Stephen Markey enters his eighth year as a volunteer mediator for the Circuit Court for Baltimore City. After serving for ten years on various committees for the Bar Association of Baltimore City, Mr. Markey was appointed by Judge Holland to serve as a volunteer mediator for the Civil Court Division. As a mediator, Mr. Markey tries to help parties resolve civil disputes before they go to trial. By acting as a civil mediator, Mr. Markey and other mediators free up Circuit Court Judges to perform other judicial tasks.

Amy Orsi is entering her fifth year as a member of the Board of Governors for the Maryland Association for Justice (MAJ). The MAJ, which has a goal of “keeping families safe,” is the primary Consumer Advocates Group in Maryland. Every year Mrs. Orsi and Mr. Markey participate in MAJ’s Bike Helmet Safety program which raises money to buy and distribute bike helmets to elementary school children. Mrs. Orsi and Mr. Markey also participate in handing out the helmets after making sure they were adjusted for size.

The Law Offices of Stephen A. Markey, III, including all of its employees, has been “adopting” children for Christmas for over 10 years. Rather than holding a holiday party for staff and exchanging gifts, each year the firm adopts two or more children from the Salvation Army “Angel Tree.” It is far more gratifying to shop for a child in need than for each other.

Sex abuse by healthcare providers

Since 1987, when Steve Markey was first appointed to the Board of Directors and was General Counsel to PACA (People Against Child Abuse), the Law Offices of Stephen A. Markey, III PC has been handling civil lawsuits on behalf of victims of sexual abuse. To date the firm has recovered millions of dollars for victims and been able to hold abusers, and their employers and enablers where appropriate, accountable when the criminal justice system often fails. In addition to suing the perpetrator for intentional assault and battery, we have often been successful in holding employers or supervisors for negligent hiring, failing to adequately check backgrounds, failing to supervise, failing to investigate complaints on suspicious activity, failing to have a nurse present during exams and failing to report suspected or known abuse. Most of the perpetrators had been engaging in inappropriate activity for years with multiple prior victims and almost always with warning signs available to employers and institutions that put profit over safety.

The recent case of Dr. Nikita Levy from Johns Hopkins is all too familiar to Steve Markey. Based on what has been published to date it appears Dr. Levy has a long list of victims, most of which do not yet know he inappropriately videotaped and photographed gynecological exams. The investigation by the police is ongoing so it is too early to identify all the victims. However, if history and experience are repeated, there will be multiple persons and institutions responsible. The Law Offices of Stephen A. Markey, III has been asked to investigate possible claims against Dr. Levy and others. While Dr. Levy can no longer be held criminally responsible because he committed suicide, the victims will be able to pursue his estate and anyone or institution with culpability.
