I was in a car accident on November 1, 2013. I thought that it was going to be a cut and dry situation as the intersection was a two way stop, I arrived at the stop sign first and the other person arrived and put their signal on to make a left hand turn. I was going straight through the intersection. Once I saw there was no traffic in either direction, I proceeded through the intersection and the other driver made a direct left turn into my vehicle without attempting to stop. Due to the impact of the other car, I was injured, had to be extracted from the vehicle and taken to the hospital. I suffered severe spasm to my neck and back and had to endure painful physical therapy and adjustments. Her insurance company denied my claim, as she told them she was at the stop sign before me. I hired Portner and Shure as I knew I would not get very far with this matter on my own. Her insurance company refused to settle out of court, so we ended up going to trial in this matter. My Lawyer, Christina Ruhl, was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Not only were their offices always willing to speak with me when I needed them, and explained everything so I could easily understand, They realized that this was a serious accident and I could have been even more gravely injured had I not tried to avoid it. On the day of the actual trial, I was nervous as this was essentially a word against word case, but Christina assured me that we had a good strong case against the other individual, I had the truth on my side and was able to testify credibly. We won the lawsuit and received much more than I expected in the trial award. All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in need of legal services. This process for me was speedy, painless (as I was already in enough pain from the accident itself), and I received the outcome that I desired with the help of Christina Ruhl, Christine Airey, and Johnathon Portner. This was WELL worth the money, as I know that the other insurance company was really going to drag me through the mud!!! If you need a lawyer, THESE ARE YOUR GUYS!
After getting into my accident, i was unsure as to whom of which i should contact for legal purposes. I googled a few firms whom of which dealt with situations like my own. I saw a lot of great reviews for Portner & Shure so i decided to contact them and see if the hype was as good as the internet said they were. However, it wasnt...It was actually significantly better. I have had my fair share of usage with lawyers because of an array of reasons (work included) so i am very familiar with how the routine works. That being said, my experience was anything but routine. The entire staff was very polite and sympathetic to my situation all around. From the moment i walked in, until the very last time i walked out. Rebecca Deene worked very close with me the enitire time and consistently responded with haste anytime i had a question or concern. She was extremely knowledgable and more or less gave me the play by play of how things would work out. She was able to do this not only because she was experience, but also because of her commitment and faith in her team here. Christina Ruhl was my attorney. Where most lawyers fall short (i.e. prepping a client before a case being a major one), she excelled. She as well was extremely knowledgeable and did a fantastic job at prepping me for court. We more or less performed a mock trial multiple times prior to going to court just so that i would be prepared. The trial itself was just entertaining. She may come off as sweet, but she is a bulldog in court room. She knew exactly what to ask and how to ask. Her experience radiates when you see her in action. All in all, i highly recommend this firm.
After struggling for weeks to find a firm that would take my case, I stumbled upon Portner & Shure on AVVO (a search engine for lawyers). Portner & Shure got great reviews on AVVO and I decided to give them a call, I scheduled a meeting with Christina Ruhl and we sat down and spoke about my case, Christina explained that my case was complex and outlined all of the complexities of my case, and how she would address them in the upcoming months, her depth of knowledge about my case, along with her advice made me feel extremely comfortable about hiring Christina and Portner & Shure to handle my case. In the coming months Christina kept in constant touch with me, updating me about every detail of my case along with how things were progressing. I called Christina numerous times, she was always there to answer questions and ease any concerns I had, she even kept the office open late so I could drop off some documents after work! Hiring Christina Ruhl to handle my case was a great decision, it allowed me to have peace of mind knowing that my case was being handled by an extremely talented lawyer for a reasonable price. I highly recommend Portner & Shure and Christina Ruhl.

I got in a car accident caused by the negligence of a speeding car in the driveway at Maryland 100 in September 2015. The fault of the other driver was admitted. The incident seemed to solve amicably. But one months later, the medical expenses exceeded what insurance would pay my body still had pain. Because of inexperience and broken English I was worried and calls to the insurance company caused trouble for me at work. Under these circumstances, I contacted Portner and Shure. I met Grace in charge of the Korean. Grace listened to my story and Portner and Shure actively assisted me in my case. I continued to treat and my body recovered and got in negotiations with the insurance company within 5 months after accident happened. After I met Grace, it only took 9 weeks (2 months). Also I receive a quick solution satisfactory compensation. I also appreciate to Portner & Shure specially my attorney Mr. Jonathan Portner & Paralegal Amy Patton & Grace. Thank you so much. close
I scheduled a consultation with Portner & Shure at their Columbia, MD location. We were quickly taken care of by Norma, who listened and documented what occurred during our auto accident. After hearing our story and where we were in the process, she consulted with an attorney colleague and they both advised us that it was simply not in our best interest to have them handle the case - we would make more money by settling it ourselves. I admired their transparency and they advised us how to best negotiate with the Auto Insurer. Johnathan Portner, the Managing Partner, even came in and sat down with us to explain his view on the matter. The man probably bills out at $800+ dollars an hour, but he was willing to sit down and talk to us all day! If anything ever happens, god forbid, this is where I will seek out representation - without a doubt!
