Timothy J. Sylvia, Attorney at Law
Law Offices of Johnston, Murphy, and Sylvia LLC

Practice Areas

Probate - Probating a decedent's estate can be complex and time consuming.  Mr. Sylvia has years of experience practicing probate law before the Register of Wills in Maryland and the District of Columbia.  He can manage every aspect of the probate process from filing the petition for probate, selling real property, distributing the decedent's assets, and every step in between.  He will see that all of the decedent's funeral expenses, legally enforceable debts, and taxes are paid.  If probate litigation becomes necessary, he has years of experience in this as well.

Estate Planning
- Estate Planning is a broad area that can include a Last Will and Testament, Trust, Power of Attorney, Advance Medical Directives, and much more.  There is no single plan that can fit everyone's needs.  Mr. Sylvia will help you understand the options that are available to you and create a plan that fits you.  Taking the time to plan ahead gives you the opportunity to make important choices such as how your assets will be distributed, who will raise your children if you're not here, who will care for you if you are incapacitated, and what medical treatments you would prefer at the end of life.  Take the time to contact us today and create an estate plan that is right for you.

Personal Injury - When someone has been injured in an accident they are faced with medical, legal, and insurance issues that can be overwhelming.  That's why it is important to obtain experienced legal representation to assist in all of these areas.  First and foremost it is important to get prompt medical attention to diagnose your injuries.  We will make arrangements to collect the medical records related to your accident and then use these as evidence in court, or when negotiating with the insurance company, to see that you get justly compensated for your injuries.  If you have been injured as a result of someone's negligence you deserve aggressive, experienced representation.   

    Mr. Sylvia's practice extends to the areas of probate, probate litigation, wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advance medical directives, guardianship of minors, guardianship of incapacitated persons, personal injury, collaborative law, and general practice. He practices regularly in Howard County, Montgomery County, Prince George's County, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, Baltimore City and the Washington D.C.
