George G. Tankard


I am driven by the strong desire to provide passionate and compassionate legal representation to deserving victims injured by the wrongdoing of others.

As a manager of the Yost Legal Group’s mass tort division, I fight to obtain justice for everyday individuals injured by the defective drugs and medical devices of big companies that care only about profits, not people. I have helped recover millions of dollars for the innocent victims of asbestos exposure, defective hip implants, and other harmful products. I serve in leadership positions in complex cases filed throughout the country to obtain the justice my clients deserve.

Locally, I am active in the Baltimore City and Maryland State Bar Associations. I have served as co-chair of the Baltimore Bar Association’s pro bono committee to ensure that low-income members of our community have access to the legal services they need. I was honored to receive the Volunteer of the Year Award from Senior Legal Services for my representation of low-income seniors. I also recently served on the Board of Governors of the Maryland State Bar Association, as a representative for the First District (Baltimore City). My passion is to speak up for people seeking justice who would otherwise not have a voice and not be heard. I share this passion by making presentations to other attorneys so that they will be better equipped to represent those individuals who need help in their fight for the justice they deserve, including refugees and asylum seekers.

I earned my law degree from the University of Virginia, after completing my undergraduate studies at the College of William & Mary, where I was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. My practice is nationwide in scope and I am admitted to practice in Maryland, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, Massachusetts and Texas, as well as several U.S. Federal Courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. I reside in Baltimore and enjoy reading, sports, music, traveling and spending time with friends and my family, which now includes an Australian Shepherd. I am a long-time runner and participate in several races every year, including the Baltimore Running Festival.
