Ashcraft & Gerel LLP is one of the largest personal injury law firms in the nation with a practice limited exclusively to representation of the victims of civil wrongs, or torts. Over the past 57 years the firm has grown to six offices and approximately 40 lawyers, all of whom devote their exclusive efforts to personal injury litigation. Ashcraft & Gerel LLP is also a member firm in the much larger, national law firm of Herman Gerel LLP.
This national firm was founded to represent the huge numbers of consumer or user victims created by corporate greed and wrongdoing. By representing only the plaintiff’s side in litigation, we are able to avoid divided loyalties and at the same time provide aggressive and high quality representation.
Our experience and resources have produced a large number of multi-million dollar settlements and judgments in a wide variety of individual cases and mass tort litigation.

Company description
Ashcraft & Gerel, LLP is a Washington, DC based law firm with five branch offices in the surrounding Maryland and Virginia counties as well as Baltimore City. Lee C. Ashcraft and Martin E. Gerel started the firm in 1953, handling only District of Columbia workers’ compensation cases from a small walk-up office in Washington, D.C. In the 57 years since, the firm has grown to almost 40 lawyers, handling a vast array of plaintiff’s personal injury cases. Our attorneys represent clients in all of the traditional personal injury fields — – cases like those arising from car accidents, work related injuries and construction accidents.
We also handle more complex cases, representing people injured by medical malpractice, by neglect in nursing homes, group homes or foster care settings. We represent workers and their families who have been stricken with lung cancer and mesothelioma caused by asbestos. In the last 10 years, people injured by faulty medical devices and defective drugs have been a big part of our practice. Toxic torts have been a big part of our practice. We are pursuing lawsuits involving severe environmental damage to people and property caused by the oil and natural gas mining process called fracking (sometimes also referred to as hydraulic fracturing, fracing, and hydrofracking) in which toxic fluids are pumped at high pressure into deep underground rock and shale formations in order to crack the rock and allow oil and natural gas to flow along the fracture lines.
The chemicals used in this process cause cancer. Well water has been poisoned by toxic chemicals and land has been rendered unusable. Our attorneys are well regarded in the legal community. They serve often as leaders in their local bar associations and national litigation groups. They have been recognized with the highest ratings in Martindale Hubbell and by such publications as Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers.
