Your Practice Matters, Which Is Why We Focus on What Matters to Your Practice.
You created a practice dedicated to caring for your clients, and Mayer Law was created on the same principle.
We are a full-service law practice dedicated to being a resource for healthcare and mental health practitioners and their practices located throughout the greater Baltimore, MD area.
Why Mayer Law?
We take a proactive approach and are a resource to our clients to prevent issues and lawsuits before they ever occur.
We also assist when legal issues do arise and recommend steps to avoid the situation in the future.
Who We Are
We are not a one-size fits all giant law firm. We are a boutique practice that specializes in, and is passionate about being the go-to legal source for health-care and mental health practitioners and their practices.
What We Do
We don’t just focus on helping when legal issues arise, but being a resource to help practitioners prevent issues in the first place. We know that while access to legal services can be crucial for practitioners like yourself, sometimes the cost of hiring an attorney can prevent you from getting the help you need. Mayer Law strives to offer practitioners access to top-notch legal service without having to break the bank to afford legal help.
View our Frequently Asked Questions
We know that what you’re doing is highly specialized, that’s why our practice areas are honed to meet your specific needs. We have the experience and knowledge of healthcare and mental health that you need in a law practice, which is why we’re the preferred practice of Baltimore, MD area practitioners.
Mental Health Law
Mental health providers need to have protocols, systems and procedures leading to contracts in place to prevent legal pitfalls and address rules and regulatsions that they’re following state compliance. From refining client intake forms to release of records protocols, Mayer Law can guide your practice through helping as many patients as possible while avoiding legal complications.
Because healthcare and mental health are heavily regulated, legal issues are a constant concern for practitioners. To ensure compliance at your private practice, you might elect to retain outside counsel to take advantage of all the services that an in-house counsel would provide without the significant overhead such a position requires. We understand it’s overwhelming for you, and we are here to walk you through everything.
If you are preparing to start your own healthcare or mental health practice, Mayer Law can assist with your formation, and all the legal documents that starting a business entails. While you never want to dwell on worst case scenarios, we know that sometimes it can be challenging and we can guide you through planning for bumps in the road and growing your practice.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Get Started?
Please contact us directly using the form on this page, or call or email us directly. Once we receive your information, Daniel Mayer will reach out to you via email, and you will be granted access to our booking calendar to set up a free initial consultation. You will also be asked to complete an Intake Questionnaire so we can explore the best way to help meet your needs.
Is There a Fee for the Initial Consultation?
If you need only a one-time consultation to address specific questions, there is a flat fee of $245.00 for an hour of consultation. If the client chooses to move forward with representation past that consult, the $245.00 will be placed in a Client Trust account and used to help fund representation.
What Are the Fees for the Representation?
As every medical and mental health practice has different needs, we do not rely on a one-fee-fits-all model. Instead, we work with our clients to determine the best fee structure for their needs, whether it be hourly, a fixed fee or a retainer basis. We bill at $265.00/hour. For retainer clients, we require a minimum of $500.00 to retain us long-term. This fee is used to fund legal fees as services are rendered and deposited into the Client Trust account. Our flat fees start at $250.00, depending on which service is rendered.

QUOAD HOC: A Legal Blog
Why Quaod Hoc? Well, it is a bit of a play on words. To put it in non-lawyer speak, Quoad Hoc is a legal term, meaning “As to this; or with respect to this”, often regarding something the law may deal with.
