We are more than lawyers. At Rosenberg Martin Greenberg, our passion extends to our community.
Sure, we care about our clients, but we also care about issues facing Greater Baltimore. And as you will see, what we care about is as diverse as we are. Investing in our community has always been a cornerstone of our firm – not just financially, but with our talents and time. A passion for giving makes us better attorneys, gives us a different perspective on what’s really important, and makes us better people. Here’s a glimpse into what we care about:
I am Harris Eisenstein, an associate with Rosenberg Martin Greenberg. I currently serve as a member of the Board of Directors for The Ingenuity Project. The Ingenuity Project works in collaboration with the Baltimore City Public School System to provide more than 500 students in middle and high school with a free, accelerated, and challenging math, science, and research curriculum. The program serves students from diverse socioeconomic classes, including some from families who have chosen to educate their children in public rather than private schools and others from families preparing to send their first child to college. As a Baltimore native, I’m proud to be involved with an organization that plays a vital role in educating our youth and, by extension, improving the city for decades to come.
I am Jim Liang, a partner with Rosenberg Martin Greenberg. I currently serve as President and Board Member for The Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Maryland. APABA-MD seeks to support the professional growth and advancement of our members, is active in the judicial recommendations process, co-sponsors education programs and promotes the involvement of our members in the greater community. I enjoy working with APABA-MD because, as an Asian-American attorney, I am sensitive to issues facing the Asian Pacific American legal community and the Asian Pacific American community-at-large and want to play an active role in overcoming those issues.
I am Caroline Hecker, a partner with Rosenberg Martin Greenberg. I currently serve as a board member for the Historic Charles Street Association. HCSA supports and promotes the business, cultural attractions, entertainment venues, restaurants and retail establishments along the Charles Street corridor. I enjoy working with the Historic Charles Street Association because Baltimore's vitality is important to me, and I love being able to contribute to the character of Charm City.
I am Sheelagh M. Allston, a partner with Rosenberg Martin Greenberg. I currently serve as Secretary for the Board of Young Audiences/Arts for Learning Maryland and am also on the planning committee for Taste the Arts, Young Audience's annual fundraising gala. Young Audiences is a non-profit organization that provides over 4,000 arts education programs to children throughout the State of Maryland each year, generating opportunities for students to imagine, create and realize their full potential through the arts. Being a part of Young Audiences is important to me because music, visual and performing arts played a prominent role in my childhood and education and I enjoy working with people who are full of creative energy and recognize the importance of arts programming in education.
I am Benjamin Rosenberg, Chairman of Rosenberg Martin Greenberg. I formerly served as co-chair of the Equal Justice Council, the development arm of the Legal Aid Bureau of Maryland. Legal Aid is the largest legal services organization in Maryland and one of the largest law firms in the state. Its attorneys provide exceptional counsel to tens of thousands of Maryland residents who otherwise would have no access to the civil justice system. By helping Legal Aid carry out its mission, I have played a small part in ensuring that the phrase "Equal Justice for All" is not an empty slogan.
I am Cindy Spell, a partner with Rosenberg Martin Greenberg. I currently serve as a member of the Board of Directors of People Encouraging People, Inc. (PEP). PEP is a non-profit behavioral healthcare organization dedicated to providing life-transforming rehabilitation and support services to people in our community who are disabled or disadvantaged. I enjoy the work I do for PEP because it gives me the opportunity to assist an organization which provides services to some of the most needy individuals in our society, including those who face various challenges, such as mental illness, drug addiction and homelessness, with the goal of assimilating its clients into the community and improving the quality of their lives.
We Get It
We “get it” because that’s our DNA. Being lawyers isn’t enough for us. We love being advisors to our clients. Our clients know that our approach is the difference between getting an answer and getting advice. It’s who we are. We get your business. We get you. We get results. Find us and find out why we make a difference
In September, 2012, the partners of Rosenberg Martin Greenberg, in celebration of its 25th anniversary, established the Rosenberg Martin Greenberg Continuing Fund of the Baltimore Community Foundation. By establishing the Fund, the firm recognized the permanence in the community that 25 years of service reflects with an entity that seeks to influence the foremost challenge for our community. The Fund was established to support organizations committed to education reform in Baltimore City. It is named a “continuing fund” because it will be a permanent charitable endowment at the Baltimore Community Foundation, continuing to grow and distribute grants for generations to come.
RMG Managing Partner Barry Greenberg said, upon the announcement establishing the Fund: “Those of us who are part of the Baltimore community understand the necessity for improvements to the public education system in Baltimore. The need for educational opportunities of the highest levels for all students in this area is essential to the growth of and vitality of the City and its business prospects in the future. The partners of RMG have been committed to this community for over 25 years and we believe there is no better investment in the future of this community than to support increased educational opportunities in our schools.”
With the establishment of the Fund, RMG announced the first two grant awards from the RMG Continuing Fund to New Leaders and Access Art, recognizing the role each plays in furthering excellence in education for Baltimore’s students.

The partners, with the assistance of the Baltimore Community Foundation, intend to continue to seek out and support organizations such as these in the future through grants from the Fund and the efforts of the attorneys and staff of RMG.
