Maryland

Maryland lawyer and Bike Law founder Peter Wilborn's first bicycle race was in College Park, Maryland in 1983. It was a two-lap criterium, and midway through the second lap, Peter realized that he had no special gift for riding fast. On the bright side, he spent more time studying: Peter was admitted to the Bar of Maryland in 1995. He has represented cyclists in Annapolis, Bethesda, Columbia, Baltimore, and other towns.

Representation in Maryland bicycle injury cases

In 1998, Peter had a bike tragedy in his own family, realized first hand the need for lawyers who understand cycling, and devoted his law practice to Bike Law.  From the start, calls and referrals have come from friends in cycling clubs and bike shops and from advocates for better bicycling.  Since then, Peter has represented Maryland cyclists who have been injured by motorists, unsafe road conditions, or defective cycling products.  Raised in Bethesda, Peter represents cyclists throughout the State, from the D.C. suburbs, to Annapolis, Columbia, Baltimore, Frederick, Cumberland and everywhere else.

Peter is a Life Member of the League of American Bicyclists and is a League Certified Bicycle Safety Instructor.  He is rated as an AV Preeminent Attorney, and has received awards for his pro bono work from the South Carolina and American bar associations and the Washington Lawyers Committee.

Peter speaks across Maryland (and country) to bicycle clubs, advocacy groups, and law enforcement personnel on bicycle safety and bicycle laws.  He is especially interested in the etiquette and culture of cycling, and his article

The Lost Art of the Group Ride” has been downloaded over 75,000 times.

If you have been injured in a Maryland bike accident, by a defective bicycle product, or because of an unsafe road condition and would like to discuss your case with a Maryland bicycle accident attorney who gets cycling, Peter welcomes your call for a free consultation.  He can be reached at peter@bikelaw.com and 844-531-7530.
