Jennifer S. Lubinski
Ms. Lubinski is a former Chief Solicitor with the Baltimore City Office of Law and partner associated with several Baltimore-area law firms. She has accumulated twenty years of experience representing clients in employment, civil rights, business, insurance, and family law matters. Notable cases litigated by Ms. Lubinski include a multi-million dollar suit involving allegations of fraud and undue influence by a wealth adviser and accountant; civil rights litigation involving an employer’s refusal to recognize an employee’s religious marriage; and a shareholder-initiated business dissolution suit tried before Chancellor Leo Strine of Delaware’s Chancery Court. Ms. Lubinski has also successfully represented clients before the Maryland Board of Contract Appeals and other federal, state and local agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Office of Compliance, the Commission on Human Rights, and various Merit System Protection Boards. Recently Ms. Lubinski successfully challenged the use of “internet-monitoring” evidence offered by an employer to support disciplinary charges against its employee in a Merit System trial, resulting in a reversal of discipline and an award of attorney’s fees to her client. Ms. Lubinski has also regularly represented clients in private arbitrations before FINRA, the American Arbitration Association and other organizations and in mediations.
In the family law arena, Ms. Lubinski has successfully litigated a wide range of property and custody-related issues. While she recognizes that litigation may be required in such cases, she is committed to seeking negotiated resolutions whenever possible and in her clients’ best interests. Ms. Lubinski has also handled matters concerning guardianship, powers of attorney and estate disputes.
Ms. Lubinski has written on such topics as the First Amendment in the social media era and professional negligence concerns for realtors. She is the author of the Maryland chapter of the Defense Research Institute’s Professional Liability Insurance Compendium. She is an attendee of the prestigious Writer’s Workshop at The Kenyon Review and the Center for Academically Talented Youth program at Johns Hopkins University. A magna cum laude graduate of the Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law, Ms. Lubinski’s contribution to the CUA Law Review concerned work-for-hire issues relevant to artists. This topic is close to her heart as Ms. Lubinski is an accomplished writer of fiction and poetry and her blog, Work Product: Law, Literature and Laxism, occasionally appeared within the pages of the Journal of the American Bar Association and hosted the Law Carnival Round-Up.
Additionally, Ms. Lubinski has been a dedicated member of the bar community. She has served as President of Maryland Defense Counsel, Inc. and the Baltimore-Carroll Chapter of the Women’s Bar Association. Ms. Lubinski chaired the Women’s Bar Association’s Judicial Selection Committee from 2011 to 2013, and served on the executive board of that organization from 2012 to 2013. She is also a peer review panel attorney with the Attorney Grievance Commission and a member of the Barrister’s Law Club.
In 2010 the Maryland Daily Record named Ms. Lubinski one of its fifty Leading Women, and in 2012 Ms. Lubinski’s alma mater, the Catholic High School of Baltimore, named her its Mother Generosa McCafferty Distinguished Alumnus.
Having accomplished her goal of running the Marine Corps Marathon in 2016, Ms. Lubinski is currently training for her first triathlon.