I was involved in a 5 car accident in January 2013. My friend Sarah works for Portner & Shure and advised me to work with them. I was a little hesitant at first because I had never been involved in an accident nor have ever been in court. The accident was clearly not my fault. The folks at the firm are extremely professional from the front office staff to my attorney Christina Rule. Christina took the time and listened to my concerns, answered my questions and took my case to heart. She did a phenomenal job in the courtroom and we just settled on May 13, 2015. With 5 people involved in such a large case it took a while to get all parties in one room. Thanks to Portner & Shure for taking the time with a newbie and I would definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for a Top Notch Firm! Tammy Gillhouse
I had an accident 9/2015 and had a free consultation. The paralegal Rebecca seemed nice and I thought she knew what she was talking about so I made the mistake of choosing Portner and Shure to represent me in my claim. I have never met nor spoken to the lawyers and the case was handled by two horrible paralegals who did not even answer my email or phone calls. I had to ask the receptionist to speak directly to the lawyer for the paralegal to return my call for close to a month. Rebecca even gave me an attitude when she spoke to me after asking to speak to the lawyer. It was the most frustrating situation I have ever faced. The law firm also did not hold true to their promise of getting my car fully fixed as Rebecca the paralegal working on the case stated. I would not recommend this law firm to my worst enemy.
Someone hit my car with a stolen vehicle. The whole situation was an absolute mess and my insurance was plodding along the process. Thus, I called Portner and Shure, a solid and reliable firm. Claudia Hernandez, paralegal worked hard and helped me every step of the way. She took care of everything and made the whole process as seamless as possible . She was in constant communication with me along with the insurance company. She always kept me up to date and was very fast and efficient in our correspondences. Not only is she thorough and dedicated, but she is also goal driven in achieving the best medical and recovery comp outcome for the client. Claudia is truly wonderful to work with and a huge asset to the distinguished firm.
Horrible experience with them in my Virginia Wirkers Compensation Case. After 15 months of practically doing everything wrong in my caseI finally fired them. I hired this firm because I thought I was hiring Jonathan Portner who is a good lawyer by reputation but got stuck with his mediocre colleague Kevin Ruby that handles his Virginia Workers Compensation Cases. They take on more than they can handle. I went to Avvo and hired an awesome 10 Rating lawyer Bryan G. Bosta. Since then my stress level has been relieved by having proper representation. So Portner & Shure in my opinion shouldstick to Maryland personal injury cases only. They suck!!!
I was very impressed with the customer experience through Portner & Shure, P.A. I was working with a paralegal Amy P. in the legal dept. at Portner & Shure. I was in a auto accident and thier team provided me with fast, professional service. They were on top of my case the whole time . They provided me with information and advice to protect myself and receive the best compensations. The experience was very quick and easy. I highly recommend Portner & Shure, P.A. to anyone involved in an auto accident. They will have your back through the whole process. That is my experience.
It was an amazing experience. Shure took the time to meet me at my job in order to get my statement and see if I was doing okay. You can tell Shure loves his job and general wants to help. Portner the same. I had the pleasure of working with both of these gentlemen and they really just want to help you through the grueling process. Their pre legalizes are just as good. Pam and Amy are amazing; they both help me through my case with patience and understanding. They are always available for questions and they get the job done. Even got discounts. Thanks for everything.
My paralegal Christine Airey is the greatest. After being in a car accident back in April. I contacted Portner and Shure. Christine was in charge of my case and let me tell you, she did a marvelous job. She stayed on top of everything. I had never been in an accident before and this was my first time seeking legal representation. Christine made everything go very smoothly and my case was settled sooner than expected. Thank you so much Christine. For anyone looking for legal representation without the worry call Portner and Shure. YOU GUYS ROCK.
I was involved in auto accident in March 2016. I had previously used Portner & Shure for another matter. Without hesitation, I contacted Portner & Shure to handle my claim. The paralegal assigned to my claim was Rebecca. She was knowledgable and offered me help through every step of the claim including assistance with the total loss of my vehicle to a settlement for my bodily injury. I an very happy with my settlement and felt Rebecca truly maximized my overall result. As a continued client, I would absolutely recommend Portner & Shure.
“I have worked directly with Christie Rowland and would recommend her to anyone. She is professional, responsive, and trustworthy. Everything she said she was able to do was done and exceeded my expectations. If there was something she was unable to do for me, she was honest and made sure I understood the law with respect to my particular situation. I found her to be compassionate and understanding with me but extremely aggressive with the insurance company. Isn’t that what you need from your legal counsel? She is absolutely amazing!!!!”
