Associate

Michael Stamm graduated from Georgetown University Law Center in 2017. While there he interned at public defender offices in Upper Marlboro and Baltimore, Maryland and Fairbanks, Alaska. He worked as an Executive Article Editor on the Georgetown Poverty Law Journal and published a note, Between A Rock And Discriminatory Place: How Sentencing Guidelines And Mandatory Minimums Should Be Employed To Reduce Poverty Discrimination In The Criminal Justice System, 24 Geo. J. on Poverty L. & Pol'y 399 (2017). In his third year, he participated in the year-long Georgetown Criminal Defense and Prisoner Advocacy Clinic, where he represented indigent clients charged with misdemeanors in Washington D.C. and those on supervised release in revocation hearings. As part of the clinic, he also taught a class on legal writing for lifers at the Jessup Correctional Institution. At graduation, he received the Kirby S. Howlett III Memorial Award for his clinic and public defender work.

After graduating from law school, Stamm worked as a public defender in Montrose, Colorado. During that time he represented people charged with a wide variety of misdemeanors and felonies. He gained significant courtroom experience, litigating numerous motions and trying over 20 cases to juries.

In 2019, he moved back to the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area to join the law firm of Goldstein & Stamm, P.A., first as a law clerk, while waiting to be admitted to the Maryland Bar. During that time he worked on the firm’s active cases and helped to author the 2020 update to Maryland Evidence: State and Federal by Professor Lynn McLain.

On May 20, 2020, he was admitted to the Maryland Bar.
