Mesothelioma Lawyer

Matthew E. Kiely

My legal career began in Baltimore, Maryland in 1989 when I began practicing at a commercial litigation firm representing both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide variety of matters, including commercial disputes, tort actions and product liability cases.  From 1989 to 2000, I tried dozens of cases to verdict, gaining invaluable experience in the courtroom.  

In 2000, I, along with two of my partners, formed the firm of Parker, Dumler & Kiely, LLP (“PDK”).  At PDK, our practice focused extensively on the representation of individuals with mesothelioma against corporations that were responsible for our clients’ exposure to asbestos.  During that time, I not only tried several cases to verdict and obtained multi-million dollar verdicts for my clients, but I also collected millions of dollars in settlements for them.  

In 2011, my two partners retired from the practice of law and I continued to practice as a sole practitioner in Baltimore.  My practice continued to focus on the representation of asbestos victims.

In 2017, I joined Brown to form BrownKiely.  Having collaborated with Dan Brown on asbestos cases for more than 15 years,  I look forward to continuing to do so now that I have become a member of BrownKiely.
