The History of Bennett & Heyman, P.A

Bennett & Heyman, P.A. can trace its heritage back to 1870, when Wilsons Burns Trundle founded a law office in Baltimore City.

In 1902, Trundle’s nephew, Edwin Trundle Dickerson, began to practice law with his uncle, which, in 1911, led to a more formal law partnership under the name of Trundle & Dickerson. That same year, Trundle was elected president of the Baltimore City Bar Association.

Wilson Burns Trundle died in 1914. Five years later, Edwin Trundle Dickerson formed a partnership with Harry Whinna Nice. In 1928, Max Sokol joined the firm of Dickerson & Nice to form Dickerson, Nice & Sokol. Subsequently, in 1936, Dickerson was appointed to the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City and served there until 1948, when he returned to practice with Dickerson, Nice & Sokol.

After forming his partnership with Dickerson, Nice was appointed a member of the Appeals Tax Court for Baltimore City. From 1935 to 1939, Nice served as Maryland’s third Republican Governor. After leaving office, he continued to practice with Dickerson, Nice & Sokol until his death in 1941.

Deely K. Nice, Harry’s nephew, was admitted to the bar in 1931 and joined the firm. He was subsequently appointed to three different judicial positions: Chief Justice of the People’s Court of Baltimore City, Chief Justice of the Appeal Tax Court , and Associate Judge of the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City. Judge Nice held the latter position until his death in 1956.

During Nice’s tenure, Emanuel H. Horn joined the organization in 1946. He continued their tradition of excellence in civil litigation practice, and his then-son-in-law, Roger J. Bennett, joined the firm in 1968.

Senior Partner Roger Bennett established the firm’s reputation of preeminence in personal injury litigation, particularly medical malpractice. Today, the firm continues as Bennett & Heyman, P.A., with principals Roger J. Bennett and Frederic C. Heyman.
