Employment Law

As an employee, you have certain rights that need to be protected, such as the right to negotiate and collectively bargain, to be protected from discrimination and to ensure a safe and equitably paid position. When your employer begins to infringe on those rights, the experienced attorneys at Alperstein & Diener can help.

Real Estate Law

Navigating the legal climate of Real Estate can be challenging. Without an experienced attorney on your side, the many regulations about the transfer, sale, purchase or zoning of land can be overwhelming. The lawyers at Alperstein & Diener are here to help guide you in the right direction to ensure a fair and legal outcome when engaging in real estate transactions.

Landlord/Tenant Law

The legal relationship between a tenant and landlord in the rental of a commercial or residential property can vary based on the contract between the two parties. Further, Maryland State laws which regulate nondiscriminatory rental practices, termination, hold overs or property damages can be complex. These laws are essential to protecting the rights of both a tenant and a landlord, and as such, it is essential that you speak with an experienced attorney regarding your rights in a dispute. The lawyers at Alperstein & Diener have years of experience representing clients in issues related to landlord/tenant laws, and can help to provide a just result for your dispute.


At times, contracts require parties within a dispute to enter arbitration or mediation proceedings. In these situations, the lawyers at Alperstein & Diener have the ability and skills to work outside of the court system as an unbiased third party, acting as the mediator or arbitrator for your dispute, or to represent the interests of individual clients. We have continually worked with clients over the years to ensure fair dispute resolution and equitable outcomes.
