Hong Suk Paul Chung

Hong Suk Paul Chung: Attorney with Shulman, Rogers, Gandal, Pordy & Ecker, P.A.


Paul Chung successfully represents individuals who have been seriously injured or families who have lost a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligence. With compassion and confidence, he deftly navigates his clients through the legal maze to an outcome designed to mitigate their pain and suffering. The fact that many of Paul’s clients are referred to him by his former clients is a resounding testament to his ability to affect successful outcomes on their behalf.

Paul has been involved in a wide variety of medical negligence cases against physicians, hospitals, nursing homes and other health care providers. He also handles catastrophic injury and wrongful death litigation, as well as claims arising under the Federal Tort Claims Act and Military Claims Act. Paul has extensive experience in the trial courts of Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. More recently, Paul has been involved in several significant cases, including:
•Reaching a mid-six-figure settlement on behalf of his client in a dental malpractice case well before the close of discovery;
•Negotiating and reaching a multi-million dollar settlement on behalf of a young man and his family shortly before trial;
•Resolving a medical malpractice claim against a health care provider in the District of Columbia in which a husband and father died as a result of the negligence of the health care provider;
•Reaching a settlement on behalf of the children of an elderly mother who died as a result of the negligence of a dentist.

In addition to medical malpractice and personal injury cases, Paul’s practice also encompasses a variety of commercial litigation and criminal defense matters. Prior to joining Shulman Rogers, he served as an Assistant State’s Attorney for Prince George’s County, Maryland where he prosecuted hundreds of criminal cases before the District Court and the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County. Since joining Shulman Rogers, Paul has represented individuals and entities charged with misdemeanors, including DUI/DWIs, jailable motor vehicle violations, misdemeanor assault, theft and possession of controlled dangerous substances, and serious felonies, including homicide or manslaughter by motor vehicle, sex offenses and felony assault, in State and Federal Courts in Maryland and the District of Columbia. Paul’s familiarity and capabilities with the criminal procedure and process have been invaluable to his clients.

Paul attended public schools in Maryland and graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1992. He attended Temple University School of Law, where he was a member of the International and Comparative Law Journal, obtaining his Juris Doctor degree in 1996. While in law school, he had the unique opportunity to work as a Summer Associate for a Korean-based law firm in Seoul, Korea. He is fluent in Korean.

Previously, Paul served on the Trial Courts Judicial Nominating Commission for District 11 - Montgomery County, having been appointed by then Gov. Martin O’Malley. He previously served as the Co-Chair of the Personal Injury Litigation Section of the Bar Association of Mongomery County and is currently in his second year of his two-year term of the BAMC Executive Committee.
