On May 5, 2016, The Daily Record presented Ferguson, Schetelich & Ballew’s President, Robert L. Ferguson, Jr. with its “Leadership in Law” award at a banquet in Annapolis. The award honors “active mentors, fostering strong, future generations of professional and community leaders.” Recognizing Mr. Ferguson’s significant and ongoing commitment to the Maryland legal community, as well as a number of other honorees, the Daily Record’s Suzanne Fischer-Huettner said in a press release that honorees “work tirelessly to uphold high legal standards and improve communities throughout Maryland.”
The Leadership in Law Award required significant support from the legal community. In support of his nomination for the Award, Federal and State Judges from across Maryland wrote letters of recommendation. These letters, accompanied by testimonials from Mr. Ferguson’s colleagues in the legal community, exemplified his highly-respected status among his peers and clearly showed his leadership in law.
Mr. Ferguson is a Maryland State Committee member of the American College of Trial Lawyers. He also sits on the Governor’s Trial Courts Judicial Nominating Commission for the Fourteenth Judicial District, Baltimore City (a position he has held for the past seventeen years), he is the Chairman of the Court of Appeals’ Character Committee for the Sixth Appellate Circuit, and is an active Mediator for the Circuit Court of Baltimore City. Mr. Ferguson is a past President of the Bar Association of Baltimore City and a recipient of the Charles H. Dorsey, Jr. Mentor Award from the same.
In 1995, Mr. Ferguson was the recipient of The Maryland Bar Foundation Special Outstanding Achievement Award for Professional Legal Excellence. He has achieved an AV-Preeminent rating from Martindale Hubble. He has also served as a Maryland Institute Continuing Professional Education for Lawyers (MICPEL) instructor in Trial Advocacy, Discovery Practice and Motions Practice.
