Justice is a Lady Lawyer: Deborah Potter


At Potter Law, LLC, our Pride works to revolutionize the way you experience the entire legal process. Our legal team understands the importance of standing by your side and confidently representing individuals throughout the state of Maryland and Washington, DC.

When it comes to selecting your lawyer, many clients research tirelessly for the right attorney to represent their case. Important factors that are usually considered include the type of law an attorney focuses on, outcomes of previous cases, as well as previous client reviews, and the lawyer’s reputation.

Clients have time and time again raved about the dedication, commitment, and outcomes of their cases after working with Potter Burnett. Founding partner and leading attorney Deborah Potter has transformed the way individuals are represented throughout the process of their entire case.

Debbie is well known for her $26 million-dollar verdict against Ford Motor Company. Some of her career milestones include being selected as one of the Top Women in Law by the American Lawyer Magazine along with being deemed a “SuperLawyer” for seven consecutive years. She has been named one of “Maryland’s Top 100 Women” two times by the Daily Record. She was also inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers – one of the premier legal associations in North America – in 2018.

When representing clients, Debbie always strives to represent the best interest of her clients. Being a female lawyer, she brings facts and figures to light while also appealing to a sense of compassion and empathy. Clients are comfortable with her demeanor and appreciate her dedication to fully understanding the full extent of what they may be going through, both mentally and physically.

Debbie is a passionate and resourceful lawyer who is relentless in pursuing the best possible outcome for her clients. For example, her ability to demonstrate to jurors her credibility and trustworthiness with ease is a factor that makes her extremely effective in the courtroom.

Aside from her experience in the courtroom, she consistently makes it a point to educate and empower clients on their rights and the law, so that they can find the strength – through both their own knowledge as well as Debbie’s support – to navigate the ups and downs of their case and in the end, receive justice.

Debbie provides her clients with the information and tools necessary to make educated decisions about their future and goals. She continually looks for innovative ways to solve problems for clients, while working with them to move their lives forward in a restored, more comprehensive manner than the traditional legal approach allows.

With the support of her partners Andrew and Suzanne Burnett, Debbie takes personal injury to heart—so when clients are injured or suffer a loss due to a car crash, medical mistake, neglect, or personal injury—Potter Burnett’s pride will be there with the legal experience, leadership, and proven track record to represent them and their family.

A good female lawyer will always be ready to use her prioritization skills in even the most complex of cases. Deborah Potter wants to ensure that each client leads a happier and more positive lifestyle as they move forward.
