Ethan S. Nochumowitz
Mr. Nochumowitz's experience is extensive, having successfully resolved serious injury and wrongful death cases arising out of, among other circumstances, automobile, bus and tractor trailer collisions, pedestrian deaths, all-terrain vehicle accidents, construction accidents, drownings, boating/propeller accidents, explosions, house fires and defectively designed and manufactured products.
Mr. Nochumowitz regularly obtains million-dollar-plus settlements and/or verdicts for his clients and has achieved record-setting results. For example, in 2015 he obtained a $2.8 million jury verdict in Calvert County, Maryland, in a case arising out of the death of a 63-year-old husband and father in an automobile collision. The verdict is believed to be the largest in Calvert County history. Mr. Nochumowitz’s track record of obtaining tremendously favorable outcomes for his clients has resulted in him being regularly called upon to litigate the firm’s most serious, and often tragic of cases. The following are other recent examples of successful outcomes he has achieved for his clients:
- $7,000,000 – Personal Injury (Vehicular Collision); March 2019
- $6,500,000 – Medical Malpractice (Wrongful Birth); December 2021
- $3,000,000 – Construction Worker Death (Fall from Height); November 2021
- $1,600,000 – Construction Worker Injury; February 2023
- $1,000,000 – Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death (Failure to Respond to Ventricular Tachycardia); June 2020
- $1,000,000 – Wrongful Death (Negligent Security – Patron Shot at Bar); September 2019
- $975,000 – Wrongful Death (Automobile Collision); October 2020

- $750,000 – Construction Worker Injury (Pedestrian Struck by Forklift); July 2022
Mr. Nochumowitz also enjoys performing pro bono legal services for deserving organizations that do important work in the local community. For example, he has represented The League for People With Disabilities, a charitable organization dedicated to providing vocational, rehabilitative, educational and medical services to thousands of individuals each year with multiple physical, cognitive and neurological disabilities. In that matter, Mr. Nochumowitz convinced the City of Baltimore that it had grossly over-billed The League for water and sewer services over a number of years and obtained a settlement of over $380,000, which represented every penny of what was claimed to be owed with no compromise whatsoever. Since that representation, Mr. Nochumowitz has enjoyed remaining actively involved in The League, joining its Board of Directors in 2020, and serving as its Treasurer and Chair of its largest annual fundraising campaign, The League Fund.
During law school, Mr. Nochumowitz served on the University of Baltimore Law Review, and took on an active role teaching legal research, writing and appellate advocacy skills to first-year law students. Prior to joining Silverman Thompson as an Associate, Mr. Nochumowitz worked for the Honorable George Levi Russell, III of the United States District Court for the District of Maryland.
