As a result, the firm has contact with the adjusters of these employees on a regular basis and Mr. Gross enjoys a good working relationship with them in order to maintain the best results for his clients. In addition to representing these men and women who are injured in the line of duty with their workers' compensation and negligence claims, Mr. Gross also represents officers who have been wrongfully denied a service connected disability retirement and works with FOP Lodge 35 in this capacity.
A large portion of the firm's practice involves representing injured individuals who have been hurt at work.

In this regard, Mr. Gross has helped shape Maryland law in the field of Workers' Compensation by arguing seminal cases in both the Maryland Court of Special Appeals and the Maryland Court of Appeals. Mr. Gross currently serves as Co-Chair of the Workers' Compensation Section of the Montgomery County Bar Association and has lectured in the field, including having been a presenter at the annual Maryland state workers' compensation convention held in Ocean City, Maryland.
