Brown, Goldstein & Levy is thrilled to announce that Anthony May has been elevated to partner within the firm. Anthony, who worked as a paralegal at BGL while in law school and joined BGL as an associate in 2017, has built a practice dedicated to representing clients in a variety of complex litigation matters including assisting employees with disabilities in obtaining accessible technology and accommodations in the workplace, representing individuals who have been wrongfully convicted, representing clients in commercial litigation disputes, and fighting workplace discrimination stemming from employers’ use of artificial intelligence as well as other forms of employment discrimination, such as discrimination based on sexual orientation.
Considered an authority in the growing intersection of AI and employment discrimination law, Anthony has written and presented extensively on the role of artificial intelligence in the workplace, including at the 2023 Maryland State Bar Association Legal Summit. He has built an AI practice area that brings BGL’s expertise in combatting employment discrimination directly to the forefront of the emerging use of AI in employment and focuses on representing clients who have been denied employment opportunities due to the discriminatory use of such technology.
“We are incredibly proud of Anthony’s elevation to partner,” said Managing Partner Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum. “It is rare that I meet a young attorney with as much passion and skill as Anthony, and I am thrilled to continue working alongside him in his new role.”
Anthony has earned some of the legal industry’s top accolades. He was selected to Lawdragon’s 500 Leading Civil Rights and Plaintiff Employment Lawyers and Lawdragon’s 500 X – The Next Generation guides for 2023. Anthony was also named a Maryland Rising Star by Super Lawyers and “One to Watch” by Best Layers in America for the sixth and third consecutive year, respectively. He received The Daily Record’s Generation J.D. Award in 2020. In 2019, he was honored as the Young Lawyer of the Year by the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers’ Service (MVLS), where he serves on the Board of Directors and as President of the Community Advocacy Network.
Anthony was also selected as a 2022 recipient of the Maryland Legal Services Corporation (MLSC) Rising Star Award, an honor given to attorneys who have practiced law for 10 years or less and who have significantly contributed to expanding access to justice by serving the civil legal needs of low-income Marylanders or advancing the delivery of civil legal services. Anthony currently sits on the Maryland Carey Law Alumni Board, which houses an exceptionally talented group of lawyers and leaders in the law community, and has served as an adjunct professor at Carey Law.
Prior to joining the firm, Anthony was the Francis D. Murnaghan, Jr. Appellate Advocacy Fellow at The Public Justice Center, where he represented indigent clients, authored amicus briefs, and argued in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and Maryland appellate courts on various anti-poverty and civil rights cases. He clerked on the Appellate Court of Maryland (formerly known as the Maryland Court of Special Appeals) for the Honorable Deborah Sweet Eyler (Ret.).
Anthony earned his J.D. from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, J.D., cum laude, and his B.A., summa cum laude, from the University of Akron.
