Evelyn Spurgin Recognized as Maryland Super Lawyer for 5th Year


The Super Lawyers distinction is based on a peer balloting process involving attorneys from across Maryland. Nominees are then systematically researched and evaluated using a complex, patented selection process. Hillman, Brown & Darrow now proudly has a third lawyer who has been recognized in recent years as one of the top 5% of attorneys in Maryland.

A crucial step to the selection process is a comprehensive research evaluation based on Super Lawyer’s “12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement”. Among these 12 indicators taken into consideration are: experience, client representation, verdicts and settlements and outstanding achievements as an attorney. With more than 30 years of experience, from clerking for the Honorable Elsbeth Bothe, to advocating for her clients as a fierce litigator, gaining her current reputation as a sought after appeals attorney in Annapolis, Evelyn’s list of qualifications reflect her commitment and dedication to excel in the courtroom.

Evelyn joined Hillman, Brown & Darrow in 1984, focusing on accidents, personal inury and workers’ compensation cases. Her compassion and ability to counsel her clients through difficult times helped her to broaden her focus area to family law. She is now a top family law and appeals attorney, taking on divorce cases as well as child custody and support cases. Celebrating 35 years with the firm next year, Evelyn still enjoys challenging work and meeting her clients’ needs with both a high knowledge of the law and compassion to counsel them through difficult periods in their lives.
