland;

  • Represented a New Jersey company against administrative charges filed by the Attorney General of Maryland relating to alleged improper business practices.
