Alphonso S. Hearns, Managing Partner at Hearns Law Group, is admitted to practice law in the state of Maryland and the United States District Court for the District of Maryland. A highly skilled, aggressive, yet compassionate litigator, he focuses his practice in the areas of domestic relations appeals, family law, business startups, and personal injury. Early in his career, Alphonso filed a multi-million dollar police brutality lawsuit against the Maryland State Police and a former Maryland State Trooper. Alphonso prevailed, winning a favorable settlement for his client which led to Alphonso successfully recovering compensation for hundreds of individuals and families injured as a result of the recklessness of others, throughout his career.
Alphonso began his legal career as a real estate transactions attorney working for an international commercial real estate developer, negotiating commercial real estate contracts. He thought he was fulfilled in his position until a family member desperately needed a family law attorney. He decided that his skills, education and background would be better utilized fighting for individuals and families in court. Transitioning from a real estate transactions attorney to becoming a litigator, Alphonso immediately forged partnerships with several advocacy groups in the region including the Center for Abused Persons, Charles County, Maryland and the YWCA of Annapolis, Maryland. He began assisting these groups with handling the more difficult custody and domestic violence cases in which they did not have the resources to handle as non-profit organizations. Within the first few years of this transition, Alphonso experienced tremendous success in handling the most complex custody litigation matters an attorney could ever experience. Alphonso quickly developed a reputation as the go-to attorney for handling high-conflict family law cases which resulted in him successfully managing hundreds of such cases.
Alphonso’s reputation and track record of success has garnered the respect and acknowledgement of his peers and local judges. Alphonso was selected to lead the Prince George’s County Bar Association’s Family Law Committee as the Co-Chair, where he mentors new family law practitioners and provides a source of continuing legal education for seasoned practitioners. Alphonso was also invited by members of the bench of the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County, Maryland to join the faculty of the Judicial Institute’s three day Family Law University Seminar for Maryland judges.
Alphonso received his J.D. from the Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law, 2004 and B.A. from the University of Maryland, College Park. Alphonso is a member of the Trial lawyers Association of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., the J. Franklyn Bourne Bar Association, Maryland State Bar Association, and Prince George’s County Bar Association.
