F&P is ringing in the new year by congratulating our attorneys who received a 2022 promotion, two to principal and one to counsel. These attorneys exemplify the level of skill and professionalism that Franklin & Prokopik prides itself in and have distinguished themselves in the legal community.
Join us in applauding these members of the F&P team and thanking them for their hard work and devotion to the firm.
Scarlett Corso, principal, Baltimore

After leaving in 2016 to gain valuable experience litigating personal injury claims on the plaintiffs’ side, and then subsequently served as in-house Counsel handling subrogation and liability defense for The Travelers Indemnity Company, she returned to the firm as Counsel in 2019. Scarlett concentrates her civil litigation practice primarily in the areas of liability defense for premises liability, trucking and transportation, and contracts, as well as liability insurance subrogation for property damage claims, focusing on electrical, fire, and water damage claims.

Jennifer represents employers and insurers in a variety of workers’ compensation matters before the Workers’ Compensation Commission and courts throughout Maryland and Washington, D.C. In addition, she has experience doing plaintiff work, enabling her to provide insight and knowledge into the approaches taken by both sides.
