Workers’ Comp Team Spotlight – R. Cameron Legg and Lee Lawler

Cameron Legg joined Franklin & Prokopik as an associate attorney in March of 2017. He concentrates his practice in Maryland workers’ compensation defense.

Cameron is originally from the Baltimore area and is a graduate of the George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology. While in high school, Cameron showed a talent for acting and starred in some commercials. He appeared in a commercial for college and an Army training video.

Cameron attended college at Towson University, graduating in 2005. He majored in Business, with plans to attend law school. While at Towson, Cameron played golf as a hobby and experienced one of his greatest accomplishments in the sport – his first and only hole-in-one while playing at Pine Ridge Golf Course.

In 2007 Cameron began law school at the University of Baltimore School of Law. While in law school, Cameron wrote for the Intellectual Property Journal and was on the International Law Moot Court Team. He was also very involved in the sports activities of the school. He won the school’s golf tournament three years in a row, his flag football team won the school’s flag football tournament two years in a row, and he played softball. Cameron graduated in 2010, magna cum laude.

From 2010-2011, Cameron clerked for the Honorable Stephen Waldron in the Circuit Court for Harford County. After his clerkship, he joined the State’s Attorney’s Office in Harford County where he worked for five years. While employed with the State’s Attorney’s Office, Cameron successfully prosecuted countless misdemeanors and felonies ranging from simple drug possession to homicide.  He drafted a bill, that ultimately became a law in Maryland, creating the crime of tampering with evidence.

Cameron brings the same intensity he possessed as a prosecutor to his handling of workers’ compensation matters.  He is very detail oriented and an excellent legal researcher, which allows him to identify nuanced legal defenses for his claims and deliver results to clients.

Outside the office, Cameron enjoys spending time with his wife, two sons, and daughter. Although he spends most of his free time with his family, Cameron still enjoys an occasional round of golf and playing softball.

Lee F. Lawler joined Franklin & Prokopik as a paralegal in March of 2018.  His work is focused in the area of workers’ compensation defense.

Lee attended Towson University, where he majored in marketing and was the starting pitcher for Towson’s baseball team.  Lee had the opportunity to travel all over the country for his games, which he enjoyed thoroughly, while maintaining a full-time course load for his major.

After graduating in 2016, Lee spent time in Thailand for a post-graduate trip before returning to Maryland to begin his professional career.

Prior to joining F&P, Lee worked as a mortgage lender for Corridor Mortgage Group.  Though he enjoyed the position, he felt that due to rising mortgage rates and the decline in the housing market that pursuing a career in the legal field would be a better fit.

Lee has quickly proven to be an asset to the firm. He demonstrates strong analytical skills and enjoys problem solving, bringing these talents to bear when preparing his cases.

In his spare time, Lee plays softball (including for the F&P team) and other recreational sports and also enjoys working out.  Lee has plans to attend law school in the coming year so we may see him as an attorney in the future!
